We used the whole-genome sequencing data for in silico determination of MLST STs; virulence factors (lmb, gapC, cba, cbp, fbp, sagA, slo, hylB, spegg, sicG, fbsA, pavA, fnbA, fnbB, gfbA, scpA, scpB, bca, cylE, ska, skc and skg) (22,35); and superantigens (speA, speB, speC, speF, spegg, speH, speI, speJ, speL, mf-2, mf-3, and smeZ) (21,23).
All 122 isolates carried virulence factors gapC, hylB, Imb, sagA, scpA, scpB, ska, skc, skg, and slo; however, virulence factors cba, cfb, cylE, fbsA, fnbA, and pavA were universally absent.
The GAPC offers a guaranteed $150,000 in cash payouts for the week of poker events, all while offering affordable buy-ins in the $50-$120 range.
The event offers GAPC ticket holders 14 tournaments, including a $50,000 National Championship event only available to players that qualified through World Tavern Poker and Eastern Poker Tour.
In addition to the poker tournaments, the GAPC will feature several parties, including a 1980s Rock Karaoke party and celebrations at Vegas hot spots Blondies and The London Club.
The number of people in the world who were living with HIV infection in 1995 was variously estimated to be between 13 million (Murray and Lopez 1996) and 20 million (Global AIDS Policy Coalition, or GAPC).
In Africa, UNAIDS and the GAPC agree on estimates that are 40 percent larger than those of Murray and Lopez and Bongaarts.
Although Murray and Lopez and GAPC both project a vanishing AIDS death rate in EECA through the year 2020 (figure 1.10), more recent information suggests a larger and potentially explosive epidemic.
