  • Publication number: 20210326333
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to update for a configuration file. In an embodiment, a computer-implemented method is disclosed. According to the method, a first container image and a second container image are obtained. The first container image comprise a first sequence of layers built based on a sequence of commands in a configuration file, respectively, and the second container image comprise a second sequence of layers built based on the sequence of commands, respectively. File dependency between at least two commands of the sequence of commands is determined by comparing files associated with the first sequence of layers with files associated with the second sequence of layers. An update to the sequence of commands in the configuration file is determined based on the file dependency. In other embodiments, a system and a computer program product are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11124785
    Abstract: There are gluten-degrading enzymes found in Rothia species bacteria that are subtilisins that belonging to the S8A family of serine protease family. The Rothia sp. derived subtilisin-like enzymes have the conserved catalytic triad composed of a Ser, His, and Asp residues that is characteristic of the serine protease family. The Rothia subtilisin enzymes are potent at cleaving proline-containing proteins, cleaving the second peptide bond after proline in the XPX1 motif, where X is any amino acid, P is proline and X1 is a hydrophobic amino acid, e.g. the XPQ motif, where Q is glutamine. Embodiments herein provide isolated enzyme compositions and formulations comprising subtilisins gluten-degrading enzyme from a Rothia species bacteria. Also provided herein are methods of treatment of celiac disease or a related disorder, treatment of gluten-containing foodstuff, degrading and/or detoxifying gluten comprising the subtilisins gluten-degrading enzyme and/or compositions.

  • Publication number: 20210141562
    Abstract: A method, system and computer program for command output management in a command line interface. The method comprises displaying a prompt for command-inputting in a current line in a first area in the command line interface. The method further comprises receiving a command entered in the current line. And method further comprises displaying an output generated from the execution of the command in a second area separated from the first area in the command line interface.
