  • Publication number: 20180094278
    Abstract: Compositions and methods for controlling pests are provided. The methods involve transforming organisms with a nucleic acid sequence encoding an insecticidal protein. In particular, the nucleic acid sequences are useful for preparing plants and microorganisms that possess insecticidal activity. Thus, transformed bacteria, plants, plant cells, plant tissues and seeds are provided. Compositions are isolated insecticidal proteins and nucleic acids. The sequences find use in the construction of expression vectors for subsequent transformation into organisms of interest, as probes for the isolation of other homologous (or partially homologous) genes. The insecticidal proteins find use in controlling or killing lepidopteran, coleopteran, dipteran, fungal, hemipteran, and nematode pest populations and for producing compositions with insecticidal activity.

  • Patent number: 9561875
    Abstract: A binding medium clamping mechanism includes a rotatable clamping element configured to clamp a binding medium, a driving element configured to drive the clamping element, a one-way transmission element connected between the driving element and the clamping element, and a rotatable clamping head opening element configured to open the clamping element, wherein in the case that the clamping element rotates in a first rotation direction to a position for waiting to clamp the binding medium, the positions of the clamping element and the clamping head opening element interferes with each other, to open the clamping element, and in the case that the clamping element rotates in a second rotation direction opposite to the first rotation direction, the clamping head opening element is pushed by the clamping element to rotate in the first rotation direction to move out of a moving track of the clamping element.

  • Patent number: 9437068
    Abstract: A cash replenishment method for financial self-service equipment. The method comprises: by using a general solution method for directly solving an integral solution of a linear equation with n unknowns, obtaining a general solution formula of the integral solution of the linear equation with n unknowns; then, in accordance with a principle that the cash replenishment amount of each denomination must be greater than zero and less than the number of remaining available banknotes of this denomination in self-service equipment, solving a limiting range of free factors in the general solution formula, so that all cash replenishment solutions are obtained; and lastly, in accordance with a cash replenishment principle of a self-service equipment system, obtaining an optimal cash replenishment solution. The cash replenishment method can find out all cash replenishment solutions without using an exhaustive attack method, and can achieve rapid and highly-efficient cash replenishment.
