Atlas Gorge Remakes Pipeline in Call of Duty Advanced Warfare
Pipeline is a dark, gloomy map with two large warehouses where most of the fighting occurs. It has a small room players can hide in, ladders that lead to catwalks above the ground, and a turret scorestreak.
Seven putative chitin deacetylases (CDAs) are annotated in the genome of Aspergillus fumigatus. We analyzed the function of two of them, Cod4 and Cod7. Our results indicate that Cod4 is an active CDA and contributes to polarity in A. fumigatus.
Cell wall analysis
The cell wall contents of the wild-type and the cod4 and cod7 mutants were measured by IR spectrophotometry. The acetylation degree of the cell wall chitin was also determined. The results showed that the cod4 mutation caused a decrease in glycoprotein and a-glucan, but increased b-glucan and chitin. The cod7 mutant had a similar effect, but it was less severe.
The putative CDA gene was identified in the genome database of A. fumigatus 293 using a BLASTp search. A 1-Kb DNA fragment containing the upstream noncoding region of the cod4 gene was amplified with the primers 5′-CTTCCTAATACCGCCTAGTC-3′ and 5′-GGACCCCAGACGACTGCATG-3′. The resulting PCR products were subjected to Southern blot analysis.
Plant-Layout is a software that allows one to study the concentration dynamics of developmental regulators over the 2D structural model of a tissue. Its main features include: a, pre-processing confocal images; b, identification of cells as connected components and getting unique indexes for each cell; c, determination of quantitative and qualitative characteristics for the cell walls (such as their orientation); d, embedding the quantitative and qualitative characteristics into a mathematical model.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare may be a glimpse into the future of the franchise, but that doesn’t stop Sledgehammer Games from drawing inspiration from the past. The Atlas Gorge map, included in the various collector’s editions of the game, is a remake of the Pipeline map from Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. The map is set in an abandoned rail yard and features two large warehouses. One of the warehouses has small rooms players can hide in and ladders that lead to catwalks. Another area of the map is surrounded by overgrown grassland.
We tested growth rate of the cod4 mutant and the revertant strain on solid complete medium at both 37degC and 50degC. The revertant strain had a faster growth rate than the cod4 mutant.
Pipeline is a gloomy setting centered around two large warehouses. Its layout encourages frantic close-quarters action and features a series of small rooms where players can hide. It also has a catwalk, ladders, and an underground tunnel that leads to the north and south sections of the map.
The frq10 null mutant produces a cyclic rhythm of conidiation, but the period is less variable than that of the wild-type. It can be damped out by constant light or entrained by short pulses of high temperature. However, it still lacks a definite periodicity and does not respond to nutritional fluctuations.
A deletion of cod4 or cod7 caused abnormal polarity and increased conidiation. The expression level of genes related to polarity was also higher in these mutants. These results suggest that polarity requires a new differentiation from normal conidial germination. To confirm this, suppression subtractive hybridization was performed during MC compared to normal conidiation of M. anisopliae. Among the genes tested, mmc showed significantly higher expression during MC.
In this study, the cDNA of cod4 and cod7 was cloned and expressed in E. coli BL21(DE3). Recombinant cod4 and cod7 proteins containing a short N-terminal His-tag were purified to homogeneity using Ni2+ affinity chromatography. The resulting protein was dialyzed and lyophilized. The three-dimensional structure of the two proteins was simulated with SWISS-MODEL. Both proteins have a similar folding pattern and resemble the bacterial CDA HpPgdA. Moreover, they contain the catalytic residues T8-D12-H248, which are involved in deacetylation and Zn2+ binding.
Pipeline is a large map with several buildings, including big warehouses and tunnels. Its layout supports a variety of play-styles, with the buildings encouraging frantic close-quarters action and the open street supporting mid to long range action. Good sniping spots can be found behind the two buildings towards the center of the map. This level also features the M1014 w/ Silencer. This gun can be found inside the southern warehouse on the ground floor.
