Using a high-resolution mapping approach, we identified a candidate gene for ZYMV resistance in cucumber. Our findings should assist the development of high-versatility molecular markers for MAS for ZYMV resistance. Zucchini yellow mosaic virus (ZYMV) causes significant disease, which leads to fruit yield loss in cucurbit crops. Since ZYMV resistance is(More)
We have proposed that the excellent blood compatibility of poly(2-methoxyethylacrylate (MEA)) is caused by freezing bound water contained in it on the basis of results on platelet activation (Tanaka and Mochizuki, J Biomed Mater Res A 2004; 68:684-695). To clarify the applicability of this mechanism to other indexes for blood compatibility, the relationship(More)
The resistance of random copolymers of BMA and CMB against biofouling was evaluated. The amount of proteins adsorbed onto the CMB copolymers was smaller than that onto other polymers (non-ionic polymers and copolymers of ordinary ionic monomers and BMA) and decreased with an increase in the content of CMB residues. Furthermore, there was a dramatic decrease(More)
Previously, we reported that poly(2-methoxyethylacrylate) (PMEA) showed excellent blood compatibility and implied that the water structure in PMEA contributed to the blood compatibility. In this study, the relationship between the water structure and the blood compatibility is clarified by studying the influence of the monomer composition of(More)
Diblock copolymers composed of 2-methoxyethylacrylate (MEA) and 2-hydroxyethylmethacrylate (HEMA) were firstly prepared (the composition ratio = 90/10, 79/21, 66/34, and 48/52 mol/mol) by anion living polymerization. ESCA analysis of their surface structures (dry state) revealed that PMEA segment was segregated to the top surface in all of the polymers,(More)
A new multiple-valued circuit based on dual-rail differential logic is proposed for crosstalk noise reduction. Since a dual-rail complementary duplication is performed by using two differential-pair circuits (DPCs), noise effect is distributed to only one DPC, if common-mode noise is applied to dual-rail input lines. The dual-rail complementary duplicated(More)
