We propose a new principle for fabrication of size-tunable fluidic nano- and microchannels with a ubiquitous green material, water. Grooves filled with a solution are spontaneously formed on the surface of ice when an appropriate dopant is incorporated. Sucrose doping allows the development of grooves with lengths of 300 μm along the boundaries of ice(More)
We have established a precise, rapid, simple and practical HLA class I DNA typing method using the microtitre plate-reverse hybridization assay (MRHA), which enables us to perform simultaneous DNA typing of the HLA-A, -B and -C loci using the same PCR parameters and hybridization conditions. PCR-amplified products for the HLA-A, -B and -C loci were(More)
We have established a precise, rapid, simple and economical subtyping method for alleles encoding the HLA-A2 and -B40 antigens using microtiter plate-reverse hybridization assay (MRHA), which is based on the general principle of HLA oligotyping by reverse dot blot hybridization. Amino-modified sequence-specific oligonucleotide (SSO) probes were immobilized(More)
We analyzed the frequencies and haplotypes of DQA1*03 and *05 subtypes, DQA1*03011 or DQA1*0302 and DQA1*0501 or DQA1*0503, respectively, differing only at codon 160 in the non-polymorphic third exon of the DQA1 gene. Of these, 1,862 and 337 individuals selected as DQA1*03- and DQA1*05-positive samples, respectively among 2,215 unrelated Japanese were typed(More)
A cadmium-resistant strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae produces a cadmium metallothionein encoded by the CUP1 gene as does a copper-resistant strain. The mechanism of expression of the gene is inducible by copper ions in the copper-resistant strain. However, assays of CUP1-specific mRNA revealed that the transcription of the CUP1 gene in the(More)
