The effects of tree height on shoot traits may in some cases differ in magnitude and direction from the effects of light. Nevertheless, general patterns of change in shoot traits in relation to variations in height and light have not so far been revealed. A comprehensive analysis of the differences between the effects of height and light on a range of leaf(More)
Holonomic quantum computation is analyzed from geometrical viewpoint. We develop an optimization scheme in which an arbitrary unitary gate is implemented with a small circle in a complex projective space. Exact solutions for the Hadamard, CNOT and 2-qubit discrete Fourier transformation gates are explicitly constructed. Recently quantum computer attracts(More)
Wind turbine generators and PV system causes fluctuating power condition. Therefore, the fluctuating power causes frequency and voltage fluctuations. In order to solve this problem, we propose a new power supply system by using renewable energy power production plant in isolated island. The feature of this system is to use hydrogen production unit and fuel(More)
N-(2-Chlorobenzyl)-substituted hydroxamate, readily produced by hydrolysis of ketoclomazone, was identified as an inhibitor of 1-deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate synthase (DXS), with an IC50 value of 1.0 μM. The compound inhibited the growth of Haemophilus influenzae. A convenient spectroscopic method for assaying DXS using NADPH-lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is(More)
Orbit, a Drosophila ortholog of microtubule plus-end enriched protein CLASP, plays an important role in many developmental processes involved in microtubule dynamics. Previous studies have shown that Orbit is required for asymmetric stem cell division and cystocyte divisions in germline cysts and for the development of microtubule networks that interconnect(More)
Peripheral microtubules (MTs) near the cell cortex are essential for the positioning and continuous constriction of the contractile ring (CR) in cytokinesis. Time-lapse observations of Drosophila male meiosis showed that myosin II was first recruited along the cell cortex independent of MTs. Then, shortly after peripheral MTs made contact with the(More)
We found a new illusion that makes the distance between two small dots appear longer. When two of the four dots comprising a square shape are surrounded by thick circles, the diagonal distance between the two dots (length of the "test" diagonal) subjectively becomes longer than the distance between the dots without surrounding circles (length of the(More)
