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)
Neural development is controlled by region-specific factors that regulate cell proliferation, migration and differentiation. Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) is a neuropeptide that exerts a wide range of effects on different cell types in the brain as early as the fetal stage. Here we review current knowledge concerning several(More)
LAP1s (lamina-associated polypeptide 1s) are type 2 integral membrane proteins with a single membrane-spanning region of the inner nuclear membrane. We report here on the cloning of the full-length cDNA of human LAP1B (huLAP1B) that encodes 584 amino acids. The sequence homology between the predicted rat LAP1B and huLAP1B was found to be 73.6%. A(More)
Activity-dependent neurotrophic protein (ADNP) was discovered as a novel response gene for vasoactive intestinal polypeptide. We have reported that PACAP strongly stimulated ADNP mRNA expression in a mouse neuron/glial cell culture; however, the distribution of ADNP in the brain and its possible co-expression with the PACAP receptor (PAC1R) are unknown. In(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)
Pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide (PACAP) is known to participate in the regulation of neuronal proliferation and differentiation. While these processes are considered to be mediated via PACAP's actions on the PACAP-specific receptor, PAC1R, the precise distribution of PAC1R during neurodevelopment has not yet to be elucidated in detail.(More)
Measurements of protein-conjugated acrolein (PC-Acro), IL-6, and C-reactive protein (CRP) in plasma were useful for identifying silent brain infarction with high sensitivity and specificity. The aim of this study was to determine whether acrolein causes increased production of IL-6 and CRP in thrombosis model mice and cultured cells. In mice with(More)
