Mt. Sakurajima is a volcano located about 10km east from Kagoshima University. We are continuing observation of this Sakurajima volcano with a web camera since December 2000. The picture is taken from 5:00 to 20:00 JST at 5 minutes interval, and archived in web server. The flow of volcanic plumes and meteorological clouds covering the summit are influenced(More)
A monoclonal antibody designated as RG1 was produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells from mice immunized with rat retinas. The monoclonal antibody was shown to bind to Müller cells of the rat retina by the avidin-biotin peroxidase complex method. The screening of antibody-producing hybridomas and the analysis of the monoclonal(More)
Two types of cultured oligodendrocytes (OLs) from rat optic nerve were analyzed for the distribution of actin, a major contractile protein, using immunocytochemistry. Type 1 OLs showed extensive network of processes and type 2 OLs showed elaborate membranous expansion along an extensive network. Actin was diffusely stained on an extensive network of(More)
Oligodendrocytes, the myelin-forming cells of the central nervous system, were cultured from newborn rat optic nerve employing a modified method of McCarthy and DeVellis, and cultured oligodendrocytes were analyzed for characteristic morphology and maturation events by phase contrast, MBP immunofluorescent and scanning electron microscopy. Two types of(More)
