BG60 is an important allergen of Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon) pollen, which causes allergic responses in human. It was suggested that its carbohydrate moiety may be relevant to allergic reaction (Su, S. N., Lau, G. X., Shu, P., Yang, S. Y., Huang, S. W., and Lee, Y. C. (1996) J. Allergy Clin. Immunol., in press). Therefore, the structure of the(More)
Single-spin asymmetries for semi-inclusive electroproduction of charged pions in deep-inelastic scattering of positrons are measured for the first time with transverse target polarization. The asymmetry depends on the azimuthal angles of both the pion (phi) and the target spin axis (phi(S)) about the virtual-photon direction and relative to the lepton(More)
Calcium hopantenate (HOPA) has been widely used as an activator of cerebral metabolism in Japan. However, several cases of acute encephalopathy during HOPA administration were recently reported, which were characterized by marked metabolic acidosis and hypoglycemia. The encephalopathy in these patients was named Reye-like syndrome because of the similarity(More)
We have isolated and determined the nucleotide sequence of the structural gene (sodB) coding for one of the copper/zinc-superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn-SOD) isozymes from rice plants (Oryza sativa L.). The sodB gene is split into 8 exons spread about 2 kb of the chromosomal DNA, with the coding sequence beginning in the 2nd and ending in the 8th. Although none(More)
Double-spin asymmetries of semiinclusive cross sections for the production of identified pions and kaons have been measured in deep inelastic scattering of polarized positrons on a polarized deuterium target. Five helicity distributions including those for three sea quark flavors were extracted from these data together with reanalyzed previous data for(More)
Exclusive coherent and incoherent electroproduction of the rho(0) meson from 1H and 14N targets has been studied at the HERMES experiment as a function of coherence length (l(c)), corresponding to the lifetime of hadronic fluctuations of the virtual photon, and squared four-momentum of the virtual photon (-Q2). The ratio of 14N to 1H cross sections per(More)
The Hermes experiment has investigated the tensor spin structure of the deuteron using the 27.6 GeV/c positron beam of DESY HERA. The use of a tensor-polarized deuteron gas target with only a negligible residual vector polarization enabled the first measurement of the tensor asymmetry A(d)zz and the tensor structure function b(d)1 for average values of the(More)
