Teflon Photonic Crystal Fiber as Terahertz Waveguide
We demonstrate the construction of reasonably long and non-polarization changing photonic fiber waveguide using Teflon which is a readily available and highly flexible material. Due to its relativelyExpand
The penta-EF-hand protein ALG-2 interacts with a region containing PxY repeats in Alix/AIP1, which is required for the subcellular punctate distribution of the amino-terminal truncation form of
ALG-2 is a Ca(2+)-binding protein that belongs to the penta-EF-hand protein family and associates with several proteins, including annexin VII, annexin XI, and Alix/AIP1, in a Ca(2+)-dependentExpand

Abstract This study investigated the climatological pentad mean annual cycle of rainfall in Thailand and the associated atmospheric circulation fields. The data used included two different data ofExpand
Explosive speciation of Takifugu: another use of fugu as a model system for evolutionary biology.
Although the fugu Takifugu rubripes has attracted attention as a model organism for genomic studies because of its compact genome, it is not generally appreciated that there are approximately 25Expand
Detection of Rickettsia helvetica DNA from Peripheral Blood of Sika Deer (Cervus nippon yesoensis) in Japan
Partial nucleotide sequences of the citrate synthase and 17-kDa genes of Rickettsia helvetica were detected from peripheral blood samples of Sika deer (Cervus nippon yesoensis) in Hokkaido, Japan.Expand
Prognostic significance of the immunohistochemical index of survivin in glioma: a comparative study with the MIB-1 index
SummaryObjective: Survivin has been identified as a protein expressed in cancer cells and a member of the inhibitor-of-apoptosis protein family. Recent studies suggest that the expression of survivinExpand
Species phylogeny and diversification process of Northeast Asian Pungitius revealed by AFLP and mtDNA markers.
Pungitius is a highly diversified genus of sticklebacks (Gasterosteidae) occurring widely in northern parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Several ecologically and genetically divergent types that areExpand
Pollination biology of the saprophytic speciesPetrosavia sakuraii (Makino) van Steenis in Central Japan
Pollination biology of the saprophytic speciesPetrosavia sakuraii was investigated in Central Japan. The flower opens at any time of the day, and the anthers of outer stamens dehisce after about oneExpand
