Experiments were conducted to examine the relationship between an onset of diapause and dopamine (DA) content in the cabbage armyworm Mamestra brassicae during pupation. The DA levels were significantly higher in haemolymph, integument and brain-central nervous system of diapause-destined pupae than in non-diapause-destined pupae. The elevated level of the(More)
The silkworm, Bombyx mori, enters diapause in the early embryonic stage. Embryonic diapause is induced by incubating eggs of the maternal generation at high temperature (diapause type), whereas incubation at low temperature results in non-diapausing progeny (non-diapause type). Measurement of catecholamine concentrations in haemolymph and(More)
It is demonstrated that electrochemical hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) proceeds very efficiently at Au electrode, an inert substrate for HER, modified with BNNS, an insulator. This combination has been reported to be an efficient electrocatalyst for oxygen reduction reaction. Higher efficiency is achieved by using the size controlled BNNS (<1 μm) for the(More)

Polar interactions such as electrostatic forces and hydrogen bonds play an essential role in biological molecular recognition. On a protein surface, polar interactions occur mostly in a hydrophobic environment because nonpolar amino acid residues cover ~75% of the protein surface. We report that ionic interactions on a hydrophobic surface are modulated by(More)
