Diffusion rate and restricted diffusion of cell-associated water in ripening barley seeds were examined by NMR microscopy using the pulse gradient spin-echo and the pulse gradient stimulated-echo methods. Changes in the mobility of cell-associated water and properties of cell membranes during ontogeny seed were assessed. Diffusion coefficients for bulk(More)
In this paper, a flexible robotic assembly system with decentralized architecture is presented. The system is designed to achieve high reconfigurability so that it can adapt to changes in manufacturing environment; a new robot can be easily installed to the system and execute assembly tasks immediately, together with other devices. For easier(More)
We report a rare case of large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the breast. A 63-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with a firm mass in the right breast. Mammography revealed a high-density mass with specula, and ultrasonography showed a heterogeneous hypoechoic mass with irregular margin and posterior acoustical shadowing. She underwent(More)
Synchrotron small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) at the SPring-8 40B2 and 45XU beamlines was carried out on aqueous solutions of (PEG-P(Asp(Bzl))): partially benzyl-esterified poly(ethylene glycol)-block-poly(aspartic acid) with LE540 loaded up to 8.3 wt %, where LE540 is a very hydrophobic retinoid antagonist drug. The scattering profiles showed(More)
Pseudoangiomatous stromal hyperplasia (PASH) of the breast is a common microscopic lesion that is found at breast biopsy, and presents with proliferation of the stromal cells and slit-like pseudovascular spaces with endothelial-like spindle cells. In contrast, nodular PASH is relatively rare. We report here a case of nodular PASH with multiple palpable(More)
