Plastids bear their own genome, organized into DNA-protein complexes (nucleoids). Recently, we identified a DNA-binding protease (CND41) in the chloroplast nucleoids of cultured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) cells. In this study, we examine the biochemical function of this novel DNA-binding protease, particularly in senescent leaves, because antisense(More)
The analysis of epileptic discharges in magnetoencephalography with minimum norm estimates (MNE) is expected to provide more precise localization of epileptic discharges compared with electroencephalographic estimations. However, the clinical feasibility of MNE remains unclear. In this study, we aimed to elucidate the onset and propagation patterns of(More)
Anti-ganglioside antibodies have been reported in various peripheral neuropathies, including Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy, multifocal motor neuropathy, Fisher syndrome, monoclonal gammopathy-associated neuropathy, and other idiopathic neuropathies. To our knowledge, there has been no report of(More)
We estimated the overall open-loop gain of the rapidly acting arterial pressure control system without surgically or pharmacologically opening the reflex loop in rabbits. Animals anesthetized by intravenous injection of Nembutal (27.5 mg·kg−1 body weight) and heparinized were bled by 2 ml·kg−1 body weight within 1–2 s through a catheter inserted into the(More)
The hippocampus is well known to be involved in memory, as well as in perceptual processing. To date, the electrophysiological process by which unilateral hippocampal lesions, such as hippocampal sclerosis (HS), modulate the auditory processing remains unknown. Auditory-evoked magnetic fields (AEFs) are valuable for evaluating auditory functions, because(More)
