This paper presents a neural network model for technical analysis of stock market, and its application to a buying and selling timing prediction system for stock index. When the numbers of learning samples are uneven among categories, the neural network with normal learning has the problem that it tries to improve only the prediction accuracy of most(More)
Lysophospholipids (LPs), including lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), sphingosine 1-phospate (S1P), lysophosphatidylinositol (LPI), and lysophosphatidylserine (LysoPS), are bioactive lipids that transduce signals through their specific cell-surface G protein-coupled receptors, LPA1-6, S1P1-5, LPI1, and LysoPS1-3, respectively. These LPs and their receptors have(More)
Autotaxin, also known as ectonucleotide pyrophosphatase/phosphodiesterase 2 (ENPP2), is a secreted enzyme that has lysophospholipase D activity, which converts lysophosphatidylcholine to bioactive lysophosphatidic acid. Lysophosphatidic acid activates at least six G-protein coupled recpetors, which promote cell proliferation, survival, migration and muscle(More)
Although IL-17 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine reportedly involved in various autoimmune inflammatory disorders, its role remains unclear in murine models of colitis. Acute colitis was induced by 2.5% dextran sodium sulfate (DSS) treatment for 5 days. A novel sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor agonist W-061, a prototype of ONO-4641, was orally administered(More)
Ten mammalian diacylglycerol kinase (DGK) isozymes (α-κ) have been identified. Recent studies have revealed that DGK isozymes play pivotal roles in a wide variety of pathophysiological functions. Thus, it is important to be able to easily check DGK activity in each pathophysiological event. Moreover, the conventional DGK assay is quite laborious because it(More)
Lipid biology continues to emerge as an area of significant therapeutic interest, particularly as the result of an enhanced understanding of the wealth of signaling molecules with diverse physiological properties. This growth in knowledge is epitomized by lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), which functions through interactions with at least six cognate G(More)
Structure-activity relationship (SAR) of sphingosine-1-phosphate receptor agonists with a dihydronaphthalene scaffold was investigated. Compound 1 was modified to improve S1P(1) agonistic activity and in vivo peripheral lymphocyte lowering (PLL) activity without impairing selectivity over S1P(3) agonistic activity. A detailed SAR study of the terminal(More)
This paper proposes a novel e-textile-based pressure sensor. Textile is a common material in our life, used in such items as sheets, seats, and clothing. If these items are equipped with sensor functions, they can invisibly assist humans without significant lifestyle changes. Our sensor is suitable for mass production and durable in daily hard use cases.(More)
