This paper describes two humanoid robots developed in the Humanoid Robotics Institute, Waseda University. Hadaly-2 is intended to realize information interaction with humans by integrating environmental recognition with vision, conversation capability (voice recognition, voice synthesis), and gesture behaviors. It also possesses physical interaction(More)
Membrane-bound proteases are involved in various regulatory functions. The N-terminal region of PH1510p (1510-N) from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus horikoshii is a serine protease with a catalytic Ser-Lys dyad (Ser97 and Lys138), and specifically cleaves the C-terminal hydrophobic region of the p-stomatin PH1511p. In a form of human hemolytic(More)
Stomatin, prohibitin, flotillin, and HflK/C (SPFH) domain proteins are found in the lipid raft microdomains of various cellular membranes. Stomatin/STOPP (stomatin operon partner protein) gene pairs are present in both archaeal and bacterial species, and their protein products may be involved in the quality control of membrane proteins. In the present(More)
Flap endonuclease-1 (FEN-1) plays important roles with DNA polymerases in DNA replication, repair and recombination. FEN-1 activity is elevated by the presence of a 1 nucleotide expansion at the 3′ end in the upstream primer of substrates called “structures with a 1 nt 3′-flap”, which appear to be the most preferable substrates for FEN-1; however, it is(More)
Archaea-specific D-family DNA polymerase (PolD) forms a dimeric heterodimer consisting of two large polymerase subunits and two small exonuclease subunits. According to the protein-protein interactions identified among the domains of large and small subunits of PolD, a symmetrical model for the domain topology of the PolD holoenzyme is proposed. The(More)

Membrane-bound proteases are involved in various regulatory functions. A previous report indicates that the N-terminal region of PH1510 (1510-N) from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Pyrococcus horikoshii is a serine protease with a catalytic Ser-Lys dyad (Ser97 and Lys138), and specifically cleaves the C-terminal hydrophobic region of the p-stomatin PH1511.(More)
