Bombyx mori prohemocyte division and differentiation in individual microcultures.
We followed the fate of microcultured Bombyx mori prohemocytes in vitro. Prohemocytes isolated from larval hemolymph (day 1 of 4th instar) were maintained for 4-11 days in serum-free MGM-450 mediumExpand

Isolation and identification of the male sex pheromone of the grape borer Xylotrechus pyrrhoderus Bates (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
The sex pheromone of grape borer, Xylotrechus pyrrhoderus Bates, was isolated from body extracts and container washings of male insects, and was determined to be a mixture of (2S,3S)-octanediol (1)Expand

Analysis of interaction between molecules of Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrovirus IE-2 using a yeast two-hybrid system.
Baculovirus IE-2 protein is one of well-known transactivators. In this report, we demonstrate that Bombyx mori nucleopolyhedrovirus (BmNPV) IE-2 interacts with itself. Several clones were obtainedExpand

Protein biomarker analysis by mass spectrometry in patients with rheumatoid arthritis receiving anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha antibody therapy.
OBJECTIVE To investigate the mechanism of action of anti-tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) antibody in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), we analyzed serum or plasma proteins by massExpand

Atmospheric-operable bioactuator powered by insect muscle packaged with medium.
Despite attempts in a number of studies to utilize muscle tissue and cells as microactuators, all of the biohybrid microdevices have been operable only in the culture medium and none have worked inExpand

Room Temperature Operable Autonomously Moving Bio-Microrobot Powered by Insect Dorsal Vessel Tissue
Living muscle tissues and cells have been attracting attention as potential actuator candidates. In particular, insect dorsal vessel tissue (DVT) seems to be well suited for a bio-actuator since itExpand

A new insect cell line from the longicorn beetle Plagionotus christophi (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae)
We have established a continuous cell line from the fat body tissue of the longicorn beetle Plagionotus christophi. The cells have been serially subcultured in MGM450 medium, and the line has beenExpand
