Jasmonic acid (JA) and methyl jasmonate (MeJA), collectively known as JAs, regulate diverse physiological processes in plants, including the response to wounding. Recent reports suggest that a cyclopentenone precursor of JA, 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid (OPDA), can also induce gene expression. However, little is known about the physiological significance of(More)
Jasmonic acid (JA) is a lipid-derived signal that regulates plant defense responses to biotic stress. Here, we report the characterization of a JA-deficient mutant of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) that lacks local and systemic expression of defensive proteinase inhibitors (PIs) in response to wounding. Map-based cloning studies demonstrated that this(More)

Nutritional guidance and diet control play important roles in the treatment of obesity and non-alcoholic fatty liver. However, in Japan, nutritional guidance is difficult to provide in practice. Therefore, we evaluated the effects of providing the ‘once-a-day’ intervention of a healthy lunch on various metabolic parameters. For a 1-month preparatory period,(More)
The RTX respirator is a biphasic external cuirass-style ventilator that supports both inspiration and expiration at various cycle rates and pressures, as well as allowing application of the vibration and cough modes. With this respirator, the duration and pressure can be altered in both the inspiratory and expiratory phases, and it can promote the removal(More)
Background and Objective: Atrial fibrillation is a common complication after lung resection. We sought to determine the relationship between low-dose landiolol only intraoperatively administration and the incidence of atrial fibrillation development in patients who did not have atrial fibrillation before undergoing lung resection. Methods: Forty-five(More)
