The complete sequence of the genome of an aerobic hyper-thermophilic crenarchaeon, Aeropyrum pernix K1, which optimally grows at 95 degrees C, has been determined by the whole genome shotgun method with some modifications. The entire length of the genome was 1,669,695 bp. The authenticity of the entire sequence was supported by restriction analysis of long(More)
The complete genomic sequence of an aerobic thermoacidophilic crenarchaeon, Sulfolobus tokodaii strain7 which optimally grows at 80 degrees C, at low pH, and under aerobic conditions, has been determined by the whole genome shotgun method with slight modifications. The genomic size was 2,694,756 bp long and the G + C content was 32.8%. The following(More)
We have examined the effects of schizophrenomimetic drugs including phencyclidine (PCP) and methamphetamine (MAP) on cortical and striatal dopamine (DA) metabolism using an in vivo dialysis technique in the rat. An acute systemic injection of PCP (2.5-10 mg/kg, intraperitoneally (i.p.)) dramatically increased concentrations of DA, 3,4-dihydroxy-phenylacetic(More)
Solar neutrino measurements from 1258 days of data from the Super-Kamiokande detector are presented. The measurements are based on recoil electrons in the energy range 5.0-20.0 MeV. The measured solar neutrino flux is 2.32+/-0.03(stat)+0.08-0.07(syst)x10(6) cm(-2) x s(-1), which is 45.1+/-0.5(stat)+1.6-1.4(syst)% of that predicted by the BP2000 SSM. The day(More)
A search for the relic neutrinos from all past core-collapse supernovae was conducted using 1496 days of data from the Super-Kamiokande detector. This analysis looked for electron-type antineutrinos that had produced a positron with an energy greater than 18 MeV. In the absence of a signal, 90% C.L. upper limits on the total flux were set for several(More)

Super-Kamiokande (SK) can search for weakly interacting massive particles (WIMPs) by detecting neutrinos produced from WIMP annihilations occurring inside the Sun. In this analysis, we include neutrino events with interaction vertices in the detector in addition to upward-going muons produced in the surrounding rock. Compared to the previous result, which(More)
Retinoic acid is known to play an important role during development of central nervous system. In order to clarify function of retinoic acid during the development, we investigated expression pattern of the chick retinoic acid receptor subtype beta gene by an in situ hybridization method. We found that expression of the beta gene is localized in neural tube(More)
The phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K) signaling pathway is important for the regulation of a number of cellular responses. Serine/threonine kinase Akt (protein kinase B; PKB) is downstream of PI3K and activated by growth factors. This study found that erythropoietin (EPO) induced tyrosine phosphorylation of Akt in a time- and dose-dependent manner in(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the feasibility and safety of transverse fundal incision with manual placental removal in women with placenta praevia and possible placenta accreta. DESIGN Case series. SETTING Four level-three Japanese obstetric centres. POPULATION Thirty-four women with prior caesarean section and placenta praevia that widely covers the(More)
