The dissipation current waveform monitoring method is considered one of possible way as a diagnostic method for un-bridged water tree on the high-voltage class (22–77 kV) power cable. In previous CEIDP, it has reported that the amplitude and the phase of the fundamental and the 3rd harmonic components have varied with the progress of the un-bridged(More)
Neoculin is a sweet protein with a taste-modifying activity of converting sourness to sweetness. It occurs in the fruits of Curculigo latifolia, a wild plant found in tropical Asia. We successfully cultivated the plant and evaluated the production of neoculin. The neoculin content of the fruit was high for 10 weeks after flowering, following which the yield(More)
OBJECTIVE Osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are widespread disabling joint disorders that are considered to be polygenic in nature. This study investigated the spatial expression patterns of all six known human CCN genes using end-stage OA and RA joint samples. DESIGN We performed in situ hybridization and histological analysis to(More)
Deterioration with water tree phenomenon is the one of typical problem on the electrical insulation for the high-voltage class power cable. As the water tree which bridges cable insulation between inner and outer screen makes the insulation resistivity low, the conventional way, such as the leakage current measurement and so on are applicable as the(More)
Inflammatory responses in the kidney lead to tubulointerstitial fibrosis, a common feature of chronic kidney diseases. Here we examined the role of prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) in the development of tubulointerstitial fibrosis. In the kidneys of wild-type mice, unilateral ureteral obstruction leads to progressive tubulointerstitial fibrosis with macrophage(More)
