Soluble egg shell membrane protein (SEP) prepared from the egg shell membrane by performic acid oxidation and pepsin digestion was applied to prepare a membrane conjugated with pepsin-solubilized collagen (PSC) by cross-linking with water-soluble carbodiimide. SEP enabled a conjugated membrane to be constructed with a well-developed network structure having(More)
Ossein gelatin (OG) and low-molecular-weight ossein gelatin (LOG) were conjugated with a glucose/fructose stearic acid monoester (GE/FE), which had been prepared from the hydrolysate of a sucrose stearic acid diester, by the Maillard reaction to improve their physical properties. The molar ratio of each conjugate (GE/FE-OG or GE/FE-LOG) was about 1:1, and(More)
Yohkoh Legacy data Archive (YLA) is one of the first group of the Resident Archives (RAs) selected for funding for NASA's Virtual Observatories for Heliophysics Data program. YLA provides the best corrected data set of solar X-ray images and spectra from the Yohkoh satellite with user-friendly web interface. As a RA, we take responsibility to keep our(More)
Fog droplets in the atmosphere are first produced by the activation of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN), which are originally some ionic compound. Subsequently, the nuclei grow by vapor diffusion. Fog droplets are polluted through the activation process and successive diffusion growth and residence (post activation). We cannot distinguish the effects of the(More)
The XRT Synoptic Composite Image Archive (SCIA) is a storage and gallery of X-ray full-Sun images obtained through the synoptic program of the X-Ray Telescope (XRT) onboard the Hinode satellite. The archived images provide a quick history of solar activity through the daily and monthly layout pages and long-term data for morphological and quantitative(More)
Water samples from radiation and upslope types of fog were collected at Takanosu Basin and Hachimantai mountain range of Akita Prefecture in northern Japan, respectively. The effect of the long-range transport of pollutants from the Asian Continent to the basin and the mountain range on the chemical characteristics of two types of fog was studied using(More)
Pepsin-solubilized collagen (PSC) was conjugated with carboxymethyl dextran (CMD) using cyanogen bromide to obtain a PSC-CMD film having improved physical properties, physiological properties, and cell affinity. The conjugation was confirmed by the loss of the alpha- and beta-subunit chains and the polymerized band on SDS-PAGE, and by a decrease in the(More)
