Equations describing the motion of the dinoflagellate Prorocentrum minimum, which has both a longitudinal and a transverse flagellum, were formulated and examined using numerical calculations based on hydrodynamic resistive force theory. The calculations revealed that each flagellum has its own function in cell locomotion. The transverse flagellum works as(More)
BACKGROUND Factors associated with liver stiffness (LS) are unknown and normal reference values for LS have not been established. Individuals at high risk for alcoholic (ALD) and non-alcoholic fatty (NAFLD) liver disease need to be non-invasively discriminated during routine health checks. Factors related to LS measured using a FibroScan and normal(More)

We examined nitrification in the euphotic zone, its impact on the nitrogen cycles, and the controlling factors along a 7500 km transect from the equatorial Pacific Ocean to the Arctic Ocean. Ammonia oxidation occurred in the euphotic zone at most of the stations. The gene and transcript abundances for ammonia oxidation indicated that the shallow clade(More)
The influence of gantry inclination on image quality was examined in the Y and Z directions and an increase in the volume of a scan part. FWHM (full width at half maximum) in the Y direction decreased at the rate of 2.53%, which was caused by leaving the center of the gantry, and spatial resolution was improved. FWHM (y) in the Z direction increased at a(More)
The proposed plan for enrichment of the Sulu Sea, Philippines, a region of rich marine biodiversity, with thousands of tonnes of urea in order to stimulate algal blooms and sequester carbon is flawed for multiple reasons. Urea is preferentially used as a nitrogen source by some cyanobacteria and dinoflagellates, many of which are neutrally or positively(More)
—A multi-spectral classification scheme is proposed to identify areas with red tides through the satellite ocean color imagery by the sea-viewing wide field-of-view sensor (SeaWiFS). The eastern Seto Inland Sea, where serious red tides frequently occur, was studied. Colors of the water around a red tide or those emerging before/after that are referred to as(More)
