The barn owl uses the interaural time difference (ITD) to determine the azimuth of a sound source. Narrowband ITD-sensitive neurons cannot distinguish a given ITD from those that produce the same interaural phase difference (phase ambiguity). Neurons in the external nucleus of the inferior colliculus (ICx) resolve the ambiguity by gathering ITD information(More)
The fluidity of human erythrocyte membrane, and the effect of chlorpromazine at prelytic and lytic concentrations on the fluidity have been studied by using three kinds of fatty acid spin labels and measuring the temperature dependence of Mg2+-ATPase activity. The Arrhenius plot of the apparent rotational correlation time, tau c, for probes I(12,3) and(More)
Mannan-binding lectin (MBL) was first discovered as a collectin in animal blood, and was shown to have such unique characteristics as a collage-like domain and a carbohydrate recognition domain. We recently identified human collectin kidney 1 (CL-K1, COLEC11) from a human kidney cDNA library. To quantitate the CL-K1 concentration in blood, we developed(More)
BACKGROUND Scavenger receptors are generally expressed in macrophages and vascular endothelial cells and some scavenger receptors are thought to contribute to the development of atherosclerosis. METHODS We cloned the cDNA of a zebrafish CL-P1 (collectin placenta 1) and performed a knockdown study using its antisense morpholino oligonucleotides (MO). (More)
We have designed and synthesised a new carborane derivative containing two nitronyl nitroxides. This molecule can be considered as a prototype of a three-dimensional analogue of o-benzoquinodimethane. The magnetic susceptibility of a crystalline sample revealed that this biradical possesses a weak antiferromagnetic interaction (theta = -1.05(4) K) and an(More)
6i†‡…hp‡ We developed a method, tools and services that support design for agile set up or agile renewal of manufacturing systems in order to reduce total lead-time. As a manufacturing system is considered as a set of objects, the system from MES (manufacturing execution systems) to programmable logic controllers are designed and built by distributed object(More)
