The two-parameter Poisson-Dirichlet distribution is a probability distribution on the totality of positive decreasing sequences with sum 1 and hence considered to govern masses of a random discrete distribution. A characterization of the associated point process (i.e., the random point process obtained by regarding the masses as points in the positive real(More)
To achieve the potent therapeutic effects of human immunoglobulin G (IgG), highly concentrated formulations are required. However, the stabilization for highly concentrated human IgG is laborious work. In the present study, to investigate the potentials of polypseudorotaxane (PPRX) hydrogels consisting of polyethylene glycol (PEG) and α- or γ-cyclodextrin(More)
We study partition distributions in a population genetics model incorporating symmetric selection and mutation. They generalize Ewens distributions in the infinitely-many-neutral-alleles model, an explicit expression of which is known as the Ewens sampling formula. A sampling formula for the generalized model is obtained by means of calculus for Poisson and(More)
J o u r n a l o f P r o b a b i l i t y Electron. Abstract We discuss a Markov jump process regarded as a variant of the CIR (Cox-Ingersoll-Ross) model and its infinite-dimensional extension. These models belong to a class of measure-valued branching processes with immigration, whose jump mechanisms are governed by certain stable laws. The main result gives(More)
Peptidylarginine deiminase (PAD; EC 3.5.3.15) is a post-translational modification enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of protein-bound arginine to citrulline (deimination) in a calcium ion dependent manner. Although PADI genes are widely conserved among vertebrates, their function in the chicken is poorly understood. Here, we cloned and sequenced three(More)
Long-term storage in aqueous solution has been demanded for the practical application of therapeutic proteins. Recently, a precipitation-redissolution method was proposed to prepare salt-dissociable protein-polyelectrolyte complex (PPC). To elucidate the utility of the complex for storage of proteins, we investigated the stress tolerance of PPC precipitates(More)
