Virtual machine monitors (VMMs), including hypervisors, are a popular platform for implementing various security functionalities. However, traditional VMMs require numerous components for providing virtual hardware devices and for sharing and protecting system resources among virtual machines (VMs), enlarging the code size of and reducing the reliability of(More)
We have previously developed the succinylated poly(glycidol)-modified liposome which becomes fusigenic under weakly acidic condition. In this report, we describe that complexation of this pH-sensitive, fusigenic liposome with a lipoplex consisting of 3beta-(N-(N',N'-dimethylaminoethane) carbamoyl)cholesterol, dioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine and plasmid DNA(More)
Graphics processing units (GPUs) provide orders-of-magnitude speedup for compute-intensive data-parallel applications. However, enterprise and cloud computing domains, where resource isolation of multiple clients is required, have poor access to GPU technology. This is due to lack of operating system (OS) support for vir-tualizing GPUs in a reliable manner.(More)
Polyamidoamine dendrimers having poly(ethylene glycol) grafts were designed as a novel drug carrier which possesses an interior for the encapsulation of drugs and a biocompatible surface. Poly(ethylene glycol) monomethyl ether with the average molecular weight of 550 or 2000 was combined to essentially every chain end of the dendrimer of the third or fourth(More)
Previously, as a new type of pH-sensitive liposome, we prepared egg yolk phosphatidylcholine (EYPC) liposomes bearing succinylated poly(glycidol), that is a poly(ethylene glycol) derivative having carboxyl groups, and showed that fusion ability of the liposomes increases under weakly acidic and acidic conditions (Kono, K., Zenitani, K. and Takagishi, T.(More)
Executable content poses a threat of unauthorized access because it contains program code running on the user's machine. Protecting against executable content is difficult because of the inevitable flaws in the implementation of protection mechanisms. This paper introduces a hierarchical protection model to tolerate flaws in protection mechanisms. This(More)
A sequential polypeptide, poly(Glu-Aib-Leu-Aib) (Aib represents 2-aminoisobutyric acid), was synthesized and the pH-dependence of fusogenic activity of the polypeptide was studied. The polypeptide was designed to take amphiphilic structure upon the formation of alpha-helix. Circular dichroism spectra of the polypeptide showed a negative Cotton effect with(More)
Recently, we showed that incorporation of poly[2-(2-ethoxy)ethoxyethyl vinyl ether (EOEOVE)], which exhibits a lower critical solution temperature around 40 degrees C, provides temperature-sensitive properties to stable liposomes. In this study, we applied this thermosensitive polymer for preparation of temperature-sensitive liposomes for tumor-specific(More)
Three kinds of succinylated poly(glycidol)s were synthesized as poly(ethylene glycol) derivatives having carboxyl groups by the reaction of poly(glycidol) with varying amounts of succinic anhydride in dimethylformamide. These polymers promoted fusion of egg-yolk phosphatidylcholine liposome more intensively with decreasing content of carboxyl groups at pH(More)
