We report that a proper employment of MWEs concerned enables us to put forth a tractable framework, which is based on a multiple nesting of semantic operations, for the processing of non-inferential, Non-propositional Contents (NPCs) of natural Japanese sentences. Our framework is characterized by its broad syntactic and semantic coverage, enabling us to(More)
The protein p130 was isolated from rat brain as an inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate-binding protein with a domain organization similar to that of phospholipase C-delta1 but lacking PLC activity. We show that p130 plays an important role in signaling by the type A receptor for gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). Yeast twohybrid screening identified GABARAP (GABA(A)(More)
It is important for future NLP systems to formulate the semantic equivalence (and more generally, the semantic similarity) of natural language expressions. In particular, paraphrasing, full text information retrieval, example-based MT and document compression technology require the effective equivalence criterion for linguistic expressions. In this paper,(More)
BACKGROUND Pulmonary cachexia is common in advanced chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), culminating in exercise intolerance and a poor prognosis. Ghrelin is a novel growth hormone (GH)-releasing peptide with GH-independent effects. The efficacy and safety of adding ghrelin to pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) in cachectic COPD patients were(More)
abstract Word processors or computers used in Japan employ Japanese input method through keyboard stroke combined with Kana (phonetic) character to Kanji (ideographic, Chinese) character conversion technology. The key factor of Kana-to-Kanji conversion technology is how to raise the accuracy of the conversion through the homophone processing, since we have(More)

The first method uses the near co-occurrence data sets, which are constructed from the above (:o-occurrence relation, to select the most fe~Lsible word among(More)

Plant leaf epidermal cells exhibit a jigsaw puzzle-like pattern that is generated by interdigitation of the cell wall during leaf development. The contribution of two ROP GTPases, ROP2 and ROP6, to the cytoskeletal dynamics that regulate epidermal cell wall interdigitation has already been examined; however, how interactions between these molecules result(More)
