complexity of MHC bound peptides and the ability of subtle variation in peptide ligands to dramatically affect the outcome of T cell activation and differentiation (Alam et al.Summary tains one extracellular immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain, a membrane-proximal stalk region, a transmembrane The T cell receptor (TCR) consists of genetically di-helix, and a(More)
Fully stretched DNA molecules are becoming a fundamental component of new systems for comprehensive genome analysis. Among a number of approaches for elongating DNA molecules, nanofluidic molecular confinement has received enormous attentions from physical and biological communities for the last several years. Here we demonstrate a well-optimized condition(More)
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has proven beneficial in the treatment of central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). Two patients with serous pigment epithelial detachments (PEDs) and one patient with chronic CSC developed an abrupt visual loss caused by severe choroidal ischemia following PDT. Serous PEDs in the two patients were regarded as a latent variant of(More)
A 63-year-old female with candidemia following necrotizing pancreatitis developed clinical signs of chorioretinitis and underwent the systemic administration of voriconazole, after which anterior chamber inflammation and multiple, white, fluffy, chorioretinal lesions, under 1mm in diameter, were gradually resolved and visual acuity improved. We report the(More)
To overproduce Serratia marcescens metalloprotease(SMP), various recombinant plasmids encoding SMP gene were constructed and the SMP productivities from the recombinant S. marcescens strains were examined. The recombinant S. marcescens strains indispensably required proteinaceous substrates such as casein for the extracellular production of SMP. We obtained(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the feasibility and test-retest reliability of a novel electroencephalography (EEG)-based brain mapping system in healthy children and children with cerebral palsy (CP). DESIGN Correlation statistics. SETTING University brain mapping and neurorehabilitation laboratory. PARTICIPANTS A convenience sample of children (N=12; 5(More)
Here, we report Si pillar and well arrays as tailored electrode materials for advanced Li ion storage devices. The well-ordered and periodic morphologies were formed on a Si electrode thin film via laser interference lithography followed by a dry etch process. Two different patterns of negatively or positively carved Si electrodes exhibited highly improved(More)
Since the pioneering work of O’Regan and Grätzel in 1991[1] numerous studies have investigated dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) as an alternative next generation solar cell. This evolution has continued to progress, and solar light-to-electricity conversion efficiencies (power conversion efficiency, PCE) have now exceeded 11%, which was attained with a 12(More)
Transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) are becoming significant because of their interesting semiconducting and photonic properties. In particular, TMDs such as molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), molybdenum diselenide (MoSe2), tungsten disulfide (WS2), tungsten diselenide (WSe2), titanium disulfide (TiS2), tantalum sulfide (TaS2), and niobium selenide (NbSe2)(More)
Organic-based resistive memory has been considered to be a promising alternative to conventional semiconductor-based nonvolatile memories due to a variety of advantages such as low production cost, printability, simple fabrication and good scalability. [ 1–5 ] Organic-memory research to date has focused mainly on developing new organic materials or(More)
