Toll-like receptors (TLRs) recognize various microbial components and play key roles in activating the innate immune system. Hence, their function is important in swine infectious diseases. We completely determined 173,804 bp of nucleotide sequence of a genomic region including porcine TLR6 and the newly identified porcine TLR homologues TLR1 and TLR10. The(More)
We generated the PEDE (Pig EST Data Explorer; http://pede.dna.affrc.go.jp/) database using sequences assembled from porcine 5' ESTs from oligo-capped full-length cDNA libraries. Thus far we have performed EST analysis of various organs (thymus, spleen, uterus, lung, liver, ovary and peripheral blood mononuclear cells) and assembled 68,076 high-quality(More)
CD1 is an MHC class I-like protein that presents lipid antigens to T cell receptors. We determined 470,187 bp of the genomic sequence encompassing the region encoding porcine CD1 genes. We identified 16 genes in this region and newly identified CD1A2, CD1B, CD1C, CD1D, and CD1E. Porcine CD1 genes were located in clusters between KIRREL and olfactory(More)
We constructed a 5000-rad comprehensive radiation hybrid (RH) map of the porcine (Sus scrofa) genome and compared the results with the human genome. Of 4475 typed markers, 4016 (89.7%) had LOD >5 compared with the markers used in our previous RH map by means of two-point analysis and were grouped onto the 19 porcine chromosomes (SSCs). All mapped markers(More)
We formerly released the porcine expressed sequence tag (EST) database Pig EST Data Explorer (PEDE; http://pede.dna.affrc.go.jp/), which comprised 68,076 high-quality ESTs obtained by using full-length-enriched cDNA libraries derived from seven tissues. We have added eight tissues and cell types to the EST analysis and have integrated 94,555 additional(More)
Following several criteria, we collected, clustered, and functionally categorized 653 expressed sequence tags (ESTs) of 5′ ends from porcine back fat libraries from the >15,000 porcine ESTs collected to date. By searching the LocusLink and Mapviewer database, we knew the positions of these 653 ESTs on human chromosomes (HSAs). Sus scrofa radiation hybrid(More)
DUR3 proteins mediate high-affinity transport of exogenous and endogenous urea. Although two DUR3-like genes (PyDUR3.1/3.2) have been identified in Pyropia yezoensis, a BLAST search using these sequences against the P. yezoensis EST database suggested the existence of another DUR3-like gene (PyDUR3.3). In this study, the PyDUR3.3 gene was isolated and(More)
This paper suggests a method of robust control for an active suspension to improve both of the ride comfort and the driving stability using half car model. The ride comfort is evaluated by the vertical acceleration and the pitch acceleration of the human body. The driving stability is evaluated by the vertical force of front and rear wheels. The purpose of(More)
