The rice species Oryza sativa is considered to be a model plant because of its small genome size, extensive genetic map, relative ease of transformation and synteny with other cereal crops. Here we report the essentially complete sequence of chromosome 1, the longest chromosome in the rice genome. We summarize characteristics of the chromosome structure and(More)
The purpose of the study was to assess the signal intensities of arachnoid granulations within the dural sinuses using the FLAIR sequence for differentiation of space-occupying lesions in and adjacent to the dural sinuses. We retrospectively reviewed MR images of the brain of 1118 consecutive subjects, ranging in age from 0 to 93 years (mean 57.2 years).(More)
We defend the idea that a floating quantifier observes syntactic locality with its associated noun phrase. This idea has given rise to a number of important empirical insights, including the VP-internal subject position , intermediate traces, and NP-traces. Recently, this syntactic locality of floating quantifiers has been questioned in a number of(More)
An autopsy case of small cell glioblastoma, showing multiple extracranial metastases, is reported with special reference to histopathological differentiation from metastatic small cell carcinoma. Widely spread lesions in the bilateral lungs were developed after an operation and chemo-radiotherapy for glioblastoma, and the lung lesions led to fatal(More)
Single-cell mRNA sequencing offers an unbiased approach to dissecting cell types as functional units in multicellular tissues. However, highly reliable cell typing based on single-cell gene expression analysis remains challenging because of the lack of methods for efficient sample preparation for high-throughput sequencing and evaluating the statistical(More)
We have had experience in treating tardive Tourette-like syndrome on a chronic schizophrenic patient. The patient was a 38-year-old woman. A diagnosis of schizophrenia was made in 1971 and she received repeated medications for 17 years. In 1989, she began to show vocal tic with coprolalia and motor tic. The medications were haloperidol 18 mg, zotepine 200(More)
