Identity federation is a powerful scheme that links accounts of users maintained distinctly by different business partners. The concept of network identity is a driver for accelerating automation of Web Services on the Internet for users on their behalf while protecting privacy of their personally identifiable information. Although users of Web Services(More)
Based on studies using laboratory strains, the efficiency of gene disruption in Aspergillus oryzae, commonly known as koji mold, is low; thus, gene disruption has rarely been applied to the breeding of koji mold. To evaluate the efficiency of gene disruption in industrial strains of A. oryzae, we produced ferrichrysin biosynthesis gene (dffA) disruptants(More)
The molecular dynamics simulation is reported. The latest data on photosystem II structure, a thylakoid membrane model with the same lipid class distribution and fatty acid composition as the native thylakoid membrane, are used. The results indicate that the transfer of water, oxygen and protons has different pathways. The root mean square (rms)-fluctuation(More)
We describe attempts to have robots behave as embodied knowledge media that will permit knowledge to be communicated through embodied interactions in the real world. The key issue here is to give robots the ability to associate interactions with information content while interacting with a communication partner. Toward this end, we present two contributions(More)
HPLC analysis and yield of oleanene-glucuronide (OG) was done on some commercially available edible beans: seeds of Glycine max, Glycine max cv. Kuromame, Phaseolus vulgaris cv. Torosuku, Phaseolus vulgaris cv. Toramame, Phaseolus vulgaris cv. Taishokintoki, Phaseolus coccineus cv. Ooshirobana, Phaseolus coccineus cv. Murasakihanamame, Vigna unguiculata cv.(More)
A new mechanism of the oxygen evolving reaction catalyzed by [H(2)O(terpy)Mn(μ-O)(2)Mn(terpy)OH(2)](3+) is proposed by using density functional theory. This proton coupled electron transfer (PCET) model shows reasonable barriers. Because in experiments excess oxidants (OCl(-) or HSO(5)(-)) are required to evolve oxygen from water, we considered the Mn(2)(More)
To elucidate the mechanism of the exceptional behavior of lysine for the ionization (protonation) yields in matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization (MALDI) observed by Nishikaze and Takayama [Rapid Commun. Mass Spectrom. 2006, 20, 376], the temperature dependences of proton affinity (PA) and gas phase basicity for 20 amino acids are theoretically(More)
The Mn4CaO5 cluster in Photosystem II catalyzes the four-electron redox reaction of water oxidation in natural photosynthesis. This catalytic reaction cycles through four intermediate states (Si, i = 0 to 4), involving changes in the redox state of the four Mn atoms in the cluster. Recent studies suggest the presence and importance of isomorphous structures(More)
A key issue in social intelligence design is the realization of artifacts that can fluently communicate with people. Thus, we proposed a two-layered approach to enhance a robot’s capacity of involvement and engagement. The upper layer flexibly controls social interaction by dynamic Bayesian networks (DBN) representing social interaction patterns. The lower(More)
We present the application of 3D reconstruction technology to the inspection and decommissioning work at the damaged Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power station in Japan. We discuss the challenges of this project, such as the difficult image capture conditions (including under water), required use of limited imaging hardware, and capture by personnel(More)
