Microorganisms are generally used for mass production of foreign gene products, but multicellular organisms such as plants have been proposed as an economical alternative. The silkworm may be useful in this context as it can be cultured easily and at low cost. We have therefore developed a virus vector to introduce foreign genes, for example, the gene for(More)
The use of solution processes-as opposed to conventional vacuum processes and vapour-phase deposition-for the fabrication of electronic devices has received considerable attention for a wide range of applications, with a view to reducing processing costs. In particular, the ability to print semiconductor devices using liquid-phase materials could prove(More)
Five hybridoma T cell lines were prepared by fusion of Ts3 cells with the BW 5147 thymoma. The culture supernatants from these T cell hybrids contained a factor, TsF3, which specifically suppressed 4-hydroxy-3-nitrophenyl acetyl hapten (NP(-hapten cutaneous sensitivity responses. The properties of this new series of hybridoma factors was compared with those(More)
Calcitonin gene-related peptides (CGRP) and adrenomedullin (ADM) belong to the calcitonin family of peptides and are structurally related. Both peptides are found in the neurons of the CNS and play a role in many neuronal functions, including the control of blood pressure. The nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) is known to play a major role in the regulation(More)
When human erythrocytes suspended in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing lgG were first dialyzed against a hypotonic solution and then dialyzed against PBS, lgG molecules were entrapped within resealed erythrocyte ghosts. The concentration of lgG inside the ghosts was about 33% of its concentration in the dialysis bag. With the aid of HVJ (Sendai(More)
This study evaluated the microtensile bond strength (μTBS) of 1-step self-etch adhesives (1-SEAs) and 2-step self-etch adhesives (2-SEAs) to pulp chamber dentin immediately after bleaching with 2 types of common bleaching techniques. Pulp chamber dentin of bovine teeth was bleached using 30% hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) solution with quartz-tungsten-halogen(More)
Research report Calcitonin gene-related peptide-and adrenomedullin-induced facilitation of calcium current by different signal pathways in nucleus tractus solitarius 30 pages 6 figures and figure legends (in Black/White) 2 ABSTRACT Calcitonin gene-related peptides (CGRP) and adrenomedullin (ADM) belong to the calcitonin family of peptides and are(More)
