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)
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)
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)
The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of dental checkups incorporating tooth-brushing instruction (TBI) with that of conventional dental checkups. A team consisting of one dentist and three dental hygienists saw an average of 60 employees per day on-site at an airline company. The patient's teeth were stained with a disclosing tablet(More)
This study aimed to investigate retrospectively the outcome of surgical periodontal therapy. Periodontal surgeries implemented at General Dentistry, Tokyo Dental College Suidobashi Hospital during the period of April 2010 through March 2012 were subjected to data analysis. After initial periodontal therapy, 17 clinicians performed a total of 138 periodontal(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)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of superhydrophilic treatments of titanium on the behavior of osteoblastlike cells. Superhydrophilic specimens were prepared with sandblast and acid-etching (DW), oxygen plasma (Plasma) and ultraviolet light (UV), and were stored in distilled water for 3 days immediately after these treatments.(More)
