strain B2 is an effective biocontrol agent against gray mold of cyclamen, caused by Botrytis cinerea Persoon. Strain B2 has strong antifungal activity against B. cinerea in vitro. The culture filtrate was found to contain different types of chitinolytic enzyme activity, including endochitinase and chitobiase activity. Four chitinolytic enzymes were detected(More)
An antagonistic bacterium, Serratia marcescens strain B2, controlled rice blast after being sprayed onto rice phylloplane, as did the bacterial suspension when poured into rhizosphere soil of rice plants. Three days after root treatment, rice blast conidia were sprayed onto rice foliage. A week after pathogen inoculation, rice blast was suppressed and(More)
Botrytis cinerea is responsible for gray mold disease in more than 200 host plant species. The infection of host plants is mediated by numerous extracellular enzymes, proteins and metabolites. Each of these compounds may play a role in different stages of the infection process. Cell wall-degrading enzymes may facilitate the penetration into the host(More)
To analyze the histopathology of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) and choroidal neovascularization (CNV) developing from PCV, the authors evaluated correlations between pathological findings and the findings of preoperative indocyanine green angiography (IA). Two specimens were obtained during CNV excision associated with PCV. PCV tissue was excised(More)
Twenty-eight strains of Pseudomonas syringae pv. actinidiae isolated in 1984, 1987 and 1988 from kiwifruit orchards in Japan were tested for their resistance to copper sulfate. All strains isolated in 1984 were copper sensitive with a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of cupric sulfate of 0.75 mM. However, some strains isolated in 1987 and 1988 were(More)
This 600MHz single-chip multiprocessor consists of two M32R 32b CPU cores[1] and 512kB shared SRAM, and is designed for embedded microcontroller and system on chip (SoC) core. Since software for an embedded systems increases its complexity, embedded processors [2]-[4] are required to increase performance. At the same time, low power dissipation is still a(More)
In the sexual reproductive cycle of Botrytis cinerea, large numbers of microconidia were observed in all the crosses that formed sexual bodies. To clarify the role of the microconidia in sexual reproduction, they were separated using a sucrose density gradient and then used in crossing tests with fungal sclerotia. Sexual bodies were formed in all the(More)
A heterogeneous multicore SoC (System on a Chip) has been developed for HD (high-definition) multimedia applications that require secure DRM (digital rights management). The SoC integrates three types of processors: two specific-purpose accelerators for a cipher and a high-resolution video decoding; one general-purpose accelerator (MX: Matrix processor);(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate fundus lesions in patients with malignant hypertension with indocyanine green angiography (ICGA). METHODS Cases of hypertensive choroidopathy were followed prospectively with ICGA, fluorescein angiography (FA), and optical coherence tomography (OCT). RESULTS In Case 1, a 34-year-old man had a 10-day history of blurred vision in both(More)
