—This paper presents a precise system for handwritten Chinese and Japanese character recognition. Before extracting directional element feature (DEF) from each character image, transformation based on partial inclination detection (TPID) is used to reduce undesired effects of degraded images. In the recognition process, city block distance with deviation(More)
CagA protein is a major virulence factor of Helicobacter pylori, which is delivered into gastric epithelial cells and elicits growth factor-like responses. Once within the cells, CagA is tyrosine phosphorylated by Src family kinases and targets host proteins required to induce the cell responses. We show that the phosphorylated CagA binds Crk adaptor(More)
Redoing has been introduced as a fundamental mechanism to handle the dynamics and flexibility required in the software process. It is an operation to cancel a part of a process enaction that is polluted by erroneous and incomplete activities and do that part again. In order to make redoing effective, it is essential to detect the cause of errors correctly.(More)

Cholera is a severe diarrheal disease typically caused by O1 serogroup strains of Vibrio cholerae. The pathogenicity of all pandemic V. cholerae O1 strains relies on two critical virulence factors: cholera toxin, a potent enterotoxin, and toxin coregulated pilus (TCP), an intestinal colonization factor. However, certain non-O1, non-O139 V. cholerae strains,(More)
Persistent colonization of the gastric mucosa by Helicobacter pylori (Hp) elicits chronic inflammation and aberrant epithelial cell proliferation, which increases the risk of gastric cancer. Here we examine the ability of microRNAs to modulate gastric cell proliferation in response to persistent Hp infection and find that epigenetic silencing of miR-210(More)

Vibrio cholerae, a Gram-negative facultative pathogen, is the etiologic agent for the diarrheal disease cholera. We previously characterized a clinical isolate, AM-19226, that translocates a type III secretion system (T3SS) effector protein with actin-nucleating activity, VopF, into the host cells. From comparative genomic studies, we identified a divergent(More)
Programs constructed using techniques that allow software or operational faults to be tolerated are typically written using an imperative computational model. Here, an alternative is described in which such programs are written using an attribute and functional based model called FTAG. The basic model is introduced first, followed by a description of(More)
We present a replication technique based on FTAG computation model where instances of a replicated application are active on different group of processors called replicas. FTAG (Fault Tolerant Attribute Grammar) is a functional and attribute based model [15]. The developed replication technique implements " active parallel replication " , –that is, all(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged worldwide as an important nosocomial pathogen in medical institutions. Here, we present the draft genome sequences of A. baumannii strains MRY09-0642, MRY10-0558, and MRY12-0277 that were isolated from nosocomial outbreaks in Japan between 2008 and 2012 and that are resistant to antimicrobial agents, including(More)
