Effects of a short-chain phospholipid, dihexanoylphosphatidylcholine (DHPC), on the structure and morphology of membrane assemblies of a long-chain phospholipid, dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine (DMPC), were examined by fluorescence spectroscopy, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and cryogenic transmission electron microscopy (cryo-TEM). It was found(More)
The miscibility and interaction of 1-hexanol (C6OH) and 1-heptanol (C7OH) with 1,2-dihexanoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (DHPC) in the adsorbed films and micelles were investigated by measuring the surface tension of aqueous C6OH-DHPC and aqueous C7OH-DHPC solutions. The surface density, the mean molecular area, the composition of the adsorbed film, and(More)
This paper discusses the development of a robot head that creates a facial expression according to emotion resulting from a flow of consciousness. The authors focused attention on the human consciousness and proposed a system using a unique artificial consciousness according to the relationship between emotion and the resulting human facial expressions. The(More)
In an effort to find a new oral cephalosporin with well-balanced antibacterial spectrum, good oral absorbability and long plasma half-life, a series of oxyimino aminothiazolyl 3-[(E)- or (Z)-N-substituted carbamoyloxy]propenyl cephems was synthesized and evaluated for antibacterial activity and oral absorbability. The substituents of the carbamoyloxy group(More)
The surface tension and pH of aqueous solutions of three hydrochloric acid (HCl) - uncharged anesthetic (mepivacaine (MC), bupibacaine (BC) and dibucaine (DC)) mixtures were measured as a function of total molality and composition of local anesthetic in order to investigate the competitive surface-adsorption of uncharged and charged local anesthetics. The(More)
The synthesis and antibacterial activities of 7 beta-[2-(2-aminothiazol-4-yl)-2-hydroxyiminoacetamido]-3-N,N - dimethylcarbamoyloxymethyl-3-cephem-4-carboxylic acid (E1100) and its analogs are described, as well as oral absorbability and in vivo activities of the 1-(isopropoxycarbonyloxy)ethyl ester (E1101) and its analogous esters. The introduction of(More)
