Bacillus brevis ATCC 9999, which produces gramicidin S, was found to be unable to ferment various carbohydrates such as glucose, galactose, mannose, lactose, maltose, sucrose, and mannitol. This defect in carbohydrate utilization was attributed to the lack of the transport system(s) for various carbohydrates. This organism can take up only fructose and(More)
In this paper, we propose a floor sensing method using stereo cameras mounted on a biped robot. In the proposed method, we first determine multiple regions of interest (ROI) in a reference image from footstep positions up to several steps, scheduled by a current footstep plan. Then the 3D plane parameters of the floor with respect to each ROI are estimated(More)
A state-of-the-arts biped robot can take foot-steps such that its heels always overhang corner edges while ascending stairs, as humans naturally do. The overhanging footstep is advantageous in terms of relaxation of restrictions on gait planning. However, in a man-made environment without geometry information, the overhanging footstep requires the(More)
An alloantibody to von Willebrand factor (vWF) which developed in a Japanese boy with type 3 von Willebrand disease has been characterized. The antibody was non-precipitating IgG and the main subclasses were IgG2 and IgG4. The antibody inhibited completely ristocetin-induced platelet aggregation (RIPA) and high shear stress-induced platelet aggregation(More)
