The prostanoid EP(2) receptor agonist ONO-AE1-259-01 protects against glutamate-induced neurotoxicity in rat retina.
Prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) plays an important role in promoting inflammation and neurological disorders. The actions of PGE(2) are mediated by four different G-protein-coupled receptors (EP(1),Expand

Epi-trichosetin, a new undecaprenyl pyrophosphate synthase inhibitor, produced by Fusarium oxysporum FKI-4553
A new compound, designated epi-trichosetin (1), was isolated along with the known compound trichosetin (2) from the culture broth of Fusarium oxysporum FKI-4553 by solvent extraction, silica gelExpand

Fiber-optic sensor-based remote acoustic emission measurement of composites
Acoustic emission (AE) detection functioning at high temperatures could clarify the damage process in high heat-resistant composites. To achieve the high-temperature AE detection, a remote AEExpand

A novel method of identifying damage types in carbon fiber-reinforced plastic cross-ply laminates based on acoustic emission detection using a fiber-optic sensor
Abstract We applied a highly sensitive phase-shifted fiber-optic Bragg grating (PS-FBG) sensor with a broad bandwidth to acoustic emission (AE) detection in a composite material. Based on AEExpand

Distribution of histamine-producing lactic acid bacteria in canned salted anchovies and their histamine production behavior
Histamine-producing bacteria were isolated from various types of canned salted anchovies with cooking oil, which were purchased from retail groceries over a study period of eight years. Thirty-twoExpand

Novel cell surface genes expressed in the stomach primordium during gastrointestinal morphogenesis of mouse embryos.
The mechanisms of gastrointestinal morphogenesis in mammals are not well understood. This is partly due to the lack of appropriate markers that are expressed with spatiotemporal specificity in theExpand

DAMAGE-TYPE IDENTIFICATION IN A CFRP CROSS-PLY LAMINATE FROM ACOUSTIC EMISSION SIGNALS DETECTED BY A FIBER-OPTIC SENSOR IN A NEW REMOTE CONFIGURATION
Recently, the authors have developed a highly sensitive fiber-optic ultrasonic sensing system using a phase-shifted fiber Bragg grating (PSFBG). The sophisticated PSFBG sensing system enabled us toExpand
Ignition limit of electric wire insulation with continuous excess current in several microgravity periods
Overloading of an electric wire is a potential cause of fire in space craft. So it is important to know the ignition limit in long term μG environment such as in space craft on orbit. In thisExpand
