HemK, a universally conserved protein of unknown function, has high amino acid similarity with DNA-(adenine-N6) methyl transferases (MTases). A certain mutation in hemK gene rescues the photosensitive phenotype of a ferrochelatase-deficient (hemH) mutant in Escherichia coli. A hemK knockout strain of E. coli not only suffered severe growth defects, but also(More)
Growing porcine oocytes from early antral follicles can acquire meiotic and developmental competence under suitable culture conditions, but at lower rates compared to full-grown oocytes. We postulated that estradiol-17β (E2 ) supported the acquisition of meiotic and developmental competence as well as cumulus-expansion ability during growth culture. Growing(More)
The repetition of a two-step route consisting of chemisorption of 1,3,5,7-tetramethylcyclotetrasiloxane (TMCTS) and its subsequent photooxidation has formed SiOx monolayers on the surfaces of TiO2 particles layer by layer (SiOx(n < or = 4)/TiO2, n = repeated number). The trace of these processes using diffuse reflectance FT-IR and solid-state 29Si NMR(More)
In this paper, we will describe the TSI (Teething ring Sound Instrument), a new sound instrument given to babies, which consists of a teething ring, a knob, an I-CubeX Digitizer [1] and a computer which processes MIDI messages. The TSI is designed to bring music experience to baby with the movement of the babies reflex sucking motion. We provided the TSI to(More)
