On the basis of the similarity between spinel and rocksalt structures, it is shown that some spinel oxides (e.g., MgCo2O4, etc) can be cathode materials for Mg rechargeable batteries around 150 °C. The Mg insertion into spinel lattices occurs via "intercalation and push-out" process to form a rocksalt phase in the spinel mother phase. For example, by(More)
Ghrelin is a growth hormone-releasing peptide that also displays orexigenic activity. Since serine-3 acylation with octanoylate (octanoylation) is essential for the orexigenic activity of ghrelin, suppression of octanoylation could lead to amelioration or prevention of obesity. To enable the exploration of inhibitors of octanoylated ghrelin production, we(More)
Physical growth was studied longitudinally in laboratory-bred cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) aged from birth to 6.0 years in females and to 6.5 years in males. An allometric formula was applied to morphometrical growth data and the relative growth of each morphological site to anterior trunk length was analyzed. The growth patterns of all of the(More)
Adrenocortical zonation in the laboratory Japanese field vole (Microtus montebelli) was investigated histologically with special attention to the sex and species specific differences. The whole cortex and zona reticularis showed clear sex differences. They were thicker in females than in males. In this respect the vole was similar to the mouse and rat, but(More)
Physical growth was studied longitudinally in laboratory-bred cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) aged between zero and 6.0 years (females), and between zero and 6.5 years (males). A series of 17 variables representing physical elements were measured in 12 females and 10 males. Rates of increase in morphological total face length and morphological(More)
The influence of long term rearing conditions on the hematological and serum biochemical values in laboratory-bred female cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis) was studied under the following two conditions. Group A: New born infants were nursed by their mothers for at least 12 weeks after birth. After weaning, four monkeys of approximately equal age and(More)
We describe the relative growth in infant cynomolgus monkeys (Macaca fascicularis). The multivariate analyses using the principal component analysis and multivariate allometric analysis were applied to biometrical data of laboratory-bred cynomolgus monkeys aged from birth to 12 weeks. All the animals had been bred and reared under uniform environmental(More)
Morphometrical observations were carried out on the mandibles of chimeras made from the embryos of C57BL/6 and BALB/c mice to compare with the two strains and their reciprocal F1 crosses. The results of the principal component analysis indicate that the first principal component (PC1) and the second principal component (PC2) extracted might be acceptable as(More)
