OBJECTIVE To evaluate the presence of ryudocan in follicular fluid (FF) and its possible correlation with FF E(2) and P, and to study the levels of ryudocan in granulosa-lutein cells stimulated with hCG. DESIGN Controlled clinical study and in vitro experiment. SETTING University teaching hospital. PATIENT(S) One hundred seven patients undergoing IVF.(More)
Cytoplasmic streaming (CPS) is well known to assist the movement of nutrients, organelles and genetic material by transporting all of the cytoplasmic contents of a cell. CPS is generated by motility organelles that are driven by motor proteins near a membrane surface, where the CPS has been found to have a flat velocity profile in the flow field according(More)
We have experimentally observed the forms of splash caused by spheres diving into water, where the spheres are made of hydro-gel or acrylic resin[1]. The experimental results have shown that the splash by the hydro-gel sphere has formed the crown-type one, whereas the acrylic sphere formed the column-type one despite the same experimental condition.

By means of real time B-scan, human fetal breathing movements (FBM) was basically and clinically investigated on 244 observations in 215 pregnancies. The results obtained were as follows. (1) FBM was frequently observed during active sleep in which FHR variability and fetal movement increased. (2) The incidence of FBM increased rapidly from 12.5% at 23-27(More)
The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of particles as filler in soft rubber sensors installed in artificial skin. We examine sensors made of natural rubber (NR-latex) that include magnetic particles of Ni and Fe₃O₄ using magnetic compound fluid (MCF). The 1-mm thickness of the electrolytically polymerized MCF rubber makes production of(More)
