Ralstonia eutropha H16 is well known to produce polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs), which are potential bio-based biodegradable plastics, in an efficient manner as an energy storage material under unbalanced growth conditions. To obtain further knowledge of PHA biosynthesis, this study performed a quantitative transcriptome analysis based on deep sequencing of(More)
We present the results of first dual-beam observations with VERA (VLBI Exploration of Radio Astrometry). The first dual-beam observations of a pair of H2O maser sources W49N and OH43.8-0.1 have been carried out on 2002 May 29 and July 23, and fringes of H2O maser lines at 22 GHz have been successfully detected. While the residual fringe phases of both(More)
To evaluate the effect of low-molecular-weight glutenin subunit (LMW-GS) genes on dough strength, locus-specific primers of LMW-GS genes and gliadin bands tightly linked to LMW-GS genes were analyzed in common wheat. Segregation analysis of the F2 progeny from a cross between ‘Haruhikari’, a good bread-making quality cultivar, and ‘Asakaze-komugi’, a poor(More)
In magnesia cement, phase 3, a broad and strong infrared band was observed with the maximum at approximately 1300 and 1050 cm(-1) in the H and D systems, respectively. To clarify the origin of the 1300 cm(-1) band the temperature dependency of the infrared spectra of the H system was observed and the spectra analyzed on the basis of a strong vibrational(More)
Ralstonia eutropha is a facultative chemolithoautotrophic bacterium that uses the Calvin-Benson-Bassham (CBB) cycle for CO2 fixation. This study showed that R. eutropha strain H16G incorporated (13)CO2, emitted by the oxidative decarboxylation of [1-(13)C1]-glucose, into key metabolites of the CBB cycle and finally into poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) [P(3HB)] with(More)
We report on the multi-epoch observations of H2O maser emission in star forming region OH 43.8−0.1 carried out with VLBI Exploration of Radio Astrometry (VERA). The large-scale maser distributions obtained by single-beam VLBI mapping reveal new maser spots scattered in area of 0.7 x 1.0 arcsec, in addition to a ‘shell-like’ structure with a scale of 0.3 x(More)
We report on a strong outburst of the W 49N H2O maser observed with VERA. Single-dish monitoring with VERA 20 m telescopes detected a strong outburst of the maser feature at VLSR = −30.7 km s −1 in 2003 October. The outburst had a duration of ∼ 100 days and a peak intensity of 7.9×10 Jy, being one of the strongest outbursts in W 49N observed so far. VLBI(More)
