Metabotropic glutamate receptor (mGluR) subtypes (mGluR1 to mGluR8) act as important pre- and postsynaptic regulators of neurotransmission in the CNS. These receptors consist of two domains, an extracellular region containing the orthosteric agonist site and a transmembrane heptahelical domain involved in G protein activation and recognition of several(More)
In patients who had undergone the first surgery for cleft lip and in whom the volume of tissue was smaller for the upper lip than for the lower lip, transfer of tissue from the lower lip using a full-length mucous flap allowed the tissue volume of the upper lip to be increased and external appearance of the lips to be improved. The subjects of this study(More)
Ab initio molecular dynamics (AIMD) simulations were carried out for ππ*-excited 1,1'-dimethylstilbene (dmSB) at the spin-flip time-dependent density functional theory (SF-TDDFT) level with the TSF-index technique, to get insights into the substitution effects on the photoisomerization dynamics of stilbene (SB). It is found that the reaction path from the(More)
