Equilibrium maintenance during standing in humans was investigated with a 3-joint (ankle, knee and hip) sagittal model of body movement. The experimental paradigm consisted of sudden perturbations of humans in quiet stance by backward displacements of the support platform. Data analysis was performed using eigenvectors of motion equation. The results(More)
A new locus conditioning a pink trait in onions was identified. Unusual pink onions were found in haploid populations induced from an F1 hybrid between yellow and dark red parents and in F3 populations originating from the same cross. Segregation ratios of red to pink in F2, backcross, and F3 populations indicated that this pink trait is determined by a(More)
Large scale production of poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyhexanoate) [P(3HB-co-3HHx)] by Aeromonas hydrophila 4AK4 was examined in a 20,000 l fermentor. Cells were first grown using glucose as a carbon source, and polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) biosynthesis was triggered by the addition of lauric acid under conditions of limited nitrogen or phosphorus. When(More)
The molecular basis of the exocytosis of secretory insulin-containing granules (SGs) during biphasic glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) from pancreatic beta cells remains unclear. Syntaxin (SYN)-1A and SYN-4 have been shown to mediate insulin exocytosis. The insulin-secretory function of SYN-3, which is particularly abundant in SGs, is unclear.(More)
We identified new gene fusions in patients with lung cancer harboring the kinase domain of the NTRK1 gene that encodes the high-affinity nerve growth factor receptor (TRKA protein). Both the MPRIP-NTRK1 and CD74-NTRK1 fusions lead to constitutive TRKA kinase activity and are oncogenic. Treatment of cells expressing NTRK1 fusions with inhibitors of TRKA(More)
As software becomes more complicated and larger, software engineer’s requirements analysis become important and uneasy activity. This paper proposes a requirements analysis supporting system that supports informal requirements analysis. The proposed system measures the similarity between requirement sentences to identify possible redundancies and(More)
The yellow-pigmented bacterial strain causing green spot rot and death of laver was isolated from Porphyra dentata. This strain has been identified as Pseudomonas sp., harboring agarase, xylanase, and protease activity, as well as carboxymethyl-cellulase (CMCase). Using genomic DNA from the Pseudomonas sp. SK38 digested with Sau3AI and ligated into(More)
Aims/hypothesis. PPARγ, a member of the nuclear hormone receptor family of transcription factors, plays a key role in adipocyte differentiation and insulin sensitivity. The aim of this study was to identify a potential dominant negative murine PPARγ mutant and to characterize the in vitro functional properties of this mutant. Methods. In vitro transient(More)
