Sequence Analysis of the Genome of an Oil-Bearing Tree, Jatropha curcas L.
The whole genome of Jatropha curcas was sequenced, using a combination of the conventional Sanger method and new-generation multiplex sequencing methods. Total length of the non-redundant sequencesExpand

Analysis and experimental assessment of the sensitivity of stimulated Raman scattering microscopy.
We theoretically show that the shot-noise-limited sensitivity of stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy, which enables high-contrast vibrational imaging, is similar to that of coherentExpand

Structure and Functional Characterization of Vibrio parahaemolyticus Thermostable Direct Hemolysin*
Thermostable direct hemolysin (TDH) is a major virulence factor of Vibrio parahaemolyticus that causes pandemic foodborne enterocolitis mediated by seafood. TDH exists as a tetramer in solution, andExpand

Paenibacillus glycanilyticus sp. nov., a novel species that degrades heteropolysaccharide produced by the cyanobacterium Nostoc commune.
A novel bacterial strain, DS-1T, was isolated that degrades heteropolysaccharide produced by the cyanobacterium Nostoc commune. The isolate was identified by a combination of phenotypicExpand

Flower color modulations of Torenia hybrida by downregulation of chalcone synthase genes with RNA interference.
Suppression of biosynthetic genes involved in flower color formation is an important approach for obtaining target flower colors. Here we report that flower color of the garden plant Torenia hybridaExpand

A novel gene delivery system in plants with calcium alginate micro-beads.
We have produced micrometer-sized calcium alginate beads referred to as "bio-beads" that encapsulate plasmid DNA molecules carrying a reporter gene. In order to evaluate the efficiency of theExpand

Stimulated Raman scattering microscope with shot noise limited sensitivity using subharmonically synchronized laser pulses.
We propose and demonstrate the use of subharmonically synchronized laser pulses for low-noise lock-in detection in stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy. In the experiment, Yb-fiber laserExpand

High-resolution analysis of polyprenols by supercritical fluid chromatography.
A high-resolution analysis of polyprenol mixtures was achieved by supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC). The separation of polyprenols was examined on an octadecylsilane-packed column with liquidExpand

Single cell-based analysis of torenia petal pigments by a combination of ArF excimer laser micro sampling and nano-high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)-mass spectrometry.
The molecular constituents of the petal pigments of the Torenia plant (Torenia hybrida) were analyzed on a single-cell basis by a combination of newly developed laser-microsampling and nano-flowExpand
