A survey of proliferative enteritis (PE) in pigs at a meat processing plant was conducted using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing methods. During the investigation period, 227 of 83,717 pigs brought to the meat processing plant from Iwate, Fukushima, Miyagi, Niigata, and Yamagata Prefectures displayed characteristic general pathological features in(More)
(UV) light-induced skin damage. On the other hand, overexposure to UV radiation can lead to a pathological increase in melanin production. Epidermal hyper-pigmentation results from the increased activity of melanogenic enzymes such as tyrosinase. Tyrosinase oxidizes the conversion of L-tyrosine to 3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (DOPA) and DOPA to DOPA quinone,(More)
We previously reported that a novel hydrophilic gamma-tocopherol (gamma-Toc) derivative, gamma-tocopheryl-N,N-dimethylglycinate hydrochloride (gamma-TDMG) gets converted to the antioxidant gamma-Toc in skin. We also found that this derivative displayed greater bioavailability than gamma-Toc itself. In the present study, we determined whether gamma-TDMG(More)
Owing to huge amount of kinematic energy, ocean current has the potential to be a base power source. However, ocean current power plant has to be submerged in the sea, making it difficult to maintain; therefore it must have high durability and reliability for long-term operation towards utilization. Equipment design approach considers various loads which(More)
