The cyanobacterium Synechococcus leopoliensis CCAP1405/1 does not grow on common solid media made of agar, agarose HT, noble agar, gelrite and gelatin, although it grows in liquid media with the same components. The inoculation of S. leopoliensis CCAP1405/1 at a high initial cell density allowed it to grow on the agar media, and co-inoculation with one of(More)
Synechococcus leopoliensis CCAP1405/1 cannot grow on common solid media; however, the strain can grow when co-cultured with Bacillus subtilis 168. Gene-disruptant strains of B. subtilis 168 by pMUTINs at the following sites lost the ability to support the growth of S. leopoliensis CCAP1405/1 on agar media: yxeO and yufO (transporter), yxdK (histidine(More)
In some microorganisms, polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are biosynthesized by PUFA synthases characterized by tandem acyl carrier proteins (ACPs) in subunit A. These ACPs were previously shown to be important for PUFA productivity. In this study, we examined their function in more detail. PUFA productivities increased depending on the number of ACPs(More)
Herbicides 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D)- and 2,4,5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T)-degrading Bradyrhizobium strains possess tfdAα and/or cadABC as degrading genes. It has been reported that root-nodulating bacteria belonging to Bradyrhizobium elkanii also have tfdAα and cadA like genes but lack the ability to degrade these herbicides and(More)
There are two serious requirements to machining systems used in manufacturing industries. They are machining quality and efficiency. In this paper, a vibrational motion control is proposed for an endmill attached to the tip of a machining robot to suppress the occurrence of undesirable cusp marks. In addition, the calculation of radius of curvature along(More)
Due to the high importance of biofilms on river ecosystems, assessment of pesticides' adverse effects is necessary but is impaired by high variability and poor reproducibility of both natural biofilms and those developed in the laboratory. We constructed a model biofilm to evaluate the effects of pesticides, consisting in cultured microbial strains,(More)
Transactional memory (TM) is promising to make parallel programming easier. Many hardware implementations of transactional memory (HTM) have been proposed to improve the performance, but they still suffer from some overheads when a transaction either commits or aborts. So we have been developing a novel new HTM design, called Delayed-Committing TM (DCTM),(More)
