Congenital lipoid adrenal hyperplasia (lipoid CAH) is the most severe form of CAH in which the synthesis of all gonadal and adrenal cortical steroids is markedly impaired. Lipoid CAH may be caused by the defect in either the steroidogenic acute regulatory (StAR) protein or the P450scc. More than 34 different mutations in StAR gene have been identified.… (More)
We acknowledge the cooperation and generosity of the THEMIS Science Support Team in allowing us to use TDAS for our data analysis software (UDAS).
(Received) ABSTRACT Effects of Coulomb interactions and lattice fluctuations in the optical absorption spectra of C 60 and C 70 are theoretically investigated by using a tight binding model with long-range Coulomb interaction and bond disorder. Anisotropy effects in C 70 are also considered. Optical spectra are calculated by using the Hartree-Fock… (More)
In this paper, we introduce data and information activities of the International Center for Space Weather Science and Education (ICSWSE), Kyushu University, Japan. The principal data source is the MAGDAS (MAGnetic Data Acquisition System) project which is a global network of geomagnetic observations operated by collaborations between ICSWSE and institutions… (More)
To improve the safety of the use of a power injector for pediatric contrast CT, we newly developed a saline test injection mode for a power injector and investigated its usefulness. We used an injection route and investigated the relationship of the injection pressure to the injection rate of saline and the contrast medium. From this relationship, we… (More)
We propose a model molecular wire sensor that can detect zerovalent chromium by a strong increase in conductance when included in a metal-molecule-metal junction. An essential part of the sensor is a paracyclophane unit that binds to the metal atom. The nature and the energies of the molecular orbitals change drastically after the complex is formed,… (More)
