This paper reports the rst discovery of TeV gamma-ray emission from a supernova remnant made with the CANGAROO 3.8 m Telescope. TeV { 2 { gamma rays were detected at the sky position and extension coincident with the northeast (NE) rim of shell-type Supernova remnant (SNR) SN1006 (Type Ia). SN1006 has been a most likely candidate for an extended TeV(More)
The JHF-Kamioka neutrino project is a second generation long base line neutrino oscillation experiment that probes physics beyond the Standard Model by high precision measurements of the neutrino masses and mixing. A high intensity narrow band neutrino beam is produced by secondary pions created by a high intensity proton synchrotron at JHF (JAERI). The(More)
Recently, an imaging technique using microcomputed tomography (micro-CT) has emerged as a method for nondestructively assessing the microarchitecture of unprocessed surgical bone biopsy specimens. Using micro-CT, two-dimensional (2D) axial images were obtained from undecalcified transiliac bone biopsies which were taken from 15 patients with various(More)
Aims/hypothesis. Fat balance is critical in the aetiology of obesity and related diseases. Lipoprotein lipase is of major importance in lipid metabolism. The aim of this study was to investigate the long-term effects of the lipoprotein lipase activator, NO-1886, on substrate utilisation, adiposity and insulin action in rats fed a high-fat diet.¶Methods.(More)
A coupled cell-free translation/glycosylation system, prepared from Spodoptera frugiperda insect cells, was established and optimized for protein production and glycosylation efficiency. Both translation and glycosylation were stimulated by addition of Mg2+, K+, ATP, GTP, creatine kinase and creatine phosphate, suggesting that glycoprotein productivity is(More)
In ad hoc networks, it is effective that each mobile host creates replicas of data items held by other mobile hosts for improving data accessibility. When a mobile host requests a data item (replica) held by another mobile host, it usually uses the shortest path for the data transmission. In this case, mobile hosts at the center of the network relay many(More)
The growth dynamics and mode of competition between adult trees ≥ 5.0cm in diameter at breast height (DBH) of nine abundant treespeciesoccupying ca. 85% of the total basal area were investigated in a 4ha study plot (200 m × 200 m) of awarm-temperate old-growth evergreen broad-leaved forest in the Tatera ForestReserve of Tsushima Island, southwestern Japan.(More)
We report a case of giant congenital melanocytic nevi (GCMN) at risk of developing neurocutaneous melanosis (NCM) with age-related changes observable on MRI of the brain. However, although the usefulness of MR imaging in NCM is well known, age-related changes on MRI have rarely been reported. The prevalence of positive MRI findings and prognosis in GCMN(More)
The effect of an analogue ofl-carnitine, propionyl-l-carnitine, on the electroretinogram, motor nerve conduction velocity and nerve blood flow was determined in rats with streptozotocin-induced diabetes, and was compared with the effects of insulin alone or combined therapy. Oral administration of propionyl-l-carnitine (3 g/kg daily for 4 weeks)(More)
– 2 – Observations of the PSR B1259−63/SS2883 binary system using the CANGAROO-II Cherenkov telescope are reported. This nearby binary consists of a 48 msec radio pulsar in a highly eccentric orbit around a Be star, and offers a unique laboratory to investigate the interactions between the outflows of the pul-sar and Be star at various distances. It has(More)
