This paper presents a method for classifying a large and mixed set of uncharacterized sequences provided by genome projects. As the measure of sequence similarity, we use similarity score computed by a method based on the dynamic programming (DP), such as the Smith–Waterman local alignment algorithm. Although comparison by DP based method is very sensitive,(More)
The development of chronic graft-versus-host disease (GVHD), which is induced by the transfer of DBA/2 spleen cells into (C57BL/6 x DBA/2)F1 (BDF1) mice, is closely related to diminished donor anti-host CTL activity and host B cell hyperactivation. Therefore, an approach which activates donor CD8+ T cells or suppresses donor CD4+ T cell-host B cell(More)
Resynthesis of triglycerides in enterocytes of the small intestine plays a critical role in the absorption of dietary fat. Acyl-CoA:monoacylglycerol acyltransferase-2 (MGAT2) is highly expressed in the small intestine and catalyzes the synthesis of diacylglycerol from monoacylglycerol and acyl-CoA. To determine the physiological importance of MGAT2 in(More)
