We examined the effects of the transparent fibroin film (silk film) on full-thickness skin wounds. Full-thickness dermatotomies (15 mm x 9 mm) were prepared on the dorsal wall of CRJ:CD-1 nu/nu (ICR nu/nu) mice. The area of the wounds dressed with silk film was reduced to 10% of that made by the dermatotomy 14 days after the dermatotomy and were covered(More)
Cryopreservation techniques are expected to evolve further to preserve biomaterials and foods in a fresh state for extended periods of time. Long-term cryopreservation of living materials such as food and biological tissue is generally achieved by freezing; thus, intracellular freezing occurs. Intracellular freezing injures the cells and leads to cell(More)
In this paper, we verify practical effectiveness of ANC systems using the perturbation method with a correlation removal filter. Many microphones are generally needed to pick up all noise signals where some noise signals are simultaneously controlled in more spacious space. Therefore, the noise signals give correlations between reference signals and then(More)
It has recently been demonstrated that prostaglandins (PGs) play an important role in the ovulation, the onset of menstruation and labor pain and other reproductive phenomena. The purpose of this study is to develop the enzyme immunoassay (EIA) for PGF2 alpha to estimate the PGF2 alpha level in body fluids. beta-Galactosidase-PGF2 alpha conjugate and bovine(More)
Human term placental explants were used to investigate the possible role of phospholipid-sensitive and Ca2+ dependent protein kinase in the regulation of human placental progesterone production. Placental tissue was incubated with low density lipoprotein as a precursor of progesterone in the presence or the absence of phorbol 12-myristate-13-acetate,(More)
