Characterization of cardiac MYPT2 (an isoform of the smooth muscle phosphatase [MP] target subunit, MYPT1) is described. Several features of MYPT2 and MYPT1 were similar, including: a specific interaction with the catalytic subunit of type 1 phosphatase, delta isoform (PP1cdelta); interaction of MYPT2 with the small heart-specific MP subunit; interaction of(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze visual search strategies of baseball batters during the viewing period of the pitcher's motion. The 18 subjects were 9 experts and 9 novices. While subjects viewed a videotape which, from a right-handed batter's perspective, showed a pitcher throwing a series of 10 types of pitches, their eye movements were measured and(More)
-Low-power test technology has been investigated deeply to achieve an accurate and efficient testing. Although many sophisticated methods are proposed for scan-test, there are not so many for logic BIST because of its uncontrollable randomness. However, logic BIST currently becomes vital for system debug or field test. This paper proposes a novel low power(More)
A 57-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman presented with cerebral abscesses. Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and conventional MR imaging clearly showed the different stages of the course of the brain abscesses. As the abscess matured, the signal intensity of the center gradually increased to the typical high value with a low apparent(More)
OBJECTIVES The aortic augmentation index (AI) and aortic pulse wave velocity (PWV) are known to be indicators of arterial stiffness. However, it is not clear whether aortic AI and PWV reflect aortic stiffness in similar ways. We investigated the relationship between aortic AI and PWV by measuring them directly using a catheter technique. DESIGN AND(More)
BCOR-CCNB3 sarcoma is a recently recognized tumor morphologically and clinically simulating Ewing sarcoma. We herein retrospectively collected clinicopathologic data on BCOR-CCNB3 sarcoma in the Kyoto University Hospital over the last 10 years. Three (20%) bone sarcomas were revealed to be diffusely positive for CCNB3 immunohistochemistry among 15 pediatric(More)
This study analyzed the visual behaviors of soccer players while they kicked with the inside of the foot, which involved near and far aiming skills. Participants (N = 8) were required to step forward and kick a ball to hit a target. The top three scorers were defined as the High-score group, and the three low scorers were defined as the Low-score group.(More)
The purpose of this study was to clarify golfers' scanning patterns while putting through direct measurement of their eye movements. Each of the 17 subjects (3 experts, 3 intermediates, 11 beginners) performed 10 consecutive putts on a practice mat, from a position 2 m from the hole. The analysis of their eye-movements indicated differences among these(More)
This study analyzed visual search strategies of soccer players in one-on-one defensive situations on the field. The 8 subjects were 4 experts and 4 novices. While subjects tackled an offensive player for possession of the ball, their eye movements were measured and analyzed. Statistically significant differences between the visual search strategies of(More)
Upon forming a solid solution between CuGaS2 and ZnS, we have successfully developed a highly active (CuGa)(1-x)Zn(2x)S2 photocatalyst for H2 evolution in the presence of sacrificial reagents under visible light irradiation. The Ru-loaded (CuGa)0.8Zn0.4S2 functioned as a H2-evolving photocatalyst in a Z-scheme system with BiVO4 of an O2-evolving(More)
