Home appliance networks now have the capability of integrating different features of independent appliances to provide value-added services. Concurrent execution of these services, however, can cause unexpected problems, even when each service is independently correct. This paper addresses the issue of detecting such interactions between services. We(More)
In overlay networks, which are virtual networks for P2P applications, topology mismatching is known as a serious problem to be solved. So far several distributed algorithms have been proposed to reduce link cost caused by this problem. However, they often create long routes with a large number of hops, especially for long distance communications. In this(More)
The novel example of a vinylic hydrogen more reactive than a benzylic hydrogen was found by treatment of a twisted styrene derivative with a strong base followed by D(2)O quenching. In this paper, the full details of the examples of the highly activated vinyl hydrogens in twisted styrene derivatives are described, with a discussion on the correlation(More)
A novel method of rapid and specific detection of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) products from bacterial genomes using Zn finger proteins was developed. Zn finger proteins are DNA-binding proteins that can sequence specifically recognize PCR products. Since Zn finger proteins can directly detect PCR products without undergoing dehybridization, unlike probe(More)
A ring-opening reaction of cyclopropanes with five-membered heteroaromatics having a leaving group at C(2) was found to provide heteroaromatic-fused pyrrolidines in one step. This reaction was successfully applied to the synthesis of the protein kinase C-beta inhibitor JTT-010, which possesses a dihydropyrrolo[1,2-a]indole core.
We have detected PCR products from Salmonella spp. and Influenza A virus using Zn finger protein Zif268 and Sp1, respectively. Previously, we demonstrated a novel method of rapid and specific detection of PCR products from Legionella pneumophila genome using Zn finger protein Sp1. In principle, this methodology might be applied to the detection of most(More)
We constructed a novel bacterial genome detection system using zinc finger protein (ZF) fused with firefly luciferase (ZF-luciferase). Taking advantage of the direct recognition of double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) by ZF, we previously constructed bacterial genome detection systems that did not require dehybridization processes. To detect polymerase chain(More)
This paper shows an experimental trial on part-based online character recognition. The purpose of the trial is to evaluate the discrimination ability of parts of a handwriting character, that is, a temporal pattern showing a character. Each part is a temporal segment of the character and the character is decomposed into a set of parts. Those parts are then(More)
A novel detection system of PCR products from bacterial genomes using Zinc finger proteins was developed. Zinc finger proteins are DNA-binding proteins that can bind to dsDNA with high affinity and specificity. Since Zinc finger proteins can directly detect PCR products and can double-check the specific PCR amplification and sequence specificity of the PCR(More)
