Low-temperature water-gas shift reaction (WGS) using gold catalyst is expected to be an attractive technique to realize an efficient on-site hydrogen production process. In this paper, Au/Fe 3 O 4 catalysts for promoting the WGS below 150 °C were developed by a preliminary reduction of Au/iron oxide (Fe 3+) catalyst utilizing high reactivity of Au(More)
We developed a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay for detecting Colletotrichum gloeosporioides, which causes anthracnose, in strawberry plants. Primer sets targeted the region from the gene encoding 5.8S ribosomal RNA to internal transcribed spacer 2, which is highly conserved in 25 Colletotrichum species in GenBank. Our results indicated(More)
Aryl hydrocarbon receptor interacting protein (AIP) is thought to be a tumor suppressor gene, as indicated by a mutational analysis of pituitary somatotroph adenomas. However, the physiological significance of AIP inactivation in somatotroph cells remains unclear. Using CRISPR/Cas9, we identified a GH3 cell clone (termed GH3-FTY) in which Aip was(More)
Fe68.8Pd31.2 exhibits an anomalously large magnetostriction of ~400 ppm at room temperature as well as linear, isotropic, and hysteresis free magnetization behavior. This near perfectly reversible magnetic response is attributable to the presence of a large number of premartensitic magnetoelastic twin clusters present in the system made possible through the(More)
Pythium species were isolated from seedlings of strawberry with root and crown rot. The isolates were identified as P. helicoides on the basis of morphological characteristics and sequences of the ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer regions. In pathogenicity tests, the isolates caused root and crown rot similar to the original disease symptoms.(More)
In in vivo spectroscopy, there are differences between individual subjects in parameters such as tissue scattering and sample concentration. We propose a method that can provide the absolute value of a particular substance concentration, independent of these individual differences. Thus, it is not necessary to use the typical statistical calibration curve,(More)
