We have developed a simple method for determination of 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol in plasma, based on use of pyranose oxidase (EC, an enzyme with specificity toward pyranoid compounds such as 1,5-anhydro-D-glucitol and glucose. Plasma samples deproteinized with trichloroacetic acid are passed through a two-layer mini-column packed with strongly basic(More)
A lipid assembly composed of a finite number of lipid molecules can have multiple metastable structures. Using a series of coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations, we evaluate the free energy profile for the transformation of a small vesicle to a disk-like structure called a bicelle. This free energy is found to be lower than that predicted from(More)
We study the time-correlation function of a density field in two-dimensional driven diffusive systems within the framework of fluctuating hydrodynamics. It is found that the time correlation exhibits power-law behavior in an intermediate time regime in the case that the fluctuation-dissipation relation is violated and that the power-law exponent depends on(More)
