Killer cell lectin-like receptor G1 (KLRG1) is an inhibitory receptor expressed on subsets of natural killer (NK) cells and T cells, for which no endogenous ligands are known. Here, we show that KLRG1 binds three of the classical cadherins (E-, N-, and R-), which are ubiquitously expressed in vertebrates and mediate cell-cell adhesion by homotypic or(More)
In this paper, we propose a mobile cooking recipe recom mendation system employing object recognition for food ingredients such as vegetables and meats. The proposed system carries out object recognition on food ingredients in a real-time way on an Android-based smartphone, and recommends cooking recipes related to the recognized food ingredients. By only(More)
Humanin (HN) is an endogenous 24-residue peptide. A highly potent HN derivative, S14G-HN, which has a substitution of serine 14 to glycine, reduced amyloid burden and suppressed cognitive impairment in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease. S14G-HN also suppressed amnesia induced by a muscarinic receptor antagonist in rodents. To understand the effects of HN(More)
The carbohydrate moieties of arabinogalactan-proteins (AGPs) have β-(1 → 3)-galactan backbones to which side chains of (1 → 6)-linked β-Gal residues are attached through O-6. Some of these side chains are further substituted with other sugars. We investigated the structure of L-Fuc-containing oligosaccharides released from the carbohydrate moieties of a(More)
In this demo, we demonstrate a cooking recipe recommendation system which runs on a consumer smartphone. The proposed system carries out object recognition on food ingredients in a real-time way, and recommends cooking recipes related to the recognized food ingredients. By only pointing a built-in camera on a mobile device to food ingredients , the user can(More)
