The circadian rhythm of eclosion activity and its pacemaker were analyzed in a series of latitudinal races of Drosophila auraria ranging from 34.2 degrees to 42.9 degrees N in Japan. The phase of the rhythm (psi EL) to the daily photoperiod (PP) changes as daylength is increased, and the slope of psi EL (PP) changes with latitude. Is is sufficiently greater(More)
This paper develops several propositions concerning the lability of the amplitude of Drosophila circadian pacemakers. The first is that the amplitude of the pacemaker's motion, unlike its period, is markedly temperature-dependent. The second is that latitudinal variation in pacemaker amplitude (higher in the north) is responsible for two very different sets(More)
The photoperiodic responses of Drosophila auraria are shown to involve its circadian system functioning as the "clock" that measures the duration of darkness at night. Attempts at further clarification of this finding were based on the widely held assumption that adaptive adjustment of critical night length is caused by change in the circadian system's(More)
This is a report of subdural abscess following chronic subdural hematoma. An 86-year-old male was admitted to our hospital due to drowsiness and left hemiparesis. He had been suffering from a spike fever which originated during chronic cholecystitis and cholelithiasis and which had continued since 2 years prior to admission. On admission, CT scans revealed(More)
1. ABSTRACT Proper depiction of the water vapor distribution in the upper troposphere and its radiative properties is critical for the accuracy of climate and atmospheric circulation model predictions. In this work, differences between satellite observations (from Terra-MODIS) and simulations from atmospheric models outputs are examined. The models are the(More)
We report the case of a 21-year-old woman who presented with a 2-year history of worsening radicular pain on the right leg. The Valsalva manoeuvre provoked radicular pain and radiography showed right-convex 36 degrees scoliosis. Examination showed slight hypoesthesia on the right L3-S1 dermatomes but abnormal muscle power and reflexes. Magnetic resonance(More)

Carbohydrate antigens on the surface of mammalian cells have recently gained renewed interest because some are specifically expressed at certain stages of cellular differentiation. Most of the useful antibodies detecting such carbohydrate antigens have been monoclonal antibodies produced by the hybridoma technique using whole cells as the immunogen or the(More)
