We describe the geometrical properties of solid's shadows projected onto a flat plane by point-light sources. Even though the shape and position of each element are arbitrary and unknown, we indicate that there exists a certain constraint between three shadows on the plane; i.e., three cross points determined by pairs of tangential lines must sit on a(More)
We introduce a new environment to make and play interactive contents with more than video game quality. The system consists of a projector array, a viewer and an editor for the special contents. The projector array projects multiple digital images seamlessly both in time and space, thus a very high quality video projection system. The viewer features a(More)
We propose a method to estimate camera parameters from video sequences for the purpose of natural CG composite remarking the problem of stabilization. When the video is taken under wrong condition, it is inescapable that the estimated parameters contain non negligible errors which cause an unexpected shaking of CG object. To avoid this problem, we introduce(More)
Mitsugumin 23 (MG23) is a 23 kDa transmembrane protein localized to the sarcoplasmic/endoplasmic reticulum and nuclear membranes in a wide variety of cells. Although the characteristics imply the participation in a fundamental function in intracellular membrane systems, the physiological role of MG23 is unknown. Here we report the biochemical and(More)
In the single particle reconstruction, the initial 3D structure often suffers from the limited angular sampling artifact. Selecting 2D class averages of particle images generally improves the accuracy and efficiency of the reference-free 3D angle estimation, but causes an insufficient angular sampling to fill the information of the target object in the 3D(More)
Electron tomography (ET) of biological samples is used to study the organization and the structure of the whole cell and subcellular complexes in great detail. However, projections cannot be acquired over full tilt angle range with biological samples in electron microscopy. ET image reconstruction can be considered an ill-posed problem because of this(More)
The Sec translocon facilitates transportation of newly synthesized polypeptides from the cytoplasm to the lumen/periplasm across the phospholipid membrane. Although the polypeptide-conducting machinery is formed by the SecYEG-SecA complex in bacteria, its transportation efficiency is markedly enhanced by SecDF. A previous study suggested that SecDF assumes(More)
