For understanding the precise mechanisms of molecular recognition of proteins, three-dimensional structural analyses of the protein-protein complexes are essential. For this purpose, a new method to reveal complex structures was developed with the assistance of saturation transfer (SAT) and residual dipolar coupling (RDC) by heteronuclear NMR experiments,(More)
BACKGROUND Buruli ulcer (BU) caused by Mycobacterium ulcerans (M. ulcerans) has emerged as an important public health problem in several rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa. Early diagnosis and prompt treatment are important in preventing disfiguring complications associated with late stages of the disease progression. Presently there is no simple and(More)
Kawasaki disease (KD) is an acute febrile disease of unknown etiology that develops in children and is sometimes accompanied by myocardial dysfunction and systemic vasculitis. However, myocardial repolarization lability has not yet been fully investigated. Thus, the objective of this study was to evaluate myocardial repolarization lability (QT variability(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of mortality in patients with end-stage kidney disease. Chronic kidney disease patients often exhibit a deficiency in L-carnitine due to loss during hemodialysis (HD). We studied the effects of L-carnitine supplementation on brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV), a(More)
Colorless crystals of l-alanine hydrochloride monohydrate, C(3)H(8)NO(2) (+)·Cl(-)·H(2)O, were obtained from a powder sample that had been left standing in a refrigerator for a few years. The structure displays several inter-molecular hydrogen bonds: the hydroxyl O atom is involved in a single hydrogen bond to the chloride anion, while the ammonium group(More)
We examined the developmental change by which autonomic neural activity associated respiration modulates spontaneous firing rate of sinus (SA) node and atrioventricular (AV) conduction in premature infants born with low birth weight (LBWI). The purpose of this study was to clarify whether variation of PR is correlated with that of PP or those are(More)
A slow oscillation of sympathetic vasoconstriction (Mayer waves) which is affected by the respiratory movements seems to appear as the fluctuation of pulse wave amplitude (PPG.P-P) in the frequency domain (0.1 Hz). Whether the vasomotor in low frequency has appeared in the pulse wave of the neonate and whether Mayer waves appear as the pulse wave(More)
