Cultural differences in the visual processing of meaning: detecting incongruities between background and foreground objects using the N400.
East Asians have been found to allocate relatively greater attention to background objects, whereas European Americans have been found to allocate relatively greater attention to foreground objects.Expand

Rhamnolipid‐Dependent Spreading Growth of Pseudomonas aeruginosa on a High‐Agar Medium: Marked Enhancement under CO2‐Rich Anaerobic Conditions
Anaerobiosis of Pseudomonas aeruginosa in infected organs is now gaining attention as a unique physiological feature. After anaerobic cultivation of P. aeruginosa wild type strain PAO1 T, we noticedExpand

Fine structure of infrared OH-stretching bands in natural and heat-treated amphiboles of the tremolite-ferro-actinolite series
Abstract Fine structure in the principal OH-stretching bands of amphiboles of the tremolite-ferro-actinolite series have been examined. In samples with partly filled A sites, a broad (composite) bandExpand

An unusual terpene cyclization mechanism involving a carbon-carbon bond rearrangement.
Terpene cyclization reactions are fascinating owing to the precise control of connectivity and stereochemistry during the catalytic process. Cyclooctat-9-en-7-ol synthase (CotB2) synthesizes anExpand

Molecular mechanisms of syndecan-4 upregulation by TNF-α in the endothelium-like EAhy926 cells.
Syndecan-4, a cell-surface heparan sulfate proteoglycan, can participate in inflammation and wound healing as a host defense molecule. Tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-α, one of the most potentExpand

Development of a new laboratory test to evaluate antithrombin resistance in plasma.
INTRODUCTION We recently reported a variant prothrombin (p.Arg596Leu: prothrombin Yukuhashi) that confers antithrombin resistance to patients with hereditary thrombosis. To detect antithrombinExpand

Antithrombin-resistant prothrombin Yukuhashi mutation also causes thrombomodulin resistance in fibrinogen clotting but not in protein C activation.
INTRODUCTION Prothrombin Yukuhashi (p.Arg596Leu) mutation can result in thrombophilia associated with antithrombin (AT) resistance. Mutant thrombin, an active form of prothrombin Yukuhashi,Expand
