We have examined whether D-amino acid oxidase (DAO) regulates free D-serine content using mutant ddY/DAO- mice lacking DAO activity. We find that the content of D-serine in the serum and cerebellum of mutant mice is much higher than that of normal mice, whereas a slight but significant difference in the cerebral D-serine level is observed between the two(More)

There has been an increasing interest in the application of terahertz (THz) waves to broadband wireless communications. In particular, use of frequencies above 275 GHz is one of the strong concerns among radio scientists and engineers, because these frequency bands have not yet been allocated at specific active services, and there is a possibility to employ(More)
Mutant mice (ddY/DAO-) lacking D-amino acid oxidase in the kidney also lacked this enzyme in the brain. Genetic cross experiments showed that the inheritance of the enzyme in the brain was the same as that in the kidney. The deficiency in the enzyme in the brain could not be separated from that in the kidney. The brain and kidney enzymes showed similar(More)
