An alginate lyase from the culture supernatant of Enterobacter cloacae M-1 was purified by ammonium sulfate precipitation, cation-exchange chromatography (SP-Toyopearl), and gel filtration (Ultrogel AcA44). The final preparation thus obtained showed a single band on SDS-PAGE. The purified enzyme had the molecular weight of 38,000 and 32,000 by SDS-PAGE and(More)
In this paper, we discuss the self-preserving function in the pulsation of circulation systems. Humans and many animals have circulation systems, which send blood with pulsation. However, how the pulsation is supporting the survival capability of them is not studied sufficiently. We propose an artificial circulation system that imitates homeostatic(More)
Three positional isomers of 6(1),6(n)-di-O-(alpha-L-fucopyranosyl)-beta-cyclodextrin [6(1),6(n)-di-O-(alpha-L-Fuc)-betaCD, n=2-4] were chemically synthesized by using the corresponding authentic compounds, 6(1),6(n)-di-O-(tert-butyldimethylsilyl)-betaCD (n=2-4) as fucosyl acceptors and 2,3,4-tri-O-benzyl-L-fucopyranosyl trichloroacetimidate as a fucosyl(More)
The common mismatch repair system processed by MutS and MutL and their homologs was identified in Bacteria and Eukarya. However, no evidence of a functional MutS/L homolog has been reported for archaeal organisms, and it is not known whether the mismatch repair system is conserved in Archaea. Here, we describe an endonuclease that cleaves double-stranded(More)
A large number of video files are shared in video sharing sites in the internet. In this paper, we propose video community extracting methods based on web community extracting method, which consist of <i>Fan</i> pages and <i>Center</i> pages, tf-idf, and Zipf's low. With our proposed methods, a video and a video list are considered as a <i>Center</i> page(More)
Mass spectral measurements by electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) detected the ions of beta-cyclodextrin (betaCD) or branched betaCDs (glucosyl-, galactosyl-, mannosyl- and maltosyl-betaCD)-prostaglandins (PGs: PGA(2), PGD(2), PGE(1), PGE(2), PGF(2alpha) and PGJ(2)) complexes, i.e., betaCD-PG complexes, with a host:guest ratio of 1:1 in the(More)
6(I),6(IV)-Di-O-[α-l-fucopyranosyl-(1→6)-2-acetamido-2-deoxy-β-d-glucopyranosyl]-cyclomaltoheptaose (βCD) {6(I),6(IV)-di-O-[α-l-Fuc-(1→6)-β-d-GlcNAc]-βCD (5)} and 6-O-[α-l-fucopyranosyl-(1→6)-2-acetamido-2-deoxy-β-d-glucopyranosyl]-βCD {6-O-[α-l-Fuc-(1→6)-β-d-GlcNAc]-βCD (6)} were chemically synthesized using the corresponding authentic compounds,(More)
Three positional isomers of 6(I),6(n)-di-O-(beta-L-fucopyranosyl)-cyclomaltoheptaose [6(I),6(n)-di-O-(beta-L-Fuc)-beta-cyclodextrin, -betaCD, n=II-IV] were chemically synthesized using the corresponding authentic compounds, 6(I),6(n)-di-O-(tert-butyldimethylsilyl)-betaCD (n=II-IV), as the fucosyl acceptors, and 2,3,4-tri-O-acetyl-L-fucopyranosyl(More)
Lesions to brain regions such as the temporoparietal junction (TPJ) and inferior frontal cortex (IFC) are thought to cause autism-spectrum disorder (ASD). Previous studies indicated that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) of the right TPJ improves social cognitive functions such as imitation-inhibition and perspective-taking. Although previous(More)
From a mixture of N-acetylglucosaminyl-beta-cyclodextrin (GlcNAc-betaCD) and lactose, beta-D-galactosyl-GlcNAc-betaCD (Gal-GlcNAc-betaCD) was synthesized by the transfer action of beta-galactosidase. GlcNAc-maltotriose (Glc3) and Gal-GlcNAc-Glc3 were produced with hydrolysis of GlcNAc-betaCD by cyclodextrin glycosyltransferase, and Gal-GlcNAc-betaCD by(More)
