Among the medaka fishes of the genus Oryzias, most species have homomorphic sex chromosomes, while some species, such as Oryzias hubbsi and Oryzias javanicus, have heteromorphic ZW sex chromosomes. In this study, a novel family of repetitive sequence was molecularly cloned from O. hubbsi and characterized by chromosome in situ and filter hybridization,(More)
Altered sensory experience in early life often leads to remarkable adaptations so that humans and animals can make the best use of the available information in a particular environment. By restricting visual input to a limited range of orientations in young animals, this investigation shows that stimulus selectivity, e.g., the sharpness of tuning of single(More)
Gene therapy is in clinical trials in a number of countries, raising the question of whether different ethical standards can be justified in different countries. One key issue is how divergent are the perceptions and bioethical reasoning of peoples around the world. An International Bioethics Survey with 150 questions, including 35 open ones, was developed(More)
Tissue response to preformed tricalcium phosphate (TCP) blocks prepared from alpha-tricalcium phosphate (alpha-TCP) powder by hydration and hardening at 80 degrees C was studied by implanting them subperiosteally on the buccal aspect of the mandible in rabbits. X-ray diffraction of the alpha-TCP powder showed a typical pattern of TCP, whereas a mixed(More)
alpha-Mannosidase activities towards high-mannose oligosaccharides were examined with a detergent-solubilized microsomal preparation from a filamentous fungus, Aspergillus oryzae. In the enzymatic reaction, the pyridylaminated substrate Man(9)GlcNAc(2)-PA was trimmed to Man(8)GlcNAc(2)-PA which lacked one alpha-1,2-mannose residue at the nonreducing(More)
SUMMARY This paper describes a flash ADC using interpolation (IP) and cyclic background self-calibrating techniques. The proposed IP technique that is cascade of capacitor IP and gate IP with dynamic double-tail latched comparator reduces non-linearity, power consumption, and occupied area. The cyclic background self-calibrating technique periodically(More)
A questionnaire written in Portuguese was administered from December 1993 to February 1994 to study the frequency of allergic symptoms among Brazilians of Japanese descent in Japan. The results obtained were as follows. 1) The frequencies of allergy histories were 18% for allergic rhinitis, 14% for atopic dermatitis, 12% for alimentary allergy, 10% for(More)

SUMMARY A 6-bit, 7 mW, 700 MS/s subranging ADC using Capacitive DAC (CDAC) and gate-weighted interpolation fabricated in 90 nm CMOS technology is demonstrated. CDACs are used as a reference selection circuit instead of resistive DACs (RDAC) for reducing settling time and power dissipation. A gate-weighted interpolation scheme is also incorporated to the(More)
The efficacy of using gelatin as an adherent of particulate hydroxylapitite was studied by implanting preformed blocks of a hydroxylapatite-gelatin mixture subperiosteally on the buccal aspect of the mandible in rabbits. The rabbits were killed at 1, 2, 4, 12, and 24 weeks after implantation. After radiographic examination, excised specimens were(More)
