Robotic fish are nowadays developed for various types of research, such as bio-inspiredrobotics, biomimetics and animal behavior studies. In the context of our research on the social interactions of the zebrafish Danio Rerio, we developed a miniature robotic fish lure for direct underwater interaction with the living fish. This remotely controlled and(More)
Carbacaprazamycins, which are chemically stable analogues of caprazamycins, were designed and synthesized. These analogues were active against drug-resistant bacterial pathogens such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and vancomycin-resistant enterococci, and their activities were comparable to those of the parent caprazamycins. The effect of(More)
We present a simple method for DNA translocation driven by applying AC voltages, such as square and sawtooth waves, on an embedded thin film as a gate electrode inside of a dielectric nanopore, without applying a conventional bias voltage externally across the pore membrane. Square waveforms on a gate can drive a single DNA molecule into a nanopore, which(More)

We used fluorescence microscopy to investigate the diffusion and drift motion of λ DNA molecules on an Au-coated membrane surface near nanopores, prior to their translocation through solid-state nanopores. With the capability of controlling electric potential at the Au surface as a gate voltage, Vgate, the motions of DNA molecules, which are presumably(More)
This Recently, however, such sites have served as places for information exchange between aged persons, and a place to enjoy and maintain physical and mental health through recreational activities, classroom lectures and study groups, etc. Often aged persons are unaware of the decline of their bodies, and daily lifestyle management is needed for a full(More)
We report the result from observations conducted with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) to detect [Cii] 158 μm fine structure line emission from galaxies embedded in one of the most spectacular Lyα blobs (LABs) at z = 3.1, SSA22-LAB1. Of three dusty star-forming galaxies previously discovered by ALMA 860 μm dust continuum survey toward(More)
We present results from a deep 2′×3′ (comoving scale of 3.7 Mpc×5.5 Mpc at z = 3) survey at 1.1mm, taken with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in the SSA22 field. We observe the core region of a z = 3.09 protocluster, achieving a typical rms sensitivity of 60 μJy beam at a spatial resolution of 0 7. We detect 18 robust ALMA(More)
