Recent ultrastructural studies revealed that a structure similar to the vertebrate nuclear lamina exists in the nuclei of higher plants. However, plant genomes lack genes for lamins and intermediate-type filament proteins, and this suggests that plant-specific nuclear coiled-coil proteins make up the lamina-like structure in plants. NMCP1 is a protein,… (More)
The Big Robot Mk.1A has two legs with wheels, mounting the pilot at 5m height position. The robot goes forward according with the motion of the feet of the pilot. It is programed to make trajectory of head position of 5m humanoid. Thus, the pilot feels as if his/her body were extended to 5m giant.
Although the introduction of bortezomib and immunomodulatory drugs has led to improved outcomes in patients with multiple myeloma, the disease remains incurable. In an effort to identify more potent and well-tolerated agents for myeloma, we have previously reported that 1'-acetoxychavicol acetate (ACA), a natural condiment from South-East Asia, induces… (More)
