1986 Nucleic Acids Research  
More than 21 members of 17.6, a Drosophila retrotransposon, were isolated and their possible structural changes were examined by restriction mapping, blot hybridization, heteroduplex analysis and nucleotide sequence determination of long terminal repeats (LTRs). At least 7 members were found to suffer with terminal or internal long deletions. No pair of LTRs having an identical nucleotide sequence was found either within an element or between elements. Although an initiation site for the

A novel LC–MS method using collagen marker peptides for species identification of glue applicable to samples with multiple animal origins

Yuki Kumazawa, Yuki Taga, Miho Takashima, Shunji Hattori
2018 Heritage Science  
Animal glues derived from collagen-rich tissue are widely used as adhesives and binders in artworks. Identification of the animal source of glue is important not only to understand the artistic technique and historical background, but also to conduct appropriate treatment for restoration and conservation of artworks. Recently, mass spectrometric approaches have been used for species identification of glue. However, it appears that the existing methods were not applied to samples containing

In the present study, we established a novel method for discrimination of glues from eight animals applicable to samples with multiple animal origins. Trypsindigested glue samples were analyzed by LC-MS in multiple reaction monitoring mode, and the animal source was determined based on the detection patterns of 12 type I collagen-derived marker peptides. Using the databaseindependent method, we successfully identified the animal source of commercial products and found the declared species for some glues to be incorrect. In addition, some products were identified to contain two different animal origins. Relative abundance of the animal origins in several impure glues was estimated using the marker peptides, which helped to speculate the reason for the detection of multiple species. We analyzed a painting (The Harvest by Camille Pissarro, 1882) and clarified that glues used in the ground and size layers of the canvas were derived from cattle (~ 65%) and sheep (~ 35%).

2007 TANSO  
Sheet-type heaters were prepared using polyimide as a matrix with a mixture of two types of vapor-grown nanocarbon fillers, VGCF and cup-stacked carbon nanotubes (CSNT) , and their electrical resistivity, thermal expansion and filler dispersion properties were evaluated. By using the heat resistant polymer, polyimide, it was expected that the positive temperature coefficient (PTC) effects appear at higher temperatures. The results showed that the nanocarbons were dispersed homogeneously and

Control Input Design for a Robot Swarm Maintaining Safety Distances in Crowded Environment

Yuki Origane, Yuya Hattori, Daisuke Kurabayashi
2021 Symmetry  
We consider an autonomous and decentralized mobile robotic swarm that does not require an advanced communication system; moreover, each robot must pass a narrow space preserving the distance with other robots. The control barrier function (CBF) method is useful for robotic swarms to guarantee collision avoidance. However, introducing CBF inequalities can cancel other objectives and sometimes causes a deadlock problem. Therefore, we introduce a coupled oscillator system to generate asymmetric

Factors Related to Life-space Prediction of Older Adults after Discharge

2018 Rigakuryoho Kagaku  
Purpose] The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the life-space of older adults after discharge can be predicted, and to clarify the factors associated with life-space prediction and actual life-space. [Participants and Methods] This prospective cohort study included 33 patients who were discharged to home. We evaluated the patients' predicted life-space (LSA) of 2 months after discharge, as well as BBS, TUG, FES-I, and FIM at the time of discharge, and LSA was re-evaluated 2

[Results] There was a strong correlation between predicted LSA and actual LSA. TUG was associated with both the predicted and actual LSA, whereas BBS was only associated with actual LSA. [Conclusion] It is possible to predict the life-space of older adults after discharge. In addition, the results suggest that mobility is associated with predicted and actual life space.

2014 Tetrahedron Letters  
Four diastereomers of tetradenolide, a cytotoxic -pyrone isolated from Tetradenia riparia, were synthesized stereoselectively using Z-selective Horner-Emmons reaction followed by acid catalyzed lactonization. Making comparison of the 1 H and 13 C NMR spectral data of the four diastereomers with those of the reported value of natural product did not lead to determine the relative stereochemistry of the natural tetradenolide. Thus detailed investigation of the spectral data of the related

Tetradenolide is an antimicrobial, phytotoxic and cytotoxic -pyrone isolated by Luc Van Puyvelde and De Kimpe from Tetradenia riparia. 1 The related compound (+)-deacetylboronolide was isolated Luc Van Puyvelde and co-workers from the same plant, Tetradenia riparia (Hochst) N. E. Br. (Labiatae) 2 and (+)-boronolide was isolated from Tetradenia fruticosa Benth and Tetradenia barbera (N. E. Br.) Codd, respectively. 3,4 As to the biological activity of boronolides, anti-malarial activity was reported ( Figure 1 ). 2,5 Many reports of the syntheses of (+)-boronolide and (+)-deacetylboronolide have been published so far. 6 However, synthetic study of teradenolide has not been reported yet. The reported structure of tetradenolide was shown in Figure 1 and the relative stereochemistry and optical rotation value of this compound were not reported. 1

Synthesis of Triazine Dendrimers

2000 Kobunshi ronbunshu (Tokyo)  
The synthesis of dendrimers with a 1,3,5-triazine ring at the branch point by the convergent technique was investigated. First, 2,4 dichloro-6-(p-nitroanilino) -1,3,5-triazine (DCNT) was obtained by the reaction of cyanuric chloride with p -nitroaniline . Subsequently , DCNT was subjected to the reaction with two folds of aniline followed by the reduction of NO2 group giving rise to the first gen eration dendron (G1-A) having reactive NH2 group at the focal point . The second generation dendron
more » ... (G2-A) was also secured by the analogous reaction of DCNT with G1-A. Although the reaction of DCNT with G2-A afforded a mixture of G3-N (1:2 adduct) and 1:1 adduct, the direct reduction of these crude products provided the third generation dendron (G3-A) in low yield . The dendrimers up to the second genaration ([G2]3-C) could ultimately be synthesized by the coupling of each dendron with cyanuric chloride . Since the obtained dendrimers have imine-like nitrogen-linked 1 ,3,5-triazine and benzene rings alternately, they were supposed to be relatively planar . The characteristics of triazine dendrimers are also described .

The different effects of deoxynivalenol (DON) on intestinal barrier and stem cells by its route of exposure remain less known. We explored the toxic effects of DON on intestinal barrier functions and stem cells after DON microinjection (luminal exposure) or addition to a culture medium (basolateral exposure) using three-dimensional mouse intestinal organoids (enteroids). The influx test using fluorescein-labeled dextran showed that basolateral DON exposure (1 micromolar (µM) disrupted

Moreover, an immunofluorescence experiment of intestinal epithelial proteins, such as E-cadherin, claudin, zonula occludens-1 (ZO-1), and occludin, exhibited that only basolateral DON exposure broke down intestinal epithelial integrity. A time-lapse analysis using enteroids from leucine-rich repeat-containing G-protein-coupled receptor 5 (Lgr5)-enhanced green fluorescence protein (EGFP) transgenic mice and 5-ethynyl-2-deoxyuridine (EdU) assay indicated that only the basolateral DON exposure, but not luminal DON exposure, suppressed Lgr5+ stem cell count and proliferative cell ratio, respectively. These results revealed that basolateral DON exposure has larger impacts on intestinal barrier function and stem cells than luminal DON exposure. This is the first report that DON had different impacts on intestinal stem cells depending on the administration route. In addition, RNA sequencing analysis showed different expression of genes among enteroids after basolateral and luminal DON exposure.

We investigated the characteristics of extracellular matrix (ECM) in the soft tissue of two frozen baby woolly mammoths ( Mammuthus primigenius ) that died and were buried in Siberian permafrost approximately 40,000 years ago. Morphological and biochemical analyses of mammoth lung and liver demonstrated that those soft tissues were preserved at the gross anatomical and histological levels. The ultrastructure of ECM components, namely a fibrillar structure with a collagen-characteristic pattern

Quantitative amino acid analysis of liver and lung tissues of the baby mammoths indicated that collagenous protein is selectively preserved in these tissues as a main protein. Type I and type III collagens were detected as major components by means of liquid chromatography–mass spectrometry analysis after digestion with trypsin. These results indicate that the triple helical collagen molecule, which is resistant to proteinase digestion, has been preserved in the soft tissues of these frozen mammoths for 40,000 years.
