microRNAs (miRNAs) are tiny endogenous RNAs that have been discovered in animals and plants, and direct the post-transcriptional regulation of target mRNAs for degradation or translational repression via binding to the 3'UTRs and the coding exons. To gain insight into the biological role of miRNAs, it is essential to identify the full repertoire of mRNA targets (target genes). A number of computer programs have been developed for miRNA-target prediction. These programs essentially focus on potential binding sites in 3'UTRs, which are recognized by miRNAs according to specific base-pairing rules. Here, we introduce a novel method for miRNA-target prediction that is entirely independent of existing approaches. The method is based on the hypothesis that transcription of a miRNA and its target genes tend to be co-regulated by common transcription factors. This hypothesis predicts the frequent occurrence of common cis-elements between promoters of a miRNA and its target genes. That is, our proposed method first identifies putative cis-elements in a promoter of a given miRNA, and then identifies genes that contain common putative cis-elements in their promoters. In this paper, we show that a significant number of common cis-elements occur in ~28% of experimentally supported human miRNA-target data. Moreover, we show that the prediction of human miRNA-targets based on our method is statistically significant. Further, we discuss the random incidence of common cis-elements, their consensus sequences, and the advantages and disadvantages of our method. This is the first report indicating prevalence of transcriptional regulation of a miRNA and its target genes by common transcription factors and the predictive ability of miRNA-targets based on this property.

A locking headplate for an adjustable saddle tree includes opposed, hingedly connected plates for securing to a saddle tree head portion and a rotatable displacing element for displacing the hingedly connected plates inwardly or outwardly, wherein the rotatable displacing element assists in retaining the hingedly connected plates in a set spaced-apart configuration when not being rotated. The locking headplate further includes at least one supplemental locking mechanism for selectively preventing rotation of the rotatable displacing element. The hingedly connected plates include apertures for receiving a portion of the rotatable displacing element therethrough, the apertures defining at least one cross-sectional dimension that is greater than a corresponding cross-sectional dimension of the rotatable displacing element. Saddle trees and saddles incorporating the locking headplate are provided.


A portable hand held power inverter/converter having a pass through device for simultaneously sourcing A.C. and multiple voltage D.C. power consuming devices through a single D.C. power source connection. Inverter and converter circuitry is provided to invert and convert D.C. voltage to an A.C. voltage source and a lower DC voltage. A.C. electrical outlets are provided to facilitate a connection to an external A.C. power-consuming device and a DC outlet to a lower volt DC power-consuming device. The pass through device provides an independent and simultaneous connection to an additional D.C. outlet that would otherwise be eliminated when occupied by the inverter thus allowing simultaneous connection and operation of both A.C. and multi source D.C power consuming devices through a single external D.C. power outlet of a single D.C. power source.

ID transmitters, each of which can output a sound wave signal comprising sine waves of different frequencies, are installed apart from one another so that areas where each sound wave signal reaches are different. A predetermined number of frequencies, which are included in a frequency range that uses an uppermost audio frequency range, correspond to a predetermined number of bits with the value of each bit being expressed by the presence or absence of the output of the sine wave of the corresponding frequency. Information is divided into items of partial information with each item of partial information being expressed by at least part of the predetermined number of bits of the sound wave signal. An ID transmitter switches at predetermined time intervals the sound wave signal to be outputted, thereby cyclically outputting sound wave signals expressing the items of partial information in the order the information is formed.

A user is provided with a service based on the users private information while the information is kept secret from any provider involved in the provision of the service. A service provider provides a service using a result of an analysis performed based on two or more information items with respect to stored data. Data received from a user device and stored by a server are data after a process has been performed by using a secret parameter of the user on at least respective parts of data input for these two or more information items. This process is defined such that performing the analysis based on the two or more information items on data stored on the server produces the same result as performing the analysis based on the two or more information items on data input in the user device.


A result of statistical processing for a set of original data items can be obtained while the risk of leakage of information to be hidden is reduced by avoiding transferring and storing original data. Each of a plurality of data input devices comprises: means for acquiring an original data item to be hidden; and means for dividing the original data item in accordance with a secret ratio where adding up all the partial data items restores the original data item, and outputting a predetermined number of partial data items.

Many storage apparatuses are used to allow a large number of files of various sizes to be stored, with single-point-of-failure factors in the system reduced. A storage service provision apparatus (3) provides a service to store a file by means of a plurality of storage apparatuses (4) connected therewith over a network. A file to be written is divided into one or more pieces of data, and object identification information is assigned to each data component of the file (block object). Information for constructing the file using data of each block object (a management information object) is created, and object identification information is assigned to the management information object. Each block object and the management information object are then transmitted to and stored on their respective storage apparatuses (4) of the plurality of storage apparatuses (4) determined based on their own object identification information.
