The present invention causes measurement light, emitted from an object and to be measured, to enter a fixed mirror and a movable mirror forming interfering light between the measurement light reflected by the fixed mirror and measurement light reflected by the movable mirror. Change to the intensity of the interference light of measurement light is obtained by moving the movable mirror unit, acquiring the interferogram of measurement light. Reference light of a narrow wavelength band included in a wavelength band of the measurement light enters the fixed mirror and the movable mirror, forming interference light of the reference light. The movable mirror is moved to correct the interferogram of measurement light, which is at the same wavelength as the reference light in the measurement light, and the reference light, and a spectrum of the measurement light is acquired based on the corrected interferogram.

The present invention provides galectin-9 variant having substantially the same bioactivity as in wild-type galectin-9 and being superior in protease stability, solubility, and yield. The galectin-9 variant according to the present invention is a protein including the following NCRD and the following CCRD composed of an N-terminal region and a C-terminal region. The C terminus of the NCRD and the N terminus of the CCRD are directly or indirectly bound to each other. The NCRD is (N1) a peptide composed of an amino acid sequence represented by SEQ ID NO: 1. The N-terminal region of the CCRD is (C-N1) a peptide composed of an amino acid sequence obtained by deletion of 1 to 17 amino acids in an amino acid sequence represented by SEQ ID NO: 3. The C-terminal region is (C-C1) a peptide composed of an amino acid sequence represented by SEQ ID NO: 5.

Provided is a composition that enhances the effects of monosaccharides. The composition is a composition comprising a monosaccharide as an active ingredient thereof and comprising at least one or more assistants selected from a nonionic surfactant (excluding acetylene glycol-based surfactants, fluorine-based surfactants and silicone-based surfactants), an anionic surfactant (excluding lignin sulfonate), a cationic surfactant, an amphoteric surfactant, a water-soluble polymer, an amino acid, an amino sugar, a disaccharide alcohol and a salt, and is effective as an agricultural control composition against plant disease, particularly plant disease caused by fungi and plant disease caused by bacteria.

A processed konjac food having blood glucose increase suppressing effect is provided. The processed konjac food having blood glucose increase suppressing effect contains a konjac having a pH in a range of 2.5 to 7.4 and a rare sugar as active ingredients, is intended for ingestion of the rare sugar at a daily dose of 0.3 to 50 g/day for suppressing blood glucose increase, and is shaped into a rectangular, thread, round, grain, or plate form. The blood glucose increase effect can last for at least one day after one-time ingestion. For example, by making a konjac containing a rare sugar into a processed food, the product can be adapted to any consumer preferences without impediment upon eating or drinking, and therefore, a long-term ingestion is facilitated and the blood glucose increase suppressing effect can be sustained for a long period.
