Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto Institute of Technology in Kyoto, Japan is a Japanese national university established in 1949. The history of the Institute extends back to two schools, Kyoto Craft High School and Kyoto Sericulture Training School , which were forerunners of the Faculty of Engineering and Design and the Faculty of Textile Science, respectively. The former was moved to Sakyo-ku, Matsugasaki in 1930 and changed its name to Kyoto Industrial High School in 1944. The latter developed into Kyoto Sericulture High School, under direct supervision of the Ministry of Education in 1914, and changed its name to Kyoto Sericulture Technical High School in 1931 and further to Kyoto Technical High School of Sericulture in 1944. The two forerunners merged in 1949, due to educational system revisions, to establish the present School of Science and Technology. Together with Shinshu University and Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, the Institute is one of Japan's three historical centers of textile research.Kyoto Institute of Technology has a campus at Matsugasaki in Sakyō-ku. Another campus is at Saga in Ukyō-ku. Its Japanese nickname is Kōsen . In English it is known as KIT.Beginning in October 2007, graduate course instruction became available in English through the International Program for Science and Technology for specially selected students from the 50 institutions worldwide with KIT Exchange Agreements.

An insect control sheet containing a Cry polyhedron prepared by fixing an insecticidal protein (a Cry toxin) produced by Bacillus thuringiensis to a polyhedron of polyhedrin protein is provided. The insect control sheet contains the Cry polyhedron and is used by floating on water. The insect control sheet is floatable on water, and includes a pure matrix layer 20 and a toxin-containing matrix layer 30 containing the Cry polyhedron 51 which are layered on the underside of a sheet-shaped first sheet substrate 10. The pure matrix layer 20 is composed of a degradable or water-soluble second material and the toxin-containing matrix layer 30 is composed of a degradable or water-soluble third material and the Cry polyhedron. The toxin-containing matrix layer sustainably releases the Cry polyhedron to the water on which the insect control sheet is floated.


The present invention provides a method for refolding an antibody, a process for producing a refolded antibody, a refolded antibody, and uses thereof. The present invention provides a method for refolding an antibody in a liquid phase, the method comprising the steps of denaturing an inactive antibody binding directly or through a linker to a peptide, the peptide having an isoelectric point lower than the isoelectric point of the inactive antibody, and dispersing in a liquid phase the peptide-binding inactive antibody denatured in the step above. The present invention also provides a process for producing a refolded antibody.
