Provided is an embedding medium for specimen preparation that, when preparing a curable base material nonpenetrating specimen, involves no thermal invasion of the tissue, minimizes wrinkling and tearing during thin slicing, and makes it possible to confirm the position of the tissue in the embedding medium, and also for preparing a curable base material penetrating specimen on the same plane as a curable base material nonpenetrating specimen. The problem can be solved by using an embedding medium for specimen preparation that includes gelatin that is in a liquid state at 15C-25C and assumes a solid state at 4C when made into an aqueous solution.

Provided is a locking plate system for treatment of a distal radius fracture, intended to improve cooperation between screw anchors made of metal and a plate made of resin as well as to enhance matching with respect to the radius. The radius locking plate (4) is a flat laminate of intermediate molding materials that each include carbon fibers as reinforcing material and thermoplastic resin as a matrix. The screw anchor (5) includes a shaft portion (10) which has a principal thread (13) achieving a self-tapping action formed thereon and an outer circumference of a head portion of the screw anchor (5) which has an auxiliary thread (13) achieving a self-tapping action tapped thereon. A diameter of a through-hole (6) in the radius locking plate (4), which allows the radius main body (3) and the fractured bone piece (2) to be threadably fixed to the radius locking plate (4), is oversized relative to the principal thread (11), and is undersized relative to the auxiliary thread (13).

A three-dimensional image reconstruction method capable of analyzing a three-dimensional structure of membrane proteins present within a lipid membrane is offered. A three-dimensional image reconstruction method associated with the present invention comprises the steps of: obtaining a first transmission electron microscope image of a sample containing the membrane proteins present within a lipid membrane, the image having been taken by illuminating an electron beam on the sample from a direction tilted relative to a line normal to the membrane surface of the lipid membrane (step S10); obtaining a second transmission electron microscope image of the sample taken by illuminating the electron beam on the sample perpendicularly to the membrane surface of the lipid membrane (step S12); identifying orientations of the membrane proteins of the first transmission electron microscope image on a basis of the second transmission electron microscope image (step S14); and analyzing a three-dimensional structure of the membrane proteins from the first transmission electron microscope image on a basis of information about the identified orientations of the membrane proteins (step S18).

Transition-metal (TM)-catalyzed hydroarylation reactions of alkynes have received much attention, because they enable the net insertion of alkyne C-C triple bonds into C-H bonds of aromatic precursors, resulting in regio- and stereo-selective formation of synthetically useful arylalkenes. Taking advantage of this feature, TM-catalyzed alkyne hydroarylations have been successfully used for the synthesis of heterocycles. TM-catalyzed alkyne hydroarylations can be classified into three major categories depending on the type of reaction and precursors involved: (1) palladium-catalyzed reductive Heck reactions of alkynes with aryl halides, (2) TM-catalyzed conjugate arylation reactions of activated alkynes with arylboronic acids, and (3) TM-catalyzed aromatic C-H alkenylations with alkynes. This review surveys heterocycle synthesis via TM-catalyzed hydroarylation of alkynes according to the above classification, with an emphasis on the scope and limitations, as well as the underlying mechanisms. © 2014 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
