Provided is a method for adjusting the balance of TNF-R1 and TNF-R2 in cells present at a target organ, tissue or site. In the adjustment method provided, when increasing the relative presence of TNF-R2 compared to the presence of TNF-R1 in the cells, a synthetic peptide is supplied to the cells, with the peptide being essentially made of at a TNF-R1 signal peptide motif or a modified amino acid sequence thereof; and when decreasing the relative presence of TNF-R2 compared to the presence of TNF-R1 in the cells, a synthetic peptide is supplied to the cells, with the peptide being essentially made of a TNF-R2 signal peptide motif or a modified amino acid sequence thereof.

A composition including an artificially synthesized antimicrobial peptide that is not present as a mature peptide in nature. The composition includes an artificially synthesized peptide that has an antimicrobial activity against at least one strain of bacteria or fungi and includes an amino acid sequence represented by any one of SEQ ID NOs: 1 to 6 or an amino acid sequence formed by substituting, deleting and/or adding one, two or three amino acid residues in/from/to the amino acid sequence, and further including at least one species of pharmaceutically acceptable carrier.

This invention provides an artificially synthesized peptide having an activity to inhibit the expression of type 2 TNF receptor (TNF-R2), and a TNF-R2 expression-inhibiting composition including the peptide as an active ingredient. Also provided is a method for inhibiting the expression of TNF-R2 in cells capable of expressing TNF-R2, by using the peptide. The expression of TNF-R2 in the cells is inhibited, by supplying the cells capable of expressing TNF-R2 with a synthetic peptide essentially including of an amino acid sequence constituting a signal peptide in an amyloid precursor protein (APP) or an amino acid sequence formed by substituting, deleting and/or adding one or several amino acid residues in/from/to the amino acid sequence of the signal peptide.

This invention provides a silicon wafer polishing composition used in the presence of an abrasive. The composition comprises a silicon wafer polishing accelerator, an amide group-containing polymer, and water. The amide group-containing polymer has a building unit A in its main chain. The building unit A comprises a main chain carbon atom constituting the main chain of the amide group-containing polymer and a secondary amide group or a tertiary amide group. The carbonyl carbon atom constituting the secondary amide group or tertiary amide group is directly coupled to the main chain carbon atom.
