A living body state estimation apparatus acquires information indicating a state of a living body. The living body state estimation apparatus is configured to include an electrocardiogram signal acquisition unit which acquires an electrocardiogram signal of the living body and an information acquisition unit which acquires a parameter as the information, the parameter specifying a predetermined function indicating a probability distribution for a reference wave interval which is a time interval between peaks of consecutive predetermined reference waves in the acquired electrocardiogram signal.


Provided is a method for producing a polyisoprenoid, which can increase natural rubber production by enhancing the rubber synthesis activity of rubber particles. The present invention provides methods for producing a polyisoprenoid using a gene coding for a cis-prenyltransferase (CPT) family protein, a gene coding for a Nogo-B receptor (NgBR) family protein and a gene coding for a rubber elongation factor (REF) family protein, specifically a method for producing a polyisoprenoid in vitro using rubber particles bound to proteins coded for by these genes, and a method for producing a polyisoprenoid in vivo using a recombinant organism (plant) having these genes introduced therein.
