Patent
Toyota Jidosha Kabushiki Kaisha and Tokyo University of Agriculture | Date: 2015-08-11

The invention relates to a fluid transport pipe. A first unit channel in which a channel cross-sectional area continuously decreases toward a downstream side and a second unit channel in which a channel cross-sectional area continuously increases toward the downstream side are alternately combined. A ratio A (=L/{[Smax]^(1/2)-[Smin]^(1/2)}) is set within a range in which a drag reduction rate R_(D )becomes a positive value. The fluid transport pipe includes: a first opening formed in a channel wall of the first unit channel; a second opening formed in a channel wall of the second unit channel; and a bypass channel that allows by-passing of a flow from the first unit channel to the second unit channel through the openings.


Patent
Tokyo University of Agriculture and Yokogawa Electric Corporation | Date: 2012-08-01

There is provided a nucleic acid extraction method applicable to microbes in a relatively wide range, and capable of rapidly extracting nucleic acid. The nucleic acid extraction method comprises the steps of introducing a cell suspension into a vessel, sealing the vessel, and preheating a heater up to a set temperature not lower than 100C. Further, the method comprises the step of bringing the vessel into contact with the heater heated up to the set temperature, thereby heating the cell suspension housed in the vessel up to a prescribed highest temperature at not lower than 100C with the vessel held in a sealed state.

Provided is an enhancer for cancer thermotherapy not combined with photodynamic therapy. Cancer treatment not combined with photodynamic therapy is made available by using, as an enhancer for cancer thermotherapy, 5-aminolevulinic acids represented by formula (1):R^(2)R^(1)NCH_(2)COCH_(2)CH_(2)COR^(3)(1)[wherein R^(1) and R^(2) each independently represent a hydrogen atom, an alkyl group, an acyl group, an alkoxycarbonyl group, an aryl group, or an aralkyl group; and R^(3) represents a hydroxy group, an alkoxy group, an acyloxy group, an alkoxycarbonyloxy group, an aryloxy group, an aralkyloxy group, or an amino group] or a salt thereof.

Communication among microorganisms is mediated by secretion and detection of microbial signaling molecules such as quorum-sensing pheromones and microbial hormones. The molecules elicit the regulation of important genes necessary for microbial survival and often play important roles in interspecies or even inter-kingdom communication. Recent progress in the study of the signaling molecules has enabled us to eavesdrop on microbial conversations to gain insight on their intercellular communication system. This review summarizes the recent advances in the chemistry and chemical biology of these important microbial signaling molecules: acyl-homoserine lactones (AHLs), AI-2, CAI-1 related α-hydroxy ketones (AHKs), ComX pheromones, diffusible signal factors (DSFs), diffusible extracellular factor (DF), and Phytophthora mating hormones. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

Nitrogen use efficiency (NUE) was originally defined as the dry mass productivity per unit N taken up from soil. The term was subsequently redefined as the product of nitrogen productivity (NP) and mean residence time of nitrogen (MRT). However, this redefinition was found to contradict the original definition under certain conditions, and confusion arose when the MRT defined for a steady-state system was applied to a system that was actually not at steady state. As MRT is the expected length of time that a unit of N newly taken up from soil is retained before being lost, it can be translated into the plant nitrogen duration (PND) divided by the total N uptake. This MRT is determined equally well for a steady state- and a non-steady state system and is in accordance with the original definition of NUE. It can be applied to a herbaceous perennial stand (that was at a steady state) and to an annual stand (that was not at a steady state) to determine NUE. NUE is also applicable when plant growth and reproduction are analyzed in relation to N use. © 2011 Springer-Verlag.


A microbe-protective agent comprises rock powder for suppressing the death of agricultural inoculants; and coated seeds obtained by coating plant seeds with said microbe-protective agent and an agricultural inoculants strain, The coated seeds are prepared by immersing seeds in an aqueous suspension containing an agricultural inoculant and a microbe-protective agent from rock powder. The microbe-protective agent protects agricultural inoculants against harmful microbes such as pathogens which cause plant disease.
