The University of Yamanashi is a university that has campuses in Kofu and Tamaho, Japan.The University of Yamanashi has its origin in “Kitenkan” which was founded in 1795 as a branch school of “Shoheizaka-School” of Tokugawa Government and was developed to the Normal School of Yamanashi after the Meiji Restauration. In 1921 the Normal School of Yamanashi for Junior and in 1924 the Yamanashi High School of Engineering were established. After the World War II these three schools were integrated to the University of Yamanashi according to the new school system of Japan. In 1978 the Yamanashi Medical University was opened which was only a Medical University in Prefecture of Yamanashi. Today’s University of Yamanashi was founded in 2002 by a merger between University of Yamanashi and Yamanashi Medical University. It is formally referred to as the National university corporation, University of Yamanashi. In 2012 the Faculty of Education and Human science and the Faculty of Engineering were reorganized and the Faculty of Life and Environmental Science was newly established.The university has therefore four faculties: the Faculty of Education Human science, the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Engineering and the Faculty of Life and Environmental Science. It should not be confused with the similarly named Yamanashi Prefectural University.The University of Yamanashi is located in Kofu, which is the prefectural capital of Yamanashi and is distant about 120 kilometers west from Tokyo. For the University stands in the Center of the Kofu Basin surrounded by many mountains, many students are often engaged in leisure and sports in holidays.The project of the Faculty of Engineering "Research and Education of Integrated Water Resources Management for the Asian Monsoon Region" was adopted as the 21st Century COE Program of 2002-2006. It has been followed by the Global COE Program "Evolution of Research and Education of integrated River Basin Management in Asian Region" since 2007. Kofu Eastern CampusOnly this university has the institution for wine in Japan. The produced wine is available in the shop in this campus.Cooperative Research and Development CenterCenter for Instrumental AnalysisUniversal Information CenterFuel Cell Nanomaterials CenterAdvanced Biotechnology CenterCenter for Higher EducationCenter for Crystal Science and TechnologyThe Institute of Enology and ViticultureCenter for International Education& Office of International Affairs Kofu Western CampusThe Open University of Japan University LibraryHealth Service CenterStudent Hall Campus of the Faculty of MedicineUniversity HospitalUniversal Center for Medical Analysis and ExperimentGround of the Faculty of Medicine↑ ↑ ↑ Wikipedia.

Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and consequent unfolded protein response (UPR) are involved in a diverse range of pathologies including ischemic diseases, neurodegenerative disorders, and metabolic diseases, such as diabetes mellitus. The UPR is also triggered by various environmental factors; e.g., pollutants, infectious pathogens, therapeutic drugs, alcohol, physical stress, and malnutrition. This review summarizes current knowledge on environmental factors that induce ER stress and describes how the UPR is linked to particular pathological states after exposure to environmental triggers. © 2013 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Separators of multiple types capable of supplying and diffusing fluids such as an anode gas, cathode gas and coolant uniformly are prepared and combined to construct a fuel cell stack. Such a cell stack (20) for fuel cells includes separators of at least two types (types CA, C, A, C, CW and AW) for anode gas and cathode gas. Each separator is such that a corrosion-resistance layer is formed on at least one face of a metal plate (30) and a fluid supply and diffusion layer for the corresponding gas is formed by an electrically conductive porous layer on the corrosion-resistant layer. The at least two separators are stacked so as to face each other with at least an electrolyte membrane and catalyst layers on both sides of the membrane (a new membrane electrode assembly N-MEA) being sandwiched between the fluid supply and diffusion layers of the separators.
