This invention relates to effective use of wheat-Shochu distiller wastes of unused natural resources. Oyster-mushroom and enoki-mushroom of cultivation in mashroom bed media supplemented with dried wheat-Shochu distiller wastes increased proteins and amino acids in fruit-body and bed.Further the high concentration of ornithine was produced from them by Lactic acid bacteria, e.g., Lactobacillus fermentum and Pediococcus pentosaceus.
This fin is a swimming aid that sways sideways like the fins of a fish, thereby generating propulsive force. In performing a stepping motion with both legs while wearing these fins, the swimmer is able to generate leg strength several times greater than that when using conventional fins, thereby boosting the swimmer's propulsive force. This enables more enjoyable, faster, and longer swims, and is also useful for lifesaving.
This is a technology of 2D barcode and its decoder. The 2D codes put on garbage bags can be decoded by the proposed method even when they involve non-linear, non-uniform distortions and a few occlusions.
It is well-known that noble metal-loading on metal oxide materials enhances the catalytic efficiency. As so far, inorganic metal complexes are used for the synthesis of noble metal-loaded materials. We prepared metal complexes containing various alkyl ligands, and then synthesized site-selevtive metal-loaded mesoporous metal-oxides by the modified sol-gel method using the obtained alkyl-metal complexes.
Conventional soft agar colony formation assay is known as one of tumorgenecity indexes; however it is semi-quantitative. This method is a simple and low-cost way to quantitatively assess colony formation using tetrazorium.
The novel cytotoxic agent, hyptoside, induces apoptosis in hematological malignancy and cancer cells. In adittion, hyptoside showes cytotoxicity in multidru-resistant cancer cells, showing clinical possibility for relapsed and/or refractory cases of cancers.
