  • Publication number: 20080009041
    Abstract: According to the present invention, the E. coli mutant strain having chromosomal DNA that is at least 470 kbp shorter than that of a wild-type E. coli strain exhibits such a property that the number of the cells after a certain period of culture is greater than a wild-type strain. Thus, by culturing the mutant strain in a medium so as to generate and accumulate a useful substance in the culture, a useful substance such as proteins, peptides, amino acids, nucleic acids, vitamins, saccharides, organic acids, and lipids can be efficiently produced.

  • Publication number: 20080001875
    Abstract: In a display apparatus, a plurality of pixels including light emitting elements emitting colors of R, G and B, is arranged on a single surface. To each pixel, corresponding R image signal wiring, G image signal wiring, and B image signal wiring, are connected. Wirings are arranged so that the resistance or the capacitance of each image signal wiring differs every color of corresponding pixels, and by this, the rise times of the signal for R, G and B will be substantially equal to each other. The resistance value is changed by adjusting the width, the thickness, or the specific resistance of the material of the image signal wiring, or the capacitance is changed by adjusting the thickness of the insulator or the relative dielectric constant of the material while sandwiching an insulator between the image signal wiring and a scanning wiring at the intersection of them.

  • Publication number: 20070284596
    Abstract: Provided is a novel structure of an active matrix TFT backplane. In order to form an auxiliary capacitor by a pixel electrode or a drain electrode of a TFT connected therewith, a base metal layer is formed on a glass substrate and a substrate insulating layer is formed on an entire surface thereof. By the structure, position alignment of the drain electrode with a counter electrode is unnecessary. An area for electrical capacitor formation is determined by size precision of the drain electrode, so a variation in electrical capacitance is suppressed to a small value.

  • Patent number: 7238501
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a process for producing trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline, which is useful as a raw material for medicines or as an additive to foods. In the process, L-proline is converted into trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline in the presence of an enzyme source which is derived from a microorganism belonging to the genus Dactylosporangium, Amycolatopsis or Streptomyces and which catalyzes the hydroxylation of L-proline into trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline, a divalent iron ion and 2-ketoglutaric acid, in an aqueous medium, and the produced trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline is collected from the aqueous medium. In addition, the present invention is directed to a process for producing trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline, wherein the L-proline biosynthesis activity of the host cell of the transformant is reinforced.
