  • Patent number: 10544425
    Abstract: By a QTL analysis and so forth using 4-HPPD inhibitor-susceptible rice and 4-HPPD inhibitor-resistant rice, a hypothetical gene (HIS1 gene) of an iron/ascorbate-dependent oxidoreductase gene located on a short arm of chromosome 2 of rice has been identified as a 4-HPPD inhibitor-resistance gene. Further, it has also been revealed that a homologous gene (HSL1 gene) of the HIS1 gene is located on chromosome 6 of rice. Furthermore, it has been found out that utilizations of these genes make it possible to efficiently produce a plant having increased resistance or susceptibility to a 4-HPPD inhibitor and to efficiently determine whether a plant has resistance or susceptibility to a 4-HPPD inhibitor.

  • Publication number: 20190356834
    Abstract: The present technology relates to an imaging device, an imaging method, and a program capable of making a user feel that imaging is performed. An imaging device includes an imaging element, a mechanical shutter that exposes the imaging element by controlling a light shielding state of light entering the imaging element, an electronic shutter that exposes the imaging element by controlling a reading timing of the imaging element, an electronic shutter driving unit that makes the electronic shutter travel, and a mechanical shutter driving unit that makes the mechanical shutter travel after the exposure of the imaging element by the electronic shutter ends. A control unit that issues a drive instruction to the mechanical shutter driving unit is further included, and the control unit issues the drive instruction at the time when the exposure of the imaging element by the electronic shutter ends. The present technology is available for an imaging device.

  • Patent number: 4978214
    Abstract: A display apparatus for an automotive vehicle for displaying a vehicular driving information, such as vehicle speed, fuel amount, engine coolant temperature and so forth, includes a light shield interpositioned between a semi-transparent projector panel, on which information containing virtual image is formed, and a transparent panel which covers a cavity formed in an instrument panel for receiving an optical image projector device. The transparent panel is so designed as to reflect lights, such as sun beam toward the light shield. With this construction, the sun beam and so forth reflected by the transparent panel can be absorbed by the light shield to maintain contrast of the virtual image formed on the projector panel satisfactorily high and thus may not affect to visibility of the displayed image.
