  • Patent number: 7402406
    Abstract: The present invention identified OVARC1000473 (SEQ ID NO: 1) and NT2RM1000377 (SEQ ID NO: 3) as clones showing suppression of CREB activation by forskolin, and provides evaluation methods using these genes, and/or proteins encoded by these genes. Furthermore, these proteins were found to enhance cell damage. Compounds that can be screened based on the evaluation methods of this invention are useful as agents for inhibiting the CREB dephosphorylation reaction, agents for suppressing enhancement of cell damage, and preventive and therapeutic agents for memory disorders and/or neurodegenerative disorders.

  • Patent number: 6427060
    Abstract: In an image forming apparatus, during a continuous image forming mode, in a case where the number of recording members on which to form an image is not less than a predetermined number, a cleaning web is wound by a second amount larger than a first amount which is used for the ordinary winding of the cleaning web, after completion of a continuous image forming operation. Thus, a recording member to be next used for image formation can be prevented from being smudged.
