  • Publication number: 20210298277
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a human artificial chromosome which is genetically transmissible to the next generation with high efficiency and the method for using the same. More specifically, the present invention relates to: a human artificial chromosome in which an about 3.5 Mb to about 1 Mb region containing an antibody ? light chain gene derived from human chromosome 22 is bound to a chromosome fragment which is transmissible to a progeny through a germ line of a non-human animal, said chromosome fragment is derived from another human chromosome; a non-human animal carrying the human artificial chromosome and an offspring thereof; a method for producing the non-human animal; a method for producing a human antibody using the nonhuman animal or an offspring thereof; and a human antibody-producing mouse carrying the human artificial chromosome.

  • Publication number: 20200377972
    Abstract: A method includes the production of a primary ingot, the production of a secondary ingot, and the removal of a flux layer. A CaO—CaF2 flux in a content of 3-20 mass % and obtained by mixing 35-95 mass % of CaF2 with CaO is added to a Ti—Al alloy material including a total of at least 0.1 mass % of oxygen and at least 40 mass % of Al, and the resultant substance is melted by a melting method using a water-cooled copper container in an atmosphere having a pressure of 1.33 Pa or higher and held to produce the primary ingot. The primary ingot is continuously drawn downwards while being melted by a melting method using a bottomless water-cooled copper casting mould in an atmosphere having a pressure of 1.33 Pa or higher to produce the secondary ingot. The flux layer deposited on the surface of the secondary ingot is mechanically removed.

  • Patent number: 9736761
    Abstract: A relay station 200 constructs an infrastructure wireless network 200L. A printing device 100 requests new participation in the wireless network 200L. When preset conditions are satisfied, for example, when the user has pressed a push button 201 provided on the relay station 200, the relay station 200 establishes temporary wireless communication with the printing device 100 and changes an SSID of the printing device 100 to an SSID of the relay station 200. In this manner, this arrangement readily changes the configuration information of the printing device 100.
