  • Patent number: 8788636
    Abstract: A managed server (srv-10) is powered on by a power controlling unit. The managed server executes a POST process, and transfers a PXE request to a boot controlling unit. The boot controlling unit transfers an HBA vendor determining program. In the managed server, the WWN is set by an HBA vendor-dedicated program corresponding to an HBA vendor, and when a PCI initialization code can not be loaded, the POST process is re-started, and the PXE request is transferred again. The boot controlling unit transfers an NOP program, and the managed server starts an OS with a SAN boot.

  • Patent number: 7879603
    Abstract: To control the differentiation of mesenchymal stem cells into steroid hormone producing cells. Mesenchymal stem cells can be differentiated into steroid hormone-producing cells by being stimulated by a transcriptional factor (SF-1), preferably by the transcriptional factor (SF-1) and cAMP. The present invention is a method for differentiating mesenchymal stem cells into steroid hormone producing cells, comprising stimulating the mesenchymal stem cells by the transcriptional factor (SF-1).

  • Publication number: 20080177592
    Abstract: Input of cause-and-effect model information where the coefficients at which three evaluated values, i.e., the evaluated values of business strategy, research-and-development strategy, and intellectual property strategy influence the company evaluated value, the coefficients at which the three evaluated values and the company evaluated value influence the observable indexes respectively, the error variables with which the factors other than the three evaluated values and the company evaluated value give variations to the company evaluated value and the observable indexes respectively are assumed is received. From the inputted the cause-and-effect model information and the observable indexes, the estimates of the coefficients are calculated by covariance structure analysis. From the coefficients and the observable indexes, the three evaluated values and the company evaluated value are calculated. With this, the relationship among the three strategies which are directly nonobservable abstract factors, i.e.

  • Publication number: 20070150510
    Abstract: An enterprise evaluation system and an enterprise evaluation program capable of evaluating the value of an enterprise by analyzing the search and development strategy or the intellectual property strategy of the enterprise. Among patent applications filed by a specified enterprise within a specified period, required registration period is calculated for individual applications by subtracting the date of application from the date of registration of a patent subjected to registration of setting, an average required registration period is calculated from the required registration periods thus calculated and delivered to a display means (372), a print means (e.g. a printer (32)) and a recording medium (377) or delivered to many communication apparatuses through a communication line. A user can recognize on which technical field an enterprise under inspection is placing emphasis or in which technical field the invention is positioned defensively, and can judge the attitude of the enterprise toward patent.

  • Publication number: 20070014790
    Abstract: To determine the biological role of ZHX1, found previously, which acts as a transcriptional repressor, the inventors conducted a search of ZHX1—interacting proteins using a yeast two-hybrid system. Molecular cloning and determination of the nucleotide sequence of the full-length cDNA encoding a novel protein revealed a novel protein with SEQ ID NO: 1. The protein (ZHX3), like ZHX1, contains two zinc-finger (Znf) motifs and five homeodomains (HDs) and has a transcriptional repressor activity.
