  • Patent number: 8200392
    Abstract: A vehicle steering control apparatus (10) is provided with: a steering force applying device (15, 30) for applying a steering force front wheels (5, 6); and a lateral force detecting device (42) for detecting a lateral force of each of the front wheels and rear wheels (7, 8), the steering force applying device applying, to the front wheels, a convergent steering force which steers the front wheels in a direction in which yaw oscillation converges, if a ratio of the lateral force (Fr) of the rear wheels to the lateral force (Ff) of the front wheels becomes a ratio of possibly causing the yaw oscillation in a vehicle (1).

  • Patent number: 6610502
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a novel endogenous compound 2-amino-3-[2-(&agr;-mannopyranosyl)indole-3-yl]propionic acid; to a method for testing a biological function by quantitating 2-amino-3-[2-(&agr;-mannopyranosyl)indole-3-yl]propionic acid in a collected biological sample and determining the biological function based on the quantitated values; to an antibody specifically reactive with 2-amino-3-[2-(&agr;-mannopyranosyl)indole-3-yl]propionic acid; to a hybridoma that produces the antibody; to a method for immunologically quantitating 2-amino-3-[2-(&agr;-mannopyranosyl)indole-3-yl]propionic acid in a sample by using the antibody; and to a process for producing a 2-amino-3-[2-(&agr;-mannopyranosyl)indole-3-yl]propionic acid derivative.

  • Patent number: 4325042
    Abstract: A thermo-magnetically operated switch having two different and predetermined lower and higher operating points on a temperature scale so that it may be maintained open below the lower operating point and above the higher operating point and be maintained closed between the two different operating points comprises two permanent magnets, and two kinds of temperature sensitive ferromagnetic members in proximity to a reed switch. The two permanent magnets are disposed over respective reeds of the reed switch in a similar polar direction and with an axial space therebetween. Two temperature sensitive ferromagnetic members having a higher Curie point are disposed at opposite outer sides of both permanent magnets or at opposite ends of the reed switch, and are in contact with respective permanent magnets.
