  • Publication number: 20210254079
    Abstract: The present invention provides mammalian cell expression vectors that impart to mammalian host cells an ability to produce high levels of foreign gene-derived proteins. A ubiquitously acting chromatin opening element (UCOE) is introduced into an expression vector that has a plasmid DNA integrated into a transcriptional hot spot on the chromosome of a dihydrofolate reductase gene-deficient host cell so that it allows for selection of strains that grow in hypoxanthine-thymidine (hereinafter denoted as HT)-free medium, whereby transformants will produce a protein of interest in increased amounts.

  • Patent number: 9319582
    Abstract: Herein describes, by example, a digital image device comprising a CCD image sensor, a setting dial, a controller, and an image processor. The CCD image sensor captures a subject image and outputs image information. The setting dial accepts an input operation and outputs an operation signal including one that corresponds to the direction of the dial. The controller sets an object region that will be the object of a specific image processing process, so that at least one of a region direction and a region range for setting the object region can be changed according to an operation signal corresponding to the operation direction of the interface component. The image processor performs diorama filtering on the object region on the basis of the region direction and the region range.
