  • Publication number: 20190219161
    Abstract: The motor vehicle is configured to recognize a shift position in response to the user's shift operation of a shift lever and to control a driving system, based on the shift position and the user's accelerator operation, brake operation and steering operation. On occurrence of a predetermined abnormality that causes a failure in recognizing the shift position, the motor vehicle sets an abnormality-time shift position based on vehicle peripheral information and notifies the abnormality-time shift position. When a moving direction is set by a moving direction setting unit that is provided separately from the shift lever and that allows the user to set the moving direction, the motor vehicle resets the abnormality-time shift position based on the moving direction, and controls the driving system, based on the abnormality-time shift position, the brake operation and the steering operation.

  • Publication number: 20090263885
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a process for producing trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline, which is useful as a raw material for medicines or as an additive to foods. In the process, L-proline is converted into trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline in the presence of an enzyme source which is derived from a microorganism belonging to the genus Dactylosporangium, Amycolatopsis or Streptomyces and which catalyzes the hydroxylation of L-proline into trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline, a divalent iron ion and 2-ketoglutaric acid, in an aqueous medium, and the produced trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline is collected from the aqueous medium. In addition, the present invention is directed to a process for producing trans-4-hydroxy-L-proline, wherein the L-proline biosynthesis activity of the host cell of the transformant is reinforced.
