  • Publication number: 20200248177
    Abstract: A nucleic acid medicine for managing a disease or disorder related to unwanted gene expression. A technique for efficiently regulating gene expression in a cell using a relatively short oligonucleotide, by establishing a method for designing a nucleic acid medicine, that includes performing structural analysis based on sequence information of a target RNA sequence as an object for gene expression regulation, calculating the probability of existence of each structure from the results of the structural analysis and the energy of each structure, and calculating the existence probability in unified fashion of an endogenous stem-loop substructure, thereby specifying a more favorable endogenous stem-loop substructure. This technique can theoretically be applied to regulation expression of any gene, and is useful for treatment or prevention of various diseases and disorders.

  • Publication number: 20200002658
    Abstract: An alcoholic beverage containing ultrafine bubbles of hydrogen with an antioxidative function is provided that is produced by a reductive fermentation technique of alcohol and contains only a small amount of acetaldehyde. A method and an apparatus of oxidative-reductive fermentation of varieties of alcoholic beverages are provided based on facilitation of proliferation of microorganisms under an oxidative condition and a reductive fermentation technique. The reductive fermentation technique suppresses oxidative degradation of generated pyruvic acid, activate alcohol dehydrogenase, and facilitates production of alcohol from acetaldehyde which is an intermediate product, and a gas exchanging function of the ultrafine bubbles of hydrogen decreases acetaldehyde that remains in a period of alcohol fermentation. The technique facilitates fermentation, increases alcohol yield, decreases acetaldehyde content, and enhances fresh savor, mellow taste and an antioxidative function of an alcoholic beverage.

  • Patent number: 10466646
    Abstract: A photosensitive drum is rotatable about a first axis extending in a particular direction. A frame rotatably supports the photosensitive drum. A developing roller is rotatable according to driving force about a second axis extending in the particular direction. A surface of the developing roller contacts a surface of the photosensitive drum through toner. A resistance generating member generates a resistance torque TQ1 serving as resistance between the frame and photosensitive drum in a case where the photosensitive drum rotates relative to the frame. In a case where the developing roller rotates according to the driving force in a state where the surface of the developing roller contacts the surface of the photosensitive drum through toner, the resistance torque TQ1 is smaller than a torque TQ2 that causes the photosensitive drum to rotate due to friction between the surface of the developing roller and the surface of the photosensitive drum.
