  • Publication number: 20210163934
    Abstract: The object of the present invention is to provide a nucleic acid agent that can be efficiently delivered to the nervous system, particularly the central nervous system to which the BBB mechanism prevents drug delivery, and can produce an antisense effect on a target transcriptional product at the delivered site, and a composition comprising the same. Provided is a double-stranded nucleic acid complex formed by annealing a first nucleic acid strand capable of hybridizing to part of a target transcriptional product, and has an antisense effect on the target transcriptional product, to a second nucleic acid strand comprising a base sequence complementary to the first nucleic acid strand, and is bound to tocopherol or an analog thereof, cholesterol or an analog thereof, or a substituted or unsubstituted C1-30 alkyl group, a substituted or unsubstituted C2-30 alkenyl group, or a substituted or unsubstituted C1-30 alkoxy group.

  • Publication number: 20210088141
    Abstract: A structure for mounting a gasket on a block includes a block with a fluid channel and an annular gasket surrounding an opening of the fluid channel. The block has an annular inner wall and an annular outer wall. The annular inner wall is made of resin and located radially outside the opening of the fluid channel. The annular outer wall is made of resin and located radially outside the annular inner wall. The annular inner wall and the annular outer wall allow an axial side of the gasket to be press-fitted therebetween and are elastically deformable in their radial directions.

  • Patent number: 10948083
    Abstract: A structure allowing a gasket to be mounted on a fluid device is provided. The gasket includes an annular attaching portion that has a first slope at an axial end. The fluid device includes an annular attached portion with a second slope that contacts the first slope. The first slope at least partially includes a contact area that contacts the second slope to seal a gap between the first slope and the second slope. The contact area has an annular bulge protruding toward the second slope in contrast to other portions of the first slope so that the bulge is the earliest contact portion with the second slope when the contact area is brought into contact with the second slope.

  • Patent number: 10825583
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a coaxial cable, and particularly to a small-diameter coaxial cable for use in frequency bands of 100 MHz or more. The present invention addresses the problem of providing a coaxial cable which has excellent flexibility, a small outer diameter, and excellent shielding characteristics. The problem is solved by a coaxial cable having an outer conductor which is formed by mixing and laterally winding strands in the same direction, the strands having an outer diameter difference of not less than 10% between a large-diameter strand having a maximum outer diameter and a small-diameter strand having a minimum outer diameter.

  • Patent number: 10790764
    Abstract: A power conversion device includes an MMC-type power conversion circuit and a central controller. The central controller limits an active power command value and a reactive power command value to a value corresponding to an active power limit value and a value corresponding to a reactive power limit value, respectively, and controls an operation of the power conversion circuit according to the limited active power command value and the limited reactive power command value. The central controller includes: an index value calculation unit configured to calculate an index value that shows an extent of a variation among voltages of energy storage devices included in a plurality of converter cells; and a limiter controller configured to change the active power limit value to a value smaller than the active power limit value when the index value exceeds a threshold value.

  • Publication number: 20190390772
    Abstract: A gasket includes a first slope at a first axial end. The fluid device includes a second slope that contacts the first slope. The first slope and the second slope have different gradients. The first slope allows at least the first axial end to be deformed along the second slope. The first slope contacts the second slope with a gradient that varies depending on a gradient of the second slope to seal a gap between the first slope and the second slope.
