  • Publication number: 20200285452
    Abstract: An extent of decrease in analysis accuracy caused by splitting a source code can be reduced. An influence identifying unit identifies, for each of two functions included in a source code as a target, influence degrees exerted over analysis of the source code when the two target functions are each split into separate split codes, as analysis influence degrees between the two target functions, from an information amount passed between the two target functions. A splitting unit splits the source code into a plurality of split codes such that a sum of the analysis influence degrees between the functions each being split into the separate split codes decreases.

  • Publication number: 20200008404
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to produce a mammalian organ having a complicated cellular composition composed of multiple kinds of cells, such as kidney, pancreas, thymus and hair, in the living body of a non-human animal. The inventors of the present invention applied the chimeric animal assay described above, to a novel solid organ production method. More specifically, the inventors has shown that a model mouse which is deficient of kidney, pancreas, thymus or hair due to the dysfunction of the metanephric mesenchyme that is differentiated into most of an adult kidney, is rescued by blastocyst complementation by the chimeric animal assay, and whereby a kidney, a pancreas, thymus or hair can be newly produced.

  • Publication number: 20190282602
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a method which constantly enables organ regeneration for the purpose of achieving organ regeneration with higher efficiency. It has been discovered that, in a blastocyst complementation method, a next generation is born when a deficiency in an organ, such as pancreas and kidney, is complemented by injection of ES cells into a generated blastocyst, and further discovered that a transgenic animal having a pancreas or a kidney thus complemented can transmit the phenotype to the next generation as a founder. This discovery has revealed that organ regeneration can be accomplished by using such a founder. Thus, the present invention achieved the above-described object.

  • Publication number: 20190133093
    Abstract: It is revealed that an organ such as pancreas can be regenerated by utilizing a fact that the deficiency of an organ is complemented by injecting an induced pluripotent stem cell (iPS cell) into a developed blastocyst in a blastocyst complementation method. Thus, the present invention has solved the above-described object. This provides a method for producing a target organ, using an iPS cell, in a living body of a non-human mammal having an abnormality associated with a lack of development of the target organ in a development stage, the target organ produced being derived from a different individual mammal that is an individual different from the non-human mammal.

  • Patent number: 10240913
    Abstract: The invention makes it possible to measure an object with a three dimensional shape that is made of various materials with a high degree of precision and at high-speed, without requiring a vast amount advance of preparation. A measuring unit detects internal scattering light measuring areas in a captured image, and obtains profiles of internal scattering light components in the areas. An estimating unit estimates the internal scattering light components in three-dimensional coordinate measuring areas based on the profiles of the internal scattering light components in the internal scattering light measuring areas. A reducing unit reduces the internal scattering light components in the three-dimensional coordinate measuring areas to generate a direct-reflected light component image. Then, a calculating unit calculates three-dimensional coordinates on measuring lines based on the direct-reflected light component image.
