  • Patent number: 10788788
    Abstract: A driving-force transmission member includes a coupling portion that includes a driving-force transmission surface and that transmits a driving force to a cartridge coupling, a first helical gear portion that engages with a driven gear of a cartridge to transmit the driving force, and a second helical gear portion that engages with a drive gear to receive the driving force. The portions rotate integrally with each other when the driving-force transmission member rotates about the axis of rotation. The driving-force transmission surface is shaped with a twist in the same direction as the driving-force transmission member. Helical teeth of the first helical gear portion are shaped with a twist in the same direction as the driving-force transmission surface. Helical teeth of the second helical gear portion are shaped with a twist in a direction opposite to the twist direction of the helical teeth of the first helical gear portion.

  • Patent number: 10787691
    Abstract: A method for producing an L-amino acid such as L-glutamic acid is provided. An L-amino acid is produced by culturing in a medium a bacterium having an L-amino acid-producing ability, which has been modified so that the activity of a c1795 protein is reduced or the activity of a protein of which the expression is repressed by a c1795 protein is increased, and collecting the L-amino acid from the medium or cells of the bacterium.

  • Patent number: 10703207
    Abstract: In an outboard motor, a controller controls an electric motor. An output outputs a predetermined notification information in response to a notification command signal output from the controller. When the controller receives a shut-off signal indicating that a semiconductor fuse is off, the controller outputs the notification command signal and causes the output to output notification information. When the controller receives a recovery operation signal indicating a predetermined operation performed by a user from an operator in a state where the semiconductor fuse has turned off, the controller outputs a recovery command signal to the semiconductor fuse.

  • Publication number: 20200191882
    Abstract: In multiple magnetic sensors, for a correlation function between a magnetic field applied from a magnet and a value of the magnetic field detected by the magnetic sensor at a first temperature, the value detected by the magnetic sensor when the magnetic field applied from the magnet is 0 is set to be a first offset value. For a correlation function between a magnetic field applied from the magnet and a value of the magnetic field detected by the magnetic sensor at a second temperature, the value detected by the magnetic sensor when the magnetic field applied from the magnet is 0 is set to be a second offset value. The second temperature is higher than the first temperature. A values of applied magnetic fields detected by first and second magnetic sensors are opposite in polarity.
