  • Publication number: 20130183759
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method of improving the efficiency of establishment of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells by inhibiting p38 function in the step of somatic cell nuclear reprogramming. The p38 function can be inhibited by bringing an inhibitor selected from the group consisting of (1) a chemical inhibitor of p38 (2) a dominant negative mutant of p38 or a nucleic acid that encodes the same, (3) a nucleic acid selected from the group consisting of siRNAs and shRNAs targeted to p38 and DNAs that encode the same and (4) an inhibitor of p38 pathway into contact with a somatic cell and the like.

  • Patent number: 8415762
    Abstract: The external base electrode has a two-layered structure where a p-type polysilicon film doped with a medium concentration of boron is laminated on a p-type polysilicon film doped with a high concentration of boron. Therefore, since the p-type polysilicon film doped with a high concentration of boron is in contact with an intrinsic base layer at a junction portion between the external base electrode and the intrinsic base layer, the resistance of the junction portion can be reduced. In addition, since the resistance of the external base electrode becomes a parallel resistance of the two layers of the p-type polysilicon films, the resistance of the p-type polysilicon film whose boron concentration is relatively lower is dominant.

  • Publication number: 20080183482
    Abstract: The present invention provides a logistic PKI service system that improves reliability and security of its distribution portion. An article displayed on a shop terminal is purchased from a user's mobile terminal via a network. Then, a shop terminal receives distribution label data from a PKI. The user's mobile terminal receives authentication information transmitted by the PKI. The shop terminal generates a distribution label on the basis of the distribution label data from the PKI. Then, the shop terminal attaches the distribution label to the article and then requests a distributor to deliver the article. After the distributor delivers the article to a user, the user's mobile terminal reads information from the distribution label attached to the article. The user's mobile terminal then carries out information on the basis of the information from the distribution label and the authentication information from the PKI.
