Abstract: Provided is a technology related to a horseshoe crab factor B variant, and also provided is means for performing endotoxin measurement with high sensitivity. A polypeptide having an amino acid sequence in which the amino acid residue at the 193-position in an amino acid sequence of a polypeptide of horseshoe crab factor B is substituted with a cysteine (Cys) residue, is produced. Endotoxin measurement can be carried out with high sensitivity by configuring a Limulus reagent by combining this polypeptide with horseshoe crab factor C.
Abstract: Provided are an imaging apparatus, an imaging method, and a program capable of accurately and simply controlling a movement sensitivity of an index displayed on a finder monitor to a sensitivity desired by a user by using a touch panel installed on a rear monitor.

Abstract: An information processing apparatus as an image forming apparatus includes an utterance period detecting section, a simple response/statement determining section, and an HDD. The utterance period detecting section detects utterance periods of utterances of each person from voice data. The simple response/statement determining section converts the voice data to a text, determines, when the utterance in the detected utterance period falling within a first period contains any predetermined keyword, that the utterance is a simple response, determines the utterance made for a second period longer than the first period to be a statement, and extracts, for each person, a frequent keyword appearing a predetermined number of times or more in the utterances. The HDD stores determination results of the simple response/statement determining section, the utterance periods for the simple responses, and the utterance periods for the statements, together with the frequent keyword.

Abstract: A source code analysis unit identifies dependency strengths of one or more functions included in a source code. An influence analysis unit identifies one or more transfer functions that will each move to a different subsystem due to refactoring and identifies a dependency strength to be influenced by the refactoring, based on the dependency strengths that have been identified by the source code analysis unit with respect to the one or more transfer functions. A scale calculation unit calculates the scale of the refactoring, based on the dependency strength to be influenced, which has been identified by the influence analysis unit.
Abstract: A key information sharing system includes a delivery device that delivers key information as first information for a control device equipped in an object and a user terminal that receives the first information delivered from the delivery device. The delivery device adds second information that allows the first information to be transferred between the user terminal and a third-party terminal without the delivery device, to the first information to be delivered to the user terminal. The user terminal transmits the first information to the third-party terminal in response to an input operation by a user, when the user terminal receives the first information to which the second information has been added.
