  • Publication number: 20220220166
    Abstract: In order to improve aggregation property of a PPR protein, the A6 amino acid of the 1st PPR motif from the N-terminus (M1) is made more hydrophilic. Further, the A9 amino acid of M1 is made to be a hydrophilic amino acid or glycine. The A6 amino acid is preferably asparagine or aspartic acid, and the A9 amino acid is preferably glutamine, glutamic acid, lysine, or glycine. Proteins containing such a PPR motif as M1 motif may have not only improved aggregation property, but also high binding power to a target nucleic acid.

  • Patent number: 11376964
    Abstract: A vehicle display device includes a display device, a reflecting mirror, an optical sensor configured to detect external light, and a controller configured to enable execution of a temperature lowering operation. The display device includes a light transmissive liquid crystal display unit disposed on an optical path of light emitted from a light source and a first optical member disposed between the liquid crystal display unit and the light source and configured to change an optical path of light that enters the first optical member from the light source and passes therethrough toward the liquid crystal display unit. The optical sensor is disposed on an optical path of the external light incident on the display device at a side opposite to the liquid crystal display unit across the first optical member. The first optical member includes a passage on an optical path through which the external light passes.
