  • Patent number: 10947585
    Abstract: Disclosed is a nucleic acid amplification method. The method comprises: performing a first nucleic acid amplification using a target nucleic acid contained in a sample as a template; and performing a second nucleic acid amplification using the amplification product produced in the first nucleic acid amplification step as a template. In the first nucleic acid amplification, a DNA polymerase that selectively amplifies a nucleic acid not comprising a uracil base is used to produce an amplification product that does not comprise a uracil base. In the second nucleic acid amplification, (i) dUTP and/or a primer comprising a uracil base, and (ii) a DNA polymerase capable of amplifying a nucleic acid comprising a uracil base are used to produce an amplification product that comprises a uracil base.

  • Patent number: 8940937
    Abstract: Disclosed is a novel method for the selective molecular conversion of raw material carbon nanotubes containing a mixture of metallic carbon nanotubes and semiconductive carbon nanotubes in a manner that is based on the electrical properties or diameter of the carbon nanotubes. The present invention causes a photoreaction of raw material carbon nanotubes containing a mixture of metallic carbon nanotubes and semiconductive carbon nanotubes with a disulfide or a sulfide of the following formula (I) or (II) (wherein R1 and R2 each independently represent a hydrocarbon group that may have a substituent) in an organic solvent that contains the raw material carbon nanotubes and the disulfide of the formula (I) or the sulfide of the formula (II), so as to selectively functionalize the metallic carbon nanotubes, or functionalize the carbon nanotubes diameter selectively.
