Development of control method for indoor lighting environment to maintain comfortable and healthy life rhythm
Project Year: Apr 2016 - Mar 2018
Light acts on the human circadian clock, and has a great influence not only on sleep/awake rhythms but also on maintaining homeostasis throughout the body. Light during the nighttime causes an undesired phase shift internal circadian clock and at ...
Molecular machinery of lunar-synchronous spawning in the brain of a tropical fish
Project Year: Apr 2016 - Mar 2018
Goldlined spinefoot, Siganus guttatus, inhabits tropical and subtropical waters. This fish exhibit lunar-synchronous spawning which is observed around the first quarter moon. In this study, we identified three Cry, two Per, two Clock, and two Bmal...
Development of a novel protein purification/regulation methodology by using a temperature-sensitive monoclonal antibody.
Project Year: Apr 2014 - Mar 2016
We recently developed a monoclonal antibody that shows strong temperature dependence in the binding to the epitope peptide, a carboxyl-terminal sequence of chicken CRY4.In this study, we tested the possibility to use this epitope peptide as a tag ...
Control of protein localization and activity using photoreceptors
Project Year: Apr 2012 - Mar 2014
We have developed a system to control the light-swichable gene expression by using photoreceptive molecules. In order to polish this system toward application as a novel biological tool, we further characterize CRY photoreception and interaction ...
Physiological studies on the transduction system of tidal stimuli in the brain of teleost fish
Project Year: Apr 2011 - Mar 2015
Periodical change in hydrostatic pressure (tidal cycle) is one of potent environmental factors in aquatic environments. It remains unknown how tidal spawners utilize tidal cycle for synchronizing reproductive events. The present study aimed to cla...
