Keio University

Kyoto University

Topic:
State-of-the-art integrated imaging system allows scientists to map brain cells responsible for memory
Researcher:
Takuma Sugi, Assistant Professor, Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS)
Read from here:

Scientists from Kyoto University’s Institute for Integrated Cell-Material Sciences (iCeMS) in Japan have developed an advanced imaging system to identify cells responsible for storing memory within a tiny worm. Their study, published in the journal…

Kyushu University

Topic:
Sterylglucoside Catabolism in Cryptococcus neoformans with Endoglycoceramidase-related Protein 2 (EGCrP2), the First Steryl-β-glucosidase Identified in Fungi
Researcher:
Makoto Ito, Professor, Department of Bioscience and Biotechnology/ Faculty of Agriculture
Read from here:

Cryptococcosis is an infectious disease caused by pathogenic fungi, such as Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii. The ceramide structure (methyl-d18:2/h18:0) of C. neoformans glucosylceramide(GlcCer) is characteristic…

Ritsumeikan University

Topic:
Environment-Friendly Photoactive Materials Based on Naturally Occurring Tetrapyrroles
Researcher:
Hitoshi Tamiaki, Professor, College of Pharmaceutical Sciences
Read from here:

Although a great variety of microorganisms exist, only limited species are utilized in industry. The diverse and unique metabolites, enzymes, and proteins produced by microorganisms exhibit interesting bioactivities. Our mission is to elucidate…

The University of Tokyo

Read from here:

The University of Tokyo’s Kavli Institute for the Physics and Mathematics of the Universe (Kavli IPMU) aims to answer the fundamental questions about the universe: where did it…

University of Tsukuba

Topic:
Collaboration between mutations in a cytosine modifier and a GTPase gene in a blood cancer
Researcher:
Shigeru Chiba, Faculty of Medicine
Read from here:

TET1, TET2, and TET3 are dioxygenases that convert methylcytosine (mC) to hydroxymethylcytosine (hmC) in the genome, and believed to be fundamental epigenetic regulators. Among the TET genes, TET2 is frequently mutated in a variety of blood…
