半減期4$$sim$$49秒の短寿命同位体を用いて、水銀(Hg), タリウム(Tl), 鉛(Pb)の単一原子レベルでのSiO$$_{2}$$及びAu表面への固体吸着挙動をオンライン気相実験により調べた。超重元素Cn, Nh, Flの吸着エンタルピー測定のためのモデル実験として実施した。短寿命同位体はドイツ重イオン研究所の反跳核分離装置TASCAを用いて生成・分離した。生成核はヘリウムガス中に捕集された後、SiO$$_{2}$$あるいはAuで表面を覆われたSi検出器で作製されたガスクロマトグラフィーカラムへと導入した。短寿命Tl及びPb同位体は室温においてSiO$$_{2}$$表面に吸着し、Si検出器で測定することに成功した。一方、HgはSiO$$_{2}$$表面には吸着せず、Au表面に吸着した。この結果より、本実験のセットアップを用いることで短寿命Hg, Tl, Pb同位体の吸着特性を調べることができると証明され、この手法がCn, Nh, Flの実験にも適用できることが確認された。

Low-lying neutron-hole states in $$^{131}$$Sn were populated via the $$^{132}$$Sn(d,t) reaction at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. The triton angular distributions were compared to DWBA calculations and revealed spectroscopic factors compatible with a single-hole nature of the states populated. The data permit to determine the spin-orbit splitting of the strongly bound $$d_{3/2}$$ and $$d_{5/2}$$ neutron orbits below the shell gap, which was compared to the splitting of the weakly bound 3$$p$$ and 2$$f$$ orbits above the gap. The comparison revealed a smaller energy splitting of the 3$$p$$ orbits. All splittings were reproduced using Woods-Saxon calculations, and the lower splitting of the 3$$p$$ orbits was explained to arise from the large radial extent of the wavefunction and small value of the amplitude at the surface. This result is important to understand at a fundamental level the spin-orbit interaction, and its effects on neutron-rich nuclei.

The new neutron-deficient nuclei $$^{240}$$Es and $$^{236}$$Bk were synthesised at the gas-filled recoil separator RITU. They were identified by their radioactive decay chains starting from $$^{240}$$Es produced in the fusion-evaporation reaction $$^{209}$$Bi($$^{34}$$S,3n)$$^{240}$$Es. Half-lives of 6(2)s and 22$$^{+13}_{-6}$$s were obtained for $$^{240}$$Es and $$^{236}$$Bk, respectively. Two groups of $$alpha$$ particles with energies $$E_{alpha}$$=8.19(3) MeV and 8.09(3) MeV were unambiguously assigned to $$^{240}$$Es. Electron-capture delayed fission branches with probabilities of 0.16(6) and 0.04(2) were measured for $$^{240}$$Es and $$^{236}$$Bk, respectively. These new data show a continuation of the exponential increase of ECDF probabilities in more neutron-deficient isotopes.

Beta-delayed proton emission from $$^{20}$$Mg has been measured at ISOLDE, CERN, with the ISOLDE Decay Station setup including both charged-particle and $$gamma$$-ray detection capabilities. A total of 27 delayed proton branches were measured including seven so far unobserved. An updated decay scheme, including three new resonances above the proton separation energy in $$^{20}$$Na and more precise resonance energies, is presented. Beta-decay feeding to two resonances above the Isobaric Analogue State in $$^{20}$$Na is observed. This may allow studies of the 4032.9(2.4) keV resonance in $$^{19}$$Ne through the beta decay of $$^{20}$$Mg, which is important for the astrophysically relevant reaction $$^{15}$$O($$alpha$$,$$gamma$$)$$^{19}$$Ne. Beta-delayed protons were used to obtain a more precise value for the half-life of $$^{20}$$Mg, 91.4(1.0) ms.

$$^{48}$$Ca + $$^{243}$$Am反応による115番元素合成実験で観測された$$alpha$$崩壊連鎖について、最近我々が報告したドイツGSIで測定したデータと過去に報告されたロシアDubna及び米国LBNLで測定されたデータのすべてを使い、その起源を調査した。それらのデータの中に、反跳核-$$alpha$$-($$alpha$$)-核分裂タイプの短い崩壊連鎖が14事象観測されており、そのうちのいくつかは中性子が2個放出されてできる$$^{289}$$Mc起源であるとこれまで解釈されてきた。一方、今回我々は、これらの短い崩壊連鎖のほとんどが、中性子が3個放出されてできる$$^{288}$$Mc起源であり、崩壊連鎖の途中でEC崩壊して核分裂したものであろうと再同定した。

TOPASとは、陽子線治療計画に幅広く利用されているソフトウェアである。本研究の目的は、TOPASに陽子の生物学的効果比(RBE)を計算する機能を追加することである。その目的のため、8つの生物物理モデルをTOPASに組み込んだ。それらモデルのうち4つは、RBEの指標となる物理学的なパラメータとしてLETを用い、残りの4つは、それぞれDNAダメージ数、平均z値, y値,飛跡構造を用いる。その中で、y値を指標としたモデルには、原子力機構が開発したマイクロドジメトリ機能が使われた。導入した8つのモデルの精度は、実験的に求めた陽子のRBEと比較することにより検証した。本研究は、陽子線治療を臨床診療へと近づけるための治療計画の最適化に重要な成果である。

2013年8月に採取した葉状地衣類10種類の放射性セシウム濃度($$^{137}$$Cs)の範囲は1.7-35kBq/kgであった。2つの優占種、Dirinaria applanataとPhyscia orientalisにおいて、それらの$$^{137}$$Cs濃度と試料採取地点の空間線量率との関係を調べた。P. orientalisの$$^{137}$$Cs濃度は福島原子力発電所事故から約1年後に測定したもので、試料採取地点の空間線量率との間に良好な相関関係がみられた(r$$^{2}$$=0.80)。さらに、事故から2年経過した試料採取地点の空間線量率との間にも相関関係がみられた(r$$^{2}$$=0.65)ことから、時間経過後も継続して大気中の放射性降下物レベルを反映するバイオモニターとしての有用性を示すといえる。対照的に、Dirinaria applanataの場合は、それらの試料採取地点の空間線量率との相関関係はみられなかった。

ドイツ重イオン研究所のガス充填型反跳核分離装置TASCAを用いて$$^{48}$$Ca + $$^{249}$$Bk核融合反応で生成する原子番号117の超重元素の観測に成功した。この結果は、過去にロシアのフレーロフ研究所が報告した117番新元素の結果を再確認するもので、117番元素の合成及び発見を確かなものとする成果である。一方、117番元素からの$$alpha$$崩壊連鎖の最後の原子核は、過去に報告された$$^{270}$$Dbではなく、未知核種$$^{266}$$Lrであり、$$^{270}$$Dbは非常に長い寿命を持つ$$alpha$$崩壊核種であることを明らかにした。

A high-resolution X-ray and $$alpha$$-ray coincidence spectroscopy experiment was conducted at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum f$"u$r Schwerionenforschung. Thirty correlated decay chains were detected following the fusion-evaporation reaction $$^{48}$$Ca + $$^{243}$$Am. The observations are consistent with previous assignments of similar decay chains to originate from element Z = 115. For the first time, precise spectroscopy allows the derivation of excitation schemes of isotopes along the decay chains starting with elements Z $$>$$ 112. Comprehensive Monte-Carlo simulations accompany the data analysis. Nuclear structure models provide a first level interpretation.

Measurements of beta-delayed $$gamma$$-ray spectra following 14-MeV neutron-induced fissions of $$^{232}$$Th, $$^{238}$$U, and $$^{237}$$Np were conducted at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's 88-Inch Cyclotron. Spectra were collected for times ranging from 1 minute to 14 hours after irradiation. Intensity ratios of $$gamma$$-ray lines were extracted from the data that allow identification of the fissioning isotope.

Recent discoveries of novel electronic states, including relatively high-temperature superconductivity, in the actinides point to exciting prospects for future discoveries at the bottom of the periodic table. A key ingredient in all of the successes discussed here is the role of high-quality synthesis in enabling advances. Results on PuCoGa$$_5$$, NpPd$$_5$$Al$$_2$$, and single crystal uranium are discussed.

We have developed new technologies for an advanced Thomson scattering diagnostics to meet various requirements for understanding physical phenomena in fusion plasmas. These technologies for the advanced Thomson scattering diagnostics may contribute future Thomson scattering diagnostics. For example, a polarization interferometer is applicable for T$$_{e}$$ measurement with wide range and imaging measurement. A multipass Thomson scattering and high average power laser employing SBS-PCM may improve the S/N ratio and repetition rate for the measurement, and allows measurement with high spatial resolution. An SBS-PC is a promising technology for LIDAR to generate short laser pulse. A Cr, Nd:YAG will be used for high-efficiency and high average power laser system. Fully relativistic formulae will contribute to the spectrum analysis with wide Te range. A guideline to optimize wavelength channels will be useful for a design of spectrometer.

Path of nascent polypeptide in exit tunnel revealed by molecular dynamics simulation of ribosome

Biophysical Journal, 95(12), p.5962 - 5973, 2008/12

Molecular dynamics simulations were performed on ${it Thermus thermophilus }$ 70S ribosome with and without the nascent polypeptide inside the exit tunnel. Modeling of the polypeptide in the tunnel revealed two possible paths: one over Arg$$^{92}$$ of L22 and one under (from the viewpoint of 50S on top of 30S). A strong interaction between L4 and Arg$$^{92}$$ was observed without the polypeptide and when it passed over Arg$$^{92}$$. However, when the polypeptide passed under, Arg$$^{92}$$ repositioned to interact with Ade$$^{2059}$$ of 23S rRNA. Using steered molecular dynamics the polypeptide could be pulled through the L4-L22 constriction when situated under Arg$$^{92}$$, but did not move when over. These results suggest that the tunnel is closed by the Arg$$^{92}$$-L4 interaction before elongation of the polypeptide and the tunnel leads the entering polypeptide from the peptidyl transferase center to the passage under Arg$$^{92}$$, causing Arg$$^{92}$$ to switch to an open position. It is possible, therefore, that Arg$$^{92}$$ plays the role of a gate, opening and closing the tunnel at L4-L22. There is controversy over whether the tunnel is dynamics or rigid. At least within the time-scale of our simulations conformational analysis showed that global motions mainly involve relative movement of the 50S and 30S subunits and appear not to affect the conformation of the tunnel.


A Method for the analysis of domain movements in large biomolecular complexes

Poornam, G. P.*; 松本 淳; 石田 恒; Hayward, S.*

Proteins: Structure, Function, and Bioinformatics, 76(1), p.201 - 212, 2008/12

A new method for the analysis of domain movements in large, multichain, biomolecular complexes is presented. The method is applicable to any molecule for which two atomic structures are available that represent a conformational change indicating a possible domain movement. The method is blind to atomic bonding and atom type and can, therefore, be applied to biomolecular complexes containing different constituent molecules such as protein, RNA, or DNA. Here, we report on the application of the method to biomolecules covering a considerable size range: hemoglobin, liver alcohol dehydrogenase, S-Adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase, aspartate transcarbamylase, and the 70S ribosome. The results provide a depiction of the conformational change within each molecule that is easily understood, giving a perspective that is expected to lead to new insights.
