Hydrogen and hydration in proteins and nucleic acids; Neutron diffraction from bio-macromolecules at JAERI

Niimura, Nobuo; Arai, Shigeki; Kurihara, Kazuo; Chatake, Toshiyuki*; Tanaka, Ichiro*; Bau, R.*

Hydrogen- and Hydration-Sensitive Structural Biology, p.17 - 35, 2005/00

At the JAERI, we have constructed several high-resolution neutron diffractometers dedicated to biological macromolecules (called BIX-type diffractometers), which use a monochromatized neutron beam and a neutron imaging plate detector. In this paper, we review several interesting results regarding hydrogen positions and hydration in proteins, obtained using the two BIX-type diffractometers in JAERI. The general subject of neutron protein crystallography has been reviewed by several authors, and several selected topics have been discussed.

Neutron image characteristics of imaging plates using SrBPO$$_{5}$$:Eu$$^{2+}$$ photostimulabe phosphors

Sakasai, Kaoru; Katagiri, Masaki; Nakamura, Tatsuya

JAERI-Research 2004-019, 33 Pages, 2004/12


As a new candidate for raw materials of a neutron imaging plate, characteristics of a SrBPO$$_{5}$$:Eu$$^{2+}$$ phosphor that has boron (B) in the base matrix as a neutron converter have been investigated. The phosphor has a strong merit that it generates photostimulated luminescence of 390 nm by illumination of red laser light after neutron irradiation. The emission and excitation wavelengths were the same as those of commercially available neutron imaging plate. Therefore, the authors have fabricated neutron imaging plates by painting the phosphor on Al plates. Neutron imaging experiments using the fabricated imaging plates were carried out with a commercially available image reader. A Li block was used as a camera subject in the experiments. As a result of the experiments, it was confirmed that the neutron image was clearly obtained, though the intensity of the image was not so high. The position resolution of 0.2 mm was obtained when the readout resolution of 50 $$mu$$m in the reader was used.

Application of invasion mathematical model in dosimetry for boron neutron capture therapy for malignant glioma

Yamamoto, Kazuyoshi; Kumada, Hiroaki; Nakai, Kei*; Endo, Kiyoshi*; Yamamoto, Tetsuya*; Matsumura, Akira*

Proceedings of 11th World Congress on Neutron Capture Therapy (ISNCT-11) (CD-ROM), 14 Pages, 2004/10

A dose distribution considered the tumor cell density distribution is required on the radiation therapy. We propose a novel method of determining target region considering the tumor cell concentration as a new function for the next generation Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) dosimetry system. It has not been able to sufficiently define the degree of microscopic diffuse invasion of the tumor cells peripheral to a tumor bulk in malignant glioma using current medical imaging. Referring to treatment protocol of BNCT, the target region surrounding the tumor bulk has been set as the region which expands at the optional distance with usual 2cm margin from the region enhanced on T1 weighted gadolinium Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). In this research, the cell concentration of the region boundary of the target was discussed by using tumor cell diffusion model in the sphere spatio-temporal system. The survival tumor cell density distribution after the BNCT irradiation was predicted by the two regions diffusion model for a virtual brain phantom.

Novel instrument system for discriminating secondary particles in high-spatial-resolution neutron detection

Yamagishi, Hideshi; Nakamura, Tatsuya; Soyama, Kazuhiko; Masaoka, Sei; Aizawa, Kazuya

Review of Scientific Instruments, 75(7), p.2340 - 2345, 2004/07

A new instrument system with the capability of secondary-particle discrimination (InSPaD) was studied for the development of two-dimensional neutron detectors (2D-ND) filled with helium-3 gas and with high spatial resolution. The InSPaD can discriminate between the tracks of a proton and a triton created in the nuclear reaction $$^{3}$$He(${it n}$,${it p}$)${it T}$ by simply setting the level of discriminators appropriately in each signal channel, and the system exhibits a high spatial resolution, high counting rate, low background, and stability. The simulations of the 2D-ND equipped with the InSPaD revealed spatial resolutions of 0.46 mm in full width at half maximum for a 10% mixture of C$$_{2}$$H$$_{6}$$ with helium-3 at 0.3 MPa. The results of neutron-detection experiments using a microstrip gas chamber, including the range of the secondary particles and the pulse-height distribution, agreed well with the simulated results, indicating the feasibility of the InSPaD.

Neutron diffractometer for biological macromolecule crystallography

Kurihara, Kazuo; Tanaka, Ichiro*; Niimura, Nobuo

Nippon Kessho Gakkai-Shi, 46(3), p.193 - 200, 2004/05

Neutron diffraction provides an experimental method of directly locating hydrogen atoms in proteins and nucleic acids, and the development of the neutron imaging plate (NIP) became a breakthrough event in neutron protein crystallography. A high-resolution neutron diffractometers dedicated to biological macromolecules (BIX-3, BIX-4) with the NIP have been constructed at Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute. The detailed structure of the diffractometer and the systematic procedure of the neutron diffraction experiment from the crystallization of a large single crystal to the data collection and the data processing, and the future prospect of the neutron diffractometry in proteins will be presented.

Neutron zooming detector using electronic zooming TV readout system

Soyama, Kazuhiko; Matsubayashi, Masahito; Masaoka, Sei; Nakamura, Tatsuya; Matsumura, Tatsuya*; Kinoshita, Katsuyuki*

JAERI-Research 2003-032, 22 Pages, 2004/03


The neutron zooming tube has been developed using electronic zooming TV readout system for an X-ray microscope. This system consists of the photocathode, the electro-magnetic coil assembly and the CCD TV camera etc.. The photocathode consists of transmission type CsI layer in combination with neutron converters such as Gd foil. The system position sensitive resolution of 20$$mu$$m has been obtained using neutron converter. We have found that it is determined from the distance between the CsI layer and the neutron converter, then the limiting resolution could be improved.

Development of a fast neutron radiography converter using wavelength-shifting fibers

Matsubayashi, Masahito; Hibiki, Takashi*; Mishima, Kaichiro*; Yoshii, Koji*; Okamoto, Koji*

A fluorescent converter for fast neutron radiography (FNR) comprising a scintillator and hydrogen-rich resin has been developed and applied to electronic imaging. The rate of the reaction between fast neutrons and the converter is increased by thickening the converter, but its opaqueness attenuates emitted light photons before they reach its surface. To improve the luminosity of a fluorescent converter for FNR, a novel type of converter was designed in which wavelength-shifting fibers were adopted to transport radiated light to the observation end face. The performance of the converter was compared with that of a polypropylene-based fluorescent converter in an experiment conducted at the fast-neutron-source reactor YAYOI in the University of Tokyo.

A SrBPO$$_{5}$$:Eu$$^{2+}$$ storage phosphor for neutron imaging

Sakasai, Kaoru; Katagiri, Masaki; To, Kentaro; Takahashi, Hiroyuki*; Nakazawa, Masaharu*; Kondo, Yasuhiro*

Applied Physics A, 74(Suppl.1), p.S1589 - S1591, 2002/12

 Times Cited Count:27 Percentile:28.68(Materials Science, Multidisciplinary)

A phosphor material such as SrBPO$$_{5}$$:Eu$$^{2+}$$ has been investigated for two-dimensional imaging for pulsed-neutron source. The authors found this phosphor itself shows photostimulated luminescence (PSL) by illumination of 635 nm laser light after neutron irradiation without adding any neutron sensitive materials such as Gd. The PSL intensity per neutron flux was proportional to E$$^{-0.5}$$, where E is neutron energy. The neutron sensitivity was increased by using enriched boron instead of natural boron. The S$$_{gamma}$$/S$$_{n}$$ ratio of this phosphor using enriched boron was better than that of a commercially available imaging plate, where S$$_{gamma}$$ and S$$_{n}$$ are gamma and neutron sensitivities, respectively.
