Data from: Creation of photocyclic vertebrate rhodopsin by single amino acid substitution

Takahiro Yamashita, Kazumi Sakai, Yoshinori Shichida & Yasushi Imamoto
Opsins are universal photoreceptive proteins in animals and can be classified into three types based on their photoreaction properties. Upon light irradiation, vertebrate rhodopsin forms a metastable active state, which cannot revert back to the original dark state via either photoreaction or thermal reaction. By contrast, after photoreception, most opsins form a stable active state which can photo-convert back to the dark state. Moreover, we recently found a novel type of opsins whose activity is...

Raw data for the samples collected from Hole B of the ICDP DSeis project at the Moab Khotsong Gold Mine in South Africa

Takeshi Miyamoto, Tetsuro Hirono, Yuki Yokoyama, Shunya Kaneki, Yuhji Yamamoto, Tsuyoshi Ishikawa, Akira Tsuchiyama, Ikuo Katayama, Yasuo Yabe, Martin Ziegler, Raymond Durrheim & Hiroshi Ogasawara
This data set is corresponding to the Miyamoto, T. et al. “Characteristics of Seismogenic Fault Rock Related to the 2014 Orkney Earthquake (M5.5) Beneath the Moab Khotsong Gold Mine, South Africa” Geophysical Research Letters, 2022. This data set shows physical property, magnetic susceptibility, mineral assemblage, and element composition of all Hole B subsamples, and frictional properties of 5 Hole B subsamples.

Data from: Upper rate limits for one-to-one auditory-motor coordination involving whole-body oscillation: A study of street dancers and non-dancers

Akito Miura, Shinya Fujii, Masahiro Okano, Kazutoshi Kudo & Kimitaka Nakazawa
The capacity for auditory-motor coordination (AMC) is shared by several species, among which humans are most flexible in coordinating with tempo changes. We investigated how humans lose this tempo flexibility at their upper rate limit, and the effect of skill level on this phenomenon. Seven skilled street dancers, including a world champion, and ten non-dancers were instructed to bend their knees according to a metronome beat in a standing position at eight constant beat frequencies...

A practical method for estimating coupling functions in complex dynamical systems

Isao Tokuda, Zoran Levnajic & Kazuyoshi Ishimura
A foremost challenge in modern network science is the inverse problem of reconstruction (inference) of coupling equations and network topology from the measurements of the network’s dynamics. Of particular interest are the methods that can operate on real (empirical) data without interfering with the system. One of such earlier attempts (Tokuda et al. 2007 Phys. Rev. Lett. 99, 064101) was a method suited for general limit-cycle oscillators, yielding both oscillators’ natural frequencies and coupling functions...

Data from: Grasshopper mice employ distinct vocal production mechanisms in different social contexts

Bret Pasch, Isao T. Tokuda & Tobias Riede
Functional changes in vocal organ morphology and motor control facilitate the evolution of acoustic signal diversity. Although many rodents produce vocalizations in a variety of social contexts, few studies have explored the underlying production mechanisms. Here, we describe mechanisms of audible and ultrasonic vocalizations (USVs) produced by grasshopper mice (genus Onychomys). Grasshopper mice are predatory rodents of the desert that produce both loud, long-distance advertisement calls and USVs in close-distance mating contexts. Using live-animal recording...

Data from: Characterization of rhizome transcriptome and identification of a rhizomatous ER body in the clonal plant Cardamine leucantha

Kiwako S. Araki, Atsushi J. Nagano, Ryohei Thomas Nakano, Tatsuya Kitazume, Katsushi Yamaguchi, Ikuko Hara-Nishimura, Shuji Shigenobu & Hiroshi Kudoh
The rhizome is a plant organ that develops from a shoot apical meristem but penetrates into belowground environments. To characterize the gene expression profile of rhizomes, we compared the rhizome transcriptome with those of the leaves, shoots and roots of a rhizomatous Brassicaceae plant, Cardamine leucantha. Overall, rhizome transcriptomes were characterized by the absence of genes that show rhizome-specific expression and expression profiles intermediate between those of shoots and roots. Our results suggest that both...
