UNLABELLED Background- Combined hyperlipidemia is a common disorder characterized by a highly atherogenic lipoprotein profile and increased risk of coronary heart disease. The etiology of the lipid abnormalities (increased serum cholesterol and triglyceride or either lipid alone) is unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS We assembled 2 large cohorts of families(More)
Ocean acidification due to rising atmospheric CO2 is expected to affect the physiology of important calcifying marine organisms, but the nature and magnitude of change is yet to be established. In coccolithophores, different species and strains display varying calcification responses to ocean acidification, but the underlying biochemical properties remain(More)
Triglycerides and cholesterol are essential for life in most organisms. Triglycerides serve as the principal energy storage depot and, where vascular systems exist, as a means of energy transport. Cholesterol is essential for the functional integrity of all cellular membrane systems. The endoplasmic reticulum is the site of secretory lipoprotein production(More)
This paper considers the implementation of a programme of behavioural safety within the nuclear industry. Its purpose is to describe how employees within reactor plants view behavioural approaches to safety management. In particular it addresses the perceived strengths and weaknesses of such approaches to safety and identifies both current and future(More)
