A calcium-dependent alpha-1,2-mannosidase involved in the processing of asparagine-linked oligosaccharides was purified to homogeneity from rabbit liver microsomes. N-terminal amino acid analysis was consistent with the presence of a homogeneous protein. Sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis, under both reducing and nonreducing(More)
Cells are frequently challenged by DNA double-strand breaks (DSB) that threaten their normal function and survival. In mammalian cells, the repair of DSBs is predominantly mediated by the DNA-dependent protein kinase (DNA-PK) complex. We unexpectedly found that the corepressor silencing mediator for retinoid and thyroid hormone receptor (SMRT) associates(More)
What are the object properties that serve as a basis for the musical instrument classification system, and how do general and specific experience affect knowledge of these properties? In the first study, the multimodal quality of properties underlying children's and adults' perception was investigated. Subjects listened to solos and identified instruments(More)
Children's perception of scale and contour in melodies was investigated in five studies. Experimental tasks included judging transposed renditions of melodies (Studies 1 and 3), discriminating between transposed renditions of a melody (Study 2), judging contour-preserving transformations of melodies (Study 4), and judging similarity to a familiar target(More)

It discusses the utility of cognitive therapeutic strategies to the model of crisis theory and initial crisis assessment currently used by the Community Assessment & Treatment Team of(More)
As part of a larger study into the use of seclusion we set out to examine some of the antecedents that led to patients being secluded in one locked psychiatric ward. Behavioural mapping was used to chart the location of incidents that resulted in seclusion. Incidents were observed in several ward areas but most of these occurred in the day room and the(More)
AIM To enhance the understanding of the skills and attitudes of mental health nurses working in the Australian Mental Health Nurse Incentive Program. BACKGROUND The Mental Health Nurse Incentive Program places qualified mental health nurses alongside community-based general practitioners, private psychiatric practices and other appropriate organisations(More)
Semi-interpenetrating polymer networks (semi-IPNs) containing poly(ethylene glycol)-diacrylate (PEGdA) and modified gelatin were prepared with 2,2-dimethoxy-2-phenylacetophenone (DMPA) as a photoinitiator. The effect of (i) initiator and PEGdA concentration, and (ii) weight ratio and type of modified gelatin on the conversion of PEGdA functional end groups(More)
This paper raises issues about the process and conduct of clinical relationships with people diagnosed as mentally ill who live in therapeutic communities. This clinical work is of particular importance in the late 1990s due to the changing socio-cultural climate of interaction with people living with mental illness. This climate has a focus of care on(More)
It is now acknowledged that a substantial proportion of the Australian population will experience a mental health condition at some time during their lives. Only a small proportion will access care and treatment for these conditions, and those who do are more likely to access general medical practitioners than specialist mental health providers. The Mental(More)
