This paper analyzes six spectrum auctions conducted by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from July 1994 to May 1996. These auctions were simultaneous multiple-round auctions in which collections of licenses were auctioned simultaneously. This auction form proved remarkably successful. Similar items sold for similar prices and bidders successfully(More)
The involvement of chemokines in inflammation is well established, but their functional role in disease progression, and particularly in the development of fibrosis, is not yet understood. To investigate the functional role that the chemokines monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) and RANTES play in inflammation and the progression to fibrosis during(More)

How s h o uld a monopolist price a durable good or a new technology that is subject to network externalities? In particular, should the monopolist set a low \ i ntroductory price" to attract a \critical m a ss" of adopters? In this paper, we p r o vide intuition as to when and why introductory pricing might occur in the presence of network externali-ties.(More)
Nephrin is an Ig-like transmembrane protein. It is a major component of the podocyte slit diaphragm and is essential for maintaining normal glomerular permeability. CD2-associated protein (CD2AP) is also necessary for normal glomerular permeability and is a putative nephrin adapter molecule. Here, we document that nephrin and CD2AP are linked to the actin(More)
Combinatorial auctions are desirable as they enable bidders to express the synergistic values of a group of assets and thus may lead to better allocations. Compared to other auctions, they keep bidders from being exposed to risks (of receiving only parts of combinations that would be valuable to them) or from being overly cautious (in order to minimize such(More)
This paper takes an axiomatic approach to determining " Fair, Reasonable, and Non-Discriminatory " (" FRAND ") royalties for intellectual property (" IP ") rights. Drawing on the extensive game theory literature on " surplus sharing/cost sharing " problems, I describe specific formulas for determining license fees that can be derived from basic fairness(More)
Robo2 is the cell surface receptor for the repulsive guidance cue Slit and is involved in axon guidance and neuronal migration. Nephrin is a podocyte slit-diaphragm protein that functions in the kidney glomerular filtration barrier. Here, we report that Robo2 is expressed at the basal surface of mouse podocytes and colocalizes with nephrin. Biochemical(More)
Patients with IgG4-related disease (IgG4-RD) share histopathological characteristics that are similar across affected organs. The finding of infiltration with IgG4+ plasma cells in the proper clinical and histopathological contexts connects a large number of clinical entities that were viewed previously as separate conditions. The renal involvement in(More)
The development of fibrosis involves a multitude of events and molecules. Until now the majority of these molecules were found to be proteins or peptides. But recent data show significant involvement of the phospholipid lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) in the development of pulmonary, liver and renal fibrosis. The latest data on the role of LPA and the(More)
