We are grateful to Diane Castle for helping to prepare the document and to Rebecca Moylan and Mina Stavropoulos for assistance with extensive data input. We also appreciate the considerable assistance of Kelly McCullum (Sydney Futures Exchange), Sandra Muldoon (Dow Jones) and John Mair(More)
During Pavlovian conditioning the expression of a conditioned response typically serves as evidence that an association between a conditioned stimulus (CS) and an unconditioned stimulus (UCS) has been learned. However, learning-related changes in the unconditioned response (UCR) produced by a predictable UCS can also develop. In the present study, we(More)
Fibronectin (Fn) is an adhesive protein found in the plasma and extracellular tissue matrix. Locally synthesized tissue or cellular Fn (cFn) has extra domains (ED1 and ED2) not present in liver synthesized plasma Fn (pFn). In the lung, Fn is found in the endothelial and epithelial basement membranes, as well as in the interstitial matrix. Utilizing murine(More)
ooperation is ubiquitous in social life. Individuals collectively participate in all manner of endeavors including, for example, babysitting cooperatives, bowling leagues, and community associations. And yet failure to produce collective goods when they are desired is also widespread, such as when childcare or group leisure activities are unavailable, or(More)
This paper provides an empirical assessment of the effectiveness of foreign exchange intervention in two small open economies. Specifically, we examine the intervention practices of the Bank of Canada (BoC) and the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) for a sample of daily data spanning the period from 1989 to the end of 1997. Our analysis suggests that both(More)
Fibronectin exists in a soluble form in plasma and lymph as well as in a relatively insoluble form in tissues. The disappearance of endogenously labeled fibronectin from plasma and its subsequent extravascular localization was studied over a 38-h period in normal rats (350-400 g) utilizing plasma fibronectin labeled in vivo with 75Se-selenomethionine. For(More)
Fibronectin is an adhesive glycoprotein found in plasma and lymph as well as between lung endothelial cells and their collagenous basement membranes. Fibronectin is highly sensitive to proteolytic cleavage. We determined if fragments of fibronectin appear in lung lymph in association with increased lung protein clearance after thrombin-induced intravascular(More)
We are indebted to colleagues at the Reserve Bank of Australia, participants at seminars at the BIS and the London School of Economics and to Mardi Dungey for invaluable comments and suggestions. We are also grateful to Adam Cagliarini for technical advice, and Clare Padua for assistance with the data. Any errors are ours alone. The opinions expressed in(More)
Fibronectin exists in a soluble form in plasma and in an insoluble form in tissues. Plasma fibronectin can modulate phagocytic function as well as incorporate into the tissue matrix where it is believed to influence microvascular integrity and tissue repair. The temporal alterations in plasma and lung lymph fibronectin were studied in relation to increased(More)
