This paper aims to begin to consider the evidence for AIDS as a disease of poverty. It seeks to describe the important influence of the social and economic context of HIV/AIDS and of those behaviours associated with HIV transmission, and argues for a shift in emphasis in the conceptualization of the 'problem of AIDS'. The relationship between poverty and(More)
Striatal medium spiny neurons are an important site of convergence for signaling mediated by the neurotransmitters dopamine and glutamate. We report that in striatal neurons in primary culture, signaling through group I metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs) 1/5 and the D1 class of dopamine receptors (DRs) 1/5 converges to increase phosphorylation of the(More)
A flame photometric technique is described for determining average values for intracellular [Na+] and [K+] in HeLa cells. Ion measurements were made on unwashed cells disrupted ultrasonically in the presence of residual medium; corrections for the latter were made by measurement of extracellular volume in cell plus medium preparations using 125I-labelled(More)
A method of analysis is proposed based on the enzyme-catalysed transfer of tritium from [3H]NADH to suitable substrates. Its practicability is demonstrated on the examples of oestrone and progesterone with the respective use of the 3 beta, 17 beta- and 3 alpha, 20 beta-hydroxysteroid oxidoreductase. Specificity is tested by application to the analysis of(More)
