This paper discusses the conceptualization, measurement, and interpretation of centrality in affiliation networks. Although centrality is a well-studied topic in social network analysis, and is one of the most widely used properties for studying affiliation networks, virtually all discussions of centrality and centralization have concerned themselves with(More)
We address a long hypothesized relationship between the proximity of individuals' dwelling units and their kinship association. Better understanding this relationship is important because of its implications for contact and association among members of a society. In this paper, we use a unique dataset from Nang Rong, Thailand which contains dwelling unit(More)
Infection with the β-herpesvirus human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is lifelong, causing limited disease in healthy adults, but life threatening in immunocompromised individuals. The viral kinase pUL97, a functional ortholog of cellular cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), is critical for HCMV replication and a target for antiviral drug development. Upon kinase(More)
*We acknowledge the helpful comments of the editor and anonymous reviewers. For their encouragement and suggestions on the research, we thank H. Abstract We describe and illustrate methodology for comparing networks from diverse settings. Our empirical base consists of 42 networks from four kinds of species (humans, non-human primates, non-primate mammals,(More)
We use scaling and statistical models to study networks of ties among Soviet politicians during the Brezhnev era created by their co-attendance at events. The data consist of observations made by the National Foreign Assessment Center of the Central Intelligence Agency of appearances of Soviet political elites at official and social events for 8 years(More)
[125I]Sar1, Ile8 angiotensin II labeled two distinct binding sites in rat brain. The displacement potencies of WL-19, a selective ligand for the angiotensin II subtype 2 receptor, angiotensin II and related peptides indicated that one binding site in the rat brain is the same as the adrenal angiotensin subtype 2 receptor. The second binding site in rat(More)
