AIMS AND OBJECTIVES To examine the prevalence of aggression against healthcare professionals and to determine the possible impact that violent episodes have on healthcare professionals in terms of loss of enthusiasm and involvement towards work. The objective was to analyse the percentage of occupational assault against professionals' aggression in(More)
A 6.5-kilobase murine genomic DNA fragment isolated by Levenson et al. (Levenson, R., Racaniello, V., Albritton, L., and Housman, D. (1984) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 81, 1489-1493) (called the ouabain resistance gene) has been shown to produce ouabain resistance in primate cells. Preliminary sequence information has revealed no homology with the coding(More)
The association of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) with its high-affinity receptor, c-met, has been shown to induce mitogenesis, motogenesis, and morphogenesis in renal epithelial cells (L. G. Cantley, E. J. G. Barros, M. Gandhi, M. Rauchman, and S. K. Nigam. Am. J. Physiol. 267 (Renal Fluid Electrolyte Physiol. 36): F271-F280, 1994), suggesting that HGF may(More)
Felisberta Maria Jesus Cunha The influence of extracts of Ascoplryllum nodosum on plant and soil-borne pathogen interactions This thesis presents an investigation into the responses to extracts of Ascophyllum nodosum (Maxicrop seaweed extracts MSE) of two different plants species wheat and strawberry, and their interactions with two soil-borne pathogens,(More)
Introduction of the murine "ouabain resistance gene" (Levenson, R., Racaniello, V., Albritton, L., and Housman, D. (1984) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 81, 1489-1493) into African Green monkey CV1 cells reportedly resulted in one cell line, OR6 cells, which was found to be resistant to > 1 mM ouabain (English, L., Epstein, J., Cantley, L., Housman, D., and(More)
Transfection of primate cells with a 6.4-kilobase murine genomic DNA fragment (called ouabain resistance gene or MOR6.5) has been shown previously to confer ouabain resistance (Levenson, R., Racaniello, V., Albritton, L., and Housman, D. (1984) Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 81, 1489-1493). The mechanism by which this sequence can transfer ouabain resistance(More)
