Fiscal considerations may shift governmental priorities away from environmental concerns: Finance ministers face strong demand for public expenditures such as infrastructure investments but they are constrained by international tax competition. We develop a multi-region model of tax competition and resource extraction to assess the fiscal incentive of(More)
To elucidate the role of S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (SAMDC) in breast cancer biology, we have generated SAMDC overexpressing MCF-7 breast cancer cells. SAMDC overexpression did not alter in a major way growth properties of MCF-7 cells in soft agar, either under basal conditions or in response to estrogen and antiestrogen administration. SAMDC-MCF-7(More)
SP10 phage cannot propagate in Bacillus subtilis Marburg 168 containing the wild-type allele of either gene nonA or gene nonB. The latter gene codes for the intrinsic cellular restriction activity. SP10 DNA was degraded in nonB+ derivatives of Marburg 168. The degree of degradation depended upon the previous host in which SP10 was propagated. In the case of(More)
Climate change economics mostly neglects sizeable interactions of carbon pricing with other fiscal policy instruments. Conversely, public finance typically overlooks the effects of future decarbonization efforts when devising instruments for the major goals of fiscal policy. We argue that such a compartmentalisation is undesirable: policy design taking into(More)
A hypermodified base (Y-Thy) replaces 20% of the thymine (Thy) in mature DNA of Bacillus subtilis phage SP10. Two noncomplementing hypermodification-defective (hmd) mutants are described. At 30 degrees C, hmd phage carried out a normal program, but at temperatures of >/=37 degrees C, the infection process was nonproductive. When cells were infected at 37(More)
