Bovine aortic smooth muscle cell (BASMC) cultures undergo mineralization on addition of the organic phosphate donor, beta-glycerophosphate (betaGP). Mineralization is characterized by apatite deposition on collagen fibrils and the presence of matrix vesicles, as has been described in calcified vascular lesions in vivo as well as in bone and teeth. In the(More)
The extremely elongated morphology of fungal hyphae is dependent on the cell's ability to assemble and maintain polarized growth machinery over multiple cell cycles. The different morphologies of the fungus Candida albicans make it an excellent model organism in which to study the spatiotemporal requirements for constitutive polarized growth and the(More)
Over the past 15 years, relational exchange theory (RET) has increasingly received attention in the marketing literature. Marketing scholars have particularly contributed to the empirical verification of the norm concept which occupies a central role in RET. However, a vast set of potential norms is discussed in the literature. The author provides a review(More)
Six patients with menorrhagia due to dysfunctional uterine bleeding and one patient with an intrauterine contraceptive device were treated with prostaglandin-synthetase inhibitors in an attempt to reduce their excessive menstrual blood-loss. Mefenamic acid (six patients) or flufenamic acid (one patient) taken during menstruation for 2-3 cycles reduced(More)
The prostaglandin-synthetase inhibitors, mefenamic acid and flufenamic acid, were compared with the analgesic, dextropropoxyphene/paracetamol, in the treatment of primary dysmenorrhoea in a double-blind crossover trial. Results were assessed in 30 patients who took each drug during menstruation for three consecutive cycles. The patients' assessment of each(More)
