Differences in voter turnout among industrial democracies are a function of political institutions and electoral law. Specifically, the presence of nationally competitive electoral districts provides…
The molecular basis of skeletal muscle atrophy.
The purpose of this review is to synthesize the current understanding of the molecular regulation of muscle atrophy, and discusses how ongoing work should uncover more about the molecular underpinnings of muscle wasting, particularly that due to disuse.
Sources of Corruption: A Cross-Country Study
Why is government corruption more pervasive in some societies than in others? In this article we examine public choice explanations that attribute corruption to a lack of competition in either…
Five diagnostic procedures are reviewed: partial regression plots, the “hat” matrix, studentized residuals, DFITSi, and DFBETASij, to underscore the point that the diagnostics cannot be employed mechanically.
Intracellular signaling during skeletal muscle atrophy
This review focuses on the most recent findings related to intracellular signaling during muscle atrophy involving muscle ubiquitin ligases, the IGF/PI3K/Akt pathway, FOXO activity, caspase‐3 activity, and NF‐kappaB signaling and an attempt is made to construct a unifying picture of how these data can be connected to better understand atrophy.
Conditions Favouring Parties of the Extreme Right in Western Europe
We examine the systemic conditions that have influenced the electoral success of parties of the extreme right in West European politics from 1970 through 1990. Empirical estimates based on 103…
POLITICAL DEMOCRACY AND THE SIZE DISTRIBUTION OF INCOME
This paper reviews the major theoretical arguments that link political democracy with economic inequality. It then shows that previous empirical analyses of the linkage have produced inconclusive…
Vascular permeability factor (VPF, VEGF) in tumor biology
VPF/VEGF has recently been found to have a role in wound healing and its expression by activated macrophages suggests that it probably also participates in certain types of chronic inflammation.
Overexpression of vascular permeability factor/vascular endothelial growth factor and its receptors in psoriasis
It is reported here that the hyperplastic epidermis of psoriatic skin expresses strikingly increased amounts of vascular permeability factor (VPF; vascular endothelial growth factor), a selective endothelial cell mitogen that enhances microvascular permeability.
Voter Turnout in the Industrial Democracies during the 1980s
There are two contending accounts of cross-national variation in voter turnout rates. One emphasizes the role of institutions and electoral attributes, whereas the other stresses cultural and…
