By examining how executive compensation structure determines corporate acquisition decisions, we document a strong positive relation between acquiring man-agers' equity-based compensation ~EBC! and stock price performance around and following acquisition announcements. This relation is highly robust when we control for acquisition mode ~mergers!, means of(More)
The study is aimed at investigating the possible involvement of adrenergic mechanisms in the medial preoptic area (mPOA) for modulation of sleep-wakefulness in rats. In this study, saline, norepinephrine (NE), phenoxybenzamine (PBZ) and propranolol (PROP) were injected in the mPOA in different groups of male rats during the day and night. NE and PBZ were(More)
We examine whether the existence of a bank/firm relationship lowers the cost of public debt financing. Using a sample of first public straight debt offers, we test the cross-monitoring effect of bank debt and Diamond's (1991, Journal of Political Economy, 99, 689—721) reputation-building argument. We find that the existence of bank debt lowers the at-issue(More)
INTRODUCTION Oxidative stress plays key role in pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease. Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs), a family of phase-II isoenzymes, play a critical role in providing protection against electrophiles and products of oxidative stress. Among different classes of GSTs, GSTM1 (Mu) and GSTT1 (theta) are found to be genetically deleted which(More)
The study makes an attempt to find out the action of norepinephrine (NE) and phenoxybenzamine (PB), applied at medial preoptic area (mPOA), in altering the sleep-awake responses, in free moving rats, which has not yet been reported. Effects of application of NE during day and PB during night, at mPOA, on sleep-awake responses, were compared with application(More)
Association of glutathione S-transferase (GST) M1 and T1 deletions with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) and prostate cancer is well reported. These enzymes metabolize numerous toxins thus protecting from oxidative injury. Oxidative stress has been associated with development of BPH and prostate cancer. The present study was designed to analyze role of GST(More)
Verbose web queries are often descriptive in nature where a term based search engine is unable to distinguish between the essential and noisy words, which can result in a drift from the user intent. We present a randomized query reduction technique that builds on an earlier learning to rank based approach. The proposed technique randomly picks only a small(More)
BACKGROUND The clinical application of stem cell therapy for myocardial infarction will require the development of methods to monitor treatment and pre-clinical assessment in a large animal model, to determine its effectiveness and the optimum cell population, route of delivery, timing, and flow milieu. OBJECTIVES To establish a model for a) in vivo(More)
