How has publishing in top economics journals changed since 1970? Using a data set that combines information on all articles published in the top-5 journals from 1970 to 2012 with their Google Scholar citations, we identify nine key trends. First, annual submissions to the top-5 journals nearly doubled from 1990 to 2012. Second, the total number of articles(More)
Imp13, a member of importin-β superfamily, is found to be one of two bidirectional transport receptors in many nuclear transport activities in mammals. Several cargoes of imp13 have been identified; most of these are essential factors involved in cell cycle and development. The expression and localization of imp13 may influence its cargoes in playing their(More)
Recent DNA sequencing projects and the establishment of high-throughput assays have provided an abundance of sequence information and data on nucleotide polymorphisms in rice. Based on previously identified single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and insertions/deletions, we employed denaturing high-performance liquid chromatography (DHPLC) to genotype rice(More)
Academic journals set a variety of policies that affect the supply of new manuscripts. We study the impact of page length policies adopted by the American Economic Review (AER) in 2008 and the Journal of the European Economic Association (JEEA) in 2009, focusing the decision by potential authors to either shorten a longer manuscript, or submit to another(More)
His296 of Zymomonas mobilis levansucrase (EC 2.4.1.10) is crucial for the catalysis of the transfructosylation reaction. The three-dimensional structures of levansucrases revealed the His296 is involved in the substrate recognition and binding. In this study, nine mutants were created by site-directed mutagenesis, in which His296 was substituted with amino(More)
