    Notes: [Auszug] THE Reagan Administration is showing every sign of having bitten off more than it is willing to chew by its decision in 1981 to establish a national commission to review education standards in high schools. The commission's final report was expected to confirm that all was not well but not to go so ...

    Notes: [Auszug] Washington THE Department of Energy (DoE) is proposing to clamp down on unclassified information relating to nuclear weapons, a move that universities say would have a chilling effect on fundamental research supported by DoE. The proposal - which stems from a 1982 law allowing the department to ...

    Notes: [Auszug] CONSIDERING their importance to plants, it is surprising that we do not know more about leaves. What, for example, determines leaf size and what is the adaptive significance of size and longevity in leaves? Presumably the evolution of the evergreen habit conveys certain advantages upon a plant ...

    Notes: [Auszug] Stimulation of fibroblasts with serum or purified growth factors leads to a dramatic induction of expression of both c-fos mRNA and protein within a few minutes, followed by activation of c-myc. This suggests that c-fos induction is a primary event and the earliest known effect on gene expression ...
