    • Capitalist Agriculture and Labour Contracting in Northern Peru, 1880-1905 

      Gonzales, Michael J. (Cambridge University Press, 1980)
      Article argues that the process of enganche, or the procurement of native highlanders to labor in coastal Peruvian sugar plantations, stemmed in the period 1880-1905 from elements of coercion and violence, as well as capital ...
    • Market Constraints as a Rationale for the Friedman-Savage Utility Function 

      Katz, Eliakim; Appelbaum, Elie (University of Chicago Press, 1981-08)
    • Are Annulate Lamellae in the Drosophila Embryo the Result of Overproduction of Nuclear Pore Components? 

      Stafstrom, Joel P.; Staehelin, L. Andrew (Rockefeller University Press, 1984-02)
      Annulate lamellae are cytoplasmic organelles composed of stacked sheets of membrane containing pores that are structurally indistinguishable from nuclear pores. The functions of annulate lamellae are not well understood ...
    • The Role of Carbohydrate in Maintaining Extensin in an Extended Conformation 

      Stafstrom, Joel P.; Staehelin, L. Andrew (American Society of Plant Biologists, 1986)
      Monomers of the plant cell wall glycoprotein extensin are secreted into the wall where they become cross-linked to each other to form a rigid matrix. Expression of the extensin matrix is correlated with the inhibition ...
    • Cross-Linking Patterns in Salt-Extractable Extensin from Carrot Cell Walls 

      Stafstrom, Joel P.; Staehelin, L. Andrew (American Society of Plant Biologists, 1986)
      Extensins are hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins (HRGPs) found in the primary cell walls of dicots. Extensin monomers are secreted into the wall and covalently bound to each other, presumably by isodityrosine (IDT) ...
    • Labor Migration and Risk Aversion in Less Developed Countries 

      Katz, Eliakim; Stark, Oded (University of Chicago Press, 1986)
      In this paper we question the pioneering work of Todaro, which states that rural-to-urban labor migration in less developed countries (LDCs) is an individual response to a higher urban expected income. We demonstrate that ...
    • Multiple-Output Production and Pricing in Electric Utilities 

      Karlson, Stephen H. (Southern Economic Association, 1986-07)
    • A Second Extensin-Like Hydroxyproline-Rich Glycoprotein from Carrot Cell Walls' 

      Stafstrom, Joel P.; Staehelin, L. Andrew (American Society of Plant Biologists, 1987)
      The insoluble extensin matrix of dicot cell wails has been studied most fruitfully by examining the salt-extractable precursors to this matrix. Multiple extensin-like hydroxyproline-rich glycoproteins (HRGPs) have been ...

    • Chinese Plantation Workers and Social Conflict in Peru in the late Nineteenth Century 

      Gonzales, Michael J. (Cambridge University Press, 1989-10)
      Examines Chinese plantation workers' transition from indentured servitude to wage labor in Peru of the late nineteenth century, providing detailed anlaysis of labour conditions in the Condor and Sana Valleys.

    • Soybean Leaves Contain Multiple Lipoxygenases 

      Grayburn, W. Scott; Schneider, R.; Hamilton-Kemp, T.R.; Bookjans, G.; Ali, K.; Hildebrand, D.F. (American Society of Plant Biologists, 1991)
      Chromatofocusing of soybean (Glycine max L.) leaf lipoxygenases revealed three distinct peaks of activity. Based on their isoelectric points (pis), pH optima, and mutant analysis it appears that the leaf isozymes are ...
    • Planters and Politics in Peru, 1895-1919 

      Gonzales, Michael J. (Cambridge University Press, 1991-10)
      Article explores Peruvian political development in the period 1895-1919, with a focus on the activities of the Civilistas Party, Guillermo Billinghurst, and Augusto B. Leguia.
