Traditional mediation practices: Are we throwing the baby out with the bath water?

CONFLICT RESOLUTION QUARTERLY, Issue 4 2004
Ho-Beng Chia
This article examines the mediation practices of the Chinese and Malay communities in Singapore and highlights the role of cultural and community values, beliefs, and religion in shaping the mediation process. A comparison of traditional Chinese, Malay, and newly institutionalized practices shows the differences in approaches and the role of "neutral" community members in the mediation process. [source]

Memory enhancement: the progress and our fears

GENES, BRAIN AND BEHAVIOR, Issue 4 2003
R. Gerlai
In a recent article Rose (2002) raises numerous crucial issues with regard to the research into and the use of cognition or memory enhancing agents. Although development of ,smart' drugs is in its infancy, his paper delineates some issues society may have to face when these drugs arrive. Questions about the development of such drugs may be interesting to several readers of Genes Brain and Behavior given the wealth of information expected to be gained on brain function from studies using genetic approaches including mutagenesis, transgenic techniques and genomics in general. Besides the scientific questions, several ethical issues may need to be addressed that are of interest to us all. Rose (2002) discusses some of these questions, but perhaps presents a too negative view on the problems, especially with regard to the present and future of memory research. This paper is intended to focus mainly on the scientific questions and argues that our fear of complex ethical problems should not make us throw the baby (i.e., our research and discoveries) out with the bath water.

There is a baby in the bath water: AcrB contamination is a major problem in membrane-protein crystallization

ACTA CRYSTALLOGRAPHICA SECTION F (ELECTRONIC), Issue 10 2008
David Veesler
In the course of a crystallographic study of the Methanosarcina mazei CorA transporter, the membrane protein was obtained with at least 95% purity and was submitted to crystallization trials. Small crystals (<100,Ám) were grown that diffracted to 3.42,┼ resolution and belonged to space group R32, with unit-cell parameters a = b = 145.74, c = 514.0,┼. After molecular-replacement attempts using available CorA structures as search models failed to yield a solution, it was discovered that the crystals consisted of an Escherichia coli contaminating protein, acriflavine resistance protein B (AcrB), that was present at less than 5% in the protein preparations. AcrB contamination is a major problem when expressing membrane proteins in E. coli since it binds naturally to immobilized metal-ion affinity chromatography (IMAC) resins. Here, the structure is compared with previously deposited AcrB structures and strategies are proposed to avoid this contamination. [source]
