Befriending museums

, : Befriending museums. Recreation Canada 51(3): 27-29

The article discusses how Canadian museums rely on assistance from volunteers. Volunteers form the backbone of the human resources needed to sustain museum activity; 25 000 of them across Canada provide hundreds of thousands of hours of unpaid work each year to supplement the work of less than 50% as many professionals. With growing budget deficits, Canadian museums need friends. Millions of people visit museums in Canada each year, but only about 2% take out membership.

The complete nucleotide sequence (1,851 hp) was determined for the Xanthomonas campestris pv. vesicatoria plasmid pXV64. Sequence analysis revealed an intergenic region (IG) of 355 bp and two oppositely running open reading frames, ORF1 and ORF2,...

Yousef, I.M.; Tuchweber, B.; Weber, A.; Roy, C.C., 1988: Contribution of the fluid phase endocytosis to bile flow in cholestasis and choleresis in rats. Using a single iv injection of 1 mg Evans blue dye/100 g body wt in rats, the contribution of the fluid phase endocytosis to bile flow was estimated. In control rats, this pathway contributed 2-4% of the bile flow or 10-20 .mu.l/hr/100 g body wt....

Neurofilament proteins, the major cytoskeletal components of large myelinated axons, are highly phosphorylated by second messenger-dependent and -independent kinases. These kinases, together with tubulins and other cytoskeletal proteins, have been...

The mechanisms of secretory phospholipase A2 (sPLA2) action are not understood clearly. Previously, it was suggested that sPLA2s are internalized into cells for the targeting of sPLA2 to intracellular action sites. However, the mechanisms for sPLA...
