Kooi analyzes the spatial influence of bus stops on local crime information and scorching spots. His findings point out that neighborhoods with targeted bus cease destinations suffered greater crime whereas controlling for correct social disorganization variables. Crime surrounding or associated with bus cease destinations not just impacts use of public transportation but additionally patronage of companies surrounding the bus stops.

Sample text

After a stimulus-evoked response, the presynaptic neuron releases neurotransmitter (NT) into the synaptic cleft, activating preand postsynaptic ligand-gated channels or secondary messenger cascades (Fig. 1A and B). Chemical transmission is attenuated by NT degradation, diffusion, and clearance (Fig. 1C). The majority of transmitter molecules are sequestered in the presynaptic neuron via NT transporters (Axelrod and Kopin 1969; Graefe et al. 1978; Iversen et al. 1967). For example, the norepinephrine transporter (NET) removes 90% of released NE in peripheral noradrenergic neurons (Blakely 2001), and genetic NET ablation induces a significant increase in extracellular NE longevity (Moron et al.

NET and DAT demonstrate 80% amino acid conservation, and NET and SERT demonstrate 60% amino acid conservation (Blakely et al. 1991). In order to study ionic dependence, radiometric substrate accumulation is traditionally monitored in media in which Na+ and Cl− are replaced: Na+ is typically replaced with N-methyl-d-glucamine (NMDG+ ) or Li+ at equivalent osmolarity; however, these counter ions do not support substrate accumulation. A similar approach was employed to evaluate Cl− -dependent substrate accumulation.
