The Unauthorised Agent: Perspectives from European and Comparative Law

The focal point of this ebook, the criminal state of affairs created while an agent acts with out authority, is without doubt one of the most crucial concerns in business enterprise legislation. The research is split into 3 sections: obvious authority, ratification and the legal responsibility of the falsus procurator. Adopting a distinct comparative viewpoint, the contributions are drawn from many alternative criminal structures, delivering the chance for research of the ecu universal law/civil legislation divide.

1990; Petersen et al. 1991). , acetylcholine and cholecystokinin (CCK), induce cytoplasmic Ca2+ oscillations which are followed by synchronous, Ca2 +-dependent Clcurrents (Osipchuk et al. 1990; Petersen and Wakui 1990; Petersen et al. 1991). In rat parotid acini similar temperature-dependent Ca2 + and wholecell currents were detected (Gray 1988). In a recent study on the same cells, however, the Ca2 + oscillations observed are much slower than in pancreatic acini and followed by oscillations in intracellular Na+ concentration and cell volume (Wong and Foskett 1991).

1988a; Fuller et al. 1989a,b; Maruyama 1989; Thevenod et al. 1990). From studies on intact glands, it seems that different agonists, like acetylcholine and isoproterenol, stimulate a release of similar proteins, supporting the view that different regulatory pathways converge on the same secretory granules (Case et al. 1988). Recently, Piiper et al. (1991) found that in the rat pancreas the granular membrane contains G proteins similar to those in the plasma membrane. Additionally, intracellular-intragranular pH gradients and the membrane fluidity may playa modulating role on Cl- transport activity (Arvan and Castle 1986; Gasser et al.
