Dear colleague,
The STAR congress CELLULAR RESPONSES TO OXIDATIVE AND OSMOTIC STRESS:
SENSING, SIGNALLING AND GENE EXPRESSION,  to be held in The Netherlands,
August 28-September 1, 1999, is open for early registration. Please note
the DEADLINE: MAY 15. We still welcome abstracts of poster presentations.
For all information, visit our Web site:
http://www.chem.vu.nl/STAR99/index.html.

The titles of the invited presentations are:
B. Halliwell: keynote lecture on Oxidative stress responses
H. Hirt:  MAP kinase pathway studies reveal the basis of cellular
bioinformatics
Sessions on oxidative stress response:
D. Touati: Triggering the soxRS response against superoxide stress in E.
coli: pathways and mechanisms
G. Storz: tile to be announced
N. Jones: Stress-activated transcription in fission yeast
D.J. Thiele: Regulation of copper ion transport and detoxification in yeast
Chr. Lamb: title to be announced
D. Inzé: Oxidative stress and signaling in plants
N.H. Hunt: Roles of oxidation-reduction processes in mammalian host
defences aginst infectious disease and injury
L. Packer: Oxidative stress and antioxidants in glutamate induced cytotoxicity
Sessions on osmotic stress response:
I.R. Booth: Creating a delicate balance: osmoregulatory strategies in bacteria
J. Gowrishankar: Evidence for a novel component of water stress in E. coli
F. Posas: Osmostress signal transduction in S. cerevisiae
S. Hohmann: Control of yeast glycerol accumulation is exerted at different
levels
K. Shinozaki: Molecular responses to osmotic stress in higher plant: gene
expression and signal transduction
N. Verbruggen: How to engineer crops with a higher osmotolerance?
M.B. Burg: Responses of renal medullary cells to osmotic stress
F. Lang: Functional significance of cell volume regulatory  mechanisms

Looking forward to hearing from you,
on behalf of the Organizing committee, Pim Mager
