Finance for renewable energy: an empirical analysis of developing and transition economies

Christa N. Brunnschweiler
This paper examines the role of the financial sector in renewable energy (RE) development. Although RE can bring socio-economic and environmental benefits, its implementation faces a number of obstacles, especially in non-OECD countries. One of these obstacles is financing: underdeveloped financial sectors are unable to e±ciently channel loans to RE producters. The influence of financial sector development on the use of renewable energy resources is confirmed in panel data estimations on up to 119 non-OECD...

Imp-L2, a putative homolog of vertebrate IGF-binding protein 7, counteracts insulin signaling in Drosophila and is essential for starvation resistance

Basil Honegger, Milos Galic, Katja Köhler, Franz Wittwer, Walter Brogiolo, Ernst Hafen & Hugo Stocker
Background. Insulin and insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) signal through a highly conserved pathway and control growth and metabolism in both vertebrates and invertebrates. In mammals, insulin-like growth factor binding proteins (IGFBPs) bind IGFs with high affinity and modulate their mitogenic, anti-apoptotic and metabolic actions, but no functional homologs have been identified in invertebrates so far. Results. Here, we show that the secreted Imaginal morphogenesis protein-Late 2 (Imp-L2) binds Drosophila insulin-like peptide 2 (Dilp2) and inhibits...
