  Indonesia is facing a rapid institutional change arising from the 1997 Asian Crisis, and state-owned enterprises (SOEs) were forced to undertake a transformation to survive in the increasing market competition and to revive their roles as the engine of economic growth. This included measures to tackle the increasingly vital human-related issues, namely human resource management (HRM). This research focuses on the dynamic relationships between the SOEs and their internal and external stakeholders in the post-1997 Asian Crisis. It addresses three main issues. First is to investigate the change within the Indonesian institutions and the influence on the firms. Second is to examine the response of the firms as captured in their firms’ transformation initiatives in the area of HRM. Third is to elaborate the implications for theory and practices regarding transitional economy in general and HRM changes in particular. The results indicate that the transformation of SOEs has been determined by the firms’ relationships with both their internal and external stakeholders. Following the Asian Crisis, Indonesia witnesses a drastic change of the HR practices toward greater market orientation and the pervasiveness of ’best practices’.

  This study examines the challenges facing China’s increasingly complex labour-management relations system vis-a-vis the new economic, political and social environment it faces and how it is adapting to the new concept of the ‘harmonious society’ - to which the new Chinese leadership now aspires. The contribution concludes that the changes in the labour-management relations system reflect the impact of globalization on enterprise diversity as well as the increasing important position of trade unions to coordinate labour relations and protect worker’s rights and interests. There will be another ‘Long-March’ needed for both party/state and other civil groups in China to reach a new social equilibrium.

  China has undergone extensive reform of its business system in its rapid transition to a market economy. In this process, the success of enterprises has depended heavily on changing structural conditions, such as the transformation of ownership and market competition, on the ability of management to adapt to new labour and product markets, and on new ways of getting workers to commit to the enterprises' goals. This study explores enterprise success by modelling organizational performance as a function of intangible management practices, either directly or through their effects on employee satisfaction, all within the context of transition. The findings of the research demonstrate that employee satisfaction is influenced by some forms of intangible management; that enterprise success is conditioned by employee satisfaction, by some measures of transition and by a range of intangible management practices.

  Borna disease virus (BDV) is one of the infectious agents that causes diseases of the central nervous system in a wide range of vertebrate species and, perhaps, in humans. The phosphoprotein (P) of BDV, an essential cofactor of virus RNA-dependent RNA polymerase, is required for virus replication. In this study, we identified the gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor-associated protein (GABARAP) with functions in neurobiology as one of the viral P protein-interacting cellular factors by using an approach of phage display-based protein-protein interaction analysis. Direct binding between GABARAP and P protein was confirmed by coimmunoprecipitation, protein pull-down, and mammalian two-hybrid analyses. GABARAP originally was identified as a linker between the gamma-aminobutyric acid receptor (GABAR) and the microtubule to regulate receptor trafficking and plays important roles in the regulation of the inhibitory neural transmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). We showed that GABARAP colocalizes with P protein in the cells infected with BDV or transfected with the P gene, which resulted in shifting the localization of GABARAP from the cytosol to the nucleus. We further demonstrated that P protein blocks the trafficking of GABAR, a principal GABA-gated ion channel that plays important roles in neural transmission, to the surface of cells infected with BDV or transfected with the P gene. We proposed that during BDV infection, P protein binds to GABARAP, shifts the distribution of GABARAP from the cytoplasm to the nucleus, and disrupts the trafficking of GABARs to the cell membranes, which may result in the inhibition of GABA-induced currents and in the enhancement of hyperactivity and anxiety.
