A brief review on the evolution of GPCR: conservation and diversification  [PDF]
Zaichao Zhang, Jiayan Wu, Jun Yu, Jingfa Xiao
Open Journal of Genetics (OJGen) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ojgen.2012.24B003
Abstract: G-protein couple receptors (GPCR) possess diversified functions and they comprise a large protein superfamily in cellular signaling. Numerous identification methods for GPCR have been employed and versatile GPCR types are discussed. Although they share conserved transmembrane structural topology, alignment results of all GPCR show no significant sequence similarities. Each GPCR type distributes diversely in different evolutionary hierarchies of eukaryotes, but it has a distinctive boundary in the era of metazoan. The common ancestor of GPCR metabotropic glutamate receptor includes 7-transmembrane structure and venus flytrap module, which is probably evolved from a compound of bacteriorhodopsin and periplasmic binding protein. Many investigations focus on fine structure shaping and GPCR classification. Here, we briefly discuss evolutionary dynamic mechanism of GPCR from the perspective of classification, diversification and conservation.
Economic Diversification for Sustainable Development in Nigeria  [PDF]
Michael Chugozie Anyaehie, Anthony Chukwudi Areji
Open Journal of Political Science (OJPS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojps.2015.52010
Abstract: Nigeria operates mono commodity (petroleum) based economy. She just extracts the oil for export. The generated revenue is not effectively invested on diversification of the economy to develop a robust and stable economy. This is due to some socio-political challenges that border on individual interests and poor socioeconomic orientations that militate against industrialisation of the economy. The situation exposes the nation to both economic and socio-political instability as the economy fails to accommodate wide spectrum of people and sustain the basic needs of the populace. Nigeria should pragmatically address the challenges of poor industrialisation to diversify her economy.
The Impact of the Enterprise Trans-Province Geographical Diversification on the Corporate Performance of the Manufacturing Industry in Eastern Part of China—Empirical Analysis Based on the Panel Data of the Listed Companies  [PDF]

Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2017.51007
Abstract: China market is a divisional market. The distinction between the provinces in China is even larger than the one between some countries abroad. This article studies the relationship between the manufacturing expansion behavior across provinces in the east part of China and the corporate performance. Here two assumptions are presented in this article: 1) there exists a negative correlation between the geographical diversification degree across provinces and the corporate performance; 2) there exists a U-shaped relationship between the geographical diversification degree across provinces and the corporate. By studying the data on 442 China listed companies during the period of 2009 to 2014, it is found that the geographical diversification has a negative impact on the corporate performance when the geographical diversification degree is lower, while the geographical diversification has an active impact on the corporate performance if the geographical diversification degree is higher.

Journal of Human Resource and Sustainability Studies (JHRSS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/jhrss.2018.61027
Abstract: Alpha is a diversified listed company, which developed from a single toy company to a company with four business sectors. Its development strategy is worth being studied. This essay focuses on Alpha’s corporate-level strategies. With the introduction and analysis of the internal and external environment of Alpha Company, and combining with the analysis of the company business model, the paper used the analysis tools such as SWOT and PEST to study the management model and business portfolios of the company. In the process of diversification development of many Chinese enterprises, they often focus on business-level strategy, while ignoring the importance of corporate-level strategy. This may make them ignore the expansion of investment, support of the core business and the coordination of the business. Therefore, the corporate strategy is an important factor for the enterprise’s development. Then, the paper draws the conclusion that the management model needed to be adjusted, and the business portfolios needed to be improved. According to this conclusion, it figured out the Alpha’s strategic objectives and planning schemes, and set the diversification strategy, which might be suitable for the company development. Finally, the paper put forward the concrete measures of corporate-level strategy, including five aspects of the management adjustment measures, which are the adjustment of the organizational structure, the management of the integration of acquisition resources, R & D resources’ integration, integration of human resources and integration of sales resources. Conclusions might provide some effective suggestions for building the company’s long-term strategy.

Abstract: this article presents, in the first place, a brief critical analysis of the different ways of measure of the corporate strategy that the specialized literature has published. however, given to the difficulty of measuring the diversification construct through traditional forms, it has been chosen the construction and application of a way of measure starting from the information given by the survey on business strategies (esee). the analysis period is from 1991 to 2005 and the form of measure proposal is applied to a sample of spanish industrial firms. later on, we analyzes the distribution of diversified firms by industrial sectors and an analysis of the distribution of the firms according to their size. the results show that in the spanish case only 15% of the companies follows diversification strategies and that most of the companies fall into smallest dimension category.
An Analysis of the Growth Trajectory of Monsanto  [PDF]
Rafaela Di Sabato Guerrante, Adelaide Maria de Souza Antunes, Nei Pereira Jr.
iBusiness (IB) , 2010, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2010.23028
Abstract: The present article aims to present the trajectory of the Monsanto company in light of the main concepts and theories of Chandler, Penrose, Greiner and Fleck related to the growth dynamic of organizations. The analysis of the company’s history from its foundation in 1901 to 2008 allows for the identification of recurring behaviors essential to its trajectory of continuous growth, and offer proof of its propensity to self-perpetuate. The company’s organizational restructurings, decentralization of power, frequent diversification into related areas (foods, pharmaceuticals and genetically modified seeds), acquisition of, or forming of, joint ventures with companies already active in target markets, purchase of technological packages, contracting personnel specialized in areas of interest, long-term planning, use of the versatility and ambition of its leaders in the allocation of idle resources and services, amongst other activities, are hallmarks and characteristics of the journey of Monsanto.
Does the Servitization Strategy Improve the Performance of Manufacturing Enterprises in China?  [PDF]
Lianxing Min, Jianqiong Wang, Qian Luo
American Journal of Industrial and Business Management (AJIBM) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ajibm.2015.55030
Abstract: There is a controversy of the relationship between servitization of manufacturing and business performance in the literature. Based on the data of Hu-Shen A-share listed manufacturing enterprises in 2013, this paper examined the relationship in the above with the traditional servitization level variable(SERL) and the servitization decision variable(SERD), which was generated in a dynamic perspective of strategic decision, to measure the servitization strategy. The empirical results showed that the servitization decision was positively correlated with the market performance (Tobin’s q), and the servitization level was negatively correlated with the financial performance, including return on assets (ROA), economic value added change rate (EVAC) and earnings per share (EPS). Further, we discussed the results from the signal theory and diversification discount theory.

Guangyi Xu, Xiaoming Ou, Xi Chen
Technology and Investment (TI) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ti.2016.73009
Abstract: Debt financing and diversification are two important characteristics of agricultural listed companies in China. This paper uses multiple linear regression model with financial data of 52 agricultural listed companies from 2009 to 2014 in Chinese Stock Exchanges to study the mediating effect of diversification on debt financing and operating performance. Results show that debt financing has a significantly negative impact on operating performance, and diversification plays a partial intermediary role between debt financing and operating performance.
The Impact of Bank Income Diversification on Capital Buffer Periodicity  [PDF]

Open Journal of Business and Management (OJBM) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ojbm.2017.52033
Abstract: Based on the panel data of 16 listed banks in China from 2004 to 2014, this paper makes empirical analysis to examine the relationship between bank’s capital buffer and macroeconomic fluctuations or income diversification. The results show that the banks’ income diversification has negatively correlation with macroeconomic fluctuations. It means the banks’ capital buffer behaves in a counter-cyclical way, and different bank ownership structure or capital level also has asymmetric influence in expansion and slack time. What’s more, the non-interest income of bank has a significant negative impact on capital buffer and its periodicity. The diversification of bank income structure not only reduces the bank’s capital buffer level, but also weakens the counter-cyclical characteristics of capital buffer. At the same time, the diversification of the income structure of the bank with high capital adequacy ratio has no obvious effect on the counter-cyclical characteristics of the capital buffer. Based on the above conclusions, this paper believes that the regulatory authorities in the implementation of the counter-cyclical capital regulation should fully consider the impact of bank income structure and bank capital levels.

—An Empirical Research Based on VAR Model

Shichang Shen, Sheng Shao
Journal of Mathematical Finance (JMF) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/jmf.2017.74046
Abstract: There is a closely interactive relationship among health insurance, life insurance, property insurance, accident insurance. Based on data from January 2006 to January 2017, we use VAR model to analyze the interactive relationship among health insurance, life insurance, property insurance, accident insurance empirically by Eviews 8.0. The results show that there is a long-term equilibrium and mutual causality among health insurance, life insurance, property insurance, accident insurance. From short term perspective, there are positive effects among the four major types of insurances. In particular, the promotion of accident insurance to health insurance is the most dominant, which will provide a powerful security to the diversified and comprehensive management and professional rapid development of health insurance.
