The complex {Fe[HC(3,5-Me(2)pz)(3)](2)}I-2 (1) has been prepared from the reaction of FeI2 and HC(3,5-Me(2)pz)(3) (pz = pyrazolyl ring) in a 1:2 ratio. The complex is high-spin in both the solid state and in solution at ambient temperature, In the solid state, magnetic susceptibility and Mossbauer spectral studies indicate that samples of the complex that have been crystallized and dried change completely from high-spin to low-spin upon cooling below 195 K, with a substantial two-step thermal hysteresis in the transition, The spin-crossover properties of I are sample dependent: powder samples do not change to low-spin at low temperatures. Two crystalline forms of I have been identified by X-ray crystallography, one form containing no solvent of crystallization and the other containing solvent, In both, there is only one iron site, with average Fe-N bond lengths of 2.18 and 2.17 Angstrom, values that confirm that the complex is high-spin. Single crystals of the nonsolvated form shatter at low temperatures whereas single crystals of the solvated form can be cooled to 110 K with no loss of crystallinity and remain fully high spin at this temperature, Crystallographic information: nonsolvated form is triclinic, P (1) over bar, a = 8,8062(2) Angstrom, b = 10.3549(2) Angstrom, c = 11.3549(2) Angstrom, a = 104.0768(10), beta = 110.2473(10)degrees, gamma = 92.6385(11)degrees, Z = 1; solvated form is monoclinic P2(1)/c, a 10.3214(5) Angstrom, b = 12.7753(7) Angstrom, c = 20.1995(11) Angstrom, alpha = 90degrees, beta = 97.5380(10)degrees, gamma = 90degrees, Z = 2.

Thiamine triphosphate (ThTP) is found at low concentrations in most animal tissues, and recent data suggest that it may act as a phosphate donor for the phosphorylation of some proteins. In the mammalian brain, ThTP synthesis is rapid, but its steady-state concentration remains low, presumably because of rapid hydrolysis. In this report we purified a soluble thiamine triphosphatase (ThTPase; EC 3.6.1.28) from calf brain. The bovine ThTPase is a 24-kDa monomer, hydrolyzing ThTP with virtually absolute specificity. Partial sequence data obtained from the purified bovine enzyme by tandem mass spectrometry were used to search the GenBank(TM) data base. A significant identity was found with only one human sequence, the hypothetical 230-amino acid protein MGC2652. The coding regions from human and bovine brain mRNA were amplified by reverse transcription-PCR, cloned in Escherichia coli, and sequenced. The human open reading frame was expressed in E. coli as a GST fusion protein. Transformed bacteria had a high isopropyl-beta-D-thiogalactopyranoside-inducible ThTPase activity. The recombinant ThTPase had properties similar to those of human brain ThTPase, and it was specific for ThTP. The mRNA was expressed in most human tissues but at relatively low levels. This is the first report of a molecular characterization of a specific ThTPase. [less ▲]

This communication aims at reporting the superconducting properties of Bi-2223/Ag tapes determined by using various measuring techniques. First. the original samples have been characterized by electrical resistance, AC susceptibility. and DC magnetization. The transport (intergranular) critical Current vs. magnetic field was also determined at T = 77 K using pulsed currents up to 40 A. Next. the same combination of experiments as performed oil bent tapes in order to bring out relevant information concerning the strength of the intergranular coupling. The results show that intergranular and intragranular currents differ by at least one order of magnitude, Finally, additional magnetic measurements were carried out in order to determine the anisotropy ratio Jc(ab)/Jc(c), which was found to lie around 30.

Geuzaine, paru dans le numéro 3-2000 de cette revue, aborde l'étendue du phénomène du harcèlement moral ainsi que les aspects juridiques de la définition, la description du processus, ses conséquences médicales et les facteurs de risque. Dans la suite de cette étude, nous présentons ici les résultats d'une enquête menée auprès des médecins du travail, en tant que témoins et intervenants privilégiés dans le domaine du harcèlement. Cette enquête vise à apporter des informations descriptives originales concernant les attitudes, les opinions et représentations des médecins du travail par rapport au phénomène de harcèlement moral. En outre, elle est l'occasion de tester une série d'hypothèses sur les facteurs pouvant influencer l'attitude des médecins du travail vis-à-vis du harcèlement moral. [less ▲]

The nuclear weapons have a terrifying power of devastation. A civilian nuclear accident has its own dramatic consequences. Both situations are, however, totally distinct with regard to medical consequences. The Gulf war and Balkan war syndromes might be in part caused by uranium used in conventional amunitions. The risk of nuclear terrorism is an emerging eventuality. [less ▲]

The runoff and riverine fluxes of HCO3-, Si and Ge that arise from chemical erosion in non-glaciated terrain, are modelled at six time steps from the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) to the present day. The fluxes that arise from the Great Ice Sheets are also modelled. Terrestrial HCO3- fluxes decrease during deglaciation, largely because of the reduction in the area of the continental shelves as sea level rises. The HCO3- fluxes. and the inferred consumption of atmospheric CO2 are used as inputs to a carbon cycle model that estimates their impact on atmospheric CO2 concentrations ((CO2)-C-atms). A maximum perturbation of (CO2)-C-atms by similar to 5.5 ppm is calculated, The impact of solutes from glaciated terrain is small in comparison to those from non-glaciated terrain. Little variation in terrestrial Si and Ge fluxes is calculated (< 10%). However, the global average riverine Ge/Si ratio may be significantly perturbed if the glacial Ge/Si ratio is high. At present. variations in terrestrial chemical erosion appear to have only a reduced impact on (CO2)-C-atms and only little influence on the global Si and Ge cycle and marine Ge/Si ratios during deglaciation.

Genetic susceptibility to type 2 diabetes involves many genes, most of which are still unknown. The lipid phosphatase SHIP2 is a potent negative regulator of insulin signaling and sensitivity in vivo and is thus a good candidate gene. Here we report the presence of SHIP2 gene mutations associated with type 2 diabetes in rats and humans. The R1142C mutation specifically identified in Goto-Kakizaki (GK) and spontaneously hypertensive rat strains disrupts a potential class II ligand for Src homology (SH)-3 domain and slightly impairs insulin signaling in cell culture. In humans, a deletion identified in the SHIP2 3' untranslated region (UTR) of type 2 diabetic subjects includes a motif implicated in the control of protein synthesis. In cell culture, the deletion results in reporter messenger RNA and protein overexpression. Finally, genotyping of a cohort of type 2 diabetic and control subjects showed a significant association between the deletion and type 2 diabetes. Altogether, our results show that mutations in the SHIP2 gene contribute to the genetic susceptibility to type 2 diabetes in rats and humans [less ▲]
