En 1985, lors du Congrès anniversaire du jubilé qui se tint en Avignon, Jean Leclercq illustra le rayonnement de Jean Henri Fabre en dehors de l’espace culturel francophone, de son vivant et par la suite . Il nous revient maintenant d’avoir la même curiosité pour la Belgique. Le sujet est vaste, mériterait une enquête approfondie et pourrait faire l’objet d’une thèse. Nous n’avons pas une telle ambition. Nous nous contenterons de rapporter quelques faits et souvenirs significatifs de l’accueil, favorable ou réservé, que Fabre et les Souvenirs entomologiques ont reçu chez les scientifiques belges francophones, dans les universités et dans les sociétés entomologiques. Nous distinguons trois périodes. [less ▲]

Benign familial neonatal convulsions (BFNC) is a rare autosomal dominant generalized epilepsy of the newborn infant. Seizures occur repeatedly in the first days of life and remit by approximately 4 months of age. Previously our laboratory cloned two novel potassium channel genes, KCNQ2 and KCNQ3, and showed that they are mutated in patients with BFNC. In this report, we characterize the breakpoints of a previously reported interstitial deletion in the KCNQ2 gene and show that only KCNQ2 is deleted. We identify 11 novel mutations in KCNQ2 and one novel mutation in the KCNQ3 potassium channel genes. In one family, the phenotype extends beyond neonatal seizures and includes rolandic seizures, and a subset of families has onset of seizures in infancy. In the Xenopus oocyte expression system, we characterize five KCNQ2 and one KCNQ3 disease-causing mutations. These mutations cause a variable loss of function, and selective effects on the biophysical properties of KCNQ2/KCNQ3 heteromultimeric channels. We report here the first dominant negative mutation in KCNQ2 that has a phenotype of neonatal seizures without permanent clinical CNS impairment. [less ▲]

There is a complex functional organization of the central auditory system from the brainstem to primary and associative auditory cortices. Functional neuroimaging has been used to visualize and confirm the spatial distribution of brain activation in temporal areas for the processing of simple acoustic stimuli. Brain activity is much more complex for words, and different networks can be recruited when phonological, lexical and semantic levels of processing are engaged. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: The precise pathomechanism of rosacea remains elusive. The disease commonly requires long-term treatments using topical or oral therapies. OBJECTIVE: This report presents incidental findings about the possible modulatory role of somatostatin in the outcome of rosacea. METHOD: Four patients presenting long-standing recalcitrant facial rosacea were treated with octreotide for diabetic retinopathy. RESULTS: Rosacea improved rapidly and even cleared without any recurrence in 3 of the patients. CONCLUSION: The beneficial effect might be attributed to inhibitory actions on the sebaceous gland, the neovascularization and/or on the inflammatory process. [less ▲]

Swimming is one of the most common sports activities in Walloon region as in many countries (Bodson, 1997). According to Boullé (1999) swimming courses concern various sectors of practice: the awakening (blooming of the person), the discovery (educational purposes), the improvement (to pass a test or to carry out a performance), the leisure and maintenance (relaxation or improvement of the form and health), the practice in natural environment. Additionally, swimming is a prerequisite to other sports and cultural activities. Considering its place in individual safety, education, health and leisure, its importance in child and youth development is unchallenged. [less ▲]

This study examined 3- and 4-year-old preschoolers' ability to learn proper names containing familiar descriptions. Children saw a novel creature with a familiar property (it was red) and heard either an adjective ("This is a red one") or a descriptive proper name ("This is Mr. Red"). The creature was then transformed, losing the property (e.g., it became green). Children had to extend the word to either the transformed original creature or a new creature bearing the original property (another red creature). Children, especially 4-year-olds, extended the adjective to the new creature but were significantly more likely to extend the proper name to the original creature. Lexical form class cues provided potent information about word meaning, directing preschoolers to reinterpret familiar descriptive terms (adjectives) as homophonic terms designating unique individuals (proper names).

The state of Minas Gérais, Brazil, contains numerous karsts booth inside carbonated and non carbonated rocks. Différent caves are found in quartzite and Itaberite formations (Banded Iron formation). The term karst is used in the meaning of "any features of the classical karst morphology (caves, sink-holes, lapies...) where dissolution plays the main genetically action and this in any kind of rocks". In some areas, lapiaz and kamenitza affect wide landscapes (area of Diamantina, Natural Parc of Rio Preto). Several caves are found and some of these are several kilomeetres long (grutta do Bromelias, Natural Parc of Ibitipoca). Inside caves, we found numerous forms like dissolution alveoli, spelothems, .... Many times, the cave sides and solutional forms are covered by crust which solidify a very crumbly quartzite. Différent morphologies show an primary solutional stage of the rocks before a physical erosional stage which destroy the earliest forms (piping, river érosion, collapsing). [less ▲]

We herein report on our efforts to improve the mapping resolution of a QTL with major effect on milk yield and composition that was previously mapped to bovine chromosome 20. By using a denser chromosome 20 marker map and by exploiting linkage disequilibrium using two distinct approaches, we provide strong evidence that a chromosome segment including the gene coding for the growth hormone receptor accounts for at least part of the chromosome 20 QTL effect. By sequencing individuals with known QTL genotype, we identify an F to Y substitution in the transmembrane domain of the growth hormone receptor gene that is associated with a strong effect on milk yield and composition in the general population.
