We report first-principles density-functional pseudopotential calculations on the atomic structures, electronic properties, and band offsets of BaO/BaTiO3 and SrO/SrTiO3 nanosized heterojunctions grown on top of a silicon substrate. The density of states at the junction does not reveal any electronic induced interface states. A dominant perovskite character is found at the interface layer. The tunability of the band offset with the strain conditions imposed by the substrate is studied. Using previously reported theoretical data available for Si/SrO, Si/BaO, SrTiO3/Pt, and BaTiO3/SrRuO3 interfaces we extrapolate the band alignments along two gate stacks of technological interest: Si/SrO/SrTiO3/Pt and Si/BaO/BaTiO3/SrRuO3 heterostructures.

The modulatory role of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) on heart contraction, relaxation and rate is examined in light of recent studies using genetic deletion or overexpression in mice under specific conditions. Unstressed eNOS-/- hearts in basal conditions exhibit a normal inotropic and lusitropic function, with either decreased or unchanged heart rate. Under stimulation with catecholamines, eNOS-/- mice predominantly show a potentiation in their beta-adrenergic inotropic and lusitropic responsiveness. A similar phenotype is observed in beta 3-adrenoceptor deficient mice, pointing to a key role of this receptor subtype for eNOS coupling. The effect of eNOS on the muscarinic cholinergic modulation of cardiac function probably operates in conjunction with other NO-independent mechanisms, the persistence of which may explain the apparent dispensability of this isoform for the effect of acetylcholine in some eNOS-/- mouse strains. eNOS-/- hearts submitted to short term ischaemia-reperfusion exhibit variable alterations in systolic and diastolic function and infarct size, while those submitted to myocardial infarction present a worsened ventricular remodelling, increased 1 month mortality and loss of benefit from ACE inhibitor or angiotensin II type I receptor antagonist therapy. Although non-conditional eNOS gene deletion may engender phenotypic adaptations (e.g. ventricular hypertrophy resulting from chronic hypertension, or upregulation of the other NOS isoforms) potentially confounding the interpretation of comparative studies, the use of eNOS-/- mice has undoubtedly advanced (and will probably continue to improve) our understanding of the complex role of eNOS (in conjunction with the other NOSs) in the regulation of cardiac function. The challenge is now to confirm the emerging paradigms in human cardiac physiology and hopefully translate them into therapy. [less ▲]

Diabetic nephropathy is one of the leading causes of end-stage renal failure in western countries. This disease develops over several years. Early stages, if they are detected in time, can lead to preventive treatment at a moment when the disease is still reversible. This paper reviews the main primary and secondary preventive measures that have been proven efficacious. Those are essentially the optimal treatment of hyperglycaemia and hypertension, and probably the use of agents that specifically block the renin-angiotensin axis. We briefly discuss the results of the main studies that have led to those conclusions. [less ▲]

Chalk is the constituent material of numerous oil reservoirs in North Sea. The mechanical behaviour of a saturated chalk has been largely studied. However, different aspects of its behaviour are not yet well understood: material characteristics depend on the saturating fluids and chalk response is time-dependent. This paper proposes the PASACHALK numerical model: an elasto-plastic constitutive law is presented, which reproduces the different plastic mechanisms of the chalk (pore collapse and shear failure) and the influence of pore fluids. The water sensitivity of this soft rock is explained by the existence of suction effects in chalk. Finally, a simulation of a hypothetical reservoir is proposed to show the response of the elasto-plastic model during depletion phase and water injection phase. [less ▲]

The paper proposes two numerical models ot the mechanical behaviour of chalk. First, an elasto-plastic constitutive law reproduces the different plastic mechanisms of the chalk and the influence of pore fluids by introducing the concept of suction. Secondly, a model able to reproduce time dependence behaviour. Eventually, the paper gives a simulation of an academic reservoir during depletion and waterflooding phase. [less ▲]

We herein describe the fine mapping of an imprinted QTL with major effect on muscle mass that was previously assigned to distal SSC2p in the pig. The proposed approach exploits linkage disequilibrium in combination with QTL genotyping by marker-assisted segregation analysis. By identifying a haplotype shared by all "Q" chromosomes, we map the QTL to an approximately 250-kb chromosome segment containing INS and IGF2 as the only known paternally expressed genes. This considerably reinforces the candidacy of these genes, justifying their detailed analysis. [less ▲]
