Paedomorphosis, in which individuals retain ancestral characteristics in the adult stage, is widespread in newts and salamanders and is suspected to play an important role in evolution. In some species, paedomorphosis is facultative with some individuals skipping the metamorphic stage. Dimorphic populations of the Alpine newt inhabit a large variety of aquatic habitats such as permanent lakes and temporary ponds. The aim of this study was to determine the benefits of the alternatives in these different habitats. To this end, I focused on resource partitioning, energy intake, body condition and age structures in different populations composed of the two morphs. In deep lakes, there was a substantial trophic differentiation between morphs. Paedomorphs primarily preyed on plankton whereas metamorphs foraged on terrestrial invertebrates that fell to the water surface. By reducing competition, resource partitioning may contribute to the coexistence of the alternative morphs in heterogeneous habitats. On the contrary, in a small pond, resource use was similar in the two morphs. Maturity is reached earlier in the paedomorphs from this small pond than in metamorphs (progenetic process), favoring then a rapid turn-over of the population, while similar gonadal development was observed in one of the deep lakes (neotenic process). Body condition was generally higher in paedomorphs than in metamorphs in each studied population. These results show that facultative paedomorphosis is adaptive in varied habitats, but that different factors may favor it depending of the characteristics of the environment. Paedomorphic phenotypes can thus be selected in low altitude productive ponds and high altitude oligotrophic lakes. [less ▲]

Src homology domain 2-containing inositol 5-phosphatases 1 and 2 (SHIP1 and SHIP2) are capable of dephosphorylating the second messenger PtdIns(3,4,5) P3 (phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate) and interacting with several signalling proteins. SHIP1 is essentially expressed in haematopoietic cells, whereas SHIP2, a closely related enzyme, is ubiquitous. In the present study, we show that SHIP1 and SHIP2 are expressed as functional PtdIns(3,4,5) P3 5-phosphatases in human blood platelets and are capable of interacting when these two lipid phosphatases are co-expressed, either naturally (platelets and A20 B lymphoma cells) or artificially (COS-7 cells). Using COS-7 cells transfected with deletion mutants of SHIP2, we demonstrate that the Src homology domain 2 of SHIP2 is the minimal and sufficient protein motif responsible for the interaction between the two phosphatases. These results prompted us to investigate the relative importance of SHIP1 and SHIP2 in the control of PtdIns(3,4,5) P3 levels in platelets using homozygous or heterozygous SHIP1- or SHIP2-deficient mice. Our results strongly suggest that SHIP1, rather than SHIP2, plays a major role in controlling PtdIns(3,4,5) P3 levels in response to thrombin or collagen activation of mouse blood platelets [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 ▲]

The development of new vaccines, containing protective antigens that are more and more well characterized, is hindered by the lack of adjuvants able both to amplify immune response and to control it qualitatively. A number of tumors and infectious diseases could be treated with adjuvant preparations that would adequately intensify and modulate specific immune response; in particular, the possibility to specifically induce a Th1 response seems to be of paramount importance for the prevention and for the cure of these diseases. Furthermore, these adjuvants must be as safe as possible, not only for commercial applications, but also in the respect of laboratory animals' welfare. This review describes the different adjuvants presently used in vaccinology, classifying them following their chemical nature and presenting for each category the knowledge concerning their activity and toxicity.

Cet ouvrage comporte une grammaire du grec ancien, la plus complète en langue française qui soit disponible à présent. Les faits de grammaire, morphologie et syntaxe, y sont justifiés dans la perspective de l’évolution linguistique du grec. Chacun des chapitres est accompagné d’un vocabulaire dont les mots sont rapprochés, là où c’est possible, du ou des termes français correspondants. Ce vocabulaire comporte quelque 2500 mots. A la suite de chaque chapitre, des exercices sont proposés qui permettent d’ utiliser tous les mots de vocabulaire enseignés. Ces exercices figurent à la fois en français et en grec, à des pages différentes, de telle sorte qu’un élève puisse par lui-même vérifier ses connaissances. Dès que la chose est possible, des extraits des meilleurs auteurs classiques sont donnés à traduire, avec une introduction, le vocabulaire et les explications grammaticales indispensables, un commentaire et une traduction. L’ouvrage comporte encore six annexes (voir Volume 2). [less ▲]

In this paper, a graph partitioning problem that arises in the design of SONET/SDH networks is defined and formalized. Approximation algorithms with performance guarantees are presented. To solve this problem efficiently in practice, fast greedy algorithms and a tabu-search method are proposed and analyzed by means of an experimental study. [less ▲]
