A six-year-old, male dobermann was presented with a history of dyspnoea and bouts of coughing. Radiography and computed tomography of the thorax showed pleural effusion and a well-circumscribed, calcified mass of 10 cm in diameter, appearing to originate from the left first rib. Thoracocentesis revealed that the pleural fluid was chylous in nature. An inclsional biopsy was performed, which gave a histological diagnosis of chondroma. Resolution of the chylothorax after en-bloc surgical removal of the tumour suggested that the rib tumour was the initiating cause of the chylothorax. Seventeen months later, rib neoplasia recurred without pleural effusion, and was removed successfully. To the authors' knowledge, rib chondroma, which is an unusual tumour in dogs, has not been previously documented as a cause of chylothorax. [less ▲]

beta-Lactamase and penicillin-binding protein PBP2' mediate staphylococcal resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics, which are otherwise highly clinically effective. Two repressors (BlaI and MecI) regulate expression of these inducible proteins. Here, we present the first solution structure of the 82 amino acid residue DNA-binding domain of Bacillus licheniformis BlaI which is very similar in primary sequence to the medically significant Staphyloccocal BlaI and MecI proteins. This structure is composed of a compact core of three alpha-helices and a three-stranded beta-sheet typical of the winged helix protein (WHP) family. The protein/DNA complex was studied by NMR chemical shift comparison between the free and complexed forms of BlaI. Residues involved in DNA interaction were identified and a WHP canonical model of interaction with the operators is proposed. In this model, specific contacts occur between the base-pairs of the TACA motif and conserved amino acid residues of the repressor helix H3. These results help toward understanding the repression and induction mechanism of the genes coding for beta-lactamase and PBP2'. [less ▲]

PROBLEM: The characterization of lymphocytes issued from squamous intraepithelial lesions (SIL) and from the transformation zone (TZ), where the majority of SIL occur, is important to understand the role of immunity in SIL development. METHOD OF STUDY: We compared lymphocyte populations of the TZ and SIL with those of normal exocervix, using a technique allowing for the isolation of lymphocytes, either from the epithelium or from the underlying stroma of small biopsies. RESULTS: The majority of cells derived from the epithelium of all biopsies were CD8+ T cells. Some SIL-derived cultures were characterized by an increased proportion of activated TCRgammadelta+. The production of the immunosuppressive cytokine IL10 was significantly higher in lymphocyte cultures from the normal TZ in comparison with the exocervix. A decreased percentage of effector T cells was observed in cultures derived from the stroma of normal TZ (TCRgammadelta+) or SIL (CD8+) in comparison with the exocervix. CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that a low proportion of effector T cells and IL10 production could contribute to the predisposition of the TZ to the development of SIL and to the progression of SIL to cervical cancer.

Dom Gabriel Gerberon (1628-1711) publie en 1688 un petit ouvrage in-12 intitulé La Règle des mœurs contre les fausses maximes de la morale corrompue. Ce volume s’intègre dans la longue polémique autour de la casuistique et du probabilisme. Il défend vigoureusement la position des rigoristes, en parfait accord avec l’argumentation pascalienne et port-royaliste. Mais le but que poursuit Gerberon dans son ouvrage n’est pas de rédiger un abrégé de morale pratique. L’auteur entend plutôt analyser de manière critique les différents principes, critères et moyens par lesquels les individus parviennent à la connaissance et à l’application des principes de morale. Gerberon met en évidence le rôle central de la conscience dans ce processus et s’attache à en détailler les tenants et les aboutissants. Au cours de son exposé, qui constitue un plaidoyer pour les droits de la conscience, il s’appuye sur les analyses thomistes classiques, mais en les rappelant dans un contexte polémique au sein d’un siècle absolutiste, il développe un discours audacieux, dont le caractère individualiste résonne d’accents port-royalistes.

Several species of Doryphorina leaf beetles from Central- and South America produce oleanane triterpene glycosides in their defensive glands. The presence of pentacyclic triterpenes in insects is intriguing since they lack the key enzymes necessary to synthesize these compounds. Since beta-amyrin is a common constituent of leaf waxes, we hypothesized that these leaf beetles use this compound as a precursor to their oleanane glycosides. To test this hypothesis we first confirmed the presence of beta-amyrin in Ipomoea batatas, the food plant of Platyphora kollari. Next, adults of P. kollari were fed for 10 days with I. batatas leaf disks painted with a solution of [2,2,3-H-2(3)]beta-amyrin ([2,2,3-H-2(3)]-1). The secretion from their defensive glands was collected and analyzed by HPLC-ESIMS. The results demonstrated that the secretion of beetles fed with an amount of [2,2,3-H-2(3)]beta-amyrin corresponding to the quantity of unlabeled (natural) beta-amyrin present in the leaf disks contained on average 5.1% of [2,2,3-H-2(3)]-3-O-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-->4)-beta-D-glucuronopyranosyl-hederagenin ([2,2,3-H-2(3)]-2), whereas the secretions of beetles fed with 10 times this amount of [2,2,3-H-2(3)]beta-amyrin contained on average 23.9% of [2,2,3-H-2(3)]-2. In both series of experiments, the percentage of labeled versus unlabeled triterpene glycoside in the secretion was positively correlated with the amount of deuterated beta-amyrin ingested. These results demonstrate for the first time that some leaf beetles are able to metabolize a widespread triterpenic constituent of leaf wax into more complex glycosides that are stored in their defensive glands.

The Tellnes ilmenite deposit, a world class titanium deposit, occurs in the Ana-Sira anorthosite (Rogaland anorthosite province, South Norway). It is mainly made up of an ilmenite-rich norite that has been previously interpreted as injected in a crystal mush state, in a weakness zone of the enclosing anorthosite. This emplacement mechanism has produced a faint orientation in the ore due to the flow of the mush. The internal flow structure of the orebody is studied here using the low-field anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) method. Partial anhysteretic remanent magnetization (pAARM) indicates that coarse magnetite is the main mineral responsible for the magnetic fabric. Parallelism of the magnetic fabric with the shape-preferred orientation of the ore-forming minerals is checked using image analysis (IA) from oriented sections (intercept method). Interpretation of the AMS data verified by pAARM and IA, provides information on the magmatic foliation and lineation. Emplacement flow of the ilmenite norite crystal mush occurred in the direction of the orebody, parallel to its walls, and with an average SE 18degrees plunge. The feeder zone was likely situated below a network of veins on the SE end of the orebody. The sickle-shaped outcrop of the deposit suggests a transcurrent, dextral opening of a WNW-ESE-striking weakness zone across the anorthosite pluton. (C) 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
