We sequenced 965 base pairs of the mitochondrial DNA cytochrome b from 102 woodmice (Apodemus sylvaticus) collected from 40 European localities. The aims of the study were to answer the following questions. (i) Did the Mediterranean peninsulas play a role as refuge for woodmice? (ii) Is genetic variability of A. sylvaticus higher in the Mediterranean region compared with northern Europe? (iii) Are the patterns of the postglacial colonization of Europe by woodmice similar to those presently recognized for other European species? The results provide a clear picture of the impact of the Quaternary glaciations on the genetic and geographical structure of the woodmouse. Our analyses indicate a higher genetic variability of woodmice in the Mediterranean peninsulas compared to northern Europe, suggesting a role of the former as refuge regions for this small mammal. An original pattern of postglacial colonization is proposed where the Iberian and southern France refuge populations colonized almost all European regions. The Sicilian population appears to be very differentiated and highly variable. This emphasizes the importance of this island as a 'hot spot' for the intraspecific genetic diversity of the woodmouse. Finally, woodmice in North Africa originated from southwestern Europe, most probably as a result of a recent anthropogenic introduction. [less ▲]

The filamentous cyanobacterium Anabaena (Nostoc) sp. strain PCC 7120 maintains a genome that is divided into a 6.4-Mb chromosome, three large plasmids of more that 100 kb, two medium-sized plasmids of 55 and 40 kb, and a 5.5-kb plasmid. Plasmid copy number can be dynamic in some cyanobacterial species, and the genes that regulate this process have not been characterized. Here we show that mutations in an open reading frame, all1076, reduce the numbers of copies per chromosome of several plasmids. In a mutant strain, plasmids pCC7120delta and pCC7120zeta are both reduced to less than 50% of their wild-type levels. The exogenous pDU1-based plasmid pAM1691 is reduced to less than 25% of its wild-type level, and the plasmid is rapidly lost. The peptide encoded by all1076 shows similarity to members of the GntR family of transcriptional regulators. Phylogenetic analysis reveals a new domain topology within the GntR family. PlmA homologs, all coming from cyanobacterial species, form a new subfamily that is distinct from the previously identified subfamilies. The all1076 locus, named plmA, regulates plasmid maintenance functions in Anabaena sp. strain PCC 7120. [less ▲]

Monte Carlo experiments are performed to compare twenty estimators or error rates in discriminant analysis in the case of two populations and linear classification rule. Several distributions (normal, chi-square and beta) have been considered. Estimators eOS (for actual and expected error rate) and eB (for optimal error rate) are the best, except for distributions very different from normal distributions. The e632 estimator is the best non parametric estimator. This estimator is better than parmetric estimators for distributions very different from normal distributions. [less ▲]

Two complementary approaches of steel continuous casting modelling using the finite element code LAGAMINE have been developed in the M&S Department. The first one (at a macroscopic scale) describes the whole continuous casting process, from the free surface in the mould and through the entire machine, including thermal and mechanical behaviour of the steel. The second approach focuses on the prediction of cracks and is developed at grain scale. We present in this paper a description of the context in which the study started, the description of the macroscopic approach and some results. [less ▲]

Models of alpha Cen A & B have been computed using the masses determined by Pourbaix et al. (2002) and the data derived from the spectroscopic analysis of Neuforge and Magain (1997). The seismological data obtained by Bouchy and Carrier (2001, 2002) do help improve our knowledge of the evolutionary status of the system. All the constraints are satisfied with a model which gives an age of about 6 Gyr for the binary. [less ▲]

Inelastic neutron scattering measurements on several Tl filled skutterudites (Tl0.5Co3.5Fe0.5Sb12, Tl0.8Co3FeSb12, and Tl0.8Co4Sb11Sn) all show a sharp peak in the vibrational density of states at 57 +/- 2 K, which is absent in the unfilled skutterudite CoSb3. Heat capacity measurements on Tl0.8Co4Sb11Sn as compared to CoSb3 are consistent with the presence of a localized vibrational mode associated with the "rattling" thallium atoms in this filled skutterudite compound. Both results are well described by a localized Einstein mode model with an Einstein temperature Theta(E) of 53 +/- 1 K. These data provide perhaps the clearest example of local mode behavior in a concentrated metallic system. [less ▲]

The October 2000 elections did constitute a landmark for the political participation of immigrant origin citizens in the Brussels Capital Region. There was a remarkable increase of elected Belgian politicians of non-EU–mainly Moroccan–origin. In this contribution we want to discuss the changing patterns of political participation of immigrant origin citizens in the Brussels Capital Region as seen in the most recent local elections. We contextualize the electoral success of Turkish and (mainly) Moroccan politicians and the poor involvement of EU citizens in the recent elections. To this purpose, we also discuss the political situation in the bilingual region of Brussels, Belgian citizenship law and regulations for political participation of foreign residents. [less ▲]

The Late-Glacial - Holocene transition, around 13,000 to 8,000 years ago, is the world theatre of an ample climatic upsetting associated to a deep change of the landscapes. Around the rock-shelter of Rochedane, an archaeological site from the French Jura, the climate shifts from peri-glacial to temperate, open environment becomes progressively closed and the faunal assemblages are consequently strongly modified. In order to understand the evolutionary mechanisms implied and their different aspects, a multidisciplinary survey has been led on bones from Red Deer, Cervus elaphus, found in the shelter associated with remains of lithic industry and prehistoric art let by the hunters-gatherers during this unstable time. Isotopic geochemistry has already showed that during this period, the habitat and the diet of deers changed. Moreover, morphological studies is demonstrating that, in the same way, the size of deers seems to decrease. To complete both studies, a palaeogenetic approach was then developed to test two different alternative: do the deers found come from a single population that adapts to new ecological conditions or instead do they correspond to a succession of different populations depending on environmental conditions? The results obtained up to now do not allow to conclude between both hypotheses. However, it was demonstrated that it was possible to access authentic mitochondrial DNA sequences (control region, cytochrome b) from these prehistoric bones and to discriminate the deers of Rochedane to the individual level. Thus, this approach is promising in order to decipher in the future the possible ties between environmental, morphological and genetic changes. [less ▲]

Because symptoms associated with hypomagnesia are highly aspecific, this ionic abnormality is rarely searched for although it could be present in as much as 20 % of the population. The mode of correction (oral or intravenous) depends on the etiology, severity and clinical consequences of hypomagnesemia. Significant hypermagnesemia only occurs in the presence of renal insufficiency and/or acute excess administration, mainly by the intravenous route. If interruption of administration does not suffice, renal dialysis might become necessary to quickly correct the magnesemium serum levels. [less ▲]
