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 ▲]

An original image analysis method is presented to characterize multi-walled carbon nanotubes from transmission electron microscopy images. The analysis is performed in three steps: (i) image preprocessing in order to isolate the nanotubes from the background, (ii) image segmentation, aiming at keeping only the measurable sections of nanotubes, and finally (iii) tube characteristics measurement. The measurement is based on a Lambert-like electron absorption law and is performed on the original gray level image itself. Two geometrical and one physical characteristics are determined for each tube, namely, its outer and inner radius and a linear electron absorption coefficient. The method is illustrated by comparing a pristine and an annealed carbon nanotube samples. The compaction of the tube walls during annealing is shown to result from a lowering of the external radius while the inner radius is left unchanged. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

Numerous studies have been directed towards the synthesis of early-late heterobimetallic complexes. Surprisingly, only few reports have been reported about their catalytic behaviour. However, their potential in homogeneous catalysis is enormous. Indeed, a co-operative work by the two metal centres in the complex may lead to new catalytic systems with unique reactivity. The Dijon’s team has concentrated their efforts on the synthesis and study of heterobimetallic complexes in which both metal fragments are known for their catalytic activity. Titanocenes are of considerable interest as catalysts for the polymerisation of a-olefins. The catalytic performance of RuCl2(arene) complexes (1) has been demonstrated in different reactions, including olefin metathesis and atom transfer radical polymerisation (ATRP). In attempts to examine such type of catalytic systems, complexation of bent titanocene metallo-ligands by the [RuCl2(p-cymene)]2 dimer is currently investigated. [less ▲]

Le présent Courrier hebdomadaire a pour objet l’analyse de l’intégration des questions de défense nationale et européenne au sein des préoccupations des partis politiques belges. Cette analyse comprend deux volets. Le premier examine les activités parlementaires en rapport avec les affaires militaires belges et européennes. Nous procéderons, plus précisément, à l’analyse des travaux conduits par la commission de la Défense nationale de la Chambre au cours de la dernière législature. Le second repose sur un examen des propositions relatives à la défense belge et européenne (politique européenne de sécurité et de défense) au sein des programmes politiques des partis représentés au Parlement fédéral dans la perspective des élections législatives du 18 mai 2003. L’objet de cette étude est de déceler les lieux de convergences et de divergences entre les formations politiques du pays (mise à l’agenda politique des partis, définition des priorités, visions prospectives, etc.). Il s’est agi, plus exactement, de relever les principales thématiques abordées par les partis en matière de défense nationale et européenne. En effet, à l’instar d’un grand nombre de compétences régaliennes, le secteur de la défense constitue un lieu d’intersection de multiples problématiques de type économique, social, budgétaire, environnemental et politique au sens propre du terme. En outre, le concept même de défense peut être décliné en une variété de sous-thèmes qui lui sont constitutifs (structure de forces, choix des systèmes d’armes et des matériels, définition des tâches et missions, statut du personnel, intégration au sein des enceintes multilatérales, spécialisation,…). Il est, enfin, utile de préciser que cette étude ne prend en compte ni les divers documents internes (à diffusion publique ou restreinte), ni les notes de travail produites par les partis, ni les études spécialisées sur la place de la Belgique en matière de sécurité européenne. Ce choix a été opéré à dessein. Il s’agit, en effet, de s’intéresser aux seules dispositions programmatiques spécifiquement adressées à l’ensemble des concitoyens dans le cadre de travaux parlementaires et d’un choix électoral donné. Aussi, cette étude ne peut être assimilée à un bilan exhaustif des positions et conceptions des partis en la matière ; il est plutôt un indicateur des messages que les formations politiques entendent transmettre aux citoyens [less ▲]

The present study was undertaken to investigate to what extent pregnancy diagnoses made by transrectal ultrasonography could be confirmed by measurements of plasma concentration of ovine pregnancy-associated glycoproteins (ovPAG). A total of 424 Awassi x Merino ewes were synchronized for estrus and examined by transrectal ultrasonography. In Experiment 1, the ewes (n = 156) were repeatedly scanned in a standing position on d 29, 36 and 50 of gestation. Similarly, the ewes (n = 268) in Experiment 2 were scanned on d 24, 29 and 34 of gestation, but these ewes were fasted for 12 h prior to the examination and the abdominal wall of each animal was lifted up by the hands of the assistant during the scanning. Blood samples were withdrawn after each transrectal ultrasonographic examination in both experiments. Ovine PAG concentrations were measured in plasma by a heterologous radioimmunoassay and the cut-off value for pregnancy was greater than or equal to 1 ng.mL(-1). Based on the lambing performance, in Experiment 1, altogether 47 false negative and 38 false positive diagnoses were made by transrectal ultrasonography in 24 and 33 ewes, respectively between d 29 and 50 of gestation. In Experiment 2, altogether 8 false negative and 13 false positive diagnoses both were made in 7 ewes between d 24 and 34 of gestation. In both experiments, all ewes with false negative diagnoses had ovPAG concentrations higher than the threshold level for pregnancy diagnosis and all ewes with false positive diagnoses had ovPAG concentrations lower than the threshold of pregnancy. Furthermore, by the PAG-RIA test all lambed or aborted ewes (n = 63) were correctly diagnosed as pregnant and with three exceptions, all non-lambed ewes (n = 361) were correctly diagnosed as non-pregnant during the examined periods of both experiments.
