A homologous series of surfactins containing β-hydroxy fatty acids having 13, 14, or 15 carbon atoms were isolated from the supernatant of Bacillus subtilis strain S499 cultures. Their surface-active properties at the air-water interface were then evaluated. Dynamic surface tension data were analyzed by the relaxation function γt=γm+(γo−γm)/[1+(t/t*)n]. Based on various parameters t*, n, vmax, γm calculated from this equation, the dynamic surface properties of surfactin were found to depend on both bulk concentration and hydrophobic character of the alkyl chain. At low concentrations of surfactin, the dynamic surface tension (γd) decreased with increasing carbon atom number of the surfactin alkyl chain (n=13 to 15). However, at high concentrations, the maximum decrease of 41-4 was achieved by surfactin-C14. In contrast, more strongly hydrophobic alkyl chains in surfactins always enhanced their ability in reducing the equilibrium surface tensions and their aptitude in forming micelles. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of glucosamine sulfate on long-term symptoms and structure progression in postmenopausal women with knee osteoarthritis (OA). DESIGN: This study consisted of a preplanned combination of two three-year, randomized, placebo-controlled, prospective, independent studies evaluating the effect of glucosamine sulfate on symptoms and structure modification in OA and post-hoc analysis of the results obtained in postmenopausal women with knee OA. Minimal joint space width was assessed at baseline and after 3 years from standing anteroposterior knee radiographs. Symptoms were scored by the algo-functional WOMAC index at baseline and after 3 years. All primary statistical analyses were performed in intention-to-treat, comparing joint space width and WOMAC changes between groups by ANOVA. RESULTS: Of 414 participants randomized in the two studies, 319 were postmenopausal women. At baseline, glucosamine sulfate and placebo groups were comparable for demographic and disease characteristics, both in the general population and in the postmenopausal women subset. After 3 years, postmenopausal participants in the glucosamine sulfate group showed no joint space narrowing [joint space change of +0.003 mm (95% CI, -0.09 to 0.11)], whereas participants in the placebo group experienced a narrowing of -0.33 mm (95% CI, -0.44 to -0.22; P < 0.0001 between the two groups). Percent changes after 3 years in the WOMAC index showed an improvement in the glucosamine sulfate group [-14.1% (95%, -22.2 to -5.9)] and a trend for worsening in the placebo group (5.4% (95% CI, -4.9 to 15.7) (P = 0.003 between the two groups). CONCLUSION: This analysis, focusing on a large cohort of postmenopausal women, demonstrated for the first time that a pharmacological intervention for OA has a disease-modifying effect in this particular population, the most frequently affected by knee OA.

Students’ motivation is a major concern of physical education teachers as well as it interest the others educators. Understanding of that complex variable increased during the last two decades. In the physical education domain, many studies were focused on isolated variables related to motivation and on their relationship with pupils’ behaviours. More recently, qualitative researches were conducted to enter in the class specificity and to integrate the complexity and diversity of the variables that influence students’ motivations. Combining questionnaires interviews and observation, some researchers have confirmed that student’s motivation depends on a package of dispositional as well as individual and collective situational factors. They pointed out also the determining role of the teacher in the development of a motivated class climate. This paper will describe a couple of qualitative studies designed to analyse students’ motivation and will underline their contribution in the understanding of the phenomena related to the development of motivation by students. Moreover, as teachers need research directly focused to their concerns, we must now provide them more support helping them to apply research data. The action research design is proposed as an appropriate approach in that way. The description of a pilot action research focused on the improvement of the students’ motivation in a secondary school level girls class will also proposed. The main results should provide the starting point of a reflective process about the strategies that teachers could plan on the gym. As it has been underlined above, the goal of the paper was to share useful information with practitioners and researchers and to encourage them to involve themselves in personal research on students’ motivation.

Site index curves were developed for Alnus glutinosa (L.) Gaertn. in southern Belgium. Five models of Duplat and Tran-Ha were fitted to a data set of 15 stem analyses divided into two data subsets clearly characterized by different height growth patterns. Model III was found to fit data sets best, both separately and combined. Various statistical comparisons made between the two curve sets underline shape variations corresponding to different soil conditions. A comparison between Belgian and other European curves highlights the effect of the soil on growth curve shape, which is at least as important as that of climatic factors. However, for practical reasons, the use of a general global model, which does not specifically take into account differences in height growth patterns, is satisfactory for productivity evaluation and is recommended for forest management.
