Chemical coagulation applied for colour removal from dye bearing solutions has been investigated from point of view of surface charge progression. Two commercially used dyes, i.e. CI Acid Blue 113 and CI Disperse Blue 26 have been tested, employing three common coagulants: alum, aluminium chloride and ferric chloride. Coagulant type and dose level and pH of the dye solution have been studied as process parameters affecting surface charge and degree of colour removal after filtration of coagulated dye. It has been found, that both dyes could be almost completely removed with the tested coagulants, when supplied however at different dosages. From one side, the correlation between surface charge and colour removal suggests that destabilization of colour colloids occurs as a result of charge neutralization followed by removal by filtration. From other side, the lack of re-stabilization and continued high colour removal even at increased coagulant dosages implies enmeshment of destabilized dye colloids into the hydroxy flocs/precipitates of metal coagulant by “sweep coagulation”. Finally, flocs from selected sludge samples have been examined for particle size and shape by image analysis and their key characteristics summarised [less ▲]

The present study was aimed at evaluating whether the very high accuracy of memory for familiar faces, demonstrated by Ge et al (2003, Perception 32 601-614) with a very familiar famous person, generalises to faces of personally known individuals. The accuracy of participants' perceptual memory for a close colleague's face and for their own face was evaluated by presenting original and manipulated pictures of these two targets. The manipulation consisted of increasing or decreasing the interocular distance. As in Ge et al's study, results indicated that proportions of correct recognition of the original faces, and just noticeable differences for the detection of alterations in the recognition task, were not significantly different from the corresponding measures in a perceptual discrimination task performed by a sample of participants who did not know the target persons at all. High accuracy of memory generalises to faces of personally known individuals [less ▲]

Soil organic carbon (SOC) represents one of the major pools in the global C cycle. Therefore, even small changes in SOC stocks cause important CO, fluxes between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere. However, SOC stocks are difficult to quantify accurately due to their high spatial variability. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the potential of Imaging Spectroscopy (IS) using the Compact Airborne Spectrographic Imager (CASI; 405-950 nm) and field spectroscopy with an Analytical Spectral Devices spectrometer (ASD; 350-2500 nm) to measure SOC content in heterogeneous agricultural soils. We used both stepwise and partial least square (PLS) regression analysis to relate spectral measurements to SOC contents. Standard Error of Prediction (SEP) for the ASD ranged from 2.4 to 3.3 g C kg(-1) depending on soil moisture content of the surface layer. Imaging spectroscopy performed poorly, mainly due to the narrow spectral range of the CASI. Tests using both the CASI and the Shortwave infrared Airborne Spectrographic Imager (SASI; 900-2500 nm) showed better results. The variation in soil texture and soil moisture content degrades the spectral response to SOC contents. Currently, SEP allows to detect a SOC stock change of 7.2-9.9 Mg C ha(-1) in the upper 30 cm of the soil, and is therefore still somewhat high in comparison with changes in SOC stocks as a result of management or land conversion (0.34.9 Mg C ha(-1) yr(-1)). A detailed SOC maps produced by IS reflected the patterns in SOC contents due to the recent conversion from grassland to cropland. [less ▲]

Epidemiologic studies have shown a clear comorbidity between migraine with aura and a patent foramen ovale (PFO). Under the age of 55, migraine with aura is a risk factor for ischemic stroke and a proportion of the latter is due to a PFO. It remains to be determined whether PFO is causally related to migraine attacks, or is a fortuitous association due to common genetic factors. Cortical spreading depression which is the underlying mechanism of the migrainous aura, could be favoured by a PFO. Several retrospective and uncontrolled studies suggest that percutaneous closure of a PFO for stroke or decompression illness in divers reduces frequency of migraine attacks with, but also without aura. Multicentric, prospective and controlled trials of this intervention in migraineurs are underway or in preparation. As long as their results are not known, there is no rationale for proposing PFO closure for migraine. [less ▲]

L’objectif de la présente étude a été la caractérisation des profils plasmatiques de la protéine associée à la gestation (PAG) et de la progestérone au cours de la gestation et deux semaines après le part chez la race Ouled Djellal. Vingt-cinq brebis ont été prélevées hebdomadairement après synchronisation des chaleurs et monte naturelle. Les concentrations de PAG et de progestérone ont été déterminées par dosage radio-immunologique. Deux femelles n’ont pas été fécondées tandis que 23 ont eu des gestations considérées comme normales (n=18) ou pathologiques (n=5). Chez 18 brebis (12 gestations simples et 6 multiples), les concentrations de PAG et de progestérone ont été significativement influencées par le stade de la gestation (P<0.0001) et non par le nombre de fœtus. Des profils individuels ont été décrits chez 7 brebis dont 3 femelles ayant eu des pertes embryonnaires, et 2 brebis ayant avorté (66e et 110e jours), et enfin chez 2 brebis ayant donné naissance à terme chacune à un agneau vivant et expulsé au moment de la mise-bas 1 ou 2 fœtus momifié(s). Les concentrations en PAG ont été plus faibles chez les femelles ayant de fœtus momifiés en parallèle avec des fœtus vivants. [less ▲]

Genetical metabolomics [metabolite profiling combined with quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis] has been proposed as a new tool to identify loci that control metabolite abundances. This concept was evaluated in a case study with the model tree Populus. Using HPLC, the peak abundances were analyzed of 15 closely related flavonoids present in apical tissues of two full-sib poplar families, Populus deltoides cv. S9-2 x P. nigra cv. Ghoy and P. deltoides cv. S9-2 x P. trichocarpa cv. V24, and correlation and QTL analysis were used to detect flux control points in flavonoid biosynthesis. Four robust metabolite quantitative trait loci (mQTL), associated with rate-limiting steps in flavonoid biosynthesis, were mapped. Each mQTL was involved in the flux control to one or two flavonoids. Based on the identities of the affected metabolites and the flavonoid pathway structure, a tentative function was assigned to three of these mQTL, and the corresponding candidate genes were mapped. The data indicate that the combination of metabolite profiling with QTL analysis is a valuable tool to identify control points in a complex metabolic pathway of closely related compounds. [less ▲]
