In many plants, flowering is promoted by a long exposure to cold, a process known as ‘vernalisation’. In Arabidopsis, the vernalisation pathway was shown to promote flowering via the repression of the FLOWERING LOCUS C (FLC) gene, which encodes a repressor of flowering. As far as we know, the genetical control of flowering is conserved among Brassicaceae, and we reported elsewhere cloning of flowering times genes of the photoperiodic pathway in Sinapis alba, based on sequence similarity with Arabidopsis. However, little is known about vernalisation in Sinapis. We therefore undertook a physiological and molecular study of this process. Plants of Sinapis were grown in non inductive short days and vernalised at 7°C, at the seedling stage. Vernalisation was found to accelerate flowering and an increasing effect was observed for vernalisation treatments longer than 2 weeks. We cloned an FLC-like sequence (SaFLC) by screening a cDNA library, and used it as a probe to perform expression analyses. We observed that SaFLC was almost completely repressed after 1 week of vernalisation, but repression was stable only after 2 weeks, which is consistent with the fact that 2-week is the minimal duration of vernalisation that promotes flowering. Hence the molecular mechanisms of vernalisation seem to be conserved in Sinapis and Arabidopsis. [less ▲]

The prescription of a pharmacological agent concludes most medical visits. The rational basis of drug prescription by the physician relies on numerous pharmacodynamic, pharmacokinetic, pragmatic and economic considerations. However, it is a pity to notice that one patient out of two does not strictly follow the pharmacological treatment as it was prescribed. This article analyses some problems of the patient-doctor relationship, which may reduce medication compliance, and provides practical advice for improving such a situation in order to enhance both efficacy and safety of drug prescribing.

Arachidonic acid (AA) metabolites are key mediators involved in the pathogenesis of numerous cardiovascular, pulmonary, inflammatory, and thromboembolic diseases. One of these bioactive metabolites of particular importance is thromboxane A(2) (TXA(2)). It is produced by the action of thromboxane synthase on the prostaglandin endoperoxide H-2 (PGH(2)) which results from the enzymatic transformation of AA by the cyclooxygenases. It is a potent inducer of platelet aggregation, vasoconstriction and bronchoconstriction, and has been involved in a series of major pathophysiological conditions. Therefore, TXA(2) receptor antagonists, thromboxane synthase inhibitors and drugs combining both properties have been developed by different laboratories since the early 1980s. Several Compounds have been launched on the market and others are tinder clinical evaluation. In the first part of this review. we will describe the physiological properties of TXA(2), thromboxane synthase and thromboxane receptors. The second part is dedicated to a description of each class of thromboxane modulators with the advantages and disadvantages they offer. In the third part. we aim to describe recent studies performed with the most interesting thromboxane modulators in major pathologies: myocardial infarction and thrombosis, atherosclerosis, diabetes, pulmonary embolism, septic shock.. preeclampsia, and asthma. Each pathology will be systematically reviewed. Finally, in the last part we will highlight the latest perspectives in drug design of thromboxane modulators and in their future therapeutic applications such as cancer, metastasis and angiogenesis.

This article investigates the way in which the Flemish poet Herman de Coninck negotiated his position as a new realist. By presenting himself as a moderate, he was able to maintain and defend his personal views of literature and to present himself to the public as an acceptable representative of the newest generation, whilst riding on the ephemeral wave success enjoyed by new realism in the early 1970s.

Dans le cadre des différents thèmes de travail proposés aux membres de la commission de Toxicologie Clinique de la SFTA, une étude est réalisée sur l'identification et la quantification simultanée de 12 benzodiazépines dans le plasma. L'objectif est de tester la robustesse d'une technique d'extraction en l'imposant aux différents participants, les conditions chromatographiques de séparation et le mode de détection restant libres, fonctions de l'équipement de chaque laboratoire. L'étude a été réalisée sur une période de 2 mois et demi. Deux échantillons tests de plasmas surchargés avec 12 benzodiazépines à des concentrations thérapeutiques ou supra-thérapeutiques sont adressés à chaque centre d'investigation en vue de leur évaluation. La technique d'extraction utilise un mélange d'hexane / dichlorométhane en milieu tamponné (pH 9.2) et le loflazépate d'éthyle comme standard interne. Une méthode CLHP avec détecteur à barrette de diode est proposée à défaut par le laboratoire coordonnateur aux participants ne disposant pas de technique d'analyse. Sur les 11 participants, 10 utilisent une technique CLHP, un seul une technique CPG. Parmi les techniques CLHP, 2 d'entre elles associent un détecteur de masse, 7 un détecteur à barrette de diodes, 1 un détecteur UV. La technique CPG est associée à un détecteur de masse. L'analyse des résultats montre que la technique d'extraction proposée a été testée avec succès par 8/11 des participants : 4/11 laboratoires sans erreur et 4/11 laboratoires avec 1 ou 2 résultats exclus. Par contre, 3/11 laboratoires ont rencontré des difficultés majeures : un site par la survenue d'émulsions lors du traitement des échantillons tests (plasmas lyophilisés à reconstituer), un site par manque de temps et d'expérience, le troisième mettant en cause le choix du standard interne en technique CPG, le loflazépate d'éthyle n'ayant pas fait l'objet d'une étude préalable par cette technique.

Studies of lysozyme have played a major role over several decades in defining the general principles underlying protein structure, folding, and stability. Following the discovery some 10 years ago that two mutational variants of lysozyme are associated with systemic amyloidosis, these studies have been extended to investigate the mechanism of amyloid fibril formation. This Account describes our present knowledge of lysozyme folding and misfolding, and how the latter can give rise to amyloid disease. It also discusses the significance of these studies for our general understanding of normal and aberrant protein folding in the context of human health and disease. [less ▲]
