Wall-associated kinase 1--WAK1 is a transmembrane protein containing a cytoplasmic Ser/Thr kinase domain and an extracellular domain in contact with the pectin fraction of the plant cell wall in Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) HEYNH. In a previous paper [Decreux, A., Messiaen, J., 2005. Wall-associated kinase WAK1 interacts with cell wall pectins in a calcium-induced conformation. Plant Cell Physiol. 46, 268-278], we showed that a recombinant peptide expressed in yeast corresponding to amino acids 67-254 of the extracellular domain of WAK1 specifically interacts with commercial non-methylesterified homogalacturonic acid, purified homogalacturonans from Arabidopsis and oligogalacturonides in a calcium-induced conformation. In this report, we used a receptor binding domain sequence-based prediction method to identify four putative binding sites in the extracellular domain of WAK1, in which cationic amino acids were selected for substitution by site-directed mutagenesis. Interaction studies between mutated forms of WAK1 and homogalacturonans allowed us to identify and confirm at least five specific amino acids involved in the interaction with homogalacturonan dimers and multimers. The presence of this homogalacturonan-binding domain within the extracellular domain of WAK1 is discussed in terms of cell wall architecture and signal transduction. [less ▲]

Both for a fundamental understanding of the flux penetration process and for technical applications, the role of artificial pinning sites (such as antidots) in superconductors generates a lot of interest. We perform magneto-optical imaging experiments on type-II Pb thin films patterned with square arrays of square antidots and square arrays of rectangular antidots and blind holes. We demonstrate that a square lattice of rectangular antidots can lead to similar anisotropy in flux penetration and critical current as a rectangular lattice of square antidots. In addition we show how thermo-magnetic avalanches can be guided-and hence to a certain extend controlled-by such holes. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

We report on the magnetic field evolution of the Neel temperature T-N in the heavy electron system CeIn3-xSnx (x = 0 and 0.3), as determined by specific heat, magnetocaloric effect, and electrical transport measurements. For the stoichiometric compound, T-N is fully suppressed at H-c similar to 65 T, whereas for x = 0.3 the critical field extrapolates to H-c similar to 30 T. An increasing Sommerfeld coefficient gamma, obtained above T-N, as field increases is observed and could be related to the a putative quantum critical point at H-c.

Chronic inflammation and autoimmunity likely contribute to the pathogenesis of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs). The aim of this study was to investigate the role of autoimmunity in the etiology of AAAs using a genetic association study approach with human leukocyte antigen (HLA) polymorphisms (HLA-DQA1, -DQB1, -DRB1 and -DRB3-5 alleles) in 387 AAA cases and 426 controls. We observed an association with the HLA-DQA1 locus among Belgian males, and found a significant difference in the HLA-DQA1 *0102 allele frequencies between AAA cases and controls. In conclusion, this study showed potential evidence that the HLA-DQA1 locus harbors a genetic risk factor for AAAs suggesting that autoimmunity plays a role in the pathogenesis of AAAs. [less ▲]

When studying crashworthiness problems, contact simulation can be the source of a number of problems. A first one is the discontinuities in the normal evolution for a boundary discretized by finite elements. Another problem is the treatment of the contact forces that can introduce numerical energy in the system. In this paper, we propose to combine a method of discontinuity smoothing with the energy-momentum consistent scheme that recently appeared in the literature. (c) 2005 Elsevier Ltd.

We discuss recent specific heat data in high magnetic fields on URu2Si2 and 4% Rh-doped URu2Si2 as well as previously published de Haas-van Alphen data at lower magnetic fields in pure URu2Si2: both of which are consistent with quasiparticle bands formed from a hybridization between 5f-electron Gamma(5) doublets and regular conduction electrons. The system exhibits itinerant electron metamagnetism that gives rise to a putative quantum critical point at similar to 34-37T (depending on the % of Rh) that is subsequently unstable to field-induced phases.

Specific heat, magnetocaloric effect and magnetization experiments were performed on the 5f-electron system U(Ru0.96Rh0.04)(2)Si-2. This compound exhibits a non-magnetic ground state with a single magnetic field-induced phase between H = 26 and 38 T. We show that the transition into this phase is first-order as revealed by a large irreversible specific heat anomaly and asymmetric magnetocaloric effect. A comparative analysis with the valence transition compound YbInCu4, where similar irreversibility and asymmetry exists, is presented. (c) 2006 Published by Elsevier B.V. [less ▲]

The Peace of Fexhe has always been seen by the Liegeois as a constitutional treaty of paramount importance as it provided the principality of Liège with a representative assembly. Yet, this text, enacted in 1316, remained in use until the end of the State of Liège. The present article focuses therefore on its history in order to determine the role it actually played in the political life of Liège at the end of the Middle Ages and during the Modern Times. What emerges is that, signed in a context of tension, the Peace of Fexhe really was a compromise signed between two parties exhausted by famine, not the victory of one over the other. Even though the treaty seems to record several claims of the opponents to the prince-bishop Adolphe de La Marck, it really is the latter who, in spite of what numerous historians believed, continued to direct the political game of Liège. Indeed, his arbitrators managed to counter the claims of their opponents through the insertion of clauses preventing any real upheaval within the principality. For Adolphe, this treaty is therefore a break in his quest for a total sovereignty. Following him, the prince-bishops of Liège strove in defence of their power, contravening if need be the text of 1316. The Liégeois appeared to us to have been perfectly aware of the limits of the Peace of Fexhe but they endeavoured to gloss over these in order to make the text an absolute reference in the domain of political claims and a revered rallying symbol. Then, it will be through the constant reminder of this treaty that various political claims arose, making it de facto the source of the “Liegian constitution”. Afterwards, the Liegeois had recourse to the Peace of Fexhe in order to legitimate their political options. However, it was absolutely not a general rule since several politicians close to the people, such as Thierry de Perwez or Raes de Heers did not make use of the text. On the contrary, it was within more “cultivated” circles, such as the municipal magistrates and the burgomasters, that the text was the less rarely used, whether it be at the time of the promulgation of the decisions of the Council of Trente or at the eve of the Liegian Revolution. Moreover, it is by its almost uninterrupted presence in the Liegian politics that the Peace of Fexhe asks the question of the administration of law in the principality. In spite of a common objective, punishing the abuse of power of the episcopal officers, it was in opposition over the question of the procedure with the Peaces of the XXII . Yet the Court of the XXII considered itself to be in charge of the defence of the Peace of Fexhe. Similarly, the capitulations of the prince-bishops swore to the respect of the text and court without fear of a contradiction that no one seemed to have wanted to highlight. This shows how deep it was rooted in the Liegian legal culture, even though the real action of the Peace of Fexhe through the centuries left few traces. In conclusion, the Peace of Fexhe owes its prestige to its recuperation by different political forces that used it as a battle flag, adapting it, contradicting it sometimes, to their claims. Thus, event though its exact stipulations were forgotten as soon as the end of the 16th century and it was then progressively completed, it survived in the imagination and built up its prestige on the additional meaning its utilisations provided it with, for, in Liège, who defends Fexhe defends the good right.
