A cheilitis is an inflammatory disease confined to the lips. Several origins are recognized. Their nature is often different in children and adults. Some are spongiotic due to irritation or allergic reaction. Other lesions are keratotic and can evolve to leucoplasia and epidermoid carcinoma. [less ▲]

Strained nanowires with varying InAs/InP core/shell thicknesses were grown using Chemical Beam Epitaxy. Microphotoluminescence spectroscopy, performed at low temperature, was then used to study the optical properties of single wires. Emission from the InAs core was observed and its dependence on the shell thickness / core diameter ratio was investigated. We found that it is possible to tune the emission energy towards 0.8 eV by controlling this ratio. We have compared the measured energies with calculated energies. Our findings are consistent with the wires having a hexagonal crystal structure. [less ▲]

The Super-Earth Explorer Coronagraphic Off Axis Space Telescope (SEE-COAST) is a space mission concept to be submitted to ESA call for proposals. It is devoted to the direct imaging, in the visible, of the stellar light reflected by its planetary companion. Here we present the type of planetary characterization we may accomplish with SEE-COAST, and we include a brief description of the spacecraft and mission strategy. [less ▲]

Understanding how chromatin is spatially and dynamically organized in the nucleus of eukaryotic cells and how this affects genome functions is one of the main challenges of cell biology. In that context the role of the DNA sequence itself in these condensation- decondensation processes is still debated. In this chapter, we explore large-scale nucleotide compositional fluctuations along the human genome through the optics of the wavelet transform microscope. Analysis of the GC content and of the TA and GC skews re- veals the existence of rhythms with characteristic fundamental frequencies that enlighten a remarkable cooperative organization of gene location and orientation. We describe a multi-scale methodology that allows us to predict 1012 replication origins in the 22 hu- man autosomal chromosomes. We present a model of replication with well-positioned replication origins and random termination sites that accounts for the highly relaxational nature of the oscillations observed in the skew profiles. We emphasize these putative replication initiation zones as regions where the chromatin fiber is likely to be more open so that DNA be more easily accessible. We show that, in the crowded environment of the cell nucleus, the presence of these intrinsic decondensed structural defects actually pre- disposes the fiber to spontaneously form multi-looped rosette-like structures that provide an attractive description of genome organization into replication foci that are observed in interphase mammalian nuclei as stable autonomous chromatin domains favoring com- partmentalized DNA replication and gene expression. New experimental perspectives are discussed. [less ▲]

Several biological characteristics of bovine herpesvirus 4 (BoHV-4) make it a good candidate as a gene delivery vector for vaccination purposes. These characteristics include little or no pathogenicity, unlikely oncogenicity, the capability to accommodate large amounts of foreign genetic material, the ability to infect several cell types coming from different animal species, and the ability to maintain transgene expression in both undifferentiated and differentiated cells. Starting from BoHV-4 cloned as a bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC), we used MuA transposase-mediated in vitro transposition to generate recombinant BoHV-4 expressing the immunodominant glycoprotein D (gD) of BoHV-1, one of the most important pathogens of cattle. Although a cis-acting element from woodchuck hepatitis virus (the woodchuck hepatitis virus posttranscriptional regulatory element [WPRE]) in the 3' end of the gD expression cassette was required for maximal gD expression from plasmids in transient transfection assays, this element was not necessary for efficient expression of gD from recombinant BoHV-4 genomes. BoHV-4 recombinants containing gD expression cassettes with or without the WPRE expressed gD at similarly high levels. Several cell lines originating from different animal species expressed gD when infected with BoHV-4 recombinants. When rabbits were immunized with one of the recombinants, high levels of serum neutralizing antibodies against BoHV-1 were generated. This work is one of the first demonstrations of the use BoHV-4 as a vector for vaccine purposes and may provide the basis for BoHV-1 vaccination of cattle with recombinant BoHV-4. [less ▲]

The lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is a major component of the surface of the Gram negative bacteria. The LPS is composed of three separately synthesized entities: the lipid A, the core oligosaccharide and the O antigen, that will be linked together after their respective synthesis. The lipid A, embedded inside the outer membrane, is the proximal part of the LPS and the core is the medial part, whereas the O antigen represents the distal part free in the external environment. Amongst the Enterobacteriaceae family, the lipid A is structurally highly conserved and the variation in the structure of the core oligosaccharide is limited whereas the O antigen is the hypervariable region. Diverse biological activities have been associated with LPS, amongst which the endotoxinic activity carried by the lipid A, and the strain immunogenic specificity carried by the O antigen. In this review manuscript we summarize the state of knowledge on the structures and biosynthesis of the different components of the LPS of Escherichia coli and on their respective roles in the virulence of pathogenic bacteria.

The kidney could be the cause of essential hypertension which can also cause renal disease. High blood pressure is also very common in chronic kidney disease, and is moreover a well-known risk factor for a faster progression of kidney failure. Hypertension and kidneys are thus closely linked. Hypertension must be aggressively treated in patients suffering from chronic kidney disease, with a blood pressure goal of less than 130/80 mmHg, even lower than 125/75 mmHg when proteinuria is over 1g/day, using optimal and effective antihypertensive drugs. Among them, the blockers of the renin-angiotensin axis offer nephroprotective but also cardioprotective properties beyond their effect on blood pressure. [less ▲]

Magnetization, static and ac magnetic susceptibility, nuclear forward scattering, and electrical resistivity measurements have been performed on polycrystalline Eu4Sr4Ga16Ge30, a type I clathrate that has divalent strontium and europium ions encapsulated within a Ga-Ge framework. These data are compared with those of type I clathrates Eu8Ga16Ge30 and Eu6Sr2Ga16Ge30. The ferromagnetic ordering of these Eu-containing clathrates is substantially altered by the incorporation of strontium, as compared to Eu8Ga16Ge30. Ferromagnetism, accompanied by a relatively large negative magnetoresistance, is observed below 15 and 20 K in Eu4Sr4Ga16Ge30 and Eu6Sr2Ga16Ge30, respectively. An effective magnetic moment of 7.83 mu(B) per Eu ion is observed above 30 K for Eu4Sr4Ga16Ge30, a moment which is close to the free-ion moment of 7.94 mu(B) per europium(II) ion. [less ▲]
