Several legume seed proteins that are potentially allergenic, poorly digested by farm animals, and/or have undesirable functional properties, have been described. One of these is the albumin protein in pea (Pisum sativum) called PA2. A naturally occurring mutant line that lacks PA2 has been exploited in studies to determine the biological function of this nonstorage protein in seed development. The mutant, which has a small seed, a tall plant phenotype, and lacks most of the PA2-encoding genes, has been crossed with a standard cultivar, 'Birte,' which contains PA2 to give rise to a recombinant inbred (RI) population. An F(3) line carrying the mutation and having a short plant phenotype has been used to generate backcross (BC) lines with 'Birte.' Despite having a lower albumin content, seeds from the mutant parent and RI lines lacking PA2 have an equivalent or higher seed nitrogen content. Metabolite profiling of seeds revealed major differences in amino acid composition and polyamine content in the two parent lines. This was investigated further in BC lines, where the effects of differences in seed size and plant height between the two parents were eliminated. Here, differences in polyamine synthesis were maintained as was a difference in total seed protein between the BC line lacking PA2 and 'Birte.' Analysis of enzyme activities in the pathways of polyamine synthesis revealed that the differences in spermidine content were attributable to changes in the overall activities of spermidine synthase and arginine decarboxylase. Although the genes encoding spermidine synthase and PA2 both localized to the pea linkage group I, the two loci were shown not to be closely linked and to have recombined in the BC lines. A distinct locus on linkage group III contains a gene that is related to PA2 but expressed predominantly in flowers. The results provide evidence for a role of PA2 in regulating polyamine metabolism, which has important functions in development, metabolism, and stress responses in plants. [less ▲]

In the design of nuclear waste disposals, an important topic concerns the development of an excavated damage zone, where permeability increases. A correct numerical prediction of the coupled processes occurring during excavation is therefore needed. In this paper, a nonclassical hydraulic boundary condition is described. It mixes two modes of water exchanges in partial saturation: seepage and evaporation flows. Seepage flow avoids unphysical water inflow into the rock mass, which might be obtained with usual boundary condition in dilatant geomaterial. Evaporation flows enable the thermodynamical equilibrium between air relative humidity in the cavity and in the rock mass. The numerical modeling of a cavity excavation in dilatant geomaterial is carried out. The results show the influence of the hydraulic boundary condition on the convergence of the cavity. Depending on the value of the transfer coefficient, the proposed numerical model can recover the results obtained with an imposed atmospheric pressure or suction at the cavity wall. The determination of the mass transfer coefficient is thus needed and can be achieved through drying experiments or can be estimated thanks to in situ measurements. [less ▲]

Le Master Complémentaire Formasup (60 crédits) est organisé depuis maintenant 6 ans à l’université de Liège. Son public-cible est constitué d’enseignants du supérieur, de Belgique et de l’étranger, désireux de réfléchir à leur pratique enseignante, de se remettre en question, d’entrer en projet pour innover dans leur classe, de mener une recherche et de communiquer sur ces avancées professionnelles. Le courant du « Scholarship of Teaching and Learning » (SoTL, Boyer 1990) nous a guidés dans la constitution d’un référentiel de compétences qui s’est affiné au fil des années et reflète aujourd’hui ces préoccupations. Pour développer ces compétences, les enseignants inscrits à Formasup sont chacun aidés d’un accompagnateur. Ils interagissent à travers un outil en ligne qui leur permet de dialoguer à propos de leur développement des compétences ciblées dans le référentiel. Ils se voient progresser, sont encouragés dans ces progrès et construisent peu à peu leur portfolio professionnel. Ce portfolio jouera le rôle de « dossier de réussite » (Tardif 2006). Après un cadrage contextuel et conceptuel, les trois outils (référentiel - outil d’accompagnement au développement de compétences - portfolio) font chacun l’objet d’une présentation, dont se dégage l’importance de la cohérence entre les différents instruments de la formation professionnelle des enseignants.

Hederacolchiside A1 was used to progressively permeabilize the membrane of human melanoma MEL-5 cells. Holes formation was followed by Scanning Electron Microscopy and interaction of the saponin with cholesterol and phospholipids by TOF-SIMS. 2D-LC-MS/MS and 2D-SDS-PAGE show that the release of soluble proteins into serum-free culture media increases with time. This can lead to a new rapid and efficient strategy to analyze the cytosolic subproteome and it opens the door to get information from the cytosolic compartment for clinical proteomic studies.

Les processus contrôlés et automatiques de récupération mnésique ont été évalués au moyen de la Procédure de Dissociation des Processus appliquée à une tâche de complètement de trigrammes chez 59 patients diagnostiqués comme « questionable Alzheimer’s disease » (QAD ou Mild Cognitive Impairment). Par ailleurs, le métabolisme cérébral du glucose des patients a été mesuré par FDG-PET. Comparativement à des volontaires âgés sains appariés, le profil mnésique des patients QAD était caractérisé par un déficit des processus contrôlés, mais une préservation des processus automatiques. Après un suivi de 30 mois, 27 des patients ont développé une maladie d’Alzheimer, tandis que 23 patients restèrent des QAD stables (9 sujets n’ont pas complété le suivi ou ont reçu un autre diagnostic au terme de celui-ci). Les deux sous-groupes présentaient le même degré de déclin des processus de mémoire contrôlés. Des corrélations cognitivo-métaboliques, ainsi qu’une analyse en composantes principales, ont permis de montrer que les corrélats métaboliques des processus contrôlés (à l’entrée dans l’étude) n’étaient les mêmes chez les patients qui allaient développer la maladie d’Alzheimer et chez les patients qui allaient rester stables. Chez les patients qui développaient ultérieurement une maladie d’Alzheimer, l’utilisation correcte des processus contrôlés était positivement corrélée à l’activité du cortex préfrontal dorsomédian, qui pourrait jouer un rôle dans les processus réflexifs de monitoring agissant sur les produits de la récupération. L’activité du cortex préfrontal dorsomédian était corrélée à l’activité métabolique des régions frontales bilatérales et du cortex cingulaire postérieur. Par contraste, chez les patients QAD stables, nous avons trouvé une corrélation avec la formation hippocampique antérieure, une région qui intervient dans la réactivation de l’épisode d’encodage des événements.

European nitrate directive (CEE/91/676) imposes wide monitoring of Nitrogen in farmlands. The Walloon Region (South of Belgium – 750 000 ha of arable land) develops an original combination of methods to reach European objectives in this topic. On the one hand, water and nitrogen flows and balances are modelled, on the other hand, an Agricultural Surface Survey is put into practice to monitor nitrate nitrogen in the soil at the beginning of the leaching period. The Agricultural Surface Survey is constituted by a 30 reference farms network within more than 200 plots are monitored each in order to fix annual standards for nitrate profiles. Each year, about 1% of the Walloon farms are assessed about their good nitrogen management. Thanks to the existence of a useful database of nitrate profiles measured through six years in the whole Walloon Region, validation of the simulations in the vadose zone can be realised. The comparison of the measured data and the simulation shows a good accuracy of the EPICgrid model. [less ▲]

A specific formula to calculate separation distance from piggeries and poultry facilities to sensitive receptor is developed for Walloon Region, in Belgium. The paper briefly presents the main principles of the formula and discusses more deeply the compatibility of the distance approach with odour units, odour rate and percentiles usually applied to assess the odour annoyance zones. A method of validation is presented and tested to adjust the different parameters of the formula to Belgian field reality. A total of 43 farms of which 21 piggeries and 22 poultry facilities are visited and, for each case, the distance calculated by the formula is compared to the one deduced from odour annoyance criterion (10 ou m-3 at 98th percentile). Validation work results in discussing the sensibility of different factors of the formula and especially in adjusting a fitting factor to match the absolute distances to real field annoyance impression. Conclusions show that both approaches - separation distance formula and percentile evaluation - are coherent. The validation method allows parameter adjustment but should need further refinements to examine separately piggeries and poultry facilities. [less ▲]
