Superficial dermatomycoses are frequent conditions in humans and animals. Specific treatment modalities have been designed using a variety of different antifungal compounds. The need for antifungal susceptibility testing (AST) has been growing steadily over the last two decades due to the extending number of newer antifungal agents. Objective inter- and intraindividual comparisons of their respective efficacies are nearly impossible to perform in vivo. Currently, a series of standardized AST methods and interpretative guidelines have been designed. However, their clinical relevance for dermatomycoses is not consistent. The corneofungimetry bioassay was designed to test comparatively a series of antifungals on pathogenic fungi growing on sheets of human stratum corneum. Computerized morphometric assessments bring numerical values allowing statistical comparisons. Variants of corneofungimetry address more specific aspects related to fungal cell adhesion, fungitoxicity and lipid-dependent fungi. [less ▲]

A small-sized brachiopod fauna, representing an orthid, rhynchonellid and spiriferid community which lived in a low-energy environment, is reported from the lower part of the Argiles de Teguentour and was collected around Oued Tamertasset (or Temertasset) and Oued Habadra in north-western Mouydir (Algerian Sahara). Associated goniatites indicate an early Late Tournaisian age (Pericyclus–Progoniatites assemblage). Thirteen brachiopod species belonging to 12 genera and 5 orders (Productida, Orthida, Rhynchonellida, Athyridida and Spiriferida) are described. Mouydirhynchus is proposed as a new rhynchonellid genus and the species Rhipidomella prolifica, Mouydirhynchus quietus and Eomartiniopsis mouydirensis are new. The other described taxa are the following: Chonetipustula? sp., strophalosioid gen. et sp. indet., Schizophoria sp., trigonirhynchiid gen. indet. sp. A, trigonirhynchiid gen. indet. sp. B, Hemiplethorhynchus? sp., Coveenia? sp., Crurithyris cf. fissa, Punctothyris? sp., and elythid gen. et sp. indet. [less ▲]

The Actinomadura R39 DD-peptidase is a bacterial low molecular weight class C penicillin-binding protein. It has previously been shown to catalyze hydrolysis and aminolysis of small D-alanyl-D-alanine terminating peptides, especially those with a side chain that mimics the amino terminus of the stem peptide precursor to the bacterial cell wall. This paper describes the synthesis of (D-alpha-aminopimelylamino)-D-1-ethylboronic acid, designed to be a peptidoglycan-mimetic transition state analogue inhibitor of the R39 DD-peptidase. The boronate was found to be a potent inhibitor of the peptidase with a K(i) value of 32 +/- 6 nM. Since it binds some 30 times more strongly than the analogous peptide substrate, the boronate may well be a transition state analogue. A crystal structure of the inhibitory complex shows the boronate covalently bound to the nucleophilic active site Ser 49. The aminopimelyl side chain is bound into the site previously identified as specific for this moiety. One boronate oxygen is held in the oxyanion hole; the other, occupying the leaving group site of acylation or the nucleophile site of deacylation, appears to be hydrogen-bonded to the hydroxyl group of Ser 298. The Ser 49 oxygen appears to be hydrogen bonded to Lys 52. If it is assumed that this structure does resemble a high-energy tetrahedral intermediate in catalysis, it seems likely that Ser 298 participates as part of a proton transfer chain initiated by Lys 52 or Lys 410 as the primary proton donor/acceptor. The structure, therefore, supports a particular class of mechanism that employs this proton transfer device. [less ▲]

Microtextural analysis of rocks has been addressed by several authors as an essential means to better understand the natural genesis of the material. But, it is also of paramount importance to those who try to predict the geotechnical or industrial behaviour of a rock under many forms of solicitation (mechanical, thermal, etc.). Quantitative modal (phase) analysis using point counting has already been discussed in depth by authors such as Chayes more than fifty years ago. Nowadays, automated image analysis with millions of pixels is easily available and improves statistical accuracy provided the classification step is correctly performed. Spitefully the assignment of a pixel to a given mineral phase or to a given crystal is often poorly satisfactory and remains the bottleneck of a fully automated textural analysis. Methods using a manual rotation of a polarizer in transmitted light microscopy have been developed by Starkey and Samantaray (1993) and further automated and improved by Fueten (1997). These allow to better delineate individual crystals in a thin section due to contrast in birefringence. In this paper a similar technique using multiple orientations of a polarizer in reflected light microscopy has been used to contrast individual crystals in carbonated rocks. The maximum and minimum grey levels registered for each pixel allow for computing a bireflectance image whose variance is a good indicator of the misalignment of cristallographical orientations in the section. Moreover, the maximum of the reflectance gradient obtained for each orientation generates a good image of the grain boundaries and the presence of pores. This last one is quantitatively analysed using the intercept method to estimate the mean and variance of the grain size distribution. The paper presents a quantitative comparison of several different microtextures. [less ▲]

For 30 years, many haemorrhagic syndromes were observed in cattle. The recent observation in Europe of a new entity hemorrhagic highlights a consistent set of clinical cases in calves of all breeds under 30 days of age, with pancytopenic haemorrhagic purpura. Calves are vironegative for BVD and BTV, most are seropositive for both viruses antibodies. No specific etiology has been highlighted, but it seems that the syndrome is linked to the ingestion of colostrum immunized against cells of the calf. The syndrome is sporadic, with a prevalence ranging between 1:10,000 and 1:100,000 cattle under one year of age, causing a lethality of 99%. The origin of the pancytopenia is a medullar aplasia.

By the decisions of treaty of Versailles the inhabitants of the two German "Kreise" Eupen and Malmedy became Belgians in 1920. Since 1919, Belgium had shown its territorial claims on the region by positioning troops there. Which forms did the memory of the War take in the first years after the WW I? How could the people mourn the victims of the war - victims who had fought for the "army of the enemy" of the new "Vaterland"? The paper aims at illustrating the official politics of memory at one hand - e.g. the demolition of the soldiers' momument in Malmedy and the excemption of the military service for four years - and at including more intimate forms of war memory on the other hand. The focus lies on the significance of the war for the political and social communication in Eupen-Malmedy during the interwar period. [less ▲]

L’Auteur propose ici un panorama de l'artisanat et de l'économie du fer autour des rivages français de la Méditerranée, sur la longue durée. La démarche archéologique intègre une approche archéométrique spécialement adaptée à l’analyse de la sidérurgie ancienne, utilisant métallographie et pétrographie. La question est traitée dans son ensemble, non seulement sur la base des connaissances déjà acquises, à partir d’inventaires bibliographiques précis, mais aussi à partir des études inédites et détaillées de douze contextes métallurgiques « témoins », significatifs de problématiques propres. Ils sont documentés par l’ensemble des données archéologiques et, spécialement, sur la base d’une description rigoureuse des aménagements, du tri de près de 28 000 pièces métallurgiques – objets et scories – et de l’analyse archéométrique de 169 d’entre elles. L’ouvrage se structure autour des trois grandes activités qui se dégagent de la chaîne opératoire de la métallurgie du fer directe : la production du matériau fer (la réduction directe du minerai), la fabrication des objets (forgeage) et le commerce du matériau fer sous une forme semi-finie (la circulation des demi-produits). Ainsi, à travers l’évolution de ces trois types d’activités économiques, il met en évidence les choix et les comportements qui ont été adoptés pour un même exercice, des cadres antiques à l’orée de la réforme carolingienne pour, finalement, contribuer à une meilleure connaissance de l’économie et de la société entre l’époque romaine et le début du Moyen Âge en Gaule du Sud.
