The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) allows emission-reduction (or emission removal) projects in developing countries to earn Certified Emission Reduction (CER) credits, each equivalent to one tonne of CO2. These CERs can be traded and sold, and used by industrialized countries to a meet a part of their emission reduction targets under the Kyoto Protocol. The mechanism stimulates sustainable development and emission reductions, while giving industrialized countries some flexibility in how they meet their emission reduction limitation targets. Accepted projects must qualify through a rigorous and public registration and issuance process designed to ensure real, measurable and verifiable emission reductions that are additional to what would have occurred without the project. Between November 2004 and May 2009, the mechanism has registered 1653 projects and is anticipated to currently produce CERs amounting to 303 106 tonnes of CO2 equivalent yearly. The mechanism is extremely interesting since it is the first global, environmental investment and credit scheme of its kind, providing a standardized emissions offset instrument. However the geographical distribution of the CDM projects is revealing very large differences in between developing countries since China, India, Brazil and South-Korea totalise 82% of the CERs while Africa only represents 3,3% of the total.

The cleanability of several model solid substrates (glass, stainless steel, polystyrene and polytetrafluoroethylene-PTFE) was studied with a radial-flow cell. Two soiling methods were used to mimic splashing with oil; a thin layer chromatography sprayer giving a narrower and more reproducible oil droplet size distribution was preferred. Glass was the most cleanable substrate, a result which may be consistent with the presence of a swelling gel-like layer at the surface. For the other substrates, the mechanical action exerted by the fluid played a major role in oil removal; however the detergent seemed to intervene after about 5-10 min, facilitating cleaning of PTFE. Oil droplet removal took place only at high wall shear stress, in zones where flow conditions where not well controlled making it impossible to evaluate the wall shear stresses needed for oil droplet removal. Evaluation of cleanability by using the radial-flow cell is restricted to variations of wall shear stresses in a range below 3 N m(-2). (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

We present the case of a 36 yr old woman with a persisting complaints of left chest pain. A chest radiograph revealed multiple left pleural thickenings. Classical exploration was negative. Thoracic surgery allowed the subtotal removal of a huge pleural tumour. The histological examination revealed a clear cell sarcoma. The literature on this extremely rare tumour is reviewed. [less ▲]

Direct plant stress sensing is the key for a quantitative understanding of drought stress effects on biogenic volatile organic compound (BVOC) emissions. A given level of drought stress might have a fundamentally different effect on the BVOC emissions of different plants. For the first time, we continuously quantified the level of drought stress in a young potted beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) with a linear variable displacement transducer (LVDT) installed at stem level in combination with simultaneous measurements of BVOC emissions and photosynthesis rates at leaf level. This continuous set of measurements allowed us to examine how beech alters its pattern of photosynthesis and carbon allocation to BVOC emissions (mainly monoterpenes, MTs) and radial stem growth during the development of drought stress. We observed an increasing-decreasing trend in the MT emissions as well as in the fraction of assimilated carbon re-emitted back into the atmosphere (ranging between 0.14 and 0.01%). We were able to link these dynamics to pronounced changes in radial stem growth, which served as a direct plant stress indicator. Interestingly, we detected a sudden burst in emission of a non-identified, non-MT BVOC species when drought stress was acute (i.e. pronounced negative stem growth). This burst might have been caused by a certain stress-related green leaf volatile, which disappeared immediately upon re-watering and thus the alleviation of drought stress. These results highlight that direct plant stress sensing creates opportunities to understand the overall complexity of stress-related BVOC emissions. [less ▲]

Aims: To evaluate whether CpG ODNs affect platelet activation and thrombus formation via CLEC-2 and TLR9. Methods: We incubated washed platelets or whole blood from TLR9-, MyD88- or CLEC-2- deficient mice with CpG ODNs. We performed platelet aggregometry, flow cytometric binding and platelet activation assays as well as signal transduction analyses. Thrombus formation and fibrin generation were also analyzed by intravital microscopy in mouse microcirculation upon intravenous injection of CpG ODNs. Results: We show that CpG ODNs bind on platelet surface and are internalized. They activate platelets and induce their aggregation. TLR9- or MyD88-deficient platelets aggregated normally in response to CpG ODN. Interestingly, platelets deficient for the C-type lectin receptor CLEC-2 were unable to capture and internalize CpG ODN. CLEC-2 deficiency abolished CpG ODN-induced platelet activation and aggregation. CpG ODN stimulated CLEC-2 dependent tyrosine kinase pathway and Syk phosphorylation. In vivo, intravenously injected CpG ODN interacted with platelets adhered to laser injured arteriolar endothelia and promoted fibrin generation and thrombus growth. Conclusion: CLEC-2 mediates CpG ODN uptake and subsequent platelet activation, independently of TLR9, which may serve an important role in the interplay between platelets and immunity. [less ▲]

Background: Short nuclease-resistant phosphorothioate synthetic CpG motif-bearing oligonucleotides (CpG ODNs) mimicking bacterial DNA display potent immunostimulatory activity and are therefore being used in clinical trials as vaccine adjuvants. Cellular uptake and activation depends on the interaction of CpG ODNs with the C-type lectin receptor DEC-205 and subsequent stimulation of the Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) and myeloid differentiation primary response 88 (MyD88) signaling cascade. Platelets express TLR9, MyD88, and the C-type lectin-like receptor 2 (CLEC-2). However, the impacts of CpG ODNs on platelet function have been elusive. Aims: To evaluate whether CpG ODNs affect platelet activation and thrombus formation via CLEC-2 and TLR9. Methods: We incubated washed platelets or whole blood from TLR9-, MyD88- or CLEC-2- deficient mice with CpG ODNs.
