Evolutionary models for massive stars which take into account rotational mixing effects do not predict any core-processed material at the surface of B dwarfs with low rotational velocities. We present a detailed and fully homogeneous non-LTE abundance analysis of a sample of largely unevolved B stars which points to the existence of a population of intrinsically slowly-rotating, yet nitrogen-rich objects contrary to theoretical expectations. These observations are discussed in relation to the boron content and the (weak) magnetic field detected in some targets. [less ▲]

The QSO HE0450-2958 and the companion galaxy with which it is interacting, both ultra luminous in the infrared, have been the subject of much attention in recent years, as the quasar host galaxy remained undetected. This led to various interpretations on QSO and galaxy formation and co-evolution, such as black hole ejection, jet induced star formation, dust obscured galaxy, or normal host below the detection limit. We carried out deep observations in the near-IR in order to solve the puzzle concerning the existence of any host. The object was observed with the ESO VLT and HAWK-I in the near-IR J-band for 8 hours. The images have been processed with the MCS deconvolution method (Magain, Courbin & Sohy, 1998), permitting accurate subtraction of the QSO light from the observations. The compact emission region situated close to the QSO, called the blob, which previously showed only gas emission lines in the optical spectra, is now detected in our near-IR images. Its high brightness implies that stars likely contribute to the near-IR emission. The blob might thus be interpreted as an off-centre, bright and very compact host galaxy, involved in a violent collision with its companion. [less ▲]

Aims. We search for low-mass companions in the innermost region (<300 mas, i.e., 6 AU) of the β Pic planetary system. Methods. We obtained interferometric closure phase measurements in the K-band with the VLTI/AMBER instrument used in its medium spectral resolution mode. Fringe stabilization was provided by the FINITO fringe tracker. Results. In a search region of between 2 and 60 mas in radius, our observations exclude at 3σ significance the presence of companions with K-band contrasts greater than 5×10^-3 for 90% of the possible positions in the search zone (i.e., 90% completeness). The median 1σ error bar in the contrast of potential companions within our search region is 1.2×10^-3. The best fit to our data set using a binary model is found for a faint companion located at about 14.4 mas from β Pic, which has a contrast of 1.8×10^-3 ± 1.1×10^-3 (a result consistent with the absence of companions). For angular separations larger than 60 mas, both time smearing and field-of-view limitations reduce the sensitivity. Conclusions. We can exclude the presence of brown dwarfs with masses higher than 29 MJup (resp. 47 MJup) at a 50% (resp. 90%) completeness level within the first few AUs around β Pic. Interferometric closure phases offer a promising way to directly image low-mass companions in the close environment of nearby young stars. [less ▲]

More than 1,000 susceptibility loci have been identified through genome-wide association studies (GWAS) of common variants; however, the specific genes and full allelic spectrum of causal variants underlying these findings have not yet been defined. Here we used pooled next-generation sequencing to study 56 genes from regions associated with Crohn's disease in 350 cases and 350 controls. Through follow-up genotyping of 70 rare and low-frequency protein-altering variants in nine independent case-control series (16,054 Crohn's disease cases, 12,153 ulcerative colitis cases and 17,575 healthy controls), we identified four additional independent risk factors in NOD2, two additional protective variants in IL23R, a highly significant association with a protective splice variant in CARD9 (P < 1 x 10(-16), odds ratio approximately 0.29) and additional associations with coding variants in IL18RAP, CUL2, C1orf106, PTPN22 and MUC19. We extend the results of successful GWAS by identifying new, rare and probably functional variants that could aid functional experiments and predictive models. [less ▲]

Viral tumor models have significantly contributed to our understanding of oncogenic mechanisms. How transforming delta-retroviruses induce malignancy however remains poorly understood, especially as viral mRNA/protein are tightly silenced in tumors. Here, using deep sequencing of broad windows of small RNA sizes in the Bovine Leukemia Virus ovine model of leukemia/lymphoma, we provide in vivo evidence of the production of non-canonical Pol IIItranscribed viral microRNAs in leukemic B-cells in the complete absence of Pol II 5’ LTR-driven transcriptional activity. Processed from a cluster of five independent self-sufficient transcriptional units located in a proviral region dispensable for in vivo infectivity, BLV microRNAs represent ~ 40 % of all microRNAs in both experimental and natural malignancy. They are subject to strong purifying selection and associate with Argonautes, consistent with a critical function in silencing of important cellular and/or viral targets. BLV microRNAs are strongly expressed in preleukemic and malignant cells in which structural and regulatory gene expression is repressed, suggesting a key role in tumor onset and progression. Understanding how Pol III-dependent microRNAs subvert cellular and viral pathways will contribute in deciphering the intricate perturbations that underlie malignant transformation. [less ▲]

Un siècle après l’essoufflement de la mode panoramique des années 1830-1840, l’emprunt littéraire à la « physiologie » constitue encore un effet de titre pour un essai théorique tel que Physiologie de la critique d’Albert Thibaudet. Pourtant, sous la Monarchie de Juillet, le petit genre du même nom, qui présente d’autres caractéristiques formelles et thématiques, n’est pas nettement défini par rapport à une conception et une pratique de l’essai. Au mieux peut-on lui découvrir des parentés significatives avec une certaine écriture journalistique. Les Physiologies se rapprochent en effet de la chronique sous la forme de la notation des faits-Paris et développent une fiction d’actualité féconde en savoir culturel et social. Leur engagement satirique contre le gouvernement en place et leur inscription dans un contexte de vulgarisation scientifique accrue sous l’influence londonienne de la « connaissance utile » ne suffisent pas à apparenter ces Physiologies à de la prose d’idées. Au contraire, elles contournent volontiers les conventions d’écriture du texte d’idées à travers des formes parodiques et déceptives. Il s’agit, de la sorte, d’empêcher le dogmatisme de prendre consistance en oeuvrant contre le discours d’autorité, en particulier scientifique, et contre l’assertivité qui lui est inhérente. Les informations traitées sont non seulement modelées par la distanciation humoristique et la saturation polyphonique, mais elles se trouvent également travaillées en profondeur par la contamination volontaire avec la rhétorique publicitaire dans un contexte de prolifération journalistique de la « réclame ». Le genre physiologique résiste de la sorte aux structures textuelles normatives et assertives d’exposition du savoir. Il ne se les approprie que pour mieux les disqualifier par l’humour et le raisonnement paralogique. Cette caractéristique se traduit par certaines postures discursives récurrentes, en particulier celle du faux spécialiste exhibé comme tel, posture qui consiste à feindre de se rendre ponctuellement expert d’une fraction réduite et caricaturalement recréée de la société, tout en opérant des décrochages réguliers par rapport à cette position énonciative investie d’une autorité. L’étude discursive et générique de tels modes d’expression biaisée du discours d’autorité doit permettre d’éclairer la dynamique d’écriture de l’essai dans les Physiologies parisiennes des années 1830-1840. Cet examen sera orienté par la question des redistributions qui sont ainsi rendues possibles à propos de la frontière entre l’essai-cognitif, caractérisé par une structuration théorique à vocation objectivante, et l’essai-méditation, centré sur une expressivité individualisante de l’instance énonciative.

Using modern brain imaging techniques, new discoveries are being made concerning the spontaneous activity of the brain when it is devoid of attention-demanding tasks. Spatially separated patches of neuronal assemblies have been found to show synchronized oscillatory activity behavior and are said to be functionally connected. One of the most robust of these is the default mode network, which is associated with intrinsic processes like mind wandering and self-projection. Furthermore, activity in this network is anticorrelated with activity in a network that is linked to attention to external stimuli. The integrity of both networks is disturbed in altered states of consciousness, like sleep, general anesthesia and hypnosis. In coma and related disorders of consciousness, encompassing the vegetative state (unresponsive wakefulness syndrome) and minimally conscious state, default mode network integrity correlates with the level of remaining consciousness, offering the possibility of using this information for diagnostic and prognostic purposes. Functional brain imaging is currently being validated as a valuable addition to the standardized behavioral assessments that are already in use. [less ▲]

The 'default network' is defined as a set of areas, encompassing posterior-cingulate/precuneus, anterior cingulate/mesiofrontal cortex and temporo-parietal junctions, that show more activity at rest than during attention-demanding tasks. Recent studies have shown that it is possible to reliably identify this network in the absence of any task, by resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging connectivity analyses in healthy volunteers. However, the functional significance of these spontaneous brain activity fluctuations remains unclear. The aim of this study was to test if the integrity of this resting-state connectivity pattern in the default network would differ in different pathological alterations of consciousness. Fourteen non-communicative brain-damaged patients and 14 healthy controls participated in the study. Connectivity was investigated using probabilistic independent component analysis, and an automated template-matching component selection approach. Connectivity in all default network areas was found to be negatively correlated with the degree of clinical consciousness impairment, ranging from healthy controls and locked-in syndrome to minimally conscious, vegetative then coma patients. Furthermore, precuneus connectivity was found to be significantly stronger in minimally conscious patients as compared with unconscious patients. Locked-in syndrome patient's default network connectivity was not significantly different from controls. Our results show that default network connectivity is decreased in severely brain-damaged patients, in proportion to their degree of consciousness impairment. Future prospective studies in a larger patient population are needed in order to evaluate the prognostic value of the presented methodology. [less ▲]

Observance around pregnancy includes two parts: what can be done before conception and what must be done during pregnancy. Preconception care, if efficaciously performed, offerss real benefits for foetal and child development. Its efficacy will depends on the involvement and motivation of physicians and particularly also on the patient's observance. In this article we summarize essential pieces of advice to be given to each patient before pregnancy. Therapeutic inertia in obstetrics presents two differents aspects: on the one hand, the delay to initiate a therapeutic strategy when a complication arises such as a postpartum hemorrhage; on the other hand, the continuation of obsolete practices, such as the therapy of uterine hypersystolia.

The problem of orientation or runout errors being formulated, it is firt noted that these errors necessarily include the form errors of the measured part. The second problem is the correct asseement of a simulated reference when the reference surface is of imperfect form. The logical choice would be perfect form having the least maximal distance to the physical one. But this choice being a difficult one, the best approximation in the least square sense if often chosed. The effect of this reference perturbation is studied. [less ▲]
