Processing of fibrillar collagens is required to generate collagen monomers able to self-assemble into elongated and cylindrical collagen fibrils. ADAMTS-2 belongs to the "A disintegrin and metalloproteinase with thrombospondin type 1 motifs" (ADAMTS) family. It is responsible for most of the processing of the aminopropeptide of type I procollagen in the skin, and it also cleaves type II and type III procollagens. ADAMTS are complex secreted enzymes that are implicated in various physiological and pathological processes. Despite accumulating evidence indicating that their activity is regulated by ancillary domains, additional information is required for a better understanding of the specific function of each domain. We have generated 17 different recombinant forms of bovine ADAMTS-2 and characterized their processing, activity, and cleavage specificity. The results indicated the following: (i) activation of the ADAMTS-2 zymogen involves several cleavages, by proprotein convertases and C-terminal processing, and generates at least seven distinct processed forms; (ii) the C-terminal domain negatively regulates enzyme activity, whereas two thrombospondin type 1 repeats are enhancer regulators; (iii) the 104-kDa form displays the highest aminoprocollagen peptidase activity on procollagen type I; (iv) ADAMTS-2 processes the aminopropeptide of alpha1 type V procollagen homotrimer at the end of the variable domain; and (v) the cleaved sequence (PA) is different from the previously described sites ((P/A)Q) for ADAMTS-2, redefining its cleavage specificity. This finding and the existence of multiple processed forms of ADAMTS-2 strongly suggest that ADAMTS-2 may be involved in function(s) other than processing of fibrillar procollagen types I-III.

One of the 'grand challenges' in modern biology is to understand the genetic basis of phenotypic diversity within and among species. Thousands of years of selective breeding of domestic animals has created a diversity of phenotypes among breeds that is only matched by that observed among species in nature. Domestic animals therefore constitute a unique resource for understanding the genetic basis of phenotypic variation. When the genome sequences of domestic animals become available the identification of the mutations that underlie the transformation from a wild to a domestic species will be a realistic and important target.

Background: The contralateral shoulder is often used as a reference when evaluating a pathological shoulder. However literature provides contradictory results regarding the symmetry of the scapular pattern in a healthy population. We assume that several factors including the gender and the type of motion may influence the scapula bilateral symmetry. Method: The dominant and non dominant shoulders of two populations of men and women composed of 11 subjects each were evaluated for three distinct motions: flexion in the sagittal plane, abduction in the frontal plane and gleno-humeral internal/external rotation with the arm abducted at 90°. Posture, kinematic and range of motion were studied separately. Results: Asymmetries are observed for motions performed in the frontal and sagittal plane but not for the internal/external rotation with the arm abducted at 90°. Multiplane asymmetries are observed for the male population, whereas asymmetries for the female one are mainly uniplanar. For both men and women, the scapula has a larger upward rotation on the dominant side. For men, a larger posterior tilt is also observed. The asymmetries mainly originate in the scapula kinematic and not in its original posture. Discussion: Even if the asymmetries are not large in terms of amplitude (inferior to 5°), one should be aware of their existence and the influence of the composition of the studied population when using the contralateral shoulder as a reference.

Gut content examination and trophic markers (fatty acids, stables isotopes of C and N) were combined to delineate the diet of the dominant species of amphipods from Mediterranean Posidonia oceanica seagrass meadows and to highlight trophic diversity among this community. Our results indicate that, although all dominant species heavily relied on macroalgal epiphytes, considerable interspecific dietary differences existed. Carbon stable isotope ratios notably showed that some of the amphipod species favored grazing on epiphytes from leaves or litter fragments (Apherusa chiereghinii, Aora spinicornis, Gammarus aequicauda), while others like Dexamine spiniventris preferred epiphytes from rhizomes. The remaining amphipods (Caprella acanthifera, Ampithoe helleri and Gammarella fucicola) readily consumed both groups. In addition, SIAR modeling suggested that most species had a mixed diet, and relied on several food items. Fatty acid analysis and gut contents revealed that contribution of microepiphytic diatoms and of benthic and suspended particulate organic matter to the diet of amphipods were anecdotal. None of the examined species seemed to graze on their seagrass host (low 18:2(n-6) and 18:3(n-3) fatty acids contents), but G. aequicauda partly relied on seagrass leaf detritus, as demonstrated by the lesser 13C-depletion of their tissues. Overall, our findings suggest that amphipods, because of their importance in transfers of organic matter from primary producers and detritus to higher rank consumers, are key-items in P. oceanica associated food webs.

We construct simple portfolios of hedge funds whose performance characteristics dominate those of funds of funds using three different measures: the alpha, the Sharpe ratio and the Information ratio. Portfolios made up of non-directional funds with the highest Information ratios and/or Sharpe ratios are likely to exhibit a significant amount of persistence and continue to dominate the best funds of funds on all three performance measures. The large risk exposure of directional hedge fund strategies, however, makes them less likely to dominate funds of funds, even when combined with non-directional hedge funds strategies. Overall, these results seem to imply that the extra layer of fees paid to fund of fund managers are largely unmerited, as we can create portfolios of funds, using simple portfolio construction rules and readily available market information, that greatly outperform the best Fund of Funds.
