Il est désormais nécessaire de reconsidérer l’organisation du domaine universitaire du Sart Tilman, campus de l’Université de Liège, non seulement en se replaçant dans le contexte de l’époque actuelle, mais aussi dans l’optique d’une démarche prospective. Le présent article se concentre sur l’intervention dans la zone Nord, partie la plus peuplée du domaine, point d’entrée de l’université et donc limite stratégique entre la ville et son université.

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.

Innovations relevant to human evolution often involve subsistence technology, which can affect the success of individual groups, and Homo sapiens in general. However, Palaeolithic technologies include more than just hunting tools, and a proper understanding of hunter-gatherer ways of living requires knowledge of the organisation of diverse tasks and activities, including the manufacture and maintenance of tools and other equipment. One central aspect of technological evolution is the development of tool hafting [1, 2], which is not only restricted to hunting and gathering implements, but also affects so-called domestic tool categories. We present the results of an on-going project that focuses on hafting and use of stone tools in the Upper Palaeolithic through detailed functional analysis of selected assemblages from European key sites (Hohle Fels, Abri Pataud, Maisières-Canal), which have yielded rich lithic and organic assemblages from secure chronological contexts. Here the focus is on classic Upper Palaeolithic tool categories, such as endscrapers and burins, from the Gravettian and Magdalenian levels of the cave site Hohle Fels (Germany) [3, 4]. We suggest that domestic tools can offer a valuable source material, since for most of them, hafting is not a necessity as it is for spear and arrow tips. An increase in hafting implies an increase in time investment, which has implications for task organisation and specialisation. The Hohle Fels assemblage offers an interesting case study for temporal changes (or continuity) in the frequency and techniques of tool hafting. The projectile technology shows a clear shift from the Gravettian to the Magadalenian, marked by the introduction of a microlithic technology (backed bladelets). For other tool categories, the changes seem more subtle. Our goal is to characterise the tools used in manufacture and maintenance tasks, and to evaluate whether the Gravettian to Magdalenian transition witnesses changes in tool design and use that go beyond hunting equipment. The observed differences between tool classes and time periods are explained with a reference to details of tool use, such as the rate of edge wear development and stone tool exhaustion, as well as shifts in treatment of organic raw materials. The results suggest that domestic tools can aid in understanding long-term technological evolution, and create a baseline against which we can (re)assess the role of shifts observed in technologies that are more susceptible to morphological change, such as projectiles.

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.

The “Arabian babblers” are observed in the Neguev desert for more than 40 years. These birds live in cooperative groups. They offer presents to feed each other, they endanger themselves by mobbing raptors or by coming to the rescue of group members. They play and they also often dance together. All these behaviors have received various and controversial interpretations in the scientific literature. Following the actual field’s work, one may observe that these interpretations are closely linked to the way scientists observe the birds, or even deal with them. Different practices not only construe but actually “produce” different birds. Roughly said, some of the observers take a “subjectivist” stance and interact with the birds, the other one takes an “objectivist” stance, and keeps distance from them. Each of these practices has different effects, on the birds, and on the theories. These birds therefore appear just at the edge of the categories of wild/domesticated/feral, their identity seeming to change accordingly to the ethologist who observes them. [less ▲]

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.
