Electric fields have been used to modify properties of dilute and dense granular materials. For the dilute case, we showed that electric fields can be used to inject kinetic energy on the material. We studied the dynamics of a single bead, two beads and three beads systems. The dynamics is described by a mathematical model which is in quantitative agreement with experiments. A synchronization effect is observed and it is described by a phase coupled oscillators model. We also show that electric fields can be used to tune the cohesion of dense granular media. A transition of the geometry of the flow is observed. Intermittences are induced by the electric field. [less ▲]

Le mésothéliome pleural est un cancer de la plèvre provoqué par l’inhalation de fibres d’amiante. Bien que cette maladie soit encore assez rare, une augmentation de sa fréquence est attendue vers 2010-2020. Dans le développement de cette maladie incurable, la dérégulation de l’expression de certains gènes semble jouer un rôle essentiel. Les histones désacétylases (HDACs), en modifiant la conformation de la chromatine, jouent le rôle de répresseur transcriptionnel. L’utilisation d’inhibiteurs d’ HDACs serait donc une façon de lutter contre ce type de cancer. Notre travail a tout d’abord consisté à étudier l’effet de deux de ces molécules (valproate et SAHA) sur l’apoptose, sur le cycle cellulaire et sur l’acétylation des histones. Ensuite, des combinaisons de molécules (inhibiteurs d’HDACs et composés de chimiothérapie) ont été testées de manière à rechercher un effet de synergie. Nos résultats mettent en évidence que les inhibiteurs d’HDACs provoquent l’augmentation des niveaux d’apoptose et l’arrêt du cycle cellulaire en phase G1. Différentes combinaisons de molécules permettent d’obtenir un effet additif voire une synergie. Parmi ces combinaisons, l’utilisation de l’adriamycine, de l’etoposide, du taxotère ou du TRAIL donne les meilleurs résultats. [less ▲]

Summary: The aim of this present research was to study the antifungal properties of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) isolated from fermented Mill flour and fermented cassava in order to use them for biopreservation. Antifungal activity of these LAB were assessed in MRS solid medium against food spoilage moulds as Aspergillus niger MUCL 28699, Aspergillus niger CWBIF194, Aspergillus tubingensis MP1 and Penicillium crustosum MY1. Three strains, Lactobacillus plantarum VE56, Weissella cibaria FMF4B16 and Weissella paramesenteroides LC11 were selected among 116 for their strongest inhibitory activity and their broad inhibitory spectrum against food moulds. The 4-fold concentrated supernatant of L. plantarum VE56 and W. paramesenteroides LC11 had the strongest inhibitory activity to compare to W. cibaria FMF4B16. The antifungal activity of the cell-free supernatant was pH dependent and insensitive to proteolytic enzymes action suggesting that the inhibitory activity was due to other compounds than proteins. The identification of antifungal compounds by chromatographic studies highlighted the production of phenyllactic acid by the three strains. In addition, 2-hydroxy-3-methylpentanoic acid and 2-hydroxy-4-methylpentanoic acid were produced by L. plantarum VE56 and W. paramesenteroides LC11. However, the concentration assessed in the supernatant was lower than the minimal inhibitory concentration showing a synergic action of all these produced compounds. The effect of the antifungal supernatant of L. plantarum VE56 and W. paramesenteroides LC11 on Aspergillus flavus NRRL 3357 resulted to an inhibition of conidial development and aflatoxin B1 production which was reflected in decreased gene expression of brlA (conidiophore specific transcription factor) and laeA (global regulator of secondary metabolism). These two bacteria also delayed Penicillium expansum MUCL 14498 conidial development in bread. [less ▲]

Cefquinome aerosol is sometimes used in horse suffering from respiratory infections. However, harmlessness and validity of the method has never been studied. This work aimed at controlling the lack of pulmonary effects of cefquinome when administered through inhalation in healthy horses and at comparing the cefquinome concentrations obtained in broncho-alveolar lavage after aerosol, intramuscular and intravenous administrations. A single aerosol of cefquinome did not induce any detectable side effect in healthy horses and allowed to obtain broncho-alveolar concentrations higher than obtained with intravenous and intramuscular injection. These results should now be completed by further studies, especially on horses suffering from respiratory disease and bronchial hyperreactivity [less ▲]

Summary On-site sanitation sector in sub-Saharan African is a complex area that requires the involvement of a multidimensional approach mobilizing various actors and competencies. The main purpose of this thesis is to conduct a study integrating the three links in the sanitation chain that compose the on-site sanitation sector, namely the upstream links regarding sanitation facilities installed at private homes, the intermediate link for evacuation of sludge and transport to a treatment site and the downstream link for disposal and treatment sludge. A sociological approach mobilizing both survey techniques and on-site observation has allowed understanding the on-site sanitation practices in the field of developing countries. Methodologies to initiate corrective action with respect to what is done so far are utilized. Such as a method for evaluating on-site sanitation using an indicator that is a combination of indicators developed taking into account the entire sanitation sector. At the same time, a procedure to select sanitation technologies based on a number of criteria was adopted. The proposed technologies as well as criteria used for their implementation follow the same logic as previously, i.e. that consisting of taking into account the entire sanitation sector. This study also examined the design procedure of the septic tank and of evaluated its performance on site given that it is used in many sanitation systems. Settling column tests were carried out show that the effluent who enters in the septic tank settles well but settable solids remain in the effluent leaving the septic tank remaining, parameter that needs to be taken into account in the establishment of the infiltration bed after the septic tank. Quantification of sludge accumulation rates in the septic tank shows that for a pump out period every 4 years, the design can be based on an average sludge accumulation rate of 0.22L/person/day. These values (as expressed in g COD/person/day) are useful both to assess withdrawal, but also to design sludge's disposal site. Analyses of these sludges reveal a poorly biodegradable product with a non-biodegradable COD fraction reaching 47.5%, thus as a product with a low methanogenic potential, limiting the interest of its application in anaerobic digestion as a substrate. But, their co-treatment with organic solids waste in a partial anaerobic co-digestion process followed by composting. In this case sludges are considered as digestion inoculums. Preliminary results are encouraging, particularly in terms of total time needed for the entire process. Among other advantages, this process reduces handling of the waste being processed and provides two end products directly recoverable: compost and methane. So we hope that this research will contribute to the establishment in African countries for more efficient on-site sanitation, able to meet the targets set by international organizations. [less ▲]
