A reduction of the carbonate-carbon to organic-carbon export rain ratio during glacial times has been advanced to explain the glacial–interglacial atmospheric CO2 variations. This hypothesis is tested and implications for the dynamics of sedimentary carbonate preservation and dissolution are explored with a multi-box model (MBM) of the ocean carbon cycle, fully coupled to a new transient early diagenesis model (called MEDUSA). A peak reduction of the rain ratio by 40% at the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) was found to produce a net atmospheric pCO2 reduction of about 40 ppm. Changing shelf carbonate accumulation rates and continental weathering inputs produced a 55–60 ppm reduction. The combination of the two mechanisms generates a pCO2 change of 90–95 ppm, which compares well with the observed data. However, the resulting model sedimentary record does not conform to actual sedimentary records. The changes related to continental shelf processes and variable weathering flux depress the calcite saturation horizon (CSH) by about 1 km at the LGM; if rain ratio variations are also considered, that depression increases by another km. In addition to this large amplitude for the CSH, possibly due to the adopted box-model approach, the changing rain ratio also leads to transition zone changes in the model sedimentary record that are opposite in phase with data-based reconstructions. Realistic changes in the aragonite fraction of the carbonate rain were found to have only a minimal impact on atmospheric pCO2. Finally, chemical erosion of deep-sea sediment was shown to reduce the amplitude of variation of the sedimentary CCD by about 10–20%. It may provide a mechanism to improve the model-data agreement.

Glass transition phenomena applied to powdered amorphous food carbohydrates. During these last fifteen years, some food technologists and scientists have become aware of the importance of the glass transition, a thermal property of glassy or amorphous material, in food preparation processes. Recent studies have successfully correlated this fundamental notion to technofunctional changes within the powder. The aim of this paper is to present in a non exhaustive manner the relationship between glass transition characteristics and applications in food technology (caking, alterations, etc.). [less ▲]

The cochleo-vestibular ganglion contains neural crest-derived glial cells and sensory neurons that are derived from the neurogenic otic placode. Little is known about the molecular mechanisms that regulate the tightly orchestrated development of this structure. Here, we report that Sox10, a high-mobility group DNA-binding domain transcription factor that is required for the proper development of neural crest cell derivatives, is specifically expressed in post-migratory neural crest cells in the cochleo-vestibular ganglion. Using Sox10-deficient mice, we demonstrate that this transcription factor is essential for the survival, but not the generation, of the post-migratory neural crest cells within the inner ear. In the absence of these neural crest-derived cells, we have investigated the survival of the otocyst-derived auditory neurons. Surprisingly, auditory neuron differentiation, sensory target innervation and survival are conserved despite the absence of glial cells. Moreover, brain-derived neurotrophic factor expression is increased in the hair cells of Sox10-deficient mice, a compensatory mechanism that may prevent spiral ganglion neuronal cell death. Taken together, these data suggest that in the absence of neural crest-derived glial cells, an increase trophic support from hair cells promotes the survival of spiral ganglion neurons in Sox10 mutant mice.

Un guide, d’accord... mais pour quoi faire ? Nous tous sommes quotidiennement exposés à une variété inimaginable de risques. Au niveau individuel, ces risques sont liés à notre constitution personnelle, à nos activités, à nos relations sociales, et à nos biens matériels et immatériels. Ce n'est que lorsqu'ils se concrétisent que nous en subissons les effets, par exemple respectivement: allergie, chute à ski, divorce, panne de gsm ou trou de mémoire. À ces risques touchant la sphère privée, s'ajoutent les risques touchant tout ou partie de la société. Ces derniers proviennent soit de la société ellemême ou de ses composantes (e.g. pollution atmosphérique, émeute), soit de l'environnement naturel (e.g. tremblement de terre). 2. Pour les risques concernant la société, les autorités publiques ont mis en oeuvre une série de politiques pour rencontrer les attentes et besoins de la population. En cas de sinistres, l’intervention d’acteurs organisés (services d'incendie, de secours, de police, cellule de crise,...) permet de répondre aux situations d'urgence. De façon à améliorer cette réponse, des plans d'intervention et d'urgence sont établis. Ces plans trouvent leur fondement dans une démarche pro-active: l'analyse de risques. Le nombre des risques étant quasiment infini, il importe d’opérer des choix. Les objectifs de ce guide sont multiples : - aider les acteurs des cellules de sécurité à travailler ensemble; - proposer des moyens permettant d’opérer un choix à bon escient; - contribuer à la prise de décisions rationnelles en matière de planification; - favoriser les échanges entre les autorités territoriales et avec les entreprises privées; - ... 3. La démarche suivie par le projet GLIMMER repose sur l'apprentissage organisationnel. Cela implique d'une part le partage d'expériences, mais aussi de franchir des paliers avec l'ensemble des autorités publiques. Ce manuscrit est l'embryon d'un manuel plus développé. Vu la demande des autorités locales de commencer leur travail d'analyse de risques avec la présente méthode, le comité d'accompagnement a décidé de mettre à leur disposition ce guide qui contient le coeur de la méthode élaborée. Des bribes d'une version ultérieure peuvent donc apparaître de temps à autre dans ce document. 4. Cette première version du guide est divisée en quatre parties principales. La première partie vise à replacer le guide dans un contexte général (celui de la gestion des risques et de la planification) et particulier (celui la mise en place de cellules de sécurité). La deuxième partie a pour objectif de fournir un cadre théorique. Il s’agit principalement de rendre compréhensible des concepts parfois flous, polysémiques ou mal maîtrisés et de constituer un cadre de référence commun. La troisième partie n’a pour autre ambition que de fournir une aide à la mise en place des cellules de sécurité et à leur bon fonctionnement. La quatrième partie est dédiée aux méthodes d'analyse de risques. Enfin, le guide est agrémenté d’annexes dans lesquelles se trouvent outils, renseignements utiles, etc. [less ▲]

Among patients which develop glioblastoma multiform (GBM), recurrence is the rule despite continuous progress in surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy. In the adult, GBM is the most frequent and most aggressive tumour of the Central Nervous System. A better understanding of the mechanisms by which these tumours relapse could promote the use of preventive therapy and could increase patients' survival. GBM stem cells have been recently described and it was demonstrated that they are specifically implied in the experimental tumorigenesis. It is thus very attractive to speculate on a possible relationship between these GBM stem cells and the neural stem cells which are persisting in the neurogenic zones of the adult brain. In this review, we formulate and discuss the hypothesis by which, in a patient with GBM, malignant stem cells might be present in the neurogenic zones, away from the tumour mass. This hypothesis could explain the tumour relapse observed after the first treatments. [less ▲]
