More and more efforts are undertaken to restore rivers in a state close to their natural conditions in order to meet the Water Framework Directive requirement. This directive commits EU member states to achieve a good ecological status of all their water bodies. It became thus very important to develop river restoration such as fish passages, bank renaturation, natural bars or meanders. Another important component of river restoration schemes is the decommissioning of man-made structures. These interventions can have significant impact on the river hydrology, hydraulics and morphology, such as bed degradation or aggradation, bank failures. Predicting these impacts of restoration schemes on the river, especially for large scale projects, should rely on detailed numerical studies. To achieve this goal, we develop a methodology to analyse different scenarios of river restoration based on several criteria related to flow, sediment transport and environment. This method is applied to the case of a French alpine river in which five hydropower plants will be replaced by a unique underground hydropower plant on the same section of river. [less ▲]

In this review of protein folding we consider the noncovalent interactions existing between atoms or molecules at the molecular level. The electrostatic, Van der Waals, hydrogen bonding, and hydrophobic interactions are described and their contribution to protein conformation is discussed. The growing interest in the hydrophobic effect arises from its importance in the protein folding process, and a semiempirical simulation of the free energy of solvation is proposed. In most proteins, the different forces we describe contribute to the stability of the protein conformation in a complex way. However, in the case of the apolipoproteins and cytochrome C551, the energetic contributions are easily distinguished. For this reason, these proteins are used to illustrate the importance of the different energy fields. [less ▲]

We investigated the peptides N-acetyl-AWYIK-amide and N-acetyl-VWYIK-amide corresponding to single amino acid substitutions in LWYIK, a segment found in the gp41 protein of HIV and believed to play a role in sequestering this protein to a cholesterol-rich domain in the membrane. The effects of these peptides on the thermotropic phase transitions of 1-stearoyl-2-oleoylphosphatidylcholine (SOPC) and mixtures of SOPC and cholesterol were intermediate between that having the wild-type sequence (LWYIK) and another (IWYIK), the least active peptide previously studied. This correlated with results from studies of single mutations in the gp41 protein of HIV-1, in which L679 of the LWYIK segment is replaced with either A or V, measuring the capability of TZM-BL HeLa-based HIV-1 indicator cells to form syncytia. The peptides were also comparatively analyzed in silico. All together, the results suggest that the mode of interaction of this region of gp41 with the polar heads of membrane lipids contributes to its cholesterol selectivity and that this is somehow related to the biological activity of the viral glycoprotein.

In 2006, the 17 percent of the world’s electricity that was generated from hydropower represented nearly 90 percent of renewable electricity generation worldwide; Hydropower is an important source of renewable energy and produces extremely small quantities of carbon dioxide. Between 1998 and 2008, renewable electricity production in the world rose from 2,794.9 to 3,762.6 TWh, i.e. an additional 967.6 TWh. As a final conclusion, despite hydropower’s high initial costs, its long-term overall costs tend to be low. The average cost of electricity production by hydropower is still very attractive for the moment. In the next future, hydropower will keep his position, in front of the other renewable sources of electricity, on the same level with biomass, better that wind power and much cheaper than solar energy.

Modern Earth models are constrained by an inertia coefficient y*=J(2)/H approximate to 0.3308 which leads to a so-called 'hydrostatic' flattening f(hyd) approximate to 1/299.9. The latter is in rather large disagreement with the observed flattening f approximate to 1/298.3. We show that a more satisfactory value of the inertia coefficient for constraining a standard Earth model is y approximate to 0.332, consistent with a hydrostatic flattening of about 1/298.6. The change of the value of the inertia coefficient from about 0.331 to about 0.332 significantly alters the density structure of the core, notably the density jump at the inner core boundary. It brings, as a by-produce, the hydrostatic values of J(2) and H to better agreement with the observed values than is presently thought, and most probably leads for the Slichter mode to a period of much longer than 5.42 h, which is the value computed for PREM.

The chemical compound Na(Na,Mn)(7)Mn-22(PO4)(18)center dot 0.5H(2)O was synthesized with a Tuttle pressure vessel at 800 degrees C and 1 kbar during experimental investigations on the conditions of fillowite formation. The crystal structure of a single-crystal, space group R (No. 148), a = 15.2741(9), c = 43.334(3) angstrom, Z = 6, was determined from X-ray intensity data and refined up to R-1 = 0.0728 and R-l{FO > 4 sigma(FO)} = 0.0546. The crystal structure of Na(Na,Mn)(7)Mn-22(PO4)(18)center dot 0.5H(2)O is similar to the structure of fillowite, Na6Ca3(Mn,Fe)(21)(PO4)(18.), but a significant difference between the synthetic H2O containing compound and fillowite is the replacement of (Na12)O-8(-) by Mn(H2O)(2)O-5(-) polyhedra, which form characteristic six-member rings. The coordination polyhedra around Na12 and Mn12 are so different that simple isomorphous substitution of Na12 by Mn12 is very unlikely, but whole six-member rings either of (Na12)O-8(-) or (Mn12)(H2O)(2)O-5 polyhedra seem to be distributed statistically over the crystal structure. No indication for ordering, e.g. sheet by sheet, has been observed. Na(Na,Mn)(7)Mn-22(PO4)(18)center dot 0.5H(2)O is the first fillowite-like compound for which water is located in the structure from single-crystal study. This result is proved by infrared spectral data and indicates that water can play an essential role in the fillowite structure-type. Structural features of the synthetic compounds Na(Na,Mn)(7)Mn-22(PO4)(18)center dot 0.5H(2)O, Na4Ca4Mg21(PO4)(18) and fillowite are compared. [less ▲]
