On peut distinguer dans la correspondance de Guichardin trois moments historiques au cours desquels la liberté est mise en danger par les armes. Premièrement, l’ambassade espagnole de 1512, lorsque le jeune Guichardin est envoyé en mission auprès du roi d’Espagne pour sonder ses intentions. Ensuite, l’année 1525, moment de constitution de la ligue de Cognac, durant laquelle Guichardin consacre une partie de son temps à la rédaction de discours contradictoires sur le meilleur comportement politico-militaire à adopter pour « libérer l’Italie ». Enfin, l’année 1527 qui voit le terrible sac de Rome. Si la notion de liberté est généralement associée au bien-être, à la paix et à la santé, de Florence dans la première période, de la péninsule dans le deuxième moment, de Florence et de la Péninsule dans le troisième et justifie – paradoxalement – le passage aux armes pour la défendre, la conserver ou, pire, la restituer, selon les moments, le mot « liberté » ne recouvre toutefois pas le même sens. Lorsqu’il s’agit de protéger Florence, Guichardin entend défendre l’autogestion de la ville pourtant sous gouvernement médicéen ; la « liberté commune » ou « liberté d’Italie » renvoient à la seule absence d’étrangers dans la péninsule, alors qu’en 1527, lors du retour à un gouvernement populaire à Florence, la « libertà della città » n’est autre que l’appellation pour désigner ce même gouvernement populaire républicain. Tandis que, sur le terrain, les soldats s’affrontent pour « libérer » tel morceau de l’Italie – au sens renaissant d’ensemble de cités-état vivant en équilibre – voire la péninsule entière de tout occupant étranger, dans ses lettres Guichardin mène le même combat, tentant par la force de la plume de faire fléchir les uns et de convaincre les autres, n’hésitant pas à exploiter les multiples sens recouverts par le mot « liberté ».

L’intervento sarà centrato sul materiale etnografico raccolto nel corso di una ricerca dottorale attorno alle pratiche culinarie di donne marocchine residenti nella città di Sesto San Giovanni (in provincia di Milano). In particolare, verranno messi in evidenza quegli aspetti della cultura materiale studiata che richiamano l’appartenenza delle donne considerate alla religione islamica. La ricerca ha infatti evidenziato come l’alimentazione (quotidiana o relativa a particolari eventi) e la stessa preparazione dei pasti siano influenzate non solo dalle prescrizioni che riguardano la distinzione tra il cibo lecito e quello illecito, ma anche da indicazioni relative a quali alimenti sia più opportuno consumare e in quali situazioni. Religione e tradizioni locali si intrecciano dando forma ad un sapere e un saper fare specifici, a loro volta negoziati dalle donne in questione al fine di far fronte alle costrizioni che il nuovo contesto in cui esse vivono impone. Tali aspetti costituiscono parte della materialità sulla e con la quale le donne considerate definiscono la propria soggettività, nel contesto domestico così come in quello pubblico. Verranno infatti illustrate anche le modalità in cui, seppur in spazi sovradeterminati, una partecipazione attiva delle donne alla vita sociale locale sia resa possibile grazie alla preparazione e presentazione di cibo, dando loro la possibilità di affermare anche pubblicamente la propria appartenenza religiosa ed eventuali rivendicazioni.

A dendritic morphology of crystals is often encountered in nature and seems to be a universal structure for systems grown from supersaturated solutions such as KC1 or NaC1. The observation of similar dendrites in bulk superconducting YBa2Cu307 covalent material leads us to correlate the cases. From a simple new kinetics mechanism, the understanding of such a crystal-growth peculiarity is discussed. The kinetic mechanism condition for the occurrence of dendritic shapes of growing crystals from multiphase systems is given through a relationship between the velocity of the growth front and classical thermodynamical quantities. Some simulated systems illustrate the observed features. [less ▲]

Aim. The objective of this study was to use in vivo PET/CT imaging as a validation tool for a novel human colorectal carcinoma model being developed in chicken chorioallantoic membrane (CAM). For this initial pilot study a cell line modeling colon cancer was selected and imaged using [18F]fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG). <br />Materials and methods. A window was made in the shell of fertilized chicken eggs and 3x106 SW1222 human colorectal carcinoma cells were implanted at day 10 post-fertilization. On day 17 the shell window was enlarged to allow direct injection of FDG (12.2 ± 4.5 MBq/egg) into a CAM blood vessel. During injection the egg was warmed on a heating pad. A mixture of ketamine/medetomidine (50 :1 mg/ml, 0.2 ml/egg) was injected into the albumin in some eggs to assess the effect of anesthesia. After FDG injection the egg was returned to the incubator for a 45 min uptake period before imaging. Imaging was performed on a Siemens Focus 120 microPET with structural CT on a General Electric eXplore CT120. A Minerve cell system allowed reproducible positioning between modalities. PET data was acquired in list mode before histogramming into a single 10 min frame for reconstruction using a 3D maximum a posteriori (MAP) method with all corrections except scatter. A standard 100 µm (theoretical) image resolution protocol (70 kV, 50 mA, 32 ms, 220 views) was used to obtain structural CT data. Image coregistration was performed in PMOD version 3.3. In a separate egg, the influence of added contrast on the CT data was investigated by adding iodinated contrast agent (Iobitridol 35 mgI/ml) to the albumin. <br />Results. FDG uptake was clear in chick and tumor, with notably high uptake at the major joints. Tumors were identified by localization of FDG uptake on the surface of the CAM. A lack of soft tissue contrast between tumor, CAM and albumin made precise structural identification of the tumor difficult. Anesthesia was crucial to image quality in both PET and CT. CT contrast between the soft tissues of the chick and surrounding albumin/structures was improved by addition of contrast agent. <br />Conclusion. For the first time we demonstrate successful imaging of FDG uptake in a human colorectal carcinoma chicken CAM model in ovo. Methods to improve structural data are under investigation and will be used in further studies. With such improvement, this model could be of great value to PET oncology imaging. [less ▲]

In isolated Acanthamoeba castellanii mitochondria respiring in state 3 with external NADH or succinate, the linoleic acid-induced purine nucleotide-sensitive uncoupling protein activity is able to uncouple oxidative phosphorylation. The linoleic acid-induced uncoupling can be inhibited by a purine nucleotide (GTP) when quinone (Q) is sufficiently oxidized, indicating that in A. castellanii mitochondria respiring in state 3, the sensitivity of uncoupling protein activity to GTP depends on the redox state of the membranous Q. Namely, the inhibition of the linoleic acid-induced uncoupling by GTP is not observed in uninhibited state 3 respiration as well as in state 3 respiration progressively inhibited by complex III inhibitors, i.e., when the rate of quinol (QH(2))-oxidizing pathway is decreased. On the contrary, the progressive decrease of state 3 respiration by declining respiratory substrate availability (by succinate uptake limitation or by decreasing external NADH concentration), i.e., when the rate of Q-reducing pathways is decreased, progressively leads to a full inhibitory effect of GTP. Moreover, in A. castellanii mitochondria isolated from cold-treated cells, where a higher uncoupling protein activity is observed, the inhibition of the linoleic acid-induced proton leak by GTP is revealed for the same low values of the Q reduction level.

In search of a physiological role for thiamine triphosphate and the 25-kDa thiamine triphosphatase L. BETTENDORFF, B. LAKAYE, G. KOHN AND P. WINS GIGA-Neurosciences, University of Liège, 4000-Liège, Belgium Thiamine triphosphate (ThTP) was discovered over 60 years ago. Although it is present in most organisms from bacteria to mammals, its possible biological functions remain unclear. In contrast to thiamine diphosphate (ThDP), it is not a coenzyme. In E. coli cells, ThTP is transiently produced in response to amino acid starvation, while in mammalian cells, it is constitutively produced at a low rate. In some animal tissues, ThTP was able to phosphorylate proteins and activate a high-conductance anion channel in vitro. These observations raised the possibility of ThTP being part of a still uncharacterized cellular signaling pathway. Though it was long thought that ThTP is synthesized by a specific ThDP:ATP phosphotransferase, more recent studies indicate that two main mechanisms are involved: (1) in the cytosol adenylate kinase 1 can catalyze ThTP production from ThDP and ADP and (2) in brain mitochondria FoF1-ATP synthase can catalyze ThTP production from ThDP + Pi. The latter reaction is energized by the respiratory chain through a chemiosmotic mechanism analogous to oxidative phosphorylation. Both mechanisms are conserved from bacteria to mammals. While ThTP synthesis does not seem to require a specific enzyme, its hydrolysis in mammalian tissues is catalyzed by a very specific cytosolic 25 kDa thiamine triphosphatase (ThTPase). Because of this activity, steady-state ThTP levels are kept low in mammalian cells. ThTPase belongs to the CYTH superfamily of proteins which has representatives in all superkingdoms of life acting on tripolyphosphate and various triphosphorylated substrates. Although the whole chromosome region containing the ThTPase gene was lost in birds, orthologs of the ThTPase gene were found in all other known metazoan genomes. It seems that ThTPase activity appeared as a secondary acquisition of the CYTH proteins in the lineage leading from cnidarians to vertebrates. In particular, the Trp-53 residue of mammalian ThTPases plays a key role in substrate recognition and specificity by interacting with the thiazole part of ThTP. This residue is conserved in metazoan CYTH proteins with ThTPase activity. In order to gain insight into the physiological function(s) of the ThTP-ThTPase couple, we tried to produce a mouse invalidated in 25-kDa ThTPase. Surprisingly, we were unable to obtain any knockout animal, apparently because ThTPase seems to be required for spermatogenesis. As we previously showed that the enzyme is much more abundant in differentiated versus undifferentiated cells, we suspect that 25-kDa ThTPase might play a more general and important role during cell differentiation.

An examination protocol for rapid detection of remnants of blood particles on garments of suspects in bloody murder cases is described. Micro particles of blood are sampled along with fibres and hairs using the tape lifting method. The tapings are searched with a low power microscope for red particles with morphology similar to blood. Presumed blood traces are further examined using microspectrophotometry on the cut out piece of taping. The typical visible spectrum of haemoglobin is characteristic for blood. Alternatively Raman spectroscopy can be used to measure the characteristic vibrational spectrum of haemoglobin. At a later stage, these particles may be removed from the piece of taping in order to extract the blood and attempt to obtain a genetic profile. [less ▲]
