En parallèle à la production de biocarburant, le second objectif du bioraffinage est la transformation des sucres issus de l’hydrolyse de la lignocellulose en produits d’intérêt, qui se substitueront aux produits de la vie courante issus du pétrole. L’une des voies de valorisation envisageable est la synthèse de molécules amphiphiles par greffage de chaînes grasses sur le sucre. Ces composés trouveraient alors des applications dans de très nombreux domaines utilisant les tensioactifs (alimentaire, détergence, peinture,…) . Dans le cadre du programme d’excellence TECHNOSE et du projet d’Action de Recherche Concertées SUPERZYM, deux sucres ont été testés : un polyol, le D-mannose, et un sucre acide, l’acide D-glucuronique. Afin de conférer un caractère amphiphile à la molécule, les lipases ont été utilisées en tant qu’outils d’estérification. Ces triglycérides hydrolases sont en effet capables de catalyser ce type de réaction, et de nombreux exemples dans la littérature démontrent le fort potentiel industriel de ces enzymes , . L’estérification du D-mannose et de l’acide D-glucuronique a donc été mise en œuvre en présence de la lipase de Candida antarctica B (Novozyme 435). La réaction est effective, mais l’ajout de co-solvants tels que la pyridine ou le DMSO améliore les vitesses initiales et les rendements de la réaction. Ces améliorations seront discutées et comparées sur ce poster. [less ▲]

For ages, anxiety has been pointed out as the main etiological factor for sexual dysfunction. Since Wolpe, Masters & Johnson and Kaplan, the understanding of the influence of stress on sexual reactions has greatly evolved. This article retraces the milestones of such an evolution. In two decades, the reciprocal inhibitory theory has been replaced by a theory describing more accurately the complex relationship between anxiety and excitation. The combined development of plethysmography and cognitive psychology has greatly contributed to clarify this relationship. Indeed, the relationship between anxiety and sexual arousal appears more complex than originally recognized. Plethysmography directly measures genital vasocongestion at presentation of erotic stimuli and thus permits an objective assessment of sexual arousal in varied circumstances (erotic, anxiety producing, neutral or distracting). In studies using this paradigm, anxiety appears to have a non linear influence on sexual arousal: sometimes it is inhibitory, other times it is facilitative. Articulating the results obtained using plethysmography with the latest development in cognitive sciences, the following hypothesis came to mind: erotophobia could be considered of factor of vulnerability towards cognitive interference. In a sexual situation, erotophobic subjects focus primarily upon danger related information. This could engender a massive irruption of non erotic cues (non relevant task information) in working memory. Therefore, cognitive function available for sexual arousal would be diminished and sexual activity would be impaired. This hypothesis brings light onto the inhibitory effect of anxiety on sexual arousal among dysfunctional subjects. When this cognitive interference is not present, anxiety rather reinforces sexual arousal: either by increasing the focus of attention towards sexual cues or by misinterpreting the physiological reactions induced by the stressful situation as being sexual in origin.

From day 103 in gestation until farrowing, 4 successive groups of 15 sows received 70 g per day of one of the 3 following oils: 1) coconut oil (CO); 2) fish oil (FO) and 3) shark liver oil (SO). At day 102 of gestation, at farrowing and at weaning, backfat thickness of the sows was determined. The total number of piglets, the number of piglets born alive, stillborn and dead during the suckling period and the duration of gestation were measured. At birth as well as 24 hours, 14 days and 28 days (weaning) later, the piglets were weighed individually. Colostrum samples were collected at farrowing and 24 hours later for the determination of IgG and IgA contents and the fatty acid profile. Neither performance parameters of the sows nor IgG and IgA concentrations in colostrum were affected by the different dietary treatments. This was probably due to the short duration of trial period in which the oil supplements were administered. However, the colostral fatty acid profiles reflected very well the profiles of the supplemented oils. Furthermore, the different treatments affected the growth performances of the piglets. At weaning, the piglets from the FO treatment were respectively 263 and 329 g heavier than the piglets from the SO and CO treatments (P < 0.05). This corresponded to 4.2 % and 5.8 % increase of the ADG in comparison to the SO and CO treatments, respectively. These results show the importance of the fatty acid composition in colostrum on the performances of piglets and consequently the importance of the feeding of sows at the end of gestation. [less ▲]

Estrogen replacement therapy in postmenopausal women is followed by several benefits including a prompt improvement of quality of life. Due to uterine proliferation induced by prolonged estrogen intake, progestogens are usually associated, on a cyclical basis, in hormonal replacement therapy prescribed to non-hysterectomized women. Persistence of the beneficial effect of estrogen on quality of life, during progestogens intake, was never investigated. We evaluated, through a specific and previously validated questionnaire, the changes in quality of life observed in 351 women recently menopaused, after 6 months of hormonal replacement therapy associating 24 days of estrogens and 12 days of administration of a non androgenic progestogen: nomegestrol acetate. Patients were randomized within two therapeutic groups in which evaluation of quality of life was performed either during the administration of estrogen alone or during administration of estrogen and progestogen. In the two groups, hormonal replacement therapy was followed by a significant improvement (P < 0,001) in quality of life and no significant difference was observed between the changes observed during estrogen or estrogen-progestogen administration. Quality of life indices measured after 6 months of hormonal replacement therapy are within the same range than values previously described in eugonadal women. We conclude that improvement of quality of life induced by estrogen replacement therapy remains unchanged during cyclical administration of nomegestrol acetate. [less ▲]

Influence of row spacing and nitrogen fertilizer on Brachiaria ruziziensis (Germain and Evrard) Crins seed production and quality in a tropical subhumid climate Row spacing and nitrogen fertilizer had influenced in various way seed yield and quality. A 3-year experiment was conducted on ferruginous soils of subhumid zone of West Africa to evaluate the influence of 3 row spacings (20, 40 and 80 cm) and 4 nitrogen levels (0, 50, 100 and 200 kg Nha-1) on Brachiaria ruziziensis (Germain and Evrard) Crins (commun type) seed production, quality and dry matter production. Rainfall recorded during experiment was between 1050 and 1210 mm/year. Plots were allocated in a completely randomised block design with 4 replications per treatment. The results show that seed yield, seed fertility, diaspore and caryopsis weight varied between 26 and 114 kgha-1, 45 and 93 %, 327 and 601 mg and 219 and 475 mg, respectively. Effects of row spacing and N levels were variable through years. During the first experiment year, 20 and 40 cm row width produced significantly (p < 0.01) more seed than 80 cm row spacing but there was no significant difference between 20 and 40 cm row spacings. In the two subsequent years, row spacing had not influence seed yield. For fertilizer, N level of 50 or 100 kgha-1 had produced significantly more seed than 0 or 200 kg Nha-1 during the first year but no significant difference had been observed between 50 and 100 kg Nha-1. In the second year, seed yield ranged in the order: F50 = F100 > F200 > F0 (p < 0.05). In the third year, the ranking was: F100 > F50 > F200 > F0 (p < 0.05). Row spacing had no influence on seed fertility and seed germination. N fertilizer had significantly influenced seed fertility, diaspore weight and germination but had no effect on caryopsis weight or germination rate. It can be concluded that spacing row of 40 cm would be recommended. N fertilizer input at the rate of 50 kgha-1 is necessary during the establishment year. In the second and third years, 50 and 100 kg of Nha-1 should be applied, respectively, for optimum seed yield and quality. [less ▲]

Opala municipality is known for isolation and the precarious conditions of survival for the population. Natural factors such as climate, forest environment, soil erosion and socio-cultural factors contribute to its isolation. Since Independence, wars and unrests were added to these factors. After a theoretical approach that analyzes the spatial and territorial issues, the general framework of economic policies and institutional contexts are specified in the thesis. A focus is placed on the poor infrastructures that resulted in isolation of a large part of the Congolese territory. In Opala, a code of community life, the Lilwa, relatively coercive or restrictive regulates social relationships. It contributes to the cognitive confinement of the Mbole, majority ethnic in Opala, making them suspicious and less receptive to new technical innovations. However, it is, at the same time, a solid foundation of social cohesion, based on which should be based any strategy for integral development of the municipality. The thesis includes an empirical research based on a sample of 120 farming households spread over four geographic areas selected according to the distance from Kisangani. The analysis of the main variables used in this research highlights an adaptation of farming systems in relation to isolation. Furthermore, it is important to emphasize the multidimensional nature of poverty, affected by low agronomic performance and lack of infrastructure. The thesis concludes with recommendations for a revival of economic activities in Opala. [less ▲]

In most sub-Saharan African countries, the establishment of Jatropha curcas L. plantations preceded the scientific investigations necessary to optimize the production of this species. Consequently, the development of the plants was low and yields during the first years of cultivation were mostly disappointing. The low yields obtained in marginal conditions led to the belief that the cultivation of Jatropha could only be profitable in areas with fertile soils and sufficiently humid climates, which would place the plants in direct competition with food production. This article analyzes the available scientific knowledge regarding the ecological and technical factors influencing the productivity of J. curcas and suggests possible solutions for improving its performance in sub-Saharan Africa.

Our goal in this study is to estimate through ranges of variation, the impact of agricultural parcels soil’s tilth and roughness, due to cultivation techniques, on the exactness of ground control points elevation surveyed by RTK (Real Time Kinematic) GPS (Global Positioning System). So, 16 point’s elevations which were located each 100 mm on a transect have been surveyed first by using a total station (TS), and then a RTK GPS in 2 parcels (3 transects per parcel). Cultivation techniques on those parcels were different. The parcel 1 was tilled, and the soil of parcel 2 was prepared for cereal cropping. Then, the analysis of variance has been applied on the differences of TS and RTK GPS elevations data to estimate the confidence interval of ground control points elevation due (i) to soil tilth, whereas the times series statistical method have been applied on elevation data to estimate the confidence interval due (ii) to soil roughness. The confidence intervals of points elevation are estimated being (i) [51 mm; 57 mm], (ii) [-4 mm; 4 mm] for parcel 1, and (i) [97 mm; 113 mm], (ii) [-35 mm; 23 mm], for parcel 2. Results show that ground control point’s elevations exactness is influenced by soil tilth and soil roughness. In conclusion, we can admit that soil tilth and soil roughness have significant impact on the exactness of ground control points located on agricultural parcels. This impact must be considered in DEM errors evaluation of agricultural watershed. [less ▲]

Au cours de la dernière décennie, le rendement des cultures de blé a largement progressé essentiellement grâce à l'amélioration génétique et aux performances accrues en matière de fertilisation et de protection de la culture. L'amélioration génétique a petit à petit transformé la plante de blé: l'accroissement du potentiel de rendement repose principalement sur l'amélioration des composantes du rendement déterminées tardivement: fertilité des épis et capacité de remplissage des grains. La part de matière sèche produite à partir du stade dernière feuille devient prépondérante. La fertilisation azotée de la culture s'adapte à cette évolution: report d'une partie de la fumure en cours de montaison (France), renforcement de la fraction de la fumure apportée au stade dernière feuille (Belgique). Le glissement d'une part de la fumure azotée vers des stades plus avancés de la culture modifie les données de l'interaction entre les maladies cryptogamiques et la fumure la pression des maladie diminue en début de montaison mais s'accentue en fin de végétation. Dès lors, les programmes de protection fongicides devraient privilégier la protection des organes supérieurs de la plante: dernière feuille et épi. Les nouveaux fongicides de la famille des strobilurines sont dans cette optique des outils très intéressants. [less ▲]
