Au printemps 1674, dans les rues de Douai, un jeune jésuite, étudiant en théologie, meurt assassiné dans les rues de Douai par un soldat devenu fou. En quelques semaines, les supérieurs du collège réécrivent ce sordide fait divers : ils érigent ce jeune homme en martyr, mort pour la foi et la gloire de la Compagnie. L’article tente de mettre en lumière les stratégies adoptées pour assoir la conviction du martyre et montre quels sont les enjeux de cette opération de redéfinition. [less ▲]

Four occasional measurements of the altitude distribution of the 2796-2803-Å doublet equatorial airglow have been made with the astronomical TD-1A satellite during winter 1973-1974. The observations indicate the presence of layers of Mg[SUP]+[/SUP] ions in the evening twilight F region in the African sector. Horizontal column densities reaching 8×10[SUP]9[/SUP]Mg[SUP]+[/SUP] ions/cm[SUP]2[/SUP] are observed with peak altitudes varying from 230 to 480 km. Steep topside gradients with scale heights of about 5 km are observed on three occasions. [less ▲]

The primary aim of bone scaffold is to restore, maintain and improve the structure and properties of damaged bones. The scaffold acts as a 3-D template for guided tissue-engineering and provides an excellent transition from in vitro to in vivo systems, avoiding auto- or allo-grafting treatments, both associated with serious limitations. The pore size of the scaffold must be large enough to allow cell migration and proliferation through the structure, but small enough to provide sufficient specific area for cell attachment. In this work, degradable poly(lactic acid) (PLA) yarns were knitted into complexes superstructures and evaluated as 3-D scaffold to promote cell bone reconstruction. PLA fabrics were knitted from multi-filaments in a double layer interlock structure to produce a weft knit. The fabrics are made of two porosities, one defined by the open space inside a loop (~1mm) and the second by the distance between the filaments (1-10 µm), with high control and reproducibility inherent to the manufacturing process. Human MG-63 osteoblast-like cells were seeded on PLA textiles and cell viability and proliferation were evaluated using MTS (tetrazolium salt) assays, DNA quantitative analysis (hoechst), fluorescence staining (acridine orange) and scanning electron microscopy. Alkaline Phosphatase activity in cell lysates was also investigated. After 3 days of culture, MG-63 fully expressed their fibroblastic phenotype. Although the number of cells was high, mitochondrial activity was shown to be reduced when cells are on the PLA fibres (compared to culture on a glass slide). This may be due the release of lactic acid by slow hydrolysis of PLA ester-bonds. Only a small population of cells was dead. Furthermore, it could be due to cells in a less active phase, such as cells entering the G0 phase, or in a maturing phase. From 6 to 12 days, the number of cell inside the PLA fabrics increased and typical fibroblastic morphology was maintained. Cells were mainly observed in the spaces between fibres. After 24 days of culture, MG-63 colonization is covering all the PLA knit. Small granular structures are present on the cell surface and low ALP concentration is detected, indicating the beginning of the differentiation process, rather than a toxic effect of PLA hydrolysis. This work shows that knitted PLA fabrics, seeded with autogeneous osteoblast cells can potentially be used as tissue-engineered implants for the treatment of bone defects. [less ▲]

Physical injury or pathological changes such as removal of a tumor can result in large bone defects, preventing the recovery of its original function. Autogenous bone grafting, which is the most common technique for bone defect repairing, is associated with serious limitations, e.g. limited supply and donor site morbidity. Since a few years bone tissue engineering by degradable biomaterials has been shown as a very promising avenue for providing bone substitutes. Among these materials, bioresorbable synthetic polymers such as poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO), poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA), poly(acrylic acid) (PAA) and poly(lactic acid) (PLA) are very appealing because their chemistry and properties are controllable and reproducible. Cellular activity and proliferation of osteosarcoma cell lines (MG-63) on films were determined by the tetrazolium salt MTT assay and by phase contrast/fluorescence microscope observations. The cytotoxicity of the materials was found to be low or negligible. Cells viability variations were observed on the surface of the films. Long-term cell culture and degradability of PLA-PEOpolymer film was investigated by optical microscopy (Giemsa staining) and environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM). Hydrolysis of the PLLA ester linkages led to slow film degradation. After 113 days, optical microscope observations revealed the presence of large cracks on the surface, and even breaks of small polymer fragments, while MG-63 proliferation was still very important, showing a tissue-like aspect, with extracellular matrix (ECM) deposition. These results show that PLA-PEO copolymers are very interesting bioresorbable materials for long-term bone tissue engineering applications. [less ▲]

Deep optical imaging and spectroscopy have been obtained for the well known radio Einstein ring MG1131 + 0456 with the ESO/NTT. The direct CCD frames show a red emission excess at the exact location of the radio ring. Subsequent subtraction of the lensing galaxy, assumed to be an elliptical galaxy, results in the detection of an optical ring which is strikingly similar to the radio ring. Gravitational lensing models, including source reconstruction, predicts that the source is likely a radio-galaxy for which both the optical and extended radio emissions are sufficiently distorted by the foreground lensing galaxy as to produce a nearly complete ring. The present spectroscopy and broad band photometry suggest that the lensing galaxy has a spectral energy distribution typical of a nonevolved elliptical, tentatively at z of 0.85. The radio-galaxy associated with the radio-ring is likely to be an elliptical at larger redshift, tentatively of 1.13. [less ▲]

While the hereditary nature of the double-muscling phenotype (a generalized muscular hypertrophy documented in several cattle breeds) is well established, its precise segregation mode has remained controversial. Both monogenic models (autosomal dominant or recessive) and oligogenic models have been proposed. Using a panel of 213 bovine microsatellite markers, and an experimental pedigree obtained by backcrossing double-muscled (Belgian Blue)xconventional (Friesian) F1 dams to double-muscled sire, we have mapped a locus on bovine Chromosome (Chr) 2 that accounts for all the phenotypic variance in the backcross generation. This locus, referred to as mh (muscular hypertrophy), has been positioned with respect to a map composed of seven Chr 2-specific microsatellites, at 2 cM from the closest marker. This result confirms the validity in the Belgian Blue population of the monogenic model involving an autosomal mh locus, characterized by a wild-type + and a recessive mh allele, causing the double-muscling phenotype in the homozygous condition. The linkage relationship between the mh locus and the Chr 2 markers was confirmed in three informative pedigrees collected from the general Belgian Blue Cattle population, reinforcing the notion of genetic homogeneity of the double-muscling trait in this breed. This work paves the way towards marker-assisted selection for or against the double-muscling trait, and towards positional cloning of the corresponding gene. [less ▲]

The outflow in SDSS J0300+0048 has the highest column density yet reported for a broad absorption line quasar. The absorption from different ions is also segregated as a function of velocity in a way that can only be explained by a disk wind outflow. Furthermore, the presence of the such large column densities of gas at the high observed outflow velocities may be incompatible with purely radiative acceleration. MHD contributions to the acceleration should be considered seriously. [less ▲]

The present study aimed at characterizing the acute and intermittent psychomotor responsiveness to cocaine in mice lacking the MCHR1 receptor, which is thought to modulate the mesocorticolimbic sytem functioning [Smith DG, Tzavara ET, Shaw J, Luecke S, Wade M, Davis R, et al. Mesolimbic dopamine super-sensitivity in melanin-concentrating hormone-1 receptor deficient mice. J Neurosci 2005;25:914-22]. On a first free-drug session, MCHR1-deficient mice exhibited significantly higher levels of locomotor activity elicited by the novelty of the test chambers than their wild-type counterparts. On the following day session, a first injection of 6 or 12mg/kg cocaine induced comparable dose-related psychomotor activations in both genotypes, without significant difference in the relative increase in locomotion. Over the following eight once-daily test sessions, the slight psychomotor increase induced by 6mg/kg was equivalent in both genotypes and constant over the sessions. At 12mg/kg, cocaine induced a clear-cut incremental responsiveness to cocaine in both genotypes on the three first sessions; on the following sessions, only the wild-types displayed an incremental responsiveness until the last session, a sensitized effect that was confirmed for the wild-types but not for the knockouts on a subsequent sensitization test (cocaine challenge). Finally, the knockouts did not exhibit any sign of cocaine-conditioning (saline challenge), contrarily to the wild-types. It is speculated that MCHR1 may contribute to the neurobiological mechanisms of conditioned cocaine-induced psychomotor effects, possibly to those underpinning sensitization, and to a lesser extent to those sub-serving acute pharmacological cocaine action.
