Pharmaceutical research is looking for new alternatives to manage the metabolic disorders associated with obesity. In this context, 11beta hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase type 1 (11HSD1) represents an interesting target. Indeed, this enzyme activates the transformation of inactive cortisone into active cortisol in various tissues. Therefore, it may be responsible for a local hypercortisolism, in adipose tissue and/or liver, which may be implicated in the pathogenesis of abdominal obesity, metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. Thus, the inhibition of 11HSD1 may represent a potential pharmacological target and an innovative therapeutic goal. Several studies in both animals and humans led to the development of specific 11HSD1 inhibitors, with promising preliminary results. Indeed, a reduction in insulin resistance and significant improvements in carbohydrate and lipid profiles have been reported. The present article describes the rationale that led to the development of specific 11HSD1 inhibitors and briefly reports the first results obtained with these molecules, which may become a new class of antidiabetic agents in the future.

The relative position of terranes during the Palaeozoic can be indicated by a combination of palaeomagnetic and floral/faunal evaluation. Palaeomagnetic data are absent from the Moesian Terrane, South-Eastern Europe, and its position is here estimated thanks to palaeophytogeographic considerations based on miospore assemblages. Miospore assemblages have been studied in two boreholes from northern Bulgaria. Preliminary analyses of chitinozoans, acritarchs and phytodebris have already been published. The oldest samples were considered to be of Pridoli age based on chitinozoan data, but here we provide new miospore evidence suggesting a Lochkovian age. This age determination is in accordance with the new interpretations based on previously published acritarch data. It is likely that the previous Pridoli age determination was influenced by Pridoli chitinozoans being reworked into the Lochkovian. The miospores are typical of assemblages only present in a small area of Avalonia and the western part of the Baltica Plate, and belong to the sinuosus-zavallatus (S-Z) Phytogeographic Province, defined here. On the contrary to the miospores, marine palynomorphs have affinity with Gondwanan assemblages. The different palaeogeographic affinities of the different palynomorph groups are not necessarily in contradiction, as it has recently been suggested that the Rheic Ocean did not act, around the Silurian-Devonian boundary, as a hermetic barrier for transoceanic chitinozoan and acritarch exchange. Therefore, the results are tentatively interpreted as indicating that the Moesian Terrane, belonging to the S-Z Province, was close to southern Laurussia during the Lower Devonian. This northern position of the Moesian Terrane during the Lower Devonian conflicts with most current palaeogeographic reconstructions, but partially supports the hypothesis of a migration of this terrane from Gondwana to Laurussia during the Palaeozoic. The possible presence of reworked palynomorphs in the Lochkovian may reflect early tectonic events associated with the close proximity of the Moesian Terrane and the Dobrudgea periphery of Palaeo-Europe.

Cet article présente une importante collection de gravures, actuellement conservée au Trésor de la cathédrale de Liège, constituée au XVIIIe siècle par un moine de l’abbaye cistercienne du Val-Dieu (Aubel, belgique), Servais Duriau, et demeurée inédite. Cet ensemble, riche de plus de douze mille pièces présentées dans dix-neuf albums reliés, est ainsi décrit et analysé dans une perspective historique. Nous nous intéressons ensuite à la biographie du moine Duriau et à l’évolution de la collection, depuis le siècle des Lumières jusqu’à nos jours. [less ▲]

Poppo, the abbot at Stavelot-Malmedy died in the abbey of Marchiennes in Hainaut on 25 January 1048. The scene of the saint's death, which his hagiographer described in grand manner some ten years later, deserves to be examined closely, as indeed the staging of his funeral, this stepping onto the threshold of "rebirth" into eternal life and sainthood (dies natalis). The Vita Popponis follows the rules of the hagiographic genre, in which the monk's death is inevitably highlighted. [less ▲]

Results of a comparative geographic analysis of 3 dimensional characters (in males) and of plumage (in both sexes) in sympatric populations of the House sparrow, Passer domesticus, and of the Spanish sparrow, Passer hispaniolensis, collected in February and March in western Algeria. Tail length shows a significant geographic variation in males of both sparrows, and wing length in males of Spanish sparrow. Coincidence of geographical variation in feather dimensions of the two taxa suggests a parallelism, owing to common environmental pressures. Plumage colour of the House sparrow varies geographically : on that account the specimens collected in Bechar oasis differed from those examined in northern localities. [less ▲]
