La complexité en nombre d'états (state complexity) d'un langage régulier est le nombre d'états de son automate minimal. La complexité syntaxique est le cardinal du monoïde syntaxique associé. La première ne prend en compte que le contexte à droite alors la seconde considère les contextes à gauche et à droite. Nous nous intéressons aux liens entre les nombres et leurs représentations. Dans le système décimal, un nombre est pair si sa représentation se termine par 0, 2, 4, 6 ou 8, ce qui donne lieu à ensemble de représentations simple, c'est-à-dire reconnu par automate. Plus généralement, dans une base entière, tout critère de divisibilité se traduit par un automate. Etant donné un ensemble d'entiers, nous voulons répondre aux questions suivantes. Quel est le nombre d'états de l'automate minimal associé. Quelle est la complexité syntaxique associée ? Ces questions s'étendent à des numérations plus générales. Ces problèmes sont motivés par des problèmes de décidabilité. Par exemple : étant donné un automate reconnaissant un ensemble d'entiers, décider si cet ensemble est ou non ultimement périodique.

By screening uronic acid-based surfactant interfacial properties, the effect of the hydroxyl group stereochemistry (OH-4) on the conformation of bicatenary (disubstituted) derivatives at the air–water interface has been evidenced by experimental and computational approaches. Physical and optical properties of a monolayer characterized by Langmuirfilmbalance, Brewster angle microscopy, and ellipsometry at 20°C reveal that the derivative of glucuronate (C14/14–GlcA) forms a more expanded monolayer, and shows a transition state under compression, in the opposite to that of galacturonate (C14/14–GalA). Both films are very mechanically resistant (compression modulus > 300m Nm-1) and stable (collapse pressure exceeding 60mNm-1), while that of C14/14–GalA exhibits a very high compression modulus up to 600mNm-1 like films in the solid state. Computational approaches provide single and assembly molecular models that corroborate the molecule expansion degree and interactions data from experimental results. Differences in the molecular conformation and film behaviours of uronic acid bicatenary derivatives at the air–water interface are attributed to the intra-H-bonding formation, which is more favourable with an OH-4 in the axial (C14/14–GalA) than in the equatorial position (C14/14–GlcA).

The purpose of the present work is to model and to simulate the Coupling between the electric and mechanical fields. A new finite element approach is proposed to model strong electro-mechanical coupling in micro-structures with capacitive effect. The proposed approach is based oil it monolithic formulation: the electric and the mechanical fields are solved simultaneously in the same formulation. This method provides a tangent stiffness matrix for the total coupled problem which allows to determine accurately the pull-in voltage and the natural frequency of electro-mechanical systems such as MEMs. To illustrate the methodology results are Shown For the analysis of a micro-bridge.

BACKGROUND: SELDI-TOF mass spectrometry (MS) is a high-throughput proteomic approach with potential for identifying novel forms of serum biomarkers of arthritis. METHODS: We used SELDI-TOF MS to analyze serum samples from patients with various forms of inflammatory arthritis. Several protein profiles were collected on different Bio-Rad Laboratories ProteinChip arrays (CM10 and IMAC-Cu(2+)) and were evaluated statistically to select potential biomarkers. RESULTS: SELDI-TOF MS analyses identified several calgranulin proteins [S100A8 (calgranulin A), S100A9 (calgranulin B), S100A9*, and S100A12 (calgranulin C)], serum amyloid A (SAA), SAA des-Arg (SAA-R), and SAA des-Arg/des-Ser (SAA-RS) as biomarkers and confirmed the results with other techniques, such as western blotting, immunoprecipitation, and nano-LC-MS/MS. The S100 proteins were all able to significantly differentiate samples from patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), and ankylosing spondylitis (AS) from those of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases used as an inflammatory control (IC) group, whereas the SAA, SAA-R, and SAA-RS proteins were not, with the exception of AS. The 4 S100 proteins were coproduced in all of the pathologies and were significantly correlated with the plasma calprotectin concentration; however, these S100 proteins were correlated with the SAA peak intensities only in the RA and IC patient groups. In RA, these S100 proteins (except for S100A12) were significantly correlated with the serum concentrations of C-reactive protein, matrix metalloproteinase 3, and anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide and with the Disease Activity Score (DAS(28)). CONCLUSIONS: The SELDI-TOF MS technology is a powerful approach for analyzing the status of monomeric, truncated, or posttranslationally modified forms of arthritis biomarkers, such as the S100A8, S100A9, S100A12, and SAA proteins. The fact that the SELDI-TOF MS data were correlated with results obtained with the classic calprotectin ELISA test supports the reliability of this new proteomic technique. [less ▲]

To maximize the efficacy of chronic osteomyelitis antibiotherapy while reducing antibiotic systemic toxicity, as well as time and costs of hospitalizations, it has been thought that monoolein-water gels incorporating gentamicin sulfate could be used as local, bioresorbable,and sustained-release implants. For this purpose, four formulations were examined with regard to their physicochemical and in vitro drug release characteristics. Hot stage microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA),and X-ray diffraction showed cubic liquid crystalline and eutectic structures. The more suitable formulation consisting of 80-15-5%wt/wt monoolein-water-gentamicin sulfate progressively released the antibiotic for a period of 3 weeks without burst effect. Moreover, the content and the release profile of gentamicin sulfate were not significantly changed after storage at 2-6 degrees C for a period of 10 months. [less ▲]

We develop the formalism of the macroscopic monopolization—that is, the magnetoelectric monopole moment per unit volume—in periodic solids, and discuss its relationship to the magnetoelectric effect. For the series of lithium transition metal phosphate compounds, we use first-principles density functional theory to calculate the contributions to the macroscopic monopolization from the global distribution of magnetic moments within the unit cell, as well as from the distribution of magnetization around the atomic sites. We find one example within the series (LiMnPO4) that shows a macroscopic monopolization corresponding to a ferromonopolar ordering consistent with its diagonal magnetoelectric response. The other members of the series (LiMPO4, with M=Co, Fe, and Ni) have zero net monopolization but have antiferromonopolar orderings that should lead to q-dependent diagonal magnetoelectric effects.

We present four children from two families with the typical 11q- phenotype resulting from an unbalanced segregation of a parental translocation. In the first family, the father had a 46,XY,t(5;11)(q24;q23.3) constitution. The father of the three other children had a 46,XY,t(11;17)(q23;p13) translocation. Despite associated partial deletion, three of the children had a typical 11q- phenotype. The fourth one, whose pregnancy was terminated in the second trimester, had a hypoplastic left heart but no other considered gross anomalies. A review of 36 previous cases, including 5 due to translocations (4 familial rearrangements, and 1 of unknown origin) is given with emphasis on the relationships between break-points and phenotype. Undescribed manifestations in our patients include agenesis of corpus callosum adactyly and malrotation of the gut. [less ▲]

CONTEXT: Glioblastomas--uniformly fatal brain tumors--often have both monosomy of chromosome 10 and gains of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene locus on chromosome 7, an association for which the mechanism is poorly understood. OBJECTIVES: To assess whether coselection of EGFR gains on 7p12 and monosomy 10 in glioblastomas promotes tumorigenic epidermal growth factor (EGF) signaling through loss of the annexin A7 (ANXA7) gene on 10q21.1-q21.2 and whether ANXA7 acts as a tumor suppressor gene by regulating EGFR in glioblastomas. DESIGN, SETTING, AND PATIENTS: Multidimensional analysis of gene, coding sequence, promoter methylation, messenger RNA (mRNA) transcript, protein data for ANXA7 (and EGFR), and clinical patient data profiles of 543 high-grade gliomas from US medical centers and The Cancer Genome Atlas pilot project (made public 2006-2008; and unpublished, tumors collected 2001-2008). Functional analyses using LN229 and U87 glioblastoma cells. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Associations among ANXA7 gene dosage, coding sequence, promoter methylation, mRNA transcript, and protein expression. Effect of ANXA7 haploinsufficiency on EGFR signaling and patient survival. Joint effects of loss of ANXA7 and gain of EGFR expression on tumorigenesis. RESULTS: Heterozygous ANXA7 gene deletion is associated with significant loss of ANXA7 mRNA transcript expression (P = 1 x 10(-15); linear regression) and a reduction (mean [SEM]) of 91.5% (2.3%) of ANXA7 protein expression compared with ANXA7 wild-type glioblastomas (P = .004; unpaired t test). ANXA7 loss of function stabilizes the EGFR protein (72%-744% increase in EGFR protein abundance) and augments EGFR transforming signaling in glioblastoma cells. ANXA7 haploinsufficiency doubles tumorigenic potential of glioblastoma cells, and combined ANXA7 knockdown and EGFR overexpression promotes tumorigenicity synergistically. The heterozygous loss of ANXA7 in approximately 75% of glioblastomas in the The Cancer Genome Atlas plus infrequency of ANXA7 mutation (approximately 6% of tumors) indicates its role as a haploinsufficiency gene. ANXA7 mRNA transcript expression, dichotomized at the median, associates with patient survival in 191 glioblastomas (log-rank P = .008; hazard ratio [HR], 0.667; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.493-0.902; 46.9 vs 74.8 deaths/100 person-years for high vs low ANXA7 mRNA expression) and with a separate group of 180 high-grade gliomas (log-rank P = .00003; HR, 0.476; 95% CI, 0.333-0.680; 21.8 vs 50.0 deaths/100 person-years for high vs low ANXA7 mRNA expression). Deletion of the ANXA7 gene associates with poor patient survival in 189 glioblastomas (log-rank P = .042; HR, 0.686; 95% CI, 0.476-0.989; 54.0 vs 80.1 deaths/100 person-years for wild-type ANXA7 vs ANXA7 deletion). CONCLUSION: Haploinsufficiency of the tumor suppressor ANXA7 due to monosomy of chromosome 10 provides a clinically relevant mechanism to augment EGFR signaling in glioblastomas beyond that resulting from amplification of the EGFR gene.

Terpenes are recurrent in indoor environments. Their sources, biogenic or anthropological origin, are very varied: plants, wooden building materials, household products and furnishings, paints, air fresheners, perfumed candles. However, in spite of their natural character, these compounds can have significant effects on occupant’s health. Indeed, some monoterpenes are recognized as irritating or allergenic. Furthermore, they react with the other molecules to form potentially more harmful secondary products such as formaldehyde. Numerous studies demonstrated that reactions between monoterpenes and ozone produced airborne particulate matter as well as secondary pollutants among which formaldehyde, acetaldehyde and acetone. However, few studies were realized in the indoor to demonstrate the terpenes and secondary pollutants evolution. The most frequently used technique for the monoterpenes analysis is the TD-GC-MS. The sampling mode depends on the sample introduction system, either the sampling on sorbent tube, or the sampling in a tank. The attraction for the wooden constructions and ecological materials leads to higher indoor monoterpenes concentrations. Does this occurrence have to arouse our interest? The present article has the objective to review the knowledge relative to terpenes, and more exactly on the monoterpenes sources in indoor and their implication in its quality. [less ▲]
