En ces temps d’actualité terroriste, politiques, journalistes et citoyens partagent un même constat : « nous avons été attaqués dans nos libertés fondamentales. » À en croire les expressions qu’elles adoptent sur les réseaux sociaux, ces libertés fondamentales sont surtout des droits. Droit de vivre ses passions, ses désirs, ses amours, droit d’aller en terrasse, droit de boire encore des bières, de manger des frites et des moules. La circulation virale de multiples pieds-de-nez épicuriens après les attentats de ce 22 mars 2016 rappelle une fois de plus que, conformément aux clichés, le belge aime rire, bien manger et se moquer de tout qui s’attaquerait à sa belgitude. Faut-il pour autant y trouver la consolidation de ce que les terroristes risqueraient de nous dérober ? [less ▲]

Mannheimiosis is the major respiratory disease among some ruminants, whereas it is not pathogenic for other mammals, an observation that has been attributed to a specific interaction between Mannheimia haemolytica leukotoxin (Lkt) and bovine or ovine CD18 subunit of lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1 (LFA-1) and Mac-1. We therefore hypothesized that Lkt utilizes CD18 as its receptor on caprine leukocytes as well. We have transiently transfected the b2-integrins-deficient K-562 cell line with cDNAs encoding caprine CD11a and caprine CD18 to determine the susceptibility of the transfectants to Lktinduced cytolysis. Flow cytometric analysis of the transfectants revealed surface expression of caprine LFA-1 and lysis by Lkt in a concentration-dependent manner whereas the parent cells were not. Moreover, K562 cells expressing caprine CD18 and human or bovine CD11a were also sensitive to Lkt whereas K-562 cells expressing caprine CD11a and human CD18 were not. Taken together, these results indicate that CD18 on caprine leukocytes serves as a receptor for Lkt. [less ▲]

Les pneumonies bactériennes constituent un problème majeur dans l'élevage et l'engraissement des bovins, avec des répercussions très élevées en termes de morbidité et de mortalité. Parmi les différentes causes biologiques recensées, Mannheimia haemolytica tient le haut de l’affiche puisqu’elle est connue comme agent pathogène compliquant principal, voire systématique. Une de ses particularités est qu’elle ne déclenche de pneumonie broncho-alvéolaire fibrino-hémorragique que chez les ruminants. Les lésions observées résultent d’une nécrose en masse des neutrophiles et macrophages et du relarguage de leurs différents constituants. Au niveau moléculaire, cette spécificité trouve son origine dans l’intimité de la liaison entre la leucotoxine, le facteur de virulence majeur de la bactérie, et la sous-unité CD18 des récepteurs de surface leucocytaires bêta2-intégrines. La revue décrit cette liaison et ses conséquences aux niveaux macroscopique et microscopique, avant de faire le point sur les dernières avancées de la recherche et d’ébaucher quelques perspectives thérapeutiques.

BACKGROUND: Functional deficiency of mannose-binding lectin (MBL) may contribute to the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. We hypothesized that specific MBL2 gene polymorphisms and circulating MBL protein levels are associated with clinically relevant outcomes in the Predicting Outcome using systemic Markers In Severe Exacerbations of COPD PROMISE-COPD cohort. METHODS: We followed 277 patients with stable COPD GOLD stage II-IV COPD over a median period of 733 days (IQR 641-767) taking survival as the primary outcome parameter. Patients were dichotomized as frequent (>/= 2 AECOPD/year) or infrequent exacerbators. Serum MBL levels and single nucleotide polymorphisms of the MBL2 gene were assessed at baseline. RESULTS: The MBL2-HYPD haplotype was significantly more prevalent in frequent exacerbators (OR: 3.33; 95% CI, 1.24-7.14, p = 0.01). The median serum MBL concentration was similar in frequent (607 ng/ml, [IQR; 363.0-896.0 ng/ml]) and infrequent exacerbators (615 ng/ml, [IQR; 371.0-942.0 ng/ml]). Serum MBL was not associated with lung function characteristics or bacterial colonization in sputum. However, high serum MBL at stable state was associated with better survival compared to low MBL (p = 0.046, log rank test). CONCLUSIONS: In COPD, the HYPD haplotype of MBL2 gene is associated with frequent exacerbations and high serum MBL is linked to increased survival. The PROMISE-COPD study was registered at www.controlled-trials.com under the identifier ISRCTN99586989. [less ▲]

Over the last decade, polymer micelles and nanoparticles attracted an increasing interest in pharmaceutical research because they can be used as efficient drug delivery systems. In this field, amphiphilic copolymers combining poly(ethylene oxide) and aliphatic polyester (such as poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) or polylactide (PLA)) are particularly of interest because (i) PEO has unique protein- repellent properties and thus provides a stealth behaviour to the drug carriers and (ii) aliphatic polyesters are biocompatible and biodegradable hydrophobic matrices well-suited for the incorporation of an hydrophobic drug. By end-capping the hydrophilic segment by a targeting moiety so that they may interact with membrane receptors, the biodistribution of polymeric micelles and nanoparticles stabilized with this copolymer can be modulated and can induce specific cellular uptake by receptor-mediated endocytosis. One class of interesting targeting agent is the saccharides, in particular the mannose, because of its specific interaction with mannose receptor, which are found on peripheral and bone marrow macrophages, dendritic cells and sinusoidal liver cells. In this study, the reductive amination reaction is use to attach this targeting agent. After optimisation of the reaction with amino fluorescein, a model amine, mannosylated copolymer of PEO and PCL has been prepared. The surface availability of the saccharide upon the micelles in aqueous phosphate buffer was then assessed by DLS through binding with the protein Concanavalin A (ConA), a known mannose receptor. The interactions between the Bcla lectin and the mannosylated micelles have then been studied by Isothermal Titration Calorimetry (ITC) and the thermodynamic parameters have been obtained. This polymer is particularly useful for the stabilization of PLGA nanoparticles with the goal to target M cells for oral vaccination. [less ▲]

A novel bioeliminable amphiphilic poly(ethylene oxide)-b-poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PEO-b-PCL) diblock copolymer end-capped by a mannose residue was synthesized by sequential controlled polymerization of ethylene oxide and epsilon-caprolactone, followed by the coupling of a reactive mannose derivative to the PEO chain end. The anionic polymerization of ethylene oxide was first initiated by potassium 2-dimethylaminoethanolate. The ring-opening polymerization of epsilon-caprolactone was then initiated by the omega-hydroxy end-group of PEO previously converted into an Al alkoxide. Finally, the saccharidic end-group was attached by quaternization of the tertiary amine (alpha-end-group of the PEO-b-PCL with a brominated mannose derivative. The copolymer was fully characterized in terms of chemical composition and purity by high-resolution NMR spectroscopy and size exclusion chromatography. Furthermore, measurements with a pendant drop tensiometer showed that both the mannosylated copolymer and the non-mannosylated counterpart significantly decreased the dichloromethane/water interfacial tension. Moreover, these amphiphilic copolymers formed monodisperse spherical micelles in water with an average diameter of similar to 11 nin as measured by dynamic light scattering and cryo-transmission electron microscopy. The availability of mannose as a specific recognition site at the surface of the micelles was proved by isothermal titration microcalorimetry (ITC), using the BclA lectin (from Burkholderia cenocepacia), which interacts selectively with a-D-mannopyranoside derivatives. The thermodynamic parameters of the lectin/mannose interaction were extracted from the ITC data. These colloidal systems have great potential for drug targeting and vaccine delivery systems.

Usage-based theories postulate that development of linguistic system depends on a gradual generalization mechanism during which use of lexicalized language forms are little-by-little replaced by use of abstract construction schemas. Several studies have shown limited morphosyntactic productivity in children with specific language impairment (SLI). In this longitudinal study, we have tested hypothesis according to which generalization would be hindered in children with SLI. [less ▲]
