Salt-free polyelectrolyte behaviour which is typically observed at low polymer concentrations for polyelectrolyte aqueous solutions and random ionomer non-aqueous solutions (in polar solvents) (i.e., negative angular dependence of the reciprocal scattering in static light scattering and an appearance of the fast mode in dynamic light scattering) has been observed for monotelechelic ionomer solutions in a polar solvent. This indicates that only single charge (per chain) is sufficient to produce intermolecular electrostatic interactions, which are responsible for such characteristic behaviour. However, the 'characteristic' behaviour, which is typically observed at higher concentrations for polyelectrolyte and random ionomer solutions (i.e., large positive apparent radius of gyration in static scattering and appearance of the slow mode in addition to the fast mode in dynamic scattering) has not been observed to date for monotelechelic ionomer solutions. The absence of high-concentration characteristics for the monotelechelic ionomer solutions gives additional insight as to the nature and structure of 'heterogeneities' in salt-free polyelectrolyte solutions, which is still controversial.

The early light-induced proteins (ELIPs) belong to the multigenic family of pigment-binding light-harvesting complexes. ELIPs accumulate transiently and are believed to play a protective role in plants exposed to high levels of light. Constitutive expression of the ELIP2 gene in Arabidopsis resulted in a marked reduction of the pigment content of the chloroplasts, both in mature leaves and during greening of etiolated seedlings. The chlorophyll loss was associated with a decrease in the number of photosystems in the thylakoid membranes, but the photosystems present were fully assembled and functional. A detailed analysis of the chlorophyll-synthesizing pathway indicated that ELIP2 accumulation downregulated the level and activity of two important regulatory steps: 5-aminolevulinate synthesis and Mg-protoporphyrin IX (Mg-Proto IX) chelatase activity. The contents of glutamyl tRNA reductase and Mg chelatase subunits CHLH and CHLI were lowered in response to ELIP2 accumulation. In contrast, ferrochelatase activity was not affected and the inhibition of Heme synthesis was null or very moderate. As a result of reduced metabolic flow from 5-aminolevulinic acid, the steady state levels of various chlorophyll precursors (from protoporphyrin IX to protochlorophyllide) were strongly reduced in the ELIP2 overexpressors. Taken together, our results indicate that the physiological function of ELIPs could be related to the regulation of chlorophyll concentration in thylakoids. This seems to occur through an inhibition of the entire chlorophyll biosynthesis pathway from the initial precursor of tetrapyrroles, 5-aminolevulinic acid. We suggest that ELIPs work as chlorophyll sensors that modulate chlorophyll synthesis to prevent accumulation of free chlorophyll, and hence prevent photooxidative stress. [less ▲]

Despite its major importance in international trade, the city of Butembo in the North Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of Congo is deprived of such basic urban infrastructure as electricity. Private and public actors have attempted to bring power to the city, but their efforts have remained fruitless. Analysis of these failed projects to electrify the city offers a glimpse of local power relations. Why, rather than cooperating, do various local power holders counteract each other? Will gaining credit for bringing electric power to the city in turn yield political power over its future? With a special focus on a hydroelectric dam that was built but never functioned, this article sheds light on the way in which the citizens of Butembo relate to different bodies of authority. I argue that the hydroelectric dam gradually became a tool in a larger political strategy [less ▲]

We extend the recently developed formalism to extract light-front quark charge densities from nucleon form factor data to the deformations of these quark charge densities when applying an external electric field. We show that the resulting induced polarizations can be extracted from proton generalized polarizabilities. The available data for the generalized electric polarizability of the proton yield a pronounced structure in its induced polarization at large transverse distances, which will be pinned down by forthcoming high precision virtual Compton scattering experiments.

The formation of a C-18F bond requires hard conditions which is problematic for the biomolecule radiolabelling. The alternative method which has been developed since a few decades consists in incorporating the 18F on a prosthetic group and coupling it to the biomolecule. The copper (I)-catalysed 1,2,3-triazole formation involving azides and terminal alkynes is a powerful and rapid method of coupling but present the inconvenient of the employment of cytotoxic reagents. The photoclick conjugation is a promising alternative with no need of catalyst[1]. Recently, a light-induced hetero-Diels Alder cycloaddition involving a 3-(hydroxymethyl)-2-naphthol derivative and an electron-rich olefin has been developed[2]. This reaction seems well adapted for the fast conjugation of radionuclides to biomolecules. Herein we report the synthesis of a [18F]fluoronaphtoquinone derivative as prosthetic group and its reaction with vinyl ethers. [less ▲]

Light-induced quenching of the low temperature fluorescence emission from photosystem II (PS II) at 695 nm (F695) has been observed in chloroplasts and whole leaves of spinach. Photosystem I (PS I) fluorescence emission at 735 nm (F735) is quenched to a lesser degree but this quenching is thought to originate from PS II and is manifest in a reduced amount of excitation energy available for spillover to PS I. Differential quenching of these two fluorescence emissions leads to an increase in the F735/F685 ratio on exposure to light at 77 K. Rewarming the sample from -196°C discharges the thermoluminescence Z-band and much of the original unquenched fluorescence is recovered. The relationship between the thermoluminescence Z-band and the quenching of the low temperature fluorescence emission (F695) is discussed with respect to the formation of reduced pheophytin in the PS II reaction center at 77 K.

In recent years the increasing interest for eco-sustainable building materials and the rising issue of plastic waste disposal are leading to the engineering of new composite construction materials incorporating post consumer recycled plastics, able at the same time to meet new standard requirements, in terms of energy efficiency, and to reduce the consumption of natural resources. In the context of these issues, we have performed investigations on the effects of the addition of foamed artificial aggregates deriving from recycled plastic materials to a cementitious mortar. For this purpose, several mortar samples containing natural sand and different amounts (10, 25 and 50 % by volume) of foamed recycled plastic wastes were produced. The foaming of the recycled plastic waste was performed in laboratory by a foam extrusion process using a blowing agent (2 wt.%). An artificial aggregates particle size distribution similar to standard sand was used. Rheological and physical properties of lightweight mortar were studied. The improved surface roughness of foamed plastic aggregates ensures a more continuous interface and the presence of surface pores provides interlocking effect with cement paste. Replacement of natural sand by artificial aggregates produces a lightweight mortar but reduces mechanical properties. [less ▲]

This paper proposes a network proximity service based on the neighborhood models used in recommender systems. Unlike previous approaches, our service infers network proximity without trying to recover the latency between network nodes. By asking each node to probe a number of landmark nodes which can be servers at Google, Yahoo and Facebook, etc., a simple proximity measure is computed and allows the direct ranking and rating of network nodes by their proximity to a target node. The service is thus lightweight and can be easily deployed in e.g. P2P and CDN applications. Simulations on existing datasets and experiments with a deployment over PlanetLab showed that our service achieves an accurate proximity inference that is comparable to state-of-the-art latency prediction approaches, while being much simpler.
