Ultrafast UV excitation can prepare a nonstationary coherent superposition of molecular electronic states. The purely electronic dynamics before the onset of nuclear motion can be probed by a sudden XUV ionization of the electronic wave packet. Dynamical computations at the many-electron level on the LiH and 1-azabicyclo[3.3.3]undecane (C10H19N) molecules showthat molecular frame photoelectron angular distributions reflect the spatial localization and undulations of the electronic coherent superposition accessed by the initial ultrafast UV excitation. The sudden ionization is sensitive to interference effects. [less ▲]

A 52-year-old White man presented with a dozen small, well-restricted, punctiform, asymptomatic, blue-gray macules on the left shoulder. A few months earlier, he had been treated with oral acyclovir for herpes zoster (HZ) affecting the left C7–C8 dermatomes. All the blue macules appeared over a short period of time and then remained stable. The patient had not experienced any previous trauma or had tattooing in this anatomical region. The clinical diagnosis suggested blue nevi. Dermatoscopy revealed small, well-limited, dark-blue, compact, homogeneous areas evoking dermal blue nevi. An excisional biopsy was performed and the histological examination confirmed a blue nevus. As far as we are aware of, this is the first report of eruptive blue nevi following HZ, and it should be included in the differential diagnosis of zosteriform dermatoses responding to an isotopic pathway. In addition, a brief review concerning eruptive nevi is presented. [less ▲]

Strain localisation in soils and rocks has been studied extensively for the last 20 years. A part of these studies have been devoted to the response of specimens submitted to tests in undrained situation. It was shown that shear banding can take place in both contractive and dilative specimens, with some special features due to the coupling between the granular skeleton and the pore fluid. In the paper, the relevance of the bifurcation criterion in shear band mode in the case of hydromechanical coupling is assessed by numerical study of the response of the constitutive model CLoE –the Hypoplastic model developed in L3S-Grenoble– in two kinds of numerical integration: local, i.e. at the material point level and global, i.e. in boundary value problems analyzed by finite elements.

In this work, we propose a novel and efficient solution for the generalized multipole technique (GMT): the localized iterative generalized multipole technique (LIGMT). In LIGMT, an analytic constraint is imposed on the power radiated by the set of multipole sources sharing the same origin, rendering it minimum over a given angular sector. In this way, the power radiated by each set of multipoles is confined to a different section of the scatterer surface. It follows that each set of multipole coefficients can be solved step by step via an iterative process, which circumvents the need to solve the large and full matrix equation. This implies a significant reduction of the computational and storage cost, enhancing the scope of application of the GMT method to larger problems. [less ▲]

Testosterone, through its activation of androgen and estrogen receptors, has been shown to play a critical role in brain development and physiology. Recent studies have shown that the activity of these receptors can be modulated by the interaction with several proteins and, in particular, that coactivators are required to enhance their transcriptional activity. The steroid receptor coactivator-1, SRC-1 is the best-characterized coactivator and we review here the current knowledge on the distribution, regulation of expression and function of this protein in the brain, focusing mostly on our work in Japanese quail. As expected for a ubiquitous coactivator, SRC-1 is present throughout the brain in both mammalian and avian species but is found in particularly high concentrations in testosterone-sensitive areas such as the preoptic area in rat and Japanese quail and in the song control nuclei in songbirds. Further analysis demonstrates that the expression of SRC-1 is not constitutive but regulated in specific brain areas by the sex, acute stress and testosterone treatment. In addition, the protein concentration appears to fluctuate through the day in some brain regions. These modulations of SRC-1 expression by endogenous (sex) and exogenous (stress) factors could potentially exacerbate at specific times the competition or squelching between different nuclear receptors and therefore decrease the biological response induced by one or another hormonal system. Although the existence of such a phenomenon has not yet been demonstrated in a functionally intact biological system, the effects of SRC-1 antisense treatments clearly strengthen this hypothesis. Indeed, the decrease of SRC-1 expression in the hypothalamus induced by antisense oligonucleotide injections clearly inhibited both estrogen-dependent male sexual behavior and androgen-dependent pre- and post-copulatory displays (strut) in Japanese quail, therefore demonstrating a role of the coactivator in the transcriptional activation induced by both estrogen and androgen receptors. Interestingly, the inhibitory effect on sexual behavior of SRC-1 knock down was not systematically associated with modifications of several histological (definition of median preoptic nucleus [POM] using Nissl staining), immunohistochemical (aromatase and vasotocin cells and fibers in the POM) and biochemical (aromatase enzymatic activity) markers of testosterone action in the brain. This dissociation of the effects of SRC-1 on behavior on the one hand and on aromatase and POM neurochemistry on another hand suggests that other system(s) involved in the activation of male sexual behavior are likely more sensitive to a decrease of SRC-1 expression. In future research, it will be essential to determine the other cofactors involved in specific physiological responses and to define whether these coactivators act synergistically, in parallel or independently in the modulation of the activity of one or several nuclear receptors linked to a particular physiological event. In several biological models, the observed changes in concentration of the circulating hormone and /or its receptors are apparently not sufficient to explain the physiological and behavioral responses observed after testosterone treatment. The discovery of steroid receptor coactivators opens new perspectives in the study of the molecular basis of steroid action at the level of the organism and a complete understanding of the mechanisms of steroid action will not be achieved without a detailed characterization of nuclear receptor cofactors.

AIMS : This randomized controlled trial aimed to evaluate the benefits and clinical outcomes of piezocision, which is a minimally invasive approach to corticotomy that is used in orthodontic treatments. MATERIALS AND METHODS : Twenty-four adult patients presenting with mild overcrowdings were randomly allocated to either a control group that was treated with conventional orthodontics or a test group that received piezo-assisted orthodontics. The piezocisions were performed 1 wk week after the placement of the orthodontic appliances. Neither grafting material nor sutures were used. All patients were followed every 2 wk, and archwires were changed only when they were no longer active. The periods required for the completion of the overall orthodontic treatments were calculated, and the periodontal parameters were evaluated at baseline and at the end of the orthodontic treatment. Patient-centered outcomes were assessed with a visual analog scale; analgesic use following the procedures was also recorded. RESULTS : The patient characteristics were similar between the 2 groups. The overall treatment time was significantly reduced by 43% in the piezocision group as compared with the control group. In both groups, periodontal parameters (i.e., recession depth, pocket depth, plaque index, and papilla bleeding index) remained unchanged between the baseline and treatment completion time points. No increase in root resorption was observed in either group. Scars were observed in 50% of the patients in the piezocision group. Analgesic consumption was similar following orthodontic appliance placement and piezocision surgery. Patient satisfaction was significantly better in the piezocision group than in the control group. CONCLUSION : In these conditions, the piezocision technique seemed to be effective in accelerating orthodontic tooth movement. No gingival recessions were observed. The risk of residual scars might limit the indications for piezocision in patients with a high smile line (ClinicalTrials.gov NCT02590835) [less ▲]

Recently, machine learning models have been applied to neuroimaging data, allowing to make predictions about a variable of interest based on the pattern of activation or anatomy over a set of voxels. These pattern recognition based methods present undeniable assets over classical (univariate) techniques, by providing predictions for unseen data, as well as the weights of each voxel in the model. However, the obtained weight map cannot be thresholded to perform regionally specific inference, leading to a difficult localization of the variable of interest. In this work, we provide local averages of the weights according to regions defined by anatomical or functional atlases (e.g. Brodmann atlas). These averages can then be ranked, thereby providing a sorted list of regions that can be (to a certain extent) compared with univariate results. Furthermore, we defined a “ranking distance”, allowing for the quantitative comparison between localized patterns. These concepts are illustrated with two datasets. [less ▲]

Implementing high-level radioactive wastes programs on a territory remain a sensitive step for nuclear waste management organizations. At this stage, the preferred solution of radioactive wastes programs (geological disposal) and their technological developments become highly visible and this is why the new instruments and strategies such as participatory technology development (PDT) have been adopted to tackle the territorial development of geological disposal technology. Considering the coproduction between territory and program (Jasanoff 2004), this presentation focuses on two siting processes of radioactive wastes programs, in France and in Canada to analyze the influence of in(sensible) local participatory technology development strategy and the influence of invited critics (Wynne 2007) on the industrial project. Our results show that frameworks of the participatory technology development have been designed very differently (with or without publics). Consequently, two undesirable, mostly non-intended side effects of information local committees (non) integration have appeared. In France, a closed PDT transformed invited critics as non-invited one. In Canada, a weak engagement of publics has occurred with an opened PDT. In both case, new socio-technical adjustments have occurred in those programs. [less ▲]

Immunoelectron microscopy and in situ hybridization have been used to investigate the precise location of transcribed and non-transcribed rDNA spacer sequences. Whereas a 5'-external transcribed spacer sequence is predominantly visualized in the fibrillar centers of nucleoli, a non-transcribed spacer sequence is preferentially detected in the interstices, in close contact with the fibrillar centers and which interrupt the surrounding dense fibrillar component. Occasionally these two spacers are also observed in clumps of dense nucleolus-associated chromatin. These observations provide insights into the organization of ribosomal repeats within the nucleolus. [less ▲]

Estimating multivariate location and scatter with both affine equivariance and positive breakdown has always been difficult. A well-known estimator which satisfies both properties is the Minimum Volume Ellipsoid Estimator (MVE). Computing the exact MVE is often not feasible, so one usually resorts to an approximate algorithm. In the regression setup, algorithms for positive-breakdown estimators like Least Median of Squares typically recompute the intercept at each step, to improve the result. This approach is called intercept adjustment. In this paper we show that a similar technique, called location adjustment, can be applied to the MVE. For this purpose we use the Minimum Volume Ball (MVB), in order to lower the MVE objective function. An exact algorithm for calculating the MVB is presented. As an alternative to MVB location adjustment we propose L-1 location adjustment, which does not necessarily lower the MVE objective function but yields more efficient estimates for the location part. Simulations compare the two types of location adjustment. We also obtain the maxbias curves of both L-1 and the MVB in the multivariate setting, revealing the superiority of L-1. [less ▲]

The accessibility and the location of new and existing urban projects are key factors for the sustainability of our built environments. Previous scientific research have shown that both the location of neighborhoods (that is to say their proximity to work places, schools facilities, services etc.) as well as their accessibility (proximity of infrastructures, bus services, etc.) have a huge impact on modal share (especially the ability to use active commuting for daily travel), travelled distances and thus on emissions of greenhouse gas and health of inhabitants. In a view of sustainability, the location of new and planned urban projects should be carefully assessed in order to favor the development of local communities encouraging the use of public transportation and active commuting (foot, bicycle). Local authorities should also be able to assess the potentialities of different Brownfield and Greenfields on their territories and define where to authorize the development of new urban projects, in order to inscribe them in a concrete vision of sustainability. In the first part of the chapter, we propose a synthetic review of the scientific literature dealing with the relationships between location, accessibility and commuting. Then, we analyze how location and accessibility are taken into account in several existing neighborhood sustainability assessment tools. Based on the ascertainments that sustainable mobility, location and accessibility criteria are given less importance than criteria related to building energy performance or green spaces and, that existing sustainability assessment tools are mainly developed for experts, we propose two frameworks to assess the location and the accessibility of buildings and neighborhoods. These two frameworks are especially designed for a non-expert audience (citizens, local authorities, developers, etc.), within the Walloon (Belgian) context. To conclude the chapter, the reproducibility of our work is discussed and our main findings are summarized. [less ▲]

The coding region of the TK gene is 1335 nucleotides long and corresponds to a polypeptide of 445 amino acids. Comparison of TK amino acid sequences of BHV-4 and 16 herpesvirus TKs reveals a greater homology to those of the gammaherpesviruses EBV and specially HVS, than to those of alphaherpesviruses. The open reading frames detected in the vicinity of TK gene were homologous to the corresponding ones in other herpesviruses. [less ▲]
