Face aux discours techno-enthousiastes sur les innovations des récits numériques, des études de l’hyperfiction cherchent à définir les nouveautés réelles apportées par le média informatique. Cet article s’inscrit dans ce courant en comparant les récits interactifs numériques aux non-numériques, tels que les jeux de rôle, le théâtre expérimental ou les livres dont vous êtes le héros. Cette comparaison se fait en deux temps : d’abord le rapprochement par les caractéristiques narratives, puis la distinction par les spécificités des supports. Elle nuance le caractère nouveau de l’arborescence, de l’émergence, de l’hybridation de l’avatar et de spatialité ; et cherche à déterminer des caractéristiques propres au numérique. [less ▲]

The lead/zinc mining industry of Kabwe (Central Province of Zambia), in operation from 1906 to 1994, generated metalliferous slag heaps covering an area of over 75 ha. The slag heaps are responsible for aerosol emissions with a high heavy metal content over the mine townships of Kasanda and Chowa, resulting in health risks for the local population. In this phytogeochemical investigation, soil samples showed very high lead, zinc and copper concentrations in topsoil. Plant surveys identified 39 taxa, including several tropical and metalloresistant weeds. We concluded that phytostabilization was the only suitable management method for the area. Plant species recommended for phytostabilization are Indigofera spicata, Melinis repens, Cynodon dactylon, Aristida adscencionis and Pennisetum setaceum. [less ▲]

Our ability to recognise the usual horizontal orientation Of Our own face (mirror orientation) as compared with another very familiar face (normal orientation) was examined in experiment 1. Participants did not use the same kind of information in determining the orientation of their own face as in determining the orientation of the other familiar face. The proportion of participants who reported having based their judgment on the location of an asymmetric feature (eg a mole) was higher when determining the orientation of their own face than when determining that of the other familiar face. In experiment 2, participants were presented with pairs of manipulated images of their own face and of another familiar face showing conflicting asymmetric features and configural information. Each pair consisted of one picture showing asymmetric features of a given face in a mirror-reversed position, while the facial configuration was left unchanged; and one picture in which the location of the asymmetric features was left unchanged, while the facial configuration was mirror-reversed. As expected from the hypothesis that asymmetric local features are more frequently used for the judgment of one's own face, participants chose the picture showing mirror-reversed asymmetric features when determining the usual orientation of their own face significantly more often than they chose the picture showing normally oriented asymmetric features when determining the orientation of the other face. These results are explained in terms of competing forward and mirror-reversed representations of one's own face. [less ▲]

Illite Kubler index (KI) and oxygen isotope (brachiopods and micrites) investigations have been performed on more than 300 Frasnian limestones sampled in one borehole and numerous outcrops in the Dinant Synclinorium (Belgium, northern France) of the northern Variscan front. The illite Kubler index and delta(18)O data of a 3-km-thick, tectonically repeated Frasnian series from the Focant borehole are compared with their surrounding surface correspondents and document in-situ reheating induced by Variscan tectonic loading, which post-dated sedimentary burial alteration. The boundary between these two thermal processes (sedimentary burial and tectonic loading) on the Focant profile corresponds to an important location where the heat induced by the tectonic loading was equivalent to that Frasnian strata suffered during maximum sedimentary burial. Mainly based on this knowledge and on a former conodont colour alteration index study, the thickness of the eroded thrust sheet in the Focant area is estimated to be around 3,000 m. Oxygen isotopic exchange in these Frasnian closed carbonate systems, occurring under highest-grade diagenesis and anchimetamorphism, records two events. Brachiopods present a quite different and more homogeneous pattern, due to their higher resistance to heat alteration. These thermal events caused both delta(18)O records to become increasingly lighter than the presumed original seawater signature. The comparison between KI and delta(18)O profiles indicates that illite KI analysis is more appropriate than delta(18)O in highlighting the temperature variations in the burial metamorphism at the periphery of orogenic belts.

Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is responsible for a primary infection (varicella) followed by a latency, eventually resulting in herpes zoster (shingles). The replication cycle of VZV is normally interrupted after varicella. Consequently, VZV remains dormant in the organism. Reactivation occurs after viraemia, and the development of tissue alterations (skin and viscera) depends on the immunological status of the patient. Diagnosis of herpes zoster relies on clinical recognition and cytological and histological evaluations combined with immunohistochemistry and molecular biology techniques. Treatment of herpes zoster primarily relies upon antiviral drugs and incidentally on immunomodulating agents, specific immunoglobulins, antimicrobial agents, antiviral enzymes and corticosteroids. Drugs with a clinically relevant activity against varicella zoster virus infections include aciclovir, adenosine monophosphate, bromodeoxyuridine, desciclovir, fiacitabine, idoxuridine, interferon-alpha and vidarabine. Among them, aciclovir appears to be a first-line agent. Its efficacy has been well established by many clinical studies. Promising drugs for the future include famciclovir, penciclovir, valaciclovir and other molecules currently under investigation. Recent and promising improvements in antiviral drug development may increase patient compliance, cost-benefit ratios and therapeutic efficacy. [less ▲]

Single ion bombardment of biological cells using an ion microprobe is a promising technique. However, for microprobe investigations of biological processes at a cellular level the precise recognition of a single cell and particularly of its nucleus is required. Moreover, cells must be examined in their natural state and environment (i.e. without previously being killed, preferentially not fixed nor stained) and, also, the use of ultraviolet light for cells observation should be avoided. Additionally, in order to obtain statistically significant results of irradiation, the possibility of fast automatic recognition of thousands of objects must be provided. Because computer recognition strongly depends on the quality of an image, the optical imaging system is of crucial importance. For this purpose one of the best solutions could be the Quantitative Phase microscopy (QPm) technique. QPm is the recent digital technique of phase contrast microscopy, providing quantitative phase and intensity data obtained from a series of defocused images. The following phase contrast modalities may be generated digitally from the computed QPm phase data with a greater degree of flexibility: Pure phase images (intensity-free), standard phase contrast (e.g. Zernike phase contrast), differential interference contrast (DIC), Hoffman modulation contrast, and simulated darkfield.

Binding of three macrocyclic bisintercalators to mismatch-containing duplexes was analyzed by thermal denaturation experiments, electrospray mass spectrometry studies (ESI-MS) and fluorescent intercalator displacement (FID) titrations. The macrocyclic bisintercalators bind to duplexes containing mismatched thymine bases with high selectivity over the fully matched one and affinity in the submicromolar range (Kd). The FID results also demonstrate that the macrocyclic naphthalene derivative BisNP preferentially binds to pyrimidine-pyrimidine mismatches compared to all other possible base mismatches. This ligand also efficiently competes with a DNA enzyme (M.TaqI) for binding to a duplex with a TT-mismatch [less ▲]

Neuropeptide signals and specific neuropeptide receptors have been described in the thymus supporting the concept of a close dialogue between the neuroendocrine and the immune systems at the level of early T-cell differentiation. In this paper, we review recent data about neurohypophysial (NHP)-related peptides detected in the thymus from different species. We suggest that we are dealing in fact with other member(s) of the NHP hormone family, which seems to exert its activity locally through a novel model of cell-to-cell signaling, that of cryptocrine communication. This model involves exchange of signals between thymic epithelial cells and developing thymocytes. The NHP-related peptides have been shown to trigger thymocyte proliferation and could induce immune tolerance of this highly conserved neuroendocrine family. [less ▲]

Recognition of product quality and conformity supposes the existence of two elements: a users’ requirements document and a certification system for product conformity with this document. The document is generally drawn up by a group representing all the interested parties (public and private users, producers, certification or monitoring bodies, testing laboratories, experts …). Depending on circumstances, the document appears as the norm approved in a certain country or as a normative document (approval guide, technical prescriptions,…) recognised by the various interested parties. The certification body is a public or private body which has the competence, independence and impartiality to certify that a duly identified product conforms to a normative document. The certification body works within a certification system that also includes inspection bodies and testing laboratories. In certain cases, the certification body is approved by a competent national authority. In Belgium, the Ministry of Communication and Infrastructures approves certification or inspection bodies and also testing laboratories for building activities. [less ▲]

Varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is a human alpha herpesvirus that establishes latency in sensory ganglia. Latency is characterized by the abundant expression of the immediate early protein 63 (IE63), whereas other viral proteins have not yet been detected during the quiescent phase of VZV infection. The IE63 protein is a component of the virion and is expressed very early in the infectious cycle. The IE63 protein is also expressed in skin during episodes of varicella and herpes zoster. We have evaluated the cell-mediated immune response against IE63 in naturally immune adults with a history of chickenpox, by T lymphoproliferation and cytotoxicity assays. Among donors who had T cell proliferation to unfractionated VZV Ags from infected cell extract, 59% had T cell recognition of purified IE63. The CTL response to IE63 was equivalent to CTL recognition of IE62, the major tegument component of VZV whose immunogenicity has been previously described. IgG Abs against IE63 were detected in serum from healthy immune adults. These results indicate that IE63 is an important target of immunity to VZV. T cell recognition of IE63 is likely to be involved in controlling VZV reactivation from latency. [less ▲]

Using molecular sequence data, biologists can generate hypotheses of protistan phylogeny and divergence times. Fossils, however, provide our only direct constraints on the timing and environmental context of early eukaryotic diversification. For this reason, recognition of eukaryotic fossils in Proterozoic rocks is key to the integration of geological and comparative biological perspectives on protistan evolution. Microfossils preserved in shales of the ca. 1500 Ma Roper Group, northern Australia, display characters that ally them to the Eucarya, but, at present, attribution to any particular protistan clade is uncertain. Continuing research on wall ultrastructure and microchemistry promises new insights into the nature and systematic relationships of early eukaryotic fossils. [less ▲]

Cerebral activity associated with recollection and familiarity in 28 patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and 17 healthy controls was directly measured in an event-related fMRI experiment during performance of a recognition memory task with the process dissociation procedure. Brain regions associated to recollection were evidenced by contrasting activations for inclusion and exclusion conditions whereas brain regions related to familiarity were explored with the mean effect of the two conditions (at P < .05 corrected). Twelve patients had null recollection estimates (AD-), whereas 16 patients did experience some recollection although significantly less than controls (AD+). In AD+ and controls, recollection activated the posterior cingulate cortex (PCC). In contrast, familiarity estimates were equivalent in the 3 groups and were associated with brain activations around the intraparietal sulcus (IPS). Thus, in AD, impaired recollection is related to damage of the PCC whereas preserved familiarity is supported by the IPS. [less ▲]
