Plant metabolism is highly coordinated with development. However, an understanding of the whole picture of metabolism and its interactions with plant development is scarce. In this work, we show that the deficiency in the plastidial glycolytic glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPCp) leads to male sterility in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana). Pollen from homozygous gapcp double mutant plants (gapcp1gapcp2) displayed shrunken and collapsed forms and were unable to germinate when cultured in vitro. The pollen alterations observed in gapcp1gapcp2 were attributed to a disorganized tapetum layer. Accordingly, the expression of several of the genes involved in tapetum development was down-regulated in gapcp1gapcp2. The fertility of gapcp1gapcp2 was rescued by transforming this mutant with a construct carrying the GAPCp1 cDNA under the control of its native promoter (pGAPCp1::GAPCp1c). However, the GAPCp1 or GAPCp2 cDNA under the control of the 35S promoter (p35S::GAPCp), which is poorly expressed in the tapetum, did not complement the mutant fertility. Mutant GAPCp isoforms deficient in the catalytic activity of the enzyme were unable to complement the sterile phenotype of gapcp1gapcp2, thus confirming that both the expression and catalytic activity of GAPCp in anthers are necessary for mature pollen development. A metabolomic study in flower buds indicated that the most important difference between the sterile (gapcp1gapcp2, gapcp1gapcp2-p35S::GAPCp) and the fertile (wild-type plants, gapcp1gapcp2-pGAPCp1::GAPCp1c) lines was the increase in the signaling molecule trehalose. This work corroborates the importance of plastidial glycolysis in plant metabolism and provides evidence for the crucial role of GAPCps in pollen development. It additionally brings new insights into the complex interactions between metabolism and development. © 2010 American Society of Plant Biologists. [less ▲]

Le projet RAP est mis en œuvre selon un processus multi-acteurs (PMA). La PMA constitue un cadre de concertation de plusieurs acteurs : producteurs, transformateurs, commerçants, pisciculteurs, éleveurs, structures d’appui, Partenaires Techniques et financiers, etc. Les intérêts de ces acteurs sont très souvent divergents. Mais, ces acteurs sont appelés à apprendre, agir, et innover ensemble dans une approche systémique pour une utilisation optimale et une gestion durable des ressources naturelles de ces bas-fonds. Après deux années de mise en œuvre de cette approche, nous évaluions le niveau d’appropriation par les acteurs. Les conditions de mobilisation des ressources humaines et financières pour la concrétisation de cette innovation ont été évaluées de même que les actions qui ont été mises en œuvre dans le processus d’ancrage de ce partenariat. Les acquis, les faiblesses et les contraintes à l’appropriation ont fait l’objet d’une analyse critique. En somme, les PMA sont en construction et il existe de réelles motivations autour de cette approche. [less ▲]

La réforme des études de médecine introduite en 2012 en Communauté Française (Belgique) a fortement modifié les programmes de cours, entre autres celui de physique, pour lequel certaines notions sont désormais considérées comme prérequises. Conscientes que celles-ci ne sont pas toujours acquises par les étudiants, les équipes pédagogiques de l'ULg ont élaboré des systèmes de remédiation. Un espace en ligne a notamment été développé, parallèlement au cours présentiel, afin de permettre aux enseignants et aux étudiants d'évaluer les difficultés et lacunes de ces derniers et d’y remédier. Cet outil est conçu pour offrir une aide spécifique adaptée à chacun malgré le nombre important d’étudiants inscrits (800 en 2013). Ils peuvent y travailler, de manière progressive et autonome, les aspects théoriques (notes et tests formatifs) et pratiques (exercices, problèmes décomposés ou non). Des tests diagnostiques en début et fin de parcours permettent aux apprenants d’apprécier leur évolution. De plus, la plate-forme centralise différents outils interactifs (forums, calendrier, annonces, …) accompagnant l’étudiant dans l’organisation de son parcours. Les premières analyses de traces indiquent une corrélation entre travail en ligne et réussite. Une adaptation progressive de l’outil sera basée sur l’analyse des résultats et du ressenti de étudiants. [less ▲]

Photochemically induced cerebral infarction has been considered a clinically relevant model for ischemic stroke. We evaluated various transgenic mice to study the role of platelet adhesion molecules in this model. Infarction to the sensorimotoric cortex was induced by erythrosin B and laser light. Infarct volumes were calculated from triphenyltetrazolium chloride stained brain slices. Thrombus formation and vessel leakage were observed in vivo by multiphoton microscopy. Mice mutant in VWF, GPIbalpha, beta3 integrin, and P-selectin did not show any significant differences in infarct volume compared to wild type (WT). This is in contrast to the intraluminal middle cerebral artery occlusion model in which alphaIIbbeta3 integrin, GPIbalpha, and P-selectin are known to modulate infarct size. Multiphoton microscopy showed that small, non-occlusive embolizing platelet thrombi formed in the photochemically injured brains. Massive vessel leakage was observed within 25 min of laser injury. Interestingly, we observed a significant increase in infarct size with aging, accordant with heightened fragility of the blood brain barrier (BBB) in older mice. This model of photochemically induced stroke is closer to a BBB injury model than a thrombotic stroke model in which platelets and their adhesion molecules are crucial. This model will be useful to study mechanisms regulating BBB permeability. [less ▲]

Introduction. – Some tendinopathies become chronic in spite of an appropriate treatment. Further treatment with an injection of platelet rich plasma (PRP) can avoid surgical intervention. Ephemesis. – We have made a review of literature concerning the PRP. Its efficacy is due to growth factors contained in platelets which are from 300 to 500 times more concentrated after preparation than in blood. The use of PRP has good results in different medical disciplines and can heal tendons in vitro studies. However, only one clinical study reports a good efficacy of PRP in the treatment of epicondylitis. Conclusion. – PRP is an interesting technique to treat chronic tendinopathies but there are not enough studies to determine its real efficacy. [less ▲]

Introduction: The tendon is a tissue which does not heal easily. Recently, several studies have demonstrated the positive effects of platelets on the healing process of tendons. A local injection of platelet–rich plasma (PRP), which releases in situ many growth factors, has the potentiality to enhance the tendon healing process. The aim of our experiment was to ascertain by an original mechanical measure whether the use of PRP was of interest for accelerating the healing process of rats’ Achilles tendons after surgical induced lesion. Methods: A 5mm defect was surgically induced in 90 rats’ Achilles tendon. Rats were divided into 2 groups of 45: (A) control (no treatment) and (B) PRP treatment. Rats of group B received a PRP injection in situ after the surgery. Afterwards, rats of both groups were placed in their cages without immobilization. After 5, 15 and 30 days, 10 traumatized Achilles tendons of each group were dissected and removed. Immediately after sampling, tendons were submitted to a biomechanical tensile test up to rupture, using a “Cryo-jaw”. After that, transcriptomic analyses were made on the tendon samples, to study the expression of type III collagen, matrix metalloproteases and tenomodulin. A hydroxyproline dosage was done to quantify the collagen in the tendon during its healing process. Tendons of the 15 remaining rats of each group were subjected to a histological study, respectively at day 5, 15 and 30 (5 rats for each time). Results: We demonstrated that the force necessary to induce tendon rupture during biomechanical tensile test study was greater for tendons which had been submitted to an injection of PRP compared to the control group: +19% (day 5), +30% (day 15) and +43% (day 30). Histological study showed that PRP could enhance cells proliferation, angiogenesis and collagen organisation. Our biochemical analyses did not explain beneficial effects of PRP. Indeed, there was no significant difference neither between the expression of different studied genes, nor in the quantity of hydroxyproline between both groups. Conclusion: This experimentation has shown that a PRP injection could accelerate the tendons healing process and improve its quality. [less ▲]

Introduction Some tendinopathies (epicondylitis, jumper’s knee or Achilles tendinopathy) are frequently considered as rebel to “classic” treatments such as rest, orthotics, NSAIs, electrotherapy, physiotherapy, corticosteroid infiltrations, extracorporeal shock waves… Recently, several studies, essentially in vitro, demonstrated the positive effects of platelets on the healing process of different tissues: bones, muscles and tendons. Objectives The aim of our experiment was to ascertain whether the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was of interest for accelerating the healing process of Achilles tendon after surgical induced lesion. Methods A 5mm defect was surgically induced in rat Achilles tendon after resection of plantaris tendon. Rats were divided into 2 groups: A: control (no injection) and B: PRP injection. Rats of group B received a PRP injection in situ after the surgery. Afterwards, rats of both groups were placed in their cage without immobilization. After 5, 15 and 30 days, rats were euthanized. The traumatized Achilles tendon of each rat was removed and dissected during this healing process. Immediately after sampling, tendons were submitted to a biomechanical tensile test up to rupture, using a “Cryo-jaw”. Results We demonstrated that the force necessary to induce tendon rupture during biomechanical tensile test study was more important for tendons which had been submitted to an injection of PRP. These results were noticed from day 5 onwards. Discussion – Conclusion This experimentation has shown that PRP injections could accelerate tendons healing process and increase the force needed to break tendons in their healing process. This “accelerating” process can be observed as early as day 5. Acknowledgement This experimentation was partially financed by “Standard de Liège 2007” and “Lejeune-Lechien 2008” grants. [less ▲]
