Viola calaminaria (Gingins) Lej. is a rare and threatened species, endemic to metalliferous soils in E Belgium, S Netherlands and W Germany. In order to provide basic information for a conservation strategy, we performed an ecogeographic survey of almost all V. calaminaria populations currently existing in Belgium. Twenty-four populations were found, distributed in three geographic groups all in the Province of Liège. The area covered by V. calaminaria ranged from < 1 m2 to 3.2 ha. The largest populations were found in sites contaminated by atmospheric deposits from metal smelters. Soils were extremely variable in heavy metal and nutrient concentrations, but concentrations of Zn, Pb and Cd were consistently higher than reference values for normal soils. V. calaminaria was most often found in association with other metallophyte and pseudometallophyte taxa typical of metalliferous sites. Plant communities identified by TWINSPAN analysis generally fitted the heavy metal associations previously described but two unusual heavy metal plant communities were identified. Based on a canonical correspondence analysis, pH was the only factor that was clearly correlated with the floristic composition of plant communities associated to V. calaminaria. This study confirmed the ecological endemic status of V. calaminaria and the importance of the conservation of metalliferous sites. [less ▲]

Matrix metalloproteinase 19 (MMP-19) is a member of the MMP family of endopeptidases that, in contrast to most MMPs, is widely expressed in human tissues under normal quiescent conditions. MMP-19 has been found to be associated with ovulation and angiogenic processes and is deregulated in diverse pathological conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and cancer. To gain further insights into the in vivo functions of this protease, we have generated mutant mice deficient in Mmp19. These mice are viable and fertile and do not display any obvious abnormalities. However, Mmp19-null mice develop a diet-induced obesity due to adipocyte hypertrophy and exhibit decreased susceptibility to skin tumors induced by chemical carcinogens. Based on these results, we suggest that this enzyme plays an in vivo role in some of the tissue remodeling events associated with adipogenesis, as well as in pathological processes such as tumor progression [less ▲]

The paper presents mineralogical characteristics and pecularities of minerals distribution in products from Cu cycle of clastic ore mineral processing in Cayeli concentrator, Turkey. Special attention has been drawn to the mineralogical pecularities of sphalerite. The study has covered 16 samples from Cu flotation feed, Cu rougher concentrate, Cu final concentrate and tailing, each sieved in 4 granulometric classes. Significant quantity of sphalerite charactarized by higher amount of Cu and Fe as isomorphic impurities or extemely fine crystals of chalcopyrite are present in the Cu concentrate. Based on the performed studies, an improvement in the processing circuit has been suggested - especially in the grinding and hydrocycloning circuits. [less ▲]

Ischaemia and reperfusion are suspected to alter chondrocyte metabolism. Here, we studied the effects of three oxygen (O2) tensions on the viability of equine articular chondrocytes isolated from the cartilage of the distal interphalangeal joint of horses. Chondrocytes were cultured in alginate beads under 1%, 5% or 21% gas phase O2 concentration for 14 days, cellular growth kinetics were measured (n=6), and the cells were observed by light microscopy after staining for necrotic and apoptotic cell detection. For information about the metabolic status, the intracellular adenosine triphosphate (ATP) content was measured. The number of chondrocytes remained stable for the first eight days, then decreased especially at 1% and 21% O2. At 21% O2, normal cells decreased and necrotic cells increased at the end of the 14 day-period. No significant variations were found at 5% O2 except for a decrease in necrotic cells at day 14. Most apoptotic cells were found at 1% O2 from days 5 to 11, and normal cells decreased during the same period. But an unexpected increase in normal cells and decrease in apoptotic cells were observed at day 14. The intracellular ATP content remained stable. It was concluded that, in a three-dimensional culture model of equine articular chondrocytes, O2 tension affected the viability of the cells after an 11-day period, with the most important effects observed at 21% and 1% O2 conditions.

The critical bacterial colonizaion of leg ulcers can impair their healing rate, aggravate the patient discomfort and increase the medical and nursing costs. In recent times, the dressings designed for leg ulcers have followed a pace of conceptual revolution. Some of them are now offered containing an antiseptic of the silver salt family. The silver concentraton delivered into the wound bed is important to consider when assessing treatment efficacy. The diversity of the silver-based dressings currently on the European market is as large as their differences in activity. Only a minority of these dressings adequately control the wound biocenosis. Their cost which is high for the patient, must be compared to that of nursing care that may become less important. The expected beneficit is a reduction in healing time. [less ▲]
