A karyotype of 2n = 52 chromosomes was found in two Eliomys quercinus (Linnaeus, 1766) specimens from two different localities of Tirol (Austria). The karyotype is similar to the one described in the Italian Alps, suggesting that these mountains were not a barrier to the northern expansion of this chromosomal race. [less ▲]

We address the question to what extent polyhedral knowledge about individual knapsack constraints suffices or lacks to describe the convex hull of the binary solutions to their intersection. It turns out that the sign patterns of the weight vectors are responsible for the types of combi- natorial valid inequalities appearing in the description of the convex hull of the intersection. In particular, we introduce the notion of an incom- plete set inequality which is based on a combinatorial principle for the intersection of two knapsacks. We outline schemes to compute nontrivial bounds for the strength of such inequalities w.r.t. the intersection of the convex hulls of the initial knapsacks. An extension of the inequalities to the mixed case is also given. This opens up the possibility to use the inequalities in an arbitrary simplex tableau. [less ▲]

Aim. The volleyball is a situational sport classified among activities laying on alternative aerobe and anaerobe processes, with an important participation of the muscular mass and an accentuated prevalence of the alactacid anaerobe process. Within a population of young top volleyball athletes, the goal of the study was to compare several anthropometrical and functional variables according to the role of the player during the game. Methods. Data were collected by 42 volleyball players which trained with the Italian national junior team, divided into four groups: 1) side spikers (n=14; age=18.5 +/- 1.4 y.); 2) centre spikers (n=15; age 18.1 +/- 11.1 y.); (3) setters (n=7; age=18.4 +/- 1.3 y), and; 4) universal spikers (n=6; age=17.5 +/- 0.8 y.). Morphological data were height, weight, body mass index (BMI), indirect ratio of body fat determined by the method of Katch (%BF), reach with 1 (R1) or 2 (R2) hands. The explosive force was measured with the method of Bosco [1] : squat jump (SJ), counter movement jump (CMJ), CMJ with arms (CMJas) and repeated jumps during 15 seconds (RJ15). The ability to jump was measured with the Vertec test in two conditions: spike (Vertec attack, VA) and block (Vertec block, VB). Jumping performance was determined through the difference between VA and R1 (running spring, RS) and VB and R2 (standing spring, SS). Results. Significant differences were pointed out for the height (F=4,75; p < 0,006), R1 (F=3,6; p < 0,02) and R2 (F=3,66; p < 0,02). For the three anthropological variables, centre spikers (C) were significantly higher than setters (S). Comparing players' performance at the Bosco test, no significant differences appeared between groups. Results of Vertec test showed significant differences in VA (F = 7.29; p < 0.001) where group C performed better than groups S and U (universal spikers), and in VB (F = 3.95; p < 0.05) where group C achieved significantly better then setters. Analysis of the correlation matrix showed that height and weight were strongly correlated between them and with R1 and R2. Performances at Bosco test and at Vertec test were respectively correlated between them but no correlation was observed between results of Bosco and Vertec test. With Bosco test gathered information provide an assessment of the jumping ability without connection to the specific skills while Vertec test provide more specific information about the athlete's ability to use spring in specific conditions. A high correlation was identified between anthropometrics variables and the results of the Vertec test. Multiple regression analysis confirmed that, excepted %BF which is only (inversely) correlated to Vertec performances, all groups of variables were correlated between them. Conclusion. Results pointed out that in junior top level volleyball, the anthropometrical profile of the players is directly related to specific variables which must be used to select talented athletes and to plan training in connection with specific role of the player in the game. Because of the reduced duration of the game episodes and to the increasing intensity of the game rhythm, the modern volleyball involve increasingly the alactacid anaerobe component. It is for all above reasons that top level volleyball needs always more muscular powerful athletes who are also fast and able to use high jumping abilities. For that reason, assessment, training and follow up of the jumping abilities become some of the most determinant aspects of the player's effectiveness. Data underline the interest of the use of specific tests to identify the jumping ability of volleyball athletes. The protocol developed in that study can provide determinant information during the first phase of athletes' selection. [less ▲]

We measured brain activity in 12 adults for the repetition of auditorily presented words and nonwords, before and after repeated exposure to their phonological form. The nonword phoneme combinations were either of high (HF) or low (LF) phonotactic frequency. After familiarization, we observed, for both word and nonword conditions, decreased activation in the left posterior superior temporal gyrus, in the bilateral temporal pole and middle temporal gyri. At the same time, interaction analysis showed that the magnitude of decrease of activity in bilateral posterior temporal lobe was significantly smaller for LF nonwords, relative to words and HF nonwords. Decrease of activity in this area also correlated with the size of behavioral familiarization effects for LF nonwords. The results show that the posterior superior temporal gyrus plays a fundamental role during phonological learning. Its relationship to sublexical and lexical phonological processing as well as to phonological short-term memory is discussed. (c) 2004 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Phosphorus is mainly present in the serum as phosphate which is the principal intracellular anion, essential for the organism, in particular through its role in the production of ATP. In plasma, only inorganic phosphorus (Pi) is measured. In this article, we will review new information about the regulation of Pi at the intestinal, osseous and mainly renal levels. The various cotransporters sodium-phosphorus (Na-Pi) will also be examined and the molecular regulation mechanisms approached. Finally, illustration of Pi physiology will be given through various clinical examples. [less ▲]

Blood pressure variability is a physiological phenomenon influenced by many internal and external factors. This variability could be also influenced by pathological conditions such as arterial hypertension. Two forms must be mainly distinguished: the blood pressure variability at long but also short-term. The latter could only be studied by continuous recordings. From the initial invasive intraarterial approach, it can nowadays be explored by a non invasive system of beat to beat recordings using the infrared photo plethysmography (the FINAPRES system). In this paper, some important questions will be treated such as the interest of measuring blood pressure variability, its cardiovascular prognosis and how therapeutic tools can be applied when it is increased?

Using transient transfection assays, regulation properties of varicella-zoster virus (VZV)-encoded IE63 protein were analyzed on several VZV immediate early (ORF4), early (ORF28) and late (ORF67) promoters. IE63 was shown to repress the basal activity of most of the promoters tested in epithelial (Vero) and neuronal (ND7) cells to various extents. Trans -repressing activities were also observed on heterologous viral and cellular promoters. Since a construct carrying only a TATA box sequence and a series of wild-type or mutated interleukin (IL)-8 promoters was also repressed by IE63, the role of upstream regulatory elements was ruled out. Importantly, the basal activity of a TATA-less promoter was not affected by IE63. Using a series of IE63 deletion constructs, amino acids 151-213 were shown to be essential to the transrepressing activity in Vero cells, while in ND7 cells the essential region extended to a much larger carboxy-terminal part of the protein. We also demonstrate that IE63 is capable of disrupting the transcriptional pre-initiation complex and of interacting with several general transcription factors. The central and carboxy-terminal domains of IE63 are important for these effects. Altogether, these results demonstrate that IE63 protein is a transcriptional repressor whose activity is directed towards general transcription factors. [less ▲]
