The morphology and spatial distribution of the different types of neuromasts encountered on the trunk lateral line of the sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) were examined using scanning electron microscopy. The sea bass trunk lateral line exhibits a complete straight pattern. In their basic features, the two types of neuromasts present, canal and superficial, resemble what has been described in other fishes. They are similar in their general cellular organization but differ in sizes, and shapes, as well as in the densities and lengths of their hair bundles. However, the sea bass trunk lateral line distinguishes itself in several ways. For instance, the pores of the canal segments are partially obstructed due to the overlap of scales throughout the trunk. Moreover, based on the density and length of the hair bundles, two distinct areas, central and peripheral, could be distinguished within the maculae of canal neuromasts. Their cupulae are also peculiar as they possess two wing-like extensions and that their central core appears to be organized in layers instead of columns. In addition, the superficial neuromasts, up to 6 per scale, are either round or elliptical and seem to be distributed serendipitously. Finally, within the maculae of both types of neuromasts, a significant number of hair bundles do not follow the two-directional polarity pattern usually described. Although some hypotheses are proposed, the influence of these characteristics in terms of signal encoding and fish behavior is yet to be understood. [less ▲]

The lectin isolated from Xerocomus chrysenteron (XCL) displays a toxic activity towards insects. In order to assess its possible mode of action and to gather useful data for its potential use in insect-resistant transgenic plants, we investigated the effects of XCL at the cellular level. Immunofluorescence microscopy studies revealed that XCL is rapidly internalized into small endocytic vesicles that further coalesce in the perinuclear region. We show that XCL is endocytosed by the clathrin-dependent pathway, and is delivered to late endosome/lysosome compartments. The internalization of XCL seems to be general since it occurs in different cell types such as insect (SF9) or mammalian (NIH-3T3 and Hela) cell lines. In the presence of XCL, the uptake of GFP and BSA is greatly enhanced, demonstrating that XCL facilitates endocytosis. Thus, XCL could serve as a delivery agent to facilitate the endocytosis of proteins that do not enter the cell alone. [less ▲]

The present paper presents studies and tools devoted to the reduction of uncertain-ties in the scientific knowledge of various unsteady flows, including solid transport effects, in the perspective of applications such as restoration, rehabilitation and enhancement of riverbeds, rivers and waterways. This global approach will be tested and fitted in a dynamic and integrated experimental model of reference flows in the laboratory. The relevance of using of physical experimental scale models will be highlighted for the identification of constitutive laws used in numerical modelling. Practical applications prove that the integration of powerful hydrodynamic software for water management is realistic and will lead to compute transient flooding, sedimentation and erosion events in natural compound channels, as well as to design and simulate the behaviour of hydraulic regulation works or locks. It will also help in working out new projects or reconstructions of hydraulic infrastructures, as well as ecological rehabilitations. Even if the sole quantitative plan will be taken into account, this opti-misation project will also lead to highlight favourable solutions, from a qualitative point of view. [less ▲]

This paper first summarizes the current possibilities and the perspectives of effective modeling of metal forming processes. Practical considerations on manpower requirement and data availability are included in the discussion. Then, two examples of advanced applications are presented: the micro-macro approach for the modeling of sheet metal forming and the modeling of continuous casting. [less ▲]

This paper presents a constitutive law based on taylor's model implemented in our non-linear finite element code LAGAMINE. The yield locus is only locally described and a particular interpolation method has been developed. This local yield locus model uses a discrete representation of the material's texture. The interpolation method is presented and a deep-drawing application is simulated in order to show up the influence of the texture evolution during forming processes. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVE: This study investigated a large number of families in which at least two individuals were diagnosed with abdominal aortic aneurysms to identify the relationship of the affected relatives to the proband. Subjects and Methods: Families for the study were recruited through various vascular surgery centers in the United States, Finland, Belgium, Canada, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom and through our patient recruitment website (www.genetics.wayne.edu/ags). RESULTS: We identified 233 families with at least two individuals diagnosed with abdominal aortic aneurysms. The families originated from nine different nationalities, but all were white. There were 653 aneurysm patients in these families, with an average of 2.8 cases per family. Most of the families were small, with only two affected individuals. There were, however, six families with six, three with seven, and one with eight affected individuals. Most of the probands (82%) and the affected relatives (77%) were male, and the most common relationship to the proband was brother. Most of the families (72%) appeared to show autosomal recessive inheritance pattern, whereas in 58 families (25%), abdominal aortic aneurysms were inherited in autosomal dominant manner, and in eight families, the familial aggregation could be explained by autosomal dominant inheritance with incomplete penetrance. In the 66 families where abdominal aortic aneurysms were inherited in a dominant manner, 141 transmissions of the disease from one generation to another were identified, and the male-to-male, male-to-female, female-to-male, and female-to-female transmissions occurred in 46%, 11%, 32%, and 11%, respectively. CONCLUSION: Our study supports previous studies about familial aggregation of abdominal aortic aneurysms and suggests that first-degree family members, male relatives, in particular, are at increased risk. No single inheritance mode could explain the occurrence of abdominal aortic aneurysms in the 233 families studied here, suggesting that abdominal aortic aneursyms are a multifactorial disorder with multiple genetic and environmental risk factors.
