Pro-inflammatory cytokines trigger signalling cascades leading to NF-kappaB (nuclear factor-kappaB)-dependent gene expression through IKK [IkappaB (inhibitory kappaB) kinase]-dependent phosphorylation and subsequent degradation of the IkappaB proteins and via induced phosphorylation of p65. These signalling pathways rely on sequentially activated kinases which are assembled by essential and non-enzymatic scaffold proteins into functional complexes. Here, we show that the pro-inflammatory cytokine TNFalpha (tumour necrosis factor alpha) promotes TANK [TRAF (TNF receptor-associated factor) family member associated NF-kappaB activator] recruitment to the IKK complex via a newly characterized C-terminal zinc finger. Moreover, we show that TANK is phosphorylated by IKKbeta upon TNFalpha stimulation and that this modification negatively regulates TANK binding to NEMO (NF-kappaB essential modulator). Interestingly, reduced TANK expression by RNA interference attenuates TNFalpha-mediated induction of a subset of NF-kappaB target genes through decreased p65 transactivation potential. Therefore the scaffold protein TANK is required for the cellular response to TNFalpha by connecting upstream signalling molecules to the IKKs and p65, and its subsequent IKKbeta-mediated phosphorylation may be a mechanism to terminate the TANK-dependent wave of NF-kappaB activation.

The text examines the work of three sociologists that draw heavily on modelizing explanation : Boudon, Elster and Dupuy. All of them alslo make an extensive use of literrary fiction in the core of their sociological explanation. Above the métaphoric use of fictional examples, the texts defends the idea that modelizing sociology, as paradoxical as it may appear, is very at ease with the use of literary examples because the familiarity with explanatory models helps them to make a clear difference between theory and reality.

Converser, entrer en dialogue avec les autres disciplines du paysage nécessite, dans un premier temps, de positionner la spécificité de l'approche de l'aménagement du territoire parmi elles. Cette mise en contexte passe par une présentation succincte de la genèse et de la consolidation de la discipline. On en définit ensuite le champ général, dans lequel peut être située la question du paysage dans son émergence et son difficile positionnement parmi la tendance fonctionnaliste originelle, puis sasituation actuelle à l'heure de la convention européenne du paysage. Cette évolution implique de situer la nécessaire adaptation méthodologique de la pensée disciplinaire. On présentera enfin les divers enjeux et outils d'aménagement du paysage selon les échelles territoriales d'appréhension et de décision. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Within semi-closed areas like the Mediterranean Sea, anthropic wastes tend to concentrate in the environment. Metals, in particular, are known to persist in the environment and can affect human health due to accumulation in the food chain. The seagrass Posidonia oceanica, widely found in Mediterranean coastal waters, has been chosen as a "sentinel" to quantify the distribution of such pollutants within the marine environment. Using a technique similar to dendrochronology in trees, it can act as an indicator of pollutant levels over a timeframe of several months to years. In the present study, we measured and compared the levels of eight trace metals (Cr, Ni, Cu, Zn, As, Se, Cd, and Pb) in sheaths dated by lepidochronology and in leaves of shoots sampled from P. oceanica meadows collected from six offshore sites in northern Corsica between 1988 and 2004; in the aim to determine 1) the spatial and 2) temporal variations of these metals in these areas and 3) to compared these two types of tissues. RESULTS: We found low trace metal concentrations with no increase over the last decade, confirming the potential use of Corsican seagrass beds as reference sites for the Mediterranean Sea. Temporal trends of trace metal concentrations in sheaths were not significant for Cr, Ni, Cu, As or Se, but Zn, Cd, and Pb levels decreased, probably due to the reduced anthropic use of these metals. Similar temporal trends between Cu levels in leaves (living tissue) and in sheaths (dead tissue) demonstrated that lepidochronology linked with Cu monitoring is effective for surveying the temporal variability of this metal. CONCLUSION: Leaves of P. oceanica can give an indication of the metal concentration in the environment over a short time period (months) with good accuracy. On the contrary, sheaths, which gave an indication of changes over long time periods (decades), seem to be less sensitive to variations in the metal concentration in the environment. Changes in human consumption of metals (e.g., the reduction of Pb in fuel) are clearly reflected in both organs. These results confirm that P. oceanica is a good bioindicator of metals and a good biomonitor species for assessing Cu in the environment. [less ▲]

We consider the problem of regulating a monopolist with unknown costs when the regulator has limited funds. The optimal regulatory mechanism sat- isfies four properties. The first property is bunching at the top, that is the more efficient types produce the same quantity irrespective of their costs. The second property is separability of less efficient types. The third property is full bunching of types when the available fund is small enough. The fourth property of the mecha- nism is that it is a third best one, that is, the output under this regulatory mechanism is strictly lower than the second best output for any given type. [less ▲]

The present study examined how aging influences item and associative recognition memory, and compared memory for two types of associations: associations between the same kinds of information and associations between different kinds of information. A group of young adults and a group of older adults performed a forced-choice face recognition task and two multitrial forced-choice associative recognition tasks, assessing memory for face-face and face-spatial location associations. The results showed disproportionate age-related decline of associative recognition compared to intact item recognition. Moreover, aging affected both types of associative tasks in the same way. The findings support an associative deficit hypothesis (Naveh-Benjamin, Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory and Cognition, 26, 1170–1187, 2000), which attributes a substantial part of the age effect on episodic memory tasks to difficulty with binding individual components into a cohesive memory trace. This associative deficit seems to affect same-information associations, as well as different-information associations. [less ▲]
