Concrete filled steel hollow section (CFSHS) columns can carry important loads and therefore are used extensively in the construction of high-rise buildings. Steel hollow sections are filled usually with ordinary concrete, but filling problems may arise with small cross sections and dense reinforcement or hollow sections (tubes) surrounding another profile (tube or H section) when the distance between the two profiles is small. For such a configuration, self-compacting concrete can be recommended. Ten columns filled with self-compacting concrete embedding another steel profile have been tested in the Fire Engineering Laboratory of the University of Liege - Belgium. The non linear finite element software SAFIR developed at the University of Liege has been used to simulate the thermal and structural behavior under fire conditions. A good agreement between numerical and experimental results has been obtained. This shows that SAFIR code can predict well the behavior of CFSHS columns and that the properties of self-compacting concrete at high temperatures can be considered to be the same as those of ordinary concrete. Another purpose of this study was to give practical tools to consulting engineers. [less ▲]

RIC-8 is a highly conserved cytosolic protein (63 KDa) initially identified in C. elegans as an essential factor in neurotransmitter release and asymmetric cell division. Two different isoforms have been described in mammals, RIC-8A and RIC-8B; each possess guanine nucleotide exchange activity (GEF) on heterotrimeric G-proteins, but with different Gα subunits specificities. To gain insight on the mechanisms involved in RIC-8 cellular functions it is essential to obtain some information about its structure. Therefore, the aim of this thesis was to study the relationship between structure and function on RIC-8, using as model RIC-8 from X. laevis. Analysis in its primary structure did not give us information about the function of xRIC-8 and RIC-8 proteins were showed as a single family without similarity with others. For this reason, to obtain a 3D model of xRIC-8, different bioinformatics approaches that include protein folding and structure prediction were used. The RIC-8 structural model is composed of 10 armadillo folding motifs, organized in a right-twisted alpha-alpha super helix. In order to validate the structural model, a His-tag fusion construct of RIC-8 was expressed in E. coli, purified by affinity and anion exchange chromatography and subjected to circular dichroism analysis (CD) and thermostability studies. This model together with the comparison among RIC-8 proteins that shows a high conservation in the carboxy region, deletion mutants that remove the last three armadillo domain were created in order to search a loss of the GEF function. The mutants could not be expressed in bacteria for in vitro assays, but their expression in HEK293T culture showed that all of them preserved the GEF activity. Furthermore, confocal microscopy showed that all the mutants could translocate to plasmatic membrane under stimulation with isoproterenol, and have the capacity to interact with Gs. The results of this thesis has allowed present the first 3D model for a RIC-8 protein, as well as classify RIC-8 as a new member of the protein family with armadillo repeats. Functionally, the carboxi terminal region, the most conserved among RIC-8, did not show has the GEF activity, and did not alter its behavior in HEK293T cell cultures while was stimulated with isoproterenol.

Quaternary prevention – an (increasingly) important theme in family medicine “Prevention is better than cure”. This principle is undisputed. New knowledge points to the fact that prevention can also do harm. Under the concept “quaternary prevention” efforts are currently focused on finding the right measure of preventive care, true to the old medical tenet “primum non nocere”. The Editors of PrimaryCare have pleasure in joining this trailblazing new discussion via the article of Thomas Kuehlein et al., which in its present form is based on Marc Jamoulle’s workshop “About quaternary prevention” at the European Wonca Congress 2009 in Basel. We publish it unabridged. The contribution appeared in several languages, and can be found in English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Croatian at www.primary-care.ch. [less ▲]

Plus de cinquante ans après leur mise sur le marché, les sulfamidés hypoglycémiants font toujours partie du traitement de base du diabète non insulinodépendant. A côté de leurs remarquables propriétés pharmacologiques, ces produits ont, à différentes reprises, été tenus responsables d’hypoglycémies sévères survenant de manière inexpliquée chez des sujets non diabétiques. Ce type d’hypoglycémie, qualifiée de factice, est notamment fréquemment retrouvée dans le syndrome de Munchausen, trouble psychiatrique poussant le malade à mimer une pathologie. Cette hypoglycémie est associée à un hyperinsulinisme endogène simulant une pathologie endocrine très rare, l’insulinome. Nous souhaitons faire connaître aux Cliniciens l’intérêt de la recherche et du dosage sanguin des sulfamidés hypoglycémiants dans le cadre du diagnostic différentiel des hyperinsulinismes. La mise en évidence d’une hypoglycémie induite par ces médicaments constitue un élément intéressant pour orienter le diagnostic et éventuellement éviter une pancréatectomie en cas de forte suspicion d’insulinome. La méthode analytique développée au laboratoire s’appuie sur la chromatographie liquide ultra performante couplée à la spectrométrie de masse tandem (UPLC -MS -MS ). Par cette technique, on peut mettre en évidence dans le sang une dizaine de sulfonylurées et le répaglinide. Elle constituera à l’avenir une méthode de choix face à toute suspicion de mésusage des sulfonylurées. [less ▲]
