Partiendo de la estructura de un proyecto de tesis, esta charla esboza primero un estado de la cuestión relativo a la autoficción "fantástica", de Colonna (2004) hasta Casas (2015), pasando por Alberca (2007, 2012). Basándonos en diversas teorías de lo fantástico, explicamos los motivos que nos conducen a rechazar el empleo del calificativo "fantástico", y sugerimos otro, menos específico. Pasamos luego al análisis de algunos rasgos formales —tipo de mímesis y artificialidad entre otros— y temáticos —el cuerpo, el sexo y el espacio—, antes de especular respecto a la posible relación entre la autoficción "fantástica" y el contexto histórico, social y político de su emergencia. Nuestra hipótesis, inspirada en las ideas defendidas por Molkou (2002) y Alberca (2007), es que estaría íntimamente vinculada a la "violencia", entendida en sentido amplio. [less ▲]

Over the past few years, the number of publications about lung microbiota has considerably increased due to the advancement of new molecular technologies. In dogs, only two studies in healthy experimental beagles have been published. Interestingly, we recently reported major differences in the lung microbiota composition and diversity between experimental healthy beagles and healthy client-owned West Highland white terriers (WHWT) suggesting an impact of the breed or of the living environment on lung microbiota composition. Accordingly, to further assess the effect of living environment, the aim of the present study was to compare lung microbiota data obtained in healthy WHWT (n = 5) living in Finland with those previously obtained in healthy WHWT (n = 5) living in Belgium. For this purpose, bronchoalveolar lavage was retrospectively selected. Metagenetic analysis were performed after DNA extraction and sequencing on a MiSeq Illumina sequencer. Taxonomical assignation and microbiota community analysis were done with MOTHUR V1.35 with an OTU clustering distance of 0.03. Data analyses demonstrated that the same 4 major phyla Proteobacteria, Firmicutes, Actinobacteria, and Bacteroidetes predominated in both groups of dogs. Significant but subtle differences were observed between groups. Results of the present study do not demonstrate a clear impact of the living environment on lung microbiota composition. In conclusion, analysis of larger cohorts of healthy dogs with various living conditions appears necessary. [less ▲]

Le triptyque mosan de la Sainte Croix de Liège (vers 1170), naguère encore conservé dans la collégiale éponyme de Liège, est bien connu des chercheurs. Des examens en laboratoire ont permis de reconsidérer le dossier, déjà pourtant rouvert pour les Mélanges Marie-Madeleine Gauthier en 1996. Un aggiornamento sera fait après la publication des deux ouvrages sur L’œuvre de la Meuse (Liège, 2014 et 2016). L’intervention portera ensuite sur les émaux, à la suite de la précédente communication faite à Limoges en 2013 sur le Guennol-triptych contemporain. [less ▲]

Class A β-lactamases have been widely used as versatile scaffolds to create hybrid (or chimeric) proteins for a series of applications ranging from basic research to medicine. We have, in particular, used the β-lactamase BlaP from Bacillus licheniformis 749/C (BlaP) as a protein scaffold to create model polyglutamine (polyQ) proteins in order to better understand the mechanism(s) by which an expanded polyQ sequence triggers the formation of amyloid fibrils. The model chimeras were designed by inserting a polyQ sequence of various lengths at two different locations within BlaP (i.e. position 197 or position 216) allowing a detailed comparison of the effects of subtle differences in the environment of the polyQ sequence on its ability to trigger protein aggregation. In order to investigate the effects of the polyQ insertion at both positions on the structure, stability and dynamics of BlaP, a series of NMR experiments including H/D exchange are foreseen. Accordingly, as necessitated by these studies, here we report the NMR assignment of the wild-type BlaP (BlaP-WT) and of the two reference proteins BlaP197Q0 and BlaP216Q0, wherein a dipeptide Pro-Gly has been introduced at position 197 and 216, respectively; this dipeptide originates from the addition of the Sma1 restriction site at the genetic level to allow further polyQ sequence insertion.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of fattening pig diets containing rice distiller’s by-product (RDP) on growth performance, carcass characteristics and meat quality. A total of 24 castrated male crossbred pigs ♂Duroc ×♀(Landrace × Yorkshire) were used for the experiment. Pigs were divided randomly by weight and litter into 3 diets, with 4 replications of 2 pigs in each pen. Pigs were fed one of 3 diets including DAR0 (control), DAR15 (15% RDP in dry matter) and DAR30 (30% RDP in dry matter) during 8 weeks. The results showed that the diets with RDP tended to affect average daily gain (P=0.09) and feed conversion ratio (P=0.08), while feed cost was decreased (P<0.001). Carcass traits was not significantly different between the diets, however back fat thickness was increased by RDP levels (P=0.03). Drip loss of Longissimus dorsi muscle at 24 and 48 hours was increased (P<0.05), whereas there were not effect on pH value and meat color at 45 min, 24 and 48 hours postmortem. Muscle lipid content was increased (P<0.01), whereas protein content was not influenced by RDP in diets. This suggests that using diet with 30% RDP for fattening pigs can improve lipid content of Longissimus dorsi muscle and reduce feed costs while not affecting growth performance and meat quality.

SF6 total columns are successfully retrieved from FTIR measurements (Saint Denis and Maïdo) at Réunion Island (21 S, 55 E) between 2004-2016 using the SFIT4 algorithm: the retrieval strategy and the error budget are presented. The FTIR SF6 retrieval has independent information in only one individual layer, covering the whole troposphere and the lower stratosphere. The trend of SF6 is analysed based on the FTIR retrieved dry air column-averaged mole fractions (XSF6 ) at Réunion Island, the in-situ measurements at America Samoa (SMO) and the collocated satellite measurements (MIPAS and ACE-FTS) in the southern tropics. The SF6 annual growth rate from FTIR retrievals is 0.265±0.013 pptv/year for 2004–2016, which is slightly weaker than that from the SMO in-situ measurements (0.285±0.002 pptv/year) for the same time period. The SF6 trend in the troposphere from MIPAS and ACE-FTS observations is also close to the ones from the FTIR retrievals and the SMO in-situ measurements. [less ▲]

The Corinth Rift, Greece, is a young and active continental rift stretching over 150 km between the cities of Patras and Athens, and is partly covered by the sea forming the Gulf of Corinth. The present study is focused on the western tip of the Gulf, west of the town of Aigion, where the extension rate measured by GPS is the highest, reaching 14-16 mm/yr. The sediments were investigated using seismic reflection profiling (600 km) to characterize the evolution over the last 120 ka of the sedimentation, subsidence and faulting activity. We combined two lines of evidence, the position of lowstand deltas and isopach maps. The isopach maps were built using two stratigraphic markers could be traced through the seismic grid, the most recent one corresponds to the last post-glacial transgression and the antecedent one to MIS 6 / MIS 5 transgression, at ca. 130 ka. The related isopach maps evidence a spatial change in sedimentary infill along the rift axis probably related to a decrease in activity of the south-dipping faults (i.e. Trizonia/Mornos Faults) that formed the northern edge of the westernmost Corinth Rift in an early stage of the rifting. The different identified lowstand fluvio-deltaic deposits are related to global sea-level lowstands during which the Gulf of Corinth was a lake, whose last reconnection to the Sea occurred around 11.5 ka. Concerning lowstand deltas formed around 11.5 ka, the subsidence rates exceed 3 mm/yr and are maximal under the apex of the Mornos fan-delta (5.0-6.6 mm/yr) and in the hanging wall of the north-dipping Lambiri fault (5.9-7.5 mm/yr). Regarding the anterior lowstand delta, the subsidence was lower ranging from 1 to 2.7 mm/yr. These changes would arise because of the northward migration of the strain toward the north, e.g. the Marathias fault. [less ▲]

Lithium-ion batteries have been widely applied as a power source for portable and stationary energy storage systems. Na-ion batteries are considered to be an alternative to Li-ion batteries owing to the natural abundance of sodium. New electrode materials are required to increase the energy density of Li/Na-ion batteries. In this study, we show that the addition of the carbon sources during the synthesis leads to control the particles size and morphology and improve their conductivity properties that enhance the electrochemical performance [1-5]. In order to study the effect of the carbon on the structural, morphological and electrochemical properties of the prepared materials by a spray-drying [1-3] or hydrothermal methods [4, 5]. The crystal and local structure were analyzed by XRD and Mössbauer spectroscopy. The morphological properties were characterized by SEM and TEM. The carbon content was determined by TG/TDA and carbon analyzer. The electrochemical properties were studied by impedance spectroscopy and galvanostatic cycling in lithium cells. Finally, the reaction mechanism during cycling was investigated using operando XRD technique. 1- A. Mahmoud, S. Caes, M. Brisbois, R.P. Hermann, L. Berardo, A. Schrijnemakers, C. Malherbe, G.

« Etre immergé dans le jeu », « être plongé au coeur de l'histoire », « on s’y croirait » : autant d’expressions qui désignent ce moment où la frontière entre réel et virtuel semble s’effacer. Dans le contexte du jeu vidéo, le terme « immersion » est très souvent employé (que ce soit par les joueurs, par les développeurs mais aussi par les scientifiques), mais que signifie-t-il exactement ? Le jeu nous coupe-t-il vraiment de la réalité ? Cette conférence reviendra sur les différentes façons de concevoir l'immersion, et sur leurs implications sur notre compréhension de la relation entre le joueur et le jeu. [less ▲]
