We report on a type of surface structuring after short pulse laser ablation of a binary alloy. We observe the emergence of a concentric ring structure with changing elemental composition. The composition changes are interpreted by condensation of the ambient ablation vapor due to stress wave excitations in the ablation spot. [less ▲]

The aim of this study is to provide a comprehensive discussion of the use of the Ellison and Glaeser index and subsequently to carry out a descriptive analysis of the geographical concentration of the manufacturing sector in Belgium. To assess the degree of concentration, individual plant data on wage and salary earners are used, with a relatively fine geographical breakdown (districts and townships). It is shown that more than 30% of the industries are excessively agglomerated. [less ▲]

In response to a variety of stimuli, neutrophils release large amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by NADPH oxidase. This process known as the respiratory burst is dependent on cytosolic free calcium concentration ([Ca(2+)](i)). Proinflammatory cytokines such as interleukin-8 (IL-8) may modulate ROS generation through a priming phenomenon. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of human IL-8 on ROS production in neutrophil-like dimethylsulfoxide-differentiated HL-60 cells (not equalHL-60 cells) and further to examine the role of Ca(2+) mobilization during the priming. IL-8 at 10 nM induced no ROS production but a [Ca(2+)](i) rise (254 +/- 36 nM). IL-8 induced a strongly enhanced (2 fold) ROS release during stimulation with 1 microM of N-formyl-L-methionyl-L-leucyl-L-phenylalanine (fMLF). This potentiation of ROS production is dependent of extracellular Ca(2+) (17.0+/-4.5 arbitrary units (A.U.) in the absence of Ca(2+) versus 56.6 +/- 3.9 A.U. in the presence of 1.25 mM of Ca(2+)). Also, IL-8 enhanced fMLF-stimulated increase in [Ca(2+)](i) (375 +/- 35 versus 245 +/- 21 nM, 0.1 microM of fMLF). IL-8 had no effect on not equalHL-60 cells in response to 1 microM of thapsigargin (472 +/- 66 versus 470 +/- 60 nM). In conclusion, Ca(2+) influx is necessary for a full induction of neutrophil priming by IL-8. [less ▲]

Increasing evidence suggests that actin cross-linking or bundling proteins might not only structure the cortical actin cytoskeleton but also control actin dynamics. Here, we analyse the effects of T-plastin/T-fimbrin, a representative member of an important actin-filament cross-linking protein by combining a quantitative biomimetic motility assay with biochemical and cell-based approaches. Beads coated with the VCA domain of the Wiskott/Aldrich-syndrome protein (WASP) recruit the actin-nucleating Arp2/3 complex, polymerize actin at their surface and undergo movement when placed in cell-free extracts. T-Plastin increased the velocity of VCA beads 1.5 times, stabilized actin comets and concomitantly displaced cofilin, an actin-depolymerizing protein. T-Plastin also decreased the F-actin disassembly rate and inhibited cofilin-mediated depolymerization of actin filaments in vitro. Importantly, a bundling-incompetent variant comprising the first actin-binding domain (ABD1) had similar effects. In cells, this domain induced the formation of long actin cables to which other actin-regulating proteins were recruited. Altogether, these results favor a mechanism in which binding of ABD1 controls actin turnover independently of cross-link formation. In vivo, this activity might contribute to the assembly and maintenance of the actin cytoskeleton of plasma-membrane protrusions. [less ▲]

In PD, the impact of nocturnal respiration on sleep continuity and architecture has not been systematically investigated by polysomnography (PSG). We performed a case-control study with retrospective analysis of PSG data of 49 PD patients. After classifying the PD patients according to their apnea/hypopnea index (AHI), they were matched with 49 controls in terms of age, gender, and AHI. There were 21 PD patients (43%) who had sleep apnea syndrome (SAS), classified as mild (AHI, 5-15) in 10 patients, moderate (AHI, >15-30) in 4 patients, and severe (AHI, > 30) in 7 patients. PD patients had more deep sleep (P = 0.02) and more nocturnal awakenings (P < 0.001) than the controls. Their body mass index (BMI) was lower (P = 0.04), and they maintained a more favorable respiratory profile, with higher mean and minimal oxygen saturation values (P = 0.006 and 0.01, respectively). These differences were preserved when only considering PD patients with AHI > 15. PD patients had less obstructive sleep apneas (P = 0.035), independently from the factor AHI. Only the respiratory changes of 4 PD patients with BMI > 27 and AHI > 15 (8%) approximated those seen in the controls. At an early or middle stage of the disease, non-obese PD patients frequently have AHI values suggesting SAS, however, without the oxygen desaturation profile of SAS. Longitudinal studies of patients with such "abortive" SAS are warranted to establish if this finding reflects benign nocturnal respiratory muscle dyskinesia or constitutes a precursor sign of dysautonomia in PD.
