Theoretische Ansätze sehen die Anzahl der Regeln in einer Matrizenaufgabe als eine der Determinanten für die Belastung des Arbeitsgedächtnisses. Eine mögliche Ursache könnte das Speichern von Teillösungen bei Matrizenaufgaben mit mehreren Regeln sein. In der vorliegenden Studie wurde untersucht, ob Personen mit einer hohen Arbeitsgedächtniskapazität durch das Speichern von Teillösungen bei der Lösung von Matrizenaufgaben profitieren. Hierzu wurde in einem Innerhalb-Design den Testpersonen (N=84) eine Matrizentestversion präsentiert, bei der das Arbeitsgedächtnis belastet werden sollte, indem die Teillösungen vor der Eingabe mental aufrechterhalten werden mussten. Zudem wurde eine Version präsentiert, in der Teillösungen direkt eingegeben werden konnten, was zu einer Entlastung des Arbeitsgedächtnisses führen sollte. Beide Matrizentestversionen zeigen einen moderaten Zusammenhang mit der Arbeitsgedächtniskapazität. Allerdings zeigen sich keine Unterschiede zwischen den beiden Korrelationen, was als Evidenz gewertet werden kann, dass das Speichern von Teillösungen keinen bedeutsamen Moderator für den Zusammenhang von Arbeitsgedächtniskapazität und der Leistung in einem Matrizentest darstellt.

The sarcolemmal calcium pumps (PMCA for plasma membrane calcium/calmodulin dependent ATPase) are a family of 10 transmembrane domain proteins ejecting calcium from the cytosol. They are encoded by four independent genes and at least 21 splice variants have been described. Isoforms 1 and 4 are ubiquitous, whereas isoforms 2 and 3 are confined to neurons and few other cells (e.g. isoform 2 in the myocardium). In non-excitable cells they are thought to be the only calcium ejection systems and their function as governors of calcium balance is hence intuitive since cells cannot survive in a state of calcium overload. Differences in the affinity of the various isoforms for calcium, ATP and calmodulin have been described, but it is unclear whether the pumps have specialized functions over and above their 'housekeeping' role. In particular, in excitable cells, most calcium is ejected by the sodium/calcium exchanger suggesting that the PMCAs may have evolved into a specialized role. Recently, our group has identified a number of specialized functions of the PMCAs, notably a prominent regulatory role of PMCA4 (splice variant b) for neuronal NO synthase as well as for the Ras pathway. In addition, mice carrying a genetic deletion of the PMCA4 gene showed normal female, but completely infertile male animals. This is due to a highly specific defect in sperm motility, which is reduced to zero, with normal fertilization capacity. Overall, a scenario emerges where the plasma membrane calcium pumps fulfil roles far beyond the traditional housekeeping function, notably in cell signaling, sperm motility, and potentially in cell division. Consequently, we are currently exploring their potential as future drug targets for a variety of conditions, as well as their potential use in the development of a male contraception. [less ▲]

Consider a three dimensional cusped spherical CR manifold M and suppose that the holonomy representation of $\pi_1(M)$ can be deformed in such a way that the peripheral holonomy is generated by a non-parabolic element. We prove that, in this case, there is a spherical CR structure on some Dehn surgeries of M. The result is very similar to R. Schwartz's spherical CR Dehn surgery theorem, but has weaker hypotheses and does not give the uniformizability of the structure. We apply our theorem in the case of the Deraux-Falbel structure on the Figure Eight knot complement and obtain spherical CR structures on all Dehn surgeries of slope $-3 + r$ for $r \in \mathbb{Q}^{+}$ small enough.

We apply a spherical CR Dehn surgery theorem in order to obtain infinitely many Dehn surgeries of the Whitehead link complement that carry spherical CR structures. We consider as a starting point the spherical CR uniformization of the Whitehead link complement constructed by Parker and Will, using a Ford domain in the complex hyperbolic plane H2C. We deform the Ford domain of Parker and Will in H2C in a one-parameter family. On one side, we obtain infinitely many spherical CR uniformizations on a particular Dehn surgery on one of the cusps of the Whitehead link complement. On the other side, we obtain spherical CR uniformizations for infinitely many Dehn surgeries on the same cusp of the Whitehead link complement. These manifolds are parametrized by an integer n≥4, and the spherical CR structure obtained for n=4 is the Deraux–Falbel spherical CR uniformization of the figure eight knot complement. [less ▲]

Elevated levels of the pro-inflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor-α (TNFα) inhibit erythropoiesis and cause anemia in patients with cancer and chronic inflammatory diseases. TNFα is also a potent activator of the sphingomyelinase (SMase)/ceramide pathway leading to ceramide synthesis and regulating cell differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis, senescence, and autophagy. Here we evaluated the implication of the TNFα/SMase/ceramide pathway on inhibition of erythropoiesis in human CD34+ hematopoietic stem/progenitor cells (CD34/HSPCs) from healthy donors. Exogenous synthetic C2- and C6-ceramide as well as bacterial SMase inhibited erythroid differentiation in erythropoietin-induced (Epo)CD34/HSPCs shown by the analysis of various erythroid markers. The neutral SMase inhibitor GW4869 as well as the genetic inhibition of nSMase with small interfering RNA (siRNA) against sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase 3 (SMPD3) prevented the inhibition by TNFα, but not the acid SMase inhibitor desipramine. Moreover, sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), a ceramide metabolite, restored erythroid differentiation, whereas TNFα inhibited sphingosine kinase-1, required for S1P synthesis. Analysis of cell morphology and colony formation demonstrated that erythropoiesis impairment was concomitant with a granulomonocytic differentiation in TNFα- and ceramide-treated EpoCD34/HSPCs. Inhibition of erythropoiesis and induction of granulomonocytic differentiation were correlated to modulation of hematopoietic transcription factors (TFs) GATA-1, GATA-2, and PU.1. Moreover, the expression of microRNAs (miR)-144/451, miR-146a, miR-155, and miR-223 was also modulated by TNFα and ceramide treatments, in line with cellular observations. Autophagy plays an essential role during erythropoiesis and our results demonstrate that the TNFα/neutral SMase/ceramide pathway inhibits autophagy in EpoCD34/HSPCs. TNFα- and ceramide-induced phosphorylation of mTORS2448 and ULK1S758, inhibited Atg13S355 phosphorylation, and blocked autophagosome formation as shown by transmission electron microscopy and GFP-LC3 punctae formation. Moreover, rapamycin prevented the inhibitory effect of TNFα and ceramides on erythropoiesis while inhibiting induction of myelopoiesis. In contrast, bafilomycin A1, but not siRNA against Atg5, induced myeloid differentiation, while both impaired erythropoiesis. We demonstrate here that the TNFα/neutral SMase/ceramide pathway inhibits erythropoiesis to induce myelopoiesis via modulation of a hematopoietic TF/miR network and inhibition of late steps of autophagy. Altogether, our results reveal an essential role of autophagy in erythroid vs. myeloid differentiation. [less ▲]

Neutrophils play a fundamental role in host defense by neutralizing pathogens through the generation of ROS by NOX2. In nonexcitable cells, Ca(2+) influx is essentially mediated via SOCE, a complex mechanism in which depletion of intracellular Ca(2+) stores from the ER results in Ca(2+) entry through Ca(2+) SOCs at the plasma membrane. In this regard, it is well established that extracellular Ca(2+) entry participates to NOX2 activation. S1P, produced by SphKs, has been involved in Ca(2+) homeostasis and thus, could intervene in NOX2 regulation. The aim of this study was to characterize the importance of SphKs in NOX2 activation and the signaling cascade involved in this mechanism. Treatment of neutrophil-like dHL-60 cells by DHS, a SphK inhibitor, and SphK siRNA inhibited fMLF-induced NOX2 activity. Sequential activation of cells by thapsigargin and the phorbol ester PMA revealed that SphK-regulated NOX2 activity relies on intracellular Ca(2+) store depletion. Confocal microscopy and immunoblot analysis showed that stimulation by thapsigargin and PMA mediated S100A8/A9 recruitment to the plasma membrane and p38 MAPK activation. S100A8/A9 translocation decreased when SphK activity was blocked. This result was confirmed in purified human neutrophils, which were physiologically stimulated by fMLF. In addition, p38 MAPK was found to be regulated by SphKs. These results define a pathway leading to NOX2 activation, in which p38 MAPK-mediated S100A8/A9 translocation is regulated by Ca(2+) store depletion-dependent SphK activation. [less ▲]

Während der Kindergarten eine selbstverständliche Domäne des kindlichen Spiels darstellt, ist die Bedeutung des Spiels in der Grundschule als produktives Element der Didaktik des Unterrichts bis heute kaum ins Blickfeld getreten. Das Buch fragt nach der Bedeutung des Spiels in der Schule und nach Spielformen, die sich produktiv im Unterricht einsetzen lassen. Es führt dafür das theoretische Wissen über die Struktur des Spiels mit dem Wissen um die kindliche Erkenntnistätigkeit im Rahmen einer qualitativ-empirischen Studie zusammen und entwickelt Grundsätze der Unterrichtsgestaltung in der Grundschule, um Elemente des Spielens und Erkennens im Unterricht zu verknüpfen.
