In order to maintain healthy colonies, termite workers dispose of the cadavers of dead nest mates by cannibalism, burial, or necrophoresis. However, when multiple reproductives found a new colony by pleometrosis, there are no worker castes at the early stages of the foundation to eliminate or isolate the corpses. In this study, we showed that in young(More)
X-ray Free Electron Lasers (FELs) can produce extremely intense and very short pulses, down to below 10 femtoseconds (fs). Among the key applications are ultrafast time-resolved studies of dynamics of matter by observing responses to fast excitation pulses in a pump-probe manner. Detectors with sufficient time resolution for observing these processes are(More)
Pseudacanthotermes spiniger and P. militaris are two African fungus-growing termites (Termitidae, Macrotermitinae) which may become pests in disturbed agrosystems where they often live in sympatry. To study their development and their reproductive strategies, colonies of both species were reared in the laboratory for 20 and 17 years, respectively, after(More)
Two new monoclonal antibodies--BNH9 and BNF13--were generated by using a human lung adenocarcinoma cell line and standard hybridoma techniques. Both were found to react with epithelial and endothelial cells in routinely fixed and embedded tissues. Unexpected membrane labelling of some large cell lymphomas while non-reacting with normal lymphoid cells,(More)
Multiplexing of the Linac Coherent Light Source beam was demonstrated for hard X-rays by spectral division using a near-perfect diamond thin-crystal monochromator operating in the Bragg geometry. The wavefront and coherence properties of both the reflected and transmitted beams were well preserved, thus allowing simultaneous measurements at two separate(More)

Finite-element simulations of strain distribution in the non-perforated and the perforated springs were performed using ANSYS R program. Using finite-element simulation a linear relation between the spring deformation and the exerted force was found. It was established that for the maximum deflection of the spring in the all-diamond assembly (350 µm) the(More)
Objective. To investigate the relationship between IGF-I and the nutritional status of West-African children hospitalised for nutritional rehabilitation. Patients and methods. A cohort study was performed in two centres for nutritional rehabilitation and education (CREN) in Burkina Faso. Children were followed and the anthropometric data as well as the(More)
