Natural fire frequency for the eastern Canadian boreal forest: consequences for sustainable forestry
Given that fire is the most important disturbance of the boreal forest, climatically induced changes in fire frequency (i.e., area burnt per year) can have important consequences on the resultingExpand

New selective ligands of human cloned melatonin MT1 and MT2 receptors
Melatonin has a key role in the circadian rhythm relay to periphery organs. Melatonin exerts its multiple roles mainly through two seven transmembrane domain, G-coupled receptors, namely MT1 or MT2Expand

Characterisation of human melatonin mt(1) and MT(2) receptors by CRE-luciferase reporter assay.
A cyclic AMP response element (CRE)-luciferase reporter gene assay was used to characterise the functional responses of human melatonin mt(1) and human melatonin MT(2) receptors, stably expressed inExpand

Fire frequency and vegetation dynamics for the south-central boreal forest of Quebec, Canada
Fire history and forest dynamics were reconstructed for a 3800-km2 territory located in the south-central boreal forest of Quebec. Fire cycle was characterized using a random sampling strategyExpand

Substrate Specificity and Inhibition Studies of Human SerotoninN-Acetyltransferase*
Arylalkylamine N-acetyltransferase (AANAT) catalyzes the reaction of serotonin with acetyl-CoA to formN-acetylserotonin and plays a major role in the regulation of the melatonin circadian rhythm inExpand

Past, current, and future fire frequencies in Quebec's commercial forests : implications for the cumulative effects of harvesting and fire on age-class structure and natural disturbance-based
The past decade has seen an increasing interest in forest management based on historical or natural disturbance dynamics. The rationale is that management that favours landscape compositions andExpand

Forest structure and composition at young fire and cut edges in black spruce boreal forest
We compared structure and composition at forest edges created by wildfire and clear-cutting in black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP) dominated boreal forest in northwestern Quebec. ForestExpand

Three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationships of cyclo-oxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors: a comparative molecular field analysis.
The three-dimensional quantitative structure-activity relationship (3D-QSAR) approach using comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) was applied to an extensive series of 305 variedExpand

Benzoselenazolinone derivatives designed to be glutathione peroxidase mimetics feature inhibition of cyclooxygenase/5-lipoxygenase pathways and anti-inflammatory activity.
Two series of compounds, substituted benzoselenazolinones and their opened analogs, diselenides, were prepared. The diselenides were designed according to the available SAR about glutathioneExpand
