The current low consumption of n-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 LCPUFA) led scientists to wonder about the possible enrichment of human food, including meats such as beef, with n-3 LCPUFA. However, their biosynthesis from dietary n-3 PUFA seems limited in mammalian tissues implying that a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms(More)
N-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 LCPUFA) are subject of growing interest as they are of particular relevance for meat quality and human health. However, their content in the muscles of cattle is generally low probably as the complex result of their biosynthesis from dietary n-3 PUFA in the muscle and/or in other tissues/organs and of their(More)
The pharmacokinetics as well as erythrocyte and plasma protein binding of doxycycline were studied in fifteen patients with various renal function impairments after oral doxycycline polyphosphate single administration. Plasma half-life (t 1/2), area under the plasma concentration-time curve (AUC), urinary excretion, renal clearance, erythrocyte and plasma(More)
N-3 long-chain (LC) PUFA are known to be beneficial for human development and health. These properties explain the increasing interest in promoting n-3 LC PUFA deposition in bovine muscles, leading to healthier meats. In this context, this study aimed to identify possible limiting steps in the bioconversion of 18:3n-3 into n-3 LC PUFA in the longissimus(More)
This paper reports on steel pressure vessels to establish the relationship between the growth of ductile cracks and acoustics emission (AE) produced during the different steps of crack propagation in laboratory specimens (plastic deformation, crack initiation and propagation). To determine the efficiency of the AE method to detect the evolution of the(More)
