Despite many studies on the impact of arable land conversion to Short Rotation Coppice (SRC), few studies have been carried out on soil biota. This study aims at assessing biological and physico-chemical soil properties that are affected by SRC compared to forestry, grassland and an agrosystem. All samples were collected in the Aisne valley (France), from(More)
Human heteromeric amino acid transporters (HATs) are membrane protein complexes that facilitate the transport of specific amino acids across cell membranes. Loss of function or overexpression of these transporters is implicated in several human diseases such as renal aminoacidurias and cancer. HATs are composed of two subunits, a heavy and a light subunit,(More)
Twenty normal-hearing subjects were tested to determine their speech reception thresholds (SRTs) using the Tillman-Olsen method and a modification of their method requiring no knowledge of the pure-tone audiogram from which to estimate the SRT. Varying amounts of attenuation were added to the line leading to the test earphone to minimize experimenter bias.(More)
