Dung's argumentation system takes as input a set of arguments and a binary relation encoding attacks among these arguments, and returns different extensions of arguments. However, no indication is given on how to instantiate this setting, i.e. how to build arguments from a knowledge base and how to choose an appropriate attack relation. This leads in some(More)
Rats and mice exhibit a spontaneous attraction for lipids. Such a behavior raises the possibility that an orosensory system is responsible for the detection of dietary lipids. The fatty acid transporter CD36 appears to be a plausible candidate for this function since it has a high affinity for long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs) and is found in lingual papillae(More)
Conjugated linoleic acids (CLA) are a class of positional, geometric, conjugated dienoic isomers of linoleic acid (LA). Dietary CLA supplementation results in a dramatic decrease in body fat mass in mice, but also causes considerable liver steatosis. However, little is known of the molecular mechanisms leading to hepatomegaly. Although c9,t11- and(More)
Free fatty acids provide an important energy source as nutrients, and act as signalling molecules in various cellular processes. Several G-protein-coupled receptors have been identified as free-fatty-acid receptors important in physiology as well as in several diseases. GPR120 (also known as O3FAR1) functions as a receptor for unsaturated long-chain free(More)
Here we present a new paraconsistent logic, called quasi-classical logic (or QC logic) that allows the derivation of non-trivializable classical inferences. For this it is necessary that queries are in conjunc-tive normal form and the reasoning process is essentially that of clause nding. We present a proof-theoretic deenition, and semantics, and show that(More)
The problem of combining pieces of information issued from several sources can be encountered in various fields of application. This paper aims at presenting the different aspects of information fusion in different domains, such as databases, regulations, preferences , sensor fusion, etc., at a quite general level. We first present different types of(More)
