Many genes important in immunity are found as multigene families. The butyrophilin genes are members of the B7 family, playing diverse roles in co-regulation and perhaps in antigen presentation. In humans, a fixed number of butyrophilin genes are found in and around the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), and show striking association with particular(More)
Room temperature ionic liquids (RTIL) are molten salts starting to be used as nonmolecular solvents in separation methods mainly for their extremely low vapor pressure and thermal stability. RTILs are formed by an anion associated to a cation. This intrinsic structure gives them a dual nature. When used as additives in RPLC mobile phases to enhance basic(More)
A coupled process was studied for the removal of a chlorinated pesticide: 2,4Dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D). A home-made electrochemical flow cell was used for the pre-treatment and a biological treatment was then carried out using activated sludge supplied by a local wastewater treatment plant. 2,4-D was used as a target compound for the study. Several(More)
A combined process coupling an electro-Fenton pretreatment and a biological degradation in order to mineralize sulfamethazine (SMT) was investigated. The electro-Fenton pretreatment of SMT was first examined and the intermediates products were identified for an intial SMT amount of 0.36 mM, after 1 h electrolysis at pH 3, 18°C, 200 mA. 94.2% SMT was(More)
The aim of this work is to join the advantages of two different kinds of stationary phases: monolithic columns and zirconia-based supports. On the one hand, silica monolithic columns allow a higher efficiency with a lower back-pressure than traditional packed columns. On the other hand, chromatographic stationary phases based on zirconia have a higher(More)
Monolithic capillary columns based on zirconia were prepared directly from zirconium alkoxide. They were also prepared coating a classical silica based monolithic column with zirconium butoxide. Using the gradual evolution of the theophylline/caffeine separation factor, it was found that successive zirconia coatings produced the progressive fading of(More)
N-Butyl-phosphorotriamide (NBPT) is a fertilizer widely used for its urease inhibiting properties. Nevertheless, formulations currently commercialized are complex and do not avoid severe decrease of activity due to the low stability of the bioactive compound under acidic conditions. According to its structure, NPBT was thought to be able to interact with(More)
