Ascoviruses (family Ascoviridae) are double-stranded DNA viruses with circular genomes that attack lepidopterans, where they produce large, enveloped virions, 150 by 400 nm, and cause a chronic, fatal disease with a cytopathology resembling that of apoptosis. After infection, host cell DNA is degraded, the nucleus fragments, and the cell then cleaves into(More)
A satellite DNA family (APSU) was isolated and characterized in the ant Aphaenogaster subterranea. This satellite DNA is organized in tandem repeats of 162 bp and is relatively AT rich (51.9%). Sequence analysis showed a high level of homogeneity between monomers. Loss of satellite DNA has been detected in queens in relation to workers, because the amount(More)
Diadromus pulchellus is a solitary endoparasitoid wasp that parasitizes the pupae of the leek-moth, Acrolepiosis assectella (Lepidoptera). Hitherto, every individual D. pulchellus from France that has been investigated was infected by an orthoreovirus, DpRV-1, and an ascovirus, DpAV-4. Recently, a new strain of D. pulchellus, established from a French field(More)
A unique satellite DNA family was characterized in the genome of the bumble bee, Bombus terrestris. Sequence analysis revealed that it contains two wide palindromes of about 160 and 190 bp, respectively, that span 75% of the repeated unit. One feature of this satellite DNA is that it accounts for different amounts of genomic DNA in males and females. The(More)
BACKGROUND There appears little consensus concerning protein requirements in phenylketonuria (PKU). METHODS A questionnaire completed by 63 European and Turkish IMD centres from 18 countries collected data on prescribed total protein intake (natural/intact protein and phenylalanine-free protein substitute [PS]) by age, administration frequency and method,(More)
BACKGROUND There is no published data comparing dietary management of urea cycle disorders (UCD) in different countries. METHODS Cross-sectional data from 41 European Inherited Metabolic Disorder (IMD) centres (17 UK, 6 France, 5 Germany, 4 Belgium, 4 Portugal, 2 Netherlands, 1 Denmark, 1 Italy, 1 Sweden) was collected by questionnaire describing(More)
OBJECTIVES We had for aim to determine the characteristics of carbapenemase-producing enterobacteria (CPE) carriers and to assess the economic impact of isolation measures leading to loss of activity (closed beds, prolonged hospital stays) and additional personnel hours. PATIENTS AND METHODS We conducted a retrospective study for 2years (2012/2013), in a(More)
