Given the present state of our knowledge, the question about the links between Egyptian and Greek medicine is far from being resolved. Some convergences can in fact be detected, but when you study them further, you will find that they reveal a loan, or a simple coincidence, or else a false interpretation of the sources. At the end of the sixth century BC, Pharaonic medicine was outclassed and influenced little by little by Greek medicine. Lastly, the Coptic medical treatises, composed in Egyptian language, but written in Greek characters, combine some Greek and finally Arabic borrowings. [less ▲]

An uncoupling protein was recently discovered in plant mitochondria and demonstrated to function similarly to the uncoupling protein of brown adipose tissue. In this work, green tomato fruit mitochondria were purified on a self-generating Percoll gradient in the presence of 0.5% bovine serum albumin to deplete mitochondria of endogenous free fatty acids. The uncoupling protein activity was induced by the addition of linoleic acid during the resting state, and in the progressively uncoupled state, as well as during phosphorylating respiration in the presence of benzohydroxamic acid, an inhibitor of the alternative oxidase and with succinate (+ rotenone) as oxidizable substrate. Linoleic acid strongly stimulated the resting respiration in fatty acid-depleted mitochondria but had no effect on phosphorylating respiration, suggesting no activity of the uncoupling protein in this respiratory state. Progressive uncoupling of state 4 respiration decreased the stimulation by linoleic acid. The similar respiratory rates in phosphorylating and fully uncoupled respiration in the presence and absence of linoleic acid suggested that a rate-limiting step on the dehydrogenase side of the respiratory chain was responsible for the insensitivity of phosphorylating respiration to linoleic acid. Indeed, the ADP/O ratio determined by ADP/O pulse method was decreased by linoleic acid, indicating that uncoupling protein was active during phosphorylating respiration and was able to divert energy from oxidative phosphorylation. Moreover, the respiration rates appeared to be determined by membrane potential independently of the presence of linoleic acid, indicating that linoleic acid-induced stimulation of respiration is due to a pure protonophoric activity without any direct effect on the electron transport chain.

This study aimed at verifying if the hypothesis that one day at 60 °C is equivalent to one month at 20 °C could be confirmed during linseed oil aging for 6 months at 20 °C and 6 days at 60 °C using the “Schaal oven stability test”. Tests were conducted with linseed oil supplemented or not with myricetin or butyl-hydroxytoluene as antioxidants. Oxidation was evaluated with the peroxide and p-anisidine values, as well as the content in conjugated dienes and aldehydes. All four indicators of oxidation showed very different kinetic behaviors at 20 and 60 °C. The hypothesis is thus not verified for linseed oil, supplemented or not with antioxidant. In the control oil, the conjugated dienes and the peroxide value observed were respectively of 41.8 ± 0.8 Absorbance Unit (AU)/g oil and 254.3 ± 5.8 meq. O2/kg oil after 6 months at 20 °C. These values were of 18.2 ± 1.3 AU/g oil and 65.2 ± 20.3 meq. O2/kg after 6 days at 60 °C. [less ▲]

In the beginning of the 16th century, the princes of the House of Burgundy-Habsburg, Philip the Fair and his son Charles, travelled several times to Spain. These travels radically transformed the scope of their political possibilities. Philip became king consort of Castile, along with his spouse Joanna, while Charles, as heir to the Catholic Kings, seized the crowns of all the Spanish Kingdoms. At least since the second half of Philip the Good’s reign, the main political objective of the rulers of the Low Countries was the acquisition of a royal title, dignity, and power. This paper examines how, at a time when such a crown was in their reach, the courtly authors of Philip the Fair and Charles of Habsburg wrote elaborate travel accounts of their masters’ journeys to Spain. In their narrations, they created a royal figure and image that legitimated their masters’ place in their new function. They also established a new distinctive model of monarchy, which they inscribed at the crossroads of the political actions of the Dukes of Burgundy and those of the Catholic Kings. Furthermore, they connected this type of kingship to what they considered to be the main political forces of Spain: the Grandees and the Spanish Cortes. Lastly, their narratives capture a time of intense reflection on monarchical politics in the Low Countries shortly before the Imperial Election of Charles v redesigned the political landscape.

A novel class of surface-active carbohydrate esters is prepared by a two-step strategy that takes advantage of the selectivity of enzymatic catalysis and the versatility of the thiol-Michael addition reaction. The surfactant performance of the produced aliphatic, fluorinated and silicon based sugar esters are evaluated by surface tension measurements. The novel thiolated mannose, made available in this work, appears as a powerful building block for the incorporation of unprotected sugar moieties into complex molecules. [less ▲]

Sugar fatty acid esters are broadly consumed in many commercial applications and their synthesis gained a considerable interest since they are biodegradable, tasteless, odorless, non-toxic and non-irritant. Ionic liquids are organic salts entirely comprised of ions with a melting point below 100°C. This new category of solvent may allow the enzymatic synthesis of sugar fatty acid ester to go toward a “greener” process. Within the purpose of using “green” systems for synthesis of glycosylated compounds, studies on the use of ionic liquids to obtain fatty acid sugar esters with carbohydrates coming from lignocellulosic material as substrates was carried out. The enzymatic synthesis of mannose myristate ionic liquids as enzymatic medium and the yield obtained will be presented in our poster. [less ▲]

Surfactants constitute an important class of compounds with a lot of applications, especially in the food and beverage industries (emulsion forming and stabilization, antiadhesive and antimicrobial activities)1. With the prospect of synthesising new active compounds, white biotechnology offers efficient tools. Indeed, the use of enzymes as biocatalysts provides an interesting synthetic route in comparison to the chemical way that often requires high reaction temperatures and suffers from a lack of specificity, resulting in complex mixtures. Among all the biocatalysts available, lipases represent a class of industrial interest 2,3. In parallel, the starting material is also an important parameter : due to the depletion of petroleum reserves, its ever increasing price and various environmental aspects, the use of renewable or biomass resources is inevitable. Within the frame of a biorefinery project, we focused on the lipase-assisted modification of uronic acids. These carbohydrates can be obtained from lignocellulosic material, and, in the presence of fatty alcohols, the Candida antarctica lipase B catalyses the synthesis of amphiphilic compounds. Owing to the initial conditions used and the addition of co-solvents, we optimized the synthesis of these bio-based potential surfactants, and obtained a panel of various structures depending to the acyl acceptor used. The poster will present the details of these syntheses. [less ▲]
