TL;DR: The main classes of fluorescent molecular sensors for cation recognition are presented: they differ by the nature of the cation-controlled photoinduced processes: photoinduced electron transfer, photoinduced charge transfer, excimer formation or disappearance as discussed by the authors.
Abstract: The main classes of fluorescent molecular sensors for cation recognition are presented: they differ by the nature of the cation-controlled photoinduced processes: photoinduced electron transfer, photoinduced charge transfer, excimer formation or disappearance. In each class, distinction is made according to the structure of the complexing moiety: chelators, podands, coronands (crown ethers), cryptands, calixarenes. The most representative examples are presented in each subclass with special attention given to selectivity.

TL;DR: This is the first study providing evidence for Zika virus infection causing Guillain-Barré syndrome, and because Zika virus is spreading rapidly across the Americas, at risk countries need to prepare for adequate intensive care beds capacity to manage patients with Guillay-B Barré syndrome.
Abstract: Summary Background Between October, 2013, and April, 2014, French Polynesia experienced the largest Zika virus outbreak ever described at that time. During the same period, an increase in Guillain-Barre syndrome was reported, suggesting a possible association between Zika virus and Guillain-Barre syndrome. We aimed to assess the role of Zika virus and dengue virus infection in developing Guillain-Barre syndrome. Methods In this case-control study, cases were patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome diagnosed at the Centre Hospitalier de Polynesie Francaise (Papeete, Tahiti, French Polynesia) during the outbreak period. Controls were age-matched, sex-matched, and residence-matched patients who presented at the hospital with a non-febrile illness (control group 1; n=98) and age-matched patients with acute Zika virus disease and no neurological symptoms (control group 2; n=70). Virological investigations included RT-PCR for Zika virus, and both microsphere immunofluorescent and seroneutralisation assays for Zika virus and dengue virus. Anti-glycolipid reactivity was studied in patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome using both ELISA and combinatorial microarrays. Findings 42 patients were diagnosed with Guillain-Barre syndrome during the study period. 41 (98%) patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome had anti-Zika virus IgM or IgG, and all (100%) had neutralising antibodies against Zika virus compared with 54 (56%) of 98 in control group 1 (p Interpretation This is the first study providing evidence for Zika virus infection causing Guillain-Barre syndrome. Because Zika virus is spreading rapidly across the Americas, at risk countries need to prepare for adequate intensive care beds capacity to manage patients with Guillain-Barre syndrome.

TL;DR: A method for estimating haplotypes, using genotype data from unrelated samples or small nuclear families, that leads to improved accuracy and speed compared to several widely used methods is presented.
Abstract: An efficient haplotype-estimation algorithm that features linear complexity allows the rapid and accurate phasing of diploid genomes from trios, duos and unrelated samples.

TL;DR: The results showed that in French normal adults living in an urban environment with a lack of direct exposure to sunshine, diet failed to provide an adequate amount of vitamin D, and the clinical utility of winter supplementation with low doses ofitamin D was discussed.
Abstract: The vitamin D status of a general adult urban population was estimated between November and April in 1569 subjects selected from 20 French cities grouped in nine geographical regions (between latitude 43° and 51° N). Major differences in 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) concentration were found between regions, the lowest values being seen in the North and the greatest in the South, with a significant ‘sun’ effect (r = 0.72; p = 0.03) and latitude effect (r = -0.79; p = 0.01). In this healthy adult population, 14% of subjects exhibited 25(OH)D values ≤ 30 nmol/l (12 ng/ml), which represents the lower limit (< 2 SD) for a normal adult population measured in winter with the same method (RIA Incstar). A significant negative correlation was found between serum intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH) and serum 25(OH)D values (p < 0.01). Serum iPTH held a stable plateau level at 36 pg/ml as long as serum 25(OH)D values were higher than 78 nmol/l (31 ng/ml), but increased when the serum 25(OH)D value fell below this. When the 25(OH)D concentration became equal to or lower than 11.3 nmol/l (4.6 ng/ml), the PTH values reached the upper limit of normal values (55 pg/ml) found in vitamin D replete subjects. These results showed that in French normal adults living in an urban environment with a lack of direct exposure to sunshine, diet failed to provide an adequate amount of vitamin D. It is important to pay attention to this rather high prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency in the general adult population and to discuss the clinical utility of winter supplementation with low doses of vitamin D.
TL;DR: In this paper, the results obtained on the electrochemical behavior of electrochemical capacitors assembled in nonaqueous electrolyte are presented and the impedance of the supercapacitors is discussed in terms of complex capacitance and complex power.
Abstract: This paper presents the results obtained on the electrochemical behavior of electrochemical capacitors assembled in nonaqueous electrolyte. The first part is devoted to the electrochemical characterization of carbon-carbon 4 cm2 cells systems in terms of capacitance, resistance, and cyclability. The second part is focused on the electrochemical impedance spectroscopy study of the cells. Nyquist plots are presented and the impedance of the supercapacitors is discussed in terms of complex capacitance and complex power. This allows the determination of a relaxation time constant of the systems, and the real and the imaginary part of the complex power vs. the frequency plots give information on the supercapacitor cells frequency behavior. The complex impedance plots for both a supercapacitor and a tantalum dielectric capacitor cells are compared. © 2003 The Electrochemical Society. All rights reserved.
