Nosso estudo propõe uma análise exaustiva das fontes históricas relativas à aplicação dos ordálios durante o reinado de Carlos Magno (768-814). Para tanto, assume uma perspectiva metodológica que associa os pressupostos da história do direito aos questionamentos da história social, investigando o complexo mecanismo de funcionamento do esquema probatório na justiça real carolíngia, explicando como ele se diferencia de acordo com o status social das partes, reproduzindo a organização social e os valores da época.; Our research deals with a comprehensive analysis of the historical sources pertaining to the use of the ordeals during the reign of Charlemagne (768-814). For such, we opted for a methodological perspective which associates the requisites of the legal history with those of social history. We intend to investigate the complex mechanism of the modes of proof of royal carolingian justice, explaining how they differentiate according to social status, thus reproducing the social organization and values of the age.

The coinfection of HIV and hepatitis B virus (HBV) and their vertical transmission constitute a public health problem in sub-Saharan countries of Africa. The objectives of this research are: i) identify the pregnant women that are coinfected by HIV and HBV at Saint Camille Medical Centre; ii) use three antiretroviral drugs (zidovudine, nevirapine and lamivudine) to interrupt the vertical transmission of HIV and HBV from infected mothers; and iii) use the PCR technique to diagnose children who are vertically infected by these viruses in order to offer them an early medical assistance. At Saint Camille Medical Centre, 115 pregnant women, aged from 19 to 41 years, were diagnosed as HIV-positive and, among them, 14 coinfected with HBV. They had at least 32 weeks of amenorrhoea and all of them received the HAART, which contained lamivudine. Two to six months after childbirth, the babies underwent PCR diagnosis for HIV and HBV. The results revealed that, among these mothers, 64.4% were housewives, 36.5% were illiterates, and only 1.7% had a university degree. The rate of vertical transmission of HIV and HBV was 0.0% (0/115) and 21.4% (3/14), respectively. The 3 mothers who transmitted the HBV to their children had all HBsAg, HbeAg, and HBV DNA positive. An antiretroviral therapy that in addition to zidovudine and nevirapine includes lamivudine could...

All jawed vertebrates possess well-differentiated thymuses and elicit T-cell-like cell-mediated responses; however, no surface T-cell receptor (TCR) molecules or TCR genes have been identified in ectothermic vertebrate species. Here we describe cDNA clones from an amphibian species, Ambystoma mexicanum (the Mexican axolotl), that have sequences highly homologous to the avian and mammalian TCR beta chains. The cloned amphibian beta chain variable region (V beta) shares most of the structural characteristics with the more evolved vertebrate V beta and presents approximately 56% amino acid identities with the murine V beta 14 and human V beta 18 families. The two different cloned axolotl beta chain joining regions (J beta) were found to have conserved all the invariant mammalian J beta residues, and in addition, the presence of a conserved glycine at the V beta-J beta junction suggests the existence of diversity elements. The extracellular domains of the two axolotl beta chain constant region isotypes C beta 1 and C beta 2 show an impressively high degree of identity, thus suggesting that a very efficient mechanism of gene correction has been in operation to preserve this structure at least from the early tetrapod evolution. The transmembrane axolotl C beta domains have been less well conserved when compared to the mammalian C beta but they do maintain the lysine residue that is thought to be involved in the charged interaction between the TCR alpha beta heterodimer and the CD3 complex.

Purified right-side-out (RSO) and inside-out (IO) plasma membrane vesicles release 35% of the total plasma membrane proteins after EDTA treatment. After such a treatment both types of vesicles exhibited the same total activity of (Na+ + K+)-stimulated Mg2+ adenosinetriphosphatase (ATPase; ATP phosphohydrolase, EC 3.6.1.3) as in their native state. The EDTA treatment increases the enzyme sensitivity to ouabain by 350-fold in IO vesicles while being without any effect RSO vesicles. Thus, proteins released only from the IO vesicles led to a change in ouabain sensitivity of the (Na+ + K+)-stimulated Mg2+ ATPase. Moreover, only proteins released from IO vesicles, when added to treated IO vesicles with divalent cations, were able to restore the original resistance of the enzyme to ouabain; released proteins from RSO vesicles failed to make such a reconstitution. Thus, we assume that these proteins detach from the inner face of the plasma membrane upon EDTA treatment and are distinct from the enzyme. Polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis indicates that these inner face plasma membrane proteins are approximately 30,000 daltons.

Polyadenylation-induced translation is an important regulatory mechanism during metazoan development. During Xenopus oocyte meiotic progression, polyadenylation-induced translation is regulated by CPEB, which is activated by phosphorylation. XGef, a guanine exchange factor, is a CPEB-interacting protein involved in the early steps of progesterone-stimulated oocyte maturation. We find that XGef influences early oocyte maturation by directly influencing CPEB function. XGef and CPEB interact during oogenesis and oocyte maturation and are present in a c-mos messenger ribonucleoprotein (mRNP). Both proteins also interact directly in vitro. XGef overexpression increases the level of CPEB phosphorylated early during oocyte maturation, and this directly correlates with increased Mos protein accumulation and acceleration of meiotic resumption. To exert this effect, XGef must retain guanine exchange activity and the interaction with CPEB. Overexpression of a guanine exchange deficient version of XGef, which interacts with CPEB, does not enhance early CPEB phosphorylation. Overexpression of a version of XGef that has significantly reduced interaction with CPEB, but retains guanine exchange activity, decreases early CPEB phosphorylation and delays oocyte maturation. Injection of XGef antibodies into oocytes blocks progesterone-induced oocyte maturation and early CPEB phosphorylation. These findings indicate that XGef is involved in early CPEB activation and implicate GTPase signaling in this process.

1 Hypertrophy of the cardiac myocytes resulting from a mechanical overload may be responsible for major membraneous modifications, either at the sarcolemmal or at the sarcoplasmic level. In this study several sarcolemmal markers such as β-adrenoceptors, muscarinic receptors or (Na+,K+)-ATPase were investigated in an experimental model of cardiac hypertrophy, the chronic aortic stenosis in adult rats.

In an attempt to identify urodele amphibian lymphocyte subpopulations by their surface markers, we prepared hybridomas from BALB/c mice spleen immunized with axolotl (Ambystoma mexicanum) blood and splenic leucocytes and purified immunoglobulins. Sixty-five hybridomas were selected and subsequently subcloned. Among numerous monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) thus obtained, four mAbs were extensively characterized by immunoblotting, single and double fluorescence and immunohistology. MAb 34.38.6 recognizes polypeptides between 65,000 and 72,000 MW and labels in immunofluorescence nearly all thymocytes, 60-63% splenic lymphocytes of normal animals but only 9% splenic lymphocytes in thymectomized animals. MAb 19.14.2 reacts with a 98,000 MW protein and labels a restricted lymphocyte population in thymus (52-77%) and spleen (20-25%). The immunohistological study demonstrates that 34.38.6 and 19.14.2 label most thymocytes and a large proportion of spleen leucocytes including lymphocytes, granulocytes and macrophages. In addition, 19.14.2 labels some large interdigitating cells in thymic epithelial areas and splenic cords. MAbs 33.45.1 and 33.101.2, respectively, recognize heavy (72,000-88,000 MW) and light (20,000-27,000 MW) axolotl immunoglobulin chains. They do not react with thymocytes but label a splenic lymphocyte population not labelled by mAb 34.38.6. The proportion of surface immunoglobulin-positive (sIg+) lymphocytes in spleen is not altered by thymectomy. MAb 33.101.2 labels 40-48% of splenic lymphocytes...

The following fish orders, at different stages of phylogenetic development, were tested for serum antibody activity against actin, myosin, tubulin, thyroglobulin, haemocyanin, single-stranded DNA and trinitrophenyl (TNP): Elasmobranches (sharks), Chondrosteans (sturgeons), and Teleosts (bony fish). Significant antibody activity was found against all these self and non-self antigens but, in particular, high titres of natural anti-TNP antibodies were noted. Anti-TNP antibodies were then isolated by affinity chromatography from pooled sera of several representative fish species, and studied by a non-competitive and a competitive enzyme immunoassay. When the isolated antibodies were tested by the non-competitive assay, Teleost (tench) anti-TNP antibodies bound almost exclusively to TNP, whereas Chondrostean and Elasmobranche antibodies bound mainly to TNP but also to one or more other antigens. When the isolated antibodies were examined by the competitive assay, they could be separated into three groups: (i) anti-TNP antibodies whose binding could be inhibited by TNP only (Teleosts); (ii) anti-TNP antibodies mainly inhibited by TNP but also significantly inhibited by two or three other antigens (Chondrosteans); and (iii) anti-TNP antibodies binding to different antigens but only slightly inhibited by them (Elasmobranches). These antibodies were found by immunocytochemical staining to bind to normal cell constituents...

Anti-horse erythrocyte (anti-HRBC) antibody synthesis was studied in normal, early thymectomized and adult thymectomized axolotls. The kinetics of the responses were similar to those described in the same species for antibody synthesis against bacterial or viral antigens. Booster injections did not induce any characteristic anamnestic responses. Early and adult thymectomized axoltls gave in three experimental groups higher anti-HRBC responses than controls. It is concluded that HRBC acts in the axolotl as a thymus-independent antigen. The enhanced response in early as well as in adult thymectomized animals can be interpreted by the presence of a suppressor T-cell activity on anti-HRBC synthesis. These results do not exclude possible thymus-dependent responses for antibody synthesis in the axolotl, although such responses were not demonstrated in urodele. The questionable lacking of some functional T-cell subsets in urodele is discussed as a working hypothesis.

The left tibia of Charlemagne, the Medieval "Father of Europe" has been X-rayed and CT scanned to determine his still highly debated stature. We found the healthy bone to be long (430 mm) but rather not robust (total mid-shaft cross-sectional area 473 mm(2), cortical area 352 mm(2)). Reconstructed stature of 1.84 m falls at about 99% of Medieval heights, which would be ca. 1.95 m in present-day Europe. Thus, tall stature indeed could have contributed to the success of "Charles the Great" as a king emperor and soldier.; Frank J. Rühli, Bernhard Blümich and Maciej Henneberg

El objetivo de este artículo se centra en el análisis en profundidad del doble papel que el Cid juega en el Cantar. Mediante la revisión, bajo la perspectiva de una investigación mía previa, de ideas desarrolladas por otros colegas en las que se discutía si el Cid interpreta de algún modo el papel de Roland o Carlomagno en el Cantar, apoyo la idea de que el Campeador no juega uno solo sino ambos papeles, dependiendo del contexto de las diferentes escenas en las que el Cid se involucra a lo largo del poema.; The aim of this article is focused on analysing in depth the double role the Cid plays in the "Cantar". By revising under the perspective of a previous research of mine the ideas developed by other colleagues discussing whether the Cid somehow performs the role of Roland or Charlemagne in the "Cantar", I support the idea that the Campeador plays not only one but both roles, depending on the context of the different scenes the Cid is involved along the poem.

Este trabajo ofrece un recorrido exhaustivo por los textos y documentos relacionados con la épica carolingia durante los siglos XI y XII, mostrando su importancia para la historia de la épica española. Partiendo de una exploración de la presencia de la memoria de Carlomagno, se intenta reconstruir el contexto de las alusiones más antiguas a la leyenda rolandiana, como la «Nota emilianense» (c. 1070-1080). Ofrece un nuevo tratamiento de las falsificaciones documentales en que aparece Bernardo de Ribagorza (del fines del siglo XI) en una de las cuales se le considera de la familia de Carlomagno, y discute su conexión con la leyenda posterior situada en el Carpio, en el reino de León. Finalmente, este artículo presenta un nuevo documento debido a Pelayo de Oviedo (obispo entre 1102-1143), que revela la amplia circulación de la materia carolingia en España. El análisis de este texto reúne las piezas hispánicas relacionadas con este asunto, en especial la Historia Silense y el Pseudo-Turpín, que comparten con él algunas características y ayudan a explicarlo y a interpretar sus referencias. Las conclusiones tratan de situarlo en la historia de la épica española y de mostrar la importancia de su contenido para el estudio de algunas tradiciones románicas...

My goal in this paper is to chart the relationship between the 19th- and 20th-century critical work on the “Karlamagnussaga” and the criticism engaging a dozen analogous Middle English Charlemagne romances. I start from the observation that in the work of foundational 19th-century medievalists like Gaston Paris there is a clear desire to "see" individual Middle English Charlemagne texts as the remnants of a hypothetical larger cyclic work which closely resembles the saga form. I then observe that other medieval textual critics in the later 19th and 20th centuries (chiefly in England and America) inherited Paris' over-enthusiastic notion and further developed an extensive theory of the dissemination and inscription of the Middle English Charlemagne romances which allowed them to describe and discuss the texts as if they were in fact the remnants of a saga-the fragments of a broader legendary and historical fiction under the control of a single directing hand, and with a core of coherent aesthetic principles controlling its structural elements, even to the extent of providing fictional names for this English "saga" and its author. The observations and claims made by these scholars remain largely unusable to the 21st-century medievalist...

À l’aube du IXe siècle, les Carolingiens prétendent imposer à l’Occident l’unité dans la foi et le culte. Cet idéal domine les pensées des empereurs qui se conçoivent comme protecteurs, législateurs et juges, mais aussi vicaires du Christ et recteurs de l’Église. De telles ambitions stimulent l’élaboration d’un gouvernement original. Comme les conquêtes avaient composé une vaste mosaïque de populations, de cultures et d’intérêts, la concorde posait un grand défi. Pour y répondre, Charlemagne et Louis le Pieux ont fait des communications leur premier outil politique. Leur inventivité et leur efficience furent appréciables, mais elles n’ont pas suffi à leur gagner toutes les adhésions : la discorde s’est installée là où l’empereur ne parvenait pas à maintenir une relation forte avec les élites régionales. Les distances et les modalités des communications déterminaient la nature de leurs échanges, donc leurs limites et, de ce fait, le destin de l’Empire carolingien. L’enquête aborde un vaste éventail documentaire : actes, capitulaires, correspondances, monnaies... Elle s’intéresse particulièrement aux relations du pouvoir impérial avec les élites du sud-ouest de l’empire. Ses résultats dépendent d’un étayage complexe : dispositifs de représentation du pouvoir...

D\'ungal's letter to Charlemagne on the double solar eclipse in the year 810 is extremely interesting both for its form and for its subject matter. Part I of the present study deals with the epistula as a literary work (genre, language, sources), dealing in turn with vocabulary, morphology and syntax, rythmical prose and rhetorical figures, literary and Biblical references. If we compare it with D\'ungal's other works, the letter is cast in the canonical oratio structure similar to his later Responsa contra Claudium (ed. Zanna, Firenze 2002) and it is likewise based on lengthy quotations drawns from Macrobius' commentary In Somnium Scipionis. A possible echo of Vitruvius' astronomical presentation in book IX of his De architectura is suggested. Finally, we attempt to define how the author's persona as famulus et orator and reclusus at St-Denis relates to Charlemagne and to abbot Waldo in his pursuit of Chirstian wisdom based on the Bible rahter than of scholarship per se based on academic research. Part II is a thorough technical discussion of the astronomical issue presented to the Irish scholar by the Emperor, i.e. The frequency of solar eclipses and their visibility in the two emispheres in the year 810 (see maps provided). It assesses D\'ungal's case in terms of eclipse theory and reviews previous comments on his letter to Charlemagne by astronomer Ismael Bullialdus (1605-1694). It also introduces us to first-hand knowledge of eclipses in history and nowadays...

Coneixem avui suficientment el context biogràfic i intel·lectual de l’obra principal de l’«últim filòsof romà», és a dir, de la Consolatio philosophiae de Boeci (480/485-524/526), i també el seu lloc a la història del pensament filosòfic entre l’antiguitat tardana i l’edat mitjana. El que falta, malgrat uns estudis importants sobre la història de la recepció literària i filosòfica de l’obra i sobre la transmissió dels seus nombrosos manuscrits medievals, és la contextualització dels còdexs individuals en el ja conegut perfil receptiu de l’obra, per redescobrir els interessos sociopolítics darrere de la lectura medieval. Dos nous fragments carolingis del text clàssic permeten fer una nova posada al punt de la recerca sobre la seva molt primerenca producció i recepció en els ambients de les corts carolíngies de Carlemany i Lluís el Pietós. La nostra contribució demostra que l’obra boeciana era una pauta de conducta central en els debats sobre les relacions entre poder i saviesa, i pot, així, treure a la llum noves facetes de la postura d’uns pensadors centrals en les seves lluites d’influència i audiència a les corts carolíngies.; We currently know quite a lot about the biographical and intellectual context of the last Roman philosopher’s main work...

Nees, Lawrence; The Gospels of Sta. Maria ad Martyres (Trier, Stadtbibliothek, Cod. 23, 122a/b), a Carolingian manuscript of ca. 800, contains a dedication poem mentioning Albinus, the Anglo-Saxon scholar Alcuin, as its author and donor of a two-part gift to a king, traditionally identified as Charlemagne, ruler of the Franks and Alcuin's friend and benefactor. The manuscript's luxurious, albeit decidedly non-classicizing, appearance disrupts the dominant interpretative paradigm, long associating the period of Charlemagne with the longing to revive a lost roman imperial tradition and its distinctive classical mode of visual expression. As such, the Trier manuscript has been relegated to a realm of secondary relevance in the scholarly discourse on Carolingian book production, and presumed to be a copy of the now lost original gift, regardless of the lack of known precedent for this practice. This dissertation problematizes this marginalization through a systematic investigation of the manuscript's textual and pictorial components, and proposes a likely place and context for its production. The closing years of the eighth century witnessed the Carolingian elite's engagement with complex issues pertaining to Frankish tradition, orthodoxy...

This poster represents my research exploring the (mis)representation of Muslims and Islamic Theology in the English Charlemagne Romance Cycle. The English Charlemagne Romance Cycle is a neglected body of medieval literature. Altogether the Cycle consists of ten verse romances and three prose romances spanning the 14th to the 16th century. The complete Cycle has never been analysed in terms of its representation of Muslims and Islamic Theology even though it is one of the most extended bodies of medieval literature written about Islam. My research is vital to expose the first understandings of Islam and of Muslims to be expressed in vernacular English. More so than ever before, inter-religious dialogue and Christian-Muslim relations are at the forefront of daily life. The application of my research will redress the balance in understanding medieval English perceptions of Islam.
