Patent
Aria Energie Developpement Environnement, French National Institute for Agricultural Research and French National Center for Scientific Research | Date: 2017-01-18

The invention relates to a device for separating a first gas component and a second gas component which are contained in a gas mixture, comprising: a liquid/gas absorption separation column (10), comprising a lower tank (12) and an upper separation area (11); means for placing the gas mixture in contact, with a liquid solution capable of selectively absorbing the second gas component, via counter-flow circulation in the separation area (11); and means (19) for recovering the first gas component, separate from the second gas component. The tank (12) stores a volume (16) of absorbing solution. The transverse cross-sectional surface of the tank (12) of the absorption column (10) is no lower than twice the transverse cross-sectional surface of the separation area (11) of the absorption column (10).

The invention relates to a dominant mutation in the TDM gene leading to the production of 2n gametes in plants, to the plants comprising said mutation, and to their use in plant breeding. The invention relates also to plants in which the dominant mutation in the TDM gene is combined with the inactivation of a gene involved in meiotic recombination in plants and a gene involved in the monopolar orientation of the kinetochores during meiosis. These plants which produce apomeiotic gametes are also useful in plant breeding.

The present invention relates to the use of a composition comprising at least one saturated free fatty acid and at least one unsaturated free fatty acid as additive, for modifying the mechanical properties of a thermoplastic polymer material. The present invention also relates to an additivated thermoplastic polymer material and to the process for producing same.


Patent
French National Center for Scientific Research, French National Institute for Agricultural Research and Toulouse 1 University Capitole | Date: 2017-02-15

The present invention relates to ex vivo method for producing outer membrane vesicles (OMVs) by expression or overexpression of the hemolysin F gene (hlyF) in gram-negative bacterium.


Patent

The present invention relates to methods and pharmaceutical compositions for preventing or treating inflammatory bowel diseases.


Patent
Montpellier University, French National Center for Scientific Research and French National Institute for Agricultural Research | Date: 2017-05-17

The present invention relates to the use of a biopolymer as a sensitive material in a dielectric gas sensor for water vapor, carbon dioxide, and/or ethanol.


Patent
French National Institute for Agricultural Research and Institute Des Science Et Industries Du Vivant Et Of Lenvironnement | Date: 2017-03-08

The invention relates to a method for transforming levoglucosenone into 4-hydroxymethyl butyrolactone or 4-hydroxymethyl butenolide, comprising a step involving the oxidation of the levoglucosenone, or dihydrolevoglucosenone obtained by hydrogenation of levoglucosenone, by bringing a solution of levoglucosenone or dihydrolevoglucosenone in a solvent into contact with a lipase in the presence of an oxidizing agent and an acyl donor compound. The oxidation step is followed by a step involving the hydrolysis of the reaction mixture obtained, and, if necessary, a step involving the hydrogenation of the compound obtained at the end of the hydrolysis step.


Patent
French National Institute for Agricultural Research and French National Center for Scientific Research | Date: 2017-03-15

The present invention relates to novel fusion polypeptides and the uses thereof. The invention particularly relates to conjugated coat proteins derived from nepoviruses, virus-like particles made with such proteins, and the uses thereof. The particles of the invention can expose and/or encage molecules of interest and have utility in various fields such as the pharmaceutical, agro, or veterinary areas.


Patent
French National Institute for Agricultural Research | Date: 2017-04-05

The invention relates to a method for increasing the frequency of meiotic recombination in plants, by inhibiting the RECQ4 or TOP3A protein, especially by mutagenesis or extinction of the RECQ4 or TOP3A gene coding for said protein. The invention can be used especially in the field of plant breeding and genetic mapping.


Patent
French National Institute for Agricultural Research | Date: 2017-03-08

The present invention concerns a device (1) for evaluating the orosensory perception of a subject. Said evaluation device (1) comprises a body (2) made from an edible material and comprising at least one detachable part (3) which comprises at least one compound of interest that is likely to constitute an orosensory stimulus, and is designed to be separated from a residual part (21) of said body (2) in order to be deposited in the oral cavity of said subject. Said detachable part or parts (3) are arranged in said body (2), forming a monobloc assembly, and are each delimited by a peripheral edge (31), at least a portion of which is rigidly connected to a residual part (21) of the body (2) by a weakened line (32) preferably consisting of a precut line.
