During the last decades, several research groups developed investigations in order to characterize proteins or glycoproteins synthesized by ruminant placenta. As result of these investigations, a large family of pregnancy-associated glycoproteins was identified in bovine ovine and caprine placenta. By using molecular biology techniques, it was demonstrated that they are members of the aspartic proteinase superfamily, in which they co-exist with pepsinogens, renin, cathepsin D and E, etc. Due to their secretion in large amounts by the trophoblastic binucleated cells, bovine PAGs are detectable in maternal circulation soon after implantation. In the present work, in addition to the physiological and biochemical characterization of bovine PAGs, it will be showed how the measurement of PAG concentrations in maternal blood is useful for both pregnancy confirmation and follow-up of the fetus-placental well-being. Available information related to other placental proteins will be also discussed. [less ▲]

The relationship between trophic position through delta(13)C and delta(15)N and trace metal concentrations (Zn, Cd, Cu and Hg) was investigated in the tissues of six marine mammal species from the Northeast Atlantic: striped dolphin Stenella coeruleoalba, common dolphin, Delphinus delphis. Atlantic white-sided dolphin Lagenorhynchus acutus, harbour porpoise Phocoena phocoena, white beaked-dolphin Lagenorhynchus albirostris, grey seal Halichoerus grypus stranded on French Channel and Irish coasts. White-beaked dolphins, harbour porpoises, white-sided dolphins, common and striped dolphins display the same relative and decreasing trophic position, as measured by delta(15)N values, along both the Irish and French channel coasts, reflecting conservative trophic habits between these two places. Hepatic and renal Cd concentrations were significantly correlated to muscle delta(13)C and delta(15)N values while Hg, Zn and Cu did not. These results suggest that Cd accumulation is partly linked to the diet while other factors Such as age or body condition might explain Hg, Zn or Cu variability in marine mammals. Combined stable isotope and trace metal analyses appear to be useful tools for the study of marine mammal ecology. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

Sleep is thought to participate in the consolidation of recent memory traces. We tested this hypothesis in humans by using functional neuroimaging (functional magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography). First, following the training procedural visuo-motor learning task (pursuit task), total sleep deprivation on the first post-training night significantly deteriorates the gain in performance, which is usually observed after one complete night of sleep. In parallel, sleep deprivation hampers the changes in functional segregation and connectivity, which underpin the gain in performance usually observed in subjects allowed to sleep on the first post-training night. Second, following the training on an implicit memory task (probabilistic serial reaction time task), some brain areas are reactivated during rapid eye movement (REM) sleep on the first post-training night. The reactivation was shown to be related to the processing of high-level material and to be modulated by the amount of learning achieved during the training session. These changes in activity do not involve isolated brain areas but entire macroscopic cortico-subcortical networks. Taken together, the results suggest an off-line processing of recent memory traces during sleep. [less ▲]

En 1994, le Rwanda a connu des événements tragiques ayant débouché sur un démantèlement de l’appareil de l’état et sur une destruction massive du système de santé. Ce fut l’occasion pour les autorités de réformer le système de santé vers, entre autre, une plus grande décentralisation. L’objectif du présent travail est d’analyser au niveau macro-économique la manière dont les Autorités rwandaises ont organisé le financement de cette réforme sanitaire et comment elles ont développé les mécanismes alternatifs de financement communautaire entre 1995 et 2001. La méthodologie repose essentiellement sur l’analyse des données reprises dans le système d’information sanitaire de routine et sur des études spécifiques menées entre 1995 et 2001. Les résultats montrent que le Ministère de la Santé a bénéficié d’un appui international massif pour la reconstruction, d’une participation de la communauté au financement de ses soins de santé et d’une contribution croissante d’un budget alloué par le Gouvernement. Les résultats révèlent également que le souci de la cohérence entre politique nationale de santé et financement a été constant au cours de ces années. Les systèmes alternatifs de financement par la population ont rencontré des succès variables tant dans leur conception que leur application. Globalement, ces derniers ont néanmoins permis d’initier une réflexion sur l’éventualité d’une généralisation. Les performances globales du système de santé montrent une efficacité comparable à la moyenne africaine et une efficience réelle. En conclusion, les orientations futures devront tenir compte des ressources disponibles et des modalités d’organisation de l’Etat Rwandais. Les efforts consentis par le Ministère de la Santé du Rwanda pour reconstruire un système de santé cohérent, relativement équitable et accessible à toute la population permettent de dégager des options pouvant être étudiées dans d’autres contextes.

We herein report on our efforts to improve the mapping resolution of a QTL with major effect on milk yield and composition that was previously mapped to bovine chromosome 20. By using a denser chromosome 20 marker map and by exploiting linkage disequilibrium using two distinct approaches, we provide strong evidence that a chromosome segment including the gene coding for the growth hormone receptor accounts for at least part of the chromosome 20 QTL effect. By sequencing individuals with known QTL genotype, we identify an F to Y substitution in the transmembrane domain of the growth hormone receptor gene that is associated with a strong effect on milk yield and composition in the general population.

Based on the analysis of SHIP2+/- and SHIP2-/- mice showing that the lipid phophatase SHIP2 is an important negative regulator of the insulin pathway, we have suggested that the enzyme is a candidate gene for genetic predisposition to type 2 diabetes, and a potential therapeutic target for the same disease. Two years after, we propose to review these hypothesis in light of recent results from our laboratory, from international collaborations and from competitors in the field. [less ▲]
