A conceivable strategy in cell and gene therapy is the use of adult stem cells isolated from bone marrow. We defined the optimal conditions for the culture of human and murine mesenchymal stem cells (hMSC and mMSC). We observed that the MSC of both species had a special morphology thanks to which it was possible to isolate them in flow cytometry on the basis of the size and granulosity parameter only. We analyzed the MSC phenotype by flow cytometry and observed that the hMSC were CD31-, CD34-, CD45, CD80- and HLA-DR- while they expressed CD73, CD90, CD105 and HLA-1 antigens. mMSC phenotype was CD34-, CD45-, CD11b-, CD106+ and Sca-1+. We also wanted to determine the frequency in progenitors among the mMSC amplified in vitro. To do so, we first assessed the enrichment in CFU-F (Colony-Forming Units – Fibroblast) progenitors. This method consisted in a secondary culture in liquid medium optimized for the development of colonies of mesenchymal origin. We were able to observe an increase of the CFU-F during the MSC passages. Then, we developed a method in order to assess the progenitors frequency by culturing MSC at limiting dilutions (CFUF-IC, Colony-Forming Units Fibroblast-Initiating cells). Once again, we were able to notice that the frequency in progenitors increased during the successive passages. The ratio between the number of CFU-F and the frequency in progenitors amounted to ± 10. We also performed differentiation assays. We were able to differentiate the mMSC in fat cells, chondrocytes and osteoblasts. Finally, we developed a model of left coronary artery ligature in mice as well as immunohistochemical markers showing the antigens CD31, -actinin and connexin 43. With the intent to inject various types of grafts in this animal model, we also studied the cell cycle of the stem cells by Hoechst staining. Fluorescence analysis of mMSC isolated from EGFP transgenic mice revealed that their fluorescence increased from ± 30% in marrow to more than 90% for the mMSC isolated and amplified via an in vitro culture.

Stable carbon and nitrogen isotopes (delta(13)C and delta(15)N) and trace metals (Cd, Zn, Cu, Fe, Se, and Hg) were analysed in the tissues of 46 harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena relicta) caught in fishing nets along the Ukrainian coasts between 1997 and 1998. Mean delta(13)C values differed significantly between male and female harbour porpoises suggesting a trophic segregation between sexes with a more coastal distribution for females at least during their gestation and nursing periods. Hepatic Hg was correlated to delta(13)C measurements, reflecting a different exposure linked to coastal vs offshore feeding habitats. A geographical comparison with existing data from other regions showed general low levels of Hg, Cd, Cu and Zn in the tissues of harbour porpoises from the Black Sea compared to other Atlantic and North Sea areas.

A 4-year experiment has been conducted on finishing Belgian Blue cull cows of double-muscled type in order to study the effects of diets containing adequate levels of metabolizable protein, but either normal (NENP), low (LENP) or medium (MENP) levels of metabolizable energy, on animal performance, carcass and meat characteristics, and plasma metabolites and hormones. The LENP diet was offered during the whole (LENP group) or second half of the finishing (NENP-LENP groups), and the MENP diet during the whole finishing (MENP group). The degree of fatness required for the slaughter of animals from NENP groups was close to 4.5 (scale from 0 (very lean) to 5 (very fat)). In each underfed group, the slaughter of the animals was synchronized to that of NENP cows, by degressive degree of fatness. The same duration of finishing was thus obtained for all groups. The experimental feeding strategies reduced the amounts of fat deposited in the carcass and the meat while muscle deposition was remarkably preserved. The proportions of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids in intramuscular fat were also decreased while their proportions increased in plasma free fatty acids. Plasma insulin levels were also reduced and those of IGF-1 were, surprisingly, maintained. The low energy diet promoted thus the settlement of a discrete lipolytic state while high levels of IGF-1 preserved muscle deposition. This feeding strategy should be evaluated in other breeds of cattle. [less ▲]

The bovine species is highly susceptible to respiratory dis-eases. A previous experiment has shown that Belgian Blue and White calves have lower spiro-metric variables than Holstein calves. The first aim of this study was to measure the spirometric variables (peak inspiratory flow, peak expiratory flow, maximal tidal volume, maximal ventilation in 15 seconds and ventilatory reserve) of 18 crossed Belgian Blue x Holstein calves and of 32 Dual purpose calves by the lobelin test and to compare them with 19 Holstein calves and 22 Belgian Blue and White calves. The second aim was to test the correlation between some mor-phometrical parameters (chest girth, thoracic width, thoracic length, thoracic height, thoracic section and costal angle) and those spirometric variables. The spirometric variables of the crossed calves and of the Dual purpose calves are situated between the ones of the Belgian Blue and White and of the Holstein. There is a positive sig-nificant correlation between these parameters and the spirometric variables. The higher cor-relation is obtained with the chest girth. All these parameters are easier and quicker measura-ble, and at lower cost than the spirometric variables [less ▲]

Dans le cadre d'une étude financée par le Ministère de l'Agriculture et de la Ruralité pour la Région wallonne, une enquête a été réalisée auprès de propriétaires privés de bois et forêts situés en Région wallonne. Les objectifs de cette enquête étaient de : - compléter les informations fournies par l'Inventaire Permanent des Ressources Forestières de Wallonie en récoltant des informations sur le morcellement et la composition des propriétés forestières privées wallonnes ; - tenter de caractériser les conditions actuelles de gestion des propriétés forestières privées ; - identifier les besoins d’informations et la nature des différents problèmes rencontrés par les propriétaires dans la gestion de leur patrimoine. Les résultats de cette enquête seront présentés en deux parties. Le présent article qui correspond à la première partie expose tout d’abord la méthodologie de l’enquête. Il s’intéresse ensuite à la caractérisation des propriétés forestières privées de Wallonie, notamment au travers de l’étude du morcellement mais surtout en cherchant à identifier quelles sont les fonctions que les propriétaires associent à leur forêt. Quelques brèves conclusions sont enfin présentées. Le second article traitera quant à lui des résultat relatifs à la gestion de la forêt privée et aux principales préoccupations des propriétaires.

Objective-To determine radiographic, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT), and rhinoscopic features of nasal aspergillosis in dogs. Design-Prospective study. Animals-15 client-owned dogs. Procedure-All dogs had clinical signs of chronic nasal disease; the diagnosis of nasal aspergillosis was made on the basis of positive results for at least 2 diagnostic tests (serology, cytology, histology, or fungal culture) and detection of typical intrasinusal and intranasal fungal colonies and turbinate destruction via rhinoscopy. Radiography, MBI, and CT were performed under general anesthesia. Rhinoscopy was repeated to evaluate lesions and initiate treatment. Findings of radiography, MRI, CT and rhinoscopy were compared. Results-MRI and CT revealed lesions suggestive of nasal aspergillosis more frequently than did radiography. Computed tomography was the best technique for detection of cortical bone lesions; the nature of abnormal soft tissue, however, could not be identified. Magnetic resonance imaging allowed evaluation of lesions of the frontal bone and was especially useful for differentiating between a thickened mucosa and secretions or fungal colonies;, however, fungal colonies could not be differentiated from secretions. Rhinoscopy allowed identification of the nature of intranasal and intrasinusal soft tissue but was not as useful as CT and MRI for defining the extent of lesions and provided no information regarding bone lesions. Conclusions and Clinical Relevance-The value of CT and MBI for diagnosis of nasal aspergillosis was similar and greater than that of radiography. Rhinoscopy is necessary because it is the only technique that allows direct visualization of fungal colonies. [less ▲]
