In many plants, flowering is promoted by a long exposure to cold, a process known as ‘vernalisation’. In Arabidopsis, the vernalisation pathway was shown to promote flowering via the repression of the FLOWERING LOCUS C (FLC) gene, which encodes a repressor of flowering. As far as we know, the genetical control of flowering is conserved among Brassicaceae, and we reported elsewhere cloning of flowering times genes of the photoperiodic pathway in Sinapis alba, based on sequence similarity with Arabidopsis. However, little is known about vernalisation in Sinapis. We therefore undertook a physiological and molecular study of this process. Plants of Sinapis were grown in non inductive short days and vernalised at 7°C, at the seedling stage. Vernalisation was found to accelerate flowering and an increasing effect was observed for vernalisation treatments longer than 2 weeks. We cloned an FLC-like sequence (SaFLC) by screening a cDNA library, and used it as a probe to perform expression analyses. We observed that SaFLC was almost completely repressed after 1 week of vernalisation, but repression was stable only after 2 weeks, which is consistent with the fact that 2-week is the minimal duration of vernalisation that promotes flowering. Hence the molecular mechanisms of vernalisation seem to be conserved in Sinapis and Arabidopsis. [less ▲]

Herpesviruses characteristically persist in immune hosts as latent genomes, but to transmit infection they must reactivate and replicate lytically. The interaction between newly formed virions and pre-existing antibody is therefore likely to be a crucial determinant of viral fitness. Murine gammaherpesvirus-68 (MHV-68) behaves as a natural pathogen of conventional, inbred mice and consequently allows such interactions to be analysed experimentally in a relatively realistic setting. Here, monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) were derived from MHV-68-infected mice and all those recognizing infected-cell surfaces were tested for their capacity to neutralize MHV-68 virions. All of the neutralizing mAbs identified were specific for the viral glycoprotein H (gH)-gL heterodimer and required both gH and gL to reproduce their cognate epitopes. Based on antibody interference, there appeared to be two major neutralization epitopes on gH-gL. Analysis of a representative mAb indicated that it blocked infection at a post-binding step--either virion endocytosis or membrane fusion. [less ▲]

The purpose of this study was to determine whether baseline patients' self reported health-related quality of life (HRQOL) parameters could predict survival beyond key biomedical prognostic factors in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer. The analysis was conducted on 299 patients. HRQOL baseline scores were assessed using the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer, Quality of Life Questionnaire-Core30 (EORTC QLQ-C30). The Cox proportional hazards regression model was used for both univariate and multivariate analyses of survival. In addition, a bootstrap resampling technique was used to assess the stability of the outcomes. The final multivariate Cox regression model retained four variables as independent prognostic factors for survival: white blood cell (WBC) count with a hazard ratio (HR) of 1.961 (95% CI, 1.439-2.672; P<0.001), alkaline phosphatase with HR=1.509 (95% CI, 1.126-2.022; P=0.005), number of sites involved with HR=1.108 (95% CI, 1.024-1.198; P=0.01) and the patient's score on the social functioning scale with HR=0.991 (95% CI, 0.987-0.996; P<0.001) which translates into a 9% decrease in the patient's hazard of death for any 10 point increase. The independent prognostic importance of social functioning and the stability of the final Cox regression model were also confirmed by the additional bootstrap model averaging analysis, based on 1000 bootstrap-generated samples. The results suggest that social functioning, acts as a prognostic measure of survival beyond a number of previously known biomedical parameters. [less ▲]
