A useful method to express female fertility of the Walloon dairy cattle using direct and indirect female fertility information was considered. Data were based on results of the genetic evaluation of pregnancy rate for 606,328 Holstein cows and on INTERBULL proofs of female fertility for 88,496 bulls. A direct female fertility index (DFF), using INTERBULL proofs, was developed from results of a principal component analysis carried out on 6 published foreign female fertility indexes. An indirect female fertility index (IFF) was also developed from ten other traits evaluated in Walloon Region. Theory of selection index was used to combine DFF and IFF in a global index called combined female fertility index (CFF). This index allowed young bulls to have better reliabilities with an average increase of 12% leading to extra 4,019 of publishable bulls for female fertility. [less ▲]

The neural mechanisms controlling sexual behavior are sexually differentiated by the perinatal actions of sex steroid hormones. We recently observed using female mice deficient in alpha-fetoprotein (AFP-KO) and which lack the protective actions of AFP against maternal estradiol, that exposure to prenatal estradiol completely defeminized the potential to show lordosis behavior in adulthood. Furthermore, AFP-KO females failed to show any male-directed mate preferences following treatment with estradiol and progesterone, indicating a reduced sexual motivation to seek out the male. In the present study, we asked whether neural responses to male- and female-derived odors are also affected in AFP-KO female mice. Therefore, we compared patterns of Fos, the protein product of the immediate early gene, c-fos, commonly used as a marker of neuronal activation, between wild-type (WT) and AFP-KO female mice following exposure to male or estrous female urine. We also tested WT males to confirm the previously observed sex differences in neural responses to male urinary odors. Interestingly, AFP-KO females showed normal, female-like Fos responses, i.e. exposure to urinary odors from male but not estrous female mice induced equivalent levels of Fos protein in the accessory olfactory pathways (e.g. the medial part of the preoptic nucleus, the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis, the amygdala, and the lateral part of the ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus) as well as in the main olfactory pathways (e.g. the piriform cortex and the anterior cortical amygdaloid nucleus), as WT females. By contrast, WT males did not show any significant induction of Fos protein in these brain areas upon exposure to either male or estrous female urinary odors. These results thus suggest that prenatal estradiol is not involved in the sexual differentiation of neural Fos responses to male-derived odors. [less ▲]

Natural hormones and some synthetic chemicals spread into our surrounding environment share the capacity to interact with hormone action and metabolism. Exposure to such compounds can cause a variety of developmental and reproductive detrimental abnormalities in wildlife species and, potentially, in human. Many experimental and epidemiological data have reported that exposure of the developing fetus or neonate to environmentally relevant concentrations of some among these endocrine disrupters induces morphological, biochemical and/or physiological disorders in brain and reproductive organs, by interfering with the hormone actions. The impact of such exposures on the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis and subsequent sexual maturation is the subject of the present review. We will highlight epidemiological human studies and the effects of early exposure during gestational, perinatal or postnatal life in female rodents. (c) 2006 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

Parlée ou chantée, notre voix révèle qui nous sommes. Elle participe à notre identité et véhicule nos émotions (ref. Revis. J). Dans cet exposé, nous présenterons la voix du point de vue du genre. En effet, l’Unité Logopédie de la Voix (www.logopedie-voix.be) s’intéresse entre autres à la féminisation vocale chez les personnes transidentitaires, en processus de changement de genre. Ces personnes ne s’identifiant pas au sexe et au genre qui leur ont été attribués à la naissance, elles éprouvent un désir profond de vivre comme une personne du sexe opposé à leur sexe biologique. Lors du processus de transition où ont lieu les transformations nécessaires au changement de genre, la logopédie a pour but d’améliorer la cohérence entre l’apparence de la personne et sa voix. Ainsi, notre recherche se focalise sur ce qui distingue la voix féminine de la voix masculine. Nous visons à développer des stratégies de féminisation vocale, portant sur des paramètres tels que la fréquence fondamentale de la voix (grave ou aigüe), les contours intonatifs, le niveau d’amplitude de certains formants, le débit de parole, son rythme, ou encore le vocabulaire choisi. Féminiser une voix, c’est chercher à comprendre ce qui permet d’en identifier le genre, mais également participer à la construction de l’identité de la personne à part entière. [less ▲]

Cardiovascular diseases represent the major cause of death in women. If women are early in life relatively protected by their hormones, after the menopause heart disease and stroke become their greatest health threat. Altogether one in three women will die of cardiovascular disease whereas only one in twenty-two will die of breast cancer. The risk factors for cardiovascular diseases are similar in both sexes. It should be noted however that the impact of diabetes on the development of coronary artery disease is markedly higher in woman than in man. In woman the first presenting symptom of coronary artery disease frequently is angina pectoris. In man it is more often an acute myocardial infarction whether it be symptomatic or silent. The various non invasive techniques used for the diagnosis of coronary artery disease may yield results that pose very difficult problems of differential diagnosis in women. Several studies indicate that in the past, probably because of the ignorance by the public and, perhaps, the medical profession of the high prevalence of cardiovascular and coronary artery diseases in women, the latter have not always received an optimal treatment when they suffered an acute ischemic attack. But, in this decade, they have been dramatic changes in the patents of clinical practice related to coronary heart disease in women. Statistical investigations however indicate that thrombolytic therapy appears less efficacious in women than in men whereas beta-blockers administered early in acute MI are of remarkable efficacy in women. It seems generally agreed that the results of revascularization by coronary artery bypass surgery are poorer in women than in men both in terms of operative mortality and morbidity. Initially, the same pessimism was reported for PTCA. However, recent results allow a much more optimistic view. [less ▲]
