The femoral-facial syndrome is usually sporadic and its aetiology remains unknown. Non-genetic factors as maternal diabetes mellitus have been associated. Reports of familial cases have otherwise suggested autosomal dominant inheritance. We report the 20 years clinical follow-up of a girl with femoral-facial syndrome diagnosed at birth. Recently, array CGH investigation identified a 1400 kb duplication at 9q31.1, including the gene SMC2, and a 343 kb deletion at 12q24.33 including the genes CHFR, ZNF26, ZNF140, ZNF10 and ZNF268. Moreover, the patient presents a Mayer-Rokitansky-Kuster-Hauser syndrome diagnosed at puberty. Femoral-facial syndrome and Mullerian agenesis may reflect different defects in the primary axial mesodermal development, being the consequences of same environmental or/and genetic factors during blastogenesis. Among these genetic factors, we suggest the possible involvement of the two copy number variants reported here [less ▲]

This essay sets out to examine “Prizes” and “Royal Icing” by Janet Frame with a view to reconciling the Edenic chora formed by children with the state of selflessness that critics often define as a post-mortem flux. We shall see, in the end, that Frame’s utopian condition of shared being is not to be located exclusively in ‘that’ world beyond disintegration, for it belongs to ‘this’ world of the living also.

Some facts and some figures, first of all. Wallonia must import 98% of its energy resources. The fossile fuel reserves are limited: one speaks 200 years for coal, 60 years for gas and uranium, 40 years for oil. And yet, our energy demand increases irremediably. Moreover, it takes part, for 85%, with our emissions of CO2, emissions which are largely responsible for the climate warming of planet. That is to decrease the dependancy of Wallonia, to save our invaluable natural resources of energy or to limit as much as possible climate warming, we are in the obligation to strongly reduce our consumption of energy. In 10 years, we must raise the challenge to obtain at least 20% of reduction in industry, 10% in the tertiary sector, and 10% in the residential one. Vis-a-vis these challenges, it is necessary for us, as of now, to engage deep changes and to start a true technological revolution in all the branches of industry consuming energy: in the industrial production and transport, in the tertiary sector, but more especially the residential one. For this reason, the design of our buildings has a considerable role to play. To change practices in and for its house will amplify the awakening of the greatest number of citizens. The booklet that you have between the hands addresses particularly to the architects, to the contractors, to the craftsmen of the building, to the teachers of the schools of architecture and the techniques of the building, with all those who are the originators and the realizers of creations and the restorations of private and public buildings. To reduce the consumption of energy for the heating of a building requires tools and techniques, specific and in constant improvement. Also, my administration entrusted the realization of this work to some specialists, to help the originators to integrate these energy requirements in the design of their buildings and the citizens into better using them.

BACKGROUND: Embryo implantation is a complex event involving apposition followed by adhesion of the blastocyst to the maternal endometrium, and finally invasion of this endometrium. Though implantation could occur in any human tissue, the endometrium is the only tissue where embryo implantation cannot occur except during a restricted period called the implantation window. During this window, the endometrium is highly receptive to the embryo. MATERIAL: and methods. We reviewed the literature concerning the different factors involved in improved endometrial receptivity and implantation. RESULTS: Maternal - embryo crosstalk is favored by the implantation window. Endometrial receptivity results from the acquisition of ligands or receptors facilitating apposition, then adhesion of the embryo, or from the loss of components preventing it. The molecular basis of the implantation window remains to be defined. CONCLUSION: Despite progress in assisted reproduction technologies, the lack of control of implantation remains a major obstacle to successful pregnancy. It is of prime importance to determine the characteristic features of a receptive endometrium and, among the many markers proposed by in vitro studies, to analyze in humans those demonstrated by knock-out experiments to play a crucial role in mice.

From many aspects, one can observe that, by contrast with other times and places, feral pigeons do not have a definite status in contemporary European cities. They seem to be perpetually crossing boundaries between different categories that people usually refer to in order to understand and engage with the world surrounding them. As a part of wildlife in an urban environment, feral pigeons elicit contrasted feelings amongst inhabitants of cities and question cultural distinctions such as domestic/wild, public/private, clean/dirt, etc. This research was a part of a multidisciplinary project aiming at evaluating both ecological and anthropological dimensions of the presence of feral pigeons in Paris. It will be argued that feral pigeons in cities could be viewed as a kind of symbolic disorder. Political measures, scientific interest and citizen behaviors towards them could therefore be understood as attempts to give the pigeons a definite status. This perspective could help improving the management of urban biodiversity by providing clues to integrate its ecological and cultural dimensions. [less ▲]

Dietary inclusion of fermentable carbohydrates (fCHO) is reported to reduce large intestinal formation of putatively toxic metabolites derived from fermentable proteins (fCP). However, the influence of diets high in fCP concentration on epithelial response and interaction with fCHO is still unclear. Thirty-two weaned piglets were fed 4 diets in a 2 3 2 factorial design with low fCP/low fCHO [14.5% crude protein (CP)/14.5% total dietary fiber (TDF)]; low fCP/high fCHO (14.8% CP/ 16.6% TDF); high fCP low fCHO (19.8% CP/14.5% TDF); and high fCP/high fCHO (20.1% CP/18.0% TDF) as dietary treatments. After 21–23 d, pigs were killed and colon digesta and tissue samples analyzed for indices of microbial ecology, tissue expression of genes for cell turnover, cytokines, mucus genes (MUC), and oxidative stress indices. Pig performance was unaffected by diet. fCP increased (P , 0.05) cell counts of clostridia in the Clostridium leptum group and total short and branched chain fatty acids, ammonia, putrescine, histamine, and spermidine concentrations, whereas high fCHO increased (P , 0.05) cell counts of clostridia in the C. leptum and C. coccoides groups, shifted the acetate to propionate ratio toward acetate (P , 0.05), and reduced ammonia and putrescine (P , 0.05). High dietary fCP increased (P , 0.05) expression of PCNA, IL1b, IL10, TGFb, MUC1, MUC2, and MUC20, irrespective of fCHO concentration. The ratio of glutathione:glutathione disulfide was reduced (P , 0.05) by fCP and the expression of glutathione transferase was reduced by fCHO (P , 0.05). In conclusion, fermentable fiber ameliorates fermentable protein-induced changes in most measures of luminal microbial ecology but not the mucosal response in the large intestine of pigs. [less ▲]
