BACKGROUND: Although essential, androgens alone are not sufficient to induce normal growth and functionality of the prostate. Nonandrogenic hormones must also be involved in the proliferation of the prostate cancer cells which do not respond to antiandrogenic therapy and which thus become androgen-independent. Prolactin, but also growth hormone and luteinizing hormone, are potentially able to act on both normal and abnormal prostatic cells. METHODS: In this review we summarize data from the literature concerning the physiological and pathological implications of prolactin, growth hormone, and luteinizing hormone on the prostate. RESULTS: In rodent prostates, prolactin and growth hormone can induce a variety of effects independently of androgens (e.g., transactivation of certain genes, or synthesis of the major secretion products). Moreover, hyperprolactinemia is responsible for inflammation and dysplasia of the gland, while growth hormone promotes the development of prostate tumors in vivo in the mouse and rat. Growth hormone acts on the gland directly, through prostatic growth hormone receptors, and/or indirectly via the stimulation of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) synthesis in the liver. Luteinizing hormone receptor is expressed in rat and human prostates. Luteinizing hormone increases the amount of various transcripts in the rat prostate through an androgen-independent pathway. CONCLUSIONS: Prolactin, growth hormone, and luteinizing hormone, alone or synergistically with androgens, play physiologically significant roles in the normal prostate. The involvement of these hormones in the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia and prostatic carcinoma is an issue that needs to be addressed. [less ▲]

Jasmonic acid (JA) and salicylic acid (SA) are important phytohormones for activating plant defense responses when plants suffer from mechanical damage or pest infestation. In response to plant defense responses, insects usually increase the detoxification enzyme activity or secrete some saliva proteins into plants to modulate host cell processes to promote their adaptation. In this study, we used real-time qPCR to detect the relative gene expression of detoxification enzyme named glutathione S-transferases (sigma GST) and salivary gland-specific protein C002 in Myzus persicae after feeding with 5mM JA or 10mM SA through artificial diet. The results showed that the relative expression of sigma GST and C002 in M. persicae increased significantly after JA and SA treatments. The results revealed that M. persicae can use JA and SA as cues to up-regulate gene expression of related detoxification enzyme and saliva protein. Our results provided new insights into the research on the mechanism of M. persicae adaptation to host plant resistance. [less ▲]

Many Plant Growth-Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) are able to enhance root growth, mineral availability, and nutrient use efficiency of crops. The aim of this project is to screen commercially available PGPR formulations and lab strains to increase wheat growth and yield in combination with an optimized nitrogen (N) fertilizer application scheme. This could lead to a significant reduction of N fertilizer application without affecting the subsequent grain yields. The screened products collection includes (1) Mix1 (a mix of Azospirillum sp., Azorhizobium sp., and Azoarcus sp.), (2) Mix2 (a mix of Mix1 complemented with two strains of phosphorus-solubilizing Bacillus sp.), (3) Bacillus amyloliquefaciens a, (4) B. subtilis, and (5) B. amyloliquefaciens b. These products were screened under greenhouse and field conditions in 2014 by using spring and winter wheat varieties, respectively. Under greenhouse conditions, there was a significant increase in root dry weight and in root per shoot ratio of plants inoculated with Mix1. Under field conditions, the interaction between PGPR inoculation and different N fertilizer doses was assessed. The grain yield was negatively impacted by low N fertilizer applications. Under such conditions, the inoculation of the wheat rhizosphere with B. subtilis increased the grain yield by 15% relative to the water control. However, in the field trial, the variability between plot replicates was high and lead to non-significant results. Based on these results, modified screening strategies for PGPR selection were set up for the next trials. [less ▲]

A study was conducted to investigate the influence of planting methods and tuber weight on growth and yield of local yam cultivars obtained by the minisett technique from white yam (D. rotundata) in Gabon. Trials were carried out in 2014 and 2015 at the experimental ground of the Higher National Institute of Agronomy and Biotechnology, under natural conditions of lightness, temperature and relative humidity. Twenty- four weeks old mini tubers obtained from local cultivar MVA of D. rotundata were harvested, weighed and categorized ( 40-80 g; 100-150 g; 200-300 g), and three planting methods (horizontal, oblique and vertical), arranged in ridges constituted the main factors. The experiment was laid out in Randomized Completely Block Design with eighteen treatments and two replications. Data pertaining to sprouting were recorded for 30, 60, 90 and 180 DAP, for tuber length (cm), tuber weight (Kg) and number of tubers per plant 270 DAP. Significant differences among tuber weight in all variables tested were observed. The larger tubers had better sprouting ability than the rest of the tuber weight. The methods of planting had no effects on yield and its components but they affect the depth and spread of tubers. Vertical planting produced deeper but more compactly arranged tubers while horizontal planting produced tubers which were shallower but more widespread. Slanting was intermediate for both depth and spread. The number and weight of tubers obtained from mini tubers planted out according to slanting method were significantly different (P< 0.05) from other planting methods. The production of seedlings from mini tuber is an improvement of traditional production of seed yam. Mini tubers must have at least 100-300 g and they should be planted slanting or vertically.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) contains growth factors involved in the tissular healing process. The aim of the study was to determine if an injection of PRP could improve the healing of sectioned Achilles tendons of rats. After surgery, rats received an injection of PRP (n=60) or a physiological solution (n=60) in situ. After 5, 15 and 30 days, 20 rats of both groups were euthanized and 15 collected tendons were submitted to a biomechanical test using cryo-jaws before performing transcriptomic analyses. Histological and biochemical analyses were performed on the 5 remaining tendons in each group. Tendons in the PRP group were more resistant to rupture at 15 and 30 days. The mechanical stress was significantly increased in tendons of the PRP group at day 30. Histological analysis showed a precocious deposition of fibrillar collagen at day 5 confirmed by a biochemical measurement. The expression of tenomodulin was significantly higher at day 5. The mRNA level of type III collage, matrix metalloproteinase 2, 3 and 9 was similar in the 2 groups at all time points whereas type I collagen was significantly increased at day 30 in the PRP group. In conclusion, an injection of PRP in sectioned rat Achilles tendon influences the early phase of tendons healing and results in an ultimate stronger mechanical resistance. [less ▲]

Introduction: Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) contains lot of growth factors which could enhance the healing process of different tissues. We aimed to determine if a single injection of PRP could improve the cicatrisation of ruptured Achilles tendons of rats. Material and Methods: A 5mm defect was surgically made in the Achilles tendon of 120 rats. A few hours after surgery, 45 rats received a PRP or PBS injection in situ. After 5, 15 and 30 days, 20 rats of both groups were euthanized and 15 collected tendons were immediately submitted to a biomechanical tensile strength test until rupture using a “cryo-jaw” device. After, theses samples were used for transcriptomic analyses. Histological and biochemical analyses were performed on the five remained tendons in each group. Results: Tendons in the PRP group were more resistant to rupture at 15 and 30 days than those in the control group. The transverse area of tendons in the PRP group was significantly higher at day 5 and 15. The constraint was significantly increased in tendons of the PRP group in the late phase of the healing (day 30). Histological and immunohistological analysis showed an increased staining for fibrillar collagen at day 5 confirmed by a biochemical analysis showing an increased collagen concentration in the callus. The expression of tenomodulin, a tenocyte differentiation marker, was significantly higher in the PRP-treated tendons at day 5. No significant difference in terms of mRNA for type III collagen and matrix metalloproteinase 9 was observed at any time between the 2 groups. Conclusion: A single injection of PRP in sectioned Achilles tendon of rats few hours after surgery influences the early phase of tendons healing, resulting in an ultimate stronger mechanical resistance.

The control of protein synthesis during maturation in oocytes is mainly exerted through cytoplasmic polyadenylation of stored mRNAs. We first analyzed the polyadenylation status of cyclins A2 and B1 during in vitro maturation (IVM) of bovine oocytes, using Rapid Amplification of cDNA Ends-Polyadenylation Technique (RACE-PAT). An inconstant elongation of the poly(A) tail was observed for cyclin A2 transcripts after maturation, while a constant lengthening was observed for cyclin B1, occurring during the first 12 hr of incubation. We then evaluated the effects of the polyadenylation inhibitor 3'-deoxyadenosine (3'-dA), on polyadenylation and nuclear maturation. The presence of 0.02 mM 3'-dA during the whole incubation period or from 6 hr after its beginning completely prevented meiosis progression in 100% of the oocytes. Polyadenylation of cyclin B1 was also completely prevented when 3'-dA was added at 0 hr, and greatly reduced when added at 6 hr. When 3'-dA was added at 12 hr, around metaphase I (MI), 46.9% of the oocytes have reached metaphase II (MII, vs. 78.8% in the control group) at 24 hr. The use of the same concentration of 3'-deoxyguanosine (3'-dG), that impairs transcription but not polyadenylation, did not affect cyclins polyadenylation, nor nuclear maturation, whatever was the timing of addition. These results suggest that the polyadenylation of cyclin B1 could be related to the first peak of activity of MPF, occurring around MI (10-12 hr after the onset of the maturation period). They also show that, in our culture conditions, inhibition of polyadenylation prevents meiosis progression, especially up to the MI stage, while inhibition of transcription does not. [less ▲]

Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) are organochlorinated micropollutants ubiquitously distributed in the environment. They are known to be strong inducers of hepatic monooxygenases in fish. This can adversely affect reproduction by increasing steroid metabolism. In this work, adult barbels were contaminated with food containing Aroclor 1260, a commercial PCB mixture from Monsanto, at environmentally relevant concentrations. A significant increase in cytochrome P450 was observed, and two particularly sensitive enzymes, ethoxyresorufin o-deethylase (EROD) and ethoxycoumarin o-deethylase (ECOD), were strongly induced. Electron microscopy revealed alterations in liver ultrastructure in contaminated fish, principally an increase in the number of cisternae of the rough endoplasmic reticulum, drastic glycogen depletion, dissolution of mitochondrial contents, and appearance of myelin figures. Contamination was also studied in relation to reproductive success in a hatchery. Contaminated males displayed no alteration in milt quality, but PCBs did alter female reproductive parameters. Total mortality of eggs and larvae increased significantly with the level of PCBs in the eggs. The most highly contaminated fish did not even spawn. All the adverse effects recorded here tended to be reversible when the intoxication ended, sometimes after only a 1-year detoxication period. [less ▲]

Studies in the laboratory have shown that a number of synthetic and natural chemicals can interfere with the endocrine system in fish. Among them, organic compounds such as pesticides and polychlorobiphenyls (PCBs) are well described endocrine disrupters. Of particular interest are effects on thyroid function, but data on effects of PCB exposure on these hormones and related metabolism has been lacking. We propose here a thorough approach to assess effects of these compounds on the thyroid function of European sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax). An experimental exposure of sea bass to commercial PCB mixtures has been designed to understand underlying toxicity mechanisms and effects on the thyroid system. After 120 days of exposure, muscular thyroid hormone concentrations and the main metabolic pathways for thyroid hormones (deiodination, glucuronidation and sulfatation) were assessed. Exposure to environmental relevant doses of PCB (from 0.3 to 0.9 ppm [7 ICES PCB]). alters hepatic T4 outer ring deiodinase and T4 sulfatation whereas T4 glucuronidation was not affected. Owing to the extensive autoregulatory feedback at both central and peripheral levels, the thyroid hormone concentrations were preserved despite the PCB induced changes in thyroid hormone dynamics. At 10 times higher concentrations (10 ppm [7 ICES PCB]). an important depression of muscular T3 and T4 levels could be observed which are apparently caused by other mechanisms than metabolic pathways. Further analysis is required to evaluate thyroid gland function and secretion. These results support the observations made in our field study in wild sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) from coastal regions near several important European rivers mouths. [less ▲]

Polychlorobiphenyls (PCBs), polybromodiphenylethers (PBDEs) and organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) such as dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) and hexachlorobenzene (HCB) are considered to be endocrine disruptors in laboratory and wild animals. This study investigated whether these compounds and their hydroxylated metabolites (HO-PCBs and HO-PBDEs) may affect the homeostasis of vitamin A, a dietary hormone, in the blubber and serum of twenty lactating grey seals sampled at early and late lactation on the Isle of May, Scotland. The effect of naturally produced compounds such as the methoxylated (MeO)-PBDEs was also examined. Vitamin A levels in inner blubber (37 ± 9 µg/g wet weight (ww) and 92 ± 32 µg/g ww at early and late lactation, respectively) and serum (408 ± 143 ng/ml and 390 ± 98 ng/ml at early and late lactation, respectively) appeared to be positively related to ΣPCBs, ΣPBDEs and several individual PCB and PBDE congeners in inner blubber and serum. These findings may suggest an enhanced mobilisation of hepatic retinoid stores and a redistribution in the blubber, a storage site for vitamin A in marine mammals, before the onset of lactation. We also reported that serum concentrations of ΣHO-PCBs and 4-OH-CB107 tended to increase circulating vitamin A levels. Although the direction of the relationships may sometimes differ from those reported in the literature, our results are in agreement with previous findings highlighting a disruption of vitamin A homeostasis in the blubber and bloodstream following exposure to environmental pollutants. Previous studies have shown an interesting parallelism between the mobilisation and transfer of vitamin A and those of PCBs in lactating grey seals, contrary to other lipophilic molecules such as vitamin E (Debier et al. 2004; Vanden Berghe et al. 2010). The fact that vitamin A and PCBs appeared to share common mechanisms during this particular physiological state in grey seals (lactation coupled to a total fasting) may also play a role in the different relationships observed between vitamin A and lipophilic pollutants.

OBJECTIVE: To assess if positive end-expiratory pressure (PEEP) titration improves gas exchange and respiratory mechanics, without hemodynamic impairment in horses during anesthesia. DESIGN: Prospective, randomized study. ANIMALS: Thirteen isoflurane-anesthetized healthy horses. METHODS: After 60 minutes of anesthesia with spontaneous breathing, mechanical ventilation was initiated with an inspiratory-expiratory ratio of 1:2, PEEP of 5 cmH2O, tidal volume of 10-20 mL kg(-1) and respiratory rate adjusted to maintain normocapnia. Constant PEEP of 5 cmH2O was continued (control group; n = 6) or titrated (PEEP group; n = 7) by increasing and decreasing PEEP from 5 to 20 cmH2O at 15-minute intervals. The horses were instrumented with an arterial catheter to measure blood pressure and allow collection of blood for pH and blood gas analysis and a Swan-Ganz catheter for measurement of cardiac output (CO) using thermodilution. Cardiopulmonary assessment was recorded before PEEP titration and after 15 minutes at each PEEP value. RESULTS: In the PEEP group, static compliance (range) (Cst 278-463 mL cmH2O(-1)) was significantly higher and the shunt fraction (Q.s/Q.t 7-20%) and the alveolar-arterial oxygen difference [P(A-a)O2 95-325 mmHg] were significantly lower than in the control group [Cst of 246-290 mL cmH2O(-1), Q.s/Q.t of 16-19%, P(A-a)O2 of 253-310 mmHg; p < 0.05]. CO (mean +/- SEM) was lower in the PEEP group (23 +/- 2 L minute(-1)) at 20 cmH2O PEEP than in the control group (26 +/- 4 L minute(-1), p < 0.05), with no significant changes in heart rate, blood pressure or central venous pressure. CONCLUSIONS: PEEP titration significantly improved gas exchange and lung compliance, with a small decrease in CO at the highest PEEP level. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Gas exchange and respiratory mechanics impairment during inhalation anesthesia can be treated using PEEP titration from 5 to 20 cmH2O, without clinically important hemodynamic effects in healthy horses.

Background: Reliable evaluation of patients with unresponsive wakefulness syndrome (UWS) or in a minimally conscious state (MCS) remains a major challenge. It has been suggested that the expression of residual cerebral function could be improved by allowing patients to listen to their favourite music. However, the potential effect of music on behavioural responsiveness, as well as the effect of preferred stimuli in other sensory modalities (e.g. olfaction), remain poorly understood. Objective: The aim of our study was to investigate the effect of sensory modality (auditory versus olfactory) and preference (preferred versus neutral) of the test stimuli on patients’ subsequent performance on the Coma Recovery Scale-Revised (CRS-R). Research design: Within-subject design because of inter-individual differences between patients. Methods and procedures: We studied four items from the CRS-R (visual pursuit using a mirror, auditory localization of the own name and two movements to command) in 13 patients (7 MCS; 6 UWS). Main outcomes and results: Auditory stimuli triggered higher responsiveness compared to olfactory stimuli, and preferred stimuli were followed by higher scores than did neutral stimuli. Conclusions: Findings suggest that preferred auditory stimuli at the bedside contribute to the expression of residual function and could improve the diagnostic assessment. [less ▲]
