A total of 678 individuals from 28 European bovine breeds were both phenotyped and analysed at the myostatin locus by the Single Strand Conformation Polymorphism (SSCP) method. Seven new mutations were identified which contribute to the high polymorphism (1 SNP every 100 bp) present in this small gene; twenty haplotypes were described and a genotyping method was set up using the Oligonucleotide Ligation Assay (OLA) method. Some haplotypes appeared to be exclusive to a particular breed; this was the case for 5 in the Charolaise (involving mutation Q204X) and 7 in the Maine-Anjou (involving mutation E226X). The relationships between the different haplotypes were studied, thus allowing to test the earlier hypothesis on the origin of muscular hypertrophy in Europe: muscular hypertrophy (namely m821 (del11)) was mainly spread in different waves from northern Europe milk purpose populations in most breeds; however, other mutations (mostly disruptive) arose in a single breed, were highly selected and have since scarcely evolved to other populations.

Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) are commonly used to capture variations between populations. Often genome-wide SNP data are pruned based on linkage disequilibrium (LD) patterns or small subsets of SNPs are selected (e.g. PCA-correlated SNPs) to reproduce the genomic structure of the complete data set. Identifying and differentiating between subpopulations using such a reduced set can become challenging, especially when similar geographic regions are involved or when spurious patterns are likely to exist. Although PCA-based methods can resolve structure, they cannot infer ancestry. On the other hand, the structure of haplotypes in unrelated individuals can reveal useful information about genetic ancestry. Notably, haplotype composition and the pattern of LD between markers may vary between larger populations but may also play a role within more confined geographic regions. In addition, iterative pruning principal component analysis (ipPCA) has been shown to be a powerful tool to cluster subpopulations based on SNP profiles. Despite the complexities that are associated with haplotype inference, we argue that added value can be obtained when the LD structure between SNPs is exploited in the search for relevant population strata. In this work, we propose to combine an LD-based novel haplotype encoding scheme with the ipPCA machinery to retrieve fine population substructures. The approach is compared to state-of-the-art methods in the context of population substructure and admixture analysis. [less ▲]

We herein describe the fine mapping of an imprinted QTL with major effect on muscle mass that was previously assigned to distal SSC2p in the pig. The proposed approach exploits linkage disequilibrium in combination with QTL genotyping by marker-assisted segregation analysis. By identifying a haplotype shared by all "Q" chromosomes, we map the QTL to an approximately 250-kb chromosome segment containing INS and IGF2 as the only known paternally expressed genes. This considerably reinforces the candidacy of these genes, justifying their detailed analysis. [less ▲]

Atypical myopathy is a specific disease of horses kept at pastures most of the day. The condition is distinguished by the acute and unpredictable nature of its appearance, its high fatality rate and its rapid evolution. Indeed, over 75% of affected horses die within 72 hours after presenting clinical signs resulting from the severe degeneration of different muscle groups involved in breathing, posture, or the heart muscle. There are fewer than ten years, this disease was unknown from the veterinary and equestrian field. More than a dozen European countries are now concerned by this specific disease of equines. Recently, atypical myopathy has also been recognised in the USA. Atypical myopathy does not show characteristics of a contagious disease but its occurrence is linked to specific environmental conditions and thus, it emerges in the form of an epizooty: several grazing horses are hit by the disease at the same time and in different regions or even in different European countries. The clinical outbreaks are reported mainly in autumn and spring. Occurrence of the clinical syndrome in a horse implies that appropriate circumstances to the onset of the atypical myopathy were present in the host and/or in its environment. Large European epidemiological investigations have identified those circumstances, thus defining risk factors. These factors are related to the host (e.g. host susceptibility due to age), timing (e.g. season), location (e.g. local geological and ecological factors) and other miscellaneous features (e.g. type of feed, climatic conditions, the use of the horse). This review describes management practices at the horse and pasture level in order to reduce the incidence of atypical myopathy in grazing horses. [less ▲]

Popular song sung by 166 french occasionnal singers. The participants sang the French version of the popular tune “Happy Birthday”, without a compulsory tonality, after production of two glissendi (a continuous glide from a low note to a high note and vice versa). The aim of these glissendi was to warm up the vocal organs, to verify the vocal capacity of the subjects and to encourage a lack of inhibition in front of the experimenter and the recording equipment. The sound recordings were made using a microphone (Sennheiser HS2) and a digital recorder (Marantz Professional Solid State Recorder PMD67). [less ▲]

Among acute phase proteins, haptoglobin is considered as the most interesting in cattle. Due to its early and marked increase in acute inflammation, it is useful for the diagnosis and prognosis of acute inflammation and for the evaluation of treatment. Physiological variations of its serum concentrations can be observed in the days following parturition. From very low or even undetectable concentrations, its serum levels can rise significantly during acute inflammation. Haptoglobin could improve the sanitary control of animals and the identification of pathologies even before clinical signs become apparent. It could also detect subclinical diseases and improve the sanitary control at the slaughterhouse, because haptoglobin has a good combination of specificity and sensitivity in such a context. At the herd scale, it could be used to evaluate the sanitary status in order to allocate it a quality label. [less ▲]

This paper presents a detailed analysis of Harbiye aqueduct (Hatay, Turkey). The region is situated at the junction of two major faults (East Anatolian fault and the Dead Sea fault) and is well known for his important historic seismicity. The aqueduct is located close to Antioch on the Orontes (known as Antakya). The city was founded in the third century BC. Harbiye aqueduct is characterized by different stages of building (Benjelloun et al., submitted). A phase is dated to Caligula period. After the 37 AD earthquake, the aqueduct was rebuilt. We noticed the presence of two dissociated travertine and a changing of masonry material. We also observed several damages and repair structures dating from Roman time. We assume that our observations are the results of one or more earthquakes. Since the construction of the aqueduct, historical seismic records mention 13 earthquakes that provoked severe damages in the city of Antioch (Guidoboni et al. 1994, Al-Tarazi, 1999, Över et al. 2002). The last one occurred in 1872 (M=7.2). In order to test our hypothesis, we modelled the structure of the aqueduct by using FineLg, a software developed at University of Liege. The seismic signals were chosen in the European Strong-motion database (Ambraseys et al., 2002) according the following criteria: a bedrock station (to avoid site effect), a strike-slip fault mechanism and a distance between the station and the epicenter around 20-30 km. The aqueduct is located at about 25 km of the Dead Sea Fault. We tested several magnitudes for the purpose of estimate the magnitude of the earthquake(s) which destroy(s) the studied aqueduct. Our results highlight the bond between the magnitude, the damage and the weakness area of this type of structure. [less ▲]

The harbor seal (Phoca vitulina) and the harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) from the North Sea have experienced major fluctuations these last decades due to habitat loss, prey fluctuation and pollution of the marine environment. Recently, development of monitoring programs and non-invasive sampling techniques, including seal catches in Germany allowed blood sampling together with measurements of blubber thickness, body mass, sex and body length. This approach is complementary to the study of stranded and by-caught individuals sampled during necropsies. Essential (Se, Zn, Cu, Fe) and non-essential elements (T-Hg, MeHg, Cd, Pb), perfluorinated organochemicals (PFCs) polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) were measured in blubber and in blood (for selected compounds) of stranded, by-caught and free-ranging individuals from Belgian and German coasts. In contrast to Cd and Pb, hepatic T-Hg can reach concentrations as high as 2.1 μg.g-1 dry weight but depended on several factors including position in the trophic chain (inferred from δ13C and δ15N values), age group and the body mass. This level has been shown to generate in vitro toxicity on harbor seal lymphocytes. Organic compound analysis (PFCs, PCBs, PBDEs) revealed widespread dispersion of contaminants in the marine environment with higher concentrations in seals compared to porpoises in agreement with the higher trophic position of the harbor seal. However, metabolization of these compounds differed between the two species, as revealed by the higher contribution of the persistent BDE-47 and lower chlorinated and non-persistent congeners (e.g. CB 52, CB95) in tissues of harbor porpoises. T-Hg, PFCs, PCBs and PBDEs were detected in calves confirming maternal transfer to offspring. These pollutants are strongly suspected to affect the immune and endocrine systems as well as vitamin A metabolism and this raises concern about exposure-related health effects, especially in younger individuals.

The thyroid plays an important role in development and is of primary importance in metabolism and heat loss for cetaceans, including the harbor porpoise (Phocoena phocoena). Several studies have demonstrated that environmental contaminants can alter various aspects of thyroid function in mammals and may contribute to various histologic changes. The present study completes the data set of a 2006 study by Das et al., by performing histological and immunohistologic investigations on thyroids of 36 harbor porpoises from Belgian and United Kingdom waters. The number and mean diameter of follicles (µm) and the relative proportion of follicular, connective, and vascular tissue (%) were quantified in the thyroid gland of each individual. Interfollicular fibrosis has been observed in these thyroid glands, and the collective findings support the hypothesis of an endocrine disruption of thyroid function through organochlorinated compounds. Our study aimed also to reveal potential relationships between thyroid morphometric data and metal levels (Cd, Fe, Zn, Cu, Se, and Hg) using multivariate statistical analysis. The multiple regressions revealed statistically significant relationships between trace elements (cadmium, selenium, and copper) and thyroid fibrosis. The largely negative relationships are interesting findings but do not support the hypothesis that these elements have an adverse effect on thyroid morphometry. Further research is needed to understand the nature of any relationship between organochlorine and trace element exposure and thyroid gland morphology and function in harbor porpoises. [less ▲]

The aim of this paper is to carry out a semantic analysis of the definitions proposed in the scientific literature and in legal texts to describe workplace victimization phenomena. Starting with the observation that there is a great diversity in how these phenomena are considered, the authors attempted to identify recurrences and differences between these various definitions. Three semantic poles were identified: the consequences for people and the environment, hostile behaviours, and the resources of the parties in which various components could be studied. Two questions promoting debate also emerged: the necessity for the author’s intention to talk about a victimization situation, and the place of conflict in harassment processes. Analysis of these definitions led to critical reflection about the problem of evaluation, diagnosis and the intervention relating to such situations. [less ▲]
