The exploits of Hercules, one of the most popular literary and artistic themes of the Renaissance, flourished particularly in tapestries, a major artistic genre of this period. Fine tapestries presenting this theme were produced by the best weaving workshops of the former Netherlands. The success of the theme in tapestry invites us to ponder on the special meaning given to it by the princes, the privileged recipients of these tapestries. There is no doubt that, more than any other hero, Hercules served as their model as he embodied the virtus heroica. We will delve deeper in the matter by focusing on the period between the middle of the fifteenth century (when the theme first appears in tapestries) and the 1560s. In addition to the exceptional quantity of preserved tapestries (over a 100!), the numerous references to the Herculean theme in ancient inventories and descriptions confirms its importance at the time and reveals the complexity of its iconography.

Our objective was to determine the seroprevalence of Hypoderma spp. and to develop a spatial model describing the risk surface of warble-fly infection in Belgian cattle herds (adjusting for herd size, herd type, local temperature, rainfall, relative air humidity and land-cover). This survey was carried out in 390 selected herds of all types (dairy, mixed and beef) from December 1997 to March 1998, which were included in a national infectious bovine rhinotracheitis and paratuberculosis (Johne's-disease) survey. All animals >24 months old were blood sampled and an ELISA was used on pooled serum samples (10 animals per pool). The herd seroprevalence was 48.7% (95% confidence interval: 43.6-53.8); positive herds were mainly in the south of the country and along the North Sea coast. The logistic multiple-regression model of herd-level seropositivity indicated that mixed-type and beef-cattle herds have more than four-fold and two-fold increases in the odds of being Hypoderma-positive, respectively, compared with dairy herds.

The aim of this study was to estimate the herd-test-day (HTD) effect on milk yield, fat and protein content, and methane (CH4) emissions of Walloon Holstein first-parity cows. A total of 412,520 test-day records and milk mid-infrared (MIR) spectra of 69,223 cows in 1,104 herds were included in the data set. The prediction equation developed by Vanlierde et al. (Abstract submitted to EAAP 2013; R² of cross-validation=0.70) was applied on the recorded spectral data to predict CH4 emissions (g/d). Daily CH4 emissions expressed in g/kg of milk were computed by dividing CH4 emissions (g/d) by daily milk yield of cows. Several bivariate (a CH4 trait with a production trait) random regression test-day models including HTD and classes of days in milk and age at calving as fixed effects and permanent environment and genetic as random effects were used. HTD solutions of studied traits obtained from these models were studied and presented large deviations (CV=17.54%, 8.93%, 4.68%, 15.51%, and 23.18% for milk yield, fat and protein content, MIR CH4 (g/d), and MIR CH4 (g/kg of milk), respectively) indicating differences among herds, especially for milk yield and CH4 traits. HTD means per month of milk yield and fat and protein contents presented similar patterns within year. The maximum of monthly HTD means corresponded to the spring (pastern release) for milk yield and to the winter for fat and protein contents. The minimum corresponded to the month of November for milk yield and to the summer for the other traits. For MIR CH4 (g/d), monthly HTD means showed similar patterns as fat and protein content within year. MIR CH4 (g/kg of milk) presented maximum values of monthly HTD means in November and minimum values in May. Finally, results of this study showed that HTD effects on milk production traits and on MIR CH4 emissions varied through herds and seasons. [less ▲]

Recently, interest in the neural correlates of self-recognition has grown. Most studies concentrate on self-face recognition. However, there is a lack of convergence as to precise neuroanatomical locations underlying self-face recognition. In addition, recognition of familiar persons from bodies has been relatively neglected. In the present study, cerebral activity while participants performed a task in which they had to indicate the real appearance of themselves and of a gender-matched close colleague among intact and altered pictures of faces and bodies was measured. The right frontal cortex and the insula were found to be the main regions specifically implicated in visual self-recognition compared with visual processing of other highly familiar persons. Moreover, the right anterior insula along with the right anterior cingulate seemed to play a role in the integration of information about oneself independently of the stimulus domain. The processing of self-related pictures was also compared to scrambled versions of these pictures. Results showed that different areas of the occipito-temporal cortex were more or less recruited depending on whether a face or a body was perceived, as it has already been reported by several recent studies. The implication of present findings for a general framework of person identification is discussed. [less ▲]

Hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy (HMSN) with autosomal recessive inheritance represents a genetically heterogeneous group of disorders with variable clinical, pathologic and electrophysiologic manifestations. A new variant of autosomal recessive HMSN, clinically defined by sensorimotor polyneuropathy associated with deafness and mental retardation, has recently been described. We report on the first autopsy case with this type of HMSN: a girl of non-consanguineous parents with a presumably autosomal recessive type of motor and sensory neuropathy clinically associated with deafness, mental retardation, and epilepsy. The autopsy showed complete absence of large myelinated fibers in peripheral motor and sensory nerves corresponding to a lack of large neurons in dorsal root ganglia and anterior horns of the spinal cord, moderate neurogenic muscle atrophy, and nearly complete absence of neurons in the dentate nucleus of the cerebellum. Molecular genetic analyses in our case revealed neither genetic alterations in the survival motor neuron gene nor in the PMP-22 gene. [less ▲]

In 1980, Schimke and King introduced the term hereditary urogenital adysplasia to describe recurrence of kidney and uterine malformations which had been observed in several families. They suggested an autosomal dominant inheritance with variable expressivity and penetrance. Now, 35 years later, research is focused towards understanding the underlying genetic causes of this condition. We review the embryonic development of Müllerian and Wolffian ducts and the genes that have been involved in uterine malformations, congenital anomalies of kidney and urinary tract and hereditary urogenital adysplasia in humans.

OBJECTIVE: Sex steroid concentrations in men are related to body composition and both are determined by genetic and environmental factors. This study investigates heritability estimates of sex steroid serum concentrations and body composition as well as the genetic and environmental components of their interrelation. PATIENTS: Six hundred and seventy-four men (25-45 years) were included in this study with 274 independent pairs of brothers. MEASUREMENTS: Body composition and regional fat mass estimates were determined using dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. Serum testosterone (T), SHBG, oestradiol (E(2)) and LH levels were determined by immunoassay; free T and E(2) levels were calculated. RESULTS: Both sex steroid hormone concentrations and indices of body composition exhibited significant heritability estimates. Among sex steroid hormones, T had the highest heritability (h(2) = 0.65), followed by free T (h(2) = 0.54). A heritability of 0.73 was observed for SHBG; a heritability estimate of 0.83 was obtained for body weight. Significant genetic correlations were found between whole body fat mass and serum T (rho(G) = -0.46), free T (rho(G) = -0.27) and SHBG (rho(G) = -0.48) concentrations. No genetic relationship was observed between total (F) E(2) or LH concentrations, respectively, and body composition. CONCLUSION: Both sex steroid serum levels and body composition are under strong genetic control. Their interrelation is in part underlied by a genetic correlation, indicative of the action of shared genes. [less ▲]

The degree to which genetic factors influence brain connectivity is beginning to be understood. Large-scale efforts are underway to map the profile of genetic effects in various brain regions. The NIH-funded Human Connectome Project (HCP) is providing data valuable for analyzing the degree of genetic influence underlying brain connectivity revealed by state-of-the-art neuroimaging methods. We calculated the heritability of the fractional anisotropy (FA) measure derived from diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) reconstruction in 481 HCP subjects (194/287 M/F) consisting of 57/60 pairs of mono- and dizygotic twins, and 246 siblings. FA measurements were derived using (Enhancing NeuroImaging Genetics through Meta-Analysis) ENIGMA DTI protocols and heritability estimates were calculated using the SOLAR-Eclipse imaging genetic analysis package. We compared heritability estimates derived from HCP data to those publicly available through the ENIGMA-DTI consortium, which were pooled together from five-family based studies across the US, Europe, and Australia. FA measurements from the HCP cohort for eleven major white matter tracts were highly heritable (h(2)=0.53-0.90, p<10(-5)), and were significantly correlated with the joint-analytical estimates from the ENIGMA cohort on the tract and voxel-wise levels. The similarity in regional heritability suggests that the additive genetic contribution to white matter microstructure is consistent across populations and imaging acquisition parameters. It also suggests that the overarching genetic influence provides an opportunity to define a common genetic search space for future gene-discovery studies. Uniquely, the measurements of additive genetic contribution performed in this study can be repeated using online genetic analysis tools provided by the HCP ConnectomeDB web application. [less ▲]
