Immunity to Nippostrongylus brasiliensis reinfection requires pulmonary CD4+ T-cell responses. We examined whether secondary lymphoid recruited or pre-existing lung CD4+ T-cell populations coordinated this immunity. To do this, we blocked T-cell egress from lymph nodes using Fingolimod (FTY720). This impaired host ability to resolve a primary infection but did not change effectiveness of recall immunity. Associated with this effective recall immunity was the expansion and T helper type 2 polarization of a pre-existing pulmonary CD4+ T-cell population. LTbetaR-Ig (lymphotoxin beta-receptor fusion protein)-mediated disruption of stromal cell organization of immune cells did not disrupt this recall immunity, suggesting that protection was mediated by a pulmonary interstitial residing CD4+ T-cell population. Adoptive transfer of N. brasiliensis-experienced pulmonary CD4+ T cells from FTY720-treated wild-type or T-cell interleukin (IL)-4Ralpha-deficient mice demonstrated protection to be IL-4Ralpha dependent. These results show that pre-existing CD4+ T cells can drive effective recall immunity to N. brasiliensis infection independently of T-cell recruitment from secondary lymphoid organs.Mucosal Immunology advance online publication 19 June 2013; doi:10.1038/mi.2013.40.

Increases in eosinophil numbers are associated with infection and allergic diseases, including asthma, but there is also evidence that eosinophils contribute to homeostatic immune processes. In mice, the normal lung contains resident eosinophils (rEos), but their function has not been characterized. Here, we have reported that steady-state pulmonary rEos are IL-5–independent parenchymal Siglec-FintCD62L+CD101lo cells with a ring-shaped nucleus. During house dust mite–induced airway allergy, rEos features remained unchanged, and rEos were accompanied by recruited inflammatory eosinophils (iEos), which were defined as IL-5–dependent peribronchial Siglec-FhiCD62L–CD101hi cells with a segmented nucleus. Gene expression analyses revealed a more regulatory profile for rEos than for iEos, and correspondingly, mice lacking lung rEos showed an increase in Th2 cell responses to inhaled allergens. Such elevation of Th2 responses was linked to the ability of rEos, but not iEos, to inhibit the maturation, and therefore the pro-Th2 function, of allergen-loaded DCs. Finally, we determined that the parenchymal rEos found in nonasthmatic human lungs (Siglec-8+CD62L+IL-3Rlo cells) were phenotypically distinct from the iEos isolated from the sputa of eosinophilic asthmatic patients (Siglec-8+CD62LloIL-3Rhi cells), suggesting that our findings in mice are relevant to humans. In conclusion, our data define lung rEos as a distinct eosinophil subset with key homeostatic functions. [less ▲]

The domestic dog offers a unique opportunity to explore the genetic basis of disease, morphology and behaviour. Humans share many diseases with our canine companions, making dogs an ideal model organism for comparative disease genetics. Using newly developed resources, genome-wide association studies in dog breeds are proving to be exceptionally powerful. Towards this aim, veterinarians and geneticists from 12 European countries are collaborating to collect and analyse the DNA from large cohorts of dogs suffering from a range of carefully defined diseases of relevance to human health. This project, named LUPA, has already delivered considerable results. The consortium has collaborated to develop a new high density single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) array. Mutations for four monogenic diseases have been identified and the information has been utilised to find mutations in human patients. Several complex diseases have been mapped and fine mapping is underway. These findings should ultimately lead to a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying complex diseases in both humans and their best friend. [less ▲]

We present a strong case for a transiting hot Jupiter planet identified during a single-field transit survey toward the Lupus Galactic plane. The object, Lupus-TR-3b, transits a V=17.4 K1 V host star every 3.91405 days. Spectroscopy and stellar colors indicate a host star with effective temperature 5000 +/- 150 K, with a stellar mass and radius of 0.87 +/- 0.04 M[SUB]solar[/SUB] and 0.82 +/- 0.05 R[SUB]solar[/SUB], respectively. Limb-darkened transit fitting yields a companion radius of 0.89+/-0.07 R[SUB]J[/SUB] and an orbital inclination of 88.3[SUP]+1.3[/SUP][SUB]-0.8[/SUB] deg. Magellan 6.5 m MIKE radial velocity measurements reveal a 2.4 sigma K = 114 +/- 25 m s[SUP]-1[/SUP] sinusoidal variation in phase with the transit ephemeris. The resulting mass is 0.81 +/- 0.18 M[SUB]J[/SUB] and density 1.4 +/- 0.4 g cm[SUP]-3[/SUP]. Y-band PANIC image deconvolution reveals a V>=21 red neighbor 0.4[SUP]''[/SUP] away which, although highly unlikely, we cannot conclusively rule out as a blended binary with current data. However, blend simulations show that only the most unusual binary system can reproduce our observations. This object is very likely a planet, detected from a highly efficient observational strategy. Lupus-TR-3b constitutes the faintest ground-based detection to date, and one of the lowest mass hot Jupiters known. [less ▲]

This thesis is an anthropological inquiry into the emergence of urban soils as matters of concern in the worlds of soil scientists and other fields more traditionally involved with cities. City soils have typically been neglected in modern thinking about nature and urbanism. They have long been framed solely as a technical question which seemed to require no further pondering until – in the last two decades – they entered the scope of the soil sciences. This thesis draws on over 13 months of multi-locale fieldwork conducted in Paris and Lorraine with soil scientists, gardeners and foundation builders. Through the lens of soil-making practices, it seeks to elucidate the specificity of new forms of urban pedogenesis, including the growth of soils and the lives of the humans associated with them. Building on scholarship in anthropology, the soil sciences, science studies, and speculative philosophy, it follows how these actors learn to be affected in the material performance of different relations between people and soils. Occasionally turning to narrative to complement analysis and more traditional ethnography, each chapter pulls a different diffractive string from the mesh of urban soil matters, and follows where it leads in what Deleuze and Guattari call an ‘itinerant’ mode of research. As ways of knowing that emerge from soil construction are described, the question of what making soils does to knowing them becomes a central thread of the thesis. In this, it looks at how soils participate in apparatuses where they become ‘lures for feelings’ – affective interweavings in which worlds are experienced. The introduction sets the stage for the thesis, and explains how the fieldwork was conducted. It sets pointers for the rest of the work by explaining the attentive, yet critical posture it adopts towards scientific theories of soils. The thesis is then divided into two parts: the first part (chapters 1-4) presents a detailed consideration of the world being newly explored by urban soil scientists, and showcases key points of encounter between pedology, the environmental sciences and themes such as urban sprawl, ‘peak soil’, and ‘the Anthropocene’. It starts by problematizing the movement by which, in the 19th century, urban soils became ‘blackboxed’ when their hard sealing initiated a long standing separation between earth and sky. This is followed by an examination of the renewed interest towards urban soils in realms as diverse as city planning, waste management and hydraulics. The thesis then turns to exploring more specifically the impact of urban soils on soil science research in France. It describes how the new urban soil sciences invoke non-linear ecological dynamics, and how they question distinctions such as those between the living and the non-living, and between the human and the natural. In the face of this questioning, scientists started to experiment with urban soils by engaging directly in their construction through their ‘ecological engineering’. Rejecting separations between making and theory, these practices are understood by attending to soil scientist’s digging practices, described as ways of learning to be affected by soils and their liveliness. This part concludes with a study of the multispecies interactions entailed in soil ecologists’ attempts to ‘collaborate’ with earthworms and other soil organisms. An analysis of the modes of joint becoming of soils and humans at play in soil construction is developed by way of a reinterpretation of the soil sciences’ concept of pedogenesis. These ideas are developed in the second part of the thesis (chapters 5-7), which addresses practices of urban soil construction in the fields of urban gardening and foundation building, and introduces an art and anthropology experiment. It first presents the work of urban gardeners who develop their own understanding of city soils and botany, and attempt to grow knowledge, soils and community by adapting ancient rural practices of earth working to the reclamation of city interstices. It then introduces the work of foundation builders, and shows that far from entailing soils as inert matter that would be malleable at will, their work can be characterised as a play on equilibrium across interfaces of exchange. The thesis concludes with the presentation of an art, anthropology and soil science experiment in which the author participated. In this experiment fieldwork was re-interrogated by means of narrative speculation and installation making. This finally provides the grounds from which to draw methodological conclusions for an experimental anthropology, premised on the interweaving of imagination and practice. [less ▲]

Fertility in men requires normal testicular development, which is controlled by chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in utero and thereafter by luteinizing hormone (LH) and follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH). Some rare observations, such as, mutations in the luteinizing hormone subunit beta gene [2] have contributed substantially to our understanding of reproductive development and male infertility. In this editorial we summaryze current knowledge about beta LH mutations and polymorphism in men and discuss fertility issues. [less ▲]

Differential display analysis was carried out to find, in the rat prostate, genes that could be regulated by Luteinizing Hormone (LH), independently of the androgens. Hypophysectomized and castrated adult rats were treated with either LH, testosterone or saline. Regulated discrete bands have been eluted and reamplified. After Northern blotting, the levels of mRNA corresponding to 8 PCR fragments were significantly increased by LH treatment. None of these inserts were found to be induced by testosterone. One insert was subcloned, sequenced and identified as the ribosomial protein S 23. A competitive RT-PCR assay was carried out on the full length S 23 cDNA and confirmed that its mRNA levels were stimulated by LH but not by testosterone. These results strongly suggest that the LH membrane receptor, previously shown to be expressed in the rat prostate, has a physiological significance in this organ. Moreover, it appears that the effect of LH on the rat prostate are independent of the androgens. [less ▲]
