In vitro release and content of GnRH in mediobasal hypothalamic slices are reduced by ovariectomy of female ferrets but are not affected by castration of male ferrets in breeding condition. The aim of the present study was to determine whether this sex difference reflects a sexually dimorphic effect of gonadal steroids on mediobasal hypothalamic GnRH mRNA content of male and female ferrets killed 4 weeks after gonadectomy, either with or without steroid hormone replacement. This time interval exceeds the 6-10 days needed for increments in plasma LH concentrations to stabilize after gonadectomy of ferrets of both sexes. In situ hybridization using an (35)S-labelled oligoprobe complementary to the human GnRH coding region showed that the number of mediobasal hypothalamic neurones and the cellular content of GnRH mRNA did not differ significantly among groups of male and female ferrets that were either in breeding condition or that had been gonadectomized and treated with sex steroids or oil vehicle. These results indicate that gonadal hormones regulate mediobasal hypothalamic GnRH biosynthesis and release in both sexes via post-transcriptional events that may include GnRH mRNA translation or the conversion of pre-pro GnRH precursor into mature GnRH.

Abstract Objective : To analyse the effect of differentiation on disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS) in patients with stage I adenocarcinoma of the endometrium. Patients and methods : From 1979 to 1995, 350 patients with FIGO stage IA–IC with well (G1), moderately (G2) or poorly (G3) differentiated tumors were treated with surgery and high dose-rate brachytherapy with or without external radiation. Median age was 65 years (39–86 years). Results : The 5-year DFS was 8863% for the G1 tumors, 7764% for the G2 tumors, and 6767% for the G3 tumors (P50.0049). With regard to the events contributing to DFS, the 5-year cumulative percentage of local relapse was 4.6% for the G1 tumors, 9.0% for the G2 tumors, and 4.6% (P50.027) for the G3 tumors. Cumulative percentage of metastasis was 1.4, 6.3 and 7.2% (P,0.001), respectively, whereas percentages of death were 6.0, 7.9 and 20.7% (P,0.001). The 5-year OS was 9163, 8364 and 7667%, respectively (P50.0018). In terms of multivariate hazard ratios (HR), the relative differences between the three differentiation groups correspond to an increase of 77% of the risk of occurrence of either of the three events considered for the DFS (HR51.77, 95% Cl [0.94–3.33]), (P50.078) for the G2 tumors and of 163% (HR52.63, 95% Cl [1.27–5.43]), (P50.009) for the G3 tumors with respect to the G1 tumors. The estimated relative hazards for OS are, respectively, in line with those for DFS: HR51.51 (P50.282) for the G2 tumors; and HR53.37 (P50.003) for the G3 tumors. Conclusion : Patients with grade 1 tumors are those least exposed to either local relapse, metastasis, or death. In contrast patients with grade 2 tumors seem to be at higher risk of metastasis, whereas patients with grade 3 tumors appear at higher risk of death. Since we have looked at the first of three competing events (local relapse, metastasis and death), this suggests that patients with grade 3 tumors probably progress to death so fast that local relapse, if any, cannot be observed.

The effect of gradient steepness on the kinetic performance limits and peak compression effects has been assessed in gradient mode for the separation of phenol derivatives using columns packed with 2.6μm core-shell particles. The effect of mobile-phase velocity on peak capacity was measured on a column with fixed length while maintaining the retention factor at the moment of elution and the peak-compression factor constant. Next, the performance limits were determined at the maximum system pressure of 100MPa while varying the gradient steepness. For the separation of small molecules applying a linear gradient with a broad span, the best performance limits in terms of peak capacity and analysis time were obtained applying a gradient-time-to-column-dead-time (t<inf>G</inf>/t<inf>0</inf>) ratio of 12. The magnitude of the peak-compression factor was assessed by comparing the isocratic performance with that in gradient mode applying different gradient times. Therefore, the retention factors for different analytes were determined in gradient mode and the mobile-phase composition in isocratic mode was tuned such that the difference in retention factor was smaller than 2%. Peak-compression factors were quantitatively determined between 0.95 and 0.65 depending on gradient steepness and the gradient retention factor. © 2015 Elsevier B.V. [less ▲]

The influence of pulp chemistry on the flotation performance of sulphide ores has been widely studied. It is well recognised that shifting from a reductive to an oxidative grinding environment affects the pulp chemistry and improves the flotation performances of sulphide ores. Today numerous operations use high chrome media in their communion circuits for this purpose. However, the role of pulp chemistry on the flotation response of mixed ore is poorly understood. Mixed ore consists of a variety of sulphide and oxide minerals, and forms a part of the supergene enrichment zone of sulphide ore bodies. This study highlights the importance of pulp chemistry for mixed ore recovered by sulphidisation and flotation. [less ▲]

Noise barriers are popular devices to mitigate the impact of roads or railway noise on the community. So, heavy works have been devoted to improve their efficiency, both through their shapes and their building materials. In this work, the effect of ground scattering on the insertion loss created by a straight hard thin screen is investigated using a 1/10th scale model. The ground possesses thus a repetitive structure to induce scattering. Measurements are conducted on both sides of the screen and comparisons are drawn with a flat ground configuration. [less ▲]

A study has been conducted with broilers to assess, during the rainy season, the effects of groundnut cake substitution by glandless Cottonseed Kernel (CSK), at levels of 0, 25, 50 and 75%. The substitution improved linearly feed intake and animal growth, as well as carcass component weights and allometric parameters. The CSK increased the C18:2 n-6 to C18:1 n-9 ratio, as well in diet as in meat and subcutaneous fat. In order to explain the observed performances, the possibility is considered that broilers used preferentially C18:2 n-6 fatty acids for their metabolism. Complete glandless cottonseed kernels are probably highly valuable for broilers production in warm and wet conditions. [less ▲]

Mitochondria of amoeba Acanthamoeba castellanii, a non-photosynthetic soil amoeboid protozoon, possess an uncoupling protein (AcUCP) that mediates free fatty acid-activated proton re-uptake dissipating the proton electrochemical gradient built up by respiration. The present study provides the first evidence that UCP could be a cold response protein in unicellulars. In mitochondria isolated from an amoeba batch culture grown temporarily at low temperature (6 degrees C), the content of AcUCP was increased and correlated with an increase in the linoleic acid (LA)-stimulated UCP-mediated carboxyatractyloside-resistant state 4 respiration, as compared to a control culture (routinely grown at 28 degrees C). Moreover, the cytochrome pathway activity was found to be insensitive to the cold exposure of amoeba cells, as indicated by respiration and membrane potential measurements as well as by an absence of change in the adenine nucleotide translocator and cytochrome oxidase expression levels. Furthermore, in mitochondria from the low-temperature-grown cells, at fixed LA concentration, the increased contribution of AcUCP activity to total mitochondrial phosphorylating respiration accompanied by lower coupling parameters was found, as was confirmed by calculation of this contribution using ADP/O measurements.

In terms of natural durability, Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) fame owns to the favourable characteristics of centuries-old trees harvested in old-growth North American forests. The properties of wood coming from plantations harvested between 50 and 100 years-old are likely to be different. In such stands, plantation density and thinning intensity may have a large impact on the trees growth rate. Since this parameter is known to affect some properties of the wood, it was decided to assess to what extent an increase in Douglas fir growth rate affects the natural durability of its wood. This issue is indeed poorly documented in the scientific literature. This parameter was evaluated on standardized heartwood specimens taken from 60 trees originating from 10 stands in Wallonia (Southern Belgium). In all these stands, the average girth of the trees ranged between 140 and 160cm, whilst their age (from plantation) ranged from 38 to 66 years old: These stands are thus representative of very contrasted silvicultural management practices. In terms of individual growth, the Mean Ring Width of the trees ranges between ca 3 and 7mm. Globally, 600 tests specimens were taken from two radial positions in the heartwood of each tree. Half of the specimens were taken in the heartwood at the border of the sapwood; the other half encloses the 20 years old ring, counting from the pith. The mass losses caused by the wood decaying fungus Poria placenta were assessed according to Cen/ts 15083-1 (2005).The natural durability of the wood is discussed as affected by sites, trees, radial positions in tree and tree growth rate.

Douglas-fir is a relatively recent species in the central European forest landscape. It is not clear how its natural durability is influenced by silviculture. We therefore investigated how the natural durability of the (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) Douglas-fir varies according to tree growth rate; subsequently, the influence of the nature of the wood (juvenile or mature) and radial position was also analyzed. For this purposes, a total of 60 trees grown in Wallonia (Southern Belgium) was felled: these consisted of 6 trees in each of 10 stands where the average tree girth was approximately 150 cm. Since the age of these plantations ranged from 40 to 69 years, the radial tree growth rate ranged between approximately 3 and 7 mm. In all the trees, standardized heartwood test specimens were taken from different radial positions in the butt log. The mass losses caused by the fungi Poria placenta and Coniophora puteana were assessed according to CEN/TS 15083-1 (2005). Poria placenta exhibited a higher decaying efficiency than C. puteana, leading to classify Douglas-fir wood as slightly durable (class 4). No difference was observed between the durability against P. placenta of juvenile and mature wood. Similarly, growth rate seemed to have no direct impact on durability. Durability was, however, significantly correlated with wood density. The effect of site and tree on the natural durability of the wood was also examined. [less ▲]
