Transgenerational Effects of Variable Foraging Demand Stress in Female Bonnet Macaques
Abstract Stress coping is an important part of mammalian life, influencing somatic and mental health, social integration, and reproductive success. The experience of early psychological stress helps shape lifelong stress coping strategies. Recent studies have shown that the effects of early stress may not be restricted to the affected generation, but may also be transmitted to offspring. Understanding whether early stress influences development in subsequent generations may help us understand somewhat why many stress‐related traits and diseases, for which little genetic basis has been discovered, run in families. Experim...

Intergenerational programming of metabolic disease: evidence from human populations and experimental animal models.
Abstract We are in the midst of unparalleled epidemics of obesity and type 2 diabetes-complex phenotypes originating at the intersection of genetic and environmental risk. As detailed in other chapters, evidence indicates that non-genetic, or environmental, risk may initiate during prenatal and early postnatal life . Striking examples in humans include the association of low birth weight (LBW) and/or accelerated early growth with increased risk of insulin resistance, obesity, type 2 diabetes (T2DM), and cardiovascular disease (CVD), and the close relationship between maternal obesity or diabetes with childhood o...

Habitat productivity constrains the distribution of social spiders across continents -- case study of the genus Stegodyphus
Conclusions: Habitat productivity constrains the distribution of social spiders across continents compared to their solitary congeners, with group-living in spiders being restricted to areas with relatively high vegetation productivity and insect prey biomass. As known for other taxa, permanent sociality likely evolves in response to high predation pressure and imposes within-group competition for resources. Our results suggest that group living is contingent upon productive environmental conditions where elevated prey abundance meet the increased demand for food of social groups.

Exploring the built environment, physical activity and related behaviours of young people attending school, college and those not in employment
Conclusions Obesity in young people is a major concern and prevention of obesity a high priority. Little is known about the PA behaviours of this age group and the context of these behaviours during this period of transition. Understanding lifestyle behaviours such as PA and context of activity is an important first step in development interventions to encourage greater activity in this transitory age group.

Measurements of the neutron dose and energy spectrum on the International Space Station during expeditions ISS-16 to ISS-21
As part of the international Matroshka-R and Radi-N experiments, bubble detectors have been used on board the ISS in order to characterise the neutron dose and the energy spectrum of neutrons. Experiments using bubble dosemeters inside a tissue-equivalent phantom were performed during the ISS-16, ISS-18 and ISS-19 expeditions. During the ISS-20 and ISS-21 missions, the bubble dosemeters were supplemented by a bubble-detector spectrometer, a set of six detectors that was used to determine the neutron energy spectrum at various locations inside the ISS. The temperature-compensated spectrometer set used is the first to be dev...

Radon monitoring in groundwater samples from some areas of northern Rajasthan, India, using a RAD7 detector
Radon monitoring has been increasingly conducted worldwide because of the hazardous effects of radon on the health of human beings. In the present research, groundwater samples were taken from hand pumps at different areas of the districts of SriGanganagar, Hanumangarh, Sikar and Churu in northern Rajasthan. RAD7, an electronic radon detector (Durridge co., USA), was used to estimate the radon concentration in groundwater used for drinking. Radon concentration in the groundwater ranged from 0.5 ± 0.3 Bq l–1 (Chimanpura) to 85.7±4.9 Bq l–1(Khandela) with an average value of 9.03±1.03 Bq l&nd...

Monte Carlo mitochondrial dosimetry and microdosimetry of 131I
A mitochondrion is an organelle found in most eukaryotic cells, which produces most of the energy needed by a living cell. It has been shown that ionising radiation causes mitochondrial damage leading to apoptosis or cell death. The aim of this work was to calculate, by Monte Carlo simulation, the specific energy (z) into the mitochondria, due to Auger electrons, conversion electrons and beta emission from 131I, where the radionuclide was carried by a vector to the cell surface and the surrounding environment. A concentric spherical geometry represents a cell and its nucleus. Three different volumes were used to represent ...

Stress‐induced brain histone H3 phosphorylation: contribution of the intensity of stressors and length of exposure
Abstract Expression of c‐fos is used for the characterization of brain areas activated by stressors. Recently, some epigenetic markers associated to enhanced transcription, have been identified that may be also useful to detect neuronal populations important for the processing of stressors: phosphorylation of histone H3 in serine 10 or 28 (pH3S10 or pH3S28). Then, we compared in rats the response to stress of c‐fos and these epigenetic changes. More specifically, we studied the influence of the type of stressor (novel environment versus immobilization, IMO) and the dynamics of the response to IMO. Stress increased pH3S...

Target Article with Commentaries: Developmental niche construction
Abstract Niche construction is the modification of components of the environment through an organism's activities. Humans modify their environments mainly through ontogenetic and cultural processes, and it is this reliance on learning, plasticity and culture that lends human niche construction a special potency. In this paper we aim to facilitate discussion between researchers interested in niche construction and those interested in human cognitive development by highlighting some of the related processes. We discuss the transmission of culturally relevant information, how the human mind is a symbol‐generating and artefa...

Innate and adaptive anti-HIV immune responses in the female reproductive tract
Abstract: The mucosal surface of the female reproductive tract (FRT) is the primary site of transmission for a plethora of sexually transmitted infections, including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), that represent a significant burden upon womens’ health worldwide. However, fundamental aspects of innate and adaptive immune protection against HIV infection in the FRT are poorly understood. The FRT immune system is regulated by the cyclical changes of the sex hormones estradiol and progesterone across the menstrual cycle, which as we have hypothesized, leads to the creation of a window of vulnerability during the secret...

Immune balance at the foeto-maternal interface as the fulcrum of reproductive success
Abstract: Viviparity has many evolutionary advantages but brings with it the problem of the semi-allogeneic foetus having to coexist with the mother for the duration of pregnancy. In species with haemochorial placentation this problem is particularly evident as foetal trophoblast cells are extensively intermingled with maternal tissue and are directly exposed to maternal blood. Fascinating adaptations on both the foetal and maternal side have allowed for this interaction to be re-directed away from an immune rejection response not only towards immunotolerance, but in fact towards actively supporting reproductive success. R...

Flow cytometric analysis of Pig‐a gene mutation and chromosomal damage induced by procarbazine hydrochloride in CD‐1 mice
Procarbazine is a genotoxic carcinogen whose DNA‐damaging activities are not reliably detected in vitro. We evaluated the in vivo genotoxic effects of procarbazine on hematopoietic cells of male CD‐1 mice using a multi‐endpoint study design that scored micronucleated reticulocyte (MN‐RET) frequency and gene mutation at the Pig‐a locus. CD‐1 mice were treated for 3 days with procarbazine, up to 150 mg/kg/day. Blood samples collected on Day 3 exhibited robust induction of MN‐RETs, with the high dose group exhibiting a mean 29‐fold increase. Blood collected 15 and 30 days after treatment began was analyzed for...

The biological role of prokaryotic and eukaryotic N-acetyltransferase.
Abstract The N-acetyltransferases (NAT; E.C.126.96.36.199) are involved in the metabolism of drugs and environmental toxins. They catalyse the acetyl transfer from acetyl coenzyme A to an aromatic amine, heterocyclic amine, or hydrazine compound. NAT homologues are present in numerous species from bacteria to human. Sequence variations in the human NAT1 and NAT2 result in the production of NAT proteins with variable enzyme activity or stability, leading to slow or rapid acetylation. Therefore, genetic polymorphisms in NAT1 and NAT2 influence drug metabolism and drug-related toxicity. Epidemiological studies suggest that ...
