Effects of Neonicotinoid Insecticides on Physiology and Reproductive Characteristics of Captive Female and Fawn White-tailed Deer.

Sci Rep 2019 Mar 14;9(1):4534. Epub 2019 Mar 14.

North Dakota Game and Fish Department, Bismarck, ND, USA.

Over the past decade, abnormalities have been documented in white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus) in west-central Montana. Hypotheses proposed to explain these anomalies included contact with endocrine disrupting pesticides, such as imidacloprid. We evaluated the effects of imidacloprid experimentally at the South Dakota State University Wildlife and Fisheries Captive Facility where adult white-tailed deer females and their fawns were administered aqueous imidacloprid (an untreated control, 1,500 ng/L, 3,000 ng/L, and 15,000 ng/L).

Early Identification of Preterm Neonates at Birth With a Tablet App for the Simplified Gestational Age Score (T-SGAS) When Ultrasound Gestational Age Dating Is Unavailable: Protocol for a Validation Study.

JMIR Res Protoc 2019 Mar 12;8(3):e11913. Epub 2019 Mar 12.

Department of Global Health, Boston University School of Public Health, Boston, MA, United States.

Background: Although rates of preterm birth continue to increase globally, identification of preterm from low birth weight infants remains a challenge. The burden of low birth weight vs preterm is greatest in resource-limited settings, where gestational age (GA) prior to delivery is frequently not known because ultrasound in early pregnancy is not available and estimates of the date of the mother's last menstrual period (LMP) may not be reliable. An alternative option is to assess GA at birth to optimize referral and care of preterm newborns. Read More

Sperm motility and lipid composition in internally fertilizing ocellate river stingray Potamotrygon motoro.

Theriogenology 2019 Mar 2;130:26-35. Epub 2019 Mar 2.

University of South Bohemia in České Budějovice, Faculty of Fisheries and Protection of Waters, Bohemian Research Center of Aquaculture and Biodiversity of Hydrocenoses, Zátiší 728/II, 389 25, Vodňany, Czech Republic. Electronic address:

All extant groups of Elasmobranches have internal fertilization and the structure of the male reproductive organs is very specific: sperm passes from the internal organs via the cloaca, but the male copulating organ (clasper) is distant from the cloaca. This suggests that sperm can contact the surrounding medium before fertilization. Because of this involvement with the environment, external signaling in sperm motility activation could occur in these species even though their fertilization mode is internal. Read More

The expression of melatonin receptors MT1 and MT2 is regulated by E2 in sheep oviduct.

Gen Comp Endocrinol 2019 Mar 5. Epub 2019 Mar 5.

College of Veterinary Medicine, Gansu Agricultural University, Lanzhou 730070, Gansu, China.

Some of the functions of melatonin in mammals are exerted through its membrane receptors (MRs) and studies have shown that estradiol (E2) might play an important role in regulating the expression of these proteins in female reproductive organs. However, no reports have reported the expression of MRs in the sheep oviduct or whether they are regulated by E2. Thus, herein, we detected the localization of MT1 and MT2 in the sheep oviduct.

Long non-coding RNAs in biology and female reproductive disorders.

Front Biosci (Landmark Ed) 2019 03 1;24:750-764. Epub 2019 Mar 1.

Center for Reproductive Medicine, Shandong Provincial Hospital Affiliated to Shandong University, Jinan, China,

Accumulating data from large-scale transcriptome studies have identified a class of poorly understood non-protein-coding RNAs, including microRNAs, piwi-interacting RNAs (piRNAs), and long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs), and a number of studies suggest that lncRNAs modulate the expression of protein-coding genes in a variety of tissues and organs by altering chromatin modification, transcription, mRNA decay, protein subcellular localization, and other key processes. Although much work still remains to identify the roles of lncRNAs in reproduction-related systems, they are likely to exert widespread effects during these processes. In this review, we highlight our emerging understanding of how lncRNAs regulate gene expression, and we discuss the physiological role of this new class of molecular regulators in neurobiology, cardiology, endocrinology, metabolism, muscle biology, and female reproductive disorders.

Heterochrony of puberty in the European badger (Meles meles) can be explained by growth rate and group-size: Evidence for two endocrinological phenotypes.

PLoS One 2019 6;14(3):e0203910. Epub 2019 Mar 6.

Wildlife Conservation Research Unit, Department of Zoology, University of Oxford, Oxford, United Kingdom.

Puberty is a key stage in mammalian ontogeny, involving endocrinological, physiological and behavioural changes, moderated by intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Thus, not all individuals within one population achieve sexual maturity simultaneously. Here, using the European badger (Meles meles) as a model, we describe male testosterone and female oestrone profiles (using Enzyme-immunoassays) from first capture (3 months, post-weaning) until 28 months (attaining sexual maturity and final body size), along with metrics of somatic growth, scent gland development and maturation of external reproductive organs as well as intra-specific competition.

Physiological and anatomical aspects of the reproduction of mice with reduced Syndecan-1 expression.

Reprod Biol Endocrinol 2019 Mar 2;17(1):28. Epub 2019 Mar 2.

Department of OB/GYN and REI (UniKiD), University Hospital Düsseldorf, Moorenstraße 5, 40225, Düsseldorf, Germany.

Background: Syndecan-1 is a heparan sulfate proteoglycan acting as a co-receptor for cytokines and growth factors mediating developmental, immunological and angiogenic processes. In human, the uteroplacental localization of Syndecan-1 and its reduced expression in pregnancy-associated pathologies, such as the intrauterine growth restriction, suggests an influence of Syndecan-1 in embryo-maternal interactions. The aim of the present study was to identify the effect of a reduced expression of Syndecan-1 on the reproductive phenotype of mice and their progenies. Read More

Taste Receptors: New Players in Sperm Biology.

Int J Mol Sci 2019 Feb 22;20(4). Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Department of Molecular and Developmental Medicine, Siena University, 53100 Siena, Italy.

Taste receptors were first described as sensory receptors located on the tongue, where they are expressed in small clusters of specialized epithelial cells. However, more studies were published in recent years pointing to an expression of these proteins not only in the oral cavity but throughout the body and thus to a physiological role beyond the tongue. The recent observation that taste receptors and components of the coupled taste transduction cascade are also expressed during the different phases of spermatogenesis as well as in mature spermatozoa from mouse to humans and the overlap between the ligand spectrum of taste receptors with compounds in the male and female reproductive organs makes it reasonable to assume that sperm "taste" these different cues in their natural microenvironments.

Functional morphology of Trichadenotecnum male and female genitalia analyzed using μCT (Insecta: Psocodea: Psocomorpha).

J Morphol 2019 Apr 18;280(4):555-567. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Systematic Entomology, Graduate School of Agriculture, Hokkaido University, Sapporo, Japan.

Although the great genital diversity of the barklouse genus Trichadenotecnum has been described in previous studies, the specific function of the genital structures during the copulation process has received less investigative attention. We reconstructed 3D-models of each structure of the male and female genitalia of Trichadenotecnum incognitum in copula and those of uncopulated male and female of Trichadenotecnum pseudomedium. By comparing the changes in male and female genital structures and related muscles in copulated and uncopulated states, the function of each genital structure can be described. Read More

Alternative (backdoor) androgen production and masculinization in the human fetus.

PLoS Biol 2019 Feb 14;17(2):e3000002. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Institute of Medical Sciences, School of Medicine, Medical Sciences and Nutrition, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen, United Kingdom.

Masculinization of the external genitalia in humans is dependent on formation of 5α-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) through both the canonical androgenic pathway and an alternative (backdoor) pathway. The fetal testes are essential for canonical androgen production, but little is known about the synthesis of backdoor androgens, despite their known critical role in masculinization. In this study, we have measured plasma and tissue levels of endogenous steroids in second trimester human fetuses using multidimensional and high-resolution mass spectrometry. Read More

Epigenetic inheritance of telomere length in wild birds.

PLoS Genet 2019 02 14;15(2):e1007827. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

Groningen Institute for Evolutionary Life Sciences, University of Groningen, Groningen, The Netherlands.

Telomere length (TL) predicts health and survival across taxa. Variation in TL between individuals is thought to be largely of genetic origin, but telomere inheritance is unusual, because zygotes already express a TL phenotype, the TL of the parental gametes. Offspring TL changes with paternal age in many species including humans, presumably through age-related TL changes in sperm, suggesting an epigenetic inheritance mechanism. Read More

Immunomodulatory effects of progesterone and selective ligands of membrane progesterone receptors.

Steroids 2019 May 10;145:5-18. Epub 2019 Feb 10.

Faculty of Biology, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow 119991, Russia. Electronic address:

Progesterone (P4) and its analogues regulate various reproductive processes, such as ovulation, implantation, pregnancy maintenance and delivery. In these processes, an important role is played by the immune cells recruited to the female reproductive organs and tissues, where they are exposed to the action of P4. Progestins regulate cellular processes, acting through nuclear steroid receptors (nSRs), membrane P4 receptors (mPRs), and through the sensors. Read More

Pymetrozine activates TRPV channels of brown planthopper Nilaparvata lugens.

Pestic Biochem Physiol 2019 Jan 5;153:77-86. Epub 2018 Nov 5.

College of Plant Protection, Nanjing Agricultural University, Nanjing 210095, China. Electronic address:

The commercial insecticide pymetrozine has been extensively used for brown planthopper control in East Asia. The transient receptor potential vanilloid (TRPV) channel, which consists of two proteins, Nanchung (Nan) and Inactive (Iav), has recently been shown to be the molecular target of pymetrozine in the fruit fly (Drosophila melanogaster) and pea aphid (Acyrthosiphon pisum). In this study, we characterized the Nan and Iav TRPV channel subunits of N. Read More
