Prolactin replacement fails to inhibit reactivation of gonadotropin secretion in rams treated with melatonin under long days. (1/7797)

This study tested the hypothesis that prolactin (PRL) inhibits gonadotropin secretion in rams maintained under long days and that treatment with melatonin (s.c. continuous-release implant; MEL-IMP) reactivates the reproductive axis by suppressing PRL secretion. Adult Soay rams were maintained under long days (16L:8D) and received 1) no further treatment (control, C); 2) MEL-IMP for 16 wk and injections of saline/vehicle for the first 8 wk (M); 3) MEL-IMP for 16 wk and exogenous PRL (s.c. 5 mg ovine PRL 3x daily) for the first 8 wk (M+P). The treatment with melatonin induced a rapid increase in the blood concentrations of FSH and testosterone, rapid growth of the testes, an increase in the frequency of LH pulses, and a decrease in the LH response to N-methyl-D,L-aspartic acid. The concomitant treatment with exogenous PRL had no effect on these reproductive responses but caused a significant delay in the timing of the sexual skin color and growth of the winter pelage. These results do not support the hypothesis and suggest that PRL at physiological long-day concentrations, while being totally ineffective as an inhibitor of gonadotropin secretion, acts in the peripheral tissues and skin to maintain summer characteristics.  (+info)

In order to identify the nature of the glucocorticoid receptor (GR)-expressing neurons and pituitary cells that potentially mediate the negative effects of stress on reproductive performance, double immunohistochemical stainings were performed in the brain and pituitary of the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss). To avoid possible cross-reactions during the double staining studies, combinations of primary antibodies raised in different species were used, and we report here the generation of an antibody raised in guinea pig against the rainbow trout glucocorticoid receptor (rtGR). The results obtained in vitellogenic females showed that GnRH-positive neurons in the caudal telencephalon/anterior preoptic region consistently exhibited rtGR immunoreactivity. Similarly, in the anterior ventral preoptic region, a group of tyrosine hydroxylase-positive neurons, known for inhibiting gonadotropin (GTH)-2 secretion during vitellogenesis, was consistently shown to strongly express GR. Finally, we show that a large majority of the GTH-1 (FSH-like) and GTH-2 (LH-like) cells of the pituitary exhibit rtGR immunoreactivity. These results indicate that cortisol may affect the neuroendocrine control of the reproductive process of the rainbow trout at multiple sites.  (+info)

Precocious estrus and reproductive ability induced by PG 600 in prepuberal gilts. (3/7797)

A total of 29 SPF Large White prepuberal gilts (mean age 152 days at treatment) were examined for estrous and ovulatory responses after PG 600 treatment. After treatment, 85.2% of the gilts showed standing estrus within 6 days. Whereas the treatment-to-estrus interval and duration were 3.7 and 1.9 days respectively. As ovulation occurred on Day 5 to 6, appropriate timing of artificial insemination would be about 4 days after treatment. Fertility of gilts revealed to be excellent, giving rise to a high percentage of normal embryos, 85.3%. Meanwhile, development and growth of fetuses were mostly normal. Other reproductive performances recorded were: mean litter size 6.8; mean birth weight 1.26 kg; weaning-to-return estrus interval 5 to 8 days. In conclusion, PG 600 was found to be useful in inducing fertile estrus in prepuberal gilts, a result which will be of interest for commercial pig farms.  (+info)

Utero-ovarian interaction in the regulation of reproductive function. (4/7797)

The physiological regulation of fertile reproductive cycle in mammals depends on interactions between hypothalamus-pituitary, ovarian and uterine stimuli. Over the past 20 years, much has been learned about the interrelation between the affluent and effluent lymph and vascular drainage in and around both ovarian and uterine tissues. An essential feature in the regulation of the fertile cycle is the functional status of the ovary, particularly the corpus luteum. During the time of implantation and the early pregnancy, an active corpus luteum is essential. As human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) is important in the maintenance of the corpus luteum, we investigated if it was produced by the cyclic endometrium. Immunohistochemical and in-situ hybridization reactions were performed but neither identified the presence of HCG during the proliferative phase. Positive staining and beta-human chorionic gonadotrophin (beta-HCG) mRNA were observed during the secretory phase in the glandular cells of the endometrium. The results were confirmed by Western blotting of secretory phase endometrium extracts and assessment of the functional secretory capacity of primary endometrial cultures. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) investigations showed a positive result in the secretory phase. We postulate that, based on the very close morphological interrelation between the uterus and the ovary, the beta-HCG of the endometrium is the primary factor for the maintenance of the corpus luteum and early pregnancy.  (+info)

The effects of a t-allele (tAE5) in the mouse on the lymphoid system and reproduction. (5/7797)

Mice homozygous for tAE5, a recessive allele at the complex T-locus, are characterized by their unique short-tailed phenotype as well as by runting and low fertility. Histological and histochemical studies of the lymphoid and reproductive systems disclosed structural changes in the mutant spleen resembling those found in autoimmune conditions. Involution of the mutant thymus was greatly accelerated compared to normal. Necrotic changes occurred during spermiogenesis whereas ovarian structure was normal in mutants. The possible mechanisms of the mutant effects are discussed in the framework of other similar syndromes and the mode of action of alleles at the complex T-locus.  (+info)

Ultrastructure of meiosis-inducing (heterotypic) and non-inducing (homotypic) cell unions in conjugation of Blepharisma. (6/7797)

Cells of mating types I and II of Blepharisma japonicum interact with each other and unite in heterotypic (type I-type II) or homotypic (type I-type I, type II-type II) pairs. Heterotypic pairs undergo meiosis and other nuclear changes of conjugation, while homotypic pairs remain united for days without the nuclear changes taking place. We compared cell unions of these two kinds of pairs at the ultrastructural level. In the homotypic union, cell membranes are closely juxtaposed, separated by a distance of about 20 nm. This arrangement is interrupted in some places by vacuoles and small cytoplasmic bridges. Saccule-like structures tend to be more abundant near the united surfaces. Microtubules running at right or slightly obtuse angles with the cell surface (PACM microtubules) are characteristically present at the united region of cells. These structures are very similar to those observed in earlier stages of the heterotypic union. However, in homotypic pairs, cells unite only at the anterior half of the peristome, while in heterotypic pairs cells unite also at the posterior half of the peristome, where the cell membrane totally disappears in later stages. PACM microtubules persist for at least 18 h in homotypic unions, while they disappear within a few hours in heterotypic unions. These differences between the two kinds of cell union are discussed in relation to the initiation mechanism of meiosis and other nuclear changes of conjugation. Similarities between homotypic union and cell junctions in multicellular organisms are also discussed.  (+info)

Evaluation of life-cycle herd efficiency in cow-calf systems of beef production. (7/7797)

A deterministic beef efficiency model (BEM) was used to evaluate life-cycle herd efficiency (LCHE) in cow-calf beef production systems using four breed groups of beef cattle. The breed groups were Beef Synthetic #1 (SY1), Beef Synthetic #2 (SY2), Dairy Synthetic (DS), and purebred Hereford (HE). The LCHE was defined over the lifetime of the herd as the ratio of total output (lean meat equivalent) to total input (feed equivalent). Breed differences in LCHE were predicted with the larger/slower maturing DS being most efficient at each age of herd disposal and reproductive rate. This was mainly because, at any average age at culling, the dams of DS breed group were less mature and so had been carrying relatively lower maintenance loads for shorter periods and positively influencing LCHE. Higher LCHE was predicted with improvement in reproductive performance if there were no associated extra costs. However, this declined markedly if there was a delay in marketing of offspring. As average age at culling increased from 4 to 6 yr, efficiency declined sharply, but it began to recover beyond this age in most breed groups. We concluded that the slower maturing DS breed group may be more efficient on a herd basis in cow-calf systems and that improvements in reproductive rate not associated with extra costs improve life-cycle efficiency. Culling cows soon after their replacements are produced seems efficient.  (+info)

Gonadotropin-releasing hormone improves reproductive performance of dairy cows with slow involution of the reproductive tract. (8/7797)

Eighty multiparous Holstein cows were assigned randomly at calving to receive either 100 microg of GnRH or saline 13 or 14 d postpartum (PP). From 4 to 28 d PP the cows' reproductive organs were palpated weekly per rectum, and cows were subclassified within each group as undergoing slow (delayed) cervical and uterine involution (abnormal) or as normal cows. Last milk obtained after removing the milking machine was assayed for progesterone 3 times a week for 120 d PP. Fourteen of the 80 cows were removed from the experiment because of culling or various veterinary treatments of pathologic conditions that could confound analysis of the GnRH treatment effects. As expected, the treatment of normal cows with GnRH had no significant effects on the first estrus or the first estrous cycle PP, on services per conception, days open, or any other reproductive trait measured. However, in the abnormal group of cows receiving saline, first rebreeding after calving was delayed (81 vs. 67 d), fewer were pregnant by 105 d PP (23 vs. 64%), and number of days open was greater (121 vs. 87 d) compared with those receiving GnRH; all were significant (P<.05). Treated abnormal cows were equivalent to the control normal cows. Thus, GnRH given 13 to 14 d PP to cows characterized as undergoing slow involution of the reproductive system, but with no other clinical problems, seems to assist in promoting rapid normal reproductive function. Subsequent losses due to culling were greatly reduced.  (+info)

Rainbow trout is a significant fish farming species under temperate climates. Female reproduction traits play an important role in the economy of breeding companies with the sale of fertilized eggs. The objectives of this study are threefold: to estimate the genetic parameters of female reproduction traits, to determine the genetic architecture of these traits by the identification of quantitative trait loci (QTL), and to assess the expected efficiency of a pedigree-based selection (BLUP) or genomic selection for these traits. A pedigreed population of 1343 trout were genotyped for 57,000 SNP markers and phenotyped for seven traits at 2 years of age: spawning date, female body weight before and after spawning, the spawn weight and the egg number of the spawn, the egg average weight and average diameter. Genetic parameters were estimated in multi-trait linear animal models. Heritability estimates were moderate, varying from 0.27 to 0.44. The female body weight was not genetically correlated to any of the

It has been challenging to genetically improve reproduction traits with the resources of the conventional breeding because of the low heritability of these traits. In Finland genetic improvement of the reproduction traits hasnt either meet the expectations entirely. Gene markers are one possibility to make genetic improvement of the reproduction traits more effective. With an association analysis it is possible to find those gene markers which have statistically significant effect on the trait. The purpose of this study was to identify SNP markers associated with reproduction traits in the Finnish Yorkshire pig breed. Other purpose of this study was to find out if both Finnish pig breeds have certain chromosomal regions associated with same reproduction traits. In this study one goal was also to discover genes which are placed near statistically significant SNP markers. Under this study were nine female reproduction traits which are total number of piglets born in first and later parities, ...

Costs of reproduction are the trade-offs that exist between reproductive investment and survival and/or future reproduction [1,2]. In recent years, studies have focused on the ecological and physiological basis of these costs [3,4]. Such costs include increased oxidative stress (e.g. [5]) and metabolism (e.g. [6]), impaired immune function, and decreased growth, energy stores (e.g. [7]) and endurance (e.g. [8]). Reproductive effort can also have intergenerational effects: offspring quality may decrease when reproductive investment increases, owing to a trade-off between offspring number and quality [2]. Experiments have shown the existence of such a trade-off in mammals, reptiles and birds. For example, offspring from enlarged litters [9,10] or miniaturized eggs [11] have been shown to have a lower survival [10,11], be more stressed and have a lower immune performance [9]. Therefore, parental reproductive effort is linked to offspring quality. Moreover, small offspring can show a period of ...
Definition of Proximate Cause in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is Proximate Cause? Meaning of Proximate Cause as a legal term. What does Proximate Cause mean in law?
Fitness trade-offs such as costs of reproduction are an integral component of evolutionary theory, and a common trade-off is that increased reproduction decreases longevity. Our labs interest in reproductive costs stems from its potential to reveal conserved mechanisms that regulate the aging process. When we were in the planning stage of this study, our goal was to explain a recent phenotype we observed where the lifespan of fruit flies was decreased by exposure to pheromones of the opposite sex, and mating actually partially reversed this negative effect. While we were obviously interested in the molecular mechanisms of these phenotypes, we also sought to better understand why this might occur from a conceptual level. Our first thought from this perspective was that the negative effects of pheromones in the absence of mating may be due to a mismatch between expectation and reality. In this line of thought, mating partially rescued the negative effects of pheromones on longevity because the ...

A project in Denmark whose aim is to assess the reliability of preconceptional lifestyle and biological factors as predictors of fertility has found a pronounced effect of the contraceptive pill on markers used to assess ovarian reserve, a predictor of future reproductive lifespan. Available evidence of whether the Pill has an effect on fertility has so far been reassuring - and usual advice to those stopping the Pill is that cycles will soon revert to normal, with pregnancy likely within six months or so.(1)

This is an important reproductive health problem as fertility declines with increasing female age. Unfortunately, IVF using fresh oocytes cannot compensate for this age-related fertility decline. Oocyte freezing could be a solution. Methods We used the Markov model to estimate the cost-effectiveness of three strategies for 35-year-old women who want to postpone pregnancy till the age of 40: Strategy 1: women undergo three cycles of ovarian hyperstimulation at age 35 for oocyte freezing, then at age 40, use these frozen oocytes for IVF; Strategy 2: women at age 40 attempt to conceive without treatment; and the reference strategy: women at age 40 ...

Our second expectation was that the decline in the population growth rate, as observed in wild ungulates, would be caused first by a reduction in foal survival and in reproductive performance and last by the survival of adult females. Foal survival did indeed decline strongly as density increased from 5 to 23 horses km−2. Fecundity was strongly age-structured in these horses, as in wild ungulates, and the fecundity of young females declined at high density (see Duncan 1992), though not significantly in the years up to 1981. The fecundity of young mares in Przewalskis horses (Equus przewalskii) was also density dependent, with a delayed age at first reproduction (Tatin et al. 2009). By contrast with wild herbivores, fecundity in prime-aged Camargue females remained high and quasi-constant at high density. Fecundity is an important criterion for horse breeders in the Camargue (P. Duncan 1979, personal observation), and it is possible that mares of this breed have been selected based on this ...

Critical body residues (CBRs) are the measured tissue toxicant concentrations yielding a median dose-response on a dry-weight or lipid-normalized basis. They facilitate management decisions for species protection using tissue analysis. Population CBR is the mean dose yielding 50% population suppression and was predicted here in Amphiascus tenuiremis for fipronil sulfide (FS) using lifetables and the Leslie matrix. Microplate bioassays (ASTM E-2317-14) produced biomass sufficient for dry mass and lipid-normalized CBR estimates of reproduction (fertility) and population growth suppression. Significant FS toxic effects were delayed naupliar development (at ≥0.10 µg L(-1)), delayed copepodite development (at 0.85 µg L(-1)), decreased reproductive success (at ≥ 0.39 µg L(-1)), and decreased offspring production (at 0.85 µg L(-1)). A reproductive median effective concentration (EC50) of 0.16 µg L(-1) (95% CI: 0.12-0.21 µg L(-1)) corresponded to an adult all-sex CBR and lipid-normalized CBR ...
In humans, early embryo development is a complex process that consists of sequential events: oocyte maturation, fertilization, embryonic growth and implantation. Disruption of these highly regulated processes results in reproductive failure and infertility. This study characterizes and describes embryonic aneuploidy, mitochondrial content level and endometrial microbial environment related to reproductive competence, in particular instances in which failure results. To examine the molecular underpinnings of mammalian gamete and early embryo chromosome segregation, we established a comprehensive chromosomal screening (CCS) method for mice poly bodies, oocytes and embryos by the application of whole genome amplification (WGA) and next generation sequencing (NGS). First, we validated this approach using single mouse embryonic fibroblasts engineered to have stable trisomy 16. We further validated this method by identifying reciprocal chromosome segregation errors in the products of meiosis I (gamete and

In ecological character displacement, traits involved in reproductive isolation may not evolve in arbitrary directions when changes in these traits are by-products of adaptation to an ecological niche. In reproductive character displacement, however, selection acts directly on reproductive characters to enhance the degree of reproductive isolation between sympatric populations. Thus, the direction of change in reproductive characters may be arbitrary in relation to changes in other morphological characters. We characterized both tegminal characters and characters indicative of body size in sympatric and allopatric populations of Gryllus fultoni, a species displaying character displacement in its calling song characters in areas of sympatry with G. vernalis populations, to infer the nature and direction of selection acting on reproductive and morphological characters in sympatry. Except for mirror area, the number of teeth in a file, and ovipositor length of G. fultoni, all male and female morphological
Whether contemporary human populations are still evolving as a result of natural selection has been hotly debated. For natural selection to cause evolutionary change in a trait, variation in the trait must be correlated with fitness and be genetically heritable and there must be no genetic constraints to evolution. These conditions have rarely been tested in human populations. In this study, data from a large twin cohort were used to assess whether selection will cause a change among women in a contemporary Western population for three life-history traits: age at menarche, age at first reproduction, and age at menopause. We control for temporal variation in fecundity (the baby boom phenomenon) and differences between women in educational background and religious affiliation. University-educated women have 35% lower fitness than those with less than seven years education, and Roman Catholic women have about 20% higher fitness than those of other religions. Although these differences were ...
Current environmental risk assessment (ERA) of chemicals for aquatic invertebrates relies on standardized laboratory tests in which toxicity effects on individual survival, growth and reproduction are measured. Such tests determine the threshold concentration of a chemical below which no population-level effects are expected. How well this procedure captures effects on individuals and populations, however, remains an open question. Here we used mechanistic effect models, combining individual-level reproduction and survival models with an individual-based population model (IBM), to understand the individuals responses and extrapolate them to the population level. We used a toxicant (Dispersogen A) for which adverse effects on laboratory populations were detected at the determined threshold concentration and thus challenged the conservatism of the current risk assessment method. Multiple toxicity effects on reproduction and survival were reported, in addition to effects on the F1 generation. We ...
Comprising over 1400 species worldwide, rodents are the largest taxonomic group of mammals (Nowak 1999). Rodent use of habitats is extensive and varied. Most rodent species are relatively small, secretive, prolific, adaptable, and have continuously growing incisors which require constant eroding by gnawing. Rodents are known for their high reproductive potential; however, there is much variability between species as to the age at first reproduction, size of litters, and the number of litters per year. All rodent species have ecological, scientific, social, and/or economic values. They recycle nutrients, aerate soils, distribute seeds and spores, and affect plant succession. Some provide meat and furs for people. Several species are used in large numbers in medical research. Additionally, they provide an important prey base for many species of predatory animals.

The bromophenol 2,4,6-tribromophenol (TBP) is widely used as an industrial chemical, formed by degradation of tetrabromobisphenol-A, and it occurs naturally in marine organisms. Concentrations of TBP in fish have been related to intake via feed, but little is known about effects on fish health after oral exposure. In this study, we exposed adult male and female zebrafish (Danio rerio) to TBP via feed in nominal concentrations of 33, 330, and 3300 μg/g feed (or control feed) for 6 weeks to assess the effects of TBP on reproductive output, gonad morphology, circulatory vitellogenin levels, and early embryo development. The aim was also to investigate the extent to which TBP was metabolised to 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA) in dietary exposed zebrafish, and the amounts of TBP and TBA found in offspring. After 6 weeks of exposure, we found about 3% of the daily dose of TBP in adult fish and the mean concentration of TBA was 25-30% of the TBP concentration. TBP and TBA were detected in offspring with ...

Answer (1 of 1): Basically in eukaryotic reproduction cycle , the asexual reproduction involves mitosis only while the sexual reproduction involves meiosis and syngamy. Both of these processes are the counterparts of each other thats why both of them are required in the sexual reproduction. Meiosis and Syngamy, together make the reproduction process a cycle|. In the meiosis phase, the cells are gone through the cell division and get haploid number of chromosomes. The process of reproduction is completed when the two gametes are fused in the syngamy phase. In this way both of these processes are must in the completion of the reproduction cycle.

Species-specific strategies for financing the costs of reproduction are well understood, forming a continuum ranging from high to low reliance on stored nutrients. Animals relying mostly on stored reserves are termed capital breeders, whereas income breeders rely mostly on concurrent intake when financing the costs of reproduction. The role and adaptive value of individual variation in these strategies remain elusive. Life-history theory posits that capital breeding should be favoured when offspring reproductive value peaks, typically occurring early in the season, and that current income should increasingly be used with progressing season. Because resource limitation may hamper flexible resource allocation, a corollary prediction is that only good-condition individuals may show the expected seasonal shift in resource use. To test this prediction, we examined stable isotopes (δ13C and δ15N) in blood and lipid-free egg yolk of breeding eider females (Somateria mollissima) from the Baltic Sea to
Prenatal and preimplantation testing technologies have offered unprecedented access to information about the genetic and congenital makeup of our prospective progeny. Future developments such as preconception testing, noninvasive prenatal testing, and more extensive preimplantation testing promise to increase that access further still. The result may be greater reproductive choice, but it also increases the burden on women and men to avail themselves of these technologies in order to avoid having a child who has a disability. The overwhelming question for legislators has been whether and, if so, how to regulate the use of these technologies in the face of compelling but seemingly contradictory claims about the advancement of reproductive choice and the dangers of eugenic or discriminatory effects. This book examines the evolution of this legislative oversight across a number of jurisdictions and explores the tensions and ambiguities that inform these laws. ...

Summary - The reproduction of Radopholus similis isolates from different origins and hosts was compared in carrot disk cultures at different temperatures. At 15°C, only the isolates collected from ornamental plants in Europe reproduced. The greatest fecundity was observed at 25°C. The reproduction factor (final population/initial population: Pf/Pi) ranked the isolates in similar order for four of the temperatures studied (15, 20, 25 and 30°C). When carrot discs at 28°C were inoculated with single females of isolates selected from those with different reproductive factors, this ranking was confirmed. This suggests that reproduction is controlled by intrinsic isolate characteristics which are not influenced by temperature. Isolates with most reproduction had a greater percentage of reproductive females than isolates with less reproduction, associated with a high ratio of females : males and a high proportion of females in the total production.

The gonads are dormant until they are activated by hormones at sexual maturity. (See also Sexuality.)The male gametes, called spermatozoa or sperm, are produced in the testes. Spermatozoa are microscopic tadpole-shaped cells with long tails. In all invertebrates the testes are internal, but in most mammals, including humans, they lie in an external sac called the…
This one-generation study assessed the potential of esterified propoxylated glycerol (EPG) to affect reproduction and offspring development in rats. Male and female Crl:CD(SD)BR rats (30/sex/group) were exposed to EPG at 0, 0.5, 1, and 2g/kgbw/day or at 5% (w/w) in the diet prior to (13weeks), during, and after two consecutive matings. For dams, exposure continued through gestation and lactation; F1a and F1b pups were weaned to the respective diet (for up to 91days).
The peculiar bone histology of Myotragus provides direct evidence of the developmental and growth strategy and indirect evidence regarding the physiology of this insular dwarf mammal. The presence of lamellar-zonal bone throughout the cortex indicates that Myotragus grew at slow and variable rates and ceased growth cyclically, which was associated with an important delay in the attainment of skeletal (sexual) maturity. Consistent with life history theory (30), the extended juvenile development of Myotragus was associated with an extended life span as indicated by the elevated number of very old individuals in the fossil assemblages (10). Our empirical finding, hence, does not support the prediction that life history traits of insular dwarfs accelerate to increase reproductive investment (12-15), but instead lends support to the model that predicts a shift in life history traits toward the slow end of the slow-fast continuum with a delay in age at maturity and an extended life span (16).. True ...
Our data provide no evidence that positive selection is enhanced in sympatry, and if these candidate GRPs are involved in prezygotic isolation, we have no evidence for enhanced prezygotic isolation. The polymorphism statistics likewise give no indication that RCD is occurring in these three proteins.. We cannot necessarily conclude from lack of evidence for RCD in CIPRO37.40.1, CIPRO60.5.1 and CIPRO100.7.1 that RCD is not occurring in this system. If enhanced prezygotic isolation between Type A and B does exist, there are several reasons why we might not have detected it in this study. First, primers for candidate GRPs were developed from the Type A genomic sequence and were used to amplify and sequence both Type A and B individuals (the Type B genome has not been sequenced). But Type A and B are substantially divergent (p-distances: 0.124 at mtCOI, 0.035 to 0.116 for six nuclear loci; [43]), which could explain why 15 genes encoding GRP candidates could not be successfully amplified and/or ...

It is interesting to note that all bone and weight gains seen in paired female mole-rats appeared several weeks after removal from reproductive suppression and became statistically discernible from males or controls approximately 6-10 weeks after colony separation. This is most likely because small increases in growth need to accumulate to be observable. This explanation was confirmed by the growth rate data, which can be a more sensitive index of subtle changes that are occurring in bone turnover. Although it took weeks to see the net increase in bone length, increased bone growth rates in paired females occurred during the 5-week block immediately after colony separation, and this growth rate peaked 10 weeks after colony separation. Therefore, growth mechanisms appeared to accelerate immediately after colony separation. The growth rate data demonstrated a pattern that consisted of an initial sharp increase and asymptote in growth, with elevated growth rates continuing for several weeks before ...
4. The type of division, in which two individuals are formed from a single individual, is … Budding 3. The segments rapidly grow new cells to constitute their muscle fiber and internal structure through mitosis. These are binary fission, budding, vegetative reproduction, fragmentation and by spores. Segmented worms and many echinoderms such as starfish reproduce asexually via fragmentation. Organisms produced by asexual reproduction are the product of mitosis. There are two types of reproduction - sexual reproduction and asexual reproduction. Asexual reproduction is the primary form of reproduction for single-celled organisms such the archaea, bacteria, and protists. Natural selection, the mechanism for evolution, chooses which traits are favorable adaptations for a given environment and which are unfavorable. A particular type of cell known as a gemmule can develop into a new organism. But in the long term (over several generations), lack of sexual reproduction compromises their ability to ...
Despite being listed as endangered on the IUCN (World Conservation Union) red list (Anon, 2006) and intense conservation efforts on its behalf, little is known about the reproductive biology of the Fijian ground frog (Platymantis vitianus). Breeding is important for species survival and hormones are the essence of reproduction. The certain aspects of captive breeding and reproductive endocrinology of P. vitianus is studied so that the basic reproductive patterns can be understood. The breeding of P. vitianus is being studied in a purpose built outdoor enclosure based at the University of the South Pacific (USP), Fiji Islands as an insurance policy while invasive species eradication work is on-going on Viwa Island (one of the five remaining mongoose [Herpestes javanicus] free island habitats of P. vitianus). Primary focus of captive breeding is to establish an ex-situ captive management strategy, egg-embryo management and monitoring the health status of P. vitianus. Under the ex-situ captive ...
The evolution and maintenance of sexual reproduction may involve important tradeoffs because asexual reproduction can double an individuals contribution to the gene pool but reduces diversity. Moreover, in social insects the maintenance of genetic diversity among workers may be important for colony growth and survival. We identified a previously unknown termite breeding system in which both parthenogenesis and sexual reproduction are conditionally used. Queens produce their replacements asexually but use normal sexual reproduction to produce other colony members. These findings show how eusociality can lead to extraordinary reproductive systems and provide important insights into the advantages and disadvantages of sex.. ...
We studied annual and lifetime reproductive success (LRS) of both sexes of common buzzard Buteo buteo in eastern Westphalia, Germany. We followed a bottom-up approach starting from individual breeding attempts, over lifetime reproductive success to derive population demography. Annual breeding performance and survival followed a quadratic relationship with breeding experience; individuals starting their breeding career were less likely to survive and breed successfully than birds of intermediate breeding experience. According to an analysis of selection gradients, both the opportunity and intensity of selection peaked in the early stages of the breeding career. The distribution of both LRS and another fitness measure, lambda, was highly skewed, with ca 17% of adult birds producing 50% of fledglings in both sexes. Besides breeding life span and number of breeding attempts, habitat quality and plumage morph were significant predictors of LRS. There were strong differences in LRS and lambda between ...

In order to identify potential candidate genes that might underlie these effects, a comparative mapping analysis was undertaken to define the extent of orthologous segments of human chromosome 9. A microsatellite associated with heat shock protein (HSP) A5 was used to define the proximal boundary of the quantitative trait loci (QTL) region, which suggests the human orthologue of the gene(s) responsible for the observed effects lies between HSPA5 and the q arm telomere of human chromosome 9. Examination of this region revealed two ...

Reproduction (or procreation or breeding) is the biological process by which new individual organisms - offspring - are produced from their parents. Reproduction is a fundamental feature of all known life; each individual organism exists as the result of reproduction. There are two forms of reproduction: asexual and sexual. In asexual reproduction, an organism can reproduce without the involvement of another organism. Asexual reproduction is not limited to single-celled organisms. The cloning of an organism is a form of asexual reproduction. By asexual reproduction, an organism creates a genetically similar or identical copy of itself. The evolution of sexual reproduction is a major puzzle for biologists. The two-fold cost of sexual reproduction is that only 50% of organisms reproduce and organisms only pass on 50% of their genes. Sexual reproduction typically requires the sexual interaction of two specialized organisms, called gametes, which contain half the number of chromosomes of normal ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Overexpression of transforming growth factor α in transgenic mice alters nonreproductive, sex-related behavioral differences. T2 - Interaction with gonadal hormones. AU - Hilakivi-Clarke, L.. PY - 1994. Y1 - 1994. N2 - Sexually dimorphic differences in voluntary sodium intake, locomotor activity, immobility in the swim test, and aggressive behavior were found to be altered in transgenic CD-1 mice that overexpressed transforming growth factor α (TGFα). In contrast to nontransgenic CD-1 mice, immobility in the swim test was longer and sodium intake higher in the male TGFα mice than in the female TGFα mice. These findings indicate that the male TGFα mice exhibited feminization of some behaviors. Furthermore, the male TGFα mice were highly aggressive. Castration reversed the behavioral effects in the adult male transgenic mice, but ovariectomy did not reverse the behavioral effects in the adult female transgenic mice. Thus the feminizing effect of TGFα on some nonreproductive ...

Asexual reproduction is the mode of reproduction in prokaryotes. In particular, prokaryotes reproduce through binary fission. Eukaryotes, especially higher forms of animals, reproduce through sexual means, i.e. by sexual reproduction. In sexual reproduction, gametes are produced by meiosis. A male gamete fertilizes the female gamete, forming a zygote. Some eukaryotes are capable of asexual reproduction. In asexual reproduction, the organism is capable of reproducing an offspring in the absence of a mate. As a result, the offspring is a clone of the parent and therefore results in low genetic variation in the species as a whole. Some species are capable of heterogamy, i.e. the ability to alternate between sexual and asexual reproduction. ...
Considerable information is available on the reproductive function of goats, but research on reproductive management of goats in the U.S. has focused mostly on milk and fiber production systems and has not been directed at meat as the primary product. In a meat production system, however, reproductive performance is of paramount importance since productivity is largely a function of the number of offspring born and weaned and the frequency with which they are produced.

ALCOHOLS EFFECTS ON FEMALE REPRODUCTION. The following section details alcohols effects on puberty, the female reproductive system, and postmenopause, as revealed by human and animal studies.. Alcohol and Puberty. Rapid hormonal changes occurring during puberty make females especially vulnerable to the deleterious effects of alcohol exposure during this time. Thus, the high incidence of alcohol consumption among middle school and high school students in the United States is a matter of great concern. A national survey of students revealed that 22.4 percent of 8th graders and 50 percent of 12th graders reported consuming alcohol in the 30 days before the survey (Johnston et al. 2001). Little research on the physiological effects of alcohol consumption during puberty has focused on human females. However, one study found that estrogen levels were depressed among adolescent girls ages 12 to 18 for as long as 2 weeks after drinking moderately (Block et al. 1993). This finding suggests the ...

Urine and blood samples collected at these times were assayed for diurnal urinary catecholamines, urinary C-peptide and 3-methylhistidine, total blood ketone bodies, glycerol, the reproductive hormones, adrenal androgens, and thyroid hormones. Subcutaneous fat was measured by ultrasonography. All of the metabolic and hormonal data post-swim except cortisol reflected the severe physiological stress. Urinary catecholamines returned to near-normal levels by 12 hours ...
Translocation of mothers with dependent calves is ill-advised, especially when restocking. Interestingly, there was a sex-differential risk when using juvenile and young adults to restock populations. These may have important implications for sex- or age-biased translocation strategies designed to reduce the impact of harvest on the source population or maximize productivity after release. Juvenile, but not young adult, females had high post-release mortality. The reverse was true for males where juvenile males did not feature in mortality statistics but were a large portion of young adult deaths.. Sex differential mortality amongst juvenile and young adult age classes might be due to sex differences in age at first reproduction because it is a high-risk period in a large polygynous vertebrates life. Female black rhinoceros attract the sexual interest of bulls at their first oestrous around 3·5 years of age (first parturition between 4·8 and 5·3 years, Schenkel & Schenkel-Hulliger 1969; and ...

Costs of reproduction are an integral and long-standing component of life-history theory, but we still know relatively little about the specific physiological mechanisms underlying these trade-offs. We experimentally manipulated workload during parental care in female European starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) using attachment of radios and/or wing clipping and assessed measures of workload, current breeding productivity, future fecundity, and survival (local return rate) in relation to treatment. Females with wing clipping and radio attachment paid a clear cost of reproduction compared with all other treatment groups: they had lower future fecundity and lower return rates despite having lower current breeding productivity. We then measured 13 physiological traits, including measures of aerobic/metabolic capacity, oxidative stress and muscle damage, intermediary metabolism and energy supply, and immune function. Our results show that the cost of reproduction in females with wing clipping and radio ...
One of the key tenets of life-history theory is that reproduction and survival are linked and that they trade-off with each other. When dietary resources are limited, reduced reproduction with a concomitant increase in survival is commonly observed. It is often hypothesized that this dietary restriction effect results from strategically reduced investment in reproduction in favor of somatic maintenance to survive starvation periods until resources become plentiful again. We used experimental evolution to test this waiting-for-the-good-times hypothesis, which predicts that selection under sustained dietary restriction will favor increased investment in reproduction at the cost of survival because good-times never come. We assayed fecundity and survival of female Drosophila melanogaster fruit flies that had evolved for 50 generations on three different diets varying in protein content-low (classic dietary restriction diet), standard, and high-in a full-factorial design. High-diet females ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Photoperiod. T2 - Its importance as an impeller of pineal and seasonal reproductive rhythms. AU - Reiter, R. J.. PY - 1980/3/1. Y1 - 1980/3/1. N2 - A number of long day breeding rodents depend on seasonal changes in photoperiodic length to synchronize their breeding seasons with the appropriate time of the year. These relationships are particularly conspicuous in the Syrian hamster where day length is vitally important in determining periods of sexual activity and inactivity. The organ in the body whose activity is most closely attuned to the photoperiodic environment is the pineal gland. During periods of darkness the biochemical and secretory activity of the pineal is enhanced with the resultant production of antigonadotrophic principles which are strongly suppressive to reproductive physiology. In this manner, decreasing day lengths of the fall are involved with suppressing sexual capability in male and female hamsters. Throughout the winter months darkness (because of the ...

The swine herd in this research was located in Chiang Mai province, Northern Thailand (latitude 18° 47′ 43″ North and longitude 98° 59′ 55″ East). The climate of the area is tropical, with average temperature ranging from 17°C to 35°C, average relative humidity ranging from 37% to 99%, and average rainfall ranging from 880 mm to 1,457 mm over the last thirteen years [10]. Seasons were defined as winter (November to February), summer (March to June), and rainy season (July to October). Gilts and sows were housed in an open-house system with water dripper, sprinkler, and fans, while boars were kept in an enclosed barn with an evaporative cooling system. Boars were fed 2.5 kg/d of feed with 16% crude protein and 3,200 to 3,500 kcal/kg. Sows received rations of different composition depending on the status of their reproductive cycle. Gilts and non-lactating sows were fed 2.5 kg/d of feed with 16% crude protein and 3,200 to 3,500 kcal/kg of energy. Nursing sows were fed 5 to 6 kg/d of ...
Reproduction is influenced by the physiological and environmental modulation of the hypothalamic gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neuronal network. GnRH hypothalamic activity is reflected in the systemic circulation by its downstream effector, luteinising hormone (LH). During stress, the GnRH-dependent LH activity that is required for adequate gonadal development and function is suppressed by glucocorticoids secreted by the adrenal glands. Emerging research in the field of stress-induced infertility show glucocorticoids do not directly inhibit GnRH activity and instead may act via the inhibitory RFamide-related peptide (RFRP) neurons, which suppress GnRH secretion. Thus far, this intermediary inhibitory role of RFRP neurons between the stress and reproductive axes is mainly supported by the upregulated expression of hypothalamic RFRP activity with stress in both sexes. Using a transgenic mouse model, the experiments in this thesis examine whether hypothalamic RFRP neuronal signalling is ...

For studying the influence of feed and temperature on gonad growth and maturity of the baby clam Marcia opima, experiments were conducted for 45 days at temperatures of 23°C and 28°C. The progress of gonadal recovery was followed by periodic determination of gonadosomatic index, condition index, digestive gland index and oocyte diameter. There was significant difference in the gonadosomatic index between fed and unfed clams at 23°C and 28°C. No significant difference in the gonadosomatic index was noted in the fed treatments at 23°C and 28°C, but the time of conditioning had significant influence on the gonadosomatic index. A significant relationship was found between the gonadosomatic index and condition index of the clams in all the treatments. ...

Abstract: Heritablities and correlations were estimated between lamb body weight at different ages and reproductive traits in the Lori-Bakhtiari sheep breed. Data and pedigree information for Lori-Bakhtiari sheep used in this study were 5826 records of body weight of lambs from 240 sires and 1627 dams, and 5741 records of reproductive traits from 1797 ewes collected from 1989 to 2006 from a Lori-Bakhtiari flock at the Shooli station in Shahrekord. The lamb traits investigated were weights at birth (BWT), weaning (WWT) and at six months of age (WT6). The reproductive traits were conception rate (CR), litter size at birth per ewe lambing (LSB/EL), litter size at weaning per ewe lambing (LSW/EL), litter size at birth per ewe exposed to a ram (LSB/EE), litter size at weaning per ewe exposed (LSW/EE), total litter weight at birth per ewe lambing (TLWB/EL), total litter weight at weaning per ewe lambing (TLWW/EL), total litter weight at birth per ewe exposed (TLWB/EE) and total litter weight at ...
ABSTRACT. In Mexico City, Chapultepec Zoo is working together with the Zoological Society of San Diego and Ueno Zoo in Japan on the improvement of assisted techniques for the reproduction of the Giant Panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) a highly endangered species native to the Peoples Republic of China.. The Giant Panda is a seasonally monoestrus species in which the estrus lasts from 9 to 11 days, spontaneously ovulating and being sexually receptive for only 2 or 3 days. In Mexico the Giant Panda females have presented an estrus peak within mid February until mid April. Therefore, accurate monitoring of the estrus cycle to pinpoint the time of ovulation is critical for the timed mating or artificial insemination. Monitoring estrogen (E1G) and progesterone (PdG) in a non-invasive way indicates hormonal changes that are continuously evaluated and corroborated with modifications on the vaginal cytology and behavior, as well as to confirm or discard pregnancy and to predict birth time.. Hormone ...

Appraisal of reproductive strategy and fecundity is necessary to evaluate the reproductive potential of individual fish species. To estimate reproductive potential, one needs to consider a variety of attributes including onset of maturity, fecundity, atresia, duration of reproductive season, daily spawning behaviour and spawning fraction. In this contribution, we review several methods currently used to estimate fecundity of marine fishes collected in the field in relation to their reproductive strategy. The advantages and disadvantages of each method are provided. Requirements are given to appropriately sample gonadal tissue that will enable researchers to establish incidence of sexual maturity and estimate fecundity ...

Each proglottid contains a complete set of male and female reproductive organs that produce the sex cells. Fertilization is internal; in most species cross fertilization between two adjacent worms is necessary, but in a few species self-fertilization may occur between two proglottids of the same worm, or within the same proglottid. In some species the fertilized eggs are shed continuously and leave the hosts body in the feces; in others the fertilized eggs are stored until the proglottid is filled with them and the entire proglottid is then shed. The eggs develop into embryos with a hard outer shell; these do not hatch until they are eaten by a suitable intermediate host.. ...
