    Notes: Abstract A measurement technique has been developed for application in the area of noninvasive breast cancer detection. The measurement process involves the use of closerange stereophotogrammetry as a data acquisition device necessary for determination of breast volume and volume distribution. This report details the methodology used to acquire and analyze stereopair photographs necessary to document the validity and reliability of this application. The volume of a test object was determined by both water displacement and stereophotogrammetric analysis to estimate the precision of the proposed methodology. Additionally, the reliability component of the study was documented by analyzing variability of coordinates representing a series of locations marked on the surface of an irregularly shaped object. Both tests confirm that this stereometric analysis is a reliable and valid method of measurement and may be well suited for further development in the field of breast cancer detection.

    Notes: Summary Experimental hives obtained from cordovan queens that were instrumentally inseminated with semen from one cordovan and one Italian drone were set up and allowed to swarm. Cordovan provides a resessive genetic marker system (cuticle color) so that the workers from the cordovan and Italian male lines are distinguishable. Our results show that these patrilineal worker groups segregate non-randomly during colony fission and this segregation cannot be explained by observed age structure. Evidence of innate kin recognition in bees has been previously established. We argue that kin recognition could be responsible for the observed non-random grouping of kin during swarming.

    Topics: Biology
    Notes: Summary Evolutionary stable dispersal and wing muscle histolysis strategies are studied in the waterstriderGerris thoracicus. These strategies relate to spreading reproductive risk. Overwintering individuals have the choice of dispersing to either a brackish sea bay or a rock pool habitat. The former is reproductively more favorable than the latter during warm dry years and less favorable during cool wet years. After spring migration, individuals may histolyse their flight muscles and lay all their eggs in one pool or they may retain their flight ability and lay fewer eggs in total but spread them in several pools. We use a simple two-habitat model to examine the question of habitat dispersal. Our results indicate that, although the value of the evolutionary stable dispersal depends on the degree of variability in the environment and on the probability of local extinctions in either habitat, the population always disperses to both habitats as a consequence of density dependent growth. We use a more detailed multiple-rockpool habitat model to examine the question of wing muscle histolysis as a response to density dependence. Our results indicate that a wing muscle histolysis response to population density is an evolutionarily stable strategy when compared with the two alternatives of females always histolysing or never histolysing their flight muscles. The application of evolutionarily stable theory to stochastic problems presents a number of difficulties. We discuss these difficulties in the context of computing evolutionarily stable strategies for the problems at hand.

    Notes: Abstract The 5′- and 3′-flanking regions of HPRA, a cucumber gene that encodes hydroxypyruvate reductase, were evaluated for regulatory activity with respect to light responsiveness and organ specificity. To define the functional regions of the 5′-flanking region of HPRA, a series of deletions was generated and the remaining portions fused to the β-glucuronidase (GUS) reporter gene (uidA) containing a minimal 35S promoter truncated at −90. The region from −66 to +39 was found to be necessary for light-regulated expression of the uidA reporter gene, while the region from −382 to −67 was found to be necessary for its leaf-specific expression. Further deletion of the HPRA 5′ flanking region to −590 resulted in high levels of root expression, suggesting the presence of a negative regulatory element responsible for silencing root expression of the HPRA gene between −590 and −383. The 3′-flanking region of the HPRA gene downstream of the polyadenylation site contains several sequence motifs resembling regulatory elements present in the promoters of several light-responsive genes. An 823 bp portion of the HPRA 3′-flanking region containing these putative regulatory elements enhanced GUS expression in leaves when placed downstream of the uidA reporter gene in the forward orientation, but not in the reverse orientation. When placed 5′ of the −90 35S promoter, the 823 bp fragment enhanced slightly, independently of orientation, the root tip-specific expression pattern intrinsic to the −90 35S promoter, indicating that in some cases this region can act as a transcriptional enhancer.

    Notes: Abstract A full-length cDNA encoding NADH-dependent hydroxypyruvate reductase (HPR), a photorespiratory enzyme localized in leaf peroxisomes, was isolated from a λgt11 cDNA library made by reverse transcription of poly(A)+ RNA from cucumber cotyledons. In vitro transcription and translation of this clone yielded a major polypeptide which was identical in size, 43 kDA, to the product of in vitro translation of cotyledonary poly(A)+ RNA and subsequent immunoprecipitation with HPR antiserum. Escherichia coli cultures transformed with a plasmid construct containing the cDNA insert were induced to express HPR enzyme activity. RNA blot analysis showed that HPR transcript levels rise significantly in the first eight days of light-grown seedling development. This closely resembles the pattern seen for HPR-specific translatable mRNA. DNA blot analysis indicated that a single HPR gene is likely present per haploid genome. Nucleotide sequence analysis revealed an open reading frame of 1146 bases which encodes a polypeptide with a calculated molecular weight of 41.7 kDa. The derived amino acid sequence from this open reading frame is 26% identical and 50% similar to the amino acid sequence of the E. coli enzyme phosphoglycerate dehydrogenase, which catalyzes a similar reaction and functions in a related pathway. Statistical analyses show that this similarity is significant (z〉10). The derived amino acid sequence for HPR also contains the characteristics of an NAD-binding domain.

    Notes: Abstract The development of peroxisomal enzymes in cotyledons of cucumber seedlings is strongly dependent on light. In light-grown seedlings, activities of two peroxisomal enzymes, hydroxypyruvate reductase (HPR) and serine: glyoxylate aminotransferase (SGAT), were barely detectable until three days postimbibition, after which time both activities increased rapidly and linearly for at least three days. In the dark, the activities of these enzymes increased slightly over the same time period, but only to about 5% to 10% of 7-day light-induced levels. When 51/2-day dark-grown seedlings were transferred into white light, activities of HPR and SGAT began to increase after approximately 8 h. HPR protein was shown by an immunoprecipitation assay to increase concurrently with enzymatic activity in both light- and dark-grown cotyledons. Immunoblotting results suggested that the amounts of SGAT-A and SGAT-B, the two subunits of SGAT, also developed along with SGAT activity. The relative levels of translatable mRNAs encoding HPR, SGAT-A, and SGAT-B were also light-dependent, and increased with a developmental pattern similar to enzyme activity and protein levels in light- and dark-grown cotyledons. In 51/2-day dark-grown cotyledons that were transferred to the light, translatable mRNAs for SGAT-A and SGAT-B began to increase within 1 h of illumination and continued of increase rapidly and linearly for the next 24 h in the light to a new steady-state level that was 45 times that of dark controls. Translatable HPR mRNA exhibited a biphasic pattern of accumulation, with a three-fold increase during the first 6 h of illumination, followed by an additional six-fold increase between 8 and 24 h. The accumulation of translationally active mRNA for both enzymes preceded the accumulation of the corresponding protein and enzyme activity by about 8 h. Our data suggest that the rise in enzyme activity depends on an increase in translatable mRNA for these enzymes and is regulated at a pretranslational level, most likely involving transcription of new mRNA.

    Notes: Abstract Transcription of the cucumber hpr-A gene is responsive to cytokinin and light. To investigate the molecular basis for transcriptional regulation by cytokinin, we have identified DNA sequences and proteins that may be involved in the regulation of hpr-A gene expression. Transient expression assays in etiolated cucumber cotyledons indicate that the 315 bp fragment (−382 to −67) contains sequences necessary for cytokinin responsiveness of the luciferase reporter gene. Band shift assays detected cytokinin-enhanced and -reduced protein binding sites in a 97 bp fragment (−382 to −285) upstream of the hpr-A gene. DNase I footprinting identified two protein-protected sites, a 15 bp sequence, 5′-AAATGACGAAAATGC-3′, that contains an as-1 TGACG motif found in other plant promoters, and a 13 bp sequence, 5′-AAGATTGATTGAG-3′, of unknown function. Two-dimensional band shift analysis of the cytokinin-responsive DNA protein complex revealed the presence of six DNA protein interactions. Band shift assays showed that cytokinin and light have different effects on the interaction of nuclear proteins to the 97 bp fragment of the hpr-A gene. These data suggest that cytokinin and light do not share identical signal transduction pathways in regulating hpr-A gene expression.
