Possible Role of Mother-Daughter Vocal Interactions on the Development of Species-Specific Song in Gibbons  [PDF]
Hiroki Koda, Alban Lemasson, Chisako Oyakawa, Rizaldi, Joko Pamungkas, Nobuo Masataka
PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0071432
Abstract: Mother-infant vocal interactions play a crucial role in the development of human language. However, comparatively little is known about the maternal role during vocal development in nonhuman primates. Here, we report the first evidence of mother-daughter vocal interactions contributing to vocal development in gibbons, a singing and monogamous ape species. Gibbons are well known for their species-specific duets sung between mates, yet little is known about the role of intergenerational duets in gibbon song development. We observed singing interactions between free-ranging mothers and their sub-adult daughters prior to emigration. Daughters sang simultaneously with their mothers at different rates. First, we observed significant acoustic variation between daughters. Co-singing rates between mother and daughter were negatively correlated with the temporal precision of the song’s synchronization. In addition, songs of daughters who co-sang less with their mothers were acoustically more similar to the maternal song than any other adult female’s song. All variables have been reported to be influenced by social relationships of pairs. Therefore those correlations would be mediated by mother-daughter social relationship, which would be modifiable in daughter’s development. Here we hypothesized that daughters who co-sing less often, well-synchronize, and converge acoustically with the maternal acoustic pattern would be at a more advanced stage of social independence in sub-adult females prior to emigration. Second, we observed acoustic matching between mothers and daughters when co-singing, suggesting short-term vocal flexibility. Third, we found that mothers adjusted songs to a more stereotyped pattern when co-singing than when singing alone. This vocal adjustment was stronger for mothers with daughters who co-sang less. These results indicate the presence of socially mediated vocal flexibility in gibbon sub-adults and adults, and that mother-daughter co-singing interactions may enhance vocal development. More comparative work, notably longitudinal and experimental, is now needed to clarify maternal roles during song development.

Indian Journal of Dermatology , 2004,
Abstract: An eighteen year old female patient presented with pitted scars over her face, back and flexures, associated with discrete comedones over her trunk, face and extremities of 5 years duration. There was history of similar lesions in her mother since her adolescence. Examination of mother and daughter revealed reticulate flexural hyperpigmentation over neck, axillae, cubital and popliteal fossae in addition to the above mentioned findings. A few cystic lesions were also present on the back and flexures. Dowling-Degos disease in mother and daughter is reported for its rarity and also for some additional features present in these patients, i.e., multiple comedones on the back and extremities in addition to the flexures and also extensive acneiform scarring all over the face in contrast to perioral pitted scars reported in earlier cases.
Mother-Daughter Relationship and Daughter’s Body Image  [PDF]
Shenaar-Golan Vered, Ofra Walter
Health (Health) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/health.2015.75065
Abstract: The adolescent years are characterized by emotional upheaval and hormonal and physiological changes that often create tension and conflicts between girls and their parents. This research study is based on an analysis of the mother-adolescent daughter relationship, with 46 mother-daughter dyads. This research assessed the effect of the daughter’s body image (independent variable) and her view of her own mother-daughter relationship (independent variable) on her sense of wellbeing (dependent variable). This study used four questionnaires to evaluate the dyadic model: the Modified Gray’s Questionnaire (Body Image), the Leisure Time Exercise Questionnaire (LTEQ), the Mental Health Inventory (MHI) for measurement of the subjective sense of wellbeing, and the Relationship with Mother Questionnaire. Study findings show the importance of the adolescent girl’s positive body image on her sense of wellbeing, as well as the centrality of the mother-daughter relationship in the daughter’s body image and wellbeing.
Mother and Daughter Prisoners of Guilt: A Discussion of Freudian and Kleinian Theory  [PDF]

Psychology (PSYCH) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2019.105045
Abstract: The present article starts from questions raised about the discussion of the feeling of guilt in the mother and daughter relation, mainly from the theories of Freud on the importance of the fault of the emotional development of the individuals and Melanie Klein’s on the fundamental paper in the fault on the capacity to make repairs. Our objective is to investigate how possible flaws in the processes of elaboration of ambivalent conflicts may bring guilt, rather than becoming a conductive device to this development, to become an obstacle. Finally, still based on Freud and Klein, we will address the specificities of guilt in this relationship and how it can make it difficult to construct and separate this bond.

Health (Health) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/health.2013.56A1005

Objective: To establish whether a mother’s intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) has connections to her daughter’s health. Design: A retrospective study of daughters to ICP mothers. Setting: The region of Tampere University Hospital in Finland. Subjects: The study population comprised 575 women diagnosed with ICP during at least one pregnancy in the obstetric department of Tampere University Hospital in the period 1969-1988, and two controls chosen for each. Questionnaires were sent to these women and to their daughters: 305 daughters to ICP mothers and 642 to controls in autumn 2010. Eventually 187 daughters to ICP mothers responded (61.3%) and 373 to controls (58.1%). Main Outcome Measures: Evaluated health, symptoms and complaints, diagnosed diseases, mental health and use of medicines. Results: Only minor differences were detected between the two groups regarding the majority of items inquired. The only prominent difference between daughters to ICP mothers and those to controls concerned epilepsy, which was significantly more frequent among ICP mothers’ daughters, the prevalence being fourfold (3.2% vs 0.8%, p = 0.033). Conclusion: A mother’s ICP does not generally affect her daughter’s health. This can be considered an encouraging new finding for mothers with ICP in primary health care.

Abstract: Gastric B-cell lymphoma of the mucosa associated lymphoid tissue (MALT) lymphoma is one of the most common forms of extranodal lymphoma. In addition to infection with Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), the presence of an underlying autoimmune disease has also been associated with MALT lymphoma development. To date, no familial predisposition for MALT lymphomas has been reported as opposed to other types of lymphoma. A 65-year-old woman was admitted at our institution in 1998 with a diagnosis of H. pylori positive gastric MALT lymphoma and the presence of chronic autoimmune thyroiditis was established on further work-up. H. pylori eradication did not result in regression of the lymphoma and RT-PCR showed the presence of the t(11;18)(q21;q21) translocation. About 1.5 years after H. pylori eradication, chemotherapy with cladribine resulted in complete remission. Due to lymphoma recurrence 13 mo later, radiotherapy to the stomach (46 Gy) resulted in minimal residual disease without further progression. The patient developed a second malignancy (Epstein-Bar virus-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma in the mediastinum) in 2004 which initially responded to two courses of chemotherapy, but she refused further therapy and died of progressive lymphoma in 2006. In 2008, her 55 years old daughter with a long standing Sj gren’s syndrome was diagnosed with MALT lymphoma of the right parotid, but no evidence of gastric involvement or H. pylori infection was found. Currently, she is alive without therapy and undergoing regular check-ups. To our knowledge, this is the first report of MALT lymphoma in a first-degree relative of a patient with gastric MALT lymphoma in the context of two autoimmune diseases without a clearly established familial background.
Mother-Daughter Conflict among 18 - 21 Years Old Adolescents: Structure, Causes and Management

Open Access Library Journal (OALib Journal) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/oalib.1101491
Abstract: This research examines mother-daughter conflict in freshmen/first-year female students (18 - 21 years) enrolled at the Faculty of Social Sciences (FSS), University of the West Indies (UWI), St. Augustine, Trinidad. The concentration on mothers in full or part-time paid employment is reinforced by Pickhardt [1] who argued that mothers are more comfortable than fathers in family conflict. The purpose of the study was to describe the structure of a typical mother-daughter conflict by examining its causes and management. Using a sample of 23 (sociology and psychology) students, 10 open-ended questions were posed. The major questions were: Why do you get into conflict with your mother? What or who is to blame? What is a typical conflict like? What effects does conflict have on you? How are these conflicts resolved or managed? A phenomenological approach was adopted. Purposive sampling was employed by recruiting only females (18 - 21) involved in at least one family conflict in the last month (September, 2014). First the findings indicate five (5) features of mother-daughter conflict: Conduct (act or speech), Response, Reaction, Intensification and Containment (CRRIC). The second is that issues of home and school are the main sources of conflict and that at the end daughters fare less well compared to mothers. Future research includes mother-son conflict and the parenting adolescent/young adult children.

Abstract: Background. Congenital fibrosis of extraocular muscles (CFEOM) is a very rare congenital condition, characterized by variable amounts of restriction of the extraocular muscles, with or without ptosis. The aim of this report was to deseribe a severe, atypical, exposure-induced corneal stromal lysis in two patients. Case report. A mother and a daughter with a severe CFEOM were presented. The surgery of both extraocular muscles and ptosis led to a fair outcome in mother even 30 years after, and a very good outcome in daughter 4 years after the treatment. Conclusion. Though frequently challenging and disappointing the outcome of surgery of both extraocular muscles and ptosis in CFEOM can be favorable even in rather severe cases. To the best of our knowledge, the atypical keratolysis we described has not been highlighted in the literature on CFEOM so far.

Abstract: National surveys and other research on adolescent Latinas show that adolescent females have higher rates of suicidal ideation, planning, and attempts than other ethnic and racial minority youth. Internalizing behaviors and family conflicts are commonly associated with suicidality in research on adolescents. In the case of Latinas, we explore the connection between adolescent Hispanic cultural involvement, mother-adolescent mutuality, internalizing behaviors, and suicidality. This paper presents data from a study of 232 Latinas, some with a recent history of suicide attempts ( ). The results show that higher adolescent Hispanic cultural involvement was associated with greater mother-daughter mutuality and thus led to reduction in the likelihood of suicide attempts. The relationship between mother-daughter mutuality and suicide attempts among Latinas is mediated by specific internalizing behaviors (withdrawn depressive). Our findings highlight the positive effect that Latino cultural values have in the relationship between Latina adolescent and their mothers and confirm the importance that internalizing behaviors and the mother-daughter relationship have for suicide attempters. 1. Background Since 1991, the Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance System (YRBSS) has shown that the rates of suicide ideation, planning, and attempts by adolescent Latinas are higher than those of adolescents of other ethnic and racial groups [1, 2]. Latinas are also more likely to have attempted suicide one or more times in the year prior to the survey (11.1%) compared to Blacks (10.4%) and Whites (6.5%) [1]. In addition, Latina adolescents are known to manifest higher levels of depression and suicidal behaviors than female adolescents from other racial and ethnic groups [3–6]. Not only do Latinas report more persistent feelings of sadness and hopelessness, but they are consistently more prone to ideate, plan, and attempt a suicide. For example, the 2009 YRBSS [1] shows that Latina adolescents were more likely to feel sad or hopeless (39.7%) than any other group of girls (Black, 37.5% or White, 31.1%). Finally, the existing literature has provided ample evidence for the connection between depression and suicide attempts among adolescents [7] and between attempts and completed suicide [8]. 1.1. Hispanic Cultural Involvement, Mother-Daughter Relationships, and Suicidal Behavior The examination of interpersonal transactions during adolescence between Latina suicide attempters and their families, especially their mothers, can provide important insight into the course of suicidal thinking
Guanylic nucleotide starvation affects Saccharomyces cerevisiae mother-daughter separation and may be a signal for entry into quiescence

Abstract: To gain insight into the molecular relationships connecting intracellular guanylic nucleotide levels and cellular proliferation, we have studied the consequences of guanylic nucleotide limitation on Saccharomyces cerevisiae cell cycle progression. We first utilized mycophenolic acid, an immunosuppressive drug that specifically inhibits inosine monophosphate dehydrogenase, the enzyme catalyzing the first committed step in de novo GMP biosynthesis. To approach this system physiologically, we next developed yeast mutants for which the intracellular guanylic nucleotide pools can be modulated through changes of growth conditions. In both the pharmacological and genetic approaches, we found that guanylic nucleotide limitation generated a mother-daughter separation defect, characterized by cells with two unseparated daughters. We then showed that this separation defect resulted from cell wall perturbations but not from impaired cytokinesis. Importantly, cells with similar separation defects were found in a wild type untreated yeast population entering quiescence upon nutrient limitation.Our results demonstrate that guanylic nucleotide limitation slows budding yeast cell cycle progression, with a severe pause in telophase. At the cellular level, guanylic nucleotide limitation causes the emergence of cells with two unseparated daughters. By fluorescence and electron microscopy, we demonstrate that this phenotype arises from defects in cell wall partition between mother and daughter cells. Because cells with two unseparated daughters are also observed in a wild type population entering quiescence, our results reinforce the hypothesis that guanylic nucleotide intracellular pools contribute to a signal regulating both cell proliferation and entry into quiescence.Guanylic nucleotides are critical for multiple crucial cellular processes such as replication, transcription, translation and signalization via small GTPases. Most cell types recycle GMP from guanosine or guanine, which
