Abstract: the biology of holhymenia rubiginosa breddin is described on sweet-passion-fruit, passiflora alata, and the developmental time, viability and thermal requirements of the egg stage, the developmental time and mortality of the nymphal stage, and adult longevity and reproductive parameters were assessed. insects were reared at laboratory controlled conditions (25 ± 1°c, 65 ± 10% rh, photophase 12h) on branches of p. alata, 20% honey solution and pollen. the lower thermal threshold (10.8°c) and thermal requirements (140.8 dd) for egg development were determined using four temperatures (17, 21, 25 and 30°c). the average egg development time (days) and viability were 25.4 ± 0.45, 88%; 13.2 ± 0.28, 88%; 8.8 ± 0.16, 94%; and 7.7 ± 0.17, 92%, at 17, 21, 25 and 30 ± 1°c, respectively. when reared at 25 ± 1°c, the first instar had the shortest development time (4.0 ± 0.02 days) and the second the longest (15.7 ± 3.50 days), which also had the highest mortality (75%). males and females had similar longevity (185.3 ± 17.52 days for females and 133.6 ± 18.94 days for males). females mated 33.0 ± 7.71 times, with a mean duration of 99.0 ± 9.25 min, laying 11.5 ± 2.55 eggs/female. periods of pre-oviposition, oviposition and post-oviposition were respectively 96.4 ± 18.08; 88.5 ± 23.48 and 19.3 ± 12.18 days.

Abstract: the south american fruit fly, anastrepha fraterculus (wiedemann, 1830) (diptera, tephritidae), is a leading pest of brazilian fruit crops. this study evaluated how prior experience with artificial fruits containing peach and/or guabiroba pulp influenced the ovipositing behavior of a. fraterculus. insects 15-21 days old were exposed to four treatments: 1) experience with guabiroba, campomanesia xanthocarpa o. berg (myrtaceae); 2) experience with peach, prunus persica (l.) batsch (chimarrita cultivar; rosaceae); 3) experience with both fruits; and 4) no experience (naive). naive females and females experienced with guabiroba pulp and with both fruits (peach and guabiroba) oviposited and showed dragging and puncturing behavior on substrates containing guabiroba, but females that were only exposed to peach pulp did not show a preference for any substrate. the study shows that prior experience with substrate influences ovipositing behavior in a. fraterculus.

Abstract: The bimodality in galaxy properties has been observed at low and high redshift, with a clear distinction between star-forming galaxies in the blue cloud and passively evolving objects in the red sequence; the absence of galaxies with intermediate properties indicates that the quenching of star formation and subsequent transition between populations must happen rapidly. In this paper, we present a study of over 100 transiting galaxies in the so-called "green valley" at intermediate redshifts (z ~ 0.8). By using very deep spectroscopy with the DEIMOS instrument at the Keck telescope we are able to infer the star formation histories of these objects and measure the stellar mass flux density transiting from the blue cloud to the red sequence when the universe was half its current age. Our results indicate that the process happened more rapidly and for more massive galaxies in the past, suggesting a top-down scenario in which the massive end of the red sequence is forming first. This represent another aspect of downsizing, with the mass flux density moving towards smaller galaxies in recent times.

Abstract: Heat shock proteins (Hsps) are stress induced proteins with immunomodulatory properties. The Hsp70 of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TBHsp70) has been shown to have an anti-inflammatory role on rodent autoimmune arthritis models, and the protective effects were demonstrated to be dependent on interleukin-10 (IL-10). We have previously observed that TBHsp70 inhibited maturation of dendritic cells (DCs) and induced IL-10 production by these cells, as well as in synovial fluid cells.

Abstract: to evaluate the association between cardiovascular risk factors (cvrf) during postmenopausal years and previous menstrual irregularity during reproductive years, we performed a case-control study in 414 postmenopausal women (mean age 60.4 ± 5.5 years; bmi 25.3 ± 4.7 kg/m2). the variables assessed were: menstrual cycle characteristics at age 20-35y (independent) and records of arterial hypertension, dyslipidemia, diabetes mellitus, and coronary heart disease (dependent). statistical analysis used the chi-square test and logistic regression, adjusting for potential confounders for cardiovascular risk, with significance set at 5%. women reporting previous menstrual irregularity were associated with increased risk for some cvrf [adjusted odds ratio (or) 2.14; ci-95%= 1.02-4.48], when compared with those reporting regular menstrual cycles. stratified analysis demonstrated significant associations of previous menstrual irregularity with: arterial hypertension [or= 2.74; ci-95%= 1.39-5.41), hypercholesterolemia (or= 2.32; ci-95%= 1.17-4.59), hypertriglyceridemia (or= 2.09; ci-95%=1.10-4.33), and coronary angioplasty (or= 6.82; ci-95%= 1.44-32.18). these data suggest that a prior history of menstrual irregularity, as indicative of polycystic ovary syndrome, may be related to increased risk for cvd during postmenopausal years.

Abstract: in this study it is shown the incidence of brain diseases in campina grande pb, brazil taking account hospitalizations under prospective payments. neurologic affections were classified according to icd-9. it is demonstrated that 3.09% of hospitalizations are due to brain diseases, mainly cerebrovascular disorders. it is evident that campina grande is included in brazil's north-east average of brain diseases representation, and this result contrasts with nation-wide results because of regional differences. mental disturbances were not included in this study because of the difficulty in obtaining data; they were classified in the other diseases group.
Isolated and painless (?) atrophy of the infraspinatus muscle: left handed versus right handed volleyball players
C?elho, Thiago D. Gon?alves;
Arquivos de Neuro-Psiquiatria , 1994, DOI: 10.1590/S0004-282X1994000400014
Abstract: the suprascapular nerve originates from the upper trunk of the brachial plexus or less frequently from the root of c5. it runs a short way and crosses the suprascapular notch. it innervates the supraspinatus muscle and the acromioclavicular and glenohumeral joints. then, it crosses the lateral edge of the spine of the scapula passing through the spinoglenoid notch, and innervates the infraspinatus muscle. these are potential sites of injury to the suprascapular nerve. three cases of suprascapular nerve entrapment causing an isolated infraspinatus muscle atrophy in volleyball players were studied. it is suggested the hypothesis that the nature of the smash, in which the athlete uses the arm violently, more than does in volleyball service or in the art of reception, is the key to the pathogenesis of the lesion in volleyball players.
Equilibrium properties of charged microgels: a Poisson-Boltzmann-Flory approach

Physics , 2014, DOI: 10.1063/1.4903746
Abstract: The equilibrium properties of ionic microgels are investigated using a combination of the Poisson-Boltzmann and Flory theories. Swelling behavior, density profiles, and effective charges are all calculated in a self-consistent way. Special attention is given to the effects of salinity on these quantities. It is found that the equilibrium microgel size is strongly influenced by the amount of added salt. Increasing the salt concentration leads to a considerable reduction of the microgel volume, which therefore releases its internal material -- solvent molecules and dissociated ions -- into the solution. Finally, the question of charge renormalization of ionic microgels in the context of the cell model is briefly addressed.

Abstract: Dental pathologies can be caused by plaque-forming bacteria and yeast, which reside in the oral cavity. The bacteria growing in dental plaque, a naturally occurring biofilm, display increased resistance to antimicrobial agents. The objective was the evaluation of a preclinical assay of medicinal plants of the semiarid region from the northeast against oral pathogenic microorganism, aiming at bioprospecting a new product. The selection of plant material for this study was based on the ethnobotanical data on the traditional use of plants from the semiarid region. The thirty extracts were subjected to the determination of antibiofilm activity against gram-positive, gram-negative bacteria and yeast. The hydroalcoholic extract which showed positive antibiofilm activity against most of the microorganisms tested in agar diffusion assay was further tested for the determination of minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and Bioassay with Artemia salina. Plant samples tested in this study exhibited good antibiofilm activity for the treatment of oral problems. The Schinopsis brasiliensis showed greater activity for Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus, but toxicity against Artemia salina.
