  • Maldonado, Rafael; Rodríguez de Fonseca, Fernando (Society for Neuroscience, 2002)
    The use of cannabis sativa preparations as recreational drugs can be traced back to the earliest civilizations. However, animal models of cannabinoid addiction allowing the exploration of neural correlates of cannabinoid ...
  • Berrendero Díaz, Fernando; Kieffer, Brigitte L.; Maldonado, Rafael (Society for Neuroscience, 2002)
    The involvement of μ-opioid receptors in different behavioral responses elicited by nicotine was explored by using μ-opioid receptor knock-out mice. The acute antinociceptive responses induced by nicotine in the tail-immersion ...
  • Parra Farré, Genís; Agarwal, Pankaj; Abril Ferrando, Josep Francesc; Wiehe, Thomas; Fickett, James W.; Guigó Serra, Roderic (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press-CSHL Press, 2003)
    The completion of the sequencing of the mouse genome promises to help predict human genes with greater accuracy. While current ab initio gene prediction programs are remarkably sensitive (i.e., they predict at least a ...
  • Guigó Serra, Roderic (Centre de Supercomputació de Catalunya, 2003)
  • García Martínez, Montse; Schiaffino, Anna; Fernández, Esteve; Martí, Mercè; Saltó i Cerezuela, Esteve; Pérez Albarracín, Glòria; Peris, Mercè; Borrell, Carmen; Nieto, F. Javier; Borrás, Josep M. (BioMed Central, 2003)
    Background: The aim of this report is to describe the main characteristics of the design, including response rates, of the Cornella Health Interview Survey Follow-up Study. Methods: The original cohort consisted of 2,500 ...
  • Albà Soler, Mar; Guigó Serra, Roderic (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press-CSHL Press, 2004)
    Amino acid tandem repeats, also called homopolymeric tracts, are extremely abundant in eukaryotic proteins. To gain insight into the genome-wide evolution of these regions in mammals, we analyzed the repeat content in a ...
  • Aso Pérez, Ester; Maldonado, Rafael; Murtra, Patricia; Balerio, Graciela N.; Berrendero Díaz, Fernando (Wiley-Blackwell, 2004)
    The possible interactions between Delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and nicotine remain unclear in spite of the current association of cannabis and tobacco in humans. The aim of the present study was to explore the ...
  • Ozaita Mintegui, Andrés; Petit-Jacques, Jerome; Völgyi, Béla; Ho, Chi Sun; Joho, Rolf H.; Bloomfield, Stewart A.; Rudy, Bernardo (Society for Neuroscience, 2004)
    Direction-selective retinal ganglion cells show an increased activity evoked by light stimuli moving in the preferred direction. This selectivity is governed by direction-selective inhibition from starburst amacrine cells ...
  • Fiz, José Antonio; Jané, Raimon; Torres, Abel; Morera, Josep; Galdiz, Batxi; Gea Guiral, Joaquim; Grassino, Alejandro (BioMed Central, 2004)
    Background: Non-invasive monitoring of respiratory muscle function is an area of increasing research interest, resulting in the appearance of new monitoring devices, one of these being piezoelectric contact sensors. The ...
  • Wahl, Matthias B.; Caldwell, Randolph B.; Kierzek, Andrzej M.; Arakawa, Hirosi; Eyras Jiménez, Eduardo; Hubner, Nina; Jung, Christian; Soeldenwagner, Manuel; Cervelli, Manuela; Wang, Yan-Dong; Liebscher, Volkmar; Buerstedde, Jean-Marie (BioMed Central, 2004)
    Background: The understanding of whole genome sequences in higher eukaryotes depends to a large degree on the reliable definition of transcription units including exon/intron structures, translated open reading frames ...
  • Lalueza Fox, Carles; Castresana, José; Sampietro Bergua, Mª Lourdes; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975-; Alcover, Josep Antoni; Bertranpetit, Jaume (BioMed Central, 2005)
    Background: Myotragus balearicus was an endemic bovid from the Balearic Islands (Western Mediterranean) that became extinct around 6,000-4,000 years ago. The Myotragus evolutionary lineage became isolated in the islands ...
  • Taskov, Kalin; Chapple, Charles E.; Kryukov, Gregory V.; Castellano, Sergi; Lobanov, Alexey V.; Korotkov, Konstantin V.; Guigó Serra, Roderic; Gladyshev, Vadim N. (Oxford University Press, 2005)
    Selenocysteine (Sec) is co-translationally inserted into selenoproteins in response to codon UGA with the help of the selenocysteine insertion sequence (SECIS) element. The number of selenoproteins in animals varies, with ...
  • Abril Ferrando, Josep Francesc; Castelo, Robert; Guigó Serra, Roderic (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press-CSHL Press, 2005)
    We have carried out an initial analysis of the dynamics of the recent evolution of the splice-sites sequences on a large collection of human, rodent (mouse and rat), and chicken introns. Our results indicate that the ...
  • Eyras Jiménez, Eduardo; Reymond, Alexandre; Castelo, Robert; Bye, Jacqueline M.; Cámara, Francisco; Flicek, Paul; Huckle, Elizabeth J.; Parra Farré, Genís; Shteynberg, David D.; Wyss, Carine; Rogers, Jane; Antonarakis, Stylianos E.; Birney, Ewan; Guigó Serra, Roderic; Brent, Michael R. (BioMed Central, 2005)
    Background: Despite the continuous production of genome sequence for a number of organisms, reliable, comprehensive, and cost effective gene prediction remains problematic. This is particularly true for genomes for which ...
  • Castelo, Robert; Reymond, Alexandre; Wyss, Carine; Cámara, Francisco; Parra Farré, Genís; Antonarakis, Stylianos E.; Guigó Serra, Roderic; Eyras Jiménez, Eduardo (Oxford University Press, 2005)
    The recent availability of the chicken genome sequence poses the question of whether there are human protein-coding genes conserved in chicken that are currently not included in the human gene catalog. Here, we show, using ...
  • Berrendero Díaz, Fernando; Mendizábal, Victoria; Robledo, M. Patricia; Galeote González, Lola; Bilkei Gorzo, Andras; Zimmer, Andreas; Maldonado, Rafael (Society for Neuroscience, 2005)
    It has been shown previously that the endogenous opioid system may be involved in the behavioral effects of nicotine. In the present study, the participation of endogenous enkephalins on nicotine responses has been ...
  • Puente, Xosé S.; Velasco, Gloria; Gutiérrez Fernández, Ana; Bertranpetit, Jaume; King, Mary Claire; López Otín, Carlos (BioMed Central, 2006)
    Background: Cancer is a major medical problem in modern societies. However, the incidence of this disease in non-human primates is very low. To study whether genetic differences between human and chimpanzee could contribute ...

(BioMed Central, 2006)
    Background: We present the results of EGASP, a community experiment to assess the state-ofthe- art in genome annotation within the ENCODE regions, which span 1% of the human genome sequence. The experiment had two major ...
  • Aso Pérez, Ester; Balerio, Graciela N.; Maldonado, Rafael (Springer, 2006)
