    The relationship between secondary metabolism and infection in pathogenic fungi has remained largely elusive. The genus Penicillium comprises a group of plant pathogens with varying host specificities and with the ability ...
  • Ecker, Simone; Merkel, Angelika; BLUEPRINT Consortium; Paul, Dirk S. (BioMed Central, 2017)
    Background: A healthy immune system requires immune cells that adapt rapidly to environmental challenges. This phenotypic plasticity can be mediated by transcriptional and epigenetic variability. Results: We apply a novel ...

    Most people in the world (∼90%) are infected by the Epstein–Barr virus (EBV), which establishes itself permanently in B cells. Infection by EBV is related to a number of diseases including infectious mononucleosis, multiple ...

    Recruitment of transcriptional and epigenetic factors to their targets is a key step in their regulation. Prominently featured in recruitment are the protein domains that bind to specific histone modifications. One such ...

    The geostrategic location of North Africa as a crossroad between three continents and as a stepping-stone outside Africa has evoked anthropological and genetic interest in this region. Numerous studies have described the ...
  • Corvelo, André; Hallegger, Martina; Smith, Christopher WJ; Eyras Jiménez, Eduardo (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2010)
    The branch point (BP) is one of the three obligatory signals required for pre-mRNA splicing. In mammals, the degeneracy of the motif combined with the lack of a large set of experimentally verified BPs complicates the task ...
  • Imamura, Minako; Mercader, Josep M.; Kadowaki, Takashi (Nature Publishing Group, 2016)
    Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified more than 80 susceptibility loci for type 2 diabetes (T2D), but most of its heritability still remains to be elucidated. In this study, we conducted a meta-analysis ...
  • Brammeld, Jonathan S.; Dalmases Massegú, Alba, 1982-; Bellosillo Paricio, Beatriz; Vidal Barrull, Joana; Montagut Viladot, Clara; McDermott, Ultan (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press (CSHL Press), 2017)
    Drug resistance is an almost inevitable consequence of cancer therapy and ultimately proves fatal for the majority of patients. In many cases, this is the consequence of specific gene mutations that have the potential to ...
