  • Sikora, Martin, 1976-; Laayouni, Hafid, 1968-; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Comas, David, 1969-; Bertranpetit, Jaume, 1952- (Nature Publishing Group, 2011)
    Studies of large sets of SNP data have proven to be a powerful tool in the analysis of the genetic structure of human populations. In this work, we analyze genotyping data for 2,841 SNPs in 12 Sub-Saharan African populations, ...
  • Sikora, Martin, 1976-; Laayouni, Hafid, 1968-; Menéndez, Clara; Mayor, Alfredo; Bardaji, Azucena; Sigauque, Betuel; Netea, Mihai G; Casals López, Ferran; Bertranpetit, Jaume, 1952- (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2011)
    A large proportion of the death toll associated with malaria is a consequence of malaria infection during pregnancy, causing up to 200,000 infant deaths annually. We previously published the first extensive genetic association ...

    Malaria in pregnancy forms a substantial part of the worldwide burden of malaria, with an estimated annual death toll of up to 200,000 infants, as well as increased maternal morbidity and mortality. Studies of genetic ...
  • Moreno Estrada, Andrés; Aparicio i Prat, Estel, 1986-; Sikora, Martin, 1976-; Engelken, Johannes; Ramírez Soriano, Anna; Calafell i Majó, Francesc; Bosch Fusté, Elena (BioMed Central, 2010)
    Background: The human FOXI1 gene codes for a transcription factor involved in the physiology of the inner ear, testis, and kidney. Using three interspecies comparisons, it has been suggested that this may be a gene ...

    Asparagine N-Glycosylation is one of the most important forms of protein post-translational modification in eukaryotes. This metabolic pathway can be subdivided into two parts: an upstream sub-pathway required for achieving ...
  • Sikora, Martin, 1976-; Ferrer Admetlla, Anna; Mayor, Alfredo; Bertranpetit, Jaume, 1952-; Casals López, Ferran (Springer, 2008)
    Placental malaria is a special form of malaria that causes up to 200,000 maternal and infant deaths every year. Previous studies show that two receptor molecules, hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulphate A, are mediating ...
  • Sikora, Martin, 1976- (Universitat Pompeu Fabra, 2010-06-04)
    Una de les forces selectives més fortes que han afectat a les poblacions humanes en la història més recent és el paràsit de la malària: Plasmodium falciparum, que és la causa de varis exemples d'adaptació induïda per ...

    Background: Pathogens have represented an important selective force during the adaptation of modern human populations to changing social and other environmental conditions. The evolution of the immune system has therefore ...

    Different signatures of natural selection persist over varying time scales in our genome, revealing possible episodes of adaptative evolution during human history. Here, we identify genes showing signatures of ancestral ...

    Recombination varies greatly among species, as illustrated by the poor conservation of the recombination landscape between humans and chimpanzees. Thus, shorter evolutionary time frames are needed to understand the evolution ...
