    The ATP-binding cassette efflux transporter P-glycoprotein (P-gp) is notorious for contributing to multidrug resistance in antitumor therapy. Due to its expression in many blood-organ barriers, it also influences the ...
  • Le Dily, François; Serra, François; Marti-Renom, Marc A. (Wiley, 2017)
    The genome is organized in a hierarchical fashion within the nucleus in interphase. This nonrandom folding of the chromatin fiber is thought to play important roles in the processing of the genetic information. Therefore, ...

    The main challenge for clinical management of prostate cancer is to distinguish tumors that will progress faster and will show a higher tendency to recur from the more indolent ones. We have compared expression profiles ...

    Background: Prolificacy is the most important trait influencing the reproductive efficiency of pig production systems. The low heritability and sex-limited expression of prolificacy have hindered to some extent the improvement ...

    Within the field of synthetic biology, a rational design of genetic parts should include a causal understanding of their input-output responses-the so-called transfer function-and how to tune them. However, a commonly ...

(Nature Publishing Group, 2009)
    It is generally accepted that the extent of phenotypic change between human and great apes is dissonant with the rate of molecular change. Between these two groups, proteins are virtually identical, cytogenetically there ...
  • Encinar del Dedo, Javier; Gabrielli, Natalia, 1978-; Carmona, Mercè; Ayté del Olmo, José; Hidalgo Hernando, Elena (Public Library of Science, 2015)
    Iron is an essential cofactor, but it is also toxic at high levels. In Schizosaccharomyces pombe, the sensor glutaredoxin Grx4 guides the activity of the repressors Php4 and Fep1 to mediate a complex transcriptional response ...
  • NCD Risk Factor Collaboration (NCD-RisC); Álvarez Pedrerol, Mar, 1981-; Marrugat de la Iglesia, Jaume; Porta Serra, Miquel; Sunyer Deu, Jordi (eLife, 2016)
    Being taller is associated with enhanced longevity, and higher education and earnings. We reanalysed 1472 population-based studies, with measurement of height on more than 18.6 million participants to estimate mean height ...
  • Agirre Ortiz de Guzmán, Eneritz, 1983-; Bellora Pereyra, Nicolás; Alló, Mariano; Pagès Pinós, Amadís; Bertucci, Paola; Kornblihtt, Alberto R.; Eyras Jiménez, Eduardo (BioMed Central, 2015)
    BACKGROUND: Alternative splicing is primarily controlled by the activity of splicing factors and by the elongation of the RNA polymerase II (RNAPII). Recent experiments have suggested a new complex network of splicing ...
  • Olalde, Iñigo; Lobón, Irene; Ramírez, Oscar; Marquès i Bonet, Tomàs, 1975-; Lalueza Fox, Carles, 1965- (Oxford University Press, 2015)
