    In vitro experiments have shown that GRASP65 (GORASP1) and GRASP55 (GORASP2) proteins function in stacking Golgi cisternae. However, in vivo depletion of GORASPs in metazoans has given equivocal results. We have generated ...
  • Rovida, Costanza; Pastor Maeso, Manuel; Hartung, Thomas (ALTEX, 2020)
    Read-across (RAx) translates available information from well-characterized chemicals to a substance for which there is a toxicological data gap. The OECD is working on case studies to probe general applicability of RAx, ...

    La pandemia por el COVID-19 nos ha encontrado desprotegidos ante la dificultad para dar una respuesta sanitaria adecuada y rápida. La red de hospitales del sistema sanitario público ha dispuesto la mayoría de los recursos ...
  • Raote, Ishier; Ernst, Andreas M.; Campelo, Felix; Rothman, James E.; Pincet, Frederic; Malhotra, Vivek (eLife, 2020)
    We have previously shown TANGO1 organises membranes at the interface of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and ERGIC/Golgi (Raote et al., 2018). TANGO1 corrals retrograde membranes at ER exit sites to create an export conduit. ...
  • Aranda Aragón, Sergio; Borràs, Eva; Sabidó Aguadé, Eduard, 1981-; Di Croce, Luciano (Elsevier, 2020)
    De novo identification of chromatin interactors can reveal unexpected pathways relevant to physiology and human disease. Inspired by the DNA mediated chromatin pull-down (Dm-ChP) technology (also known as iPOND [isolation ...

    Ewing sarcoma (EwS) is an aggressive tumor that affects adolescents and young adults. EwS is defined by a chromosomal translocation, EWSR1-FLI1 being the most common, that causes genome reprogramming through remodeling of ...
  • Conrad, Thomas; Ntini, Evgenia; Lang, Benjamin; Cozzuto, Luca; Andersen, Jesper B.; Marquardt, Jens U.; Ponomarenko, Julia; Tartaglia, Gian Gaetano; Vang Ørom, Ulf A. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press (CSHL Press), 2020)
    MicroRNA expression is important for gene regulation and deregulated microRNA expression is often observed in diseases such as cancer. The processing of primary microRNA transcripts is an important regulatory step in ...
  • Vogelezang, Suzanne; Vilor Tejedor, Natàlia, 1988-; Bustamante Pineda, Mariona; Vrijheid, Martine; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Felix, Janine Frédérique (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2020)
    The genetic background of childhood body mass index (BMI), and the extent to which the well-known associations of childhood BMI with adult diseases are explained by shared genetic factors, are largely unknown. We performed ...
  • Muñoz-Aguirre, Manuel; Ntasis, Vasilis F.; Rojas, Santiago; Guigó Serra, Roderic (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2020)
    The development of increasingly sophisticated methods to acquire high-resolution images has led to the generation of large collections of biomedical imaging data, including images of tissues and organs. Many of the current ...
  • Gaspari, Erika; Malachowski, Antoni; García Morales, Luis; Burgos, Raul; Serrano Pubull, Luis, 1982-; Martins dos Santos, Vitor; Suarez-Diez, Maria (Nature Research, 2020)
    Mycoplasma pneumoniae is a slow-growing, human pathogen that causes atypical pneumonia. Because it lacks a cell wall, many antibiotics are ineffective. Due to its reduced genome and dearth of many biosynthetic pathways, ...
  • Whalley, Justin P.; Stobbe, Miranda D.; Beltran, Sergi; Gut, Marta; Trotta, Jean-Remi; Gut, Ivo Glynne (Nature Research, 2020)
    Bringing together cancer genomes from different projects increases power and allows the investigation of pan-cancer, molecular mechanisms. However, working with whole genomes sequenced over several years in different ...
