    BACKGROUND: Many risk behaviours in adolescence are socially patterned. However, it is unclear to what extent socioeconomic position (SEP) influences adolescent drinking in various parts of Europe. We examined how alcohol ...

    Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) offers new possibilities to address biological and medical questions. However, systematic comparisons of the performance of diverse scRNA-seq protocols are lacking. We generated data ...

    The spatiotemporal regulation of gene expression is central for cell-lineage specification during embryonic development and is achieved through the combinatorial action of transcription factors/co-factors and epigenetic ...
  • Hayes, Peran; Solon, Jérôme (Elsevier, 2017)
    Dorsal closure, a late-embryogenesis process, consists in the sealing of an epidermal gap on the dorsal side of the Drosophila embryo. Because of its similarities with wound healing and neural tube closure in humans, it ...
  • Cortini, Ruggero; Cheng, Xiaolin; Smith, Jeremy C. (IOP Publishing, 2017)
    Electrostatic interactions between DNA molecules have been extensively studied experimentally and theoretically, but several aspects (e.g. its role in determining the pitch of the cholesteric DNA phase) still remain unclear. ...
  • González Vela, María Del Carmen; Derdak, Sophia; Beltran, Sergi; Gut, Marta; Gut, Ivo Glynne; Vaqué, José Pedro (Elsevier, 2017)
    Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a highly malignant neuroendocrine tumor of the skin whose molecular pathogenesis is not completely understood, despite the role that Merkel cell polyomavirus can play in 55-90% of cases. To ...
  • Almeida Carvalho, Maria J.; Braun, Andreas, 1983-; Louis, Matthieu; Zlatic, Marta (Company of Biologists, 2017)
    Mapping brain function to brain structure is a fundamental task for neuroscience. For such an endeavour, the Drosophila larva is simple enough to be tractable, yet complex enough to be interesting. It features about 10,000 ...
  • Tonne, Cathryn; Milà, Carles; Fecht, Daniela; Alvarez, Mar; Gulliver, John; Smith, James; Beevers, Sean; Anderson, Hugh Ross; Kelly, Frank (Elsevier, 2018)
    BACKGROUND: Transport-related air and noise pollution, exposures linked to adverse health outcomes, varies within cities potentially resulting in exposure inequalities. Relatively little is known regarding inequalities in ...
  • Vila Rodríguez, Javier, 1974-; Bowman, Joseph D.; Figuerola, Jordi; Moriña, David; Kincl, Laurel; Richardson, Lesley; Cardis, Elisabeth (Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
    To estimate occupational exposures to electromagnetic fields (EMF) for the INTEROCC study, a database of source-based measurements extracted from published and unpublished literature resources had been previously constructed. ...
  • Salas, Lucas A.; Font Ribera, Laia; Bustamante Pineda, Mariona; Sumoy, Lauro; Grimalt Obrador, Joan; Bonnin, Sarah; Aguilar Morón, María A.; Mattlin, Heidi; Hummel, Manuela; Ferrer Del Alamo, Ana; Kogevinas, Manolis; Villanueva Belmonte, Cristina (Elsevier, 2017)
    Exposure to disinfection by-products (DBP) such as trihalomethanes (THM) in swimming pools has been linked to adverse health effects in humans, but their biological mechanisms are unclear. We evaluated short-term changes ...
  • Sentís, Alexis; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Dalmau Bueno, Albert; Andiarena, Ainara; Ballester Díez, Ferran; Cirach, Marta; Estarlich, Marisa; Fernández-Somoano, Ana; Ibarluzea, Jesús; Íñiguez, Carmen; Lertxundi, Aitana; Tardón, Adonina; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Vrijheid, Martine; Guxens Junyent, Mònica (Elsevier, 2017)
    BACKGROUND: Prenatal and postnatal exposure to air pollution has been linked to cognitive impairment in children, but very few studies have assessed its association with attentional function. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the ...
  • Corrales Berjano, Marc, 1984-; Rosado, Aránzazu; Cortini, Ruggero; van Arensbergen, Joris; van Steensel, Bas; Filion, Guillaume (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press (CSHL Press), 2017)
    Housekeeping genes of animal genomes cluster in the same chromosomal regions. It has long been suggested that this organization contributes to their steady expression across all the tissues of the organism. Here, we show ...
  • Chiva, Cristina; Sabido Aguade, Eduard (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2017)
    Targeted proteomics methods in their different flavors rely on the use of a few peptides as proxies for protein quantitation, which need to be specified either prior to or after data acquisition. However, in contrast with ...
  • Borràs, Eva; Sabido Aguade, Eduard (Wiley, 2017)
    Targeted proteomics has gained significant popularity in mass spectrometry-based protein quantification as a method to detect proteins of interest with high sensitivity, quantitative accuracy and reproducibility. However, ...

(Thomas) (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
    Chromosomal architecture is known to influence gene expression, yet its role in controlling cell fate remains poorly understood. Reprogramming of somatic cells into pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) by the transcription factors ...
  • Grey, Corinne; Clément, Julie A.J.; Buard, Jerome; Leblanc, Benjamin; Gut, Ivo Glynne; Gut, Marta; Duret, Laurent; de Massy, Bernard D. (BioMed Central, 2017)
    In mouse and human meiosis, DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) initiate homologous recombination and occur at specific sites called hotspots. The localization of these sites is determined by the sequence-specific DNA binding ...
  • Mancino, Samantha, 1987-; Mendonça Netto, Sueli; Martín García, Elena, 1975-; Maldonado, Rafael, 1961- (Wiley, 2017)
    Several lines of evidence support that food overconsumption may be related to the role of the endogenous opioid system in the control of food palatability. The opioid system, and particularly the delta opioid receptor ...
