  • Bolognesi, Benedetta; Faure, Andre J.; Seuma, Mireia; Schmiedel, Jörn M.; Tartaglia, Gian Gaetano; Lehner, Ben, 1978- (Nature Research, 2019)
    Insoluble protein aggregates are the hallmarks of many neurodegenerative diseases. For example, aggregates of TDP-43 occur in nearly all cases of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). However, whether aggregates cause ...
  • Chammas, Paul, 1992-; Mocavini, Ivano; Di Croce, Luciano (Nature Research, 2020)
    Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) is a key epigenetic multiprotein complex involved in the regulation of gene expression in metazoans. PRC2 is formed by a tetrameric core that endows the complex with histone methyltransferase ...
  • Blanco, Enrique; González Ramírez, Mar; Alcaine Colet, Anna, 1992-; Aranda Aragón, Sergio; Di Croce, Luciano (Elsevier, 2020)
    An intricate molecular machinery is at the core of gene expression regulation in every cell. During the initial stages of organismal development, the coordinated activation of diverse transcriptional programs is crucial ...

    HIV-1 recurrently targets active genes and integrates in the proximity of the nuclear pore compartment in CD4+ T cells. However, the genomic features of these genes and the relevance of their transcriptional activity for ...
  • Ku, Chuan; Sebé-Pedrós, Arnau (Royal Society, 2019)
    Understanding the diversity and evolution of eukaryotic microorganisms remains one of the major challenges of modern biology. In recent years, we have advanced in the discovery and phylogenetic placement of new eukaryotic ...
  • de Mendoza, Alex; Sebé-Pedrós, Arnau (Elsevier, 2019)
    Transcription factors (TFs) have a central role in genome regulation directing gene transcription through binding specific DNA sequences. Eukaryotic genomes encode a large diversity of TF classes, each defined by unique ...
  • Ivancevich, Juan Carlos; Antó i Boqué, Josep Maria; Bousquet, Jean (Colegio Mexicano de Inmunología Clínica y Alergia, A.C., 2019)
    El impacto sanitario y económico de las enfermedades alérgicas está aumentando rápidamente y se necesitan cambios en las estrategias para su manejo. Su influencia reduce al menos en un tercio la capacidad de desempeño ...
  • Liu, Huanle; Begik, Oguzhan; Lucas, Morghan C.; Ramirez, Jose Miguel; Mason, Christopher E.; Wiener, David; Schwartz, Schraga; Mattick, John S.; Smith, Martin A.; Novoa, Eva Maria (Nature Research, 2019)
    The epitranscriptomics field has undergone an enormous expansion in the last few years; however, a major limitation is the lack of generic methods to map RNA modifications transcriptome-wide. Here, we show that using direct ...
  • Pedone, Elisa, 1985-; Postiglione, Lorena; Aulicino, Francesco, 1987-; Rocca, Dan L.; Montes Olivas, Sandra; Khazim, Mahmoud; di Bernardo, Diego; Cosma, Maria Pia, 1970-; Marucci, Lucia (Nature Research, 2019)
    Cellular systems have evolved numerous mechanisms to adapt to environmental stimuli, underpinned by dynamic patterns of gene expression. In addition to gene transcription regulation, modulation of protein levels, dynamics ...
  • Casas, Ana I.; Hassan, Ahmed; Larsen, Simon J.; Gomez-Rangel, Vanessa; Elbatreek, Mahmoud; Kleikers, Pamela W. M.; Guney, Emre; Egea, Javier; López, Manuela G.; Baumbach, Jan; Schmidt, Harald H.H.W. (National Academy of Sciences, 2019)
    Drug discovery faces an efficacy crisis to which ineffective mainly single-target and symptom-based rather than mechanistic approaches have contributed. We here explore a mechanism-based disease definition for network ...
  • Glover, Natasha; Dessimoz, Christophe; Ebersberger, Ingo; Forslund, Sofia K.; Gabaldón Estevan, Juan Antonio, 1973-; Huerta Cepas, Jaime; Martin, Maria-Jesus; Muffato, Matthieu; Patricio, Mateus; Pereira, Cecile; Sousa da Silva, Alan; Wang, Yan-Dong; Sonnhammer, Erik; Thomas, Paul D. (Oxford University Press, 2019)
    Gene families evolve by the processes of speciation (creating orthologs), gene duplication (paralogs), and horizontal gene transfer (xenologs), in addition to sequence divergence and gene loss. Orthologs in particular play ...
  • Saus Martínez, Ester; Iraola Guzman, Susana; Willis, Jesse R.; Brunet-Vega, Anna; Gabaldón Estevan, Juan Antonio, 1973- (Elsevier, 2019)
    The gastrointestinal tract harbors most of the microbiota associated with humans. In recent years, there has been a surge of interest in assessing the relationships between the gut microbiota and several gut alterations, ...
  • Fa-Binefa, Manel; Clarà Velasco, Alberto; Pérez-Fernández, Silvia; Grau Magaña, Maria; Dégano, Irene R.; Martí-Lluch, Ruth; Ramos, Rafel; Marrugat de la Iglesia, Jaume; Elosua Llanos, Roberto (Elsevier, 2019)
    Early smoking onset age (SOA) is a public health concern with scant empirical evidence of its role in health outcomes. The study had two aims: i) to assess whether an early SOA was associated with the risk of fatal and ...
  • Courthéoux, Thibault; Reboutier, David; Vazeille, Thibaut; Cremet, Jean-Yves; Benaud, Christelle; Vernos, Isabelle, 1959-; Prigent, Claude (Company of Biologists, 2019)
    During mitosis, the cell sequentially constructs two microtubule-based spindles to ensure faithful segregation of chromosomes. A bipolar spindle first pulls apart the sister chromatids, then a central spindle further ...
  • Pinder, Corinne; Matsuo, Yuzy; Maurer, Sebastian; Toda, Takashi (Company of Biologists, 2019)
    High-fidelity chromosome segregation relies on proper microtubule regulation. Kinesin-8 has been shown to destabilise microtubules to reduce metaphase spindle length and chromosome movements in multiple species. XMAP215/chTOG ...
