  • Rodríguez Galindo, Miguel; Casillas, Sònia; Weghorn, Donate; Barbadilla, Antonio (Nature Research, 2020)
    A main assumption of molecular population genetics is that genomic mutation rate does not depend on sequence function. Challenging this assumption, a recent study has found a reduction in the mutation rate in exons compared ...
  • Vilor Tejedor, Natàlia, 1988-; Ikram, Mohammad Arfan; Roshchupkin, Gennady V.; Vinke, Elisabeth J.; Vernooij, Meike W.; Adams, Hieab H. (Frontiers, 2020)
    Background: Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a childhood-onset disorder that can persist into adult life. Most genetic studies have focused on investigating biological mechanisms of ADHD during childhood. ...

    Bacillus firmus I-1582 is approved in Europe for the management of Meloidogyne on vegetable crops. However, little information about its modes of action and temperature requirements is available, despite the effect of these ...

    We hypothesized that treatment with pharmacological agents known to increase sirtuin-1 activity (resveratrol and curcumin) may enhance muscle regeneration. In limb muscles of mice (C57BL/6J, 10 weeks) exposed to reloading ...
  • Dierssen, Mara; Fructuoso, Marta; Martínez de Lagrán Cabredo, María; Perluigi, Marzia; Barone, Eugenio (Frontiers, 2020)
    Down syndrome (DS) is the most frequent chromosomal abnormality that causes intellectual disability, resulting from the presence of an extra complete or segment of chromosome 21 (HSA21). In addition, trisomy of HSA21 ...
  • Filion, Guillaume; Cortini, Ruggero; Zorita, Eduard (Frontiers, 2020)
    The increasing throughput of DNA sequencing technologies creates a need for faster algorithms. The fate of most reads is to be mapped to a reference sequence, typically a genome. Modern mappers rely on heuristics to gain ...

    Exon skipping is an effective strategy for the treatment of many Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) mutations. Natural exon skipping observed in several DMD cases can help in identifying novel therapeutic tools. Here, we ...

    Foxp3+ regulatory T cells (Tregs) are potent suppressor cells, essential for the maintenance of immune homeostasis. Most Tregs develop in the thymus and are then released into the immune periphery. However, some Tregs ...
  • Weber, Marc; Burgos, Raul; Yus, Eva; Yang, Jae-Seong; Lluch-Senar, Maria 1982-; Serrano Pubull, Luis, 1982- (EMBO Press, 2020)
    The C-terminal sequence of a protein is involved in processes such as efficiency of translation termination and protein degradation. However, the general relationship between features of this C-terminal sequence and levels ...
  • Touceda-Suárez, María; Kita, Elizabeth M.; Acemel, Rafael D.; Firbas, Panos N.; Magri, Marta S.; Naranjo, Silvia; Tena, Juan J.; Gómez Skarmeta, José Luis; Maeso, Ignacio; Irimia, Manuel (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2020)
    We investigated how the two rounds of whole-genome duplication that occurred at the base of the vertebrate lineage have impacted ancient microsyntenic associations involving developmental regulators (known as genomic ...
  • Fernández, Rosa; Marcet Houben, Marina; Legeai, Fabrice; Richard, Gautier; Robin, Stéphanie; Wucher, Valentin; Pegueroles Queralt, Maria Cinta; Gabaldón Estevan, Juan Antonio, 1973-; Tagu, Denis (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2020)
    Ecology of insects is as wide as their diversity, which reflects their high capacity of adaptation in most of the environments of our planet. Aphids, with over 4,000 species, have developed a series of adaptations including ...
  • Tian, Tian V.; Vidal Ocabo, Enrique; Graf, T. (Thomas); Stik, Grégoire (MyJove Corporation, 2020)
    During mammalian development, cell fates are determined through the establishment of regulatory networks that define the specificity, timing, and spatial patterns of gene expression. Embryoid bodies (EBs) derived from ...
  • Hollmann, Nele Merret; Jagtap, Pravin Kumar Ankush; Masiewicz, Pawel; Guitart, Tanit; Simon, Bernd; Provaznik, Jan; Stein, Frank; Haberkant, Per; Sweetapple, Lara Jayne; Villacorta, Laura; Mooijman, Dylan; Benes, Vladimir; Savitski, Mikhail M.; Gebauer, Fátima; Hennig, Janosch (Elsevier, 2020)
    RNA-binding proteins (RBPs) commonly feature multiple RNA-binding domains (RBDs), which provide these proteins with a modular architecture. Accumulating evidence supports that RBP architectural modularity and adaptability ...
