  • Eyras Jiménez, Eduardo; Lozano, Yolanda (Elsevier, 2000)
    We construct the effective action of certain exotic branes in the Type II theories which are not predicted by their space-time supersymmetry algebras. We analyze in detail the case of the NS-7B brane, S-dual to the D7-brane, ...

  • Güney, Emre, 1983-; Oliva Miguel, Baldomero (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2012)
    Complex genetic disorders often involve products of multiple genes acting cooperatively. Hence, the pathophenotype is the outcome of the perturbations in the underlying pathways, where gene products cooperate through various ...

    Twitter has been proposed by several studies as a means to track public health trends such as influenza and Ebola outbreaks by analyzing user messages in order to measure different population features and interests. In ...
  • Espinosa Angarica, Vladimir; Orozco, Modesto; Sancho, Javier (Oxford University Press, 2016)
    Familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), a genetic disorder with a prevalence of 0.2%, represents a high-risk factor to develop cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. The majority and most severe FH cases are associated ...
  • Häkkinen, Suvi T.; Moyano Claramunt, Elisabet; Cusidó Vidal, Rosa M.; Oksman-Caldentey, Kirsi-Marja (Frontiers, 2016)
    Plants remain a major source of new drugs, leads and fine chemicals. Cell cultures deriving from plants offer a fascinating tool to study plant metabolic pathways and offer large scale production systems for valuable ...
  • Barbeira, Alvaro N.; Dickinson, Scott P.; Bonazzola, Rodrigo; Zheng, Jiamao; Wheeler, Heather E.; Torres, Jason M.; Torstenson, Eric S.; Shah Kaanan P.; Garcia, Tzintzuni; Edwards, Todd L.; Stahl, Eli A.; Huckins, Laura M.; GTEx Consortium; Nicolae, Dan L.; Cox, Nancy J.; Im, Hae Kyung (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
    Scalable, integrative methods to understand mechanisms that link genetic variants with phenotypes are needed. Here we derive a mathematical expression to compute PrediXcan (a gene mapping approach) results using summary ...
  • Invergo, Brandon M., 1982-; Montanucci, Ludovica, 1978-; Koch, Karl-Wilhelm; Bertranpetit, Jaume, 1952-; Dell'Orco, Daniele (BioMed Central, 2013)
    Phototransduction in vertebrate photoreceptor cells represents a paradigm of signaling pathways mediated by G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), which share common modules linking the initiation of the cascade to the final ...
  • Turner, Michelle C.; Nieuwenhuijsen, Mark J.; Vrijheid, Martine; Kogevinas, Manolis; EXPOsOMICS Consortium (BioMed Central, 2018)
    The final meeting of the EXPOsOMICS project "Final Policy Workshop and Stakeholder Consultation" took place 28-29 March 2017 to present the main results of the project and discuss their implications both for future research ...
  • Casas Sanahuja, Maribel; Valvi, Damaskini, 1983-; Ballesteros-Gomez, Ana; Gascon Merlos, Mireia, 1984-; Fernandez, Mariana F.; García Esteban, Raquel; Iñiguez, Carmen; Martínez Muriano, David; Murcia, Mario; Monfort Mercader, Núria, 1983-; Luque, Noelia; Rubio, Soledad; Ventura Alemany, Rosa; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Vrijheid, Martine (National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, 2016)
    BACKGROUND: Prenatal exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates may affect fetal growth; however, previous findings are inconsistent and based on few studies. OBJECTIVES: We assessed whether prenatal exposure to BPA and ...
  • Lubczynska, Malgorzata Joanna; Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Tiemeier, Henning; Porta, Daniela; Kasper-Sonnenberg, Monika; Jaddoe, Vincent W.
