    Amyloid β-peptide (Aβ) fibril deposition on cerebral vessels produces cerebral amyloid angiopathy that appears in the majority of Alzheimer's disease patients. An early onset of a cerebral amyloid angiopathy variant called ...
  • Berrendero Díaz, Fernando, 1971-; Kieffer, Brigitte L.; Maldonado, Rafael, 1961- (Society for Neuroscience, 2002)
    The involvement of μ-opioid receptors in different behavioral responses elicited by nicotine was explored by using μ-opioid receptor knock-out mice. The acute antinociceptive responses induced by nicotine in the tail-immersion ...
  • Maldonado, Rafael, 1961-; Rodríguez de Fonseca, Fernando (Society for Neuroscience, 2002)
    The use of cannabis sativa preparations as recreational drugs can be traced back to the earliest civilizations. However, animal models of cannabinoid addiction allowing the exploration of neural correlates of cannabinoid ...
  • Sunyer Deu, Jordi; Herrero, Carmen; Ozalla, Dolores; Sala, Maria; Ribas Fitó, Núria; Grimalt Obrador, Joan; Basagaña Flores, Xavier (BioMed Central, 2002)
    Background: Porphyria cutanea tarda (PCT) is caused by hexachlorobenzene (HCB) in several species of laboratory mammals, but the human evidence is contradictory. In a study among adults of a population highly exposed to ...
  • Ghozland, Sandy; Matthes, Hans W. D.; Simonin, Frederic; Filliol, Dominique; Kieffer, Brigitte L.; Maldonado, Rafael, 1961- (Society for Neuroscience, 2002)
    Repeated THC administration produces motivational and somatic/nadaptive changes leading to dependence in rodents. To/ninvestigate the molecular basis for cannabinoid dependence/nand its possible relationship with the ...
  • Parra Farré, Genís; Agarwal, Pankaj; Abril Ferrando, Josep Francesc; Wiehe, Thomas; Fickett, James W.; Guigó Serra, Roderic (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press-CSHL Press, 2003)
    The completion of the sequencing of the mouse genome promises to help predict human genes with greater accuracy. While current ab initio gene prediction programs are remarkably sensitive (i.e., they predict at least a ...
  • Guigó Serra, Roderic (Centre de Supercomputació de Catalunya, 2003)
  • Coma Camprodón, Mireia; Vicente García, Rubén, 1978-; Busquets, Silvia; Carbó, Neus; Tamkun, Michael M.; López Soriano, Francisco J.; Argilés, Josep M.; Felipe, Antonio (Elsevier, 2003)
    Cancer-induced cachexia affects most advanced cancer patients. It is characterized by anorexia, profound metabolic dysfunctions, and severe neurological disorders. Here we show that voltage-gated potassium channel (Kv) ...
  • Guerra, Carmen; Mijimolle, Nieves; Dhawahir, Alma; Dubus, Pierre; Barradas, Marta; Serrano, Manuel; Campuzano Uceda, María Victoria; Barbacid, Mariano (Elsevier, 2003)
    We have targeted a K-ras allele in mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells to express a K-Ras(V12) oncoprotein along with a marker protein (beta-geo) from a single bicistronic transcript. Expression of this oncogenic allele requires ...
  • García Martínez, Montse; Schiaffino, Anna; Fernández, Esteve; Martí, Mercè; Saltó i Cerezuela, Esteve; Pérez Albarracín, Glòria; Peris, Mercè; Borrell i Thió, Carme; Nieto, F. Javier; Borràs, Josep M. (BioMed Central, 2003)
    Background: The aim of this report is to describe the main characteristics of the design, including response rates, of the Cornella Health Interview Survey Follow-up Study. Methods: The original cohort consisted of 2,500 ...
  • Cheung, Joseph; Estivill, Xavier, 1955-; Khaja, Razi; MacDonald, Jeffrey R; Lau, Ken; Tsui, Lap-Chee; Scherer, Stephen W. (BioMed Central, 2003)
    Background: Previous studies have suggested that recent segmental duplications, which are often involved in chromosome rearrangements underlying genomic disease, account for some 5% of the human genome. We have developed ...
