    A hepatitis C virus (HCV) epidemic affecting HIV-infected men who have sex with men (MSM) is expanding worldwide. In spite of the improved cure rates obtained with the new direct-acting antiviral drug (DAA) combinations, ...
  • Hernáez, Álvaro; Remaley, Alan T.; Farràs Mañé, Marta; Fernández-Castillejo, Sara; Subirana Cachinero, Isaac; Schröder, Helmut, 1958-; Fernández-Mampel, Mireia; Muñoz Aguayo, Daniel; Sampson, Maureen; Solà, Rosa; Farré Albaladejo, Magí; Torre Fornell, Rafael de la; López Sabater, M. Carmen; Nyyssönen, Kristiina; Zunft, Hans-Joachim F.; Covas Planells, Maria Isabel; Fitó Colomer, Montserrat (American Society for Nutrition, 2015)
    BACKGROUND: Olive oil polyphenols have shown protective effects on cardiovascular risk factors. Their consumption decreased oxidative stress biomarkers and improved some features of the lipid profile. However, their effects ...
  • Granja, Ricardo; Fernández-Fernández, José Manuel, 1967-; Izaguirre, Victor; González García, Carmen; Ceña, Valentin (Elsevier, 1995)
    We have studied the contribution of P-type voltage-dependent Ca2+ channels to both catacholamine (CA) and ATP secretion from bovine chromaffin cells induced by high K+ or nicotine using omega-agatoxin IVA, a selective ...
  • Armaos, Alexandros; Cirillo, Davide; Tartaglia, Gian Gaetano (Oxford University Press, 2017)
    SUMMARY: Here we introduce omiXcore, a server for calculations of protein binding to large RNAs (> 500 nucleotides). Our webserver allows (i) use of both protein and RNA sequences without size restriction, (ii) pre-compiled ...
  • Albà Soler, Mar; Castresana Ruiz-Carrillo, José Ignacio (BioMed Central, 2007)
    Background: It has been shown in a variety of organisms, including mammals, that genes that appeared recently in evolution, for example orphan genes, evolve faster than older genes. Low functional constraints at the time ...
  • Joppa, Lucas N.; Montoya, José M.; Solé Vicente, Ricard, 1962-; Sanderson, Jim; Pimm, Stuart L. (Evolutionary Ecology, 2010)
    Questions: Are interaction patterns in species interaction networks different from what one expects by chance alone? In particular, are these networks nested – a pattern where resources taken by more specialized consumers ...
  • Solé Vicente, Ricard, 1962-; Amor, Daniel R.; Valverde, Sergi (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2016)
    It has been suggested that innovations occur mainly by combination: the more inventions accumulate, the higher the probability that new inventions are obtained from previous designs. Additionally, it has been conjectured ...
  • Marín López, Manuel Alejandro, 1987-; Planas Iglesias, Joan, 1980-; Aguirre Plans, Joaquim; Bonet Martínez, Jaume, 1982-; García-García, Javier, 1982-; Fernández Fuentes, Narcís; Oliva Miguel, Baldomero (Oxford University Press, 2018)
    MOTIVATION: The characterization of the protein-protein association mechanisms is crucial to understanding how biological processes occur. It has been previously shown that the early formation of non-specific encounters ...

  • Tamborero Noguera, David; López Bigas, Núria; González-Pérez, Abel (Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2013)
    A well-established approach for detecting genes involved in tumorigenesis due to copy number alterations (CNAs) is to assess the recurrence of the alteration across multiple samples. Expression data can be used to filter ...
