    Sirtuins are key players of metabolic stress response. Originally described as deacetylases, some sirtuins also exhibit poorly understood mono-adenosine 5'-diphosphate (ADP)-ribosyltransferase (mADPRT) activity. We report ...
  • Llorente, Carolina; Revuelta, Gema; Carrió, Mar (SAGE Publications, 2020)
    There is a general trend toward more active, broader, and more inclusive participation of different stakeholders in science. Civil society organizations' inclusion in the scientific process is being promoted. However, there ...
  • 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 ...

    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 ...
  • Mañas-García, Laura; Guitart, Maria; Duran Jordà, Xavier, 1974-; Barreiro Portela, Esther (MDPI, 2020)
    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 ...
