Distinct phosphorylation sites on the ghrelin receptor, GHSR1a, establish a code that determines the functions of ß-arrestins.
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-03-03)
The growth hormone secretagogue receptor, GHSR1a, mediates the biological activities of ghrelin, which includes the secretion of growth hormone, as well as the stimulation of appetite, food intake and maintenance of energy ...
A comparative study of the metabolic profile, insulin sensitivity and inflammatory response between organically and conventionally managed dairy cattle during the periparturient period
The number of organically managed cattle (OMC) within the European Union has increased tremendously in the last decade. However, there are still some concerns about animals under this farming system meeting their dietary ...
A pilot study to compare oxidative status between organically and conventionally managed dairy cattle during the transition period
(WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH, 2015-04-06)
The aim of this study was to assess the redox balance of organically managed dairy cattle (OMC; n = 40) during the transition period and to compare this with conventionally managed cattle (CMC; n = 22). Serum samples of ...
EEG activity represents the correctness of perceptual decisions trial-by-trial
Performance monitoring is an executive function, which we depend on for detecting and evaluating the consequences of our behavior. Although event related potentials (ERPs) have revealed the existence of differences after ...
Carborane-based design of a potent vitamin D receptor agonist
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-10-27)
The vitamin D nuclear receptor (VDR) is a potential target for cancer therapy. It is expressed in many tumors and its ligand shows anticancer actions. To combine these properties with the application of boron neutron capture ...

Modelos de enseñanza-aprendizaje. Un modelo de aplicación del Aprendizaje Basado en Problemas (ABP) en odontología infantil
Entre las diferentes técnicas de Enseñanza-Aprendizaje utilizadas en las ciencias biomédicas, una de las que mayor popularidad ha adquirido en las últimas décadas es el “Aprendizaje Basado en Problemas” (ABP), considerado ...
Effect of colostrum redox balance on the oxidative status of calves during the first 3 months of life and the relationship with passive immune acquisition
(The Veterinary Journal, 2013-10-29)
New-born calves depend upon colostrum intake for the acquisition of immunoglobulins (Ig) and other beneficial substances. However, colostrum is also a source of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Intrinsic production of ROS ...
Oxidative stress index (OSi) as a new tool to assess redox status in dairy cattle during the transition period
(Cambridge University Press, 2013-03-19)
Oxidative stress (OS) plays a key role in the initiation or progression of numerous diseases, and dairy cows undergo OS at the transition period. However, discrepancies between methodologies make it difficult to make ...
Cancer Salivary Biomarkers for Tumours Distant to the Oral Cavity
The analysis of saliva as a diagnostic approach for systemic diseases was proposed just two decades ago, but recently great interest in the field has emerged because of its revolutionary potential as a liquid biopsy and ...
