According to their oncogenic properties, Human Papillomaviruses (HPVs) are classified into two types: Low-Risk (LR-HPVs) and High-Risk Human Papillomaviruses (HR-HPVs). The immune system naturally controls the majority of HPV infections; however, when the HR-HPV infection is persistent, the risk of developing cervical cancer increases. Previous studies indicate that multiple-infection or coinfection with HR-HPV occurs frequently and can potentiate the development of cervical lesions. This study ...

Protein phosphorylation is a posttranslational modification that is essential for normal cellular processes; however, abnormal phosphorylation is one of the prime causes for alteration of many structural, functional, and regulatory proteins in disease conditions. In cancer, changes in the states of protein phosphorylation in tyrosine residues have been more studied than phosphorylation in threonine or serine residues, which also undergo alterations with greater predominance. In general, serine p...

In this study, we evaluated the expression profile changes of genes that intervene in the calcium signaling pathway, in young and adult Wistar rats, using the animal model of neonatal lesion in ventral hippocampus (NLVH) (a recognized animal model for schizophrenia) and compared to the group of control animals (Sham). Through microarray technology, gene expression profiles were obtained from the three brain areas (nucleus accumbens, prefrontal cortex, and hippocampus) of young male Wistar rats (...

Abstract Introduction Calcium (Ca 2+ ) leak during cardiac diastole is chiefly mediated by intracellular Ca 2+ channel/Ryanodine Receptors. Increased diastolic Ca 2+ leak has been proposed as the mechanism underlying the appearance of hereditary arrhythmias. However, little is known about alterations in diastolic Ca 2+ leak and the specific roles played by key intracellular Ca 2+ -handling proteins in hyperthyroidism, a known arrhythmogenic condition. Aim We sought to determine whether there wer...

Introduccion. La infeccion por Estreptococo del grupo A puede ocasionar secuelas post-infecciosas entre las que se han reportado un espectro de trastornos obsesivos-compulsivos y tics de aparicion en la edad pediatrica y origen autoinmune (PANDAS). No ha sido disenada una prueba inmunologica que permita diagnosticar inequivocamente estos trastornos. En este trabajo se evaluo la deteccion en suero de anticuerpos contra Enolasa cerebral humana (AE), tejido neural (AN) y Estreptococo (AS) como herr...

Trichomonas vaginalis is the causative agent of trichomonosis, a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that affects over 180 million people worldwide. This parasite is capable to infect the urogenital tract of women and men, both microenvironments might affect the expression of key genes that may be involved in the parasite pathogenesis. The processing of 3′ end of mRNA promotes mRNA stability in many eukaryotes, however in T. vaginalis this molecular machinery is under research. By means of an in ...

Streptococcus pneumoniae is a gram positive encapsulated bacterium responsible of septicaemia and upper respiratory infections in children. This pathogen requires iron to survive in the host, which it can obtain of haemoglobin (Hb) or haem. Only two Hb-binding membrane proteins have been identified up to now. However it is unknown whether this pathogen secretes proteins in order to scavenge iron from the Hb or haem. Therefore, in order to explore these possibilities, cellular growth of S. pneumo...

The maternal ancestry (mtDNA) has im- portant applications in different research fields, such as evolution, epidemiology, identification, and human popu- lation history. This is particularly interesting in Mesti- zos, which constitute the main population in Mexico (� 93%) resulting from post-Columbian admixture between Spaniards, Amerindians, and African slaves, principally. Consequently, we conducted minisequencing analysis (SNaPshot) of 11 mitochondrial single-nucleo- tide polymorphisms in 742...

Introduccion: Se ha sugerido que la Esquizofrenia puede ser inducida por �accidentes� o lesiones durante el desarrollo temprano del cerebro del individuo, que conllevan a una reduccion en las conexiones neuronales de diferentes regiones. En este trabajo, hemos evaluado las diferencias en la expresion de genes cerebrales, usando un reconocido prototipo experimental para Esquizofrenia: el modelo animal de lesion en hipocampo ventral en ratas neonatas (LHVN), respecto a animales control. Metodologi...

Entamoeba histolytica is a human pathogen, which can survive using haemoglobin (Hb) as only iron supply. Two probable haemophores (Ehhmbp26 and Ehhmbp45) are involved in iron acquisition in this parasite. However, mechanisms related to their transcriptional regulation have not been studied yet. In the present work, transcriptional profiles of both genes were evaluated in trophozoites cultures grown with different iron sources. ehhmbp26 gene was repressed totally by free iron, whereas ehhmbp45 ge...
