A progressive global increase in the burden of allergic diseases has affected the industrialized world over the last half century and has been reported in the literature. The clinical evidence reveals a general increase in both incidence and prevalence of respiratory diseases, such as allergic rhinitis (common hay fever) and asthma. Such phenomena may be(More)
Store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE) is a major pathway for Ca(2+) influx in non-excitable cells. Recent studies favour a conformational coupling mechanism between the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) Ca(2+) sensor STIM1 and Ca(2+) permeable channels in the plasma membrane to explain SOCE. Previous studies have reported a role for the cytoskeleton modulating the(More)
Meningeal carcinomatosis (MC) as first manifestation of a transitional cell carcinoma (TCC) of the bladder is rare. We report a 66-year-old man, smoker, who presented with two episodes of secondarily generalized partial motor seizures. The routine blood test, brain computed tomography (CT) scan, brain magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalogram were(More)
Olive oil is a major economic resource of the Mediterranean region. Olive crop management can be improved by models that forecast the variable reproductive biology of olive tree. However, the processes controlling olive harvest are complex on large scales. Here, we study the parameters that influence olive fruit production for developing accurate(More)
Traditionally phenology studies have been focused on changes through time, but there exist many instances in ecological research where it is necessary to interpolate among spatially stratified samples. The combined use of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and Geostatistics can be an essential tool for spatial analysis in phenological studies.(More)
