The bivalve mollusks Tivela mactroides and Crassostrea rhizophorae are abundant along the Venezuelan coast and are widely consumed as seafood. The globally important seagrass Thalassia testudinum is also abundant in Venezuelan. We report the concentrations of Cd, Cr, Cu, Ni, V and Zn in the soft parts of Tivela mactroides and Thalassia testudinum, and the(More)
It was previously shown that the human U1A protein, one of three U1 small nuclear ribonucleoprotein-specific proteins, autoregulates its own production by binding to and inhibiting the polyadenylation of its own pre-mRNA. The U1A autoregulatory complex requires two molecules of U1A protein to cooperatively bind a 50-nucleotide polyadenylation-inhibitory(More)
The human U1 snRNP-specific U1A protein autoregulates its own production by binding to and inhibiting the polyadenylation of its own pre-mRNA. Previous work demonstrated that a short sequence of U1A protein is essential for autoregulation and contains three distinct activities, which are (i) cooperative binding of two U1A proteins to a 50-nucleotide region(More)
Patients affected by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) show specific dysarthric clues in speech. These marks could be used to detect early symptoms and monitor the evolution of the disease in time. Classically articulation marks have been mainly based on static premises. Articulation Kinematics from acoustic correlates may help in producing measurements(More)
A 114.5m deep drilling was carried out in August 2000 in the bedrock of the Veleta peak, at 3380m in the massif of Sierra Nevada, Southern Spain. The objective of this work is to analyse temperatures at the first 60m depth of this drilling from September 2002 to August 2013 based on 11 UTL-1 thermal loggers located at different depths, together with air(More)
