Cockayne syndrome is an autosomal recessive multisystem disorder characterized principally by neurological and sensory impairment, cachectic dwarfism, and photosensitivity. This rare disease is linked to mutations in the CSB/ERCC6 and CSA/ERCC8 genes encoding proteins involved in the transcription-coupled DNA repair pathway. The clinical spectrum of(More)
The haploid DNA content and karyotypes of eight species of Blennius are studied. Six species had 2n=48, two had 2n=46. The karyotypes of these species have been compared with those of related species of the genus and it was suggested that pericentric inversions played an important role in the evolution of their karyotypes. No sex chromosomes were(More)
The human EAG1 potassium channel belongs to the superfamily of KCNH voltage-gated potassium channels that have roles in cardiac repolarization and neuronal excitability. EAG1 is strongly inhibited by Ca2+/calmodulin (CaM) through a mechanism that is not understood. We determined the binding properties of CaM with each one of three previously identified(More)
Experiments by Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) illustrate the relevance of lectin density for the reliable evaluation of binding efficiencies in surface-based multivalent carbohydrate recognition. The difference between affinity data obtained by solution and surface-based experiments is also stressed.
Multivalency is a key, ubiquitous phenomenon in nature characterized by a complex combination of binding mechanisms, with special relevance in carbohydrate-lectin recognition. Herein we introduce an original surface plasmon resonance kinetic approach to analyze multivalent interactions that has been validated with dendrimers as monodisperse multivalent(More)
Sugar-oligoamides have been designed and synthesized as structurally simple carbohydrate-based ligands to study carbohydrate-DNA interactions. The general design of the ligands 1-3 has been done as to favor the bound conformation of Distamycin-type gamma-linked covalent dimers which is a hairpin conformation. Indeed, NMR analysis of the sugar-oligoamides in(More)
In this paper the development of the first direct surface plasmon resonance (SPR) immunoassay for the detection of benzoylecgonine (BZE) is described. Immunosensor chips consisting of a high affinity monoclonal anti-BZE-antibody (anti-BZE-Ab) immobilized at high density to a sensor chip were prepared. First, BZE detection in Hepes buffer was achieved by(More)
The phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) node represents a metabolic crossroad where carbon is distributed into several metabolic pathways. This node is specially important for the industrial production of several metabolites. Depending on the organism and its habitat, the enzymes that utilize PEP are regulated by different effectors, and each branch of the node is(More)
The main goal of the current work was to infer the demographic history of seven Spanish goat breeds (Malagueña, Murciano-Granadina, Florida, Palmera, Mallorquina, Bermeya and Blanca de Rasquera) based on genome-wide diversity data generated with the Illumina Goat SNP50 BeadChip (population size, N = 176). Five additional populations from Europe (Saanen and(More)
The influence of the different side chain residues on the thermodynamic and kinetic parameters for complexation reactions of the Co2+ and Ni2+ ions has been investigated by using the isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) technique supported by potentiometric titration data. The study was concerned with the 2 common tripodal aminocarboxylate ligands,(More)
