In advanced cancer, including glioblastoma, the transforming growth factor β (TGF-β) pathway acts as an oncogenic factor and is considered to be a therapeutic target. Using a functional RNAi screen, we identified the deubiquitinating enzyme ubiquitin-specific peptidase 15 (USP15) as a key component of the TGF-β signaling pathway. USP15 binds to the(More)
PURPOSE To explore the metabolic profile of vitreous fluid of patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) using 1H-NMR-based metabonomic analysis. METHODS 1H-NMR spectra were acquired from vitreous samples obtained during vitrectomy from 22 patients with type 1 diabetes with PDR and from 22 nondiabetic patients with macular hole (control(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop a (1)H-nuclear magnetic resonance metabolomic approach capable of predicting the occurrence of exercise-induced ischemia in patients with suspected coronary artery disease and to identify the metabolite patterns that contribute most importantly to the prediction. In 31 patients with suspected effort angina and(More)
OBJECT Hemangiopericytomas are a rare type of brain tumor that are very similar to meningiomas in appearance and symptoms but require different treatment. It is not normally possible to distinguish between them by using magnetic resonance (MR) imaging and computerized tomography studies. However, discrimination may be possible by using in vivo MR(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a complex disease, with no definitive biomarkers available that allow clinical diagnosis; this represents a major problem for the advance of efficient drug discovery programs. A successful approach towards the understanding and treatment of AD should take into consideration this complex nature. In this sense, metabolic networks(More)
Mitochondrial alterations are critically involved in increased vulnerability to disease during aging. We investigated the contribution of mitochondria-sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) communication in cardiomyocyte functional alterations during aging. Heart function (echocardiography) and ATP/phosphocreatine (NMR spectroscopy) were preserved in hearts from old(More)

The interaction between business processes (BPs) by means of a choreography is considered as a Business-to-Business Collaboration (B2BC). This work presents a proposal to diagnose faulty activities in B2BC using choreography structural analysis. Model-based diagnosis could be achieved by using a Business-to-Business Interaction Model (B2BIM) and an(More)
BACKGROUND Small and large preclinical animal models have shown that antagomir-92a-based therapy reduces early postischemic loss of function, but its effect on postinfarction remodeling is not known. In addition, the reported remote miR-92a inhibition in noncardiac organs prevents the translation of nonvectorized miR-targeted therapy to the clinical(More)
BACKGROUND Edema is present in many heart diseases, and differentiation between intracellular (ICW) and extracellular (ECW) myocardial water compartments would be clinically relevant. In this work we developed a magnetic resonance imaging-based method to differentiate ICW and ECW and applied it to analyze ischemia-reperfusion-induced edema. METHODS AND(More)
BACKGROUND We have previously shown that meal ingestion induces cognitive perception (sensations) with a hedonic dimension (well-being) that depends on the characteristics of the meal and the appropriateness of the digestive response. The aim of the present study is to identify metabolomic biomarkers of the cognitive response to meal ingestion. METHODS In(More)
