This paper presents a detailed genetic study of Castanea sativa in El Bierzo, a major nut production region with interesting features. It is located within a glacial refuge at one extreme of the distribution area (northwest Spain); it has a centenary tradition of chestnut management; and more importantly, it shows an unusual degree of genetic isolation.(More)

any epistaxis hypothesis, but merely indicated when our data were consistent with other work. 5 Overall, there was a significant difference between epistaxis in upper and lower pathway cannulation, but as we indicated in the paper, the number of preformed and thermosoftened preformed tubes passing though the lower pathway was too small (16.7% and 20%,(More)
The activity of allopurinol-loaded polyethylcyanoacrylate nanoparticles against Trypanosoma cruzi was compared to that of free allopurinol using in vitro cultures of epimastigotes. Ethylcyanoacrylate nanoparticles were prepared by an emulsion polymerization process, and formulations containing different concentrations of allopurinol, polyethylcyanoacrylate(More)
Post-mortem microbiology (PMM) is an important tool in forensic pathology, assisting to determine the cause and manner of death. However, there is a lack of standardisation of PMM sampling. In order to get a better insight into the methods used, the available technical options and developmental needs, ESCMID Study Group for Forensic and Postmortem(More)
Characterization of the expression and function of genes regulating embryo development in conifers is interesting from an evolutionary point of view. However, our knowledge about the regulation of embryo development in conifers is limited. During early embryo development in Pinus species the proembyo goes through a cleavage process, named cleavage(More)
Somatic embryos can be used for propagating forest trees vegetatively, which is of great importance for capturing the genetic gain in breeding programs. However, many economically important Pinus species are difficult or impossible to propagate via somatic embryogenesis. In order to get a better understanding of the difficulties to propagate Pinus species(More)
A key step in the metabolic degradation of biphenyl xenobiotics is catechol formation upon dehydrogenation of cis- and trans-dihydrodiols in prokaryotic and eukaryotic pathways, respectively. Structure and thermodynamics of stereoisomers of cis-, trans-2,3-biphenyl-dihydrodiols (I) and their dehydrogenation products (hydroxyketones, II), as well as final(More)
