BACKGROUND Tight junctions play a critical role in tubular function. In mammalian kidney, the transepithelial electrical resistance and the complexity of the tight junction increase from the proximal to the collecting tubule. The differential expression of three tight junction proteins, ZO-1, ZO-2, and occludin, along isolated rabbit renal tubules is(More)
Infant acute lymphoblastic leukemia harboring the fusion mixed-lineage leukemia (MLL)-AF4 is associated with a dismal prognosis and very brief latency. Our limited understanding of transformation by MLL-AF4 is reflected in murine models, which do not accurately recapitulate the human disease. Human models for MLL-AF4 disease do not exist. Hematopoietic stem(More)
Estradiol rapidly activates a microcircuit in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus (ARH) that is needed for maximal female sexual receptivity. Membrane estrogen receptor-α complexes with and signals through the metabotropic glutamate receptor-1a stimulating NPY release within the ARH activating proopiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons. These POMC neurons(More)
The aim of this research is to contribute to the general system education providing new insights and resources. This study performs a quasi-experimental study at University of Salamanca with 30 students to compare results between using an anatomic app for learning and the formal traditional method conducted by a teacher. The findings of the investigation(More)
<b>Background</b>. The evolution and the growth of mobile application in our society is a reality. This evolution has been spread in the Medical Schools as well, being part of the self-learning of the students and a tool for medical teachers. However, there is a lot of unawareness of the use of mobile applications, as the medical professionals do not know(More)
The evolution and the growth of mobile applications (“apps”) in our society is a reality. This general trend is still upward and the app use has also penetrated the medical education community. However, there is a lot of unawareness of the students’ and professionals’ point of view about introducing “apps” within Medical School curriculum. The aim of this(More)
The objective of this paper is to discuss about the factors and drivers needed to define a new quality protocol applied for apps. In fact, it is mainly focused on medical apps that are used for learning. This paper also explains the process and the methodology adopted in order to come out with those factors. The methodology used to reach these factors is a(More)
