BACKGROUND The accurate normalization of differentially expressed genes in lung cancer is essential for the identification of novel therapeutic targets and biomarkers by real time RT-PCR and microarrays. Although classical "housekeeping" genes, such as GAPDH, HPRT1, and beta-actin have been widely used in the past, their accuracy as reference genes for lung(More)
BACKGROUND Different superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticles have been tested for their potential use in cancer treatment, as they enter into cells with high effectiveness, do not induce cytotoxicity, and are retained for relatively long periods of time inside the cells. We have analyzed the interaction, internalization and biocompatibility of(More)
BACKGROUND Collagen Triple Helix Repeat Containing-1 (CTHRC1) and Nuclear factor (erythroid-derived 2)-like 3 (NFE2L3) may be useful biomarker candidates for the diagnosis of colorectal cancer (CRC) since they have shown an increase messenger RNA transcripts (mRNA) expression level in adenomas and colorectal tumours when compared to normal tissues.

Semantic Web and grid computing are critical factors in the next Web intelligence generation. A fundamental aspect inside this challenge is the provision of a wide disseminated platform of abstract resources that permit us to get the right information at the right time. Grid services could be understood as proper requesting resources (agents, databases,(More)
Fetuses develop antibodies when they are infected with porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2). At abortion or birth, both PCV2 and/or anti-PCV2 antibodies can then be detected. Finding anti-PCV2 antibodies in aborted fetuses or stillborn piglets is generally used as evidence of an intra-uterine PCV2 infection. However, a recent analysis of fetuses sent in for(More)
Porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus (PRRSV) is the causative agent of one of the most devastating and economically significant viral disease of pigs worldwide. The vaccines currently available on the market elicit only limited protection. Recombinant vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) replicon particles (VRP) have been used successfully to(More)
For the first time, the qualitative and quantitative characterization of phenolic compounds of lower molecular weight fraction (LMF) were evaluated in commercial Cabernet Sauvignon (CS) and Tannat (T) wines varieties produced in Cafayate, Argentine. The antimicrobial activity against Pediococcus pentosaceus 12p, spoilage wine bacteria as well as the " in(More)
