Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer mortality in females worldwide. Studies based on gene expression profiles have identified different breast cancer molecular subtypes, such as luminal A and B cells, cancer cells that are estrogen receptor (ER) and/or progesterone receptor (PR) positive, human epidermal growth factor 2 (HER2)-enriched cells,(More)
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been associated with oxidative stress and various cardiovascular consequences, such as increased cardiovascular disease risk. Quantitative real-time PCR is frequently employed to assess changes in gene expression in experimental models. In this study, we analyzed the effects of chronic intermittent hypoxia (an experimental(More)
High spatial variability in polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), organochlorine pesticides, such as DDTs, and polybrominated diphenylethers was observed in plastic pellets collected randomly from 41 beaches (15 cities) in 2010 from the coast of state of São Paulo, southeastern Brazil. The highest concentrations ranged,(More)
