A cDNA that encodes a kappa opioid receptor like from zebrafish (ZFOR3) has been cloned and characterized. The encoded protein is 377 residues long and presents 70% identity with the mammalian kappa receptors, although less homology is found in the amino- and carboxyl-terminus as well as in the extracellular loops. In situ hybridization studies have(More)
Cloning and molecular characterization of an homologous gene to proenkephalin in a teleost, the zebrafish Danio rerio is presented in this paper. The new zebrafish proenkephalin (zfPENK) encodes a 249 amino acid polypeptide that displays an identity of 40% to mammalian PENKs and which contains the consensus sequences for four Met-enkephalins, one(More)
Paget disease of bone (PDB) is a focal bone disorder affecting the skeleton segmentally. The main alteration resides in osteoclasts that increase in size, number and activity. Many osteoclasts have cytoplasmic inclusions that have been associated with protein aggregates, increasing the evidences of a possible deregulation of autophagy in the development of(More)
Conradi-Hünermann-Happle syndrome (CDPX2, OMIM 302960) is an inherited X-linked dominant variant of chondrodysplasia punctata which primarily affects the skin, bones, and eyes. CDPX2 patients display skin defects, including ichthyotic lesions, follicular atrophoderma, cicatricial alopecia, and less frequently ichthyosiform erythroderma, cataracts, and(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The objective was to study the clinicopathologic characteristics of patients diagnosed of colorectal cancer (CRC) with clinical criteria for Lynch syndrome, in our region, in order to assess and improve the care of them and their families in the Genetic Counseling Unit of our hospital. PATIENTS AND METHODS This was an(More)
In some cases of lamellar ichthyosis, mutations in the epidermal transglutaminase gene and a reduction in the thickness of the cornified envelope have been documented. Involucrin is a major component of the cornified envelope and a substrate for epidermal transglutaminase. The aim of the present work was to analyse the expression of involucrin in lamellar(More)
