Antibiotic-resistant infectious bacteria currently imply a high risk and therefore constitute a strong challenge when treating patients in hospital settings. Characterization of these species and of particular strains is a priority for the establishment of diagnostic tests and preventive procedures. The relevance of Acinetobacter baumannii as a problematic(More)
The genomic era is imparting a new impulse to the study of the role of genetic variation in susceptibility to disease. The most common type of genetic variation between individuals is single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP). The association of SNPs with susceptibility to disease is the current focus of intense research. Recently, the study of SNPs that alter(More)
Motif C, present in all polymerases, has been proposed to be part of the catalytic and metal binding site of the enzyme, suggesting that polymerases have a common origin. Previously, we have shown that the metal ion manganese induces alterations in nucleotide substrate specificity in some polymerases. However, it is not known if the active site responsible(More)
Understanding the transcriptional regulation mechanisms in response to environmental challenges is of fundamental importance in biology. Transcription factors associated to response elements and the chromatin structure had proven to play important roles in gene expression regulation. We have analyzed promoter regions of dipteran genes induced in response to(More)
The innate immune response of Anopheles gambiae involves the transcriptional upregulation of effector genes. Therefore, the cis-regulatory sequences and their cognate binding factors play essential roles in the mosquito's immune response. However, the genetic control of the mosquito's innate immune response is not yet fully understood. To gain further(More)
