Faculty of Spatial Sciences)
The recent decrease of the male-female mortality gap in Western Europe has been accompanied by changes in the life style, educational level, family roles and employment of women. In this paper we try to find out whether a relationship indeed exists between the increase in gender equality and the decrease in the male/female mortality difference. [...]

As the baby boom cohort approaches retirement, there has been considerable uncertainty about the economic sustainability of the social security systems in most of the developed world. In recent decades, Spain has had both one of the oldest populations and the lowest levels of employment among the population aged 50 and over in Europe. [...]

6 p, 123.3 KB Operational models of allosteric modulation : caution is needed / Giraldo, Jesús (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de Neurociències)
The operational model of allosteric modulation and allosteric agonism [1–5] is being used routinely to assess the functional effects of allosteric modulators. Because the meaning of parameters and concepts often loses precision after extensive use, it may be timely to revise some particularities of the model to preclude possible misinterpretations. [...]

Departament de Sanitat i d'Anatomia Animals) ; Castellà Gómez, Gemma (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Sanitat i d'Anatomia Animals)
Ochratoxin A (OTA) producing fungi are members of the genera Aspergillus and Penicillium. Nowadays, there are about 20 species accepted as OTA producers, which are distributed in three phylogenetically related but distinct groups of aspergilli of the subgenus Circumdati and only in two species of the subgenus Penicillium.

Ochratoxin A (OTA) has been shown to be a potent nephrotoxic, hepatotoxic, and teratogenic compound. In farm animals, the intake of feed contaminated with OTA affects animal health and productivity, and may result in the presence of OTA in the animal products. [...]

The condensation (polymerization by water elimination) of molecular Building blocks to yield the first active biopolymers (e. g. of amino acids to form peptides) during primitive Earth is an intriguing question that nowadays still remains open since these processes are thermodynamically disfavoured in highly dilute water solutions.
