Información sobre la creatina en el siglo XXI en España / Martínez-Martínez, Pedro Javier (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Institut de la Comunicació)
A pesar de la extensa literatura existente, cada día son más las aportaciones científicas que apoyan la eficacia de la suplementación con creatina. Desde una perspectiva clínica, se ha demostrado que es beneficiosa para un gran número de enfermedades, mientras que en el ámbito deportivo, ha sido reconocida como el suplemento nutricional más eficaz en la mejora de la tolerancia al ejercicio, el aumento de fuerza muscular y el desarrollo de masa magra corporal. [...]

The conversion of carbon dioxide (CO) into value-added chemicals and fuels, preferably using renewable energy and earth-abundant materials, is considered a key priority for future energy research. In this work, a bias-free reactor device for the solar-driven conversion of CO to synthesis gas (syngas) has been developed. [...]

Model intercomparison studies in the climate and Earth sciences communities have been crucial to building credibility and coherence for future projections. They have quantified variability among models, spurred model development, contrasted within-and among-model uncertainty, assessed model fits to historical data, and provided ensemble projections of future change under specified scenarios.

Profound metabolic and structural changes are required for fleshy green fruits to ripen and become colorful and tasty. In tomato (Solanum lycopersicum), fruit ripening involves the differentiation of chromoplasts, specialized plastids that accumulate carotenoid pigments such as β-carotene (pro-vitamin A) and lycopene.
