The goal of the current study is to analyse the gene expression profile of the ovine skeletal muscle as well as to characterize the genetic variation of transcripts expressed in such tissue. This aim has been achieved by sequencing the longissimus dorsi transcriptomes of 50 sheep distributed in five pools representing the Canaria de Pelo, Roja Mallorquina, Gallega, Xisqueta and Ripollesa Spanish autochthonous breeds.

We present an experimental method, based on the use of dynamic split-lens configurations, useful for the trapping and spatial control of microparticles through the photophoretic force. In particular, the concept of Split- lens configurations is exploited to experimentally create customized and reconfigurable three-dimensional light structures, in which carbon coated glass microspheres, with sizes in a range of 63—75 pm, can be captured.

13 p, 1.8 MB Two fluid model in low energy excited states within spin-ice systems / López Bara, Fernando Ignacio (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.Departament de Física) ; López Aguilar, Fernando (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Física)
Excitations in magnetic structures of the so-called spin-ice materials generate two diferent peaks in the specifc heat and anomalies in entropy in the temperature interval between 0 and 1K. These points are due to the existence of two low-energy excited global states which seem to transit from a bosonic condensate towards a magnetic neutral plasma in a narrow temperature interval between 0.

After a strong demographic decline before World War II, wild boar populations are expanding and the species is now the second-most abundant ungulate in Europe. This increase raises concerns due to wild boar impact on crops and natural ecosystems and as potential vector of diseases. [...]

Here we used a systems biology approach and artifcial intelligence to identify a neuroprotective agent for the treatment of peripheral nerve root avulsion. Based on accumulated knowledge of the neurodegenerative and neuroprotective processes that occur in motoneurons after root avulsion, we built up protein networks and converted them into mathematical models.

14 p, 7.0 MB Structural insights into positive and negative allosteric regulation of a G protein-coupled receptor through protein-lipid interactions. / Bruzzese, Agustín (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona.

Lipids are becoming known as essential allosteric modulators of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCRs). However, how they exert their efects on GPCR conformation at the atomic level is still unclear. In light of recent experimental data, we have performed several long-timescale molecular dynamics (MD) simulations, totalling 24 μs, to rigorously map allosteric modulation and conformational changes in the β2 adrenergic receptor (β2AR) that occur as a result of interactions with three diferent phospholipids.
