New molecular variants of hypothalamus-pituitary-gonad axis genes and their association with early puberty phenotype in Bos taurus indicus (Nellore)
(Livestock Science, 2008-04-01) [Artigo]
Endocrine system plays a major role in the control of reproductive functions which are regulated by the hypothalamus-pituitary-gonad axis and its interactions. FSH and LH receptor genes are expressed at the gonads and GnRH ...
Quasispecies of hepatitis C virus genotype 1 and treatment outcome with Peginterferon and Ribavirin
(Infection, Genetics and Evolution, 2009-07-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
The majority of patients with chronic hepatitis C fail to respond to antiviral therapy. The genetic basis of this resistance is unknown. The quasispecies nature of HCV may have an important implication concerning viral ...
RNA interference inhibits yellow fever virus replication in vitro and in vivo
(Virus Genes, 2009-04-01) [Artigo]
RNA interference (RNAi) is a process that is induced by double stranded RNA and involves the degradation of specific sequences of mRNA in the cytoplasm of the eukaryotic cells. It has been used as an antiviral tool against ...
The prevalence of human papillomavirus in the oropharynx in healthy individuals in a Brazilian population
(Journal of Medical Virology, 2006-05-01) [Artigo]
Oncogenic human papillomavirus (HPV), a causative agent of uterine cervical cancer, has also been detected in head and neck squamous cell cancers, especially in squamous cell carcinomas of the tonsils. However, the true ...
Pre-treatment genetic variability of NS5A region on patients infected with HCV genotype 1
(Hepatology, 2008-10-01) [Resumo]
Saint Louis encephalitis virus, Brazil
(Emerging Infectious Diseases, 2007-01-01) [Carta]
Routine libraries for pattern recognition in quasispecies.
(Genetics and molecular research : GMR, 2008-12-01) [Artigo]
The results obtained through biological research usually need to be analyzed using computational tools, since manual analysis becomes unfeasible due to the complexity and size of these results. For instance, the study of ...
Simultaneous infection by DENY 3 and SLEV in Brazil
(Journal of Clinical Virology, 2007-09-01) [Artigo]
A transcript finishing initiative for closing gaps in the human transcriptome
(Genome Research, 2004-07-01) [Artigo]
We report the results of a transcript finishing initiative, undertaken for the purpose of identifying and characterizing novel human transcripts, in which RT-PCR was used to bridge gaps between paired EST Clusters, mapped ...
Spatial expression of two anti-inflammatory mediators, annexin 1 and galectin-1, in nasal polyposis
(Clinical and Experimental Allergy, 2006-10-01) [Artigo]
Background There is renewed interest in the role played by specific counter-regulatory mechanisms to control the inflammatory host response, poorly investigated in human pathology. Here, we monitored the expression of two ...
