Melanocytes in the testes of Eupemphix nattereri (Anura, Leiuperidae): Histological, stereological, and ultrastructural aspects
(Anatomical Record-advances In Integrative Anatomy and Evolutionary Biology, 2007-07-01) [Artigo]
Ectothermic vertebrates have a well-developed system of melanin-containing cells, which localize in several organs and tissues and compose an extracutaneous pigmentary system. This research aimed at characterizing histological ...

This paper, based on Jacques Derrida’s thoughts in Des Tours of Babel, addresses the issue regarding the (in)visible in translation, by arguing that the latter, beyond the traditional conception of communication, produces ...
On Hepatitis C Virus Evolution: The Interaction between Virus and Host towards Treatment Outcome
(PLOS ONE, 2013-04-25) [Artigo]
Background:Hepatitis C is a disease spread throughout the world. Hepatitis C virus (HCV), the etiological agent of this disease, is a single-stranded positive RNA virus. Its genome encodes a single precursor protein that ...
Genetic diversity of NS5A protein from hepatitis C virus genotype 3a and its relationship to therapy response
(BMC Infectious Diseases, 2010-02-23) [Artigo]
Background: The quasispecies nature of HCV may have important implications for viral persistence, pathogenicity and resistance to antiviral agents. The variability of one of the viral proteins, NS5A, is believed to be ...
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 ...

Nucleotide and phylogenetic analysis of human papillomavirus types 6 and 11 isolated from recurrent respiratory papillomatosis in Brazil
(Infection, Genetics and Evolution, 2013-06-01) [Artigo]
There are few studies about the distribution of natural molecular variants of low-risk HPVs. Our aim was to evaluate the E6 early gene variability among HPV-6 and HPV-11 isolates detected in recurrent respiratory papillomatosis ...
Four types of evidentiality in the native languages of Brazil

In this paper we argue that the notions generally grouped together under the heading of evidentiality actually belong to four different evidential subcategories, which are different from one another in terms of their ...
Proinflammatory Cytokines Correlate with Depression and Anxiety in Colorectal Cancer Patients
(Biomed Research International, 2014-01-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this study was to investigate whether serum cytokine levels correlate with depression and anxiety in colorectal cancer (CRC) patients. Twenty patients hospitalized for surgical resection of CRC were included ...
Fractalkine (C-X3-C motif chemokine ligand 1) as a potential biomarker for depression and anxiety in colorectal cancer patients
(Biomedical Reports, 2017-08-01) [Artigo]
Fractalkine, a unique chemokine of the CX3C subfamily, is involved in the pathogenesis of different types of cancer and also in non-immune mechanisms associated with psychiatric disorders. The aim of the present study was ...
