Serological and Genetic Evidence for Altered Complement System Functionality in Systemic Lupus Erythematosus: Findings of the GAPAID Consortium
(Public Library Science, 2016-03-07)
Systemic lupus erythematosus is a chronic autoimmune disease with multifactorial ethiopathogenesis. The complement system is involved in both the early and late stages of disease development and organ damage. To better ...
LDLR and PCSK9 Are Associated with the Presence of Antiphospholipid Antibodies and the Development of Thrombosis in aPLA Carriers
(Public Library Science, 2016-01-28)
Introduction The identification of the genetic risk factors that could discriminate non-thrombotic from thrombotic antiphospholipid antibodies (aPLA) carriers will improve prognosis of these patients. Several human ...
18S rRNA V9 metabarcoding for diet characterization: a critical evaluation with two sympatric zooplanktivorous fish species
(Wiley Blackwell, 2016-03)
The potential of the 18S rRNA V9 metabarcoding approach for diet assessment was explored using MiSeq paired-end (PE; 2 9 150 bp) technology. To critically evaluate the method's performance with degraded/digested DNA, the ...
Insights on the Origin of Invasive Copepods colonizing Basque Estuaries; a DNA Barcoding Approach
(Biomed Central, 2016-07-13)
Background: The introduction of NIS to estuaries and coastal embayment is of great concern. Commercial ships’ ballast water discharge and the northwards progression of species due to the ongoing climate change arise as ...
