Distinct Correlations Between Lipogenic Gene Expression and Fatty Acid Composition of Subcutaneous Fat Among Cattle Breeds
(Biomed Central, 2018-05-23)
Background: The fatty acid (FA) composition of adipose tissue influences the nutritional quality of meat products. The unsaturation level of FAs is determined by fatty acid desaturases such as stearoyl- CoA desaturases ...
Extracellular matrix protein microarray-based biosensor with single cell resolution: Integrin profiling and characterization of cell-biomaterial interactions
In the search of biomaterials that promote cell adhesion, it is crucial to explore the integrin-substrate dynamic interactions given in a certain cell type to design successful biofunctionalization strategies. Here, we use ...
Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus reversal via implantation of magnetically purified microencapsulated pseudoislets
Microencapsulation of pancreatic islets for the treatment of Type I Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) generates a high quantity of empty microcapsules, resulting in high therapeutic graft volumes that can enhance the host’s immune ...
Genetic Characterization of the Local Pirenaica Cattle for Parentage and Traceability Purposes
Pirenaica is the most important autochthonous cattle breed within the Protected Geographic Indication (PGI) beef quality label in the Basque region, in northern Spain. The short tandem repeats (STRs) are powerful markers ...
Predicting Dimensions in Microfluidic Paper Based Analytical Devices
The main problem for the expansion of the use of microfluidic paper-based analytical devices and, thus, their mass production is their inherent lack of fluid flow control due to its uncontrolled fabrication protocols. To ...
