An international team including GENYO centre researchers has described a molecular mechanism that defends human genome integrity against “bombarding” by mobile DNA sequences. Alterations in the mechanism could be responsible for symptoms causing this syndrome Their research—an important step forward in the field of genetics—is published this week in the prestigious Nature Structural and Molecular Biology journal This scientific advance could in the future help develop new therapies against the disease, caused by microdeletion of a small (...)
Spanish scientists are the first to reveal the previously unknown enigma of the effect melatonin has to counter obesity in the organism and why it has metabolic benefits in treating diabetes and hyperlipidemia Melatonin is a natural hormone segregated by the body and melatonin levels generally increase in the dark at night. It is also found in fruit and vegetables like mustard, Goji berries, almonds, sunflower seeds, cardamom, fennel, coriander and cherries. Spanish scientists have discovered that (...)
The University of Granada participates in a project that has also concluded cognitive performance is better in girls whose walk to school lasts more than 15 minutes than in those who live closer and have a shorter walk The authors of this study analysed a sample of 1700 boys and girls aged between 13 and 18 years (808 boys and 892 girls) in five Spanish cities (Granada, Madrid, Murcia, Santander and Zaragoza) Cognitive performance of adolescent girls (...)
Granada-based researchers patent a new biomaterial based on an activated carbon cloth support that acts as scaffolding for the construction of cells capable of bone regeneration Although their results were obtained ‘ex vivo’, in the future they could help manufacture medicines to treat neoplastic, traumatic or degenerative bone pathologies After obtaining artificial bone in the laboratory, the next step is to implant the biomaterial in animals to see if it can regenerate bone in them  Scientists in Granada, (...)
The British Journal of Sports Medicine recently published the conclusions of a study by researchers at the University of Granada, Polytechnic University of Madrid and European University of Madrid The researchers found that moderate-intensity exercise three times a week during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy halves the risk of having a newborn baby with macrosomia (weighing over 4 kilos)  Taking moderate-intensity exercise three times a week during the second and third trimester of pregnancy halves (...)
The benefits of this vitamin B source have been demonstrated in an experimental study in rats conducted by scientists at the University of Granada (Spain), Simón Bolívar University (Venezuela) and the University of York (UK). Choline is found in foodstuffs of animal origin, like eggs and chicken or beef liver, and in vegetable sources like soy and wheat germ. An experimental study in rats has shown that consuming choline, a vitamin B group nutrient found in foodstuffs (...)
Spanish and US scientists propose a new criterion to identify disease-transmission agents in an article published in the prestigious journal PNAS Their study could make an important contribution to predicting the species most likely to cause future pandemics Spanish and US scientists have successfully identified animal species that can transmit more diseases to humans by using mathematical tools similar to those applied to the study of social networks like Facebook or Twitter. Their research—recently published in the (...)
Scientists at the University of Granada have developed a new topical treatment formula that does not create bacteria resistance and has no secondary effects The principle ingredient in the new formula—patented through the Office for the Transfer of Research Results (Otri)—is a circular-structured, 70 amino acid protein known as AS-48 University of Granada scientists have patented a new treatment for acne that is based on completely natural substances and is much more effective than artificial formulas because (...)
To achieve athletic success, improve performance, for financial gain or "because other athletes also use them” are some of the reasons why athletes begin to use banned substances and methods A study published in the prestigious journal "Sports Medicine" by researchers at the University of Granada has revealed the widespread belief among athletes that the fignt against doping is "inefficient and biased”  Most elite athletes consider doping substances "are effective" in improving performance, while recognising that they (...)
The PISMA-ep study is directed by the University of Granada, in collaboration with the University Hospital, the Andalusian School of Public Health and the Andalusian Health Service Mental Health Program To date, PISMA-ep is the largest epidemiologic study of the principle genetic and environmental causes, and prevalence of mental disorders in Andalusia Being a woman, unemployed and living in a situation of social adversity are the three strongest trigger influences in subjects with a genetic predisposition to (...)
