Modular transcriptional repertoire and MicroRNA target analyses characterize genomic dysregulation in the thymus of Down syndrome infants

PMCID: 4884935
PMID: 26848775
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.7120

[…] Only the genes categorized as hubs, VIPs or high-hubs were considered in this analysis. MINT and IntAct databases were selected for data generation, which resulted in interactomes with 355 nodes and 1,305 edges for CT-DE; 168 nodes and 396 edges for DS-DE; 139 nodes and 313 edges for CT- […]


Large diurnal temperature range increases bird sensitivity to climate change

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4643245
PMID: 26563993
DOI: 10.1038/srep16600

[…] variables best explained mortality showed that the effects were most pronounced the day preceding the event (i.e. the survival or death of an individual), accounting for 77% and 15% of the weight for MinT and DTR respectively (). The time window over which MinT affected mortality was much shorter than DTR (8.9 < ΔAICc < 12.5, see methods for details on test). For MinT, (almost) 80% of the effect w […]


Amphibian Beta Diversity in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest: Contrasting the Roles of Historical Events and Contemporary Conditions at Different Spatial Scales

PLoS One
PMCID: 4190317
PMID: 25295514
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0109642

[…] to obtain the following climatic variables for each forest site: (1) annual mean temperature (ANNT); (2) maximum temperature of the warmest month (MAXT); (3) minimum temperature of the coldest month (MINT); (4) difference between MAXT and MINT (DIFT); (5) annual precipitation (PPT); (6) precipitation seasonality (coefficient of variation across months) (PPTS); (7) precipitation of wettest quarter […]


Non cytotoxic Thymus capitata extracts prevent Bovine herpesvirus 1 infection in cell cultures

PMCID: 4189610
PMID: 25260761
DOI: 10.1186/s12917-014-0231-6

[…] e) [].A large number of plant extracts from Lamiaceae were also examined for their potential antiviral activity against herpesvirus, such as: Melissa officinalis (lemon balm), Mentha piperita (pepper-mint), Prunella vulgaris (prunella), Rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary), Salvia officinalis (sage) and Thymus vulgaris (thyme) [–]. Besides, different thyme species have been screened for antibacterial […]


Cancer Association Study of Aminoacyl tRNA Synthetase Signaling Network in Glioblastoma

PLoS One
PMCID: 3432027
PMID: 22952576
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0040960

[…] genes that have been validated by manual curation, and causal relationship to cancer. Using 11 public database showing the curated interactions of human proteins (HPRD, BioGRID, KEGG, Reactome, BIND, MINT, IntAct, InnateDB, DIP, STRING, and PharmDB), we further selected 528 protein-protein interactors with 23 ARS/AIMPs. Among those genes, we selected 124 DTGs that consistently up- or down-regulate […]
