Use of Dental Volumetric Tomography for Dental Phenotyping In Amelogenesis Imperfecta
Amelogénesis imperfecta (AI) se describe como un conjunto de defectos mendelianos en la biomineralización del esmalte dental, los cuales son severos en la mayoría de los casos al presentar anormalidades tales como un grosor ...
Characterization of Expression Quantitative Trait Loci in Pedigrees from Colombia and Costa Rica Ascertained for Bipolar Disorder
The observation that variants regulating gene expression (expression quantitative trait loci, eQTL) are at a high frequency among SNPs associated with complex traits has made the genome-wide characterization of gene ...
Integration and Fixation Preferences of Human and Mouse Endogenous Retroviruses Uncovered with Functional Data Analysis
Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs), the remnants of retroviral infections in the germ line, occupy ~8% and ~10% of the human and mouse genomes, respectively, and affect their structure, evolution, and function. Yet we still ...
Reproductive biology and behavior of Doru taeniatum (Forficulidae)
(Revista de BioIogía Tropical 36(2B): 437-440, 1988., 1988)
This study deals with the biology of Doru taeniatum, (Forficuüdae), particulary the habitat, feeding, reproduction, maternal care, and nymphal stages. The density of adults is higher in the older corn plants. The earwings ...
Genetic diversity in Oryza glumaepatula wild rice populations in Costa Rica and possible gene flow from O. sativa
Wild crop relatives are an important source of genetic diversity for crop improvement. Diversity estimates are generally lacking for many wild crop relatives. The objective of the present study was to analyze how genetic ...
Salivary gland morphology, tissue tropism and the progression of tospovirus infection in Frankliniella occidentalis
Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) is transmitted by thrips in a propagative manner; however, progression of virus infection in the insect is not fully understood. The goal of this work was to study the morphology and infection ...
Reverse Transcription Errors and RNA-DNA Differences at Short Tandem Repeats
Transcript variation has important implications for organismal function in health and disease. Most transcriptome studies focus on assessing variation in gene expression levels and isoform representation. Variation at the ...
Neuropsychological Test Performance in Cognitively Normal Spanish-speaking Nonagenarians with Little Education
To find associations of age, sex, and education with neuropsychological test performance in cognitively normal Spanish-speaking Costa Rican nonagenarians with little education; to provide norms; and to compare their ...
In favor of establishment: chromatid cohesion in plants
In eukaryotic organisms, the correct regulation of sister chromatid cohesion, whereby sister chromatids are paired and held together, is essential for accurate segregation of the sister chromatids and homologous chromosomes ...
