Historia de la genética latinoamericana en el siglo XX
(Sociedad Médica de Santiago, 1999)
A genome-wide association scan implicates DCHS2, RUNX2, GLI3, PAX1 and EDAR in human facial variation
(Nature Research, 2016)
We report a genome-wide association scan for facial features in approximately 6,000 Latin Americans. We evaluated 14 traits on an ordinal scale and found significant association (P values<5 x 10(-8)) at single-nucleotide ...
Population, Epidemiological, and Functional Genetics of Gastric Cancer Candidate Genes in Peruvians with Predominant Amerindian Ancestry
Background. Gastric adenocarcinoma is associated with chronic infection by Helicobacter pylori and with the host inflammatory response triggered by it, with substantial inter-person variation in the immune response profile ...
Early detection of gastric cancer using global, genome-wide and IRF4, ELMO1, CLIP4 and MSC DNA methylation in endoscopic biopsies
(Impact Journals, 2017)
Clinically useful molecular tools to triage gastric cancer patients are not currently available. We aimed to develop a molecular tool to predict gastric cancer risk in endoscopy-driven biopsies obtained from high-risk ...
Genetic population structure and evidence of genetic homogeneity in populations of the Argentinian silverside Odontesthes bonariensis (Teleostei: Atherinopsidae) inhabiting central and northwestern Argentina
(Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, 2017)
The study of species in their native geographic ranges is key to understanding how human activity has influenced spatial fragmentation or species homogenization. The Argentinian silverside Odontesthes bonariensis, of ...
Facial asymmetry and genetic ancestry in Latin American admixed populations
Fluctuating and directional asymmetry are aspects of morphological variation widely used to infer environmental and genetic factors affecting facial phenotypes. However, the genetic basis and environmental determinants of ...
Genetic variation at twentythree microsatellite loci in sixteen human populations
We have analysed genetic variation at 23 microsatellite loci in a global sample of 16 ethnically and geographically diverse human populations. On the basis of their ancestral heritage and geographic locations, the studied ...
Acrylamide: dermal exposure produces genetic damage in male mouse germ cells
Acrylamide Is used extensively in sewage and wastewater treatment plants, in the paper and pulp industry, in treatment of potable water, and in research laboratories for chromatography, eltetrophoresis. and electron ...
