Genetic contributions to circadian activity rhythm and sleep pattern phenotypes in pedigrees segregating for severe bipolar disorder
Abnormalities in sleep and circadian rhythms are central features of bipolar disorder (BP), often persisting between episodes. We report here, to our knowledge, the first systematic analysis of circadian rhythm activity ...
Variabilidad interanual y estacional de la atmósfera libre sobre Costa Rica durante eventos de El Niño
Con base en una técnica de composición de anomalías de los campos meteorológicos considerados, se diagnosticaron las principales alteraciones climáticas de la atmósfera libre sobre Costa Rica durante los eventos de El Niño, ...
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 ...
Hallazgos fenotípicos por imágenes con Tomografía Dental Volumétrica (TDV) en amelogénesis imperfecta
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 ...
Phylogenetic reassessment of Specklinia and its allied genera in the pleurothallidinae (Orchidaceae)
The phylogenetic relationships within Specklinia (Pleurothallidinae; Orchidaceae) and related genera are re-evaluated using Bayesian analyses of nrITS and chloroplast matK sequence data of a wide sampling of species. ...
Menopause, A Universal Female Experience: Lessons from Mexico and Central America
(Current Women’s Health Reviews 4(1), 3-8, 2008)
In Mexico and Central America, women typically experience menopause up to 10 years earlier than their U.S. counterparts. This may be due in part to numerous pregnancies, long periods of lactation, poor nutrition, extreme ...
Tropical Intraseasonal Modes of the Atmosphere
(Reviews In Advance. vol 39: 5.1–5.27, 2014-08-06)
Tropical intraseasonal variability (TISV) of the atmosphere describes the coherent variability in basic state variables, including pressure, wind, temperature, and humidity, as well as in the physical phenomena associated ...
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 ...
Genetic structure of personality factors and bipolar disorder in families segregating bipolar disorder
(Journal of Affective Disorders xxx (2011) xxx–xxx, 2011)
Bipolar disorder (BPD) has been associated with variations in personality dimensions, but the nature of this relationship has been unclear. Inthis study, theheritabilities of BPDandtheBig Five personality factors and the ...
