Changes in oceanographic fronts affect the gene flow among marine crab populations
Changes in oceanographic fronts affect the gene flow among marine crab populations
In the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, the intensity and location of the oceanographic fronts that limit the gene connectivity among populations of marine crabs vary over time. These dynamic changes, described in an article published in the journal Scientific Reports , alter the gene structure of the populations of marine crabs of commercial and gastronomic interest.

Centenarians' offspring share their unique footprint
Centenarians’ offspring share their unique footprint
A genetic analysis of centenarians- descendants reveals a specific genetic footprint that may explain why they are less frail than descendants of non-centenarians of the same age. This is the main conclusion of a study led by the University of Valencia (UV), the CIBER for Fragility and Healthy Aging (CIBERFES), and the Health Research Institute (INCLIVA) that has been published in The Journals of Gerontology .

A polyphenol-rich diet prevents inflammation in older people
A polyphenol-rich diet prevents inflammation in older people
Polyphenols in the foods that we eat can prevent inflammation in older people, since they alter the intestinal microbiota and induce the production of the indole 3-propionic acid (IPA), a metabolite derived from the degradation of tryptophan due to intestinal bacteria. This is stated in a study published in the journal Molecular Nutrition and Food Research , carried out by the Research Group on Biomarkers and Nutritional & Food Metabolomics of the Faculty of Pharmacy and Food Sciences of the University of Barcelona and the CIBER on Fragility and Healthy Ageing ( CIBERFES ).

What oxytocin can tell us about the evolution of human prosociality
What oxytocin can tell us about the evolution of human prosociality
Modern humans are characterized by their prosociality, a broad term that encompasses intraspecies empathy, social tolerance, cooperation and altruism. These facets of social cognition have been associated with variations in the oxytocin and vasotocin genes (OT and VT) and their receptors (OTR and VTR).

Researchers identify neuronal mechanisms that control food cravings during pregnancy
Researchers identify neuronal mechanisms that control food cravings during pregnancy
Many people have felt the sudden and uncontrollable urge to eat a certain food. These urges —known as cravings— are very common, mostly during pregnancy. At this stage, the mother's body undergoes a series of physiological and behavioural changes to create a favourable environment for the embryo's development.

Decisive role of PDK1 enzyme in acute myeloid leukaemia
Decisive role of PDK1 enzyme in acute myeloid leukaemia
Acute myeloid leukaemia (AML) remains harder to treat therapeutically due to the high existing genetic heterogeneity not only between patients but also between the population of subclones of cancer cells within the same person. Despite the knowledge advances, understanding the metabolic characteristics of altered cells in this pathology is one of the scientific challenges for designing more efficient therapies.

Building new sea turtle populations in a biodiversity crisis
Building new sea turtle populations in a biodiversity crisis
Biodiversity loss has accelerated over the last decade, driven by the impact of global warming, alteration of habitats and the dispersal of invasive exotic species due to human action. The reintroduction of captive-bred animals is one of the potential solutions to cope with this problem.
