Food adulteration, mislabeling and fraud, either unintentional or deliberate, is a worldwide and growing concern. Current challenges associated with food authentication comprise many topics: geographic origin, breed/variety identification, production method, feeding regime, technological processing, undeclared components, detection of genetically m...
Article
Galiellalactone (GL) is a fungal metabolite that presents antitumor and antiinflammatory activities in vitro and in vivo. Previous studies have shown that GL targets NF-κB and STAT3 pathways and induces G2/M cell cycle arrest in androgen-insensitive prostate cancer cells. In this study, we show that GL-induced cell cycle arrest is independent of th...

Aberrant DNA hypermethylation is a hallmark of cancer although the underlying molecular mechanisms are still poorly understood. To study the possible role of 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) in this process we analyzed the global and locus-specific genome-wide levels of 5hmC and 5mC in human primary samples from 12 non-tumoral brains and 53 gliomas....
Article
Two PUFAs, DHA and ARA, as well as derivatives such as eicosanoids, regulate different activities, affecting transcription factors and therefore DNA transcription, being a critical step for the functioning of FA-derived signalling. This work has attempted to determine the in vitro anticancer activities of these molecules linked to the gene transcri...
Article
Significance: Currently there is no single biochemical parameter available for the accurate diagnosis of growth hormone (GH) deficiency (GHD) in children. Simple GH measurements are not an option: because GH is released in a pulsatile action, its blood levels fluctuate throughout the day and remain nearly undetectable for most of that time. This m...
Chapter
Food components are regularly adulterated, either deliberately or unintentionally, and this may lead to substitutions of a species by a similar but lower-quality counterpart, mislabeling of products, and therefore to commercial fraud. The authentication of food products is a request from consumers and industry, and accordingly global food regulatio...

DNA methylation is an epigenetic mechanism regulating gene expression that has been insufficiently studied in the blood of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients, as only T cells and total peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from patients with established RA have been studied and with conflicting results. Five major blood cell subpopulations: T,...
Chapter
Authentication of food products has demanded great attention by consumers and the food industry in recent years. Food components may be adulterated, leading to mislabeling and commercial fraud, especially in fish and shellfish products, where the substitution of high quality species by lower quality ones is frequent. Many regulations have appeared...
Article
Three factors defining the traceability of a food product are production method (wild or farmed), geographical origin and biological species, which have to be checked and guaranteed, not only in order to avoid mislabelling and commercial fraud, but also to address food safety issues and to comply with legal regulations. The aim of this study was to...
Article
Background Biological therapies have been a great advance in Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) treatment. However, up to a third of the RA patients do not respond to a given biologic and a method to predict response is not yet available. Therefore, the only approach to select effective biological drugs is by trial and error. In addition, assessment of resp...
Article
Full-text available
This review is a critical overview of advances in proteomics applied in food technology, which may be classified into two main topics: (i) authentication of food components as a tool to comply with foodlabeling regulations and policies; and, (ii) food-technology research, mainly for the development of fast, reliable methods to detect and to identif...
Article
Background Epigenetic regulation influences gene expression and can affect disease course and treatment response. Global DNA methylation of T cells from patients with RA is decreased1. This hypomethylation could favour inflammation and tissue destruction through aberrant gene expression. However, little is known about this process and whether other...

Full-text available
The close relationship between nutrition and health has led to changes in the habits of consumers, who are demanding products that meet their dietary and nutritional preferences. In light of this demand, both academia and food industries face a new challenge: the need for developing strategies and products that are not only safe, but also contribut...
Article
Biologics such as TNF antagonists are a new class of drugs that have greatly improved Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) treatment.However, for unknown reasons, individual patientswith RA respond to one of these drugs but not to others even those targeting the same molecule. Methods to predict response are sorely needed because these drugs are currently sel...
Article
Although seafood species identification has traditionally relied on morphological analysis, sometimes this is difficult to apply for the differentiation among penaeid shrimps owing to their phenotypic similarities and to the frequent removal of external carapace during processing. The objective of this review is to provide an updated and extensive...
Article
Genomic and proteomic techniques for species identification of meat and seafood products are being widely used. In this study, a genomic approach was used to differentiate Pandalus borealis (the Northern shrimp), which belongs to the superfamily Pandaloidea, from 30 crustaceans consisting of 19 commercially relevant prawns/shrimps species that belo...

Precision medicine consists on delivering the right treatment at the right time, to the right person, in order to treat complex diseases more effectively. It implies the ability to classify individuals into subpopulations that differ in their susceptibility to a particular disease, in the biology and/or prognosis of those diseases, or in their response to a specific treatment, according to differences in genes, environment or lifestyle. Therefore, there is a need to identify biomarkers that are able to stratify patients and that could be measured within clinical assays, contributing to a more efficient use of the healthcare system. Next-generation proteomics, through a combination of developments in instrumentation, sample preparation and computational analysis, is able to in-depth characterize almost complete proteomes. We are using state of the art "omics" technologies for the chemical analysis of proteins , and "big data" analysis comprising new statistics and bioinformatics techniques for the analysis of the huge amount of data that is going to be generated.
