Article

Olive oil is a key component of the highly cardiovascular protective Mediterranean diet. (-)-Oleocanthal (OLC) is one of the most interesting phenolics present in virgin olive oil, and is formed from secoiridoid ligustroside during the processing of olives to yield the oil. Anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties were identified shortly after...

Purines are ubiquitous structures in cell biology involved in a multitude of cellular processes, because of which substituted purines and analogs are considered excellent scaffolds in drug design. In this study, we explored the key structural features of a purine-based proapoptotic hit, 8-tert-butyl-9-phenyl-6-benzyloxy-9H-purine (1), by setting up...

Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is a complex disease arising from mutations in the ATM gene (Ataxia-Telangiectasia Mutated), which plays crucial roles in repairing double-strand DNA breaks (DSBs). Heterogeneous immunodeficiency, extreme radiosensitivity, frequent appearance of tumors and neurological degeneration are hallmarks of the disease, which car...
Article

Ataxia-telangiectasia is a multisystemic disease with severe neurological affectation, immunodeficiency and telangiectasia. The disorder is caused by alterations in the ATM gene, whose size and complexity make molecular diagnosis difficult. We designed a target-enrichment next-generation sequencing strategy to characterize 28 patients from several...
Article
Targeted lentiviral vectors may contribute to circumvent genotoxicity associated to uncontrolled transcription of therapeutic genes. Some vectors replacing strong viral sequences for gene promoters such as β-globin, CD4, CD19 or Igκ were able to drive tissue-specific expression of the transgene. Gene therapy, however, faces even greater hurdles whe...
Article
A 18-member library of 6,8,9-poly-substituted purines was prepared from pyrimidines, primary alcohols and N,N-dimethylamides under basic conditions via a novel one-pot synthetic pathways controlled by amide sizes and the novel analogues were tested against two leukemia cell lines: Jurkat (acute T cell leukemia) and K562 (chronic erythroleukemia) ce...
Article
The Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) is an X-linked recessive disorder characterized by thrombocytopenia, eczema and various degrees of immune deficiency caused by mutations in the WAS gene, which encodes the WASP protein, the expression of which is restricted to haematopoietic cells. Mild allelic variants are associated with X-linked thrombocytopeni...
Conference Paper
The X-linked hyper IgM syndrome (HIGM1) is a primary immunodeficiency arising from mutations in the CD40LG gene encoding the type II glycoprotein CD154. This molecule is transiently expressed on CD4+ cells upon antigen recognition by the TCR/CD3 complex. CD154 plays a critical role in the class switch recombination of immunoglobulins, a process tha...
Article
Full-text available
The application of new protocols for gene therapy against monogenic diseases requires the development of safer therapeutic vectors, particularly in the case of diseases in which expression of the mutated gene is subject to fine regulation, as it is with CD40L (CD154). CD40L, the gene mutated in the X-linked hyper-immunoglobulin M syndrome (HIGM1),...
