Introduction
I'm doing my PhD at the Group of Biology of Reproduction (GBR; 1997), with the FPI 2020 fellowship. The purpose is to improve knowledge about the relevance of DNA methylation on several aspects of fish physiology, such as development and reproduction. Specifically, I'm working on reprogramming of inherited methylation marks during embryo development, validation of predictive biomarkers of sexual determination and identification of genetically independent markers of exposure to high temperatures.

Vitamin K (VK) is a fat-soluble vitamin that vertebrates have to acquire from the diet, since they are not able to de novo synthesize it. VK has been historically known to be required for the control of blood coagulation, and more recently, bone development and homeostasis. Our understanding of the VK metabolism and the VK-related molecular pathway...

Vitamin K (VK) is a key nutrient for several biological processes (e.g., blood clotting and bone metabolism). To fulfill VK nutritional requirements, VK action as an activator of pregnane X receptor (Pxr) signaling pathway, and as a co-factor of γ-glutamyl carboxylase enzyme, should be considered. In this regard, VK recycling through vitamin K epox...

Bisphenol A (BPA), a monomer used for polycarbonate manufacture, has been widely reported as an endocrine-disrupting chemical (EDC). Among other alterations, BPA induces reproductive dysfunctionalities. Changes in the endocannabinoid system (ECS) has been recently shown to be associated with reproductive disorders. ECS is a lipid-based signaling sy...
