How can you mend a broken heart?

Auditorio "Dr. Francisco Bolivar" del IBt Instituto de Biotecnología UNAM Morelos, Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico

Resumen de la charla: Chagas disease, a neglected disease caused by the protozoan Trypanosoma cruzi, is endemic in 21 Latin American countries, affecting 6–8 million people. Increasing numbers of Chagas disease cases have also been reported in non-endemic countries due to migration, contamination via blood transfusions or organ transplantation, characterizing Chagas as an emerging disease […]

Context matters: agathokakological roles for redox-active “antibiotics”

Auditorio "Dr. Guillermo Soberón" del CCG Centro de Ciencias Genómicas UNAM Morelos, Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico

Abstract My laboratory has long been fascinated by phenazines, a class of secreted redox-active metabolites produced by diverse soil bacteria, including the opportunistic human pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Though phenazines were once thought to function primarily as antibiotics to kill competitors, we have found additional physiological functions for phenazines under anoxic conditions, including roles in signaling, […]

Evolution of plant – microbe interactions

Transmisión en vivo

Abstract Plants interact with a huge diversity of microorganisms in associations ranging from parasitic to mutualistic, with either bacteria or filamentous fungi or oomycetes. Since plants colonized lands 450 million years ago, these associations have evolved in opposite directions. Mutualism has been maintained for hundreds of million years whereas the interactions with parasites are fast […]

Embryonic Stem Cells Rely on Sustained DNA Methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1) Activity for Epigenetic Stability and Functional Integrity

Transmisión en vivo

Abstract: DNA methyltransferase 1 (DNMT1) is critical during early development. Absence of DNMT1 is embryonic lethal and insufficient DNMT1 activity can lead to disorganized cell differentiation, increased cell death of specialized cells and implantation failure. DNMT1 is known for catalyzing DNA methylation maintenance, notably at imprinting control regions (ICR). However, evidence supports DNMT1 functionality beyond […]
