BioISI Research Seminar – Nuno Magessi, April 5th

2018-03-29T16:11:39+00:00 November 23rd, 2017|

 10h00, FCUL, room 2.4.16 In the most recent risk studies, one of the most pressing problems is the risk perception gap phenomenon. The gap is defined as the difference between individual risk perception and the existing reality. Studies argue that the phenomenon of the gap comes from the irrational fear of people when exposed [...]

Regulation of the mechanism of Type-II NADH: Quinone oxidoreductase from S. aureus

2018-03-29T07:46:34+00:00 November 23rd, 2017|

Type-II NADH:quinone oxidoreductases (NDH-2s) are membrane proteins involved in respiratory chains and the only enzymes with NADH:quinone oxidoreductase activity expressed in Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), one of the most common causes of clinical infections. NDH-2s are members of the two-Dinucleotide Binding Domains Flavoprotein (tDBDF) superfamily, having a flavin adenine dinucleotide, FAD, as prosthetic group and [...]

A Mathematical Model of the Phosphoinositide Pathway.

2018-03-29T07:47:22+00:00 July 31st, 2012|

Phosphoinositides are signalling lipids that constitute a complex network regulating many cellular processes. We propose a computational model that accounts for all species of phosphoinositides in the plasma membrane of mammalian cells. The model replicates the steady-state of the pathway and most known dynamic phenomena. Sensitivity analysis demonstrates model robustness to alterations in the parameters. [...]

Magnetic properties and core electron binding energies of liquid water.

2018-03-29T10:19:13+00:00 July 31st, 2012|

The magnetic properties and the core and inner valence electron binding energies of liquid water are investigated. The adopted methodology relies on the combination of molecular dynamics and electronic structure calculations. Born-Oppenheimer molecular dynamics with the Becke and Lee-Yang-Parr functionals for exchange and correlation, respectively, and includes an empirical correction (BLYP-D3) functional and classical molecular [...]

Seed priming with iron and zinc in bread wheat: effects in germination, mitosis and grain yield.

2018-03-29T07:48:17+00:00 July 31st, 2012|

Currently, the biofortification of crops like wheat with micronutrients such as iron (Fe) and zinc (Zn) is extremely important due to the deficiencies of these micronutrients in the human diet and in soils. Agronomic biofortification with Fe and Zn can be done through different exogenous strategies such as soil application, foliar spraying, and seed priming. [...]
