      Here we report a genome-wide association study for non-pathological pinna morphology in over 5,000 Latin Americans. We find genome-wide significant association at seven genomic regions affecting: lobe size and attachment, ...
    • Heparin activates Wnt signaling for neuronal morphogenesis 

      Colombres, Marcela; Henríquez, Juan Pablo; Reig, Germán; Scheu, Jessica; Calderón, Rosario; Alvarez, Alejandra; Brandan, Enrique; Inestrosa, Nibaldo C. (WILEY-LISS, DIV JOHN WILEY & SONS INC, 2008-09)
      Writ factors are secreted ligands that affect different aspects of the nervous system behavior like neurodevelopment, synaptogenesis and neurodegeneration. In different model systems, Wnt signaling has been demonstrated ...
