Coronary Progenitor Cells and Soluble Biomarkers in Cardiovascular Prognosis after Coronary Angioplasty Juan Antonio Suárez-Cuenca1, Rogelio Robledo-Nolasco2, Marco Antonio Alcántara-Meléndez2, Luis Javier Díaz-Hernandez1, Eduardo Vera-Gómez1, Alejandro Hernández-Patricio1, Karla Susana Sánchez-Díaz1, Juan Ariel Gutiérrez-Buendía1, Alejandra Contreras-Ramos3, Atzin Suá Ruíz-Hernández1, Rebeca Pérez-Cabeza de Vaca1, Paul Mondragón-Terán1 1Experimental Metabolism and Clinical Research Laboratory & Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering Laboratory, 2Hemodynamics Unit, Cardiology Department, Centro Médico Nacional "20 de Noviembre" ISSSTE, 3 Development of major adverse cardiovascular events, which impact cardiovascular prognosis after coronary angioplasty, are influenced by the extent of coronary damage and vascular repair. The use of novel coronary cellular and soluble biomarkers, reactive to vascular damage and repair, are useful to predict the development of MACEs and prognosis.
Analyzing the Communication Between Monocytes and Primary Breast Cancer Cells in an Extracellular Matrix Extract (ECME)-based Three-dimensional System Nancy Adriana Espinoza-Sánchez*1,2, Gloria Karina Chimal-Ramírez*1, Ezequiel Moisés Fuentes-Pananá1 1 Here, we describe a three-dimensional culture method to analyze the morphology of primary breast cancer cells, as well as to study their direct/indirect interactions with monocytes and the outcomes such as collagen degradation, immune cell recruitment, cell invasion, and promotion of cancer-related inflammation.
fMRI Mapping of Brain Activity Associated with the Vocal Production of Consonant and Dissonant Intervals Nadia González-García1, Pablo L. Rendón2 1 The neural correlates of listening to consonant and dissonant intervals have been widely studied, but the neural mechanisms associated with production of consonant and dissonant intervals are less well known. In this article, behavioral tests and fMRI are combined with interval identification and singing tasks to describe these mechanisms.
