Calle Berlín, 109 by Susana Vallejo( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in 3 languages and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En la calle Berlín, en pleno Eixample barcelonés, hay un edificio corriente. Allí viven un colombiano, una prostituta de lujo, un matrimonio de ancianos, una madre separada con dos hijos y un oficinista soltero. ¡Ah!, y un fantasma: la anciana malhumorada del último piso que murió hace meses, aunque nadie se ha dado cuenta, y que se dedica a vagar de un piso a otro cotilleando la vida de sus vecinos. Nada hubiera llamado la atención si Gerard, un policía de baja indefinida, no hubiera recibido la llamada de Pep, su antiguo compañero, dos días antes de ser asesinado. En su buzón de voz quedaron grabadas estas palabras: <<Quiero hablarte de algo que he decubierto en la calle Berlín, en el 109>>. Atraído por el deseo de vengar a su amigo y, por qué no decirlo, sin nada mejor que hacer, Gerard decide pasarse por allí. Pero nunca hubiera imaginado que la búsqueda del asesino de Pep pudiera estar rodeada de tantos misterios; tantos como vecinos hay en el edificio, pues cada uno oculta un secreto que cambiará la vida de los demás para siempre. -- p.

Cosecha negra by Susana Vallejo( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Porta coeli tells the legend of another World, an imaginary world full of strangely-colored beings and unreal landscapes, but at the same time very like ours. The real protagonist of this tetralogy is in fact this World. Porta Coeli tells the story of the historical milestones which made this possible, and why things are as they are and not some other way. Nothing is fated; the characters carve out their own destinies with their ingenuity, intelligence and valor

5 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

RESUMEN: Raquel da comienzo a un nuevo curso en la facultad. Desde las primeras clases se une a su grupo de amigas de nuevo estudiante llamado David. Y con él las percepciones de Raquel comienzan a desarrollarse misteriosamente hasta llevarla al borde de la locura ... o de la muerte. Primero fueron las pesadillas, luego las misteriosas criaturas entrevistas en los pasillos de la universidad, en la cafetería, en las calles. Nada hacía presagiar entonces que sería el último curso para la joven, que todo iba a cambiar para siempre, que su mundo y todo lo que conocía y daba por sentado estaba a punto de disolverse como el cacao en un vaso de leche, para vivir

La llave del secreto by Susana Vallejo( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and Catalan and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At last the inhabitants of the World, in which Raquel and David rule, coexist with those of the East. But it's far from a peaceful coexistence. Fear of the strange inhabitants of the World and their powers is always present, often becoming pure terror or open hatred. Much hard work has gone into showing that together they can achieve great things. Foundations and schools have been created which investigate, teach and help to develop the faculties that most of the World-dwellers possess; universitiess, hospitals and institutions collaborate to exploit their abilities; some kinds of neurological operations always take place with someone from the World guiding and aiding the surgeon; mental illnesses with difficult prognoses and cures are now becoming understood

Soluble dipeptidyl peptidase-4 induces microvascular endothelial dysfunction through proteinase-activated receptor-2 and thromboxane A2 release( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Background: Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4) is a key protein in glucose homeostasis and a pharmacological target in type 2 diabetes mellitus. This study explored whether the novel adipokine soluble DPP4 (sDPP4) can cause endothelial dysfunction, an early marker of impaired vascular reactivity. Method: Reactivity was studied in mesenteric arteries from 3-month-old female mice, using a small vessel myograph. Thromboxane A2 (TXA2 ) release was explored in cultured human coronary artery endothelial cells by enzyme immunoassay. Results: Neither the contractility to noradrenaline nor the endothelium-independent relaxations induced by sodium nitroprusside were modified by sDPP4. However, sDPP4 impaired in a concentration-dependent manner the endothelium-dependent relaxation elicited by acetylcholine. The DPP4 inhibitors K579 and linagliptin prevented the defective relaxation induced by sDPP4, as did the protease-activated receptor 2 (PAR2) inhibitor GB83. Downstream of PAR2, the cyclooxygenase (COX) inhibitor indomethacin, the COX2 inhibitor celecoxib or the thromboxane receptors blocker SQ29548 prevented the deleterious effects of sDPP4. Accordingly, sDPP4 triggered the release of TXA2 by endothelial cells, whereas TXA2 release was prevented by inhibiting DPP4, PAR2 or COX. Conclusion: In summary, these findings reveal sDPP4 as a direct mediator of endothelial dysfunction, acting through PAR2 activation and the release of vasoconstrictor prostanoids. By interfering with these actions, DPP4 inhibitors might help preserving endothelial function in the context of cardiometabolic diseases.

Complete blockade of the vasorelaxant effects of angiotensin‐(1–7) and bradykinin in murine microvessels by antagonists of the receptor Mas( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Key points   Two distinct angiotensin‐(1–7) [Ang‐(1–7)] receptor blockers, A779 and d‐Pro‐Ang‐(1–7), can completely prevent Ang‐(1–7)‐induced vasorelaxation.   Genetic deficiency of Mas completely prevents vascular responses to Ang‐(1–7).   Genetic deficiency of Mas completely prevents vascular responses to other NO‐dependent vasorelaxants (bradykinin).   Mas plays a key role in NO‐mediated vasodilatation by modulating vasorelaxant‐mediated phosphorylation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase in endothelial cells. Abstract  The heptapeptide angiotensin‐(1–7) is a biologically active metabolite of angiotensin II, the predominant peptide of the renin–angiotensin system. Recently, we have shown that the receptor Mas is associated with angiotensin‐(1–7)‐induced signalling and mediates, at least in part, the vasodilatory properties of angiotensin‐(1–7). However, it remained controversial whether an additional receptor could account for angiotensin‐(1–7)‐induced vasorelaxation. Here, we used two different angiotensin‐(1–7) antagonists, A779 and d‐Pro‐angiotensin‐(1–7), to address this question and also to study their influence on the vasodilatation induced by bradykinin. Isolated mesenteric microvessels from both wild‐type and Mas‐deficient C57Bl/6 mice were precontracted with noradrenaline, and vascular reactivity to angiotensin‐(1–7) and bradykinin was subsequently studied using a small‐vessel myograph. Furthermore, mechanisms for Mas effects were investigated in primary human umbilical vein endothelial cells. Both angiotensin‐(1–7) and bradykinin triggered a concentration‐dependent vasodilatation in wild‐type microvessels, which was absent in the presence of a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor. In these vessels, the pre‐incubation with the Mas antagonists A779 or d‐Pro‐angiotensin‐(1–7) totally abolished the vasodilatory capacity of both angiotensin‐(1–7) and bradykinin, which was nitric oxide mediated. Accordingly, Mas‐deficient microvessels lacked the capacity to relax in response to either angiotensin‐(1–7) or bradykinin. Pre‐incubation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells with A779 prevented bradykinin‐mediated NO generation and NO synthase phosphorylation at serine 1177. The angiotensin‐(1–7) antagonists A779 and d‐Pro‐angiotensin‐(1–7) equally block Mas, which completely controls the angiotensin‐(1–7)‐induced vasodilatation in mesenteric microvessels. Importantly, Mas also appears to be a critical player in NO‐mediated vasodilatation induced by renin–angiotensin system‐independent agonists by altering phosphorylation of NO synthase
