  • Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups and serum levels of anti-oxidant enzymes in patients with osteoarthritis 

    Fernández-Moreno, Mercedes; Soto-Hermida, Ángel; Pértega-Díaz, Sonia; Oreiro, Natividad; Fernández-López, Carlos; Rego-Pérez, Ignacio; Blanco García, Francisco J (BioMed Central, 2011-11-22)
    [Abstract] Background: Oxidative stress play a main role in the initiation and progression of the OA disease and leads to the degeneration of mitochondria. To prevent this, the chondrocytes possess a well-coordinated ...
  • Mitochondrial haplogroups define two phenotypes of osteoarthritis 

    Fernández-Moreno, Mercedes; Soto-Hermida, Ángel; Oreiro, Natividad; Pértega-Díaz, Sonia; Fernández-López, Carlos; Rego-Pérez, Ignacio; Blanco García, Francisco J (Frontiers, 2012-05-11)
    [Abstract] Objective: To assess a mitochondrion-related phenotype in patients with osteoarthritis (OA). Methods: Serum levels of the following OA-related biomarkers: matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1); MMP-3; MMP-13; ...
  • Longitudinal analysis of blood DNA methylation identifies mechanisms of response to tumor necrosis factor inhibitor therapy in rheumatoid arthritis 

    Juliá, Antonio; Gómez, Antonio; López-Lasanta, María; Blanco García, Francisco J; Erra, Alba; Fernández-Nebro, Antonio; Juan Mas, Antonio; Pérez-García, Carolina; García Vivar, María Luz; Sánchez-Fernández, Simón; Alperi-López, Mercedes; Sanmartí, Raimon; Ortiz, Ana María; Marras Fernández-Cid, Carlos; Díaz-Torné, César; Moreno, Estefanía; Li, Tianlu; Martínez-Mateu, Sergio H.; Absher, Devin M.; Myers, Richard M.; Tornero Molina, Jesús; Marsal, Sara (Elsevier, 2022-05-13)
    [Abstract] Background: Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, immune-mediated inflammatory disease of the joints that has been associated with variation in the peripheral blood methylome. In this study, we aim to identify ...
  • mtDNA Haplogroup A Enhances the Effect of Obesity on the Risk of Knee OA in a Mexican Population 

    Ramos-Louro, Paula; Arellano Pérez Vertti, Rubén Daniel; López Reyes, Alberto; Martínez-Nava, Gabriela Angélica; Espinosa, Rolando; Pineda, Carlos; González-Galarza, Faviel Francisco; Argüello Astorga, Rafael; Aguilar Muñiz, Lizette Sarai; Hernández Terán, Fernando; Parra Torres, Nancy Marbella; Durán Sotuela, Alejandro; Fernández-Moreno, Mercedes; Balboa-Barreiro, Vanesa; Blanco García, Francisco J; Rego-Pérez, Ignacio (Nature, 2022-03-25)
    [Abstract] To evaluate the influence of mitochondrial DNA haplogroups on the risk of knee OA in terms of their interaction with obesity, in a population from Mexico. Samples were obtained from (n = 353) knee OA patients ...
  • Reduced Levels of H₂S in Diabetes-Associated Osteoarthritis Are Linked to Hyperglycaemia, Nrf-2/HO-1 Signalling Downregulation and Chondrocyte Dysfunction 

    Piñeiro-Ramil, María; Burguera, Elena F.; Hermida-Gómez, Tamara; Caramés, Beatriz; Oreiro, Natividad; Meijide-Faílde, Rosa; Blanco García, Francisco J; Vaamonde-García, Carlos (MDPI, 2022-03-25)
    [Abstract] Different findings indicate that type 2 diabetes is an independent risk factor for osteoarthritis (OA). However, the mechanisms underlying the connection between both diseases remain unclear. Changes in the ...
