La relevancia creciente de los esfingolípidos en la biología celular

There is no translation available.

Los esfingolípidos, lípidos que se caracterizan por su estructura química, se han revelado como inesperados protagonistas de la señalización celular. Un grupo del Instituto de Química Avanzada de Cataluña del CSIC estudia diferentes esfingolípidos naturales y ha sintetizado algunos análogos que podrían aplicarse al tratamiento de la enfermedad pulmonar obstructiva crónica (EPOC). Es, además, uno de los pocos laboratorios europeos y el único en España que realiza mapas de esfingolípidos de tejidos y células para laboratorios externos y empresas.
