      Nintedanib decreases muscle fibrosis and improves muscle function in a murine model of dystrophinopathy  [Article]

      Piñol Jurado, Patricia; Suárez Calvet, Xavier; Fernández Simón, Esther; Gallardo, Eduard; Gómez Gálvez, Pedro; Escudero Cuadrado, Luis María; Díaz Manera, Jordi (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
      Duchenne muscle dystrophy (DMD) is a genetic disorder characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness. Dystrophin deficiency induces instability of the sarcolemma during muscle contraction that leads to muscle necrosis ...

      Rules of tissue packing involving different cell types: human muscle organization  [Article]

      Sánchez Gutiérrez, Daniel; Sáez Manzano, Aurora; Gómez Gálvez, Pedro; Paradas López, Carmen ‎; Escudero Cuadrado, Luis María (Nature Publishing Group, 2017)
      Natural packed tissues are assembled as tessellations of polygonal cells. These include skeletal muscles and epithelial sheets. Skeletal muscles appear as a mosaic composed of two different types of cells: the “slow” and ...

      Scutoids are a geometrical solution to three-dimensional packing of epithelia  [Article]

      Gómez Gálvez, Pedro; Vicente Munuera, Pablo; Tagua Jáñez, Antonio; Forja Barbosa, Cristina; Castro Rodríguez, Ana María; Letrán, Marta; Grima Ruiz, Clara Isabel; Bermúdez Gallardo, Marina; Serrano Pérez-Higueras, Óscar; Márquez Pérez, Alberto; Escudero Cuadrado, Luis María (Nature Publishing Group, 2018)
      As animals develop, tissue bending contributes to shape the organs into complex three-dimensional structures. However, the architecture and packing of curved epithelia remains largely unknown. Here we show by means of ...
