Binge drinking represents a social and health problem in our society, this practice is well rooted among our young people, who are at a stage especially vulnerable to the harmful effects of the intake in large quantities of alcohol. Previous studies have shown that ethanol induces neuroinflammation. In this study we intend to evaluate the role of exosomes (extracellular microvesicles of 50-100 nm in size, which carry proteins, RNA, miRNA and lipids) in this proinflammatory environment. To this end, exosomes will be purified and studied from wild and TLR4 gene-deficient mice, as well as primary bark astrocyte cultures from both...

Materials based on portland cement can be attacked by external environments rich in sulphates (selenite waters, marine waters), generating a process of expansion by formation of etringición and gypsum. Expansion determination can be carried out by simple means, however, the use of non-destructive techniques could enable such determination more quickly, accurately and universally. Such non-destructive techniques become more sensitive and allow the evolution of expansion from initial data expansion. The most appropriate techniques are those based on acoustic resonance spectroscopy by impact and those based on ultrasounds.
It is intended to analyze the changes in mortar structure by means of non-destructive...

A Grid is composed by a set of computational and data resources located in different
administrative domain that are managed under the framework of a Virtual Organization (VO)
and aim to resolve scientific problems.
There are specific VOs both national (VO tut.vo.ibergrid.eu) and international (Gilda
testbed that provide specific Grid infrastructures for educational purposes. However, these VOs
have limited interest for educational activities since they can only be used from the Grid user
point of view and not as administrators of the resources and services. This is because they use
preallocated resources and it is impossible add or remove resources in the existing infrastructure
in a dynamic and...

Delottococcus aberiae De Lotto (Hemiptera:Pseudoccocidae) is a recently citrus pest in Spain. It was appeared in 2009 in Les Valls. This pest produced several damages on oranges and mandarins fruit. During all these years the insect has been scattered; being currently present in different region as Camp de Morvedre and Plana Baixa (in persimmon crops too). Even all the efforts that were made during these years there is still a great unknowledge of some important aspects of the pseudococcid, as morphological, biological as and ecological level. It makes necessary to deepen in these aspects in order to can improve the...

In this Final Master Project we are going to control the water quality in a high density aquaculture experiment. This experiment consists on a bioflocs system that allow us to increase the productivity and to reduce the environmental impacts of aquaculture. That is possible because we are working with a closed system without water renovation, in this system water quality parameters must be controlled. Among the monitorized parameters we measure the folllowing: pH, conductivity, dissolved oxigen, amonnia, nitrite, nitrate and reactive soluble phosphorus. In addition, we are going to analyze the photosynthetic pigments with High Pressure Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) to...

This MSc. thesis deals with Mixed Integer Linear programming models applied to
capacitated multiple item multiple level lot sizing production planning problem. The goal
of these models is decide the Master Production Schedule of several items over a planning
horizon, minimising the total cost, as much production as holding. Methodological
proposal is started with easy models and the complexity is increased until the lot sizing
constraint is taken into account, as much for end product as for its components, due
to nowadays some companies have to deal with this problem. Mathematical models are
presented together with its solution using the Excel Solver and its GAMS formulation to,

Valencian agriculture is characterized by several structural weaknesses that hinder its growth. The
first consequence of these weakness is a continuous loss of profitability in the farms, becoming a
progressive abandonment of the same ones.
This situation causes the Comunitat Valenciana has a need to promote policies that can contribute
to solving these weaknesses and allow to reinforce the competitiveness of the sector and lay the
foundations of a sustainable growth economically and environmentally. Thus, the Rural
Development Program (PDR) aims to execute the programming of the activities that the Generalitat
Valenciana proposes to all the areas of the rural development.
The present work aims to enumerate the...
