NMR characterization of I19L peptide interacting with FtsZ

Marie-Jeanne Clément, Kuoch Boi-Trinh, Ha-Duong Tap, Joshi Vandana, Loic Hamon, Flavio Toma, Patrick Curmi & Philippe Savarin
FtsZ is a prokaryotic tubulin-like protein. Despite a low degree of sequence identity with tubulin, it presents the same folding pattern and some similar functions, notably in cell division. Indeed, FtsZ and tubulin polymerize to form bundles and microtubules, respectively, which are essential for cell cytokinesis. STD-NMR and TRNOESY experiments revealed that I19L interacts with FtsZ and folds upon its binding but in a way different from what we observed with tubulin. These NMR data...

Search for nuclear magnetic resonance evidence of spin accumulation

Aurore Rudolf
Developments towards an understanding of the nature of conductance at the interface between two different metallic layers – ferromagnetic and non magnetic – as well as the discovery of giant magnetoresistance have stirred attention from both the scientific community as well as the electronics industry, with the prospect of using the spin of electrons in fast, nano-sized electronic devices. The spin polarization obtained by driving a current through a magnetic nanostructure is referred to as...

Response of Caenorhabditis elegans to infection by Drechmeria coniospora

Jonathan Ewbank
Caenorhabditis elegans is a widely used invertebrate model organism. We are using C. elegans to dissect the molecular basis of host-pathogen interactions. We are investigating host innate immune defences. There is mounting evidence that resistance to infection in the nematode involves both a dedicated antimicrobial response and a more general reaction to infection-associated cellular stress. Our studies indicate that multiple signal pathways cooperate to control the expression of antimicrobial peptides and proteins. We are starting...

Stem cell-based cardiovascular tissue engineering

Thomas Krähenbühl
Cardiovascular diseases, including myocardial infarction, are the leading cause of death worldwide for both men and women. Current therapies are limited by the restricted intrinsic regeneration capacity of the heart and by the lack of organs for transplantation. Human embryonic stem (hES) cells have the capacity to differentiate into various cell types, including vascular cells for forming de novo blood vessels to potentially repair the infarcted heart after myocardial infarction. Our goal was to improve...

Suz12 ChIP-on-chip of mouse embryonic stem cell

Pierre Cauchy, Touati Benoukraf, Romain Fenouil, Frédéric Koch, Jean-Christophe Andrau & Pierre Ferrier
We aim to identify target sequences of suz12, a member of the polycomb group proteins (PcG) PRC2 (polycomb repressive complex 2). We study the role played by this polycomb complex on genetic plasticity during embryonic development in undifferentiated mouse embryonic stem cells (day 8). Suz12 is required for trimethylation of the tail of histone H3 on lysine 27 (H3K27me3). This epigenetic modification of chromatin induces dynamic repression of many target genes involved in developmental pathways....

The long-term temporal behaviour of the seismicity of the Dead Sea Fault Zone and its implication for time-dependent seismic hazard assessments : a report related to the DFG project Geo-DESIRE (Geoscientific Dead Sea Integrated Research Project), with participating institutions from Germany, Israel, Jordan and Palestine territories.

Grünthal Gottfried, Hakimhashemi Amir, Schelle Holger, Bosse Christian & Wahlström Rutger
The paper consists of two main elements: (1) the creation of a harmonized seismicitydata file for the eastern Mediterranean area and the generation of a classical timeindependentPSHA, and (2) the extension of the earthquake model of the timeindependentapproach to a newly developed time‐dependent PSHA and the comparisonwith the results of (1).

Response of Caenorhabditis elegans to infection by Drechmeria coniospora at 12 hours post exposure

Jonathan Ewbank
Transcription profiling of Caenorhabditis elegans after an exposure of 4 hours to the fungal pathogen Drechmeria coniospora, and a post exposure of 12 hours. This experiment has been deposited in the Array Express database under reference number E-MEXP-767.

Natural killer cells and innate immunity

Eric Vivier
Natural Killer (NK) cells are lymphocytes of the innate immune system that recognize and induce the lysis of a variety of target cells, including virally-infected cells, tumor cells, and allogenic cells without prior specific sensitization. In addition, NK cells elaborate a variety of regulatory cytokines including IFNg, TGFß1, TNFa, IL-1bß, IL-10, G-CSF, and GM-CSF and CC-chemokines, such as RANTES, MIP-1a and MIP-1bß which are involved in the elimination of intracellular pathogens in vivo, as well...

Fluorine in an heteroaromatic context:functionalization of halopyridines

Thierry Rausis
The organometallic approach to the functionalization of arenes and heteroarenes has recently been investigated by our group introducing modifications of the standard methods. This includes, in particular, the basicity-driven heavy halogen migration, which allows the introduction of a functional group at a not directly accessible position. Then, some attentions were reported toward nucleophilic aromatic substitution and especially to a regio-controlled attack at heteroarenes. Bulky trialkylsilyl groups were used to shield a given position by steric...

Anode dusting during the electrolytic production of aluminium

Timea Tordai
The disintegration of the carbon anodes during the electrolysis of alumina produces dust particles contaminating the electrolytic bath. This phenomenon, called dusting, is one of the most deleterious Al electrolysis failures, as it leads to a significant deterioration of the current efficiency, which causes severe economical losses for Al smelters. The mechanisms at work, related to carbon oxidations leading to the selective burning of the binder matrix that is responsible of the anode dusting, were...

The Complexity of Integrating Routing Decisions in Public Transportation Models

Marie Schmidt & Anita Schöbel
To model and solve optimization problems arising in public transportation, data about the passengers is necessary and has to be included in the models in any phase of the planning process. Many approaches assume a two-step procedure: in a first step, the data about the passengers is distributed over the public transportation network using traffic-assignment procedures. In a second step, the actual planning of lines, timetables, etc. takes place. This approach ignores that for most...
