Seminal fluid proteins (Sfps) alter female behaviour and physiology and can mediate sexual conflict. In Drosophila melanogaster, a single Sfp, the sex peptide (SP), triggers remarkable post-mating responses in females, including altered fecundity, feeding, immunity and sexual receptivity. These effects can favour the evolutionary interests of males while(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the efficacy and toxicity of ifosfamide in combination with cisplatin and vinblastine in non-operable non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS A total of 136 patients with stage III or IV NSCLC were randomized to either PV (cisplatin, 120 mg/m2, and vinblastine, 6 mg/m2) or VIP (PV with the addition of ifosfamide, 3 g/m2) every 3(More)
The ascomycete Botrytis cinerea is a broad-spectrum plant pathogen. Here, we describe the first macroarray transcriptomic study of the fungus in real-time infection conditions. Infection of Arabidopsis thaliana leaves by B.cinerea was monitored using macroarrays, containing 3032 genes. Variance analysis revealed that 7% of B.cinerea genes are differentially(More)
A previous transcriptomic analysis of 3,032 fungal genes identified the Botrytis cinerea PIE3 (BcPIE3) gene to be up-regulated early in planta (A. Gioti, A. Simon, P. Le Pêcheur, C. Giraud, J. M. Pradier, M. Viaud, and C. Levis, J. Mol. Biol. 358:372-386, 2006). In the present study, BcPIE3 was disrupted in order to determine its implication in(More)
