Membrane microdomains are defined as highly dynamic, sterol- and sphingolipid-enriched domains that resist to solubilization by non-ionic detergents. In plants, these so-called Detergent Insoluble Membrane (DIM) fractions have been isolated from plasma membrane by using conventional ultracentrifugation on density gradient (G). In animals, a rapid (R)(More)
We report here the 7,259,392-bp draft genome of Pseudomonas sp. strain ADP. This is a bacterial strain that was first isolated in the 1990s from soil for its ability to mineralize the herbicide atrazine. It has extensively been studied as a model to understand the atrazine biodegradation pathway. This genome will be used as a reference and compared to(More)
Two views prevail concerning the significance of H. heidelbergensis in Middle Pleistocene human evolution. H. heidelbergensis sensu stricto refers to a European chronospecies of H. neanderthalensis while H. heidelbergensis sensu lato is considered to be an Afro-European species ancestral to modern humans and Neandertals. Here, we test the phylogenetic(More)
Truffles, i.e. tree root-associated fungal fruiting bodies, clearly range among the world’s most exclusive delicacies. Despite the quite restricted natural geographic occurrence of one of the most renowned fungal species, namely Tuber melanosporum, the development of inoculation procedures in the late 1960s made it possible to enlarge its production area in(More)
L’espèce Homo heidelbergensis a fait l’objet de récentes tentatives de redéfinition. Ces études basées principalement sur l’utilisation de caractères morphologiques valident l’existence de ce taxon au Pléistocène moyen. Il représenterait une espèce afro-européenne ancestrale aux Homo sapiens et aux Homo neanderthalensis ou une chrono-espèce des(More)
