TheAFLP (amplified fragment length polymorphism) technique was adapted to carry out genetic analysis in maritime pine, a species characterized by a large genome size (24 pg/C). A genetic linkage map was constructed for one F1 individual based on 239 AFLP and 127 RAPD (randomly amplified polymorphic DNA) markers. Markers were scored on megagametophytes (1n)(More)
When a conifer shoot is displaced from its vertical position, compression wood (CW) is formed on the under side and can eventually return the shoot to its original position. Changes in cell wall structure and chemistry associated with CW are likely to result from differential gene/protein expression. Two-dimensional polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of(More)
This study presents an improved method for the complete transfer of proteins separated by two-dimensional gel electrophoresis to a membrane, specifically designed for the screening and identification of antigens recognized by autoantibodies in patients with breast cancer (BCP) and healthy volunteers. This paper reports the evaluation of this technique using(More)
This study demonstrates the feasibility of generating sequence- based markers in Pinus species, from data available in electronic databases. Nucleotide sequences from 23 partially or fully characterized cDNAs or genomic sequences of pines were used to design PCR primers for amplifying targeted fragments of genomic DNA from Maritime and Scots pine.

OBJECTIVE Despite normal sperm parameters, 5% of in vitro fertilization (IVF) attempts result in an unpredictable failure of fertilization. In 56% of the cases, there is no obvious oocyte anomaly, but lack of sperm binding to the zona pellucida. This study aims to contribute to clarify the male molecular causes of failures in IVF, which are undetected by(More)
UV light and some medications are known to trigger lupus erythematosus (LE). A common mechanism underlying the immunopathologic effect, resulting from exposure to these two seemingly unrelated factors, remains unknown. The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) plays a key role in the regulation of IL-22 production in humans and can be activated by both(More)
Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is characterized by a highly variable clinical course with 2 extreme subsets: indolent, ZAP70(-) and mutated immunoglobulin heavy chain gene (M-CLL); and aggressive, ZAP70(+) and unmutated immunoglobulin heavy chain (UM-CLL). Given the long-term suspicion of antigenic stimulation as a primum movens in the disease, the role(More)
Invasive aspergillosis (IA) is a major threat for immunocompromised patients. Diagnostic difficulties often delay specific treatment initiation, which increases mortality. Finding new biomarkers to improve and speed accurate diagnosis is thus vital. To investigate the ability of proteomic methods for discovering new biomarkers of IA, we used a DIGE approach(More)
OBJECTIVE To identify the male molecular causes of failures of IVF (with a deficient binding of spermatozoa to the zona pellucida, without any obvious oocyte anomaly), which are undetected by classical sperm analysis. DESIGN Case-control prospective study. SETTING University hospital. PATIENT(S) Proteomic profiles of spermatozoa in patients with a(More)
Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) and image analysis are currently used for proteome analysis in maritime pine (Pinus pinaster Ait.). This study presents a database of expressed proteins extracted from needles and xylem, two important tissues for growth and wood formation. Electrophoresis was carried out by isoelectric focusing (IEF) in the first(More)
