The accumulation of sugars in grape berries requires the co-ordinate expression of sucrose transporters, invertases, and monosaccharide transporters. A monosaccharide transporter homologue (VvHT1, Vitis vinifera hexose transporter 1) has previously been isolated from grape berries at the veraison stage, and its expression was shown to be regulated by sugars(More)
Five hundred and six EST-derived markers, 313 SSR markers and 26 BAC end-derived or SCAR markers were anchored by PCR on a subset of a Cabernet Sauvignon BAC library representing six genome equivalents pooled in three dimensions. In parallel, the 12,351 EST clusters of the grapevine UniGene set (build #11) from NCBI were used to design 12,125 primers pairs(More)
INTRODUCTION Hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia (HHT) is a genetic disorder associated with abnormal angiogenesis and disabling epistaxis, for which bevacizumab is reported to be a new therapeutic option. In the present study, bevacizumab transport in porcine nasal mucosa was investigated to determine antibody bioavailability. MATERIAL AND METHODS(More)
AIMS Infliximab, an anti-tumour necrosis factor α monoclonal antibody, has profoundly modified the treatment of several inflammatory diseases. The objective was to assess the influence of methotrexate on the variability of infliximab pharmacokinetics and concentration-effect relationship in axial ankylosing spondylitis (AAS) patients. METHODS Twenty-six(More)
AIMS This study aimed at describing adalimumab pharmacokinetics (PK) and the concentration-effect relationship of adalimumab using pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) modelling in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). METHODS Adalimumab PK and PK-PD data were obtained from a multicentric observational study. Adalimumab (40 mg) was administered(More)
In grapevine (Vitis vinifera), as in many crops, soluble sugar content is a major component of yield and economical value. This paper identifies and characterizes a Glycogen Synthase Kinase3 protein kinase, cloned from a cDNA library of grape Cabernet Sauvignon berries harvested at the ripening stage. This gene, called VvSK1, was mainly expressed in(More)
BACKGROUND During grape berry ripening, the vacuoles accumulate water, sugars and secondary metabolites, causing great impact in plant productivity and wine quality. However, the molecular basis of these compartmentation processes is still poorly understood. As in many species, the major bottleneck to study these aspects in grapevine is to obtain highly(More)
