Effect of osmotic, alkaline, acid or thermal stresses on the growth and inhibition of Listeria monocytogenes
Five strains of Listeria monocytogenes (a, b, c, d and e) isolated from industrial plants have been subjected to different osmotic, alkaline, acid or thermal stresses. The effects of these treatmentsExpand

Human erythrocyte band 3 polymorphism (band 3 Memphis): characterization of the structural modification (Lys 56----Glu) by protein chemistry methods.
Band 3 variants occur rather frequently in different populations. Based on sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)-polyacrylamide electrophoretic properties, a widespread polymorphism (band 3 Memphis) has beenExpand

α-Hemoglobin Stabilizing Protein (AHSP), a Kinetic Scheme of the Action of a Human Mutant, AHSPV56G*
A kinetic analysis has been made of the interaction of α-Hb chains with a mutant α-hemoglobin stabilizing protein, AHSPV56G, which is the first case of an AHSP mutation associated with clinicalExpand

Combined effects of NaCl, NaOH, and biocides (monolaurin or lauric acid) on inactivation of Listeria monocytogenes and Pseudomonas spp.
This study highlighted combinations of chemical stresses that could decrease or eliminate Listeria monocytogenes and Pseudomonas spp. surviving in food processing plants. Strains of L. monocytogenes,Expand

Phosphorylation sites in human erythrocyte band 3 protein.
The human red cell anion-exchanger, band 3 protein, is one of the main phosphorylated proteins of the erythrocyte membrane. Previous studies from this laboratory have shown that ATP-depletion of theExpand

Hemoglobin Thionville. An alpha-chain variant with a substitution of a glutamate for valine at NA-1 and having an acetylated methionine NH2 terminus.
In hemoglobin (Hb) Thionville, the substitution of a glutamic acid for the alpha-chain NH2-terminal valine inhibits the cleavage of the initiator methionine which is then acetylated. The elongationExpand

Effect of several decontamination procedures on Listeria monocytogenes growing in biofilms.
Listeria monocytogenes is a pathogenic bacterium which has been implicated in several foodborne illnesses. This microorganism grows into biofilms attached to the surfaces in food-processing plants,Expand

Diacetyl and acetoin production from the co-metabolism of citrate and xylose by Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. mesenteroides
Abstract The co-metabolism of citrate plus xylose by Leuconostoc mesenteroides subsp. mesenteroides results in a growth stimulation, an increase in d-lactate and acetate production and repression ofExpand

Unstable alpha‐chain hemoglobin variants with factitious beta‐thalassemia biosynthetic ratio: Hb questembert (α131[H14] Ser→Pro) and Hb Caen (α132[H15] Val→Gly)
Hb Questembert [α131(H14) Ser→Pro] was found in several members of a French family suffering from congenital Heinz body anemia. The unstable hemoglobin was expressed in the peripheral red blood cellsExpand

Decreased G3PDH binding to erythrocyte membranes in sickle cell disease.
Several membrane abnormalities have been described in red cells from patients with sickle cell disease, responsible for chronic hemolytic anemia. We describe here a 35-50% inhibition of the bindingExpand
