In T cells, the PI3K pathway promotes proliferation and survival induced by Ag or growth factors, in part by inactivating the FOXO transcription factor 1. We now report that FOXO1 controls the expression of L-selectin, an essential homing molecule, in human T lymphocytes. This control is already operational in unprimed T cells and involves a transcriptional(More)
The availability of genetic tests to detect different mutations in the myostatin gene allows the identification of heterozygous animals and would warrant the superiority of these animals for slaughter performance if this superiority is confirmed. Thus, 2 mutations of this gene, Q204X and nt821, were studied in 3 French beef breeds in the program Qualvigène.(More)
The objectives of the study were to evaluate allelic frequencies and to test the association of polymorphisms in the calpastatin (CAST) and µ-calpain (CAPN1) genes with meat tenderness in 3 French beef breeds. A total of 1,114 Charolais, 1,254 Limousin, and 981 Blonde d'Aquitaine purebred young bulls were genotyped for 3 SNP in the CAST gene and 4 SNP in(More)
Fat content is an essential component of meat quality. Fat content and fatty tissue content were determined by dual energy X-ray absorption on 3 types of meat: pork meat (mixture of longissimus dorsi and fat) and beef meat (longissimus dorsi and pectoralis profondus). The measurements were carried out with a medical densitometer, the SOPHOS L-XRA usually(More)
Improving the traits that underlie meat quality is a major challenge in the beef industry. The objective of this paper was to detect QTL linked to sensory meat quality traits in 3 French beef cattle breeds. We genotyped 1,059, 1,219, and 947 young bulls and their sires belonging to the Charolais, Limousin, and Blonde d'Aquitaine breeds, respectively, using(More)
2300 veal calves were used to compare the ability of chromameters to measure the veal meat color on-line and to develop a relationship between instrumental and visual assessments to predict the color score according to the EC-system of classification. The meat color was assessed subjectively by 3 trained judges and objectively by 2 chromameters CR300 and(More)
Idiotypic-like interactions between mAbs directed against cytidine (Cyd) or guanosine (Guo) nucleosides were characterized. These mAbs, Cyd-1 (IgG2b, kappa), Guo-1 (IgG1, kappa) and Guo-2 (IgG1, kappa) were derived from splenocytes of A/J mice immunized with Cyd-KLH or Guo-KLH and recognized the nucleoside base moieties involved in hydrogen bonding. The(More)
Transfer into F1 Igha/b mice of splenocytes from Igha mice sensitized once against B cells from an Ighb congenic strain induces total, chronic, and IgG2ab (IgG2a of the Ighb haplotype)-specific allotype suppression in these recipients. We previously demonstrated that both the CD4+ and CD8+ T subsets were necessary for inducing suppression, but that CD8+,(More)
We have previously described an anti-IgG2ab T cell activity in normal Igha/a mice. Their congenic partner at the Igh locus (Ighb/b) and Igha/b hybrids bred from them, do not display this T cell activity but express IgG2ab. As these mice are supposed to possess the same genetic elements related to this potential T cell repertoire, only somatic selection(More)
