BACKGROUND INFORMATION CDC25 (cell division cycle 25) phosphatases function as activators of CDK (cyclin-dependent kinase)-cyclin complexes to regulate progression through the CDC. We have recently identified a pool of CDC25B at the centrosome of interphase cells that plays a role in regulating centrosome numbers. RESULTS In the present study, we(More)
Neuropeptide FF (NPFF) modulates the opioid system by exerting functional anti-opioid activity on neurons, the mechanism of which is unknown. By using a model of SH-SY5Y cells, we recently postulated that anti-opioid activity likely takes place upstream from the signaling cascade, suggesting that NPFF receptors could block opioid receptors by physical(More)
A framework and an algorithm are presented in order to remove stationary noise from images. This algorithm is called variational stationary noise remover. It can be interpreted both as a restoration method in a Bayesian framework and as a cartoon+texture decomposition method. In numerous denoising applications, the white noise assumption fails. For example,(More)
Aurora kinases are key cell cycle regulators and represent attractive new targets in cancer therapy. In this work we investigated the effect of specific inhibition of Aurora-A and Aurora-B on interphase microtubule dynamics using the GSK6000063A and AZD1152 HQPA compounds respectively. We show that Aurora-A inhibition results in microtubule network(More)
Today, Light Sheet Fluorescence Microscopy (LSFM) makes it possible to image fluorescent samples through depths of several hundreds of microns. However, LSFM also suffers from scattering, absorption and optical aberrations. Spatial variations in the refractive index inside the samples cause major changes to the light path resulting in loss of signal and(More)
Multicellular tumor spheroids are models of increasing interest for cancer and cell biology studies. They allow considering cellular interactions in exploring cell cycle and cell division mechanisms. However, 3D imaging of cell division in living spheroids is technically challenging and has never been reported. Here, we report a major breakthrough based on(More)
The covalent immobilization of a model peptide onto the MAMVE copolymer, via the formation of amide bonds, occurred in moderate yields in aqueous conditions. The improvement of the grafting reaction was achieved by adding at the amino terminus of the model peptide a sequence (tag) of three positively charged amino acids, lysine or arginine, and by taking(More)
CDK-cyclin complexes regulate centriole duplication and microtubule nucleation at specific cell cycle stages, although their exact roles in these processes remain unclear. As the activities of CDK-cyclins are themselves positively regulated by CDC25 phosphatases, we investigated the role of centrosomal CDC25B during interphase. We report that overexpression(More)
Inhomogeneity in thick biological specimens results in poor imaging by light microscopy, which deteriorates as the focal plane moves deeper into the specimen. Here, we have combined selective plane illumination microscopy (SPIM) with wavefront sensor adaptive optics (wao). Our waoSPIM is based on a direct wavefront measure using a Hartmann-Shack wavefront(More)
Multicellular tumor spheroids closely mimic the 3D organization of avascular microregions within tumors and thereby represent a valuable model for the evaluation of anticancer drugs. In this study, we performed a 3D analysis of the response to the CDC25 phosphatase inhibitor IRC-083864 in HCT116 spheroids. Continuous exposure to IRC-083864 strongly inhibits(More)
