Borreliae employ multiple immune evasive strategies such as binding to complement regulatory proteins [factor H (fH) and factor H like-1 (FHL1)], differential regulation of surface membrane proteins, antigenic variation, and binding of plasminogen/plasmin and matrix metalloproteinases. As a complement regulatory subunit, fH serves as a cofactor for the(More)
Botrytis cinerea is a phytopathogenic fungi causing disease in a number of important crops. It is considered a very complex species in which different populations seem to be adapted to different hosts. In order to characterize fungal virulence factors, a proteomic research was started. A protocol for protein extraction from mycelium tissue, with protein(More)
CONTEXT Decidualization of the human endometrium, which involves morphological and biochemical modifications of the endometrial stromal cells (ESCs), is a prerequisite for adequate trophoblast invasion and placenta formation. OBJECTIVE This study aims to investigate the proteome and secretome of in vitro decidualized ESCs. These data were combined with(More)
As a global approach to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in pea resistance to Erysiphe pisi, changes in the leaf proteome of two pea genotypes differing in their resistance phenotype were analyzed by a combination of 2-DE and MALDI-TOF/TOF MS. Leaf proteins from control non-inoculated and inoculated susceptible (Messire) and resistant(More)
The bacteriocinogenic strain of Enterococcus faecalis EJ97 has been isolated from municipal waste water. It produces a cationic bacteriocin (enterocin EJ97) of low molecular mass (5,340 Da) that is very stable under mild heat conditions and is sensitive to proteolytic enzymes. The amino acid sequence of the first 18 N-terminal residues of enterocin EJ97(More)
OBJECTIVE Adult mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are multipotent cells whose primary reservoir is bone marrow (BM). Following situations of extensive tissue damage, MSCs are mobilized and migrate to the site of injury. Osteoarthritis (OA) is a condition that involves extensive cartilage and bone damage. To gain insight into the pathogenesis of OA, we have(More)
BACKGROUND The transcriptome of the endometrium throughout the menstrual cycle has been described in recent years. However, the proteomic of the window of implantation remains unknown. The aim of this study was to compare the proteome of the human endometrium in the pre-receptive phase versus the receptive phase by identifying and quantifying the proteins(More)
Plum pox virus (PPV) is a member of the Potyvirus genus of plant viruses. Labeling with UDP-[3H]galactose and galactosyltransferase indicated that the capsid protein (CP) of PPV is a glycoprotein with N-acetylglucosamine terminal residues. Mass spectrometry analysis of different PPV isolates and mutants revealed O-linked N-acetylglucosamination, a(More)
Changes in the outer membrane subproteome of Escherichia coli along the transition to the viable but nonculturable state (VBNC) were studied. The VBNC state was triggered by exposure of E. coli cells to adverse conditions such as aquatic systems, starvation, suboptimal temperature, visible light irradiation and seawater. The subproteome, obtained according(More)
With the completion of the human genome sequence, biomedical sciences have entered in the "omics" era, mainly due to high-throughput genomics techniques and the recent application of mass spectrometry to proteomics analyses. However, there is still a time lag between these technological advances and their application in the clinical setting. Our work is(More)
