Taking advantage from the development of SV30, a new analogue of the pro-apoptotic molecule HA14-1, the aim of this study was to functionally evaluate SV30 and to develop safe nanocarriers for its administration. By using an inversion phase process, 57nm organic solvent-free lipid nanocapsules loaded with SV30 (SV30-LNCs) were formulated. Biological(More)
Microcomputed tomography (microCT) is well adapted to quantitative analysis of calcified tissues but soft tissues (such as cartilage) are radiolucent and need a contrast enhancement procedure for microCT. We developed a "staining" method allowing microCT imaging of articular cartilage using uranyl acetate (UA). The method was used to see whether adult rats(More)
Development of effective antibacterial agents for the treatment of infections caused by Gram-positive bacteria resistant to existing antibiotics, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), is an area of intensive research. In this work, the antibacterial efficacy of two antimicrobial peptides derived from plectasin, AP114 and AP138, used(More)
Mitochondrial dynamics and distribution are critical for supplying ATP in response to energy demand. CLUH is a protein involved in mitochondrial distribution whose dysfunction leads to mitochondrial clustering, the metabolic consequences of which remain unknown. To gain insight into the role of CLUH on mitochondrial energy production and cellular(More)
