The refined structure of a wheat type 2 nonspecific lipid transfer protein (ns-LTP2) liganded with l-alpha-palmitoylphosphatidylglycerol has been determined by NMR. The (15)N-labeled protein was produced in Pichia pastoris. Physicochemical conditions and ligandation were intensively screened to obtain the best NMR spectra quality. This ns-LTP2 is a(More)
In plants, a family of ubiquitous proteins named non-specific lipid-transfer proteins (ns-LTPs) facilitates the transfer of fatty acids, phospholipids and steroids between membranes. Recent data suggest that these secreted proteins play a key role in the formation of cuticular wax layers and in defence mechanisms against pathogens. In this study, X-ray(More)
Durum wheat (Triticum durum, Desf.) endosperm of mature kernels contained a single form of glutathione reductase (GR); it appeared about the 18th day after anthesis while another isoform, present at the early stages of grain development, disappeared between the 20th and 30th days after flowering. The form that was present at grain maturity was isolated and(More)
Cassiicolin is a host-selective toxin (HST) produced by the fungus Corynespora cassiicola (strain CCP). It is responsible for the Corynespora leaf fall (CLF) disease, which is among the main pathologies affecting rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis). Working on purified cassiicolin and using electron microscopy, we have demonstrated that this 27-residue(More)
Binding of beta2GPI (beta2 glycoprotein I), a human plasma protein, to AnPLs (anionic phospholipids) plays a key role in the formation of antiphospholipid antibodies involved in autoimmune diseases like antiphospholipid syndrome or systemic lupus erythematosus. We recently showed that binding of beta2GPI to AnPLs was enhanced by biotinylation of its glycan(More)
The thioredoxin h system has the specific capability to reduce intramolecular disulfide bonds of proteins, thereby modifying their tertiary structure. It is involved in many processes: in the activation or deactivation of enzymes and enzyme inhibitors and in the germination process. This system can be used to improve the breadmaking quality of wheat by(More)
The reactivity of human thioredoxin (HTR) was tested in several reactions. HTR was as efficient as E. coli or plant and algal thioredoxins when assayed with E. coli ribonucleotide reductase or for the reduction of insulin. On the other hand, HTR was poorly reduced by NADPH and the E. coli flavoenzyme NADPH thioredoxin reductase as monitored in the DTNB(More)
SUMMARY Protein interaction networks have become an essential tool in large-scale data analysis, integration, and the visualization of high-throughput data in the context of complex cellular networks. Many individual databases are available that provide information on binary interactions of proteins and small molecules. Community efforts such as PSICQUIC(More)
Rising healthcare for elder and disabled people can be controlled by offering people autonomy at home by means of information technology. In this paper, we present an original and sensorless alert management solution which performs multimedia and home automation service discrimination and extracts highly regular home activities as sensors for alert(More)
Corynespora Leaf Fall (CLF) is a major disease of rubber tree (Hevea brasiliensis) caused by the Ascomycota Corynespora cassiicola. Here we describe the cloning and characterization of a gene encoding cassiicolin (Cas), a glycosylated cystein-rich small secreted protein (SSP) identified as a potential CLF disease effector in rubber tree. Three isolates with(More)
