In earlier research, we identified a 43-kDa c-ErbAalpha1 protein (p43) in the mitochondrial matrix of rat liver. In the present work, binding experiments indicate that p43 displays an affinity for triiodothyronine (T3) similar to that of the T3 nuclear receptor. Using in organello import experiments, we found that p43 is targeted to the organelle by an(More)
Mitochondrial dysfunctions are frequently reported in cancer cells, but their direct involvement in tumorigenesis remains unclear. To understand this relation, we stimulated mitochondrial activity by overexpression of the mitochondrial triiodothyronine receptor (p43) in human dermal fibroblasts. In all clones, this stimulation induced morphologic changes(More)
In previous studies, we characterized a new hormonal pathway involving a mitochondrial T3 receptor (p43) acting as a mitochondrial transcription factor. In in vitro and in vivo studies, we have shown that p43 increases mitochondrial transcription and mitochondrial biogenesis. In addition, p43 overexpression in skeletal muscle stimulates mitochondrial(More)
In previous studies, we have characterized a new hormonal pathway involving a mitochondrial T3 receptor (p43) acting as a mitochondrial transcription factor and consequently stimulating mitochondrial activity and mitochondrial biogenesis. We have established the involvement of this T3 pathway in the regulation of in vitro myoblast differentiation. We have(More)
For some years, research in the field of growth endocrinology has been mainly focused on growth hormone (GH). However, it appears that GH does not always control growth rate. For instance, it does not clearly influence intra-uterine growth: moreover, although the results of GRF or GH administration appear convincing in rats, pigs or heifers, this is not the(More)
The effects of various amounts of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) injected subcutaneously or intravenously (alone or in combination with growth hormone-releasing factor: GRF 1-44) on growth hormone (GH), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) were studied in the plasma of 2-week, 2-month and 3-month old lambs. After(More)
To explore the possibility to boost phenolic antioxidants through their structural modification by lipophilization and check the influence of such covalent modification on cellular uptake and mitochondria targeting. Rosmarinic acid was lipophilized by various aliphatic chain lengths (butyl, octyl, decyl, dodecyl, hexadecyl, and octadecyl) to give(More)
The influence of food restriction, applied from birth to 36 h post partum, on neonatal thyroid function was studied in newborn Limousin x Romanov lambs. The control animals (n = 18) had free access to the mother and suckled ad libitum. Restricted lambs (n = 16) were removed from the mother and received limited amounts of colostrum in proportion to birth(More)
BACKGROUND Nuclear receptors (NR) regulate transcription of genes involved in many biological processes such as development, cell proliferation, differentiation and cell death. Amongst them, PPARG2 and THR control tissue glucose and lipid homeostasis which are deregulated in severe pathophysiological conditions such as metabolic syndromes. (More)
Chicoric acid (CA) is a caffeoyl derivative previously described as having potential anti-diabetic properties. As similarities in cellular mechanism similarities between diabetes and aging have been shown, we explored on L6 myotubes the effect of CA on the modulation of intracellular pathways involved in diabetes and aging. We also determined its influence(More)
