The proteomes expressed at 4°C and 18°C by the psychrophilic Antarctic bacterium Pseudoalteromonas haloplanktis were compared using two-dimensional differential in-gel electrophoresis with special reference to proteins repressed by low temperatures. Remarkably, the major cold-repressed proteins, almost undetectable at 4°C, were heat shock proteins involved(More)
The complete understanding of the morphological differentiation of streptomycetes is an ambitious challenge as diverse sensors and pathways sensitive to various environmental stimuli control the process. Germination occupies a particular position in the life cycle as the good achievement of the process depends on events occurring both during the preceding(More)
The molecular mechanisms responsible for the failure of antiangiogenic therapies and how tumors adapt to these therapies are unclear. Here, we applied transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic approaches to preclinical models and provide evidence for tumor adaptation to vascular endothelial growth factor blockade through a metabolic shift toward(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to identify new biomarkers of osteoarthritis (OA) by proteomics analysis and to develop specific immunoassays to detect and quantify them. METHODS Proteomics analysis was performed in urine samples from 10 women (mean±SD age 76.0±5.0 years) undergoing knee replacement surgery due to severe OA and 5 healthy women(More)
BACKGROUND Mercury is known to bioaccumulate and to magnify in marine mammals, which is a cause of great concern in terms of their general health. In particular, the immune system is known to be susceptible to long-term mercury exposure. The aims of the present study were (1) to determine the mercury level in the blood of free-ranging harbour seals from the(More)
High-grade gliomas (glioblastomas) are the most common and deadly brain tumors in adults, currently with no satisfactory treatment available. Apart from de novo glioblastoma, it is currently accepted that these malignancies mainly progress from lower grade glial tumors. However, the molecular entities governing the progression of gliomas are poorly(More)
The proteomes expressed at 4 degrees C and 18 degrees C by the psychrophilic Antarctic bacterium Pseudoalteromonas haloplanktis have been compared using two-dimensional differential in-gel electrophoresis, showing that translation, protein folding, membrane integrity and anti-oxidant activities are upregulated at 4 degrees C. This proteomic analysis(More)
The role of insect saliva in the first contact between an insect and a plant is crucial during feeding. Some elicitors, particularly in insect regurgitants, have been identified as inducing plant defence reactions. Here, we focused on the salivary proteome of the green peach aphid, Myzus persicae. Proteins were either directly in-solution digested or were(More)
The cell lines chosen have demonstrated a positive response in terms of cell proliferation and associated modifications in proteins content, evaluated through DNA and proteins synthesis, at environmentally relevant dose of dioxins, brought by a typical environmental PCDD/F mixture. The response is time and species dependent. After completion of the(More)
Thiamine and its three phosphorylated derivatives (mono-, di- and triphosphate) occur naturally in most cells. Recently, we reported the presence of a fourth thiamine derivative, adenosine thiamine triphosphate, produced in Escherichia coli in response to carbon starvation. Here, we show that the chemical synthesis of adenosine thiamine triphosphate leads(More)
