Protein kinase G of Mycobacterium tuberculosis has been implicated in virulence and in regulation of glutamate metabolism. Here we show that this kinase undergoes a pattern of autophosphorylation that is distinct from that of other M. tuberculosis protein kinases characterized to date and we identify GarA as a substrate for phosphorylation by PknG.(More)
In Arabidopsis thaliana, the PHOSPHATE TRANSPORTER1 (PHT1) family encodes the high-affinity phosphate transporters. They are transcriptionally induced by phosphate starvation and require PHOSPHATE TRANSPORTER TRAFFIC FACILITATOR (PHF1) to exit the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), indicating intracellular traffic as an additional level of regulation of PHT1(More)
Thiol precursor content in Melon B. and Sauvignon blanc grape juices obtained under vacuum was determined by quantifying cysteinylated and glutathionylated conjugates of 3-mercaptohexan-1-ol (3MH) and 4-methyl-4-mercaptopentan-2-one (4MMP). This characterization allowed the study of thiol precursor evolution during ripening of Sauvignon blanc grapes in(More)
In plants, aquaporins play a crucial role in regulating root water transport in response to environmental and physiological cues. Controls achieved at the post-translational level are thought to be of critical importance for regulating aquaporin function. To investigate the general molecular mechanisms involved, we performed, using the model species(More)
Proteomics studies typically aim to exhaustively detect peptides/proteins in a given biological sample. Over the past decade, the number of publications using proteomics methodologies has exploded. This was made possible due to the availability of high-quality genomic data and many technological advances in the fields of microfluidics and mass spectrometry.(More)
An excess of NaCl in the soil is detrimental for plant growth. It interferes with mineral nutrition and water uptake and leads to accumulation of toxic ions in the plant. Understanding the response of roots to NaCl stress may facilitate the development of crops with increased tolerance to this and other stresses. Since controls achieved at the(More)
Tau protein plays a major role in neurodegenerative disorders, appears to be a central biomarker of neuronal injury in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), and is a promising target for Alzheimer's disease immunotherapies. To quantify tau at high sensitivity and gain insights into its naturally occurring structural variations in human CSF, we coupled absolute(More)
Tau protein concentration in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is currently used as a sensitive and specific biomarker for Alzheimer's disease. Its detection currently relies on ELISA but the perspective of using mass spectrometry (MS) to detect its different proteoforms represents an interesting alternative. This is however an analytical challenge because of its(More)
Microtubule-associated Tau proteins are major actors in neurological disorders, the so-called tauopathies. In some of them, and specifically in Alzheimer's disease (AD), hyperphosphorylated forms of Tau aggregate into neurofibrillary tangles. Following and understanding the complexity of Tau's molecular profile with its multiple isoforms and(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia in humans, and a major public health concern with 35 million of patients worldwide. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) biomarkers being early diagnostic indicators of AD, it is essential to use the most efficient analytical methods to detect and quantify them accurately. These biomarkers, and more(More)
