Human brain tissue shares alpha 2-8 linked polymers of neuraminic acid with the carbohydrates expressed on the capsule of group B Neisseria meningitidis bacteria (Finne et al. (1983) Lancet ii, 355-357; Finne (1985) Trends Biochem. Sci. 10, 129-132; Rougon et al. (1986) J. Cell. Biol. 103, 2429-2437). We report that sera from patients suffering from group B(More)
E14 rat cortical neurons which have almost no glial progenitors were cocultured with a homogeneous population of mature type 1 astrocytes at a 4/1 ratio in serum free medium. Maturation of neurons was evaluated using a set of well characterized antibodies and two new monoclonal antibodies (MN2E4 and MN3H6) raised against various neurofilament subunits and(More)
Using a monoclonal antibody that recognizes specifically a high polysialylated form of N-CAM (high PSA N-CAM), the temporal and spatial expression of this molecule was studied in developing spinal cord and neural crest derivatives of mouse truncal region. Temporal expression was analyzed on immunoblots of spinal cord and dorsal root ganglia (DRGs) extracts(More)
Antibodies directed against neural cell adhesive molecules (NCAM) and in particular a monoclonal antibody recognizing polysialylated isoforms, were used to characterize the expression of these molecules in normal and diseased human muscles. Normal subjects as well as patients with inflammatory, dystrophic and denervating diseases were examined. By(More)
The impact of selected cellulose solvent systems based on the principal constituents tetrabutyl-ammonium fluoride (TBAF), 1-ethyl-3-methyl-1H-imidazolium-acetate, N-methylmorpholine-N-oxide, or calcium thiocyanate octahydrate (CTO) on the properties of cellulose II aerogels prepared from these solvent systems has been investigated as a means towards(More)
Biocompatible cellulose-based aerogels composed of nanoporous struts, which embed interconnected voids of controlled micron-size, have been prepared employing temporary templates of fused porogens, reinforcement by interpenetrating PMMA networks and supercritical carbon dioxide drying. Different combinations of cellulose solvent (Ca(SCN) 2 /H 2 O/LiCl or(More)
Thanks to their high biocompatibility and bioactivity, bioactive glasses are very promising materials for soft and hard tissue repair and engineering. Because bioactivity and specific surface area intrinsically linked, the last decade has seen a focus on the development of highly porous and/or nano-sized materials. This review emphasizes the synthesis of(More)
Background: To avoid morbidity and limited availability associated with autografts, synthetic calcium phosphate (CaP) ceramics were extensively developed and used as bone filling materials. Controlling their induced-inflammatory response nevertheless remained a major concern. Strontium-containing CaP ceramics were recently demonstrated for impacting(More)
Doped calcium phosphate bioceramics are promising materials for bone repair surgery because of their chemical resemblance to the mineral constituent of bone. Among these materials, BCP samples composed of hydroxyapatite (Ca 10 (PO 4) 6 (OH) 2) and β-TCP (Ca 3 (PO 4) 2) present a mineral analogy with the nano-multi-substituted hydroxyapatite bio-mineral part(More)
