Alterations of mitochondrial function may play a central role in neuronal death in Huntington's disease (HD). However, the molecular mechanisms underlying such functional deficits of mitochondria are not elucidated yet. We herein showed that the expression of two important constituents of mitochondrial complex II, the 30-kDa iron-sulfur (Ip) subunit and the(More)
Human pluripotent stem cells offer a limitless source of cells for regenerative medicine. Neural derivatives of human embryonic stem cells (hESCs) are currently being used for cell therapy in 3 clinical trials. However, hESCs are prone to genomic instability, which could limit their clinical utility. Here, we report that neural differentiation of hESCs(More)
PURPOSE To investigate a role of common polymorphisms of the CYP1B1 gene in French patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG). METHODS Six common CYP1B1 variants, 5 coding and one in promoter, were compared in 224 unrelated French Caucasian POAG patients, excluding those with a CYP1B1 mutation, and in 47 population-matched controls with a normal(More)
