Understanding the complete picture of floral transition is still impaired by the fact that physiological studies mainly concern plant species whose genetics is poorly known, and vice versa. Arabidopsis thaliana has been successfully used to unravel signalling pathways by genetic and molecular approaches, but analyses are still required to determine the(More)
The present work was aimed at studying the interaction of autoantibodies (aAb) and monoclonal antibodies (mAb) with the N-terminal thyroid hormone forming site of human thyroglobulin (TG). Obtained by CNBr treatment of TG, the peptide (22 kDa) containing the complete major hormonogenic site of human TG was purified in three forms according to the degree of(More)
The 22 kDa fragment (Asn1-Met171) purified from iodine-poor human thyroglobulin (hTg) is capable by itself to synthesize thyroxine at Tyr5, the preferential hormonogenic acceptor site of the protein, after iodination in vitro. To identify the corresponding donor site in this model we studied the fate of the six Tyr residues present in the 22 kDa peptide(More)
We hypothesized that the changes in blood oxidant/antioxidant status during incremental maximal cycling exercise could affect the motor drive to leg muscles. Indeed, the oxygen free radicals activate the metabosensitive muscle afferents which are suspected to elicit an adaptive motor response delaying fatigue. Fifteen healthy subjects performed an(More)
In Mediterranean subtidal rocky reefs, Cystoseira spp. (Phaeophyceae) form dense canopies up to 1 m high. Such habitats, called 'Cystoseira forests', are regressing across the entire Mediterranean Sea due to multiple anthropogenic stressors, as are other large brown algae forests worldwide. Cystoseira forests are being replaced by structurally less complex(More)
Corsica Island is a sub-basin of the Northwestern Mediterranean Sea, with hydrological features typical of both oligotrophic systems and eutrophic coastal zones. Phytoplankton assemblages in two coastal ecosystems of Corsica (the deep Bay of Calvi and the shallow littoral of Bastia) show contrasting patterns over a one-year cycle. In order to determine what(More)
Corsica is an island in the Western Mediterranean belonging to France, located southeast of the French mainland and west of Italy. The island covers an area of about 8,700 km 2 , is flanked by deep water along its west coast, and by a broad shelf along its east coast. Corsica has fisheries in its coastal lagoons, but its most commercially important fishery(More)
The evolution of kinetic parameters (Vmax, maximal velocity, and Km, Michaelis constant) of red blood cell (RBC) triiodothyronine (L-T3) initial uptake was followed in 19 inpatients suffering from unipolar depression after 1 week (D7) and 4 weeks (D28) of a chronic administration of fluvoxamine, in relation with the clinical efficacy of the drug. In a(More)
