The human myelin proteolipid protein 1 gene (hPLP1), which encodes the major structural myelin proteins of the central nervous system (CNS), is classically described as expressed in the oligodendrocytes, the CNS myelinating cells. We identified two new exons in the intron 1 of the hPLP1 gene that lead to the expression of additional mRNA and protein(More)
AIMS To develop real-time PCR assays for tracking and tracing clostridia responsible for human botulism. METHODS AND RESULTS Real-time PCR assays based on the detection of the genes ntnh encoding the nontoxin-nonhaemagglutinin (NTNH) proteins or the most homologous regions of the botulinum neurotoxin (bont) genes have been developed together with four(More)
Genome-scale prediction of subcellular localization (SCL) is not only useful for inferring protein function but also for supporting proteomic data. In line with the secretome concept, a rational and original analytical strategy mimicking the secretion steps that determine ultimate SCL was developed for Gram-positive (monoderm) bacteria. Based on the biology(More)
Staphylococcus xylosus is commonly used as starter culture for meat fermentation. Its technological properties are mainly characterized in vitro, but the molecular mechanisms for its adaptation to meat remain unknown. A global transcriptomic approach was used to determine these mechanisms. S. xylosus modulated the expression of about 40-50% of the total(More)
