Lignin is incorporated into plant cell walls to maintain plant architecture and to ensure long-distance water transport. Lignin composition affects the industrial value of plant material for forage, wood and paper production, and biofuel technologies. Industrial demands have resulted in an increase in the use of genetic engineering to modify lignified plant(More)
For the last ten years, antiretroviral therapy (ARV) has improved the prognosis in HIV-1 infection and showed a better control of the viral excretion by reducing viral shedding in semen. However, nucleoside analogues reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI) therapy reported important adverse effects. Most of these side effects observed seem to be linked with(More)
The von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) tumour suppressor gene is commonly mutated in renal cell carcinoma of clear cell type (CCRCC). We investigated the possible relationship between VHL mutations in sporadic CCRCC and polymorphism of genes encoding enzymes involved in carcinogen metabolism: two cytochrome P450 monooxygenases (CYP1A1 and CYP2D6), one NAD[P]H:quinone(More)
