The glycan moiety of human recombinant gonadotrophins (r-hFSH, r-hLH, and r-hCG) produced in CHO cell lines has been characterized by a combination of chromatographic and mass spectrometric techniques, including both matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization and electrospray. Two glycan mapping methods have been developed for the three gonadotrophins that(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the cytotoxicity of iron nanoparticles on cardiac cells and to determine whether they can modulate the biological activity of 7-ketocholesterol (7KC) involved in the development of cardiovascular diseases. Nanoparticles of iron labeled with Texas Red are introduced in cultures of nonbeating mouse cardiac cells (HL1-NB) with or without(More)
The arrangement and movement of mitochondria were quantitatively studied in adult rat cardiomyocytes and in cultured continuously dividing non beating (NB) HL-1 cells with differentiated cardiac phenotype. Mitochondria were stained with MitoTracker Green and studied by fluorescent confocal microscopy. High speed scanning (one image every 400 ms) revealed(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanism of cellular regulation of mitochondrial respiration in permeabilized cardiac cells with clearly different structural organization: (i) in isolated rat cardiomyocytes with very regular mitochondrial arrangement, (ii) in HL-1 cells from mouse heart, and (iii) in non-beating (NB HL-1 cells) without(More)
Expression and function of creatine kinase (CK), adenylate kinase (AK) and hexokinase (HK) isoforms in relation to their roles in regulation of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) and intracellular energy transfer were assessed in beating (B) and non-beating (NB) cardiac HL-l cell lines and adult rat cardiomyocytes or myocardium. In both types of HL-1 cells,(More)
Comparative analysis of the bioenergetic parameters of adult rat cardiomyocytes (CM) and HL-1 cells with very different structure but similar cardiac phenotype was carried out with the aim of revealing the importance of the cell structure for regulation of its energy fluxes. Confocal microscopic analysis showed very different mitochondrial arrangement in(More)
HL-1, the first cell line with a cardiac phenotype for biological experiments, displays spontaneous electrophysiological and mechanical regular activity, and cyclic calcium movements. We isolated a derived line, devoid of transient movements, for confocal microscopy experiments. These cells do express cardiac proteins: connexin 43, the cardiac isoform of(More)
8-oxoguanine DNA glycosylase and Kin17 are proteins widely distributed and phylogenetically conserved in the CNS. 8-oxoguanine DNA glycosylase is a DNA repair enzyme that excises 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine present in DNA damaged by oxidative stress. Kin17 protein is involved in DNA repair and illegitimate recombination in eukaryotic cells. The present study(More)
The present study discusses the role of structural organization of cardiac cells in determining the mechanisms of regulation of oxidative phosphorylation and interaction between mitochondria and ATPases. In permeabilized adult cardiomyocytes, the apparent K(m) (Michaelis-Menten constant) for ADP in the regulation of respiration is far higher than in(More)
We studied in confocal microscopy non-beating cells from the HL-1 cardiac cell line. Using a fluorescent dye, mitochondria appeared as a dense tubular network, in permanent fusion, fission and displacement. To quantify these movements in response to pharmacological stimuli, we needed a method only based on their position. Time-lapse recording was performed(More)
