The objective of this study is to assess by echography and Doppler the Cerebral (Vmca), Aortic (Vao) and Femoral (Vfem) arterial flow velocity and calf vein (Tibial, Gastrocnemius) section (Tib, Gast) during orthostatic intolerance (OI) test after a 60-day, head down tilt bed rest (HDBR). Twenty-four women (25–40 years) underwent a 60-day HDBR at −6°: eight(More)
Mss4 (mammalian suppressor of Sec4) is an evolutionarily highly conserved protein and shows high sequence and structural similarity to nucleotide exchange factors. Although Mss4 tightly binds a series of exocytic Rab GTPases, it exercises only a low catalytic activity. Therefore Mss4 was proposed to work rather as a chaperone, protecting nucleotide free(More)
BACKGROUND Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected individuals are at increased risk of herpes zoster (HZ), even in the antiretroviral therapy (ART) era. Because concerns exist about the use of live-attenuated vaccines in immunocompromised individuals, a subunit vaccine may be an appropriate alternative. METHODS This phase 1/2, randomized,(More)
Besides transketolase (TKT), a thiamin-dependent enzyme of the pentose phosphate pathway, the human genome encodes for two closely related transketolase-like proteins, which share a high sequence identity with TKT. Transketolase-like protein 1 (TKTL1) has been implicated in cancerogenesis as its cellular expression levels were reported to directly correlate(More)
Intracellular Na+ activities and local current densities were measured in fused Madin-Darby canine kidney cells using Na+ and voltage-sensing microelectrodes. Na+ that enters the cell across the apical plasma membrane accumulates initially in the nucleoplasm, several seconds ahead of its appearance in the cell cytoplasm. The spatial distribution of Na+(More)
The implant-bone interface is the scene of competition between microorganisms and distinct types of tissue cells. In the past, various strategies have been followed to support bony integration and to prevent bacterial implant-associated infections. In the present study we investigated the biological properties of diamond-like carbon (DLC) surfaces(More)

During development and progression of malignant melanoma, an important role has been attributed to alterations of cell-cell adhesions, in particular, to a "cadherin switch" from E- to N-cadherin. We have previously shown that a subtype of melanoma cells express the desmosomal cadherin desmoglein 2 as non-junction-bound cell surface protein in addition to(More)
