Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) particles, produced in the yeast Hansenula polymorpha, are 20 nm particles, composed of S surface viral proteins and host-derived lipids. Since the detailed structure of these particles is still missing, we further characterized them by fluorescence techniques. Fluorescence correlation spectroscopy indicated that the(More)
Current Hepatitis B vaccines are based on recombinant Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) virus-like particles adsorbed on aluminium (Al) gel. These particles exhibit a lipoprotein-like structure with about 70 protein S molecules in association with various types of lipids. To determine whether the adsorption on Al gel affects HBsAg structure, we(More)
The aim of this work was to further understand the relationship between the immunogenicity and the structure of Hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) particles used in Hepatitis B vaccines. To reach this aim, we compared by using a large range of techniques, the structure and properties of untreated particles with those of particles stored for 3 weeks at(More)
Addition of Vpr C-terminus to various cell types provokes cell apoptosis. This property was recently shown useful to develop inhibitors of cell proliferation. In that context, we investigated the cellular uptake of rhodamine- and fluorescein-labeled Vpr(52-96) peptides to understand the mechanism of Vpr C-terminus entry into cells. Dynamic light scattering(More)
UHRF1 plays a central role in the maintenance and transmission of epigenetic modifications by recruiting DNMT1 to hemimethylated CpG sites via its SET and RING-associated (SRA) domain, ensuring error-free duplication of methylation profiles. To characterize SRA-induced changes in the conformation and dynamics of a target 12 bp DNA duplex as a function of(More)
