  1. Inactive C-terminal telomerase reverse transcriptase insertion splicing variants are dominant-negative inhibitors of telomerase.

    Biochimie 101:93 (2014) PMID 24412622

    We studied two less well characterized hTERT splice variants (termed INS3 and 4) that encode proteins with intact reverse transcriptase motifs, but alternative C-domains due to insertion of intronic sequences. We determined the prevalence of these mRNA variants in primary cells, telomerase-positive...
  2. Enzymatic enantioselective aldol reactions of isatin derivatives with cyclic ketones under solvent-free conditions.

    Biochimie 101:156 (2014) PMID 24440638

    Nuclease p1 from Penicillium citrinum was observed to directly catalyze the asymmetric aldol reactions between isatin derivatives and cyclic ketones with high isolated yields (up to 95%) and moderate to good stereoselectivity (dr up to >99/1, ee up to 82%). A series of reaction conditions were inves...
  3. The effect of small molecules on nuclear-encoded translation diseases.

    Biochimie 100:184 (2014) PMID 24012549

    We evaluated the effect of seven small molecules with reported therapeutic potential in fibroblasts of four patients with combined respiratory complex disorders, each harboring a known mutation in a different nuclear-encoded component of the mitochondrial translation machinery: EFTs, GFM1, MRPS22 an...
  4. Cholesterol biosynthesis and ER stress in peroxisome deficiency.

    Biochimie 98:75 (2014) PMID 24211592

    We demonstrated that peroxisome deficiency activates endoplasmic reticulum stress pathways in Pex2(-/-) mice, especially the integrated stress response mediated by PERK and ATF4 signaling, and thereby leads to dysregulation of the SREBP-2 pathway. Our findings suggest that functional peroxisomes are...
  5. Cathepsin D activity and selectivity in the acidic conditions of a tumor microenvironment: Utilization in the development of a novel Catheps...

    Biochimie 95(11):2010 (2013) PMID 23871913

    We investigated the effect of pH on the catalytic activity and selectivity of mature Cathepsin D (CD). It was found that the increase in the pH of the media led to a decrease in the reaction rate. However, the specificity of mature CD was not affected by a variation in pH. In the second step, the ef...
  6. Site directed mutagenesis of StSUT1 reveals target amino acids of regulation and stability.

    Biochimie 95(11):2132 (2013) PMID 23954800

    We provide further experimental evidence for a pH optimum at physiological extrema. Site directed mutagenesis provides information about functional amino acids, which are highly conserved and responsible for this extraordinary increase in transport capacity under extreme pH conditions. Redox-depende...
  7. The eubacterial protein synthesis inhibitor pulvomycin interacts with archaeal elongation factor 1α from Sulfolobus solfataricus.

    Biochimie 94(2):503 (2012) PMID 21924318

    The effect of pulvomycin on the biochemical and fluorescence spectroscopic properties of the archaeal elongation factor 1α from Sulfolobus solfataricus (SsEF-1α), the functional analog of eubacterial EF-Tu, was investigated. The antibiotic was able to reduce in vitro the rate of protein synthesis...
  8. Mode of action of the antiprion drugs 6AP and GA on ribosome assisted protein folding.

    Biochimie 93(6):1047 (2011) PMID 21396977

    We have characterized with biochemical experiments, the mode of inhibition of these two drugs using ribosomes or ribosomal components active in protein folding (referred to as 'ribosomal folding modulators' or RFMs) from both bacteria Escherichia coli and yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and human ca...
  9. A chymotrypsin-like proteinase from the midgut of Tenebrio molitor larvae.

    Biochimie 87(8):771 (2005) PMID 15885871

    A chymotrypsin-like proteinase was isolated from the posterior midgut of larvae of the yellow mealworm, Tenebrio molitor, by ion-exchange and gel filtration chromatography. The enzyme, TmC1, was purified to homogeneity as determined by SDS-PAGE and postelectrophoretic activity detection. TmC1 had a...
  10. Expression of eukaryotic glycosyltransferases in the yeast Pichia pastoris.

    Biochimie 85(3-4):413 (2003) PMID 12770780

    We have examined the expression in P. pastoris of Arabidopsis thaliana and Drosophila melanogaster core alpha1,3-fucosyltransferases (EC, A. thaliana beta1,2-xylosyltransferase (EC, bovine beta1,4-galactosyltransferase I (EC, D. melanogaster peptide O-xylosyltransferas...
