A Li2D team has released the peptidomic profile of the virus that causes monkeypox, which they established using tandem mass spectrometry. These data should help to better understand the evolution of the epidemic and allow the creation of targeted tests to potentially detect the threat more quickly and prevent a new epidemic.
A consortium of researchers, including SPI/DMTS metabolomics specialists, presents PeakForest, a database of NMR and mass spectra, which provides storage and annotation services for spectra of reference compounds and metabolic profiles of biological matrices. An open resource to address the evolving needs of the discipline.
A team from SIMoS (DMTS) identifies and characterizes a toxin isolated from black mamba venom, whose specific anticholinergic properties at the type 2 acetylcholine receptor, a regulator of arterial tone, position it as a potential drug candidate for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
A collaboration led by a METRIC team (BAOBAB/NeuroSpin) has undertaken to measure the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) in MRI at the centre of a spherical phantom at different magnetic field strengths (B0). Their data confirm the theories that SNR increases with approximately the square of B0.
NeuroSpin researchers, in collaboration with Iramis and the Università Statale di Milano, have developed a CEST magnetic resonance spectroscopy sequence that allows them to detect and confirm the presence of three dipeptides in the brain and skeletal muscle of adult rats and thus to consider future studies of their physiological role.
An I2BC team has analyzed, at the genome scale of the yeast S.cerevisiae, the functional interactions between the Mediator of gene transcription and DNA repair proteins, reinforcing the idea that these two fundamental cellular processes are closely linked.
Researchers from SIMoS and SPI (DMTS) demonstrate that molecular engineering of llama antibodies, capable of neutralizing SARS-CoV-1, allows to obtain optimized antibodies with very high affinities for SARS-CoV-2 and its variants, the culprits of the Covid-19 epidemic.
The participative study on our time perception during the confinement, led by Virginie van Wassenhove (NeuroSpin), provides the first open database, Blursday, which analyzes the nature of the alterations in our relationship to time during physical and social distancing, as we experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic.
By measuring fMRI responses to written words, faces, houses and checkerboards in three groups of children, pre-readers and beginning readers aged 6 and advanced readers aged 9, a team from UNICOG (NeuroSpin) shows that reading acquisition recycles and specializes a pre-existing but plastic visual circuit connected to language areas.
A team from SIMoS, in collaboration with the SCBM (DMTS), has developed an original bioanalytical approach based on the double 14C-3H isotopic labeling of an antibody-drug conjugate, allowing the simultaneous in vivo monitoring of the two components in mouse models as well as their precise quantification in the organs.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
