Aimez vous les lipides de plantes? Camille Delude , Jérôme Joubès, and Frédéric Domergue of the LBM contribute to a chapter entitled « Plant Surface Lipids and Epidermis Development » in the book « Lipids in Plant and Algae Development » Yuki Nakamura • Yonghua Li-Beisson Editors.
The LBM welcomes Sylvain Kenan on MetaboHub contract for 6 months to develop sphingolipidomic analysis. Good luck in your job !
Yohann and Patrick have organized the 19th ENPER (European Network for Plant Endomembrane Research) meeting in Bordeaux from August 30 to September 02 – 2016. ENPER is the first and oldest international conference on plant membranes research (created in 1996 by Pr. David Robinson). This year, about 120 scientists gathered essentially from Europe but also
Laetitia and Patrick participated to the annual meeting of the SEB (Society of Experimental Biology) in Brighton, UK on 4 to 7 of July. Patrick gave a talk entitled « Lipid physical properties, membrane dynamics and transport, and lysophospholipid acyltransferases at the ER-Golgi interface in plant cells ». Laetitia and Patrick organised a workshop on Plant ER
Jerome, Yijun, Vincent and Fred came back from Goettigen in Germany where they attended the 22th International Symposium on Plant Lipids organized by Ivo Feussner. Jerome gave a talk on the function of CER1 proteins in the biosynthesis of cuticular alkanes in Arabidopsis.
Laetitia contributed to a publication in PNAS on the Fragile X Syndrome pathology. This work supports a model where FMRP (Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein), by controlling the translation of the DiacylGlycerol Kinase kappa (DGKκ), indirectly controls synaptic protein translation and membrane properties by impacting lipid signaling in dendritic spine.
Camille, Laetitia, Stéphanie, Jérôme and Fred, in collaboration with Owen Rowland (Carleton University, Canada) and Dylan Kosma (University of Reno, USA), published a paper showing that most of the fatty alcohols not covalently linked to the suberin polymer are in the form of alkyl hydroxycinnamates (AHCs), with alkyl caffeates predominating. Such compounds are not restricted
The ANR projet blanc PANACEA » PlANt plAsma membrane lipid signalisation in biotiC interactions » coordinated by Sébastien in collaboration with three laboratories in Dijon (UMR PME Plante-Microbe-Environnment), Paris (UMR PCMP Physiologie Cellulaire et Moléculaire des Plantes) and Bordeaux (CBMN, UMR Laboratoire de Chimie Biologie des Membranes et NanoObjets) ends with a publication in Plant
The LBM invited Eric Hosy (Institut Interdisciplinaire de Neurosciences, CNRS/Université de Bordeaux) through the invitation program of the FR BIE for a very interesting seminar entitled « How single particle based super-resolution techniques succeed to improve our vision of molecular dynamic organization of the cell ». Thank you for the nice discussion on super-resolution microscopy.
Juliette Jouhet from the Laboratoire de Physiologie Cellulaire et Végétale in Grenoble gave a seminar invited by Florence Corellou LBM and the FR BIE on « AtMic60 is involved in plant mitochondria lipid trafficking and is part of a large complex ». Than you for the discussions on membrane contact sites.
