The number of biobanks for diagnostic/clinical/biodiversity preservation purposes is increasing exponentially, representing an economic burden for the EU. Cryopreservation (Liquid Nitrogen LN) is the only cells/gametes long-term repository method. LN storage is expensive though, requires dedicated facilities, is hazardous, carries pathogens and has high carbon footprint. DRYNET objective is to set ...

Molecular strategies to treat inherited arrhythmias (EU-rhythmy)

Date du début: 1 nov. 2015, Date de fin: 31 oct. 2020,

Sudden cardiac death (SCD) is a leading cause of death in western countries: coronary artery disease is the major cause of SCD in older subjects while inherited arrhythmogenic diseases are the leading cause of SCD in younger individuals. After 25 years dedicated to research of the molecular bases of heritable arrhythmias, the PI of this proposal now intends to pioneer gene therapy for prevention o ...

Mitochondria are the major source of ATP, synthesized by the mitochondrial respiratory chain (MRC) through the process of oxidative phosphorylation. ATP deficiency leads to cellular dysfunction and ultimately death. In mammals, 13 mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA)-encoded subunits interact with over 70 nuclear-encoded subunits to form four of the five MRC complexes. Many additional factors are essential f ...

... ter transplantation of subcutaneous alginate macroencapsulated porcine islets xenograft without the use of any immunosuppression. In order to improve the function of pig islets, we have produced with AVANTEA a transgenic pig expressing GLP-1 at the level of the pig islets. In fact, GLP1 is not only able to (i) increase the insulin gene expression and insulin biosynthesis, but also to (ii) induce t ...

TRANSLINK is a project devoted to assessing the mid-to long-term risk factors and improve the outcome of animal (bovine/porcine)-derived Bioprosthetic Heart Valve (BHV) implants. 300,000 patients/year benefit from BHV, a major healthcare problem (second most frequent cardiac surgery). BHV clinical outcome suffers from late dysfunctions restricting their application to older recipients. Based on a ...

Date du début: 1 mai 2013, Date de fin: 30 avr. 2017,

Scientific evidence clearly indicates that ageing and health in adult life is programmed by genetic and epigenetic mechanisms early in life.Developmental plasticity in response to the environment, including nutrient availability, of mammalian embryos indicates the capacity fornewly emerging embryonic and extraembryonic cell lineages to initiate compensatory responses which may attune nutrient deli ...

"Good fertility is essential for the sustainability of livestock production. Of all livestock sectors, fertility of dairy cattle is raising the greatest cause for concern. Cow fertility has declined, particularly in Holstein cattle, from 80% pregnancy to first service 20 years ago to less than 40% today. Poor fertility is one of the main reasons for early culling, such that modern dairy cows compl ...

Stem Cells for Relevant Efficient Extended and Normalized Toxicology (SCR&TOX)

Date du début: 1 janv. 2011, Date de fin: 31 déc. 2015,

In the development of products for use by humans it is vital to identify compounds with toxic properties at an early stage of their development, to avoid spending time and resource on unsuitable and potentially unsafe candidate products. Human pluripotent stem cell lines offer a unique opportunity to develop a wide variety of human cell-based test systems because they may be expanded indefinitely ...

Embryonic Stem cell-based Novel Alternative Testing Strategies (ESNATS)

Date du début: 1 avr. 2008, Date de fin: 30 sept. 2013,

"ESNATS aims at developing a novel toxicity test platform based on embryonic stem cells (ESC), especially human ESC (hESC), to accelerate drug development, reduce R&D costs and propose a powerful alternative to animal tests (3 Rs). ESNATS will address current drug-testing shortcomings: - testing takes place late in the development cycle - animal test systems bear the risk of non-prediction due to ...

The PluriSys project is aimed at increasing the fundamental knowledge of basic biological processes of cell pluripotency and differentiation by generating new holistic data on gene expression and epigenetic modifications associated with cell pluripotency. The project integrates the multidisciplinary excellence in Europe in cell biology, molecular biology and bioinformatics. It also builds on earli ...
