- Identification of low molecular weight nuclear complexes containing integrase during the early stages of HIV-1 infectionAnnabelle Gérard
INSERM, U1016, Institut Cochin, Paris, France
Retrovirology 10:13. 2013..In infected cells, IN binds the viral cDNA, together with viral and cellular proteins, to form large nucleoprotein complexes. However, the dynamics of IN complexes formation is still poorly understood...
- Two novel families of plasmids from hyperthermophilic archaea encoding new families of replication proteinsNicolas Soler
Institut de Genetique et Microbiologie, Univ Paris Sud, Orsay, France
Nucleic Acids Res 38:5088-104. 2010..This strengthens the idea that plasmids and viruses are a reservoir of novel protein families involved in DNA replication...
- A S-adenosylmethionine methyltransferase-like domain within the essential, Fe-S-containing yeast protein Dre2Nicolas Soler
CNRS UMR2027, Centre Universitaire, Orsay, France
FEBS J 279:2108-19. 2012..We discuss the hypotheses that the activity of the N-terminal domain could be modulated by the redox activity of Fe-S clusters containing the C-terminus domain in vivo...
- Plasmids, viruses and virus-like membrane vesicles from ThermococcalesNicolas Soler
Institut de Genetique et Microbiologie, Univ Paris Sud 11, UMR 8621, CNRS 91405, Orsay, France
Biochem Soc Trans 39:36-44. 2011..Some membrane vesicles of Thermococcus nautilus harbour the plasmid pTN1, suggesting that vesicles can be involved in plasmid transfer between species...
- The rolling-circle plasmid pTN1 from the hyperthermophilic archaeon Thermococcus nautilusNicolas Soler

- Fake virus particles generated by fluorescence microscopyPatrick Forterre
Institut de Genetique et Microbiologie, Universite Paris Sud, CNRS UMR 8621, 91405 Orsay Cedex, France
Trends Microbiol 21:1-5. 2013..Besides trying to improve discrimination between virions and MVs, we suggest adopting less holistic approaches, focusing on the detection of known virus groups and the isolation of new viruses from a broader range of hosts...
- Virus-like vesicles and extracellular DNA produced by hyperthermophilic archaea of the order ThermococcalesNicolas Soler
Univ Paris Sud, Institut de Genetique et Microbiologie, CNRS, UMR 8621, F 91405 Orsay cedex, France
Res Microbiol 159:390-9. 2008..DNA in vesicle preparations is remarkably resistant to DNase treatment and thermodenaturation, indicating that association with vesicles could be an important factor determining DNA stability in natural environments...
- A newly identified essential complex, Dre2-Tah18, controls mitochondria integrity and cell death after oxidative stress in yeastLaurence Vernis
Régulation de la Réplication de l ADN des Eucaryotes, UMR2027 CNRS Institut Curie, INSERM, Universite Paris Sud, Orsay, France
PLoS ONE 4:e4376. 2009..Our results are in favour of an oxidative stress-induced cell death in yeast that involves mitochondria and is controlled by the newly identified Dre2-Tah18 complex...
