Eukaryotic cells contain extensive internal membranes defining many compartments having each specific functions. However these organelles are constantly moving and reshaping, still retaining their identity. The maintenance of cell compartmentalization in eukaryotes is thus very complex and tightly controlled. Nathalie Sauvonnet’s team deals with intracellular trafficking of eukaryotic cells and how it regulates cell and tissue organization. In particular we study endocytosis and exocytosis pathways and their linked to lipid distribution, cell compartmentalization and host-pathogen interactions. For this purpose we used an array of techniques from high resolution microscopy, single molecules tracking, robust image analysis, statistical classification, crispR-cas9 edition to organ-on-a-chip.
Endocytosis: the clathrin-independent uptake of cytokine receptors
Endocytosis is an essential process used to internalize a wide range of molecules, and involved in many processes such as cell migration, cell division, immunity and pathogen invasion. Several endocytic pathways exist, enabling the […]
Exocytosis: inhibition of secretion/recycling by the pathogen Shigella
The distribution of cholesterol – in a gradient – is essential for compartments organization. Cholesterol distribution within the organelles should be tightly controlled but so far little is known on the dynamics its intracellular […]
