Nos activités de recherche sont orientées vers la caractérisation biochimique, biophysique et structurale de protéines impliquées dans la physiologie et la pathogénèse bactériennes, plus particulièrement dans les processus de signalisation.

PknA/PknB in mycobacterial cell division
The genes pknA and pknB are located near the origin of replication in M. tuberculosis and are part of a conserved operon that also includes pstP (coding the only known Ser/Thr protein phosphatase […]
Control of glutamate metabolism in mycobacteria
We recently demonstrated the existence of a phosphorylation-dependent control of glutamate metabolism in mycobacteria, in collaboration with H. O’Hare’s group in Leicester (O’Hare et al., 2008). Our results were supported by similar observations […]
Envelope stress response
Our group, which has a long-term interest in protein folding, studies protein quality control systems in the periplasm of Escherichia coli. Our main objective is to understand the mechanism of misfolded protein sensing by […]
Structural studies of type II topoisomerases
Our main research projects focus on structural and functional studies of M. tuberculosis DNA gyrase and aim to understand the structural dynamics of DNA recognition by DNA gyrase and the quinolone resistance mechanisms […]
ATPase inhibitors, the cases of human heat shock protein 90 and bacterial type IIA topoisomerases
Organic synthesis, still the limiting factor of Medicinal Chemistry? This ongoing project is based on our reviews (1-3) on the inhibitors of the ATPase functions of human heat shock protein 90 (HSP90) or […]
Acyl-CoAs are the major metabolic carriers of carbon in living organisms. The most conserved ways to their synthesis include the oxidative decarboxylation of α-ketoacids carried out by three distinct enzymatic machineries: the pyruvate dehydrogenase […]
