Congratulations to all the CNRS team for running the Marseille-Cassis race two weekends ago, and especially to Claude Villard (7th from the left, top row), INP team 9 and PINT facility member who ran this semi-marathon in 1 hour and 48 minutes.
Next year, let's make a whole INP team (as usual, the race will take place on the last Sunday of October)!
For more information, head to the race's official website.
During the NeuroStories event, held on Monday October 7 at the Faculty of Medicine, Anne-Marie François Bellan gave a remarkable stand up on how our body vibrates to the rhythm of internal chronometers called circadian clocks. She also explained how the molecular clock uses small corpuscles and cell space to make our genes rhythm.

The cIMPACT-NOW Working Committee is the Consortium to Inform Molecular and Practical Approaches to CNS Tumor Taxonomy. cIMPACT-NOW was created in late 2016 —following publication of the 2016 Updated 4th Edition of the World Health Organization (WHO) Classification of Tumours of the Central Nervous System— to provide a forum to evaluate and recommend proposed changes to future CNS tumor classifications.
During the 14th EANO annual meeting 3 members of INP team #8 presented their work on Glioma in a plenary conference «CDKN2A homozygous deletion is a strong adverse prognosis factor in diffuse malignant IDHmutant gliomas» Dominique Figarella Branger, a short talk «Plasmatic differential scanning fluorimetry profiles discriminate glioma patients from healthy controls» Emeline Tabouret and two posters «P11.06: Non epigenetic effect of vorinostat in glioblastoma cells» and «EB1-dependant long survival of glioblastoma cancer stem-like cells tumor
Nadia Merad Coliac, plastic designer, joined the NOSE (Nasal Olfactory Stemness and Epigenesis) team, as an Associate researcher. At the crossroads of several disciplines, she develops an experimental work of art and science, in the field of bioluminescence. She is considering a therapeutic application in patients with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Recently, Nadia published Lumière vivante - Théorie et pratique de la bioluminescence (Living light - theory and use of bioluminescence) - L’Harmattan eds.
Many members of the INP attended the annual Canceropole PACA meeting in the Palais des Congrès of St Raphaël on the 4th and 5th of july. In the frame of the translational research call, F. Devred (INP team 9) & E. Tabouret (INP team 8) presented the results and perspective of their project "Next generation plasma profiling of gliomas using nanoDSF: toward a new prognostic and monitoring tool"
INP team 8 and 9 and PINT members being part of the French Microtubule Network, several members presented their work at the 4th French Microtubule Network gathering in Rennes on the 1srt and 2nd july 2019, in the "Microtubules and their regulators : new therapeutic targets" session and the "Microtubules, assembly and regulation" session. Pascale Barbier presented her work "", Raphael Berges his work "Proscillaridin A exerts anti-tumor effects through"GSK3 activation and alteration of microtubule dynamics in glioblastoma" and François Devred a new method of "Functional screening of therapeutic agents and targets using nanoDSF "
As part of her PhD, Sylvie Carmona investigated the beneficial effects of NV669, an aminosterol derived from squalamine on human pancreatic and hepatic cancer models. In vitro results exposed in this paper showed that NV669 inhibited the proliferation of cancer cells, induced cell cycle arrest and subsequent apoptosis. Moreover, NV669 inhibited PTP1B activity and impacted adhesion molecules expression. This suggests that NV669 by inhibiting PTP1B would affect cell contacts and would induce apoptosis.

L'équipe 8 (GlioME) a le plaisir d'accueillir deux étudiants en Master 2, Anaïs Arathni étudiante en Master Biologie Santé et Emmanuel Snacel-Fazy étudiant en Master Neurosciences. Anaïs travaillera avec Aurélie Tchoghandjian sur la caractérisation des cellules immunitaires recrutées sur le site tumoral suite au traitement par mimétiques de Smac. Emmanuel travaillera avec Chiara Bastiancich sur le microenvironnement de la résection tumorale du glioblastome.
Christophe Leterrier, leader of the NeuroCyto ATIP team, wrote a Spotlight in the Journal of Cell Biology highlighting a nice recent paper from the group of Pei-Lin Cheng in Taiwan. In this article, Lee et al. showed how degradation of the chloride transporter NKCC1 by proteasomes anchored at the AIS have a key role in lowering the intracellular chloride concentration, leading to the perinatal reversal of GABA effect from excitatory to inhibitory.
