    Chambéry babies – Official recognition of the new bacterium identified by the Institut Pasteur, Rouxiella chamberiensis

    Following the death of three newborns at Chambéry hospital (France) in December 2013, scientists at the Institut Pasteur quickly drew connections to a previously unknown bacterium responsible for the contamination of parenteral nutrition bags. Today, these scientists are publishing an article to announce the official recognition and complete characterization of this bacterium, which belongs to an entirely new genus. In homage to Emile Roux, a close collaborator of Louis Pasteur and head of the Institut Pasteur from 1904 to 1933, the bacterium was named Rouxiella chamberiensis. All of the data obtained through the sequencing and characterization of this bacterium have been made available to the wider scientific and medical community.

    Interactions between the nuclear pore and chromatin are critical for HIV-1 replication

    Little is understood about the molecular mechanisms that actually enable the HIV to integrate its genetic material into certain regions of the human genome. The scientists were able to find this link and determine the role played by the chromatin environment and nuclear pores in the replication of HIV-1.

    The "dream" of every cell is to become two cells

    Arnaud Echard (head of the Membrane Traffic and Cell Division Lab) and his team are working to understand how a parent cell physically "cleaves" itself in two to create two distinct daughter cells. The researchers revealed that intercellular bridges split and in doing so release a structure called "midbody remnant" (MBR) into the extracellular environment. This discovery could have a significant impact on cancer research, as the presence of MBR is thought to promote the uncontrolled production of tumor cells.
