MAPES team / V. Poinsot
The expertise of our team lies in its mastery of methods for isolation of biomolecules by bioguided strateges. Another major focus of the group is the structural identification and semi-quantitative analysis of biomolecules using various complementary analytical techniques.
Isolation and identification of bioactive molecules
> chemical messengers of agronomic interest (factors and mycorrhization nodulation factors)
> and mediators involved in the recognition between cells such cancer cell lines (ovary, lymphocytes, ...) and macrophages.
The compounds that we characterize are usually complex sugars, lipids or peptides.
The aim is to highlight the one hand natural substances for economically viable applications in a sustainable development approach and also to understand the interactions leading to severe pathologies opening new therapeutic avenues.
