Phytotoxic metabolites from Neofusicoccum parvum, a pathogen of Botryosphaeria dieback of grapevine

Abou-Mansour, Eliane ; Débieux, Jean-Luc ; Ramírez-Suero, Montserrat ; Bénard-Gellon, Mélanie ; Magnin-Robert, Maryline ; Spagnolo, Alessandro ; Chong, Julie ; Farine, Sibylle ; Bertsch, Christohpe ; L’Haridon, Floriane ; Serrano, Mario ; Fontaine, Florence ; Rego, Cecilia ; Larignon, Philippe

Liquid chromatography-diode array screening of the organic extract of the cultures of 13 isolates of the fungus Neofusicoccum parvum, the main causal agent of botryosphaeria dieback of grapevine, showed similar metabolites. One strain was selected for further chemical studies and led to the isolation and characterisation of 13 metabolites. Structures were elucidated through spectroscopic...

Synthesis of Hexa-peri-hexobenzocoronenes Carrying Linear or Branched Perfluoroalkylated Side Chains

Aebischer, Olivier F. ; Muñoz, David T. ; Tondo, Patrick ; Débieux, Jean-Luc ; Jenny, Titus A.

In: Synthesis, 2010, vol. 7, p. 1123-1140

Substituted disc-shaped perfluoroalkylated hexa-peri-hexabenzocoronenes (HBC), known to self-assemble into conducting ordered architectures, were synthesized and characterized. A systematic variation of the linear or branched perfluoroalkylated side chains was performed in order to screen the influence of the lateral chain on their one-dimensional self-aggregation.

Social withdrawal and gambling-like profile after lentiviral manipulation of DAT expression in the rat accumbens

Adriani, Walter ; Boyer, Frederic ; Leo, Damiana ; Canese, Rossella ; Podo, Franca ; Perrone-Capano, Carla ; Dreyer, Jean-Luc ; Laviola, Giovanni

In: The International Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology, 2010, p. -

Dysfunction of brain dopamine transporter (DAT) has been associated with sensation seeking and impulse-control disorders. We recently generated a new animal model by stereotaxical inoculation of lentiviral vectors, which allowed localized intra-accumbal delivery of modulators for DAT gene: GFP (green fluorescent protein) control, silencers (Sil), a regulatable enhancer (DAT+), or both (DAT+Sil)....

Increased impulsive behavior and risk proneness following lentivirus-mediated dopamine transporter over-expression in rats' nucleus accumbens

Adriani, W. ; Boyer, Frederic ; Gioiosa, L. ; Macrì, S. ; Dreyer, Jean-Luc ; Laviola, G.

In: Neuroscience, 2009, vol. 159, no. 1, p. 47-58

Multiple theories have been proposed for sensation seeking and vulnerability to impulse-control disorders [Zuckerman M, Kuhlman DM (2000) Personality and risk-taking: Common biosocial factors. J Pers 68:999–1029], and many of these rely on a dopamine system deficit. Available animal models reproduce only some behavioral symptoms and seem devoid of construct validity. We used lentivirus tools...
