03 May 2017 - Xylosides with anti-aging properties

Abundant in the plant walls, beta-D-xylopyranose (D-Xyl) is present only in the animal kingdom within the glycosaminoglycans (GAG), macromolecules of the extracellular matrix involved in many biological functions. GAG biosynthesis is initiated from protein-bound D-Xyl used as a substrate by a galactosyl transferase (beta-Gal T7). This biosynthesis decreases with age leading to skin relaxation (wrinkles). Functionalized on the anomeric position, D-xyl mimics the D-Xyl-protein set and initiates the exogenous synthesis of GAG thus limiting the age-related synthesis decay.

24 March 2017 - A new epoxy/amine resin produced from a natural bisphenol

A collaborative project between 6 laboratories, led by the Chaire ABI (Pr. Florent Allais) and the IJPB (Dr. Paul-Henri Ducrot), carried out by Dr Marine Janvier (Chaire ABI, IJPB) in association with teh FARE lab (Dr Johnny Beaugrand) has just reached a milestone in the domain of biosourced resin, by producing an epoxy/amine resin from syringaresinol, a natural bisphenol coming from sinapic acid. The synthesis method has used a chimio-enzymatic pathway.
