Autophagy Receptors in antigen presentation and antiviral T cell immunity
Image is not available

Autophagy receptor T6BP (TAX1BP1) stabilizes the invariant chain (CD74) and regulates MHC-II molecule (MHC-II) trafficking, thereby favouring the presentation of high affinity peptides to virus-specific CD4+ T cells.

Artificials proteins, αReps, targeting the SARS-CoV-2 spike as antivirals
Image is not available

Specific binders targeting the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein were selected from the αRep library. Two combined αRep nanoligands neutralize SARS-CoV-2 variants and reduce infection severity in hamster.

Edith Wilmart joined I2BC in September 2022 to build up a Scientific Affairs Department and to make the best use of the unit’s potential and structure
the contractual and partnership policy.
Lorena Solarte Fajardo has just joined the scientific affairs as a transfer engineer (business developer).

Scientific Affairs Department will strengthen the academic and industrial partnership policy based on the scientific and technological wealth of the research teams, platforms and
transverse programmes.

November 25th   The "Drug and Technology for Health" Department is part of the CEA's Joliot Institute, as is the I2BC. The aim of the DMTS-I2BC day is to get to know each other and to encourage potential collaborations. Two themes were chosen for this first edition: "Host-Microbe Interactions" and "Molecular Tools for Biology". More informations here
