    Team: Oncogenic functions of beta-catenin signaling in the liver

    Mouse models for β-catenin-dependent liver carcinogenesis
    The hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is the most common form of primitive liver cancer and the second cause of cancer related death worldwide. About 30% of HCCs are characterized by activation of the Wnt/β-catenin pathway, mostly due to activating mutations of CTNNB1, the gene encoding the B-catenin. This research project aims to demonstrate the oncogenic potential of Ctnnb1 exon 3 deletion using CRISPR/Cas9 in vivo. This allows the deletion of Ctnnb1 exon 3 by targeting simultaneously intron 2 and 3. Even if the exon 3 deletion is well described in human HCCs its oncogenic properties has not been demonstrated in mice. This is why this model will be compared to 1- a murine model of liver carcinogenesis induced by hepatic-specific Cre-loxP mediated disruption of Apc inducing B-catenin activation in the liver 2- a Cre-loxP model of Ctnnb1 Exon 3 deletion.

    Iron is neurotoxic in retinal detachment and transferrin confers neuroprotection
    In retinal detachment (RD), photoreceptor death and permanent vision loss is caused by neurosensory retina separating from the retinal pigment epithelium because of subretinal fluid (SRF), and successful surgical reattachment is not predictive of total visual recovery. As retinal iron overload exacerbates cell death in retinal diseases, we assessed iron as a predictive marker and therapeutic target for RD. In the vitreous and SRF from RD patients, we measured increased iron and transferrin (TF) saturation that is correlated with poor visual recovery. In ex vivo and in vivo RD models, iron induces immediate necrosis and delayed apoptosis. We demonstrate that TF decreases both apoptosis and necroptosis induced by RD and using RNA sequencing, pathways mediating the neuroprotective effects of TF are identified. Since toxic iron accumulates in RD, we propose TF supplementation as an adjunctive therapy to surgery for improving the visual outcomes of RD patients.

    Improving Workplace Wellness: All Actors !

    Workplace well-being is an increasingly important issue at Inserm for
    health but also on quality of work issues.
    This presentation is made up of two parts: how work organization affects the quality of work, well-being and investment at work. The second part will focus on harmful behaviours in the workplace. The purpose of this presentation is to capture the interactions between work organization, work behaviours and quality of life at work
