Surprising copper biomineralisation discovered in a strain of magnetotactic bacteria

BIAM scientists and their partners have identified a novel genetically controlled biomineralisation in a magnetotactic bacterium: located at the cell periphery, the periplasm, a genetically-controlled sulfur and copper compound is formed. This discovery opens the way to new bioremediation applications. The living world has a multitude of organisms capable of synthesising mineral structures by incorporating […]

Enzyme tandem responsible for dangerous crop pest fungi

During research on the bioproduction of citrus flavours by phytopathogenic fungi, scientists from INRAE, CNRS and CEA-BIAM discovered the role of a pair of enzymes in their infectious mechanism. This is an important advance that could help accelerate the reduction in the use of fungicides. The objective of the Funtastic project supported by the ANR […]

The photosynthetic booster of microalgae revealed

PRESS RELEASE Press area – An international collaboration involving BIAM researchers and the Carnegie Institution for Science of Stanford (USA) has deciphered the mechanism by which microalgae capture atmospheric CO2 in an extremely efficient manner. The research teams have revealed photosynthetic energy production and distribution networks that are involved in the concentration of CO2 […]

Unveiling the mechanisms of plant adaptation to environmental constraints

Researchers from the BIAM’s Plant Protective Proteins (PPV) team have characterized one of the mechanisms allowing plants to respond to environmental fluctuations that modify metabolism and limit growth. This result, established in partnership with teams from the CEA and CNRS, could help improving plants’ ability to adapt to climate change. Stomata, located on the leaf […]
