Publications by year (2009-2019)
-With main authors Patrice Koehl (UC Davis) and Henri Orland (CEA, Saclay), a new look at optimal
Transport theory using the tools of statistical mechanics, just published in Physical Review Letters
-A structural model for human Pol mu interacting with an NHEJ junction containing a DNA double-strand-break,
based on crystal structures of a TdT chimera
that recapitulates all properties of Pol mu, publsihed in JBC, see .
This is a collaboration with the group of M.R. Lieber (USA).
-Cryo-EM structure of the polD DNA polymerase (DP1+DP2) complex, with or without DNA, in PLoS Biol.
-An updated structure-based classification of all extant DNA polymerases (Here).
-Fifth DNA Polymerases Meeting in Leiden, NL (Program here).
-CECAM Meeting on Normal Modes in IHP, Paris, September (Program here).
-New and faster calculations of Normal Modes with Patrice Koehl (Ref).
-Design of a polymerase that generates libraries of random RNA in Nucleic Acids Res.
2017-Simulating the transition path between two known forms of a macromolecule using mixed ENMs,
in J. Chem. Phys. This is a follow up of our previous MAP method (see also P. Koehl in J. Chem. Phys.)
-Organisation with Y.H. Sanejouand of a one day meeting in Normal Mode analysis and Conformational Transitions in Pasteur (30 May 2017)
DNA Polymerases and DNA Repair
-X-ray structure of Archaeal polD DNA polymerase reveals a catalytic site similar to multi-subunit RNA polymerases that are found in all domains of life,
by L. Sauguet, P. Raia, G. Henneke and M. Delarue (Nature Commun).
-Structural basis for an unexpected "in trans" templated activity by TdT: implications for V(D)J recombination and DNA double-strand-breaks repair in eukaryotes,
J. Loc'h, S. Rosario and M. Delarue (Structure).
Pentameric Ligand-gated ion channels (pentaLGICs): drug binding sites in different conformational states
-TdT structures in complex with a DNA synapsis shed new light on DNA Double-Strand-Break Repair by NHEJ (EMBO J., Mar 2015).
-Structural basis for ion permeation in GLIC (EMBO Journal, Jan 2013) at 2.4 Angstrom
-Snapshots of Terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase caught in action: dynamical aspects of the two-metal-ion mechanism (J. Gouge et al., J. Mol. Biol., Jul 2013)
-Structure of Archaeal DNA polymerase (polB) from P. abyssi in editing mode by J. Gouge et al. (JMB)
a web-based software to calculate SAXS spectra from PDB coordinates,
including the solvent density predicted by AquaSol, is now available on-line.
These sites provide online servers for algorithms such as normal mode
calculation, structural refinement, solvation, mutation and (later) transition path calculation.
