The University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne is a French university, in the Academy of Reims. It was officially established in 1967, as the successor of Rheims University, one of the most important European universities of the Middle Ages, which was established in 1548 and closed in 1793. Wikipedia.

The invention relates to a protein construct, comprising (i) a targeting moiety that is capable of binding to a target cell, and (ii) an effector immunogenic moiety that is capable of triggering an existing, vaccine-induced or natural, immune response. The protein construct, that is preferably in the form of a heteromultimeric protein, is useful for redirecting an immune response that was pre-existing in a patient, toward an undesired target cell.

The method for producing a mixture of neutral oligosaccharides extracted from flaxseed includes oligosaccharides having high molar masses generated by fractionation by ultrafiltration at a cut-off of between 15,000 and 50,000 Da and between 5,000 and 15,000 Da. The mixture of oligosaccharides produced as a result of the implementation of the method, and to the applications of the mixture can be used for skin repair and skin aging control.

A method for measuring the surface potential of a polarized sample includes: measuring the topographic profile of the sample by scanning its surface with a tapered tip connected to a micro-lever activated at the resonance frequency of same by a piezoelectric actuator; placing the tapered tip a constant distance away from the topographic profile of the surface obtained during the previous step; and measuring the electrostatic potential of the surface. The sample is not polarized during the step of measuring the topographic profile. The sample is polarized during the measurement of the potential profile.

The bifunctional peptide is capable of activating collagen synthesis and inhibiting the production of matrix metallo-proteinases. The peptide has a sequence including three peptide parts A, B and C. The first peptide part A corresponds to a hexapeptide repeated at least three times, the part A being capable of bonding to a receptor elastin-binding protein in order to stimulate collagen synthesis. The second peptide part B corresponds to a tetrapeptide capable of acting as a competitive inhibitor of urokinase protease and of being cleaved by said protease. The third peptide part C corresponds to a tripeptide occupying at least one active site of the matrix metallo-proteinases in order to enable inhibition of the proteinases. The present invention further concerns a cosmetic and/or pharmaceutical composition incorporating the bifunctional peptide.
