Transport mechanisms guarantee a precise distribution of lipids at all points of the cell. Team of Institut de Pharmacologie Moléculaire et Cellulaire (CNRS & Université Côte d’Azur) is decrypting the operating mode of so-called lipid transfer proteins at the heart of these allocation processes. This can be used to understand the various cellular functions, as well as the molecular origins of...
The team of researchers simulates the desorption of a pesticide from a clay surface in the presence of water. The thermodynamics of this desorption will make it possible to compare the simulated data with the experimental macroscopic data relating to the desorption process, of significant value in understanding the release phenomena in water tables.
Numerical simulation is a valuable tool for precisely imaging the internal geological structure of the planet and thus better understanding all the processes at work during major seismic events, with the target of determining operational scenarios for support of public authorities.
