Course and current status

Principal Investigator

Scientific summary

My work focused on the functions of cholinesterases, with specific attention to production and analysis of null mutants of cholinesterases in animal models. I have expertise in the genetic aspects of cholinesterase biosynthesis. I also analyzed the phylogeny of cholinesterases and related proteins, and created the database ESTHER (http://bioweb.ensam.inra.fr/ESTHER/general?what=index) dedicated to the analysis of protein and nucleic acid sequences belonging to the superfamily of alpha/beta hydrolases homologous to cholinesterases
