Abstract(s) :

(Anglais) Myotonic dystrophy type 1, also named Steinert’s disease, is a genetic pathology characterized by trinucleotides (CTG) repeat expansions. These mutations are associated with an apparition of muscle disorders that affect many systems (muscular, endocrine, central nervous, …). The objective of this project is to determine molecules that could have a sufficient affinity for these mutated nucleotide sequences in order to suppress DNA/RNA sequences causing the pathology. Firstly, DNA synthesis and plasmid extraction protocols will be developed and optimized by bacterial amplification. The next step will be to quantify the binding constant between oligonucleotides and molecules by affinity capillary electrophoresis.
