“Cystinosis Research Foundation” 2018 symposium

Bruno André attended to the last scientific symposium organized by the “Cystinosis Research Foundation” (Irvine, USA, March 1-2). The meeting gathered all the research groups supported by the CRF and conducting fundamental or clinical research studies on cystinosis, a rare genetic disease caused by mutations in the CTNS gene. This gene encodes a transporter present at the lysosomal membrane and catalyzing export to the cytosol of cystine, the compound made of two cysteines linked by a disulfide bridge. B. André presented the work carried out in his lab about cysteine transport across the vacuolar membrane in yeast cells.
