Our objective is to determine the molecular mechanism by which membrane glycoproteins of some viruses (HIV, Ebola) induce the fusion of the cell and viral membranes. A branch of this field consists of the characterization of similar domains that may be involved in the infective power of the prion protein. In parallel, we are studying the mechanism of cell membrane permeabilization, induced by certain viral products (viroporins) during infection.
