Identification of ncRNAs as Potential Therapeutic Targets in Multiple Sclerosis Through Differential ncRNA – mRNA Network Analysis
(Biomed Central, 2015-03-28)
Background: Several studies have revealed a potential role for both small nucleolar RNAs (snoRNAs) and microRNAs (miRNAs) in the physiopathology of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS). This potential implication ...
iPS Cell Cultures from a Gerstmann-Sträussler-Scheinker Patient with the Y218N PRNP Mutation Recapitulate tau Pathology
(Humana Press, 2018-04)
Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker (GSS) syndrome is a fatal autosomal dominant neurodegenerative prionopathy clinically characterized by ataxia, spastic paraparesis, extrapyramidal signs and dementia. In some GSS familiar ...
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: a complex syndrome that needs an integrated research approach
(Wolters Kluwer, 2019-02)
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, the most common neurodegenerative disease affecting motor neurons, lacks an effective treatment. A small fraction of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis cases have a familial origin, related to ...
Acetylome in Human Fibroblasts From Parkinson's Disease Patients
(Frontiers Media SA, 2018-04-17)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is amultifactorial neurodegenerative disorder. The pathogenesis of this disease is associated with gene and environmental factors. Mutations in leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) are the most ...
The Unexpected Co-Occurrence of GRN and MAPT p.A152T in Basque Families: Clinical and Pathological Characteristics
(Public Library Science, 2017-06-08)
Background The co-occurrence of the c.709-1G > A GRN mutation and the p.A152T MAPT variant has been identified in 18 Basque families affected by frontotemporal dementia (FTD). We aimed to investigate the influence of ...
Gut microbiome and serum metabolome analyses identify molecular biomarkers and altered glutamate metabolism in fibromyalgia
Background: Fibromyalgia is a complex, relatively unknown disease characterised by chronic, widespread musculoskeletal pain. The gut-brain axis connects the gut microbiome with the brain through the enteric nervous system ...
Calcium Mechanisms in Limb-Girdle Muscular Dystrophy with CAPN3 Mutations
Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy recessive 1 (LGMDR1), previously known as LGMD2A, is a rare disease caused by mutations in the CAPN3 gene. It is characterized by progressive weakness of shoulder, pelvic, and proximal limb ...
Dermic-derived fibroblasts for the study of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
(Wolters Kluwer - Medknow, 2020-11)
Isolation and characterization of myogenic precursor cells from human cremaster muscle
(Nature Publishing, 2019-03-05)
Human myogenic precursor cells have been isolated and expanded from a number of skeletal muscles, but alternative donor biopsy sites must be sought after in diseases where muscle damage is widespread. Biopsy sites must be ...
A neural extracellular matrix-based method for in vitro hippocampal neuron culture and dopaminergic differentiation of neural stem cells
(BioMed Central, 2013)
Background: The ability to recreate an optimal cellular microenvironment is critical to understand neuronal behavior and functionality in vitro. An organized neural extracellular matrix (nECM) promotes neural cell ...
