Inheritance patterns of ATCCT repeat interruptions in spinocerebellar ataxia type 10 (SCA10) expansions.
 

Author(s): Ivette Landrian, Karen N McFarland, Jilin Liu, Connie J Mulligan, Astrid Rasmussen, Tetsuo Ashizawa

Journal:

 

Spinocerebellar ataxia type 10 (SCA10), an autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia disorder, is caused by a non-coding ATTCT microsatellite repeat expansion in the ataxin 10 gene. In a subset of SCA10 families, the 5'-end of the repeat expansion contains a complex sequence of penta- ...

Autophagy Promoted the Degradation of Mutant ATXN3 in Neurally Differentiated Spinocerebellar Ataxia-3 Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells.
 

Author(s): Zhanhui Ou, Min Luo, Xiaohua Niu, Yuchang Chen, Yingjun Xie, Wenyin He, Bing Song, Yexing Xian, Di Fan, Shuming OuYang, Xiaofang Sun

Journal: Biomed Res Int. 2016 ;2016():6701793.

 

Spinocerebellar ataxia-3 (SCA3) is the most common dominant inherited ataxia worldwide and is caused by an unstable CAG trinucleotide expansion mutation within the ATXN3 gene, resulting in an expanded polyglutamine tract within the ATXN3 protein. Many in vitro studies have examined ...

Fusion of Human Fetal Mesenchymal Stem Cells with "Degenerating" Cerebellar Neurons in Spinocerebellar Ataxia Type 1 Model Mice.
 

Author(s): Fathul Huda, Yiping Fan, Mamiko Suzuki, Ayumu Konno, Yasunori Matsuzaki, Nobutaka Takahashi, Jerry K Y Chan, Hirokazu Hirai

Journal:

 

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) migrate to damaged tissues, where they participate in tissue repair. Human fetal MSCs (hfMSCs), compared with adult MSCs, have higher proliferation rates, a greater differentiation capacity and longer telomeres with reduced senescence. Therefore, transplantation ...

Gene suppression strategies for dominantly inherited neurodegenerative diseases: lessons from Huntington's disease and spinocerebellar ataxia.
 

Author(s): Megan S Keiser, Holly B Kordasiewicz, Jodi L McBride

Journal: Hum. Mol. Genet.. 2016 Apr;25(R1):R53-64.

 

RNA-targeting approaches are emerging as viable therapeutics that offer an alternative method to modulate traditionally 'undrugable' targets. In the case of dominantly inherited neurodegenerative diseases, gene suppression strategies can target the underlying cause of these intractable ...

Kv3.3 potassium channels and spinocerebellar ataxia.
 

Author(s): Yalan Zhang, Leonard K Kaczmarek

Journal: J. Physiol. (Lond.). 2016 Aug;594(16):4677-84.

 

The voltage-dependent potassium channel subunit Kv3.3 is expressed at high levels in cerebellar Purkinje cells, in auditory brainstem nuclei and in many other neurons capable of firing at high rates. In the cerebellum, it helps to shape the very characteristic complex spike of Purkinje ...
