A nice collaboration with Alessandro Provenzani’s lab on small molecule regulators of C9orf72 RAN translation. Sally investigated their effect in iPSC-motor neurons derived from people with C9orf72 repeat expansions. Paper just out in EMBO Journal: https://www.embopress.org/doi/full/10.15252/embj.2020105026
Soluble and insoluble dipeptide repeat protein measurements in C9orf72-frontotemporal dementia brains show regional differential solubility and correlation of poly-GR with clinical severity. https://actaneurocomms.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s40478-020-01036-y

Good luck with setting up your new lab at the Institute for Stem Cell Biology and Regenerative Medicine (inStem), Bangalore, India.
Adrian presented our recent work on developing new C9orf72 knock-in models at the Packard Centre for ALS Annual Symposium in Baltimore March 2nd-3rd 2020.
We are looking forward to the 2nd European C9orf72 Meeting January 30-31st 2020. This year the meeting is hosted by the Isaacs lab at UCL!

We are pleased to announce the publication of our paper in Acta Neuropathalogica: Gittings, LM, Boeynaems, S, Lightwood, D, Clargo, A, Topia, S, Nakayama, L, Troakes, C, Mann, DMA, Gitler, AD, Lashley, T, Isaacs, AM. Symmetric dimethylation of poly-GR correlates with disease duration in C9orf72 FTLD and ALS and reduces poly-GR…
