Unraveling a novel signaling cascade determining dopamine transporter activity and its association with cocaine addiction
In a recent study, Dr. Zhou Jiawei’s lab found that a Rho family GEF protein Vav2 is required for glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) and its cognate receptor Ret-modulated DAT cell surface expression and transporter activity. The results indicate that suppression of Vav2 may be a new approach for combating cocaine addiction.
Reprogramming Study Reveals Single Transcription Factor Ascl1 Converts Astrocytes into Neurons in the Intact Brain
A recent study, published in the June 24th issue of the Journal of Neuroscience, demonstrated that expression of a single transcription factor efficiently induced astrocyte-to-neurons conversion in the intact brain. This work provides a novel approach to obtain functional neurons in the intact brain and a potential therapeutic solution for neural r....
