Cholesterol-directed nanoparticle assemblies based on single amino acid peptide mutations activate cellular uptake and decrease tumor volume.

Cholesterol-directed nanoparticle assemblies based on single amino acid peptide mutations activate cellular uptake and decrease tumor volume. Chem Sci. 2017 Nov 01;8(11):7552-7559 Authors: Li S, Zou R, Tu Y, Wu J, Landry MP Abstract Peptide drugs have been difficult to translate into effective therapies due to their low in vivo stability. Here, we report a […]

Local and distant relationships between amyloid, tau and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s Disease. Neuroimage Clin. 2018;17:452-464 Authors: Iaccarino L, Tammewar G, Ayakta N, Baker SL, Bejanin A, Boxer AL, Gorno-Tempini ML, Janabi M, Kramer JH, Lazaris A, Lockhart SN, Miller BL, Miller ZA, O’Neil JP, Ossenkoppele R, Rosen HJ, Schonhaut DR, Jagust WJ, Rabinovici GD Abstract […]

Fluorogenic Targeting of Voltage-Sensitive Dyes to Neurons.

Fluorogenic Targeting of Voltage-Sensitive Dyes to Neurons. J Am Chem Soc. 2017 Nov 20;: Authors: Liu P, Grenier V, Hong W, Muller VR, Miller EW Abstract We present a method to target voltage-sensitive fluorescent dyes to specified cells using an enzyme-catalyzed fluorogenic reaction on cell surfaces. The dye/enzyme hybrids are composed of a photoinduced electron […]

Widespread Translational Remodeling during Human Neuronal Differentiation.

Widespread Translational Remodeling during Human Neuronal Differentiation. Cell Rep. 2017 Nov 14;21(7):2005-2016 Authors: Blair JD, Hockemeyer D, Doudna JA, Bateup HS, Floor SN Abstract Faithful cellular differentiation requires temporally precise activation of gene expression programs, which are coordinated at the transcriptional and translational levels. Neurons express the most complex set of mRNAs of any human […]
