Symposium report: Session 2A RNA processing and dysregulation


We were introduced to the topic by a very insightful plenary lecture by Laura Ranum, Professor of Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at the University of Florida. Professor Ranum started out by describing how the central dogma of molecular biology, namely that DNA makes RNA makes protein, had been modified during the last decade using examples…… Continue reading Symposium report: Session 2A RNA processing and dysregulation

SESSION 3A RNA PROCESSING AND DYSREGULATION


The importance of RNA processing in ALS has been well established by the discovery of pathogenic mutations in key RNA processing proteins, most notably TDP-43 which is abnormally aggregated in neurons of almost all patients.  This session described work by a number of groups attempting to characterise the mechanisms associated with RNA processing in ALS…… Continue reading SESSION 3A RNA PROCESSING AND DYSREGULATION
