    Genomics of 1 million parent lifespans implicates novel pathways and common diseases and distinguishes survival chances

    Paul RHJ Timmers et al.
    Genomic associations with lifespan principally reflect heart disease/smoking/dementia but not other cancers, and distinguish lifespan differences of five years between top/bottom deciles of a score derived from DNA alone.

    Unexpected similarities between C9ORF72 and sporadic forms of ALS/FTD suggest a common disease mechanism

    Erin G Conlon et al.
    Idiopathic patients along a complex motor neuron disease-dementia spectrum exhibit mRNA splicing changes that are due to multi-protein insolubility.

    Implementation of an antibody characterization procedure and application to the major ALS/FTD disease gene C9ORF72

    Carl Laflamme et al.
    An easy-to-implement antibody validation pipeline addresses the reproducibility crisis resulting from the use of non-specific antibodies.

    Adjusting for age improves identification of gut microbiome alterations in multiple diseases

    Tarini S Ghosh et al.
    A multi-cohort analysis of 2,500 gut microbiomes and five major diseases discovers that disease-microbiome associations display specific age-centric trends, with diseases characterized by age-centric trends of species gain/loss.

    The genetic landscape for amyloid beta fibril nucleation accurately discriminates familial Alzheimer’s disease mutations

    Mireia Seuma et al.
    A massively parallel analysis of the effects of mutations on amyloid beta nucleation provide the first comprehensive atlas of how mutations alter the formation of amyloid fibrils.

    Obesity-linked suppression of membrane-bound O-acyltransferase 7 (MBOAT7) drives non-alcoholic fatty liver disease

    Robert N Helsley et al.
    Loss of function of membrane-bound O-acyltransferase 7 (MBOAT7), but not transmembrane channel-like 4 (TMC4), promotes hepatic steatosis.

    Preserving neuromuscular synapses in ALS by stimulating MuSK with a therapeutic agonist antibody

    Sarah Cantor et al.
    An agonist antibody to MuSK, delivered after disease onset, decreases the loss of neuromuscular synapses, improves motor function and extends the lifespan of ALS mice.

    The metal cofactor zinc and interacting membranes modulate SOD1 conformation-aggregation landscape in an in vitro ALS model

    Achinta Sannigrahi et al.
    How do the metal cofactors present in the protein SOD1 collaborate with the interacting membrane to define the role of this protein in the disease ALS?
