    Charcot-Marie-Tooth 2B mutations in rab7 cause dosage-dependent neurodegeneration due to partial loss of function

    Smita Cherry et al.
    Mutations that reduce the functioning of rab7 may underlie the degeneration of sensory and motor nerves in Charcot-Marie-Tooth 2B disease, which suggests increasing endolysosomal function as a therapy.

    Alleviation of neuronal energy deficiency by mTOR inhibition as a treatment for mitochondria-related neurodegeneration

    Xinde Zheng et al.
    Rapamycin treatment inhibits mTOR activity and preserves ATP levels in neurons derived from induced pluripotent stem cells from a maternally inherited Leigh syndrome patient.

    Determining composition of micron-scale protein deposits in neurodegenerative disease by spatially targeted optical microproteomics

    Kevin C Hadley et al.
    STOMP is a technique that can determine the proteomic composition of any feature that is identifiable by laser scanning microscopy and is at least one cubic micron in size.

    Inducible and reversible phenotypes in a novel mouse model of Friedreich’s Ataxia

    Vijayendran Chandran et al.
    Restoration of endogenous frataxin levels reverses neurologic and cardiac phenotypes associated with Friedreich's ataxia in adult mice even after significant motor dysfunction.

    A novel ALS-associated variant in UBQLN4 regulates motor axon morphogenesis

    Brittany M Edens et al.
    A novel ALS-associated variant in UBQLN4 impairs proteasome function and beta-catenin degradation to drive aberrant axon morphogenesis in motor neurons.

    APP and APLP2 interact with the synaptic release machinery and facilitate transmitter release at hippocampal synapses

    Tomas Fanutza et al.
    A naturally occurring intracellular peptide, derived by processing the Alzheimer's protein APP, reduces synaptic transmission by acting as a dominant negative of APP.

    The sheddase ADAM10 is a potent modulator of prion disease

    Hermann C Altmeppen et al.
    A lack of ADAM10-mediated shedding increases prion protein levels at the plasma membrane and promotes the generation of pathological prion proteins, which accelerates prion disease in mice.
