Preprint
The induction of cellular reprogramming by forced expression of the transcription factors OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, and C-MYC (OSKM) has been shown to allow the dedifferentiation of somatic cells and ameliorate age-associated phenotypes in multiple tissues and organs. Yet to date, the benefits of in vivo reprogramming are limited by the occurrence of detri...
Article
Huntington’s disease (HD) is a hereditary neurodegenerative disorder of the basal ganglia for which disease-modifying treatments are not yet available. Although gene-silencing therapies are currently being tested, further molecular mechanisms must be explored to identify druggable targets for HD. Cytoplasmic polyadenylation element binding proteins...
Article
Objective Pharmacoresistance and the lack of disease‐modifying actions of current antiseizure drugs persist as major challenges in the treatment of epilepsy. Experimental models of chemoconvulsant‐induced status epilepticus remain the models of choice to discover potential antiepileptogenic drugs, but doubts remain as to the extent to which they mo...

Temporal lobe epilepsy is the most common and refractory form of epilepsy in adults. Gene expression within affected structures such as the hippocampus displays extensive dysregulation and is implicated as a central pathomechanism. Post-transcriptional mechanisms are increasingly recognized as determinants of the gene expression landscape, but key...

The molecular mechanisms that shape the gene expression landscape during the development and maintenance of chronic states of brain hyperexcitability are incompletely understood. Here we show that cytoplasmic mRNA polyadenylation, a posttranscriptional mechanism for regulating gene expression, undergoes widespread reorganisation in temporal lobe ep...
Article
Autism spectrum disorders are early onset neurodevelopmental disorders characterized by deficits in social communication and restricted repetitive behaviors, yet they are quite heterogeneous in terms of their genetic basis and phenotypic manifestations. Recently, de novo pathogenic mutations in DYRK1A, a chromosome 21 gene associated to neuropathol...

Article
Full-text available
Common genetic contributions to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) reside in risk gene variants that individually have minimal effect sizes. As environmental factors that perturb neurodevelopment also underlie idiopathic ASD, it is crucial to identify altered regulators that can orchestrate multiple ASD risk genes during neurodevelopment. Cytoplasmic p...
