Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress represents an early pathological event in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). ATF4 is a key ER stress transcription factor that plays a role in both adaptation to stress and the activation of apoptosis. Here we investigated the contribution of ATF4 to ALS. ATF4 deficiency reduced the rate of birth of SOD1(G86R) transgenic(More)
During axon targeting, a stereotyped pattern of connectivity is achieved by the integration of intrinsic genetic programs and the response to extrinsic long and short-range directional cues. How this coordination occurs is the subject of intense study. Transcription factors play a central role due to their ability to regulate the expression of multiple(More)
The DLG-MAGUK subfamily of proteins plays a role on the recycling and clustering of glutamate receptors (GLUR) at the postsynaptic density. discs-large1 (dlg) is the only DLG-MAGUK gene in Drosophila and originates two main products, DLGA and DLGS97 which differ by the presence of an L27 domain. Combining electrophysiology, immunostaining and genetic(More)
All metazoan cells are able to make decisions about cell division or cellular differentiation based, in part, on environmental cues. Accordingly, cells express receptor systems that allow them to detect the presence of hormones, growth factors and other signals that manipulate the regulatory processes of the cell. In plants, an unusual signal-light-is(More)
Due to their inherent robustness, artificial neural network models have proven to be successful and have been used extensively in biological wastewater treatment applications. However, only recently, with the scientific advancements made in biological waste gas treatment systems, the application of neural networks have slowly gained the practical momentum(More)
