We used cross-linking and immunoprecipitation coupled with high-throughput sequencing to identify binding sites in 6,304 genes as the brain RNA targets for TDP-43, an RNA binding protein that, when mutated, causes amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Massively parallel sequencing and splicing-sensitive junction arrays revealed that levels of 601 mRNAs were(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is characterized by the accumulation of intraneuronal tau and extracellular amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide. A triple transgenic (Tg) mouse (3xTg-AD) was reported to develop Aβ plaques and tau inclusions as well as remarkable accumulations of intracellular Aβ that were suggested to be the initiators of AD pathogenesis. However, it was(More)
Heat shock proteins (Hsps) facilitate refolding of denatured polypeptides, but there is limited understanding about their roles in neurodegenerative diseases characterized by misfolded proteins. Because Parkinson's disease (PD), dementia with Lewy bodies, and multiple system atrophy are alpha-synucleinopathies characterized by filamentous alpha-synuclein(More)
Cross-linking and immunoprecipitation coupled with high-throughput sequencing was used to identify binding sites within 6,304 genes as the brain RNA targets for TDP-43, an RNA binding protein which when mutated causes Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
