Dipeptide repeat (DPR) proteins are toxic in various models of FTD/ALS with GGGGCC (G4C2) repeat expansion. However, it is unclear whether nuclear G4C2 RNA foci also induce neurotoxicity. Here, we describe a Drosophila model expressing 160 G4C2 repeats (160R) flanked by human intronic and exonic sequences. Spliced intronic 160R formed nuclear G4C2 sense RNA(More)
The Encyclopedia of DNA Elements (ENCODE) consortium aims to identify all functional elements in the human genome including transcripts, transcriptional regulatory regions, along with their chromatin states and DNA methylation patterns. The ENCODE project generates data utilizing a variety of techniques that can enrich for regulatory regions, such as(More)
CpG-containing oligodeoxynucleotides (CpG ODN) have broad-ranging immunostimulatory effects, including the generation of antitumor immune responses. Analysis of different CpG ODN have identified two classes: CpG-A ODN, which stimulate high levels of IFN-alpha production from plasmacytoid dendritic cells and weakly activate B cells, and CpG-B ODN, which(More)
Intravesical administration of Mycobacterium bovis bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) continues to be a successful immunotherapy for superficial bladder cancer. Recently, workers in our laboratory observed expression of tumor necrosis factor-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TRAIL) on neutrophils in voided urine following BCG therapy. Neutrophils released a(More)
