Figures and Tables from this paper

Comparison of an expanded ataxia interactome with patient medical records reveals a relationship between macular degeneration and ataxia
TLDR
Novel protein interactions are identified for CACNA1A and ATXN7 linking them to other ataxia-causing proteins and theAtaxia network, and potential pathways that can contribute to the pathophysiology of ataxIA, MD, and diseases comorbid with ataxian diseases are suggested.
Integrative network and brain expression analysis reveals mechanistic modules in ataxia
TLDR
Genetic defects in ataxia predominantly affect neuronal homeostasis, to which the cerebellum appears to be excessively susceptible, suggesting that the defence pathways against stress are more critical to maintain cerebellar integrity than integrity of other brain regions.
The protein interaction network of the inherited central nervous system diseases reveals new gene candidates for molecularly unclassified myelin disorders
TLDR
The myelin disease network is assembled, in which each node represents a protein (either the mutated protein or one of its interactors), while each edge linking two nodes represents the physical interaction between the two proteins.
Integrative Network and Brain Expression Analysis reveals Mechanistic Modules in Ataxia
TLDR
It is conceivable to propose common therapeutic interventions that target deregulated calcium and ROS levels, or mechanisms that can decrease the harmful downstream effects of these deleterious insults, based on the identified modules.
Polyglutamine Genes Interact to Modulate the Severity and Progression of Neurodegeneration in Drosophila
TLDR
It is indicated that the toxicity of one polyglutamine disease protein can be dramatically modulated by the normal activity of another, and proposed that functional links between these genes are critical to disease severity and progression, such that therapeutics for one disease may be applicable to others.
Huntingtin Interacting Proteins Are Genetic Modifiers of Neurodegeneration
TLDR
It is demonstrated that high-throughput screening for protein interactions combined with genetic validation in a model organism is a powerful approach for identifying novel candidate modifiers of polyglutamine toxicity.
The ataxia protein sacsin is a functional co-chaperone that protects against polyglutamine-expanded ataxin-1
TLDR
The neuronal expression of sacsin and functionally characterized domains of the 4579 amino acid protein are established and sacsin contains a predicted J-domain, the defining feature of DnaJ/Hsp40 proteins, and the presence of both UbL and J-domains in sacsin suggests that it may integrate the ubiquitin–proteasome system and Hsp70 function to a specific cellular role.
Systematic interaction mapping reveals novel modifiers of neurodegenerative disease processes
TLDR
Five neurodegenerative diseases are connected by four proteins that link known NDPs such as huntingtin, TDP-43, parkin, ataxin-1 and SOD1, and analysis of publicly available gene expression data suggested that the mRNA expression of the four proteins is abnormally altered in brains of ND patients.
Genome-Wide Screen for Modifiers of Ataxin-3 Neurodegeneration in Drosophila
TLDR
Findings provide new insight into molecular pathways of polyQ toxicity, defining novel targets for promoting neuronal survival in human neurodegenerative disease.

Over-expression of inducible HSP70 chaperone suppresses neuropathology and improves motor function in SCA1 mice.
TLDR
It is found that high levels of HSP70 did indeed afford protection against neurodegeneration in invertebrate animal models of polyglutamine disorders, and enhancing chaperone activity could mitigate the phenotype in a mammalian model.
Identification of genes that modify ataxin-1-induced neurodegeneration
TLDR
It is shown that high levels of wild-type ataxin-1 can cause degenerative phenotypes similar to those caused by the expanded protein, and may be relevant to the treatment of polyglutamine diseases and, perhaps, to other neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.
Comparison of pathways controlling toxicity in the eye and brain in Drosophila models of human neurodegenerative diseases.
TLDR
It is found that a final common pathway of cell death involving apoptosis is found in the models of polyglutamine diseases and in a Drosophila model of tauopathy, which suggests shared pathways of toxicity among all the disorders.
A Mutation in Af4 Is Predicted to Cause Cerebellar Ataxia and Cataracts in the Robotic Mouse
TLDR
It is demonstrated that Af4 is specifically expressed in Purkinje cells, and it is hypothesize that the expression of mutant Af4 leads to neurodegeneration, highlighting the power of phenotype-driven mutagenesis in the mouse to identify new pathways involved in neurological disease.
Histone deacetylase inhibitors arrest polyglutamine-dependent neurodegeneration in Drosophila
TLDR
It is shown that the polyglutamine-containing domain of Htt, Htt exon 1 protein (Httex1p), directly binds the acetyltransferase domains of two distinct proteins: CREB-binding protein (CBP) and p300/CBP-associated factor (P/CAF).
Pathways to motor incoordination: the inherited ataxias
TLDR
An integrated view of the field is provided, encompassing the similarities and differences between pathological processes that cause ataxia, and recent insights into the pathogenic mechanisms that lead to specific neuronal dysfunction and neurodegeneration are discussed.
Loss of cerebellar Purkinje cells in aged mice homozygous for a disrupted PrP gene
TLDR
It is found that homozygous loss of the PrP gene has no deleterious effect on the development of these mice and renders them resistant to prion2, suggesting that PrP plays a role in the long-term survival of Purkinje neurons.
Disruption of the nuclear hormone receptor RORα in staggerer mice
TLDR
A model is proposed in which RORα interacts with the thyroid hormone signalling pathway to induce Purkinje-cell maturation, in which staggerer mice were found to carry a deletion within the ROR α gene that prevents translation of the ligand-binding homology domain.
CLIP Identifies Nova-Regulated RNA Networks in the Brain
TLDR
CLIP reveals that Nova coordinately regulates a biologically coherent set of RNAs encoding multiple components of the inhibitory synapse, an observation that may relate to the cause of abnormal motor inhibition in POMA.
