Role of Neurofilaments and Mitochondria in the Pathogenic Cascade of ARSACS : Relevant Biomarkers for Therapeutic Development” – Dr. Heather Durham

In Research in 2016 by ARSACS

The research project has two specific aims: to continue experiments to determine if loss of sacsin functions in NF metabolism plays a central role in pathogenesis of ARSACS and to determine the effect of sacsin domains on the phenotype in our ARSACS culture models and based on those data to develop a therapeutic peptide to move forward in preclinical testing.
