...is a critical building block that regulates a fundamental process-memory," said Kirill Martemyanov, a TSRI associate professor who led the study. "Now that we know about this important new player, it offers a unique therapeutic window if we can find a way to enhance its function."
...syndrome, that result from a disproportionate increase in neuronal inhibition as a result of greater mobilization of these channels," he said. " Now that we know the identity of the critical modulator of GIRK channels we can try to find a way to increase its power with the hopes of reducing the inhibitory overdrive, and that might potentially alleviate some of the disruptions seen in Down's syndrome. It is possible that similar strategies might apply for dealing with addiction, where adaptations in the GABAb-GIRK pathway play a significant role."
...and tumors in the organs where they reside," said senior investigator Wayne M Yokoyama, MD, the Sam and Audrey Loew Levin Professor of Medicine. "Cells that only defend one organ may be much better equipped than the roaming immune cells to mount an attack and limit collateral damage to healthy tissue."
...makes it possible to ask if patients with p53 structural variations have different outcomes than patients with other TP53 mutations," Dyer said. "That would help us identify where to focus clinical research efforts."
