Neurodegeneration & Neural Signaling

Fueling Discovery in the Etiology, Pathology, and Treatment of Neurodegenerative Disease

It is estimated the aging worldwide population will result in over 100 million sufferers of dementia by the year 2050, a postulate that continues to drive major research efforts in neurodegenerative diseases and the associated loss of cognitive function. Diseases such as Alzheimer’s (AD), Parkinson’s (PD), Huntington’s (HD), and Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) are considered diseases of protein homeostasis (proteostasis), characterized by loss of specific neuronal populations, and the presence of inclusion bodies consisting of insoluble, unfolded proteins. Drug development programs for treatment of these diseases include modulators of key proteins and enzymes that regulate proper protein folding, modification, and clearance, seeking to reverse or prevent the accumulation of protein aggregates and toxic intermediates.

 

Protein Aggregation, Autophagy, and Cytotoxicity

Although the mechanism may vary from one class of neurodegenerative disease to another, the principle pathology of AD, PD, HD, and ALS are similar: the cell’s defense mechanisms against protein aggregation (i.e., molecular chaperones, protein degradation & recycling pathways) become overwhelmed, leading to structural defects, apoptosis, and ensuing cognitive defects associated with loss or impairment of neural cell function.

Neuronal Cell Transfection Reagent

Nupherin™ is a biochemical transfection reagent consisting of a cationic peptide fused to a non-classical nuclear localization sequence. The cationic peptide facilitates electrostatic interactions between the DNA and the peptide, and the nuclear localization sequence utilizes the endogenous nuclear transport machinery to deliver the DNA to the nucleus. The end result is high efficiency transfection in non-dividing cells.

Nupherin™ Transfection Reagent

A peptide based reagent combines a non-classical nuclear localization sequence (M9) with a nucleotide binding domain, to help transport DNA into the transfected cell's nucleus.

  • Ultra high-efficiency lipofection of neuronal, ganglion and other difficult to transfect cells
  • Fast, simple and reliable protocol. Ready to transfect in 15 minutes.
  • Compatible with your current transfection protocol
  • Requires no special equipment
