Circa 30 million people in Europe suffer from life-threatening rare diseases, which are poorly understood. This major societal burden forces patients into endless paths for a diagnosis often without cure. EU cooperation efforts between countries contribute to improve research and visibility of these diseases with a primary role of the ‘Ospedale pediatrico Bambino Gesù’ (OPBG, Italy). Here, via next generation sequencing technology, Dr. Tartaglia recently described new genetic variants, including some in the tubulin cofactors TBCE and TBCD which alter microtubules (MTs) dynamics (crucial for brain development and maintenance) and cause previously undescribed early onset neurodegeneration. Yet the underlying pathogenic mechanisms and impact on the brain physiology remain elusive. Given the difficulty to reproduce brain physiology in vitro and its general inaccessibility, a vertebrate model amenable to genetic and whole-brain in vivo investigation is necessary. With its rapid and transparent development and genetic and imaging tools improving continuously, the small teleost fish zebrafish is ideal. I will monitor live MTs behaviour and cellular processes (e.g. cell division, axons formation and innervation) in the precursor and mature neurons of zebrafish TBCE and TBCD mutants, focusing on motoneurons. To this aim, I will combine my expertise in fish neurobiology with the host’skills in human genetics (Dr. Tartaglia) and fish gene editing (Dr. Del Bene, France). In line with the current EU efforts, this work will advance our understanding on rare genetic variants causing neurodegeneration. Deciphering the role of MTs dynamics on brain physiology will be relevant also for common brain disorders and exome sequencing of undiagnosed patients will further contribute to a genotype-phenotype catalog. Via an intensive transfer of knowledge, the project will increase EU multi-disciplinary competence on rare disorders in general, providing new models for therapy development.
Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "INNERVATE" project.
For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.
Send me an email (email@example.com) and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.
Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.
