Summary: This Editorial introduces a new Special Collection, ‘Neurodegeneration: from models to mechanisms to therapies’, providing a summary of the research and review articles published in this launch issue, as well as highlighting some of DMM's most-read neurodegeneration-related articles from recent issues.


Summary: Huda Zoghbi discusses her remarkable journey from the clinic to the bench, highlighting the experiences and collaborations that inspired her interest in neurological diseases such as spinocerebellar ataxia type 1 (SCA1) and Rett syndrome.


Summary: In this At a Glance review, Edward Lee and co-authors provide an overview of RNA metabolism defects, including mislocalization of RNA-binding proteins and microRNA biogenesis alterations, that contribute to neurodegenerative disease pathology.


Summary: This Review article discusses the important roles that calcium plays in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease.

Summary: In this Review, Ludo Van Den Bosch and colleagues discuss the different model systems for studying ALS and how they have contributed to our current understanding of the etiology and pathology of this neurodegenerative disease.


Editors' choice: CB2 receptors are upregulated in activated astrocytes recruited at the damaged spinal cord in dogs with degenerative myelopathy, a canine model of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Summary: Loss of Ranbp2 in spinal motoneurons drives ALS syndromes in mice and Ranbp2 functions in nucleocytoplasmic trafficking, proteostasis and chemokine signaling uncover novel therapeutic targets and mechanisms for motoneuron disease.

Summary: The receptor tyrosine kinase Tyro3 improves weight and survival in the anorexia mouse model, and is one of the few factors known to sustain appetite regulatory circuitry.

Summary: ATP released by degenerating neurons participates in neuron-Schwann cell communication in an in vitro model of Miller Fisher syndrome and activates Schwann cell pro-regenerative properties.

Summary:Ikbkap is essential for normal CNS development, neuronal survival and behavior, adding to our understanding of the role of the Elongator complex in the mammalian CNS.

Summary: Complexin 1 is a prodromal biomarker and risk factor for REM sleep behavior disorder and PARK4-associated Parkinson's disease.

Summary: Genetic mutations linked to Parkinson's disease lead to stage-specific deregulation of the nucleolus, a major integrator of the cellular stress response.

Summary: A novel endogenous disease mechanism in cells from ALS patients after NCS-induced DNA damage.

Summary: Grb2 has a unique role in protecting the cytoskeletal architecture in AD-like conditions, offering a potential new strategy for controlling neurodegeneration.

Summary:In vitro systems derived from AD mice can be used to investigate the vulnerability of AD neurons to different neurotoxic challenges, including oxygen glucose deprivation.
