Summary: Brehme and Voisine perform a comprehensive literature survey that highlights the power of model systems to unveil key chaperone modifiers of proteotoxicity with potential therapeutic implications.


Editors' choice:In vivo validation of a potent DYRK1A inhibitor, with proven clinical safety, using Down-syndrome- and Alzheimer's-disease-like models.

Summary: Tissue-specific deletion of transcription factor AP-2β in the neural-crest-derived periocular mesenchyme generates a novel model of anterior segment dysgenesis and early onset glaucoma in mice.

Summary: We identify the YBR/EiJ mouse strain as a new model of high intraocular pressure and glaucoma, and also identify genetic loci that contribute to this glaucoma.

Summary: Zebrafish with an inactivating mutation in the vhl gene can be used as a model of early stage clear cell renal cell carcinoma, with applications for genetic studies and drug screens.

Summary: Combining a disruption in nuclear structure with a lupus-prone genetic background induces autoimmunity, suggesting that nuclear alterations trigger the disease in genetically susceptible individuals.

Summary: A miRNA screening conducted in olfactory stem cells from patients links the neuron-specific splicing factor NOVA1 to neurodegeneration in familial dysautonomia.
