    ..These experiments demonstrated that lack of DJ-1 impairs astrocyte-mediated neuroprotection. ..

    ..Further research should address the precise role of these genes in the metastasising process to the lungs and test if they could be used as targets for future therapies...

    ..This mechanism elucidates how mutations in DJ-1 prompt PD and imply that modulation of DJ-1 may serve as a novel neuroprotective modality. ..

    ..In view of the accumulating evidence on the central role of oxidative stress in MS, and the importance of DJ-1 in oxidative stress management by the CNS, we believe that DJ-1 will be found to have a central role in MS. ..

  9. Haider N, Dusseault J, Rudich A, Larose L. Nck2, an unexpected regulator of adipogenesis. Adipocyte. 2017;6:154-160 pubmed publisher
    ..We propose that Nck2 should be further investigated as a regulator of the reliance of white adipose tissue on hyperplasia versus hypertrophy during adipose tissue expansion, and hence, as a potential novel molecular target in obesity. ..
