Amyloid Beta Nano Particle used to Sensitize Dendritic Cells as a Therapeutic Vaccine against Alzheimer's disease

Poster

This project researches the use of immunotherapy to combat Alzheimer's disease. This is achieved by exposing dendritic cells, antigen presenting cells, to amyloid beta in order to sensitize the cell. The results indicate that a mutant form of amyloid beta was successful in producing anti-amyloid-beta antibodies and in improving behavior in the mice.

Neuronal Mislocalization of Mutant DHHC9 in X-Linked Intellectual DIsability

Poster

DHHC9 is a protein acyltransferase (PAT) that adds a palmitate to specific protein substrates. In the neuron, palmitoylation of various proteins by DHHC9 facilitates proper neuronal function. Recently, a DHHC9 nonsense mutation (R298*), resulting in a truncation of the last 67 amino acids of the protein, has been associated with X-Linked Intellectual Disability (XLID). Here, we compare neuronal localization of the wild-type (WT) and R298* mutant DHHC9.
