New Approaches for Parkinson’s Disease Treatment

Abstract 1. Dysfunctional parkin due to mutations or post-translational modifications contributes to dopaminergic neurodegeneration in Parkinson’s disease (PD). Overexpression of parkin provides protection against cellular stresses and prevents dopamine cell loss in several PD animal models. 2. IDUNA (RNF146) is […]

Olfactory Receptors and the Regulation of Renal Function

Abstract Olfactory receptors (ORs) are 7-transmembrane G-protein coupled receptors which, when expressed in the olfactory epithelium, play a pivotal role in the sense of smell.  However, recent studies have highlighted important roles played by ORs in a variety of other […]

Li, Na Rechargeable Batteries Using an SO2-based Inorganic Electrolyte

Abstract Extensive research efforts have been devoted to the development of alternative battery chemistry to replace the current technology of lithium-ion batteries(LIBs). Here, we demonstrate that the [Li, Na]-SO2 battery chemistry, already established 30 years ago, has considerable potential to […]
