Extrinsic mechanisms regulate the GPR17 receptor during oligodendrocyte precursor cell maturation:  implications for the development of new remyelinating strategies

During oligodendrocyte precursor cell differentiation, defective control of the membrane receptor GPR17 has been suggested to block cell maturation and impair remyelination under demyelinating conditions.

Here, we show that the ubiquitin ligase Mdm2, known to be involved in ubiquitination/degradation of p53, regulates GPR17 responses at the cell membrane by intertwining mTOR with G-protein receptor kinase 2.

Seminars Room, NICO

27 february 2020


University of Turin, Italy   
The Workshop is aimed at PhD students and young Postdocs with the goal to promote a thorough understanding of the functions of glial cells in health and disease. The program includes lectures on the newest conceptual advancements and methodological approaches in the study of glial cells in synaptic functions, development and CNS diseases.
