The so-called NKCC1 protein is found throughout the human body where it has important functions in organs that process fluids or perform neurotransmission. A team of Danish researchers including researchers from DANDRITE has now determined a three-dimensional atomic structure of the NKCC1 protein, which supports future work to identify novel compounds that interfere with NKCC1 function.
Through intense research over the past 20 years, it has now definitively been established that a mutation in a fourth gene, namely SORL1, can directly cause the widespread dementia disorder. If this gene is defective, the person carrying the genetic defect will develop Alzheimer’s. Hear DANDRITE affiliated Ass. Prof. in Biomedicine, Olav Andersen, explain the new findings in this video.

DANDRITE Group Leader, Taro Kitazawa recently catched up with Gretchen Repasky from Nordic EMBL for their “Behind the Science'' profile series, to talk about his research and the search for epigenetic and transcriptional mechanisms that underlie neuroplasticity.
Franziska is working in the lab of Gilles Vanwalleghem with zebrafish to get a better
understanding of the gut-brain axis, especially in immunology. She will be exploring
which genes and molecular pathways are responsible for or involved in different
pathogenesis of diseases linked to the gut microbiota composition. Furthermore, Franziska will
study the mobilization of macrophages to compare inflammation levels between wild-type and germ-free larvae, as well as zebrafish larvae infected with Vibrio cholerae.

The Nordic EMBL Partnership was awarded funding from NordForsk as part of its Partnership Hub Infrastructure call. The funding is designed to help increase knowledge transfer and interactions across the Nordic EMBL Partnership.
The Nordic EMBL Partnership for Molecular Medicine, where DANDRITE is the Danish node, is one of EMBL's partnerships, aiming to leverage the EMBL model together with the strengths of the partners, to create an interlinked system of excellent institutions that enhance molecular life science in Europe and the world.
