Abstract:
TDP-43 is an RNA-binding protein with particular predilection for UG repeats that was shown to regulate transcription, to mediate mRNA stability and to inhibit splicing in the CFTR and Apo All genes.Recently, TDP-43 has been found to be the major disease protein in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and Fronto-temporal Lobar dementia [ftld]. Objective of this thesis was to characterize the function of TDP-43 with in-vitro and in vivostudies.
