Beclin 2-Functionalized Therapies for Treatment of Neurodegenerative Disease and Cancer
This invention identified that Beclin 2 functions as a negative regulator of the ERK1/2 signaling, NF-κB signaling, and inflammasome activation. Furthermore, these studies demonstrated that Beclin 2 targets key signalling kinases for degradation through an ATG9A-dependent autophagic pathway. These new findings have uncovered an important role...

A DNAzyme that targets the CAG repeat RNA in polyglutamine diseases
The invention is a synthetic single-stranded DNA molecule that functions as a specific RNA-cleaving DNA enzyme (or DNAzyme) as a potential therapeutic for the treatment of polyglutamine diseases. The binding arms of this synthetic DNAzyme are complementary to the CAG repeats found in the pathological expansion of CAG trinucleotide repeats in the translated...

Neural/Glial Cell-Derived Nanoparticles to Restore Neural Function in Alzheimer’s Disease
This invention is an engineered biomimetic nanoparticle (NP) that integrates neural or glial cell membrane proteins into lipid-based nanoparticles (a.k.a. neurosomes). The integration of these neural/glial cell proteins within the NP shell enable precise targeting to treat a variety of neurological disorders resulting from trauma, neurodegeneration,...
