    • Adult neural stem cells in distinct microdomains generate previously unknown interneuron types 

      Merkle, Florian T.; Fuentealba, Luis C.; Sanders, Timothy A.; Magno, Lorenza; Kessaris, Nicoletta; Alvarez-Buylla, Arturo (2014)
      Throughout life, neural stem cells (NSCs) in different domains of the ventricular-subventricular zone (V-SVZ) of the adult rodent brain generate several subtypes of interneurons that regulate the function of the olfactory ...
    • Human pluripotent stem cells recurrently acquire and expand dominant negative P53 mutations 

      Merkle, Florian Tobias; Ghosh, Sulagna; Kamitaki, Nolan; Mitchell, Jana Marie; Avior, Yishai; Mello, Curtis Jay; Kashin, Seva; Mekhoubad, Shila; Ilic, Dusko; Sweetnam, Maura Charlton; Saphier Belfer, Genevieve C; Handsaker, Robert E; Genovese, Giulio; Bar, Shiran; Benvenisty, Nissim; McCarroll, Steven A.; Eggan, Kevin Carl (Springer Nature, 2017)
      Background: Depressive disorders are the second-leading cause of global disability, and an area of increasing focus in international health efforts. We describe a community health worker (CHW) program rolled out in a ...
    • The mouse C9ORF72 ortholog is enriched in neurons known to degenerate in ALS and FTD 

      Suzuki, Naoki; Maroof, Asif; Merkle, Florian T; Koszka, Kathryn; Intoh, Atsushi; Armstrong, Ian; Moccia, Rob; Davis-Dusenbery, Brandi N; Eggan, Kevin (2014)
      Using transgenic animals harboring a targeted LacZ insertion, we studied the expression pattern of the C9ORF72 mouse ortholog. Unlike most genes mutated in ALS, which are ubiquitously expressed, the C9ORF72-ortholog was ...
    • Pathways Disrupted in Human ALS Motor Neurons Identified through Genetic Correction of Mutant SOD1 

      Kiskinis, Evangelos; Sandoe, Jackson L; Williams, Lauren N.; Boulting, Gabriella Lutz; Moccia, Robert; Wainger, Brian Jason; Han, Steve Sang-woo; Peng, Theodore; Thams, Sebastian; Mikkilineni, Shravani; Mellin, Cassidy; Merkle, Florian Tobias; Davis-Dusenbery, B; Ziller, Michael Johannes; Oakley, Derek Hayden; Ichida, Justin; Di Costanzo, Stefania; Atwater, Nick; Maeder, M; Goodwin, Marcus; Nemesh, James; Handsaker, Robert E; Paull, Daniel; Noggle, Scott; McCarroll, Steven A.; Joung, Jae Keith; Woolf, Carl; Brown, Robert H; Eggan, Kevin Carl (Elsevier BV, 2014)
      Direct electrical recording and stimulation of neural activity using micro-fabricated silicon and metal micro-wire probes have contributed extensively to basic neuroscience and therapeutic applications; however, the ...
