Niemann-Pick disease, type C2

This gene encodes a protein containing a lipid recognition domain. The encoded protein may function in regulating the transport of cholesterol through the late endosomal/lysosomal system. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Niemann-Pick disease, type C2 and frontal lobe atrophy. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Nuttall et al., Ann Arbor, United States. In Biophys J, Feb 2016
Three approaches were compared: 1) adeno-associated virus-mediated in utero transfer of the ChR-2 gene into the developing murine otocyst, 2) expression of ChR-2(H134R) in an auditory cell line (HEI-OC1), and 3) expression of ChR-2 in the OHCs of a mouse line carrying a ChR-2 conditional allele.

UNASSIGNED: The cyclization of oxidosqualene to lanosterol, catalyzed by the enzyme oxidosqualene cyclase (OSC), goes through a number of carbocationic high energy intermediates (HEI), and mimicking these intermediates is a promising approach for the development of OSC inhibitors.
