      R-flurbiprofen treatment of experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis in mouse models of multiple sclerosis prevented and attenuated relapsing-remitting and primary progressive EAE, suggesting that R-flurbiprofen could restore motor functions and alleviate MS-associated chronic pain in humans.

      N-WASP is required for Amphiphysin-2/BIN1-dependent nuclear positioning and triad organization in skeletal muscle and is involved in the pathophysiology of centronuclear myopathy

      Amphiphysin-2/BIN1 is known to associate with centronuclear myopathy (CNM) and myotonic dystrophy. N-WASP is found downstream of Amphiphysin-2/BIN1 and aberrantly distributed in skeletal muscle of patients. Activation of N-WASP could provide a therapeutic option for CNM.

      ZIPCO, a putative metal ion transporter, is crucial for Plasmodium liver-stage development

      Tejram Sahu, Bertrand Boisson, Céline Lacroix, Emmanuel Bischoff, Quentin Richier, Pauline Formaglio, Sabine Thiberge, Irina Dobrescu, Robert Ménard and Patricia Baldacci

      Article first published online: 25 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.15252/emmm.201403868

      ZIPCO is a novel Plasmodium berghei ZIP family protein, which might be involved in the transport of iron and possibly zinc. Parasites lacking ZIPCO present a normal blood phase but display a major developmental block in the host liver, which can be rescued by iron and zinc supplementation.

      Tumor cell-specific inhibition of MYC function using small molecule inhibitors of the HUWE1 ubiquitin ligase

      Stefanie Peter, Jennyfer Bultinck, Kevin Myant, Laura A Jaenicke, Susanne Walz, Judith Müller, Michael Gmachl, Matthias Treu, Guido Boehmelt, Carsten P Ade, Werner Schmitz, Armin Wiegering, Christoph Otto, Nikita Popov, Owen Sansom, Norbert Kraut and Martin Eilers

      Article first published online: 24 SEP 2014 | DOI: 10.15252/emmm.201403927

      Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

      New highly specific inhibitors of HUWE1 have been identified that can inhibit MYC function in a tumour cell-specific manner, by preventing the HUWE1-mediated block of a repressive complex of MYC with MIZ1 on MYC-activated target genes.
