Cellular and animal models to study the role of Pank2 and C19orf12 genes in NBIA.

Please note that the job is no longer active!

We are now studying the molecular machinery controlling hepcidin production in neuronal cells and the connection with Pank2 and CoA metabolism. Preliminary data obtained in a cellular model show that C19orf12 downregulation induces a similar phenotype thus suggesting a possible functional interaction between the two proteins. To further investigate the physiological role of Pank2 and C19orf12 we started their analysis in Danio rerio. The homologues of both genes have been identified and their expression analysis in different tissues and developmental stages is under way.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
