LINEE DI RICERCA

1) Search for genetic factors involved in susceptibility to autoimmune diseases ( SLE, Multiple Sclerosis, Celiac Disease) This is performed by association studies with polymorphisms (SNPs or microsatellites) in candidate genes or candidate genomic regions utilising high throughput genotyping techniques.
2) Search for genetic factors involved in susceptibility to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
ALS patients are first tested for the presence of mutations in the well known susceptibility gene SOD1. Associated sequence variations are then searched in a series of candidate genes. Angiogenin, peripherin and VEGF are being tested to date.
3) Search for DNA sequence variations responsible for Growth Hormone Deficiency (GHD).
Patients with isolated GH (IGHD) or compound pituitary hormone deficiency (CPHD) are analysed for mutations in previously reported (GH1, GHRHR, HESX1, PIT1, PROP1, LHX4) or in new candidate genes. A functional analysis is performed for all the detected mutations utilising a rat pituitary cell line.
4) Role of integrins in -amyloid neurotoxicity : relevance for Alzheimer’s disease and for the protective effects of estrogen.
The possible relationship between amyloid ß-peptide ( ßAP) induced apoptosis and integrin expession is analysed in two neuroblastoma cell lines, SK-N-BE and SK-N-SY5Y, previously differentiated by chronic exposure to retinoc acid. The neuroprotective role of 17ß-estradiol and of other estrogen molecules (17a-estradiol, estriol, estrone) and the possible changes in basal or ßAP modified integrin expression are also evaluated. Finally, the possible involvement of caspase 8 and/or other upstream caspases is studied, in order to clarify the sequence of events leading to the protective action of estrogen in neuronal cells
