New Treatments for Epilepsy: MicroRNA therapeutics and the Future

Online - 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

David Henshall, PhD
Professor of Physiology and Medical Physics
University of Medicine and Health Sciences
Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland

Abstract:
Epilepsy is a common, serious brain disease characterized by unprovoked seizures. Although we have more than 20 different anti-seizure drugs, around one third of patients are refractory to these. Moreover, these medicines fail to impact on the underlying pathophysiology and we have no treatments that can prevent epilepsy in at-risk individuals. MicroRNAs are short noncoding RNAs that perform important roles in the regulation of the gene expression landscape in the brain. Research has shown that various microRNAs undergo changes in expression during the development of epilepsy in experimental models and microRNA levels are altered in brain tissue from drug-resistant epilepsy patients. Designed antisense inhibitors of microRNAs termed antagomirs have been used to explore causal roles for several microRNAs in epilepsy. Results indicate both anti-seizure and even disease-modifying effects, potentially offering a new approach to the treatment of epilepsy. In this presentation I will provide an introduction to the unmet therapeutic needs in epilepsy and why microRNAs offer promise as new targets for seizure control. I will then give an overview of some of our latest research, including newly identified microRNA targets in epilepsy and an update on our preclinical development pipeline with industry partners and the challenges of translation to the clinic.

M-I Dept. Virtual Seminar - Innate Immune Response to Virus Infection

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Title: Innate Immune Response to Virus Infection

Speaker: Ganes Sen, PhD / Cleveland Clinic

Host: Dr. Laimonis Laimins

Topic:

In vertebrates, virus infection of cells triggers the synthesis of interferons (IFN), which are secreted to act upon neighboring uninfected cells and protect them by inducing hundreds of antiviral proteins. Our research interests are in understanding how IFN synthesis is regulated and how IFN-stimulated genes (ISG) prevent virus replication. For mounting an innate immune response, cells sense virus infection primarily through the recognition of viral nucleic acids by various intracellular pattern recognition receptors such as TLRs, cGAS-STING and RLRs. We study the biochemistry of their signaling pathways that lead to IFN induction. Our studies on the antiviral actions of ISGs are currently focused on the IFIT family. By generating different IFIT knock-out mouse lines, we demonstrated virus-specific and cell-type specific antiviral actions of the IFIT proteins.

Novel Role for Ion Conducting Proteins in the Prenatal Brain and Disease

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Richard S. Smith, PhD
Instructor
Harvard Medical School, Department of Pediatrics
Post-Doctoral Research Fellow
Boston Children's Hospital, Division of Genetics and Genomics
Howard Hughes Medical Institute

Abstract:
Identifying key genes involved in human brain development provides novel insights into biological processes underlying the evolution of the human neocortex as well as the treatment of brain diseases. During prenatal brain development, ion channels are ubiquitous across several cell types, including progenitor cells and migrating neurons but their function has not been clear. Using electrophysiological and modern genetic approaches, we identified contributions of ion conducting proteins to human cerebral cortex development, including recent work highlighting the functional role for a sodium channel subtype (NaV1.3) and a sodium/potassium ATPase pump (Alpha 3) in human neocortical folding. These genetic students and recent in utero animal modeling work suggest that precise control of ionic flux (calcium, sodium, and potassium) contributes to in utero developmental processes such as neural proliferation, migration, and differentiation. Moreover, our ongoing work on novel therapeutic interventions (e.g. anti-sense oligonucleotide therapies) for modulating ion channel expression offers an optimistic future for channelopathy patients across a spectrum of neurodevelopmental disorders.

"Cognitive Reserve and Resilience in Aging: What Can We Learn from Animal Models? "

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

The Department of Physiology welcomes Dr. Peter Rapp, Senior Investigator & Deputy Lab Chief, with NIH.

Abstract

The nature and severity of brain and cognitive aging vary tremendously across individuals. Although attention has focused predominantly on decline and deterioration as the core dynamics of late life, growing interest centers on the substrates of preserved function. Are these fortunate outcomes simply a consequence of staying young, do they reflect compensation for the deleterious effects of aging, or are other mechanisms at play? Clinical investigations have been illuminating, but it can be challenging to disentangle the influence of different life course exposures, preclinical neurodegenerative disease processes, and other variables. Our research utilizes animal models of naturally occurring neurocognitive aging that prominently feature increased individual differences, mirroring humans, while allowing exacting experimental control. The findings suggest that, across levels of analysis from expression of molecular markers of plasticity to neural network organization and cognitive strategy selection, positive outcomes in aging are supported by adaptive modifications, in part distinct from the substrates that mediate normal youthful function. Notably, these individual differences in neurocognitive aging appear to influence the response to potential interventions, highlighting the importance of personalized approaches. The encouraging perspective from this area of work is that, alongside a focus on finding ways to slow the fundamental rate of aging, and the critical need for new, effective treatments for neurodegenerative disease, effort might be profitably aimed at testing strategies to promote neuroadaptive trajectories of growing older. An open resource of longitudinal data and biospecimens for animal research on these issues is in development.

Central Circuits of Pain, Stress and Addiction - Frank Porreca, PhD

Online - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Frank Porreca, PhD
Professor of Pharmacology and Anesthesiology
University of Arizona - Tucson
Senior Consultant, Department of Collaborative Research
Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, Arizona


This lecture will focus on the contributions of brain opioid circuits in acute and chronic pain with relevance to mechanisms of opioid addiction. Data will be presented to show that the aversive qualities of pain promote motivation to seek relief that can be assessed through learned behaviors. The opposing role of endogenous opioids acting at mu and kappa opioid receptors in promoting positive and negative reinforcement in three main circuits relevant to both pain and addiction will be highlighted and potential therapeutic opportunities currently in development will be presented.


Dr. Frank Porreca
is Professor of Pharmacology and Anesthesiology at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. He also holds an appointment as a Senior Consultant in the Department of Collaborative Research at Mayo Clinic, Scottsdale, Arizona.

He trained in Biomedical Engineering at Drexel University in Pharmacology at Temple University in Philadelphia.

Dr. Porreca s research focuses on understanding circuits and mechanisms promoting chronic pain and addiction. He has explored the impact of pain on motivation and reward as a basis for enhancing translation. Several themes have been emphasized including (a) the role of descending modulatory circuits in chronic pain states; (b) the mechanisms by which opioids and stress engage these circuits and (c) the discovery of molecules that can modulate these circuits through novel mechanisms. His recent work has focused on sexually dimorphic mechanisms of pain. He has published more than 500 peer reviewed papers.

Dr. Porreca has been honored by the International Association for the Study of Pain with the Ronald Melzack Award, by the American Pain Society with the F.W. Kerr Award, the British Pain Society with the Patrick Wall Award, the Canadian Pain Society with the Mary Ellen Jeans Award and the Eastern Pain Society with the John J. Bonica Award. He has served in Editorial roles for numerous journals and is the Founder and Scientific Director of the Spring Pain Research Conference and the Pain Mechanisms and Therapeutics Conference.

Viral Hijacking of Host Motor Proteins to Promote Nuclear Entry

Speaker - Chelsey Spriggs,PhD

Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, University of Michigan Medical School, Tsai Lab

During entry, most DNA viruses must navigate the crowded cellular environment to reach the nucleus where transcription and replication of the viral genome occur. How polyomavirus (PyV), a small, DNA tumor virus, accomplishes this essential step in infection is unclear. Here, I will describe an unexpected and novel role for host motor proteins in this process and the next big questions in the field.

Novel GABA- and Ornithine Aminotransferase Inactivators and Potential New Treatments for Epilepsy, Addiction, Neuropathic Pain, and Hepatocellular Carcinoma

No Location - 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Patrick G. Ryan/Aon Professor
Department of Chemistry

Abstract: An imbalance in the levels of the inhibitory neurotransmitter g-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and the excitatory neurotransmitter L-glutamate can lead to convulsions. Inhibition of g-aminobutyric acid aminotransferase (GABA-AT), the enzyme responsible for the degradation of GABA, increases brain GABA levels, which has been shown to produce an anticonvulsant effect. Reduced brain GABA concentration also is a feature of neuropathic pain. A sharp rise in dopamine release is associated with a variety of addictive behaviors. This dopamine release can be attenuated by an increase in GABA; therefore, inactivation of GABA-AT also has an effect on addictive behavior. Inactivation of a related enzyme, ornithine aminotransferase (OAT) in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) has been shown to slow the growth of this cancer. In this lecture the design and mechanism of some of our GABA-AT inactivators will be discussed and how these compounds led to the design and discovery of CPP-115 and OV329, potent inactivators of GABA-AT, which have been found to have excellent pharmacokinetic and pharmacological properties for the potential treatment of epilepsy, neuropathic pain, and addiction. An analog related to CPP-115 was identified that does not inactivate GABA-AT but is a potent inactivator of OAT. Enzyme inactivator design and mechanism studies will be discussed, as well as in vitro and in vivo efficacy and pharmacokinetic results, toxicology studies, and a clinical trial with CPP-115
