First proof of pharmacology in humans of a novel glucagon receptor antisense drug.
Fasting and postprandial hyperglucagonemia in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients cause excessive hepatic glucose production (HGP), suggesting that attenuation of hepatic glucagon action could be a therapeutic strategy for T2DM. In this study we

Skipping multiple exons of dystrophin transcripts using cocktail antisense oligonucleotides.
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is one of the most common and lethal genetic disorders, with 20,000 children per year born with DMD globally. DMD is caused by mutations in the dystrophin (DMD) gene. Antisense-mediated exon skipping therapy is a pro

The power of using functional fMRI on small rodents to study brain pharmacology and disease.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is an excellent tool to study the effect of pharmacological modulations on brain function in a non-invasive and longitudinal manner. We introduce several blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) fMRI techn

Using both strands: The fundamental nature of antisense transcription.
Non-coding transcription across the antisense strands of genes is an abundant, pervasive process in eukaryotes from yeast to humans, however its biological function remains elusive. Here, we provide commentary on a recent study of ours, which demonst

Novel role for the CRTC2 in lipid homeostasis.
The mTOR pathways involved in the regulation of SREBP-1.

Photoregulating RNA digestion using azobenzene linked dumbbell antisense oligodeoxynucleotides.
Introduction of 4,4'-bis(hydroxymethyl)-azobenzene (azo) to dumbbell hairpin oligonucleotides at the loop position was able to reversibly control the stability of the whole hairpin structure via UV or visible light irradiation. Here, we designed and

Functional expression study of igf2 antisense transcript in mouse.
Insulin-like growth factor antisense gene (Igf2as) expression was investigated in different mouse tissues during development, in differentiating C2C12 cells and in a ΔDMR1-U2 knockout mouse model. The expression levels of Igf2as were high in fetal an

Cell type-specific pharmacology of NMDA receptors using masked MK801.
N-Methyl-D-aspartate receptors (NMDA-Rs) are ion channels that are important for synaptic plasticity, which is involved in learning and drug addiction. We show enzymatic targeting of an NMDA-R antagonist, MK801, to a molecularly defined neuronal popu

Using constellation pharmacology to define comprehensively a somatosensory neuronal subclass.
Change is intrinsic to nervous systems; change is required for learning and conditioning and occurs with disease progression, normal development, and aging. To better understand mammalian nervous systems and effectively treat nervous-system disorders

CRTC2 signaling cascade regulates hepatic BMAL1 protein.
Energy metabolism follows a diurnal pattern responding to the cycles of light and food exposures. Although food availability is a potent synchronizer of peripheral circadian clock in mammals, the underlying mechanism remains elusive. Here, we found t
