About Us - Edwin Oh Lab
In 2017, Dr. Oh's lab moved from Duke University in North Carolina to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to focus on genetic and neurological disorders in Southern Nevada.
Abstract Minimotifs are modular contiguous peptide sequences in proteins that are important for posttranslational modifications, binding to other molecules, and trafficking to specific subcellular compartments. Some molecular functions of proteins in cellular pathways can be predicted from minimotif consensus sequences identified through experimentation. While a role for minimotifs in regulating signal transduction and gene regulation … Continue reading
Abstract Over 100 genetic loci harbor schizophrenia-associated variants, yet how these variants confer liability is uncertain. The CommonMind Consortium sequenced RNA from dorsolateral prefrontal cortex of people with schizophrenia (N = 258) and control subjects (N = 279), creating a resource of gene expression and its genetic regulation. Using this resource, ∼20% of schizophrenia loci … Continue reading
9 Sep 2015 – Neuroanatomical and behavioral deficits in mice haploinsufficient for Pericentriolar material 1 (Pcm1).
Abstract The pericentriolar material (PCM) is composed of proteins responsible for microtubule nucleation/anchoring at the centrosome, some of which have been associated with genetic susceptibility to schizophrenia. Here, we show that mice haploinsufficient for Pericentriolar material 1 (Pcm1(+/-)), which encodes a component of the PCM found to bear rare loss of function mutations in patients … Continue reading
