This year the ANA will celebrate our 141st Annual Meeting.
The 2016 Annual Meeting will be held at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront.
Her laboratory identified the myotonic dystrophy type 2 and spinocerebellar ataxia type 8 (SCA8) expansion mutations and developed mouse models of these diseases.
In 2006, her group demonstrated the SCA8 expansion produces RNAs in both directions and in 2011 discovered “repeat associated non-AUG (RAN) translation”, a novel form of translation in which expansion mutations express proteins in all three reading frames without the canonical start codon.
Additionally her group showed that RAN proteins accumulate in SCA8 and DM1 patient tissues.
Since that time, her group and other groups have shown RAN proteins also accumulate in C9orf72ALS/FTD and FXTAS. Ranum’s group is now focused on understanding the mechanisms of RAN translation and the impact of RAN proteins in neurological disease.
Many of the wounds were superficial, what authorities describe as “hesitation cuts,” but his left carotid artery had been punctured, causing him to bleed to death in minutes. Ten years later, no one knows who killed a prosecutor in the U. Law-school roommate Reggie Shuford with Jonathan Luna, right, in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn in the mid-1990s.
Luna also had a wound to his head, which he may have suffered when he landed in the creek. The two were among a handful of minority students at the University of North Carolina law school.The blood had seeped through the front seat to the floor in the rear. The Honda’s engine was idling, but there was nothing to indicate the car had been in an accident.Fassnacht looked around the area and found the driver: a man in his late 30s wearing a suit, tie and overcoat lying facedown in the creek. Dozens of stab wounds — 36 in all — punctuated his body. There were cuts to his hands and fingernail marks near his wrists. Ten years later, not everyone is convinced someone did.He treasured his Luther Vandross boxed-set CDs, allowing only his closest pals to borrow them.He was proud of the diversity of his friends at law school.Toward the end of his first year at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, he found out his father had cancer.
