Prof. Douglas J. Epstein, Ph.D.- Cochlear supporting cells require GAS2 for cytoskeletal architecture and hearing
Joint Biomed@TAU Research Hub Event
Developmental Biology, Membrane Communication & Remodelling, and Neurodevelopmental Disorders invites you to a lecture by:

Cochlear supporting cells require GAS2 for cytoskeletal architecture and hearing
Monday June 14 at 15:00
Join us virtually to hear about Prof. Epstein’s latest paper in Developmental Cell
Chen et al. describe how mutations in GAS2, encoding a microtubule associated protein, cause hearing loss in mice and humans. They show that microtubule bundle integrity is compromised in cochlear supporting cells from Gas2 mutants, causing defects in the amplification and propagation of sound waves in the cochlea.
