Natural History of Wolfram Syndrome Paper Published

Researchers at IDIBELL and CIBER de Enfermedades Raras (CIBERER), Spain, have recently published in the Genetics in Medicine journal. The research updates the natural history of Wolfram syndrome, provides some clues to understand the different clinical outcomes between patients, and estimates the progression of the disease, by collecting the data from 400 patients published world-wide during the last 15 years.

New Journal Article about Wolfram Syndrome Published

Researchers at the University of Birmingham, UK have recently published findings from their laboratory research in the Human Molecular Genetics journal. The research shows how cells cannot release their cargoes of proteins into the bloodstream. It is because the Wolfram protein has to interact with an enzyme that makes the inside of the protein packets acid, without which they cannot dock with the cell membrane. You can read a simplified summary of the research HERE, or access the abstract HERE.
