High impact information on torp4a

  • Down-regulation of torp4a, encoding the Drosophila homologue of torsinA, results in increased neuronal degeneration [1].
  • Our findings implicate the Drosophila torsin, torp4a, to function with molecules consistent with already predicted roles in the endoplasmic reticulum/nuclear envelope compartment, and have identified potential new interactions with AP-3 like components [1].
