Gene RIF (8)

26149686 showed that CDNF was able to protect dopaminergic neurons against injury caused by alpha-synuclein oligomers. This advises its use against physiological damages caused by alpha-synuclein oligomers
25975173 Results suggest that CDNF treatment selectively enhances long-term memory consolidation
25511018 Expression of CDNF in the substantia nigra has an anti-inflammatory effect on experimental Parkinson's disease.
21320571 Although no CDNF mutations are found in early-onset Parkinson's disease patient samples, a trend towards increased risk for Parkinson's in carriers of the C allele of rs7094179 single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) is found.
19429035 Study suggests that there is no association between variants in the CDNF gene and cocaine dependence.
19429035 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19258449 structures of MANF and CDNF were solved; structure explains why MANF and CDNF are bifunctional; neurotrophic activity may reside in the N-terminal domain and ER stress response in the C-terminal domain
17611540 expressed in several tissues; might be beneficial for the treatment of Parkinson's disease
