Congratulations to Dr. Yatin Vyas (Hematology/Oncology) on his recent publication in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology on Wiskott Aldrich Syndrome.
Wen KK, Han SS, Vyas YM. Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein senses irradiation-induced DNA damage to coordinate the cell-protective Golgi dispersal response in human T and B lymphocytes. J Allergy Clin Immunol. 2019 Oct 8. pii: S0091-6749(19)31263-1. doi: 10.1016/j.jaci.2019.09.026. [Epub ahead of print].
The study identifies WASp as a novel effector of nucleus-to-Golgi, cell-survival pathway triggered by IR-induced DNA damage in the cells of the hematolymphoid lineage, and proposes impaired GDR as a new etiology in the development of a “radiosensitive” form of immune dysregulation in WAS
