Mouse with Arg1809Cys Nf1 gene mutation
Gutmann, David

— This mouse strain was designed to harbor a specific NF1 patient germline NF1 gene mutation.

Nf1 Optic Glioma Stem Cells
Gutmann, David

— Using a series of Nf1 genetically-engineered mouse strains, researchers isolated low-grade glioma stem cells (CD133+ cells) for in vitro and in vivo brain tumor studies. These lines are authenticated optic glioma stem cells, with the ability to self-renew at limiting dilutions; express stem cell mar…

Neurofibromin/dopamine signaling as a biomarker for cognitive and behavioral problems in children with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1)
Anastasaki, Corina ; Gutmann, David

— Background: Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) is a common neurological condition affecting roughly 1 in every 2,500 individuals. NF1 is associated with a host of clinical presentations, including malignant tumors and cognitive defects ranging from attention deficits, mental retardation, and autism. The…

Tumor treatment for patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1)
Gutmann, David ; Weber, Jason

— Technology Description Scientists at the Washington University Neurofibromatosis Center have developed a patented, first-in-class method for treating neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) with small molecule inhibitors of targets in the mTOR (mammalian target of rapamycin) signaling pathway. NF1 is a rel…
