RNA-binding proteins, in particular TDP-43, are key players in neurodegenerative disorders, mainly amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and frontotemporal dementia. We aim to elucidate how TDP-43 dysfunction alters cell metabolism and to identify mechanisms linked to aberrant behavior. We find that RNA binding plays a key role in maintaining TDP-43 homeostasis and in controlling cellular organization, two processes of essential importance to TDP-43 pathology. This research will provide insight into pathogenesis and help develop therapeutic interventions.
