Unraveling the molecular landscape of Ataxia Telangiectasia: Insights into Neuroinflammation, immune dysfunction, and potential therapeutic target.

BACKGROUND: Ataxia Telangiectasia (AT) is a genetic disorder characterized by compromised DNA repair, cerebellar degeneration, and immune dysfunction. Understanding the molecular mechanisms driving AT pathology is crucial for developing targeted therapies.

METHODS: In this study, we conducted a comprehensive analysis to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying AT pathology. Using publicly available RNA-seq datasets comparing control and AT samples, we employed in silico transcriptomics to identify potential genes and pathways. We performed differential gene expression analysis with DESeq2 to reveal dysregulated genes associated with AT. Additionally, we constructed a Protein-Protein Interaction (PPI) network to explore the interactions between proteins implicated in AT.

RESULTS: The network analysis identified hub genes, including TYROBP and PCP2, crucial in immune regulation and cerebellar function, respectively. Furthermore, pathway enrichment analysis unveiled dysregulated pathways linked to AT pathology, providing insights into disease progression.

CONCLUSION: Our integrated approach offers a holistic understanding of the complex molecular landscape of AT and identifies potential targets for therapeutic intervention. By combining transcriptomic analysis with network-based methods, we provide valuable insights into the underlying mechanisms of AT pathogenesis.
