EMBO Reports cover

Like a welcome present for the new job, we got the cover of EMBO Reports thanks to the great project lead by my former mentee Birgit Berger:

Cover: The Parkinson’s disease‐associated receptor GPR37 (Represented by the patient student) is required in the ER for the maturation of the Wnt co‐receptor LRP6. In the absence of GPR37, LRP6 undergoes ER‐associated degradation, represented by a cat, and Wnt signaling is inhibited. From Birgit S Berger, Sergio P Acebron, Jessica Herbst, Stefan Koch, Christof Niehrs: Parkinson’s disease‐associated receptor GPR37 is an ER chaperone for LRP6. For detail, see Scientific Report on page 712. Cover concept by Sergio P Acebron, Birgit S Berger and Christof Niehrs (Artistic rendition by Uta Mackensen)
