New paper out about cigarette smoke and GDAP1

In our new paper Cigarette smoke exposure has region-specific effects on GDAP1 expression in mouse hippocampus Nadja, Anna and Stefanie investigated whether cigarette smoke might also affect GDAP1 expression, a gene previously associated with alcohol addiction. Thanks to a fruitful collaboration with the Pharmacology and Toxicology department as well as the department of Experimental Pneumology at the Ruhr-University Bochum, we found that GDAP1 might even be a marker for substance use in general!
