Abnormalities in a Protein Affecting How Nerve Cells Change Shape May Be Linked to Huntington’s Disease
April 3, 2019 - Amsterdam, NL – Since 1993, when the gene that causes Huntington's disease (HD) was identified, there has been intense focus on understanding how this genetic mutation causes the disease's severe progressive neural deterioration. In a new study published in the Journal of Huntington's Disease, investigators have discovered that the HD mutation may alter the interactions of Huntingtin, the large protein produced by the HD gene, with Rac1, a protein that directs changes in cell shape. In HD, this interaction may result in abnormalities in the pathway controlling neural cell shape and dendritic growth, which can affect how well nerve cells communicate with one another.April 3, 2019
March 26, 2019 - Lexington, KY, USA – It's an irrefutable fact that smoking is bad for you.
