Lighthouse contributing editor LaVonne Goodman reports on a meeting at CHDI.
MAPK/ERK and SAPK/JNK pathways are affected by mutant huntingtin. Researchers were able to manipulate the pathways to prevent problems caused by mutant huntingtin in the cellular model they used.
Surprising findings about huntingtin aggregation...
Mutant huntingtin accumulates in glial nuclei in HD brains and decreases the expression of glutamate transporters.
Researchers are using mathematical modeling to gain new insights about Huntington's Disease.
FGF-2 promotes neurogenesis and increases survival time in the HD mouse.
BDNF causes neurogenesis in the striatum in primates.
Two members of the HDLighthouse editorial staff were guests at the 2005 Huntington Study Group meeting.
Dr. Elena Cattaneo and colleagues have discovered another HD pathology.
A better understanding of heat shock proteins may lead to HD treatments.
