Huntington’s Patients’ Skin Cells Transformed Into Nerve Cells That Mimic Disease Symptoms

Nerve cells that mimic the molecular features of Huntington’s disease have been created from patients’ skin cells, researchers said. The study, “Striatal neurons directly converted from Huntington’s disease patient fibroblasts recapitulate age-associated disease phenotypes,” was published in Nature Neuroscience. These engineered nerve cells exhibit many of the cellular “symptoms” that characterize the disease, like increased DNA […]
