Reducing HDAC3 Protein Levels Can Stop Cognitive Decline Associated with Huntington’s Disease, Study Says

Jul 27, 2017 11:16 am | Joana Fernandes, PhD

 

Huntington's disease researchTherapies aimed at reducing the levels of a protein called HDAC3 may improve cognitive decline in Huntington’s disease, according to the results of a new study. The study titled, “A selective inhibitor of histone deacetylase 3 prevents cognitive deficits and suppresses striatal CAG repeat expansions in Huntington’s disease mice,” was published in the journal Scientific […]

AMPA glutamate receptorA snapshot of a key brain receptor in action might advance the understanding of disease processes in Huntington’s disease and allow scientists to identify new treatments, researchers at Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) hope. Their work, published in the journal Nature, describes how the neurotransmitter glutamate binds to one of its receptors, called AMPA, in […]
