Neurodegeneration in Huntington’s Linked to Protein Complex Crucial for Developing Brain

Aug 19, 2016 07:00 am | Magdalena Kegel

 

Huntington’s and neurodegenerationResearchers at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York have discovered that a protein complex crucial for normal brain development might also be necessary in the adult brain — silencing genes that drive neurodegeneration in Huntington’s disease. The study, “Polycomb repressive complex 2 (PRC2) silences genes responsible for neurodegeneration,” published recently in the journal […]

brain scanScientists at the Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging at Massachusetts General Hospital were able — for the first time — to track epigenetic factors, or non-genetic influences on gene activity, linked to Huntington’s disease in the brains of living humans. The study, “Insights into neuroepigenetics through human histone deacetylase PET imaging,” published in the journal Science Translational Medicine, […]
