Huntington's and songbirdsNew Huntington’s research sheds light on the link between the effects of the disease’s underlying mutation on brain structure and function, and consequent behavior anomalies. Studying the gene mutation’s expression in a precise brain area of songbirds, scientists observed how the mutation affects specific neurons and changes behavior, findings that could lead to the identification of a new therapeutic […]

Huntington’s Disease-causing Gene Safely Deleted from Brains of Adult Mice

mice and Huntington's diseaseEmory University researchers deleted the Huntington’s disease-causing protein, huntingtin, in the brains of adult mice, and observed that such deletion was safe in adults though not in relatively newborn mice. The study, “Ablation of huntingtin in adult neurons is nondeleterious but its depletion in young mice causes acute pancreatitis” and published in PNAS, appears to  present a new […]
