TRiC proteinUsing a new Huntington’s disease model featuring two types of disease affected neurons grown together in the lab, researchers showed that introducing a specific protein part reduced mutant huntingtin, as well as other molecular effects linked to the disease. Findings presented in the study titled “TRiC subunits enhance BDNF axonal transport and rescue striatal atrophy in […]

Inflammatory Processes in Huntington’s: Researchers Seek to Understand Influence on Disease

Sep 06, 2016 08:32 am | Magdalena Kegel

 

Inflammatory processes in Huntington'sInflammatory processes in both the brain and the rest of the body are likely an integral part of Huntington’s disease, according to a review of published data on the topic. The report, “Neuroimmunology of Huntington’s Disease: Revisiting Evidence from Human Studies,” published in the journal Mediators of Inflammation, however, underscores the fact that researchers still […]
