HDBuzz: Understanding Factors that Influence Somatic Expansion
A group of researchers at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada, recently identified proteins that regulate somatic expansion, the cellular process that causes CAG repeats in an expanded huntingtin gene to grow over time. In their most recent article, the HD Buzz team broke down what somatic expansion, what this research means, and why it could be significant for treating Huntington’s disease.
