Mitochondria in Huntington's disease

Maria Damiano, Laurie Galvan, Nicole Déglon, Emmanuel Brouillet
2010 Biochimica et Biophysica Acta - Molecular Basis of Disease  
The disease is caused by an abnormal expansion of a CAG repeat located in exon 1 of the gene encoding the huntingtin protein (Htt) that confers a toxic function to the protein.  ...  Striatal neurons may be particularly vulnerable to these defects. One hypothesis is that neurotransmission systems such as dopamine and glutamate exacerbate mitochondrial defects in the striatum.  ...  In vivo experiments also support a role for dopamine and its receptors in HD pathogenesis: DAT (dopamine transporter) knock-out (KO) mice crossed with a knock-in transgenic mouse model of HD showed enhanced  ...
