Gene editing technique reverses Huntington's in mouse model
Gene editing advancements could produce a future cure for Huntington's disease. The degeneration of brain tissue in Huntington's can also produce psychiatric effects, such as depression, insomnia, and social withdrawal. Huntington's disease is an autosomal dominant disorder, meaning it is caused by the inheritance of just one copy of a defective gene, rather than a pair. Recently, a team from Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, GA, set out to disrupt the mutant HTT gene (mHTT) in a mouse model of Huntington's.
