Study fingers p53 as an accomplice in Huntington's disease

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: The protein huntingtin leads a molecular conspiracy that destroys brain cells and kills patients with Huntington's disease, and now researchers have captured one of its minions. The new study identifies the cancer-fighting protein p53 as one of huntingtin's gang, a discovery that might help researchers devise treatments for the incurable disease.
