- Atrophin-1, the dentato-rubral and pallido-luysian atrophy gene product, interacts with ETO/MTG8 in the nuclear matrix and represses transcriptionJ D Wood
Division of Neurobiology, Department of Psychiatry, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21205, USA
J Cell Biol 150:939-48. 2000....
- Polyglutamine pathogenesisC A Ross
Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD 21205, USA
Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 354:1005-11. 1999..Taken together, these data lead towards a model whereby proteolytic processing, nuclear localization and protein aggregation all contribute to pathogenesis...
- Distinct behavioral and neuropathological abnormalities in transgenic mouse models of HD and DRPLAG Schilling
Department of Pathology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland 21205, USA
Neurobiol Dis 8:405-18. 2001..We suggest that the distinct behavioral and neuropathological phenotypes in these mice reflect differences in the way these mutant proteins perturb neuronal function...
- Pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases associated with expanded glutamine repeats: new answers, new questionsC A Ross
Johns Hopkins University, School of Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, Baltimore, Maryland 21205 2196, USA
Prog Brain Res 117:397-419. 1998..As the investigation of the link between these inclusions and cell dysfunction and death continues, it is possible that new avenues for therapeutic intervention will emerge...
- Nuclear accumulation of truncated atrophin-1 fragments in a transgenic mouse model of DRPLAG Schilling
Department of Psychiatry, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland 21205, USA
Neuron 24:275-86. 1999..We conclude that the evolution of neuropathology in DRPLA involves proteolytic processing of mutant atrophin-1 and nuclear accumulation of truncated fragments...
- Atrophin-1, the DRPLA gene product, interacts with two families of WW domain-containing proteinsJ D Wood
Division of Neurobiology, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland, 21205 2196, USA
Mol Cell Neurosci 11:149-60. 1998..These interactors are similar to recently isolated huntingtin-interacting proteins, suggesting possible commonality of function between two proteins responsible for very similar diseases...
- Huntingtin interacts with cystathionine beta-synthaseJ M Boutell
Institute of Medical Genetics, University of Wales College of Medicine, Cardiff CF4 4XN, UK
Hum Mol Genet 7:371-8. 1998..It has been suggested that Huntington's disease involves the action of excitotoxic amino acids and this interaction with CBS may suggest a mechanism for such excitotoxic damage...

Department of Physiology and Cell Biology, College of Medicine, The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio 43210-1218, USA
J Comp Neurol 440:299-310. 2001..The mucosa, submucosal blood vessels, and the circular muscle coat also showed P2X(7) receptor immunoreactivity...

- Pre- and postsynaptic inhibition by nociceptin in guinea pig small intestinal myenteric plexus in vitroS Liu
Department of Physiology and Cell Biology, College of Medicine and Public Health, Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio 43210
Am J Physiol Gastrointest Liver Physiol 281:G237-46. 2001..The results suggest that nociceptin acts both pre- and postsynaptically by activating an ORL(1) receptor that is distinct from typical naloxone-sensitive opioid receptors...

Institute of Medical Genetics, University of Wales College of Medicine, Heath Park, Cardiff, UK
Hum Mol Genet 5:481-7. 1996..These observed differences in the subcellular localisation of huntingtin between mouse and human brain are important in the context of mouse models for HD...
