  • Proteins with these abnormally long tracts of glutamines are highly susceptible to misfolding and aggregation.

  • In this strain, a truncated form of the human MJD/SCA3 protein, containing 78 glutamines (MJDtrQ78), is expressed under the control of the UAS promoter

    PLoS Biology: New Articles

  • To find out if HSF1A could initiate an HSF1 response in mammalian neurons, the researchers added it to an in vitro culture of rat neuronal precursor cells that expressed a mutant human huntingtin gene containing an expanded tract of glutamines.

  • Growth hormones such as glycine, glutamines and amino acids can help you grow taller.

    The Global Perspective

  • Most people have a huntingtin protein whose polyglutamine segment contains 20 or so glutamines, and even a polyglutamine with as many as 35 repeats may not cause Huntington's symptoms.

    EurekAlert! - Breaking News

  • It is known that while most people have a huntingtin protein whose polyglutamine segment contains 20 to 35 glutamines, patients with Huntington's have a block of 40 repeats or more.

    GEN News Highlights

  • Normal individuals have fewer than 27 repeats, hence fewer than 27 glutamines in the relevant peptide.

  • (htt) containing 74 glutamines fused to green fluorescent protein (GFP) (httQ74-GFP) is expressed in rat phaeochromocytoma (PC12) cells, a rat neuronal precursor cell line, via a doxycycline-inducible promoter.

  • Drosophila, is fruitfully being used to determine how microRNAs contribute to the pathology of Huntington's disease and spinocerebellar ataxia - both conditions resulting from mutant proteins containing an abnormal number of glutamines (
