  1. 1. Energy metabolism as a target for new treatment strategies in Huntington’s disease

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Marie Sjögren; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Huntington´s disease; Energy metabolic alteration; Weight loss; Skeletal muscle; Adipose tissue; R6 2; Ghrelin; Liraglutide;

    Abstract : Huntington´s disease (HD) is a fatal inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by a CAG triplet repeat expansion in the huntingtin (HTT) gene and characterized by cognitive and motoric dysfunctions as well as psychiatric problems. Accumulating evidence, however, suggests altered energy metabolism and a hyper-catabolic state as key features of HD pathology. READ MORE

  2. 2. Brown is the new white: consequences of white adipose tissue alterations in Huntington's disease

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Andy Mccourt; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2016]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Huntington’s disease; weight loss; white adipose tissue; brown adipose tissue; peripheral symptoms; R6 2 mice; UCP1; CREB1; gene expression;

    Abstract : Huntington's disease (HD) is a devastating, inherited neurodegenerative disorder caused by an expanded CAG repeat in the huntingtin gene. Peripheral symptoms, such as skeletal muscle wasting, progressive weight loss, altered body composition and endocrine disturbances exist alongside neurodegeneration. READ MORE

  3. 3. β-cell dysfunction in Huntington's disease

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Karl Bacos; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; metabolism; secretion; Insulin; trafficking; R6 2 mouse; granule; exocytosis; neurodegeneration; huntingtin;

    Abstract : Huntington's disease (HD), a fatal neurodegenerative disorder, is associated with an increased risk of diabetes mellitus. The reason for this is unknown, but considering the functional similarities of neurons and the insulin secreting pancreatic β-cell, pathological mechanisms may be shared by both cell types and account for neuronal as well as endocrine dysfunction.

  4. 4. Effects of dopamine and excitotoxicity in experimental models of Huntington's disease

    University dissertation from Åsa Petersén, WNC, BMC A10, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Åsa Petersén; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurology; excitotoxicity; dopamine; Huntington s disease; striatum; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Huntington's disease (HD) is a hereditary neurodegenerative disorder caused by an expansion of a CAG repeat in the HD gene, that leads to dysfunction and death of striatal neurons. The pathogenetic mechanisms underlying HD are not known, but excitotoxicity and dopamine (DA) have been suggested to play a role. READ MORE

  5. 5. Neuronal Cell Death and Restoration in the Basal Ganglia: Implications for Huntington's and Parkinson's diseases

    University dissertation from Wallenberg Neuroscience Center, BMC, Lund University

    Author : Oskar Hansson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; basal ganglia; Parkinson s disease; Huntington s disease; neural transplantation; restoration; NMDA receptor; excitotoxicity; calcium; caspase; neuronal cell death; apoptosis; transgenic mouse; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Abstract : Huntington's disease (HD) is a hereditary neurodegenerative disorder presenting with chorea, dementia and extensive striatal neuronal death. The mechanism through which the widely expressed mutant huntingtin mediates striatal neurotoxicity is unknown. Excitotoxicity, i.e. READ MORE
