Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Huntington's disease-like 2 (HDL2) is a rare, autosomal dominant, adult-onset, progressive neurodegenerative disorder, genetically, clinically, and pathologically nearly indistinguishable from Huntington's disease (HD). HDL2 is caused by a trinucleotide repeat expansion detectable by genetic testing. Understanding HDL2 may provide clues to the pathogenesis of HD and other neurodegenerative diseases.
