Abstract: Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) generated from somatic cells of patients can provide immense opportunities to model human diseases, which may lead to develop novel therapeutics. Huntington's disease (HD) is a devastating neurodegenerative genetic disease, with no available therapeutic options at the moment. We recently reported the characteristics of a HD patient-derived iPSC carrying 72 CAG repeats (HD72-iPSC). In this study, we investigated the in vivo roles of HD72-iPSC in the YAC128 transgenic mice…
