mCAR (mouse constitutive androstane receptor; NR1I3) controls the expression of cytochrome P450 as well as other enzymes involved in drug and steroid metabolism. The high basal activity of mCAR can be modulated by inhibitory steroids related to androstenol and by activating xenobiotic chemicals such as 1,4-bis-[2-(3,5-dichloropyridyloxy)]benzene and(More)
Huntington's disease (HD) is a neurodegenerative disorder caused by a CAG-repeat expansion in the huntingtin (IT15) gene. The striatum is one of the regions most affected by neurodegeneration, resulting in the loss of the medium-sized spiny neurons. Traditionally, the large cholinergic striatal interneurons are believed to be spared. Recent studies(More)
