Huntington's disease (HD) is an autosomal-dominant neurological disorder caused by expanded CAG repeats in the Huntingtin (Htt) gene, but it is not known how this mutation causes neurodegeneration. Herein, we found that dysfunction of upstream binding factor-1 (UBF-1) is linked to reduced ribosomal DNA (rDNA) transcription in HD. We identified that UBF1(More)

A prospective study that includes 50 women with GD is performed. The pregnant women are divided into 2 groups: Group I (n=30) — pregnant women treated only with a diet; and(More)
Copper accumulation and phosphatase activities of three Aspergillus species resistant to copper were compared to three copper-sensitive Rhizopus species. High level of acid phosphatases and decreased Cu2+-uptake were found with resistant in contrast to sensitive strains. The presence of copper(II) ions in the medium increased the production of acid(More)
