Misfolding of proteins containing abnormal expansions of polyglutamine (polyQ) repeats is associated with cytotoxicity in several neurodegenerative disorders, including Huntington's disease. Recently, the eukaryotic chaperonin TRiC hetero-oligomeric complex has been shown to play an important role in protecting cells against the accumulation of misfolded(More)
Huntington's disease (HD) is a neurodegenerative disorder caused by an abnormal expansion of polyglutamine repeats in the N-terminal of huntingtin. The amount of aggregate-prone protein is controlled by various mechanisms, including molecular chaperones. Vaccinia-related kinase 2 (VRK2) is known to negatively regulate chaperonin TRiC, and VRK2-facilitated(More)
