It has been proposed that there is a generalized membrane defect in Huntington's disease (HD) that is expressed in non-neuronal tissue. This membrane abnormality has been linked to a glucosamine dependence of HD cells that can be demonstrated in cultured skin fibroblasts. Twenty HD, "at-risk," and normal cell lines were used in studies of growth, viability… CONTINUE READING
