Enhanced Akt signaling is an early pro-survival response that reflects N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor activation in Huntington's disease knock-in striatal cells.


Huntington's disease features the loss of striatal neurons that stems from a disease process that is initiated by mutant huntingtin. Early events in the disease cascade, which predate overt pathology in Hdh CAG knock-in mouse striatum, implicate enhanced N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor activation, with excitotoxity caused by aberrant Ca2+ influx.
