Discovery of a novel aggregation domain in the huntingtin protein: implications for the mechanisms of Htt aggregation and toxicity

Aggravating aggregation: an N-terminal domain that is in close proximity to the polyQ domain in the huntingtin protein, htt105-138, is shown to be highly aggregation prone. Potential cross-talk between this domain and the polyQ region may play a central role in regulating the aggregation and toxicity of Htt-N-terminal fragments.
