The Study of the Recurrent Sequence of CAG in Three Generations of an Iranian Family Suffering from Huntington Disease via PCR-Sequencing

Abstract:  Background: Huntington’s disease (HD) is the most common neurodegenerative one having the dominant autosomal inheritance which is being characterized by the excessive uncontrolled motor movements and the deficits in the emotional and cognitive functions. The mutation responsible for Huntington disease leads polyglutamine protein to be distributed in Huntington protein which carries more toxic functions towards Huntington protein. The aim of the study is to design a PCR system to diagnose Huntington disease which can detect the genotype of the disease.
