Histone deacetylase-3 interacts with ataxin-7 and is altered in a spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 mouse model.
 

Author(s): Carlotta E Duncan, Mahru C An, Theodora Papanikolaou, Caitlin Rugani, Cathy Vitelli, Lisa M Ellerby

Journal:

 

Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 (SCA7) is caused by a toxic polyglutamine (polyQ) expansion in the N-terminus of the protein ataxin-7. Ataxin-7 has a known function in the histone acetylase complex, Spt/Ada/Gcn5 acetylase (STAGA) chromatin-remodeling complex. We hypothesized that some ...
