Connie K. Ho for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online In 1993, the autosomal dominant gene mutation responsible for Huntington´s Disease (HD) was discovered. However, no treatments are known to slow its progression. New research may pave the way to better understanding of the disease. Researchers at Johns Hopkins recently announced that they were able to produce stem cells from skin cells from a person who had severe, early-onset form of HD; the cells were then changed into...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) -- Using a human induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) from a patient suffering from Huntington´s disease, researchers at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging have corrected the genetic mutation that is responsible for the disease. To accomplish this process, researchers took the diseased iPSCs, made the genetic correction, generated neural stem cells, and then transplanted the mutation-free cells into a mouse model of Huntington´s disease where they are...

The Munchkin is a fairly new breed of cat with a lot of controversy surrounding it. The breed is created by a mutation that causes achondroplasia, or hypochondroplasia, which results in the cats having abnormally short legs. The breed originated when a pregnant, short-legged black cat was discovered in Louisiana in 1983. One of her kittens, a tomcat, became the father of the breeding program for Munchkins. Several cat registries refuse to recognize the breed due to the controversy that...
