I think this the same thing. Seems a little more explanatory.

Maybe this will be the Christmas present we've been waiting for.

Thanks for posting that Pete

This is what Marsha said on the Lighthouse.

"I don't know if this particular study is going to lead to a treatment but I do think that the whole area of posttranslational modifications is an important line of research and that it could lead to a very significant treatment. After the protein is made, part of how it does its work in the cell is through these modifications. For example, a phsophate might be added or removed at a particular site on the protein. What's new about this study is that it's the first to find these particular sites significant. There's another spot that was already identified as significant in earlier work by some of the same researchers as well. Apparently the HD protein responds differently to some of these modifications than does the normal one. That could be an important pathology and it is targetable for treatment if it is."
