Hands; Robert Mason; M. Umar Sajjad; Flaviano Giorgini; Andreas Wyttenbach HD (Huntington's disease) is caused by a polyQ (polyglutamine) expansion in the huntingtin protein, which leads to protein misfolding and aggregation of this protein. Abnormal copper accumulation in the HD brain...

...Svetlana Lutsenko Wilson's disease is a severe human disorder of copper homoeostasis. The disease is associated with various mutations in the ATP7B gene that encodes a copper-transporting ATPase, and a massive accumulation of copper in the liver and several other tissues. The most frequent disease...

.... The affinity and number of Cu 2+ -binding sites support the suggestion that PrP could act as an antioxidant by binding potentially harmful Cu 2+ ions and sacrificially quenching of free radicals generated as a result of copper redox cycling. Finally, the effect of Cu 2+ on the prion structure and misassembly...
