Ments (can present with chorea - choreathetosis) ballismus • ballismus - abrupt high amplitude movements (violent) dystonia • dystonia - movements of proximal muscles of trunk, often more sustained than those in chorea myoclonus • myoclonus - brief, simple movements (more common in early onset of hd) akinesia • akinesia - loss of motor function, reduced manual dexterity, dysarthria, dysphagia, balance problems, loss of ability initiate voluntary movements most common + 2 other behavioral disorders of hd • most common = depression • ocd, schizophrenia-like thought disorder subcortical/striatal degeneration • targets medium spiny gabaergic projection neurons (90% of neurons in caudate/putamen) o loss in gradient fashion from tail of caudate, proceeding anteriorly from medial-dorsal to lateral ventral areas of striatum • targets other components of bg (globus pallidus, subthalamic nucleus) • glial cells also lost - accelerating loss of medium spiny neurons --> increased glial index in striatum over course of disease subcortical degeneration clinical correlates • correlation with sx - loss of striatal projections in snpr --> dysregulation of superior colliculus --> abnormal saccades • correlation w/ sx - choriform movements most likely caused by imbalance between direct/indirect striatopallidal circuits indirect circuit affected first due to loss of medium spiny o neurons projection to gppex --> abnormal activity of cortical motor circuits --> chorea cortical degeneration o mostly layer vi (deepest) - with small amounts of degeneration of layers iii and v o not associated with neuronal cell loss in striatum o accompanying loss of white matter, brain volume can be reduced by as much as 20% in late stages of disease abnormalities in polyglutamine expansion • normal alleles of it15 gene (hd gene) contain 9-24 cag repeats (glutamine) • patients have alleles with expanded stretch repeats of 40-121 repeats huntingtin o found predominantly in cytoplasm + associated with vesicles/microtubules o important for efficient trafficking of vesicles + organelles in neurons o htt expression enriched in brain + testis, expressed in every cell of the body o no obvious difference in level of htt expression observed in striatum and less affected brain regions correlation between age of onset + triple repeat length • triplet repeat length can vary from generation to generation, from cell to cell o males can transmit larger.
