BIOENGINEERING SEMINAR Abstract: Electron cryotomography (ECT) enables intact cells to be visualized in 3D in an essentially native state to macromolecular (~4 nm) resolution. It has allowed us to visualize the structures of macromolecular machines in their native context inside intact cells. In many cases, such machines cannot be purified intact for in vitro study. ...

Hong Kong Huntington’s disease (HD) is a genetic neurodegenerative disorder caused by an abnormal expansion of CAG trinucleotide repeats in the huntingtin gene. Mutant huntingtin (mhtt) proteins induce the progressive neuronal loss from the striatum and cortex, despite of their ubiquitous expression. One possible mechanism of this selective degeneration is that dysfunction in synaptic transmission ...
