PDYN-derived Peptides Identified as Possible, Much-needed HD Biomarkers

Levels of proteins derived from prodynorphin (PDYN) — ultimately used during cell-to-cell signaling in the brain — are decreased in the fluid surrounding the brains of people with Huntington’s disease (HD), a new small study suggests. These findings indicate that PDYN-derived proteins could be used as specific biological…
