  3. Huntingtin


Huntingtin (HTT) is a soluble 3144 amino acid (348 kDa) protein, with the highest levels of expression being found in the CNS and testes. An abnormal expansion of a glutamine stretch (polyQ) in N-terminal sequence of huntingtin leads to the devastating neurodegenerative disorder Huntington's disease (HD). Subcellular fractionation and microscopic studies have shown that huntingtin is associated with vesicles and microtubules by interacting with huntingtin-associated protein 1 (HAP1), which is reported to form a complex with the dynactin and modulate or regulate the dynein–dynactin complex. There is evidence that huntingtin participates in post-Golgi trafficking of proteins that follow the regulated secretory pathway.

Cat. No. Product Name Effect Purity
  • HY-132579
    Tominersen (RG6042) is a second-generation 2′-O-(2-methoxyethyl) antisense oligonucleotide that targets huntingtin protein (HTT) mRNA and potently suppresses HTT production. Tominersen improves survival and reduces brain atrophy in mice. Tominersen can be used for the research of Huntington’s disease (HD).
  • HY-132593
    Rovanersen (WVE-120101) is an antisense oligonucleotide that specifically targets mutated mRNA copies of the huntington (HTT) gene without affecting healthy mRNA of HTT gene, thereby preventing the production of faulty Huntingtin protein. Rovanersen can be used for huntington’s disease research.
  • HY-132594
    Lexanersen (WVE-120102) is an antisense oligonucleotide used for the study of Huntington's disease.
