`Huntington’s disease, also known as Huntington’s chorea is an inherited disease which becomes evident usually in mid-life, causing uncontrollable jerks or spasms and gradual loss of brain cells, progressing to chorea, athetosis, and mental deterioration. The Huntington’s gene is dominant, and therefore children of people who have the disease have a 50 percent chance of developing it too. This paper will look at Huntington’s disease, recent findings from research, and how electrophoretic techniques can be used to look at the proteins involved in the pathogenesis of disease.`
