Striatal Neurons Generated from Corrected iPSCs

Caption: Huntington's disease results in massive loss of cells in the brain, particularly in regions called the cortex and striatum. The cells depicted are from a patient with HD - they have been genetically corrected. These are striatal neurons which are expressing DARPP-32 and beta-III-tubulin, markers of neurons lost in HD.
