Researchers have identified and categorized thousands of protein interactions involving huntingtin, the protein responsible for Huntington's disease. To use an analogy of a human social network, the identified proteins are like 'friends' and 'friends of friends' of the Huntington's disease protein. The network provides an invaluable resource for identifying targets to treat the disease and has been used to implicate a particular signaling pathway involved in cell motility.
