This causes the HTT protein to behave in an aberrant fashion in the cells in which it's made.HD is primarily thought of as disease of the brain, but the HTT protein (both the mutant and normal forms) is expressed in all the cells of the body.
We summarize our second result concerning the integrability of truncated resonant normal forms of the periodic KG lattices up to six particles in the following.
Additionally, due to the lengthy expressions derived in the treatment of the dynamics concerning the restriction of the system to the center manifold and the associated normal forms, as well, the algebraic platform mentioned above is proved to be appropriate in manipulating a large amount of analytical data.
Matrix equation (3) over a principal ideal domain is solvable if and only if the Hermite normal forms of the matrices [A [O.sub.m,k]] and [??] coincide; that is, matrices [A [O.sub.m,k]] and [??] are right equivalent.
AS ONE WORKS THROUGH the normal forms, be it a journey to the placid shores of third normal, or the more arid climes of Boyce-Codd normal form, or even the cloudy peaks of fourth normal and beyond--and before one starts thinking about normalizing the design--the database designer has covered a lot of ground work already.
