3-D Structure of Huntingtin Protein Solved with Cryo-EM

The protein huntingtin consists of three flexible regions, shown in red, yellow and blue. Together with its interaction partner HAP40 (purple) huntingtin is more stable. This enabled the scientists to deduce their three-dimensional structure using cryo-electron microscopy. Credit: MPI of Biochemistry/ Illustration: Gabriele Stautner, ARTIFOX
