Dr. Peg Nopoulos: The CAG discussion

When someone has Huntington's disease, part of the DNA sequence: (CAG: cytosine — adenine — guanine) repeats more times than normal. It is important to understand that everyone on the planet is born with the Huntington gene - CAG repeat. The healthy gene repeat is between 10 to 26 times. Repeats of CAG have been detected over 100 times.

Listen to Dr. Nopoulos talk about CAG.
