Melkani GC, Trujillo AS, Ramos R, Bodmer R, Bernstein SI, Ocorr K. Huntington's disease induced cardiac amyloidosis is reversed by modulating protein folding and oxidative stress pathways in the Drosophila heart. PLoS Genet. 2013;9(12):e1004024. PMID: 24367279; PMCID: PMC3868535.
From the abstract: "... We conclude that modulation of both protein unfolding and oxidative stress pathways in the Drosophila heart model can ameliorate the detrimental PolyQ effects, thus providing unique insights into the genetic mechanisms underlying amyloid-induced cardiac failure in HD patients."
