Although mutations in the Huntingtin gene (HTT) due to polyQ expansion are known to cause neuropathology in humans (Huntington's disease, HD), the normal function(s) of the huntingtin gene and its product remains obscure. The principal aim of this thesis was to gain a better understanding of the evolution, function and genetics of the huntingtin gene using the invertebrate chordate Ciona intestinalis.
