I also fold for the cause, but you can say I have a personal interest in it. Anyways, I wish nothing but the best for you and yours. Good luck.
I always wondered why your wife put up with all the money you spend on your farm + the heat it must put out.

Good luck man, keep it up!

I've just started using the GPU2 client, and now my PPD has tripled. I love the competition, but now that I've heard Enterprise's story, I have yet another reason to fold.

Truly inspiring, My mum has breast cancer and its quite bad, folding is my way of thinking that at least I'm helping in my own way.

Well.. I don't fold but I crunch. Am I not good enough for OCN?
Either way, it's for the same cause.

Best of luck to you and your family mate.

Wow I did not know how many people here at OCN Folded not only because they wished to help but also for there own loved ones. Its great to see people doing what they can to help the people. Its truley moving.

I am not sure if the Folding project looks at Huntintons...I will have to check. However as Huntintons can cause or is similar to other ill health then Folding for something like Alzeimers may also help in finding a treatment for Huntindons. You will be surprised at how Diseases can be very closely linked with each other. I am going to see what Folding actually covers.

Thanks for all your support guys !. Its awesome.

Keep up the great work.

Huntington's Disease (HD)


HD is caused by the aggregation of a different type of proteins. Some proteins have a repeat of a single amino acid (glutamine, often abbreviated as "Q"). These poly-Q repeats, if long enough, form aggregates which cause HD. We are studying the structure of poly-Q aggregates as well as predicting the pathway by which they form. Similar to AD, these HD studies, if successful, would be useful for rational drug design approaches as well as further insight into how HD aggregates form kinetically (hopefully paving the way for a method to stop the HD aggregate formation).

WOOT it seems they do Cover HD.

Enterprise, thank you for sharing your story! My heart goes out to you & your family!

I fold for personal reasons as well having lost my mother to cancer, my father-in-law is fighting it & my grandmother has been fighting leukemia for a number of years.

Together, I hope we can find a cure for these terrible afflictions!

Hang in there bud, you have many friends among you!
