Neuronal intranuclear inclusion disease (NIID) is a multisystem neurodegenerative disorder characterized by large intranuclear aggregates in neurons of the central and peripheral nervous system. These ubiquitinated intranuclear inclusions are morphologically similar to the intraneuronal aggregates that have been identified in the CAG/polyglutamine expansion diseases. As rare aggregates in NIID contain a polyglutamine epitope, we further investigated the relationship between this disease and the CAG/polyglutamine expansion diseases. Here, we show that ataxin 1 and ataxin 3 proteins are recruited into aggregates in NIID in the absence of a CAG expansion in the SCA1 and SCA3 genes. These data support an association of NIID with the polyglutamine disorders and provide evidence of in vivo recruitment of proteins with polyglutamine tracts into intraneuronal aggregates.

Abstract

Neuronal intranuclear inclusion disease (NIID) is a multisystem neurodegenerative disorder characterized by large intranuclear aggregates in neurons of the central and peripheral nervous system. These ubiquitinated intranuclear inclusions are morphologically similar to the intraneuronal aggregates that have been identified in the CAG/polyglutamine expansion diseases. As rare aggregates in NIID contain a polyglutamine epitope, we further investigated the relationship between this disease and the CAG/polyglutamine expansion diseases. Here, we show that ataxin 1 and ataxin 3 proteins are recruited into aggregates in NIID in the absence of a CAG expansion in the SCA1 and SCA3 genes. These data support an association of NIID with the polyglutamine disorders and provide evidence of in vivo recruitment of proteins with polyglutamine tracts into intraneuronal aggregates.
