    TorsinB overexpression prevents abnormal twisting in DYT1 dystonia mouse models

    Jay Li et al.
    Enhancing levels of the torsinA paralog torsinB prevents essentially all torsinA loss-of-function neuropathological and behavioral phenotypes, identifying torsinB as a novel therapeutic target for DYT1 dystonia.
