Friedreich's Ataxia: From the (GAA)( n ) Repeat Mediated Silencing to New Promising Molecules for Therapy.

Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) is a neurodegenerative disease due to a pathological expansion of a GAA triplet repeat in the first intron of the FXN gene encoding for the mitochondrial protein frataxin. The expansion is responsible for most cases of FRDA through the formation of a nonusual B-DNA structure and heterochromatin conformation that determine a direct transcriptional silencing and the subsequent reduction in frataxin expression.
