Parkinson’s Disease Protein Gums up Garbage Disposal System in Cells

Clumps of α-synuclein protein in nerve cells are hallmarks of many degenerative brain diseases, most notably Parkinson’s disease.

“No one has been able to determine if Lewy bodies and Lewy neurites, hallmark pathologies in Parkinson’s disease can be degraded,” says Virginia Lee, PhD, director of the Center for Neurodegenerative Disease Research, at the… Parkinson’s Disease Protein Gums up Garbage Disposal System in Cells
