New research reveals how alpha-synuclein interacts with cell membranes in Parkinson’s disease

It has been suggested that oligomeric α-synuclein causes membranes to become permeable, or to form channels on the outer cell membrane. Now, a group of scientists from Sweden has found a way to reliably… New research reveals how alpha-synuclein interacts with cell membranes in Parkinson’s disease
