LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection (MDS)

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Alpha-Synuclein Aggregation (MDS)

Alpha-synucleins are small proteins that are believed to restrict the mobility of synpatic vesicles and inhibit neurotransmitter release. Aggregation of these proteins have been linked to several types of neurodegenerative diseases including dementia with Lewy bodies and Parkinson's disease. Here is the latest research on α-synuclein aggregation.

Alpha-Synuclein Antibody Therapeutics (MDS)

Alpha-synuclein is an integral component of Lewy bodies which are comprised of protein clumps and are a pathological hallmark of Parkinson’s disease. They have also been detected in several other neurodegenerative diseases, known as synucleopathies. Here is the latest research on alpha-synuclein antibody therapeutics.

Astrocytes & Huntington’s Disease (MDS)

Astrocytes are abundant within the central nervous system and their dysfunction has been thought to be an important contributor to some neurodegenerative diseases, in particular Huntington’s disease. Damage to these cells may make neurons more susceptible to degeneration. Here is the latest research on astrocytes and Huntington’s disease.

Ataxia telangiectasia (MDS)

Ataxia telangiectasia is a rare neurodegenerative diseases caused by defects in the ATM gene, which is involved in DNA damage recognition and repair pathways. Here is the latest research on this autosomal recessive disease.

Ataxias (MDS)

Ataxia is a neurological condition characterized by lack of voluntary coordination of muscle movements including loss of coordination, balance, and speech. Discover the latest research on ataxia here.

Atypical Parkinsonism (MDS)

Atypical Parkinsonism presents with the same signs and symptoms of Parkinson's disease, but do not respond to typical Parkionson's disease treatment with levodopa. Atypical Parkinsonism is thought to be associated with abnormal protein buildup within brain cells. Here is the latest on Atypical Parkinsonism.

Autophagy: Cancer & Parkinson (MDS)

Autophagy leads to degradation of damaged proteins and organelles by the lysosome. Impaired autophagy has been implicated in several diseases. Here is the role of autophagy in cancer and Parkinson’s.

Basal ganglia in Parkinson's disease (MDS)

The basal ganglia is comprised of the neostriatum, the external and internal pallidal segments, the subthalamic nucleus, the substantia nigra pars reticulata, and the pars compacta of the substantia nigra. The basal ganglia circuitry is responsible for the correct execution of voluntary movements and is implicated in Parkinson's disease. Here is the latest research investigating the basal ganglia in Parkinson's disease.

Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (MDS)

Bovine spongiform encephalopathy is a neurodegenerative disease belonging to the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, a group of diseases including sheep scrapie and human Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease. Here is the latest research.
