Abstract

Genetic forms represent a small fraction of Parkinson's disease (PD) but their discovery has revolutionized research in the field, putting α-synuclein in the spotlight, and uncovering other key neuropathological mechanisms of the disease. The question of whether genetic and idiopathic P...read more

Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson's Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by loss of muscle control, including trembling of the limbs and impaired balance. Here is the latest research.

Galectins & Alpha-Synuclein

Galectins proteins bind to sugar molecules and mediate the cellular response to endocytic vesicles. It is believed that some galectin proteins are involved in microglia activation induced by α-synuclein. Here is the latest research on galectins and alpha-synuclein.

Parkinson's Disease: Alpha-Synuclein

Alpha-synuclein is an integral component of Lewy bodies which are comprised of protein clumps and are a pathological hallmark of Parkinson’s disease. Here is the latest research.

α-Synuclein Structure and Function

α-Synuclein is an integral component of Lewy bodies which are comprised of protein clumps and are a pathological hallmark of Parkinson’s disease. Here is the latest research on α-Synuclein structure and function.

Alpha-Synuclein Aggregation

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.

T Cell Reactivity to Tau & Alpha-Synuclein in PD

Tau and alpha-synuclein are proteins that form aggregates which characterize various neurodegenerative disorders including Parkinson’s disease. This feed focuses on the reaction of T lymphocytes in response to tau and alpha-synuclein.

Misfolded Proteins: ND

Protein misfolding is the primary cause of several neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Here is the latest research.

Alpha-Synuclein Structure and Function

α-Synuclein is an integral component of Lewy bodies which are comprised of protein clumps and are a pathological hallmark of Parkinson’s disease. Here is the latest research on α-Synuclein structure and function.

Synucleinopathies

Synucleinopathies are neurodegenerative diseases characterized by accumulation of alpha-synuclein protein aggregates in neurons and glial cells. Discover the latest research on synucleinopathies here.
