Synucleinopathies are neurodegenerative diseases characterized by accumulation of alpha-synuclein protein aggregates in neurons and glial cells. Discover the latest research on synucleinopathies here.
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.
This feed focuses on the C9orf72 protein and its possible role in lysosome function and implication in frontotemporal dementia and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
