Diverse Parkinson's-related Disorders May Stem from Different Strains of Same Disease Protein, According to Penn Study
Different Parkinson’s-related brain disorders, called synucleinopathies, are characterized by misfolded proteins embedded in cells. Researchers in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania found that the type of brain cell afflicted dictates which pathological form of α-synuclein (α-syn) protein becomes the disease culprit. The team’s results were published in Nature.More Research
