Cellular Location of Neuroprotective Protein Associated with Parkinson’s Disease Development, Study Finds
Toxic protein aggregates called Lewy bodies sequestrate a protein that is usually found in the cell nucleus and known to protect against neurodegeneration, and change in this protein’s location contributes to the mechanisms underlying Parkinson’s disease, researchers report. The study, “Loss of nuclear REST/NRSF in aged-dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson’s disease patients,” was published in Neuroscience Letters. Aging is a primary risk ... read more
