Researchers Work to Map LRRK2 Cell Interactions for Parkinson’s Clues, Study Says
Researchers characterized the structure and interactions of proteins connected to the leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) gene, the most common genetic cause of Parkinson’s disease, opening up new avenues for the development of new treatments for the disease. The study,” Structural Basis for Rab8a Recruitment of RILPL2 via LRRK2 Phosphorylation of Switch 2,” was published in the journal Structure. Parkinson’s is ... read more
