RIT2 Gene’s Promise in Halting Parkinson’s Disease Progression

RIT2 Gene’s Promise in Halting Parkinson’s Disease Progression
Researchers identified a protein that could play a significant role in preventing Parkinson's disease. The protein, linked to the RIT2 gene, is believed to control the accumulation of alpha-synuclein, which destroys neuronal cells and is a known indicator of the disease. Experiments conducted in cell models and on mice showed that increasing the expression of the RIT2 gene helped protect ... read more
