Another Protein Plays a Role in Spreading Harmful Alpha-synuclein in Parkinson’s, Mouse Study Shows

Scientists have linked the clumping of alpha-synuclein protein to Parkinson’s disease, and a study in mice indicates that the clumps accumulate and spread by interacting with the protein responsible for mad cow disease. What scientists call the cellular prion protein, or PrPc, is associated with the development of a number of rare neurodegenerative disorders known … Continue reading Another Protein Plays a Role in Spreading Harmful Alpha-synuclein in Parkinson’s, Mouse Study Shows
