Engineered Protein Binds to Alpha-synuclein to Prevent Toxic Clumping, Study Reports

An engineered protein known as AS69 is able to bind to individual units of alpha-synuclein to prevent them from clumping, and — in a fly model of Parkinson’s disease — its use led to preserved motor function, a study reports. The study, “An engineered monomer binding-protein for α-synuclein...
