Study details link between protein clumping, Parkinson's

US and UK researchers who used detailed brain cell analysis found that alpha-synuclein protein clumps, which are associated with Parkinson's disease, impair essential proteins on the mitochondrial surface, prompting chemical leakage that leads to cell death. The findings in Nature Communications "highlight the need to develop therapies against the toxic form of alpha-synuclein," said researcher Dr. Sonia Gandhi.
