Parkinson’s Disease Treatment May Be Unlocked by Protein Structures

August 21, 2020


Scientists at the University of Bath have discovered a series of protein structures that are thought to be highly relevant to the onset of Parkinson’s disease (PD).

Their findings, “A series of helical α-synuclein fibril polymorphs are populated in the presence of lipid vesicles,” is published in Nature Partner Journal-Parkinson’s Disease and led by Jody Mason, PhD, professor in the department of biology & biochemistry at the University of Bath.
