Yeast Cells Demonstrate Parkinson's Protein 12/08/03

December 8, 2003 9:52 am | Articles | Comments

by Elizabeth Tolchin Patients with a rare inherited form of Parkinson's disease (PD) have an excess of the alpha-synuclein (aSyn) producing gene, creating a buildup of protein inside brain cells, resulting in a condition that resembles symptoms of PD. New research uses a yeast model to better understand how and when the gene's production of alpha-synuclein becomes harmful to surrounding cells.
