For the many genes and proteins involved in Parkinson’s disease, it’s a small world. Basically, they are all at least friends of friends. Leveraging connections between yeast genes to infer links between human genes, researchers led by the late and beloved Susan Lindquist of the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts, have just made that clear.
Tai Chi for Reducing Dual-task Gait Variability, a Potential Mediator of Fall Riskin Parkinson’s Disease: A Pilot randomized controlled trial.
As we learn more about genetic connections to Parkinson’s disease (PD), researchers strive to understand the biological and functional impact of these variants. What does having a GBA mutation really mean for someone? Complicating matters further is that there are many different mutations on one gene. How does the type of mutation on that gene […]
A new model of Parkinson’s disease re-creates key features of the disorder, and helps steady one disputed theory of what causes it. Mice carrying mutations that disrupt physiological tetramers of the α-synuclein protein develop brain pathology and neurodegeneration typical of PD, according to work from the lab of Dennis Selkoe at Brigham and Women’s Hospital […]
The impact of Tai Chi and Qigong mind-body exercises on motor and non-motor function and quality of life in Parkinson’s disease: A systematic review and meta-analysis
Changes in shape and structure can turn a well-behaved cellular protein into something altogether more sinister, but in many cases researchers do not know exactly which modifications are at fault. At the 12th International Conference on Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Diseases, held March 18-22 in Nice, France, speakers grappled with what makes α-synuclein go rogue. Researchers […]
