from Buck Institute for Age Research via Medical Xpress

Based on research in fruit flies, it has long been suspected that the most common mutation linked to both sporadic and familial Parkinson's disease wreaks its havoc by altering the function of mitochondria in neurons that produce the neurotransmitter dopamine.
