Stemming the flow: Stem cell study reveals how Parkinson's spreads
from Medical News Today
Stem cell research offers up new clues as to how Parkinson's spreads from cell to cell, a process which has evaded researchers for decades. The research, published in Stem Cell Reports, is the first to link the release of alpha synuclein, a naturally occurring protein that plays a central role in the development of Parkinson's, with its most common genetic risk factor — GBA1 — shedding new light on its role in the progression of the devastating neurological condition and its symptoms.
