In a new study, a group of researchers report on their success in priming stem cells to differentiate into dopaminergic neurons in rat brains. Loss of these neurons is a major cause of Parkinson’s disease [1]. Less neurons, more Parkinson's Neuronal degeneration is the culprit behind several age-related disorders, including Parkinson's disease (PD), which affects...
Researchers at the Department of Biological Sciences at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, discovered that a protein known as Scarlet has protective effects against the fruit fly version of Parkinson's disease [1]. Abstract Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is characterized by the loss of dopaminergic neurons, resulting in progressive locomotor dysfunction. Identification of genes required for the...
