Parkinson's proteins choke cell's recycling system

Mitch Leslie

Abstract: Nuclear waste and plastic bottles might last forever, but proteins don't. Cells chop them up and reuse the pieces. A new study suggests that warped proteins found in rare forms of Parkinson's disease (PD) jam cellular recycling machinery. The results might explain why protein clots amass in common types of PD.
