Parkinson's disease is a common progressive neurodegenerative condition, characterized by the deposition of amyloid fibrils as Lewy bodies in the substantia nigra of affected individuals. These insoluble aggregates predominantly consist of the protein α-synuclein. There is increasing evidence suggesting that the aggregation of α-synuclein is influenced by(More)
The aggregation of α-synuclein (α-Syn) is believed to be one of the key steps driving the pathology of Parkinson's disease and related neurodegenerative disorders. One of the present hypotheses is that the onset of such pathologies is related to the rise of α-Syn levels above a critical concentration at which toxic oligomers or mature fibrils are formed.
