α-Synuclein (α-Syn), a major component of Lewy body that is considered as the hallmark of Parkinson's disease (PD), has been implicated in neuroexocytosis. Overexpression of α-Syn decreases the neurotransmitter release. However, the mechanism by which α-Syn buildup inhibits the neurotransmitter release is still unclear. Here, we investigated the effect of… (More)
Eglin c, turkey ovomucoid third domain, and bovine pancreatic trypsin inhibitor (Kunitz) are all standard mechanism, canonical protein inhibitors of serine proteinases. Each of the three belongs to a different inhibitor family. Therefore, all three have the same canonical conformation in their combining loops but differ in their scaffoldings. Eglin c (Leu45… (More)
