α-Synuclein (α-syn) and oxidative stress play pivotal roles in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, the mechanisms underlying the interaction between α-syn and oxidative stress remain poorly understood. The present study provides evidence to suggest that the nuclear translocation of α-syn increases death of dopaminergic neurons in response(More)
Many neurological disorders result directly or indirectly from the loss of inhibitory function. Engineering the production of GABA, an inhibitory neurotransmitter, may therefore be able at least partly to restore the lost inhibition seen in epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, or Huntington's disease. In this article, we describe a set of recombinant(More)
Calcineurin is a Ca(2+)/calmodulin dependent phosphoprotein phosphatase implicated in a wide range of disorders. Here, we report the cloning of a novel calcineurin A alpha splice variant that lacks both the catalytic and calcineurin B binding domains. Biochemical analysis revealed a stimulating effect on calcineurin activity at low calcium concentrations as(More)
