  • Abstract Apolipoprotein nanodiscs are a versatile tool in nanotechnology as membrane mimetics allowing, for example, the study of membrane proteins. It has recently been discovered that the Parkinson’s disease associated protein α-synuclein (α-Syn) can also form discoid-like lipoprotein nanoparticles. The present review highlights the observation that α-Syn has the properties to define stable and homogeneous populations of nanoparticles with diameters of 7–10 nm and 19–28 nm by modifying lipid… CONTINUE READING
