Fragmentation of Golgi apparatus of nigral neurons with α-synuclein-positive inclusions in patients with Parkinson’s disease


We examined whether the Golgi apparatus (GA) is fragmented in nigral neurons in 18 cases with Parkinson’s disease (PD) and in 8 control cases. The nigral neurons in cases with PD showed various degrees of Lewy pathology with α-synuclein immunohistochemistry, and we divided the neurons into three subtypes according to differences in α-synuclein… (More)
