Parkinson's disease (PD) is a complex, heterogeneous neurodegenerative disorder, affecting approximately 1% of the population over 60 years of age. The molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying PD pathogenesis are still unknown. Clathrin-mediated endocytosis (CME) is a procedure closely related to the intracellular trafficking of multiple molecules in the cell, including proteins, lipids, and neurotransmitters. Recently, variations in the gene encoding the phosphatidylinositol binding… CONTINUE READING
