Localization of phosphorylated ERK/MAP kinases to mitochondria and autophagosomes in Lewy body diseases.


We previously found that sustained ERK activation contributes to toxicity elicited by the parkinsonian neurotoxin 6-hydroxydopamine. In addition, substantia nigra neurons from patients with incidental Lewy body disease, Parkinson disease (PD), and diffuse Lewy body dementia (DLB) display abnormal phospho-ERK accumulations in the form of discrete cytoplasmic… (More)
