Bifunctional Dimer Drugs Prove Effective in Parkinson's Disease Yeast Model

A team of Canadian neurodegenerative disease researchers used a yeast model system to identify novel drug compounds that were able to block the misfolding of alpha- synuclein (AS) protein, which characterizes the neurons of patients with Parkinson's disease. More...

Protein Linked to Destruction of Mitochondria in Huntington's Disease

Researchers studying the molecular mechanisms involved in Huntington's disease (HD) have identified a protein that binds to mutant huntingtin protein in the mitochondria of neurons, which results in destruction of the mitochondria and death of the nerve cells. More...
