Scientists Discover Mitochondria Recycling Method Likely Involved in Parkinson’s

An alternative method of recycling mitochondria — the cell’s powerhouses — that involves pushing damaged mitochondria out of cells, seems to play a role in Parkinson’s disease, according to a recent study. Researchers have found evidence in cellular and animal models of disease that this process is enhanced in the absence of parkin, a protein that — when dysfunctional — is known to trigger the onset of hereditary forms of Parkinson’s. Likewise, when researchers analyzed body…
