The parkin protein, whose mutated form is linked to certain cases of early onset Parkinson’s disease, protects neurons by lowering levels of potentially harmful oxidants, and by removing them from areas where they might do harm, a study reported. Exactly how parkin worked to help protect brain cells from this disorder was not previously known. The study, “Age-associated insolubility of parkin in human midbrain is linked to redox balance and sequestration of reactive dopamine metabolites,” was…
