Identifying Role of Proteins in Nerve Cells of Living Brain Possible

A new technique allowed researchers to label with specificity proteins inside neurons of the striatum — a brain region involved in voluntary movement control — within a living mouse. These findings may help scientists better understand the millions of distinct proteins in the brain and their interactions within neurons (nerve cells), and how their role changes under neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s. The study “Cell-type and subcellular compartment-specific APEX2 proximity labeling reveals activity-dependent nuclear proteome dynamics in…
