senescence and neurons0 (0) A protein called scarlet can protect nerve cells from the damaging effects of toxic alpha-synuclein aggregates that occur in Parkinson’s disease, according to results of research into a fruit fly model. The study, “Neurodegeneration and locomotor dysfunction in Drosophila scarlet mutants,” was published in the Journal of Cell Science. Fruit flies (Drosophila melanogaster) […]
