Parkinson’s Disease Research
Parkinson's disease involves rest tremor, rigidity, akinesia, and postural reflex impairment and also dysautonomia and cognitive dysfunction. It is characterized by the formation of structures called Lewy bodies and resultant neuronal loss in the substantia nigra and locus coeruleus. Lewy bodies contain phosphorylated α-synuclein proteins, and the accumulation of α-synuclein may be involved in the development of Parkinson's disease.
FUJIFILM Wako handles antibodies to phosphorylated α-synuclein, Parkin, and ASK1, as well as autophagy-related antibodies.
