Aβ Puts the Alpha in Synuclein

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


Neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease are characterized pathologically by aberrant protein accumulation, such as Aβ or α-synuclein deposition. In this issue of Neuron, Bassil et al. (2020) observed an exacerbation of α-syn pathology in the presence of Aβ plaques in vivo, with comorbid pathologies associated with greater neurodegeneration.
