A new chemical messenger that is critical in protecting the brain against Parkinson’s disease has been identified by scientists. The research team had previously discovered that mutations in two genes — called PINK1 and Parkin — lead to Parkinson’s. Now they have made a completely unexpected discovery about the way the two genes interact, which they say could open up exciting new avenues for research around Parkinson’s and offer new drug targets.

The research team led by Dr Miratul Muqit had previously discovered that mutations in two genes — called PINK1 and Parkin — lead to Parkinson’s.

Now they have made a completely unexpected discovery about the way the two genes interact, which they say could open up exciting new avenues for research around Parkinson’s and offer new drug targets. The results of their research are published in Biochemical Journal.
