LRRK2 and Autophagy part II

untitled

Just out in Scientific Reports, a study from Claudia Manzoni in the group reporting that LRRK2 regulates macroautophagy via the Beclin pathway. The study is a follow up on a paper we published a couple of years ago, and provides important insights into the normal function of LRRK2, which will be very important for evaluating drugs that target this protein as a potential therapy for Parkinson’s. The paper is free to download, so click on the link below if you are interested in learning more.
