Alpha-synuclein can form beta-sheet filaments, the accumulation of which plays a key role in the development of Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies and multiple system atrophy. It has previ...
Soluble aggregates of α-synuclein, so-called oligomers, are hypothesized to act as neurotoxic species in Parkinson's disease, Lewy body dementia and multiple systems atrophy, but specific tools to de...
The aim of this study was to assess clinical response to a high-dose intravenous (IV) amantadine given for 5 consecutive days in patients with multiple system atrophy parkinsonism (MSA-P).
Lewy body disease (LBD) is characterized by accumulation of aggregated α-synuclein in the central nervous system as eosinophilic cytoplasmic inclusions called Lewy bodies. According to their distribu...
The main objectives are to determine on one hand whether oligomeric alpha-synuclein levels are increased in MSA patients compared to controls and on other hand whether there is a good agre...
The purpose of conducting phase 1 trial is to evaluate the safety and tolerability of autologous bone marrow-derived mesenchymal stem cells(CS10BR05) in subjects with Multiple System Atrop...
A purpose of the present study is to investigate the capability of serum uric acid elevation, safety, and tolerability of inosine 5'-monophosphate in patients with multiple system atrophy ...
This study is based on positive results in open label trial of mesenchymal stem cells therapy in patients with Multiple System Atrophy (MSA).
Parkinson disease (PD) and multiple system atrophy (MSA) are progressive neurodegenerative disorders characterized by abnormal accumulation of α-synuclein. There is no effective treatment...
A synuclein that is closely related to ALPHA-SYNUCLEIN. It may play a neuroprotective role against some of the toxic effects of aggregated ALPHA-SYNUCLEIN.
A homolog of ALPHA-SYNUCLEIN that plays a role in neurofilament network integrity. It is overexpressed in a variety of human NEOPLASMS and may be involved in modulating AXON architecture during EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT and in the adult. Gamma-Synuclein may also activate SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION PATHWAYS associated with ETS-DOMAIN PROTEIN ELK-1.
A synuclein that is a major component of LEWY BODIES that plays a role in neurodegeneration and neuroprotection.
A group of inherited and sporadic disorders which share progressive ataxia in combination with atrophy of the CEREBELLUM; PONS; and inferior olivary nuclei. Additional clinical features may include MUSCLE RIGIDITY; NYSTAGMUS, PATHOLOGIC; RETINAL DEGENERATION; MUSCLE SPASTICITY; DEMENTIA; URINARY INCONTINENCE; and OPHTHALMOPLEGIA. The familial form has an earlier onset (second decade) and may feature spinal cord atrophy. The sporadic form tends to present in the fifth or sixth decade, and is considered a clinical subtype of MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1085)
A progressive neurodegenerative condition of the central and autonomic nervous systems characterized by atrophy of the preganglionic lateral horn neurons of the thoracic spinal cord. This disease is generally considered a clinical variant of MULTIPLE SYSTEM ATROPHY. Affected individuals present in the fifth or sixth decade with ORTHOSTASIS and bladder dysfunction; and later develop FECAL INCONTINENCE; anhidrosis; ATAXIA; IMPOTENCE; and alterations of tone suggestive of basal ganglia dysfunction.

Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
