Not really Tom. Just a bit'o'the old cut and pasting from previous entries.

32. In Parkinson’s disease there is increased synuclein in caudate nucleus

FALSE

Important research now suggests that three molecules are critical in the development of inherited PD: alpha synuclein, parkin, and ubiquitin, which all interact in the normal brain. Abnormally high levels of alpha synuclein, which is produced in dopamine-rich nerve cells, may play a central role. Normally, two other molecules, parkin and ubiquitin, are involved in the natural self-destruction of synuclein--a natural process of programmed cell death called apoptosis. If this process goes awry, for instance with a defective parkin gene, then apoptosis fails to occur. If synuclein is not eliminated in these cells, it builds up and becomes toxic to dopamine. In such cases, synuclein accumulates in Lewy bodies, the deposits of fibrous tissue found in all patients with PD.

Another protein, beta amyloid, also increases the build-up of synuclein. Beta amyloid is a known factor in Alzheimer's disease, and may help explain the co-existence between Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease in many patients.

Lewy Bodies. The fibrous deposits known as Lewy bodies are the hallmark signs of Parkinson's disease. They are found in the substantia nigra, the place in the brain where dopamine is first released. It is not clear whether Lewy bodies are the major killers of the nerve cells or whether they are simply a byproduct of the degenerative process. They are found not only in the brains of patients with Parkinson's disease, but, in rare cases, may show up in cells in other parts of the body (e.g., the heart, intestine), causing severe disabling symptoms. These substances are also present in other diseases that cause dementia, such as Alzheimers, and can occur in people without neurologic symptoms.

Lewy bodies in:

· substantia nigra

· dorsal motor nucleus of the vagus

· hypothalamus

· nucleus basalis of Meynert

· locus coeruleus

· Edinger-Westphal nucleus

· raphe nuclei

· cerebral cortex

· olfactory bulb
