Oxidized Dopamine and Dysfunctional Lysosomes in Parkinson's Disease

This research improves on the established links between a few of the forms of molecular damage and cellular dysfunction that central to the SENS view of aging, at least in the case of Parkinson's disease. These are lysosomal failure, mitochondrial dysfunction, and the accumulation of damaged proteins that form solid deposits, alpha-synuclein in this case. All age-related diseases emerge from the various typs of root cause damage that causes aging, some more directly, some with more intervening layers of secondary failure and damage.
