HACARUS’ Collaborative Research On Parkinson’s Disease Has Been Published In The “FASEB Journal.”

Our joint research on Parkinson’s disease, conducted in collaboration with the Department of Functional Pathology, Graduate School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, the University of Tokyo, has been summarized in a paper and published in the scientific journal “FASEB Journal,” which is published by Wiley.

In this joint research, it was discovered that over expression of Leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) leads to the accumulation of lysosomes near the nucleus. LRRK2 is known as a causative gene for familial Parkinson’s disease, and the findings of this joint research are expected to contribute to the elucidation of the mechanisms of Parkinson’s disease. HACARUS performed quantitative analysis of the degree of lysosome accumulation and dispersion from cell images obtained through experiments.
