SMG-1 and Parkinson's Disease (PD)

Absence of SMG1 protein could lead to PD

A new study has suggested that the absence of a protein called SMG1 - identified as a Regulator of Parkinson's disease-associated alpha-Synuclein-could aid in the development of Parkinson's and other related neurological disorders.

In light of these findings, we believe SMG1 will have increasing importance for PD Researchers. We now have a solid marker for this protein.
