Washington: Researchers have made a significant discovery that could pave the way for a new treatment for Parkinson`s disease.The findings focus on an enzyme known as parkin, whose absence causes an early-onset form of Parkinson`s disease.Precisely how the loss of this enzyme leads to the deaths of neurons has been unclear.But The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) researchers showed that parkin`s loss sharply reduces the level of another protein that normally helps protect neurons from stress.
