RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT - Seeding Propensity and Characteristics of Pathogenic αSyn Assemblies in Formalin-Fixed Human Tissue

This study of α-synuclein’s (α-syn) seeding activity in tissue from the brain and enteric nervous system by the IMPRiND team CNRS suggests that different strains exist within the brain of individuals suffering from PD.
