So proud of this paper and all the hard work that went into this story. Bacterial curli fibers produced in the gut can accelerate alpha-syn aggregation in the brains of mice
Potential role of the gut Microbiome in Parkinson's disease through promotion of alpha-synuclein accumulation
Interesting new work by Timothy Sampson et al, Mazmanian lab : Curli produced by gut bacteria function in a prion-like manner to exacerbate alpha-synuclein aggregation and motor impairments in a mouse model of #Parkinson's disease
