Parkin is a broad neuroprotective agent that acts against a wide range of toxic insults, including those that are not part of the ubiquitin-proteasome system.
Following the Nobel-awarded discovery of the ubiquitin-proteasome system in 2004, IBRB's Molecular and Cellular Ageing Programme is one of the world's most significant research groups working in the Proteasome and Human Ageing field with a number of globally-recognised publications on this subject.
Neuronal cell adhesion molecules "are critical in the development of the nervous system, contributing to axonal guidance, synaptic formation and plasticity, and neuronal-glial interactions," the researchers explained, while the ubiquitin-proteasome system "operates pre- and post-synaptic compartments, regulating synaptic attributes, including transmitter release, synaptic vesicle recycling in pre-synaptic terminals, and dynamic changes in dendritic spines and the post-synaptic density.
