Post : Junior Research Fellow
Project title : Liquid-liquid phase separation of α-Synuclein leading to amyloid fibril formation: Implications in Parkinson?s disease pathology
About the project : Liquid-liquid phase separation (LLPS) is an important phenomenon for explaining the formation of membrane-less organelles in cells. Recent studies also suggested that LLPS is also responsible for amyloid fibril nucleation associated with various neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and frontotemporal dementia. This DST project studies alpha-synuclein protein (which aggregates and kills dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson’s disease) phase separation in vitro and inside the neuronal cells.
