Function of gene mutations linked to neurological diseases identified – Several gene mutations have been linked to Parkinson's disease, but exactly how and where some of them cause their damage has been unclear. A new Yale study, published in the Journal of Cell Biology, shows that one of the genes whose mutations are responsible for a familial form of Parkinson's encodes a protein that controls the transfer of lipids between membranes of cell organelles.
