A recent paper has been published in Cell Death and Differentiation on a mechanism of cell death caused by alpha-synuclein oligomers in Parkinson's disease. In a collaboration between the University of Edinburgh, UCL, The Crick Institute, the University of Aberdeen, the University of New York, and the University of Cambridge, the paper describes how oligomers lead to lipid peroxidation, which causes cell death via ferroptosis.
