How Parkinson's Protein Destroys Cell Membranes

An illustration showing how the mitochondria-imitating lipid vesicles are damaged by the Parkinson's protein alpha synuclein. The light scattering reveals how the membrane is destroyed even at very low, nanomolar, concentrations, where proteins do not aggregate to clumps before they bind.
