Therapeutic Avenue for Parkinson's Disease?

In post-mortem samples from individuals with Parkinson's, brain cells called astrocytes show evidence of cellular senescence. Senescent cells loose a specific protein from their nuclei; this protein is indicated with the green signal in the image above. This protein is lost from astrocytes (red cells), but not from neighboring cells. Note that astrocytes do not appear to become senescent in control individuals -- on the left.
