Lewy bodies are intracellular fibrillar inclusions composed of alpha-synuclein. They constitute the pathological hallmark of Parkinson's disease, dementia with Lewy bodies, and other neurodegenerative diseases. Although the majority of Lewy bodies are stained for ubiquitin by immunohistochemistry, the substrate for this modification is poorly understood. Insoluble, urea-soluble alpha-synuclein was separated from soluble fractions and subjected to two-dimensional gel electrophoresis to further...Expand abstract
