Fly protein has protective effect on dopaminergic neurons

A team from Lehigh University recently identified the fruit fly protein known as Scarlet as a target gene whose function is required to prevent age-dependent loss of dopaminergic neurons in fruit flies. They found that loss of Scarlet activity causes a progressive loss of dopaminergic neurons and that Scarlet has a neuroprotective role in a model of Parkinson's disease. These results were recently published The Journal of Cell Science.
