Parkinson's disease is one of the most well known neurodegenerative diseases. It is a chronic, progressive neurodegenerative disease characterized by both motor and nonmotor features. The disease has a significant clinical impact on patients, families, and caregivers through its progressive degenerative effects on mobility and muscle control.(1) An estimated 7 to 10 million people worldwide suffer from Parkinson's disease. antibodies-online offers a hand-picked number of antibodies, ELISA kits, recombinant proteins, as well as other tools for Parkinson's research.
Here you will find a list of important antibodies, reagents, kits, and other tools you need for your research in the field of Parkinson's disease, as well as some more additional resources on the topic.

α-Synuclein is a presynaptic neuronal protein that is linked genetically and neuropathologically to Parkinson's disease (PD).(3) We offer a variety of reliable mono- and polyclonal SNCA antibodies.

As a promising target for neuroprotection strategies in PD, in vitro and in vivo models that accurately demonstrate LRRK2's function relevant to neurodegeneration will aide in the identification of molecules with the highest chance of success in the clinic.(4)
The DJ-1 gene is a causative gene for familial PD (park7) and also an oncogene. DJ-1 has various functions, including transcriptional regulation, antioxidative stress reaction, and chaperone, protease, and mitochondrial regulation.(5)
