26586132 Cellular pathways affected by bSyn are similar to those affected by aSyn, including impairment of vesicular trafficking and induction of oxidative stress.
26332674 loss of inhibitory C-terminal conformations in disease associated P123H beta-synuclein
26111745 beta-Synuclein expression was locally concentrated and rather modest, but nevertheless changed its effect on amyloid precursor protein expression and plaque load in a time- and concentration-dependent manner.
25389903 The differing aggregation propensities of alpha-synuclein and beta-synuclein are associated with differences in the degree of residual structure in the C-terminus coupled to the shorter separation between the N- and C-termini in beta-synuclein.
23630590 Beta-synuclein protects against isoaspartate accumulation in alpha-synuclein.
23319586 In vivo cross-linking reveals principally oligomeric forms of alpha-synuclein and beta-synuclein in neurons and non-neural cells
23013868 both alphaS- and P123H betaS-globules were formed through similar but distinct pathogenic mechanisms.
22205345 Data provide evidence for the role of beta-synuclein minor transcript variants in the development of complex diseases and provide new insights into the pathogenesis of Lewy body diseases.
21699177 Despite both synucleins sharing considerable sequence homology, the level of carboxy-terminal Src kinase-homologous kinase (CHK) phosphorylation of beta-synuclein is significantly higher than that of alpha-synuclein.
21683963 This study suggested that the pathogenesis of dementia in Parkinson disease, indicating that differential sncb expression in the caudate nucleus may represent one of the molecular mechanisms involved in these complex diseases.
