Scientific Background :Beta-synuclein is a member of the synuclein family of proteins which are believed to be involved in the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative diseases. Beta-synuclein is highly homologous to alpha-synuclein which is abundantly expressed in the brain and putatively inhibits phospholipase D2 selectively. Beta-synuclein may play a role in neuronal plasticity, is abundant in neurofibrillary lesions of patients with Alzheimer disease. Beta-synuclein is shown to be highly expressed in the substantia nigra of the brain, a region of neuronal degeneration in patients with Parkinson disease but no direct relation to Parkinson disease has been established (1). An alteration in Beta-synuclein may impair its normal inhibitory action on the formation of toxic alpha-synuclein fibrils, thereby indirectly contributing to disease pathogenesis (2).
