The formation of cytotoxic intracellular protein aggregates is a pathological signature of multiple neurodegenerative diseases. The principle aggregating protein in Parkinson’s disease (PD) and atypical Parkinson’s diseases is alpha-synuclein (a-syn), which occurs in neural cytoplasmic inclusions. Several factors have
Porphyrins belong to the most important classes of functional materials. These unique ligands play fundamental roles in Nature in, for example, energy and oxygen processing (. photosynthesis and respiration). Thus, these macrocycles are aptly characterized as “pigments of life”.
