Sample text

Finally, the ability to manipulate objects or perform skilled manual activities (reaching, grasping, writing, dressing) is severely compromised in parkinsonian patients. This impairment results from defective sensorimotor integration [28,29] as well as from bradykinesia and deficits in scaling motor activation [30] and grip force production [31]. Again, simplifying motor plans, adopting external cues, and adapting targets can facilitate manual activities. The knowledge of defective physiological mechanisms in PD therefore supports using some basic strategies (although not yet specific protocols) in the rehabilitative treatment of parkinsonian patients.

Thus, it is a proapoptotic protein. Nonetheless, its mutation in its PDZ domain (carboxy-terminal side) was associated with familial PD. Furthermore, a mutation in the protease domain caused motor neuron degeneration type 2 in mice [44]. This protein thus appears to be an interesting new protein in some way related to familial PD. 12 Y. Mizuno, N. Hattori PARK4 PARK4 is an autosomal dominant familial PD characterized by L-doparesponsive parkinsonism associated with dementia. It is caused by triplication of the alpha-synuclein gene.
