Balakrishnan IK, Rangasamy S, Natarajan J., Mitochondrial dysfunction gene hubs in Parkinsonís disease, Onl J Bioinform., 24 (2): 102-109, 2023. Parkinsonís disease is a chronic progressive neurodegenerative movement disorder. Mitochondrial dysfunction leads to increased production of reactive oxygen species detrimental to neurons. A mitochondrial dysfunction pathway map was constructed from literature and the KEGG database and the resulting network was topologically analyzed for gene nodes (Hubs). OXIDATIVE STRESS, DJ-1, ALPHA SYNUCLEIN AGGREGATION, PI3 KINASE/AKT SIGNALLING nodes were topologically important and identified as significant for potential therapeutic use.


KEY-WORDS: Parkinsonís disease, Oxidative stress, Mitochondrial dysfunction, Topological analysis.
