Abstract

Objectives: : Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease is a neurodegenerative disease caused by the loss of cells that secrete dopamine in the basal ganglia. Galectins are multipotent, evolutionarily conserved, cell surface glycoconjugated and crosslinked carbohydrate-binding proteins. The roles of these proteins in the diagnosis of the disease have been investigated.
