Proenkephalin (PENK) and prodynorphin (PDYN) are peptides mainly produced by the striatal medium spiny projection neurons (MSNs) under dopaminergic signaling. Therefore, they may represent candidate biomarkers in Huntington's disease (HD) and Parkinson's disease (PD), two neurodegenerative diseases characterized by striatal atrophy and/or dysfunction.

Abstract

Proenkephalin (PENK) and prodynorphin (PDYN) are peptides mainly produced by the striatal medium spiny projection neurons (MSNs) under dopaminergic signaling. Therefore, they may represent candidate biomarkers in Huntington's disease (HD) and Parkinson's disease (PD), two neurodegenerative diseases characterized by striatal atrophy and/or dysfunction.
