Brief description Approximately 1 in 100 people are carriers of mutations in the glucocerebrosidase (GBA) gene and are at considerably greater risk of diseases characterised clinically by parkinsonism and by the presence of Lewy body-related pathology. This study will provide tissue-based evidence of the cellular lipid and protein changes relating to Lewy body formation in patients with GBA mutations, providing the information necessary to identify the pathways and mechanisms involved.
