Caption: Parkinson's disease. Fluorescent deconvolution micrograph of brain tissue of a patient with Parkinson's disease. The protein ubiquitin is red, cell nuclei are blue and connective tissue is green. Ubiquitin attaches to other proteins to signal that they need to degraded. A failure of this process is thought to contribute to the progression of Parkinon's disease, a neurodegenerative disease that leads to tremor, muscular rigidity, poor balance and depression.
