Rice University scientists have discovered a molecular probe able to "light up" signs of the amyloid deposits implicated in Parkinson's disease. The ruthenium-based molecules only light up when attached to fibroids that form amyloid plaques inside cells.

The molecule is seen at Rice's DAVinCi Visualization Wall, at the Chevron Visualization Lab. The lab is supported by the National Science Foundation and administered by the Ken Kennedy Institute for Information Technology (http://www.k2i.rice.edu).
