Objective: Although effector and regulatory T-cell populations can promote either neurotoxic or neuroprotective effects in the control of the brain’s microenvironment, how these cells are induced during Parkinson’s disease is not known.1, 2 David Sulzer and colleagues3 have reported a functional role of α-synuclein in immune tolerance. The authors posit that lymphocyte populations emerge from α-synuclein induction of autoreactive CD4+ and CD8+ T cells.
