dc.description.abstractParkinson’s disease (PD) is an incurable neurodegenerative disorder with a high prevalence rate worldwide. The fact that there are currently no proven disease-modifying treatments for PD underscores the urgency for a more comprehensive understanding of the underlying disease mechanism. Chemical probes have been proven to be powerful tools for studying biological processes. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) contains a huge reservoir of bioactive small molecules as potential chemical probes that may hold the key to unlocking the mystery of PD biology. The TCM-sourced chemical approach to PD biology can be advanced through the use of an emerging cytological profiling (CP) technique that allows unbiased characterization of small molecules and their cellular responses. This comprehensive technique, applied to chemical probe identification from TCM and used for studying the molecular mechanisms underlying PD, may inform future therapeutic target selection and provide a new perspective to PD drug discovery.en_US
