Parkinson's disease (PD) is associated with diverse genetic and environmental susceptibilities. Functional connections between PD genes have remained elusive. In this issue of Neuron, MacLeod et al. (2013) link three PD susceptibility genes, LRRK2, PARK16, and VSP35, to a common cellular pathway and show how these deficits contribute to dysfunction. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
