PINK1 Mutant Drosophila

Name: PINK1 Mutant Drosophila
Description: This fly shows a mutation in PTEN induced kinase 1 (PINK1). Loss of function of PINK1 causes many symptoms similar to human Parkinson's disease. Common phenotypes show mitochondrial structural defects, reduced ATP content, and alpha-synuclein aggregation. This mutation is used to study Parkinson's disease in the laboratory.
