Definition This transgenic drosophila expresses a for This transgenic drosophila expresses a form of alpha-synuclein that is a C-terminally truncated fragment comprising amino acids 1-120. This form of alpha-synuclein has an enhanced ability to aggregate and thus enhanced neurotoxicity. This mutant is used in research to determine the role of alpha-synuclein aggregation in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinsons. degenerative diseases, such as Parkinsons.
