Definition These mutant flies express a the human mut These mutant flies express a the human mutant A53T alpha-synuclein mutation. This mutation alters the secondary shift of residue 53 from a positive to a negative value and thereby creates a short contiguous region of negative shifts around the site of the mutation, indicating a local preference for extended backbone configurations. This mutation accelerates alpha-synuclein oligomerization, increases the rate of mature fibril formations, and aggregates much faster than wild type alpha-synuclein. It has an earlier onset. Flies expressing A53T alpha-synuclein show symptoms of Parkinson's disease and are used in the lab to study the disease. are used in the lab to study the disease.
