Product Name
Alpha-Synuclein, 1-60
0.5 mg
Catalog #
Recombinant. A DNA sequence encoding the human alpha-synuclein (1-60) sequence was expressed in E. coli.
A deletion mutant of α-synuclein (amino acids 1-60), which contains the N-terminal amphipathic domain, 2,4 . Alpha-Synuclein (α-Synuclein) is a 14 kD (140 amino acids) acidic presynaptic protein. It is a major component of Parkinson’s disease aggregates and is implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s Disease and related neurodegenerative disorders. α-Synuclein accumulates in the brains of sporadic Parkinson’s disease patients as a major component of Lewy bodies, which are intraneuronal cytoplasmic inclusions characteristic of Parkinson’s disease. α-Synuclein appears to associate with other proteins that aggregate and is found in β-amyloid plaques and neuritic tangles in Alzheimer’s disease 3 .
