Reagents, Molecular Assay, Gene Anomaly, Mutation, SNCA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify mutations in the synuclein, alpha (non A4 component of amyloid precursor) (SNCA) gene, located at chromosome 4q22, which encodes for a protein that may integrate presynaptic signaling and membrane transport of dopamine. This inherited genetic mutation has been identified in patients with familial Parkinson's disease.
