α-Synuclein is a small presynaptic protein associated with both normal synaptic plasticity and neurodegenerative processes. Its normal cellular function, however, remains unknown. Even though it is highly enriched in the brain, its presence was reported in other human adult tissues. In the present study, we examined tissue expression of α-synuclein in human and rat prenatal development. Using Western blot analysis, various peripheral tissues from 15 to 23 gestational weeks, human and E19 rat… CONTINUE READING
