Direct MRI-guided stereotaxic viral mediated gene transfer of alpha-synuclein in the Göttingen minipig CNS.


The aim was to establish a non-primate large animal PD model by lentiviral vector mediated mutant alpha-synuclein overexpression in the substantia nigra. Lentivirus encoding A53T alpha-synuclein (6 x 2.5 μl) was stereotaxically injected into the substantia nigra of six adult female Göttingen minipigs. Contralateral control injections encoding enhanced green… (More)
