Gene: Snca (synuclein alpha) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Snca
Name: synuclein alpha
Description: Exhibits several functions, including phospholipase binding activity; protein N-terminus binding activity; and tubulin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral response to cocaine; negative regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process; and response to desipramine. Localizes to several cellular components, including cytoplasmic vesicle; distal axon; and mitochondrion. Predicted to colocalize with platelet alpha granule membrane. Used to study Parkinson's disease and amphetamine abuse. Biomarker of mental depression and neurilemmoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; Lewy body dementia; Parkinson's disease; Parkinson's disease 1; and Parkinson's disease 4. Orthologous to human SNCA (synuclein alpha); PARTICIPATES IN Parkinson's disease pathway; altered ubiquitin/proteasome degradation pathway; Alzheimer's disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: alpha-synuclein; MGC105443; synuclein, alpha; synuclein, alpha (non A4 component of amyloid precursor); truncated alpha synuclein
