The Perez Lab Transgenic Mouse Project
Our transgenic mouse has a systemically overexpressed, constitutively active a1b adrenergic receptor. It displays phenotypes similar to Epilepsy, Parkinson's Plus and/or Multiple System Atrophy (Shy-Drager) in its locomotion dysfunction and neurodegeneration.
It may prove a useful model for neurodegenerative diseases and their potential treatments.
