BackgroundAlpha-Synuclein (SNCA) is a member of the Synuclein family. SNCA is expressed principally in brain but also expressed in low concentrations in all tissues except liver. SNCA interacts with UCHL1, Phospholipase D and histones. SNCA can include beta- and gamma-synuclein. In addition, SNCA is an important regulatory component of vesicular transport in neuronal cells. It has been suggested that SNCA is related to the pathogenesis of Parkinson's Disease and neurodegenerative disorders. Defects in SNCA will lead to Dementia Lewy Body (DLB).
