Mutant LRRK2(R1441G) BAC transgenic mice recapitulate cardinal features of Parkinson's disease.

Nature neuroscience | Jul 25, 2009

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19503083

Mutations in leucine-rich repeat kinase 2 (LRRK2) are the most common genetic cause of Parkinson's disease. We created a LRRK2 transgenic mouse model that recapitulates cardinal features of the disease: an age-dependent and levodopa-responsive slowness of movement associated with diminished dopamine release and axonal pathology of nigrostriatal dopaminergic projection. These mice provide a valid model of Parkinson's disease and are a resource for the investigation of pathogenesis and therapeutics.
