The implication of alpha synuclein in neurodegenerative diseases started after the identification of non A beta component of amyloid (NAC peptide) in Alzheimer's disease (AD) brains. There is now a general group of synucleinopathies which implicates alpha synuclein in Lewy body syndromes, Parkinson' disease and Alzheimer's disease. Certain missense mutations in the alpha synuclein gene (A53T, A30P) have been linked to the familial Parkinson's disease (PD). Alpha Synuclein is the major component of Lewy bodies and Lewy neuritis in sporadic PD, dementia with Lewy Bodies and Lewy Body variant of AD. Lewy bodies are composed of truncated and phosphorylated intermediate neurofilament proteins, alpha synuclein, ubiquitin and associated enzymes. The synuclein phosphoproteins (15-20kD) are small highly conserved proteins in vertebrates. The synuclein family includes alpha and beta synucleins and loosely related gamma synuclein and synoretin. The expression is abundant in neurons and typically is localized at presynaptic terminals. Antibodies to alpha synuclein provide a specific method to detect Lewy bodies and associated pathological mechanism of PD and AD.
