  • Scientific Background: Human alpha synuclein S87N mutant (HuS87N) has Ser87 mutated to the equivalent mouse residue Asn87, effectively making it a human-mouse chimeric protein. Despite sequence differences at only seven residues, or 5% of the total 140 amino acids, the aggregation rate of wild-type mouse α-syn (MsWT) is faster than wild-type human α-syn (HuWT) in vitro. In wild-type mouse models, MsWT fibrils are more efficient than HuWT fibrils at inducing pathology of endogenous mouse α-syn (1). A53T or S87N substitutions in human α-syn substantially accelerate fibrilization rates in vitro (2,3). Chimeric HuS87N fibrils show enhanced pathogenicity to wild-type mouse neurons, greater than HuWT, HuA53T, and MsWT fibrils (4). HuS87N fibrils can be used as a more human-like alternative to MsWT fibrils to induce equivalent or greater endogenous α-syn seeding and pathology in wild-type mice.
