Human iPSC-Derived Neural Stem Cells that have been genetically edited using CRISPR-Cas9 technology to introduce the G2019S mutation (GGC>AGC) in the LRRK2 gene. This line is heterozygous for the G2019S mutation where one allele contains the mutation and the other allele is wild type at the locus. Click on the product images to see the data and further details.
The G2019S mutation in LRRK2 has been implicated in autosomal-dominant familial Parkinson's disease with late onset (Fonzo et al., 2006, Thaler et al., 2009). The G2019S mutation increases the kinase activity of LRRK2 causing increased autophosphorylation and substrate phosphorylation that may affect neuronal cell health in Parkinson's disease patients (West et al., 2005).
