BJH728 C. elegans unc-26(pek288[R216Q]) IV. Show Description
unc-26(pek288) is a CRISPR-engineered R216Q substitution in unc-26/synaptojanin 1 associated with early-onset Parkinsonism (EOP) (Quadri et al., 2013; Krebs et al., 2013). This allele shows abnormal focal accumulation of ATG-9 in presynaptic nerve terminals, defects in activity-induced synaptic autophagy, and defects in sustained neurotransmission and locomotory behaviors in aging animals.
