E-MTAB-3986 - Transcription profiling by array of miRNA in the substantia nigra and striatum of Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) transgenic mice and wild type controls

Multiple system atrophy (MSA) is a fatal rapidly progressive α-synucleinopathy, characterized by prominent α-synuclein accumulation in oligodendrocytes. In this study we used Exiqon microarrays to investigate micro RNA expression in substantia nigra and striatum of MSA transgenic mice (Tg(Plp1-SNCA)1Haa) and wild type controls. This forms part of a larger study in which we investigated miRNA-mRNA regulatory network in substantia nagra and striatum of MSA transgenic mice in pre-motor stage of neurodegenration.
