Species-specific description: Niu et al. (2015): "We established transgenic PD [Parkinson's disease] rhesus monkeys that express mutant α-syn (A53T). Six transgenic A53T monkeys were produced via lentiviral vector expressing A53T in fertilized monkey eggs and subsequent embryo transfer to surrogates. Transgenic A53T is expressed in the monkey brain and causes age-dependent non-motor symptoms, including cognitive defects and anxiety phenotype, without detectable sleeping disorders."

This phene includes references to studies involving genetically modified organisms (GMO).
