Figure 3

Expression of α- synuclein with and without parkin does not affect the external morphology of the eye. Scanning electron microscopy of flies that express α-synuclein with and without parkin shows no change in their external morphology over thirty days. Panels A-C represent one-day-old flies and panels D-F represent thirty-day-old flies. The genotypes are (A,D) w1118; UAS-α-synuclein/GMR-Gal4, (B,E) w1118; UAS-α-synuclein/GMR-Gal4; UAS-parkin1.1/+, and (C,F) w1118; UAS-α-synuclein/GMR-Gal4; UAS-parkin2.1/+. Scale bar indicates 200 μm.
