The C289G mutation of the parkin E3-ubiquitin protein ligase (PARK2) is associated with autosomal recessive juvenile onset Parkinson's disease and was found to be associated with protein aggregation. Members of the human small heat shock proteins (HSPBs) have been implicated in protein degradation and prevention of protein aggregation. In this study, we(More)
