PINK1 and Parkin Target Miro for Phosphorylation and Degradation to Arrest Mitochondrial Motility
Cells keep their energy balance and avoid oxidative stress by regulating mitochondrial movement, distribution, and clearance. We report here that two Parkinson's disease proteins, the Ser/Thr kinaseExpand

Guidelines for the use and interpretation of assays for monitoring autophagy (3rd edition)
In 2008 we published the first set of guidelines for standardizing research in autophagy. Since then, research on this topic has continued to accelerate, and many new scientists have entered theExpand

γ-Secretase is a membrane protein complex comprised of presenilin, nicastrin, aph-1, and pen-2
γ-Secretase catalyzes the intramembrane proteolysis of Notch, β-amyloid precursor protein, and other substrates as part of a new signaling paradigm and as a key step in the pathogenesis ofExpand

Dopamine Quinone Formation and Protein Modification Associated with the Striatal Neurotoxicity of Methamphetamine: Evidence against a Role for Extracellular Dopamine
Methamphetamine-induced toxicity has been shown to require striatal dopamine and to involve mechanisms associated with oxidative stress. Dopamine is a reactive molecule that can oxidize to form freeExpand

Mitophagy of damaged mitochondria occurs locally in distal neuronal axons and requires PINK1 and Parkin
The Parkinson’s disease–associated proteins PINK1 and Parkin mediate local mitophagy of dysfunctional mitochondria in distal neuronal axons, abrogating the need for retrograde organelle transport andExpand

The Notch ligands, Jagged and Delta, are sequentially processed by alpha-secretase and presenilin/gamma-secretase and release signaling fragments.
The cleavage of Notch by presenilin (PS)/gamma-secretase is a salient example of regulated intramembrane proteolysis, an unusual mechanism of signal transduction. This cleavage is preceded by theExpand

Microglial activation precedes dopamine terminal pathology in methamphetamine-induced neurotoxicity
Previous studies have demonstrated methamphetamine (METH)-induced toxicity to dopaminergic and serotonergic axons in rat striatum. Although several studies have identified the nature of reactiveExpand

The Notch Ligands, Jagged and Delta, Are Sequentially Processed by α-Secretase and Presenilin/γ-Secretase and Release Signaling Fragments*
The cleavage of Notch by presenilin (PS)/γ-secretase is a salient example of regulated intramembrane proteolysis, an unusual mechanism of signal transduction. This cleavage is preceded by the bindingExpand

Detergent-dependent dissociation of active gamma-secretase reveals an interaction between Pen-2 and PS1-NTF and offers a model for subunit organization within the complex.
Gamma-secretase is a member of a new class of proteases with an intramembrane catalytic site and cleaves numerous type I membrane proteins, including the amyloid beta-protein precursor (APP) and theExpand

gamma-Secretase cleavage and binding to FE65 regulate the nuclear translocation of the intracellular C-terminal domain (ICD) of the APP family of proteins.
Regulated intramembrane proteolysis (RIP) of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) produces amyloid beta-protein (Abeta), the probable causative agent of Alzheimer's disease (AD), and is therefore anExpand
