Abstract. Autosomal recessive, early onset parkinsonism (AREP) is genetically heterogeneous. Mutations in the parkin gene (PARK2 locus, chromosome 6q) account for up to 50% of AREP families. The parkin protein displays ubiquitin-ligase activity for different targets, which accumulate in the brain of patients with parkin defect and might cause neurodegeneration. Two new AREP loci (PARK6 and PARK7) have been recently mapped on chromosome 1p and confirmed in independent datasets, suggesting that… Expand
PINK1 mutations in a Brazilian cohort of early‐onset Parkinson's disease patients
TLDR
The hypothesis that mutations in PINK1 may not be a relevant cause of EOPD is supported, and it seems that parkin and LRRK2 mutations are more common in Brazil. Expand
Autosomal recessive, early-onset Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
The role of genetics versus environment in the etiology of PD has been a matter of debate for more than a century, with alternating fortunes. Expand
Genes Implicated in Familial Parkinson’s Disease Provide a Dual Picture of Nigral Dopaminergic Neurodegeneration with Mitochondria Taking Center Stage
TLDR
A map of the interactions between SNCA, the gene encoding for α-syn that aggregates in PD, and other genes, the mutations of which lead to early-onset PD are proposed. Expand
Analysis of an early‐onset Parkinson's disease cohort for DJ‐1 mutations
TLDR
Additional sequence variation in the DJ‐1 gene is identified, including a polymorphism in the coding region in exon 5 (R98Q), three polymorphisms in the 5′ untranslated region (exon 1A/1B), and two polymorphologies in intronic regions (IVS1 and IVS5). Expand
Molecular imaging in hereditary forms of parkinsonism
TLDR
Current data on molecular neuroimaging of genetic forms of parkinsonism is revised comparing and contrasting its main features with the classical sporadic forms, useful to distinguish different pathophysiological mechanisms of PD. Expand
PINK1/PARKIN signalling in neurodegeneration and neuroinflammation
TLDR
The role of mitochondrial dysfunction in disorders such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer's, Huntington’s and Parkinson's diseases, as well as eye diseases such as age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma, and the causative factors leading to PINK1/PARKIN-mediated neurodegeneration and neuroinflammation are debated.

Fidelity of the PINK1 Knockout Rat to Oxidative Stress and Other Characteristics of Parkinson Disease.
TLDR
All papers from PubMed that report studies with PINK1 KO rats, presenting the research results, and discussing the fidelity of this rat model to PD according to its phenotypes are reviewed to provide a better understanding of PD etiology, pathology, and potential treatment strategies. Expand
Regional lysosomal malfunction underlies the selectivity of alpha-synuclein neurodegeneration
Dysfunction of protein homoeostasis has been implicated in the pathogenesis of a diverse array of neurodegenerative disorders. However, each neurodegenerative disease is characterized by theExpand
Disruption of the autoinhibited state primes the E3 ligase parkin for activation and catalysis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the addition of phosphoubiquitin leads to displacement of the Ubl domain through loss of structure, unveiling a ubiquitin‐binding site used by the E2~Ub conjugate, thus leading to active parkin. Expand
Parkinson's disease genetic mutations increase cell susceptibility to stress: Mutant α-synuclein enhances H2O2- and Sin-1-induced cell death
TLDR
It is found that inducible expression of A30P or A53T mutant α-synuclein decreased the proteasome activity, increased intracellular ROS levels, and enhanced lactacystin- and H2O2-induced cell death, and genetic mutations in α- synuclein may increase neuronal vulnerability to cellular stress in aging and PD pathogenesis.

Localization of autosomal recessive early‐onset parkinsonism to chromosome 1p36 (PARK7) in an independent dataset
TLDR
Location of autosomal recessive early‐onset parkinsonism to PARK7 is confirmed, suggesting it to be a frequent locus, and assignment of families to either PARK6 or PARK7 might be difficult because of the proximity of the two loci on chromosome 1p. Expand
Localization of a novel locus for autosomal recessive early-onset parkinsonism, PARK6, on human chromosome 1p35-p36.
TLDR
A large Sicilian family with four definitely affected members (the Marsala kindred) was identified, characterized by early-onset parkinsonism, with slow progression and sustained response to levodopa, and the Parkin-associated phenotype is broad, and some cases are indistinguishable from idiopathic PD. Expand
Park7, a novel locus for autosomal recessive early-onset parkinsonism, on chromosome 1p36.
TLDR
It is concluded that on chromosome 1 a second locus, PARK7, involved in autosomal recessive, early-onset parkinsonism is identified. Expand
Mutations in the parkin gene cause autosomal recessive juvenile parkinsonism
TLDR
Mutations in the newly identified gene appear to be responsible for the pathogenesis of Autosomal recessive juvenile parkinsonism, and the protein product is named ‘Parkin’. Expand
Lewy bodies and parkinsonism in families with parkin mutations
TLDR
The data suggest that compound heterozygous parkin mutations and loss of parkin protein may lead to early‐onset parkinsonism with Lewy body pathology, while a hemizygous mutation may confer increased susceptibility to typical Parkinson's disease. Expand
Park6‐linked parkinsonism occurs in several european families
TLDR
Features typical of autosomal recessive juvenile parkinsonism, including dystonia at onset and sleep benefit, were not observed in PARK6‐linked families, thus making the clinical presentation of late‐onset cases indistinguishable from idiopathic Parkinson's disease. Expand
Pseudo-dominant inheritance and exon 2 triplication in a family with parkin gene mutations
TLDR
P pseudo-dominant inheritance of parkin gene mutations has to be considered in early-onset parkinsonism, and sensitive screening techniques, such as semiquantitative multiplex PCR, should be applied. Expand
Ubiquitination of a New Form of α-Synuclein by Parkin from Human Brain: Implications for Parkinson's Disease
TLDR
It is concluded that αSp22 is a substrate for parkin's ubiquitin ligase activity in normal human brain and that loss of parkin function causes pathologicalαSp22 accumulation in conventional PD brains. Expand
An Unfolded Putative Transmembrane Polypeptide, which Can Lead to Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress, Is a Substrate of Parkin
TLDR
It is shown that the unfolded Pael receptor is a substrate of Parkin, the accumulation of which may cause selective neuronal death in AR-JP. Expand
