Nearly 20 years have passed since we identified the causative gene for a familial Parkinson’s disease, parkin (now known as PARK2), in 1998. PARK2 is the most common gene responsible for young-onset Parkinson’s disease. It codes for the protein Parkin RBR E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase (PARK2), which directly links to the ubiquitin-proteasome as a ubiquitin ligase. PARK2 is involved in mitophagy, which is a type of autophagy, in collaboration with PTEN-induced putative kinase 1 (PINK1). The PINK1… CONTINUE READING
