Blood-based biomarkers for Parkinson's disease.
Philadelphia, United States. In Parkinsonism Relat Disord, 31 Jan 2014
Blood-based biomarkers that are discussed include α-synuclein, DJ-1, uric acid, epidermal growth factor, apolipoprotein-A1, and peripheral inflammatory markers.
Genetics of Parkinson's disease: the yield.
Lausanne, Switzerland. In Parkinsonism Relat Disord, 31 Jan 2014
Monogenic causes include autosomal dominantly (SNCA, LRRK2, VPS35, EIF4G1) as well as recessively (PARK2, PINK1, DJ-1) inherited mutations.
The Role of Oxidative Stress in Parkinson's Disease.
United States. In J Parkinsons Dis, 19 Dec 2013
PD causing gene products including DJ-1, PINK1, parkin, alpha-synuclein and LRRK2 also impact in complex ways mitochondrial function leading to exacerbation of ROS generation and susceptibility to oxidative stress.
The genetics of Parkinson's disease: progress and therapeutic implications.
Bethesda, United States. In Mov Disord, Jan 2013
Notably, whereas most mutations, such as those in SNCA, PINK1, PARK2, PARK7, PLA2G6, FBXO7, and ATP13A2, are a rare cause of disease, one particular mutation in LRRK2 has been found to be common in certain populations.
Mitochondria in the aetiology and pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease.
London, United Kingdom. In Lancet Neurol, 2008
The proteins that are associated with familial PD--PTEN-induced putative kinase 1 (PINK1), DJ-1, alpha-synuclein, leucine-rich repeat kinase 2, and, possibly, parkin--are either mitochondrial proteins or are associated with mitochondria, and all interface with the pathways of oxidative stress and free radical damage.
London, United Kingdom. In Lancet, 2006
Recently identified nuclear gene mutations of mitochondrial proteins include mutations of frataxin causing Friedreich's ataxia, PINK1, DJ1 causing Parkinson's disease and POLG causing infantile mtDNA depletion syndrome, ophthalmoplegia, parkinsonism, male subfertility and, in a transgenic mouse model, premature senescence.
