Parkinson's disease proteins: Novel mitochondrial targets for cardioprotection.
Singapore, Singapore. In Pharmacol Ther, Dec 2015
In dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra, these PD proteins, which include Parkin, PINK1, DJ-1, LRRK2, and α-synuclein, play essential roles in preventing cell death-through maintaining normal mitochondrial function, protecting against oxidative stress, mediating mitophagy, and preventing apoptosis.
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.
