Parkinson protein 2, E3 ubiquitin protein ligase

E3 ubiquitin ligase, Parkin, PARK2
The precise function of this gene is unknown; however, the encoded protein is a component of a multiprotein E3 ubiquitin ligase complex that mediates the targeting of substrate proteins for proteasomal degradation. Mutations in this gene are known to cause Parkinson disease and autosomal recessive juvenile Parkinson disease. Alternative splicing of this gene produces multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. Additional splice variants of this gene have been described but currently lack transcript support.

The mitochondrial deubiquitinase USP30 opposes parkin-mediated mitophagy.
New
Impact
Sheng et al., San Francisco, United States. In Nature, Jul 2014
Here we report that USP30, a deubiquitinase localized to mitochondria, antagonizes mitophagy driven by the ubiquitin ligase parkin (also known as PARK2) and protein kinase PINK1, which are encoded by two genes associated with Parkinson's disease.
Ubiquitin is phosphorylated by PINK1 to activate parkin.

Review
New
Dawson et al., Baltimore, United States. In Trends Neurosci, Jun 2014
In support of this theory, data from multiple PD models have linked Phosphatase and tensin homolog (PTEN)-induced putative kinase 1 (PINK1) and parkin, two recessive PD genes, in a common pathway impacting mitochondrial health, prompting a flurry of research to identify their mitochondrial targets.
Pan-cancer genetic analysis identifies PARK2 as a master regulator of G1/S cyclins.

Impact
Chan et al., New York City, United States. In Nat Genet, Jun 2014
The PARK2 E3 ubiquitin ligase coordinately controls the stability of both cyclin D and cyclin E. Analysis of approximately 5,000 tumor genomes shows that PARK2 is a very frequently deleted gene in human cancer and uncovers a striking pattern of mutual exclusivity between PARK2 deletion and amplification of CCND1, CCNE1 or CDK4-implicating these genes in a common pathway.

Review

Dorszewska et al., In Przegl Lek, Dec 2013
It is believed, that causes of PD are both environmental and genetic factors, associated mainly with mutations in the SNCA and PRKN genes, which may lead to changes in the structure of proteins such as alpha-synuclein (ASN) and Parkin.

Although loss-of-function mutations in the PARK2 gene, the gene that encodes the protein parkin, cause autosomal recessive juvenile parkinsonism, the responsible molecular mechanisms remain unclear.
