iPS models of Parkin and PINK1.
Lübeck, Germany. In Biochem Soc Trans, 01 May 2015
Recessively inherited Parkin and PTEN-induced putative kinase 1 (PINK1) mutations have been investigated in this context and the present review describes the first insights gained from studies in iPSC-derived dopaminergic neurons, which comprise abnormalities in mitochondrial and dopamine homoeostasis, microtubular stability and axonal outgrowth.
PINK1/Parkin-mediated mitophagy in mammalian cells.
Suita, Japan. In Curr Opin Cell Biol, 16 Mar 2015
In mammalian cells, the Ser/Thr kinase PINK1 and the E3 ubiquitin ligase Parkin act cooperatively in sensing mitochondrial functional state and marking damaged mitochondria for disposal via the autophagy pathway.
[CK2beta promotes Pink1/Parkin-mediated MIRO1 degradation].
In Sheng Wu Yi Xue Gong Cheng Xue Za Zhi, Dec 2014
PTEN-induced putative kinase 1 (PINK1), a Parkinson's disease (PD)-related protein, has two isoforms, the mitochondria-localized full-length isoform PINK1FL and the cytoplasm-localized short isoform PINK1-cyto.
The mitochondrial deubiquitinase USP30 opposes parkin-mediated mitophagy.
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.
