Title: PRKN (arkin RBR E3 ubiquitin protein ligase )
Author: La, Cognata, Valentina; Cavallaro, Sebastiano
Abstract: PARK2 (also known as Parkin RBR E3 ubiquitin protein ligase) is one of the largest genes in our genome. It undergoes an extensive alternative splicing both at transcript and protein level, producing multiple transcript variants and distinct protein isoforms. The precise function of PARK2 is still not clear; however, the encoded protein is a component of a multiprotein E3 ubiquitin ligase complex that mediates the targeting of substrates for proteasomal degradation. Mutations in this gene cause Parkinson disease and autosomal recessive juvenile Parkinson disease. Further molecular defects have been linked to other human malignancies. Here, we review some major data on PARK2, concerning the genetic structure, the transcription regulation, the encoded protein and functions, and its implication in human diseases
