|PINK1: Promoting Organelle Stability and Preventing Parkinson's disease
PINK1 is a protein serine/threonine kinase (PTK) that protects the organelles from cellular stress and controls selective autophagy to clear damage. Exner, et. al. were among the first to report that PINK1 deficiency in humans was linked t... Read more.
|PINK1: Linking Mitochondrial Health and Parkinson's disease
Parkinson's disease is a degenerative disorder of the central nervous system, which involves the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the brain and gives rise to tremors, rigidity and slowness of movement. In the majority of cases there is no k... Read more.
|PINK1: A Critical Player in Mitophagy
PINK1 (PTEN-induced putative kinase 1) is a mitochondrial directed serine-threonine kinase, that regulates normal mitochondrial function and transport vital to normal performance of neurons and neuronal survival. PINK1 has been shown to be... Read more.
