Target

  • FunctionProtects against mitochondrial dysfunction during cellular stress, potentially by phosphorylating mitochondrial proteins. Involved in the clearance of damaged mitochondria via selective autophagy (mitophagy). It is necessary for PARK2 recruitement to dysfunctional mitochondria to initiate their degradation.
  • Tissue specificityHighly expressed in heart, skeletal muscle and testis, and at lower levels in brain, placenta, liver, kidney, pancreas, prostate, ovary and small intestine. Present in the embryonic testis from an early stage of development.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in PINK1 are the cause of Parkinson disease type 6 (PARK6) [MIM:605909]. A neurodegenerative disorder characterized by parkinsonian signs such as rigidity, resting tremor and bradykinesia. A subset of patients manifest additional symptoms including hyperreflexia, autonomic instability, dementia and psychiatric disturbances. Symptoms show diurnal fluctuation and can improve after sleep.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Ser/Thr protein kinase family.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Autophosphorylated.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion outer membrane. Cytoplasm > cytosol.
