Positively regulates autophagy through a calcium-dependent activation of the CaMKK/AMPK signaling pathway. The process involves activation of nicotinic acid adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NAADP) receptors, increase in lysosomal pH, and calcium release from lysosomes. Together with RAB29, plays a role in the retrograde trafficking pathway for recycling proteins, such as mannose 6 phosphate receptor (M6PR), between lysosomes and the Golgi apparatus in a retromer-dependent manner. Regulates neuronal process morphology in the intact central nervous system (CNS). Plays a role in synaptic vesicle trafficking. Phosphorylates PRDX3. Has GTPase activity. May play a role in the phosphorylation of proteins central to Parkinson disease.
Expressed in the brain. Expressed in pyramidal neurons in all cortical laminae of the visual cortex, in neurons of the substantia nigra pars compacta and caudate putamen (at protein level). Expressed throughout the adult brain, but at a lower level than in heart and liver. Also expressed in placenta, lung, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. In the brain, expressed in the cerebellum, cerebral cortex, medulla, spinal cord occipital pole, frontal lobe, temporal lobe and putamen. Expression is particularly high in brain dopaminoceptive areas.
Involvement in disease
Parkinson disease 8
Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. TKL Ser/Thr protein kinase family. Contains 12 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats. Contains 1 protein kinase domain. Contains 1 Roc domain. Contains 7 WD repeats.
The seven-bladed WD repeat region is critical for synaptic vesicle trafficking and mediates interaction with multiple vesicle-associated presynaptic proteins. The Roc domain mediates homodimerization and regulates kinase activity.
Membrane. Cytoplasm. Perikaryon. Mitochondrion. Golgi apparatus. Cell projection, axon. Cell projection, dendrite. Endoplasmic reticulum. Cytoplasmic vesicle, secretory vesicle, synaptic vesicle membrane. Endosome. Lysosome. Mitochondrion outer membrane. Mitochondrion inner membrane. Mitochondrion matrix. Predominantly associated with intracytoplasmic vesicular and membranous structures (By similarity). Localized in the cytoplasm and associated with cellular membrane structures. Predominantly associated with the mitochondrial outer membrane of the mitochondria. Colocalized with RAB29 along tubular structures emerging from Golgi apparatus. Localizes in intracytoplasmic punctate structures of neuronal perikarya and dendritic and axonal processes.
Western blot - Anti-LRRK2 antibody [MJFF2 (c41-2)] - BSA and Azide free (ab172378)
This WB data was generated using the same anti-LRRK2 antibody clone, MJFF2 (c41-2), in a different buffer formulation (cat# ab133474).
Lane 1: Wild type A549 whole cell lysate (20 µg) Lane 2: Wild type MEF whole cell lysate (20 µg) Lane 3: LRRK2 knockout A549 whole cell lysate (20 µg) Lane 4: LRRK2 knockout MEF whole cell lysate (20 µg)
Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab133474 observed at 286 kDa. Red - loading control, ab18058, observed at 130 kDa.
ab133474 was shown to recognize LRRK2 in wild type A549 and MEF cells along with additional cross reative bands. Whilst signal was not seen in LRRK2 knockout cells. Wild-type and LRRK2 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab133474 and ab18058 (Mouse anti Vinculin loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 10000 dilution and 1/10000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
Wild-type and LRRK2 knockout MEF and A549 cells were provide as a generous gift from Professor Dario Alessi, MRC Protein Phosphorylation and Ubiquitination Unit (University of Dundee).
This IHC data was generated using the same anti-LRRK2 antibody clone, MJFF2 (c41-2), in a different buffer formulation (cat# ab133474).
Immunohistochemical analysis of mouse brain tissue, staining LRRK2 with ab133474.
Antigen retrieval was performed by heat mediation and tissue was blocked with 2% goat serum. Sections were incubated with primary antibody (1/200) overnight at 4°C. An AlexaFluor®488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody.
