  • General notes

    In recent years, a critical need in the Parkinson's Disease (PD) research community has been access to well-characterized antibodies that can be used to efficiently detect and purify Leucine-Rich Repeat Kinase 2 (LRRK2) protein. The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) has supported this effort by partnering with Dr. Dario Alessi (MRC Protein Phosphorylation Unit, University of Dundee) to help accelerate LRRK2 research. Dr. Alessi has characterized unique and high quality LRRK2 rabbit monoclonal antibodies, generated by Epitomics, to be made widely available for PD research community.

    LRRK2 (Leucine-rich repeat kinase 2, dardarin) is a multi-domain protein belonging to the ROCO family of proteins that contains a kinase and GTPase domain among its many protein interaction domains. LRRK2 is mutated in a significant number of Parkinson's disease (PD) patients. Mutations in this gene account for 4% of PD, and are observed in 1% of sporadic PD patients. The most common mutation replaces glycine 2019 with a serine that results in increased LRRK2 kinase activity. This indicates that inhibitors of LRRK2 kinase activity might be of therapeutic benefit for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and has stimulated much activity in this field of research.

    The Dundee-MJFF LRRK2[100-500] total antibody will be of great utility in further understanding LRRK2 as it relates to Parkinson’s disease. It should be noted this antibody is highly selective and sensitive and can readily be used to monitor LRRK2 protein levels in immunoblot analysis of 2-20 microgram amounts of whole cell extract. The LRRK2[100-500] total antibody recognizes both mouse and human endogenous LRRK2.

  • Target

    • Function

      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.
    • Tissue specificity

      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
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. TKL Ser/Thr protein kinase family.

      Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
      Contains 1 Roc domain.
      Contains 7 WD repeats.
    • Domain

      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.
