This antibody was developed with support of The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) with the assistance of a consortium of investigators to help accelerate LRRK2 research.
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. Based upon mass spectrometry findings, a number of other residues within LRRK2 have also been found to be phosphorylated as well.
It is of note that phosphorylation of Serine 955 is not thought to be the result of autophosphorylation of the kinase though currently, the physiological relevance of these phospho-sites is not clear. Thus with the generation of this phospho-specific antibody, it is MJFF's hope that investigators may have at hand a critical tool to assist in their research endeavors that might thereby lend further clarity to the field of LRRK2 and its role in PD pathogenesis.

FunctionPositively 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 specificityExpressed 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.
