LRRK2 (human)

LRRK2 a large multidomain protein kinase with a TKL-type kinase domain, multiple protein-protein interaction domains and a mitochondrial Rho domain (MIRO). May play a role in the etiology of Parkinson disease. May also have GTPase activity. 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. Interacts with PARK2, PRDX3 and TPCN2. Expressed throughout the adult brain, but at a lower level than in heart and liver. 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. Defects in LRRK2 are the cause of Parkinson disease type 8 (PARK8). A slowly progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by bradykinesia, rigidity, resting tremor, postural instability, neuronal loss in the substantia nigra, and the presence of neurofibrillary MAPT (tau)-positive and Lewy bodies in some patients.
