Mutations in the LRRK2 gene have been implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease. This work provides biochemical evidence that the ROC domain of LRRK2 functions as a small GTPase, and the Parkinson's disease-associated mutants do not appear to have reduced GTP hydrolysis activities.

Keywords: GTP binding; LRRK2; Parkinson's disease; ROC domain; small GTPase

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
