PARK6 mutations affect PTEN induced putative kinase 1 (PINK1), a mitochondrial serine-threonine kinase. Affected individuals show early disease onset, slow progression, and good therapeutic response to levodopa. PINK1 is regulated at multiple levels and functions to maintain mitochondrial integrity under conditions of oxidative stress and proteasomal dysfunction via interactions with TNF receptor associated protein 1 (TRAP1), DJ-1, and HtrA2 (PARK13).
