Parkinson’s Protein Fights TB, Leprosy
Parkin is a well-known player in Parkinson’s disease – mutations in the protein, in fact, are the most common cause of familial Parkinson’s. The protein functions in mitochondrial quality control, tagging damaged mitochondria with ubiquitin for destruction by the autophagosome – a process that goes by the name mitophagy.
