PINK1 (Q9BXM7) - Overview - Molecular Target Synopsis
PINK1, Serine/threonine-protein kinase PINK1, mitochondrial
Enzyme Classification 220.127.116.11
Also Known as PINK1_HUMAN, PINK1
Protects against mitochondrial dysfunction during cellular stress by phosphorylating mitochondrial proteins. Involved in the clearance of damaged mitochondria via selective autophagy (mitophagy) by mediating activation and translocation of PRKN (PubMed:14607334, PubMed:15087508, PubMed:19229105, PubMed:19966284, PubMed:20404107, PubMed:20798600, PubMed:23620051, PubMed:23754282, PubMed:23933751, PubMed:24660806, PubMed:24751536, PubMed:24784582, PubMed:24896179, PubMed:25527291). Targets PRKN to dysfunctional depolarized mitochondria through the phosphorylation of MFN2 (PubMed:23620051). Activates PRKN in 2 steps: (1) by mediating phosphorylation at 'Ser-65' of PRKN and (2) mediating phosphorylation of ubiquitin, converting PRKN to its fully-active form (PubMed:24660806, PubMed:24751536, PubMed:24784582, PubMed:25527291). Required for ubiquinone reduction by mitochondrial complex I by mediating phosphorylation of complex I subunit NDUFA10. Interacts with PRKN. Interacts with FBXO7. Forms a complex with PRKN and PARK7 (PubMed:19229105).
