FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The precise function of this gene is unknown; however, the encoded protein is a component of a multiprotein E3 ubiquitin ligase complex that mediates the targeting of substrate proteins for proteasomal degradation. Mutations in this gene are known to cause Parkinson disease and autosomal recessive juvenile Parkinson disease. Alternative splicing of this gene produces multiple transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms. Additional splice variants of this gene have been described but currently lack transcript support.

PHENOTYPE: Dopamine and glutatamate transmission are impaired in some targeted null mice, resulting in decreased exploratory behavior. These mice show decreased body weight and temperature. Park2 is inactivated as part of a large deletion in the quaking mouse, a dysmyelinating mutant with a pronounced tremor. [provided by MGI curators]
