Parkin in Human Brain. Parkin was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain (cerebellum) using 15 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human Parkin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1438) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Parkin is a 465 amino acid protein with an N-terminal ubiquitin-like domain, a linker region, a C-terminal TRIAD domain consisting of two RING finger motifs flanking a cysteine-rich IBR (in between RING fingers) motif. Mutations in Parkin is a major cause of autosomal recessive juvenile parkinsonism. Parkin-2 lacks exon 5 which encodes amino acid residues 179-206 of Parkin.
