PINK1 in Human Brain. PINK1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human brain (cortex) using 15 µg/mL Rat Anti-Human PINK1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4357) overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody tissue was subjected to heat‑induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained with the Anti‑Rat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS017) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

PTEN-induced putative kinase 1 (PINK1) is a ubiquitous protein with highest levels in heart, skeletal muscle, and testis, and with lower expression in other tissues, including brain. PINK1 contains a mitochondrial targeting motif and a highly conserved protein kinase domain with strong homology to serine/threonine kinases of the calcium/calmodulin family. Mutations in the Pink1 gene have been identified as a cause of autosomal recessive early-onset parkinsonism.
