PTEN Induced Kinase 1 is encoded by the gene PINK1. PINK1 is a member of the protein kinase superfamily, Ser/Thr protein kinase family. PINK1 is a serine/threonine protein kinase that protects against mitochondrial dysfunction during cellular stress by phosphorylating mitochondrial proteins. PINK1 is highly expressed in the heart, skeletal muscle, and testis. Diseases associated with PINK1 include Parkinson Disease 6, Autosomal Recessive Early-Onset and Parkinson Disease 2, Autosomal Recessive Juvenile.
