Parkinson's disease (PD) is a multifactorial disease that appears to arise from the effects of both genetic and environmental influences. The known genetic factors include multiple genes that have been identified in related parkinsonian syndromes, as well as alpha-synuclein. Genes associated with either PD or Parkinson-related disorders include parkin, DJ-1, ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase isozyme L1 (UCH-L1), nuclear receptor-related factor 1 (NURR1), and alpha-synuclein. Nurr1 is a transcription factor that is expressed in the embryonic ventral midbrain and is critical for the development of dopamine (DA) neurons. It belongs to the conserved family of nuclear receptors but lacks an identified ligand and is therefore referred to as an orphan receptor. RXR ligands can promote the survival of DA neurons via a process that depends on Nurr1-RXR heterodimers. In developing DA cells, Nurr1 is required for the expression of several genes important for DA synthesis and function. Nurr1 is also important for the maintenance of adult DA neurons.
