Neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson and Alzheimer disease cause motor and cognitive dysfunction and belong to a heterogeneous group of common and disabling disorders. ATP13A2, otherwise known as PARK9, is a neuronal P-type ATPase gene underlying an autosomal recessive form of early-onset parkinsonism with pyramidal degeneration and dementia. ATP13A2 protein is located in the membrane of these lysosomes and is formed most strongly in the brain, especially in the substantia nigra, a brain region which is known to play a central role in Parkinson's disease.
