Phosphatase and Tensin Homolog (PTEN) dephosphorylates lipids. Malfunctions in this contribute to many human cancers. PTEN induced putative kinase 1 (Pink1) was first discovered when researching the PTEN signaling pathway, thus Pink1 is also involved in many human cancers. It is found in the mitochondria and its homozygous C-terminus mutation has been implicated in the early development of Parkinson's disease.
