Most of the exon deletion mutations were located in a region between intron 2 and intron 5, indicating this region may be mutation hot spots (Fig. 2D). , 1994). , 1996). , 1999). Furthermore, subcellular fractionation of brain tissues revealed that Parkin protein is mostly in the Golgi apparatus and cytosol and not in the nucleus. Thus, Parkin protein in PD patients is apparently involved in the Lewy body formation and proteasome pathway.
