Interaction Information:

Comment Cells expressing exogenous wild-type PINK1 were much more resistant to H(2)O(2)-induced cell death. The pathogenic PINK1 mutation W437X significantly reduced the ability of PINK1 to protect against cell death and pathogenic mutations G309D and L347P not only abolished, but also exacerbated oxidative-stress-induced cell death.
