Chapter 4 Current Problems and Strategies in Motor Rehabilitation for Parkinson’s Disease Giovanni Abbruzzese, Elisa Pelosin, and Roberta Marchese Introduction Idiopathic Parkinson’s disease (PD) can be defined pathologically by the loss of dopaminergic neurons in the pars compacta of the substantia nigra (with the presence of intracytoplasmic neuronal inclusions, the Lewy bodies) and clinically by some combination of rest tremor, rigidity, bradykinesia, and loss of postural reflexes [1].

Polyubiquitin chains are formed by repeated reactions through which another ubiquitin links a lysine residue at position 48 of the ubiquitin protein. Ubiquitin has seven lysine residues. A polyubiquitin chain formed via lysine at position 48 mainly becomes a marker for proteolytic attack by the 26S proteasome. Lysine 63-linked polyubiquitylation and monoubiquitylation without the formation of a ubiquitin tree have many biological roles other than proteolysis, such as endocytosis, DNA repair, translation, IkB activation, DNA silencing, virus budding, protein sorting, and protein trafficking [24].

Therefore, in the presence of mutated parkin proteins, accumulation of parkin-substrate proteins is expected to be the major cause of nigral neuronal death. To date, however, there is no clear immunohistochemical evidence to indicate accumulation of parkin-substrates despite the fact that many parkin-interacting proteins have been reported, such as CDCrel-1 [25], glycosylated alpha-synuclein [26], PAEL receptor [27], and synphilin-1 [28]. 2 Neurogenetics in PD 11 Therefore, other mechanisms may be operating for nigral degeneration in PARK2.
