2005) made use of definitive null alleles of the Drosophila DJ-1 gene family, the alleles used by Menzies et al. , 2005). The more severe phenotypes resulting from RNAi-mediated knockdown of DJ-1 activity relative to null alleles of DJ-1 cannot be readily explained by a hypomorphic effect of RNAi. These conflicting results are better explained by a possible 1. Drosophila Models of Parkinson’s Disease 25 developmental compensation to loss of DJ-1 in null animals relative to the acute loss of DJ-1 activity in RNAi treated animals later in development, or to an unexpected off-target effect of the DJ-1 RNAi constructs.

2010). An important challenge of future work will be to discern between the myriad biological functions ascribed to this protein family to define the mechanism by which loss of DJ-1 function protects against neuron loss, but it seems most likely that the major contribution of DJ-1 is in the response to oxidative stress to maintain mitochondrial integrity. , 2010), hinting at a potential therapeutic benefit of antioxidants. C. PINK1 Mutations in PINK1, which encodes a putative protein kinase, are a rare cause of recessive Parkinsonism, but has provided some significant insights into possible pathogenic mechanisms.

Our current understanding would indicate that there is no single pathogenic insult decreasing the likelihood of a single “magic bullet” disease-modifying therapy. More likely, such an intervention will need to consider multiple toxic events. However, the findings discussed here have already highlighted a few key regulators of important protective mechanisms. One could envisage a combined approach to activate the production of protective factors such as chaperone, antioxidant, and phase II detoxifying enzymes, perhaps through Nrf2or 4E-BP-mediated mechanisms, alongside damage removal processes by stimulation of autophagy.
