Mutations in the LRRK2 gene have been implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinsons disease. This work provides biochemical evidence that the ROC domain of LRRK2 functions as a small GTPase, and the Parkinsons disease-associated mutants do not appear to have reduced GTP hydrolysis activities.

Keywords: LRRK2, ROC domain, small GTPase, GTP binding, Parkinson's disease
