Issue Information In this issue, Leah G. Helton, Eileen J. Kennedy & team discuss how constrained peptides can be developed to allosterically inhibit the pathogenic activity of Leucine Rich Repeat Kinase 2 (LRRK2). LRRK2 is a large, multi-domain protein kinase commonly mutated in Parkinson's Disease (PD). Pathogenic mutations within LRRK2 often induce increased kinase activity, an effect that can be abolished with small molecule inhibitors. Currently however, many of these inhibitors are limited by their toxicity. Given the complex nature of LRRK2, recent efforts have focused on resolving LRRK2 structures, as well as studying protein–protein interactions involving LRRK2 and how they contribute to PD.

Abstract

In this issue, Leah G. Helton, Eileen J. Kennedy & team discuss how constrained peptides can be developed to allosterically inhibit the pathogenic activity of Leucine Rich Repeat Kinase 2 (LRRK2). LRRK2 is a large, multi-domain protein kinase commonly mutated in Parkinson's Disease (PD). Pathogenic mutations within LRRK2 often induce increased kinase activity, an effect that can be abolished with small molecule inhibitors. Currently however, many of these inhibitors are limited by their toxicity. Given the complex nature of LRRK2, recent efforts have focused on resolving LRRK2 structures, as well as studying protein–protein interactions involving LRRK2 and how they contribute to PD.
