This biomarker is also known as:
  • Parkinson disease (autosomal recessive, early onset) 7,
  • Protein DJ-1,
  • DJ1,
  • DJ-1,
  • Oncogene DJ-1,
  • Parkinson disease protein 7,
  • PARK7,


DJ-1, also known as PARK-7, belongs to the peptidase C56 family of proteins. It acts as a positive regulator of androgen receptor-dependent transcription. It may also function as a redox-sensitive chaperone, as a sensor for oxidative stress, and it apparently protects neurons against oxidative stress and cell death. DJ-1 is highly expressed in pancreas, kidney, skeletal muscle, liver, testis and heart and is detected at slightly lower levels in placenta and brain.
