Background Information

TOR1A (torsin A), also known as DYT1, is a member of AAA+ family of ATPases that mediate chaperone and other functions involved in conformational modeling of proteins, protection from stress, and targeting of proteins to cellular organelles. TOR1A is a 37 kDa ATP binding protein highly expressed in hippocampus, spinal cord, kidney and liver. TOR1A primarily localizes to the ER while exposure to oxidative stress causes the redistribution to cell surface protrusions. Mutations in gene encoding TOR1A cause the most severe form of hereditary dystonia, termed early onset, generalized dystonia. Interestingly, Lewy bodies of PD patients were intensely immunoreactive for torsinA.
