Parton distribution functions (PDFs) provide a detailed description of hadron structure and are crucial inputs in analyses of collider data. PDFs have a non-perturbative nature and Lattice QCD provides an appropriate framework of their extraction. We present results on the iso-vector quasi-quark distribution functions using an ensemble of $N_f=2$ degenerate light quarks in the twisted mass formulation, with pion mass 130MeV, lattice spacing a=0.093 fm and lattice size $48^3 \times 96$. We discuss the non-perturbative renormalization procedure and the matching to light-cone PDFs. An overlap between lattice and phenomenological data is found for a range of Bjorken-x values.
