MAP kinase

MAP kinase

Any of a family of serine/threonine protein kinases belonging to the CMGC (CDK/MAPK/GSK3/CLK) kinase group, which are involved in cellular responses to various stimuli (e.g., mitogens, osmotic stress, heat shock and cytokines) and regulate cell growth, cycling, differentiation, mitosis and apoptosis.

Ras sits at the cell membrane and receives incoming signals, then passes them along to Raf and Mek, which process and amplify them, until finally, Erk (also called MAP Kinase or MAPK) transports the signal into the cell nucleus, where it can activate the appropriate genetic programs.
Several potential therapeutic targets were revealed such as Growth Regulation by Estrogen in Breast Cancer1 (GREB1), MAP kinase interacting serine/threonine-protein kinase 1 (MKNK1) and Emopamil Binding Protein (EBP) that can be utilised in the development of new therapies."
