MAPK7

A gene on chromosome 17p11.2 that encodes a member of the MAP kinase family, which integrate multiple biochemical signals and are involved in cell proliferation, differentiation, transcription, regulation and development. MAPK7 is activated by MAPK kinase 5—which is formed from MAPK2K5 and MEK5; it translocates to the nucleus, undergoes phosphorylation and regulates gene expression.
