MAPK14

A gene on chromosome 6p21.3-p21.2 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. MAPK14 is phosphorylated and activated by MAP kinases or autophosphorylated by interaction with MAP3K7IP1/TAB1 protein.

MAPK14 substrates
Transcription regulator ATF2, cell cycle regulator CDC25B and tumour suppressor p53, suggesting that MAPK14 has a role in stress-related transcription and cell cycle regulation, as well as in
genotoxic stress response.
