MAP kinase


MAP kinase
(= mitogen-activated protein kinase; externally regulated kinase, ERK)
Serine-threonine kinases that are activated when quiescent cells are treated with mitogens, and that therefore potentially transmit the signal for entry into cell cycle. One target is trancription factor p62TCF. MAP kinase itself can be phosphorylated by MAP kinase kinase and this may in turn be controlled by raf-1. Confusingly, also phosphorylate microtubule associated proteins.
