Summaries for MAP3K2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAP3K2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of serine/threonine protein kinase family. This kinase preferentially activates other kinases involved in the MAP kinase signaling pathway. This kinase has been shown to directly phosphorylate and activate Ikappa B kinases, and thus plays a role in NF-kappa B signaling pathway. This kinase has also been found to bind and activate protein kinase C-related kinase 2, which suggests its involvement in a regulated signaling process. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MAP3K2 Gene

MAP3K2 (Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Kinase Kinase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Sertoli-Sertoli Cell Junction Dynamics and ErbB1 downstream signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring phosphorus-containing groups and protein tyrosine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MAP3K19.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAP3K2 Gene

  • Component of a protein kinase signal transduction cascade. Regulates the JNK and ERK5 pathways by phosphorylating and activating MAP2K5 and MAP2K7 (By similarity). Plays a role in caveolae kiss-and-run dynamics.
