Summaries for MOS Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MOS Gene

  • MOS is a serine/threonine kinase that activates the MAP kinase cascade through direct phosphorylation of the MAP kinase activator MEK (MAP2K1; MIM 176872) (Prasad et al., 2008 [PubMed 18246541]).[supplied by OMIM, Jul 2009]

GeneCards Summary for MOS Gene

MOS (V-Mos Moloney Murine Sarcoma Viral Oncogene Homolog) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MOS include sarcoma. Among its related pathways are Regulation of actin cytoskeleton and MAPK signaling pathway. 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 KSR1.
