Summaries for MAP3K8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAP3K8 Gene

  • This gene is an oncogene that encodes a member of the serine/threonine protein kinase family. The encoded protein localizes to the cytoplasm and can activate both the MAP kinase and JNK kinase pathways. This protein was shown to activate IkappaB kinases, and thus induce the nuclear production of NF-kappaB. This protein was also found to promote the production of TNF-alpha and IL-2 during T lymphocyte activation. This gene may also utilize a downstream in-frame translation start codon, and thus produce an isoform containing a shorter N-terminus. The shorter isoform has been shown to display weaker transforming activity. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants that encode the same protein. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2011]

GeneCards Summary for MAP3K8 Gene

MAP3K8 (Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Kinase Kinase 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAP3K8 include lung cancer and ewing sarcoma. Among its related pathways are MAPK signaling pathway and Class I MHC mediated antigen processing and presentation. GO annotations related to this gene include protein serine/threonine kinase activity and MAP kinase kinase kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MAP3K5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAP3K8 Gene

  • Required for lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced, TLR4-mediated activation of the MAPK/ERK pathway in macrophages, thus being critical for production of the proinflammatory cytokine TNF-alpha (TNF) during immune responses. Involved in the regulation of T-helper cell differentiation and IFNG expression in T-cells. Involved in mediating host resistance to bacterial infection through negative regulation of type I interferon (IFN) production. In vitro, activates MAPK/ERK pathway in response to IL1 in an IRAK1-independent manner, leading to up-regulation of IL8 and CCL4. Transduces CD40 and TNFRSF1A signals that activate ERK in B-cells and macrophages, and thus may play a role in the regulation of immunoglobulin production. May also play a role in the transduction of TNF signals that activate JNK and NF-kappa-B in some cell types. In adipocytes, activates MAPK/ERK pathway in an IKBKB-dependent manner in response to IL1B and TNF, but not insulin, leading to induction of lipolysis. Plays a role in the cell cycle. Isoform 1 shows some transforming activity, although it is much weaker than that of the activated oncogenic variant.

    Molecular mass:
    52925 Da
    Cofactor:
    Name=Mg(2+); Xref=ChEBI:CHEBI:18420;
    Quaternary structure:
    • Forms a ternary complex with NFKB1/p105 and TNIP2. Interacts with NFKB1; the interaction increases the stability of MAP3K8 but inhibits its MEK phosphorylation activity, whereas loss of interaction following LPS stimulation leads to its degradation. Interacts with CD40 and TRAF6; the interaction is required for ERK activation. Interacts with KSR2; the interaction inhibits ERK and NF-kappa-B activation.
    Miscellaneous:
    • Can be converted to an oncogenic protein by proviral activation, leading to a C-terminally truncated protein with transforming activity

Post-translational modifications for MAP3K8 Gene

  • Autophosphorylated. Isoform 1 undergoes phosphorylation mainly on Ser residues, and isoform 2 on both Ser and Thr residues. Thr-290 is autophosphorylated (PubMed:19754427) and/or transphosphorylated (PubMed:15466476); the phosphorylation is necessary but not sufficient for full kinase activity in vitro and for the dissociation of isoform 1 from NFKB1, leading to its degradation. Ser-400 is autophosphorylated (PubMed:19754427) and/or transphosphorylated by IKBKB (PubMed:22988300); the phosphorylation is required for LPS-stimulated activation of the MAPK/ERK pathway in macrophages.
