Summaries for MAP3K1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAP3K1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a serine/threonine kinase and is part of some signal transduction cascades, including the ERK and JNK kinase pathways as well as the NF-kappa-B pathway. The encoded protein is activated by autophosphorylation and requires magnesium as a cofactor in phosphorylating other proteins. This protein has E3 ligase activity conferred by a plant homeodomain (PHD) in its N-terminus and phospho-kinase activity conferred by a kinase domain in its C-terminus. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

GeneCards Summary for MAP3K1 Gene

MAP3K1 (Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Kinase Kinase 1, E3 Ubiquitin Protein Ligase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAP3K1 include 46xy sex reversal 6 and 46,xy partial gonadal dysgenesis. Among its related pathways are PI-3K cascade and MAPK signaling pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and MAP kinase kinase kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MAP3K5.
