Summaries for MAPK4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAPK4 Gene

  • Mitogen-activated protein kinase 4 is a member of the mitogen-activated protein kinase family. Tyrosine kinase growth factor receptors activate mitogen-activated protein kinases which then translocate into the nucleus and phosphorylate nuclear targets. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2014]

GeneCards Summary for MAPK4 Gene

MAPK4 (Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAPK4 include pulmonary immaturity. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Integrated Pancreatic Cancer Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and protein kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MAPK1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAPK4 Gene

  • Atypical MAPK protein. Phosphorylates microtubule-associated protein 2 (MAP2) and MAPKAPK5. The precise role of the complex formed with MAPKAPK5 is still unclear, but the complex follows a complex set of phosphorylation events: upon interaction with atypical MAPKAPK5, ERK4/MAPK4 is phosphorylated at Ser-186 and then mediates phosphorylation and activation of MAPKAPK5, which in turn phosphorylates ERK4/MAPK4. May promote entry in the cell cycle (By similarity).
