Summaries for MAP3K13 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAP3K13 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of serine/threonine protein kinase family. This kinase contains a dual leucine-zipper motif, and has been shown to form dimers/oligomers through its leucine-zipper motif. This kinase can phosphorylate and activate MAPK8/JNK, MAP2K7/MKK7, which suggests a role in the JNK signaling pathway. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MAP3K13 Gene

MAP3K13 (Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Kinase Kinase 13) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are MAPK signaling pathway and TGF-Beta Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and protein serine/threonine kinase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MAP3K9.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAP3K13 Gene

  • Activates the JUN N-terminal pathway through activation of the MAP kinase kinase MAP2K7. Acts synergistically with PRDX3 to regulate the activation of NF-kappa-B in the cytosol. This activation is kinase-dependent and involves activating the IKK complex, the IKBKB-containing complex that phosphorylates inhibitors of NF-kappa-B.
