Summaries for MAP3K14 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MAP3K14 Gene

  • This gene encodes mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase 14, which is a serine/threonine protein-kinase. This kinase binds to TRAF2 and stimulates NF-kappaB activity. It shares sequence similarity with several other MAPKK kinases. It participates in an NF-kappaB-inducing signalling cascade common to receptors of the tumour-necrosis/nerve-growth factor (TNF/NGF) family and to the interleukin-1 type-I receptor.

GeneCards Summary for MAP3K14 Gene

MAP3K14 (Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase Kinase Kinase 14) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MAP3K14 include Nik Deficiency and Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are T cell receptor signaling pathway and Bacterial infections in CF airways. Gene Ontology (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 MAP3K2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MAP3K14 Gene

  • Lymphotoxin beta-activated kinase which seems to be exclusively involved in the activation of NF-kappa-B and its transcriptional activity. Promotes proteolytic processing of NFKB2/P100, which leads to activation of NF-kappa-B via the non-canonical pathway. Could act in a receptor-selective manner.

Post-translational modifications for MAP3K14 Gene

  • Autophosphorylated. Phosphorylation at Thr-559 is required to activates its kinase activity and Lys-63-linked polyubiquitination. Phosphorylated by CHUK/IKKA leading to MAP3K14 destabilization.
  • Ubiquitinated. Undergoes both Lys-48- and Lys-63-linked polyubiquitination. Lys-48-linked polyubiquitination leads to its degradation by the proteasome, while Lys-63-linked polyubiquitination stabilizes and activates it.
  • Ubiquitination at isoforms=106
  • Modification sites at PhosphoSitePlus
