Biochem/physiol Actions

MEKK2 (also known as mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) kinase kinase 2) is a major upstream activator of the JNK/MAPK cascade. MEKK2 can mediate in vitro phosphorylation of MKK4 and MKK7 which are key MAPKs that activate JNK. In addition, MEKK2 immunoprecipitates activated JUN in an IL1-dependent manner. Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis synovial tissues show high levels of MEKK2 indicating that it may be an important activator of the JNK pathway in arthritis. Endogenous MEKK2 is localized mainly in the cytosol of unstimulated cells.

Mitogen-activated protein/ERK kinase kinases (MEKKs) phosphorylate and activate protein kinases which in turn phosphorylate and activate the p42/44 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), c-Jun/stress-activated protein kinases (JNKs), and p38/Hog1 kinase. We have isolated the cDNAs for two novel mammalian MEKKs (MEKK...

The mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNK) is a critical regulator of collagenase-1 production in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). The MAPKs are regulated by upstream kinases, including MAPK kinases (MAPKKs) and MAPK kinase kinases (MAP3Ks). The present study was...

NDR/LATS kinase family is highly conserved from yeast to human. It remains unknown whether the members of this family function in innate immune responses. Here we demonstrate that Stk38 negatively regulates TLR9-mediated immune responses in macrophages. Stk38 constitutively associates with...
