Technical Data
MAP Kinase, p38, phosphorylated (Thr180/Tyr182) (MapK14, Mitogen-activated Protein Kinase p38 alpha, Mitogen-activated Protein Kinase 14, CRK1, CSBP1, CSBP2)
p38 MAP kinase (MAPK), also called RK or CSBP, is the mammalian orthologue of the yeast HOG kinase which participates in a signaling cascade controlling cellular responses to cytokines and stress. Four isoforms of p38 MAP kinase, p38a, b and g (also known as ERK6 or SAPK3) and delta (also known as SAPK4) have been identified. Similar to the SAPK/JNK pathway, p38 MAP kinase is activated by a variety of cellular stresses including osmotic shock, inflammatory cytokines, lipopolysaccharides LPS), UV light and growth factors. MKK3, MKK6 and SEK activate p38 MAP kinase by phosphorylation at Thr180 and Tyr182. Activated p38 MAP kinase has been shown to phosphorylate and activate MAPKAP kinase 2 (3) and to phosphorylate the transcription factors ATF-2, Max and MEF2.
