Technical Data
MAP Kinase p63 (MAP Kinase Isoform p63, p63-MAPK, p63MAPK, Extracellular Signal-regulated Kinase 4, ERK4, ERK-4, Mitogen-activated Protein Kinase 4, MAP Kinase 4, MAPK 4, MAPK4, PRKM4)
The heterogeneous expression of human MAP (Mitogen Activated Protein) kinase isoforms in differentiated tissues may reflect the diversity of the signal transduction pathways in differentiated cells. MAP kinases also known as erks have been established to function as important mediators of signal transduction by growth factor receptors. Several components of the MAP kinase signal transduction pathway have been demonstrated to be oncogenically activated in malignant tumors. The genes that encode MAP kinases therefore represent potential targets for carcinogenic penetration. These include the p63 MAP kinase (erk-3 related) 18q 12-21 gene loci site.
