MAP kinase kinase kinase
There are 15 genes:
- MAP3K1 (aka MEKK1)
- MAP3K3 (aka MEKK3)
- MAP3K7 (aka MEKK7)
- MAP3K11 (aka MEKK11)
MEKK1 activates MAPK8/JNK by phosphorylation of its activator SEK1(MAP2K4). MAP3K3 directly regulates the MAPK8/JNK and extracellular signal-regulated protein kinase (ERK) pathways by activating SEK and MEK1/2 respectively; it does not regulate the p38 pathway. MAP3K7(TAK1)participate in regulation of transcription by transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta).
