Mitogen-activated protein kinase 8
Gene Name
C-Jun N-terminal kinase 1; JNK-46; JNK1; Stress-activated protein kinase JNK1; MAPK8
Target Type
Clinical Trial
Disease Brain injury [ICD10: S09.90]
Neurodegenerative disease [ICD9: 330-337; ICD10: G30-G32]
Solid tumours [ICD9: 140-199, 210-229; ICD10: C00-D48]
Responds to activation by environmental stress and pro- inflammatory cytokines by phosphorylating a number of transcription factors, primarily components of ap-1 such as c-jun and atf2 and thus regulates ap-1 transcriptional activity.
