C-Jun N-Terminal Kinase JNK kinase

«c-Jun N-terminal kinase (JNKs), were originally identified as kinase that bind and phosphorylate c-Jun on Ser-63 and Ser-73 within its transcriptional activation domain. They belong to the mitogen-activated protein kinase family, and are responsive to stress stimuli, such as cytokines, ultraviolet irradiation, heat shock, and osmotic shock. They also play a role in T cell differentiation and the cellular apoptosis pathway. Activation occurs through a dual phosphorylation of threonine (Thr) and tyrosine (Tyr) residues within a Thr-Pro-Tyr motif located in kinase subdomain VIII. Activation is carried out by two MAP kinase kinase, MKK4 and MKK7, and JNK can be inactivated by Ser/Thr and Tyr protein phosphatases.[1] It has been suggested that this signaling pathway contributes to inflammatory responses in mammals and insects» (wikipedia)
