Protein Information
Name MAP2K7
Synonyms JNKK2, MEK7, MKK7, PRKMK7, SKK4
Function Dual specificity protein kinase which acts as an essential component of the MAP kinase signal transduction pathway. Essential component of the stress-activated protein kinase/c-Jun N-terminal kinase (SAP/JNK) signaling pathway. With MAP2K4/MKK4, is the one of the only known kinase to directly activate the stress-activated protein kinase/c-Jun N-terminal kinases MAPK8/JNK1, MAPK9/JNK2 and MAPK10/JNK3. MAP2K4/MKK4 and MAP2K7/MKK7 both activate the JNKs by phosphorylation, but they differ in their preference for the phosphorylation site in the Thr-Pro-Tyr motif. MAP2K4/MKK4 shows preference for phosphorylation of the Tyr residue and MAP2K7/MKK7 for the Thr residue. The monophosphorylation of JNKs on the Thr residue is sufficient to increase JNK activity indicating that MAP2K7/MKK7 is important to trigger JNK activity, while the additional phosphorylation of the Tyr residue by MAP2K4/MKK4 ensures optimal JNK activation. Has a specific role in JNK signal transduction pathway activated by proinflammatory cytokines. The MKK/JNK signaling pathway is also involved in mitochondrial death signaling pathway, including the release cytochrome c, leading to apoptosis.
Cellular Location Nucleus. Cytoplasm.
Tissue Location Ubiquitous; with highest level of expression in skeletal muscle. Isoform 3 is found at low levels in placenta, fetal liver, and skeletal muscle.

c-Jun NH2-terminal protein kinase (JNK), a distant member of the mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase family, regulates gene expression in response to various extracellular stimuli. MKK7, a novel member of the MAP kinase kinase family, was phosphorylated and activated by MEKK1, a MAP kinase kinase kinase in the JNK signaling cascade. MKK7 activity was also stimulated by constitutively active forms of Rac and Cdc42Hs, members of the Rho small GTP-binding protein family (1). endogenous MKK7 was activated by treatment with the growth factor interleukin-3 (but not interleukin-4), or by ligation of CD40, the B-cell antigen receptor, or the receptor for the Fc fragment of immunoglobulin. MKK7 was also activated when cells were exposed to heat, UV irradiation, anisomycin, hyperosmolarity or the pro-inflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor-alpha, suggesting that MKK7 is involved in many physiological pathways (2).
