Gene: Mapk9 (mitogen-activated protein kinase 9) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mapk9
Name: mitogen-activated protein kinase 9
Description: Exhibits several functions, including ATP binding activity; JUN kinase activity; and cysteine-type endopeptidase activator activity involved in apoptotic process. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to cytokine stimulus; positive regulation of cellular metabolic process; and regulation of protein modification process. Localizes to several cellular components, including cytosol; mitochondrion; and perikaryon. Used to study type 2 diabetes mellitus. Biomarker of pre-malignant neoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in colorectal cancer; pancreatic adenocarcinoma; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human MAPK9 (mitogen-activated protein kinase 9); PARTICIPATES IN c-Jun N-terminal kinases MAPK signaling pathway; FasL mediated signaling pathway; glypican signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 1,3-dichloropropan-2-ol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: c-Jun N-terminal kinase 2; MAP kinase 9; MAPK 9; p54-alpha; SAPK; SAPK-alpha; stress activated protein kinase alpha II; stress-activated protein kinase JNK2
