Gene: Map2k1 (mitogen activated protein kinase kinase 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Map2k1
Name: mitogen activated protein kinase kinase 1
Description: Exhibits ATP binding activity, MAP kinase kinase activity, and enzyme binding activity; involved in several processes, including establishment of vesicle localization, positive regulation of cellular metabolic process, and regulation of signal transduction; localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm, glutamatergic synapse, and neuron projection; colocalizes with the microtubule; used to study cataract and prostate adenocarcinoma; orthologous to human MAP2K1 (mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 1); PARTICIPATES IN the extracellular signal-regulated Raf/Mek/Erk signaling pathway; altered extracellular signal-regulated Raf/Mek/Erk signaling pathway; ceramide signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol 3-benzoate; 2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: dual specificity mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 1; ERK activator kinase 1; MAP kinase kinase 1; MAP kinase/Erk kinase 1; MAPK/ERK kinase 1; MAPKK 1; Mek1; mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 1
