About

Mitogen-activating protein kinases are serine/threonine protein kinases that respond to extracellular stimuli and regulate various cellular activities, such as apoptosis, gene expression, mitosis, differentiation and immune responses. The MAP kinase family consists of four major subfamilies of related proteins that make up interrelated signal transduction cascades activated by stimuli, such as growth factors, stress, cytokines and inflammation. Deregulation of these pathways can lead to various disorders, such as cancer, autoimmune diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, cardiac hypertrophy, etc. Therefore almost any area of biology, biomedicine and clinical science is more or less involved in the research, which includes MAP kinases.

Aim: MAP Kinases is an international, peer-reviewed online journal, publishing articles in all areas of biology and medicine relevant to mitogen activated protein kinases.

Scope: biochemistry, protein structure, cell biology, molecular biology, pharmacology, neurobiology, molecular endocrinology, molecular oncology, clinical oncology, developmental biology, physiology and proteomics.

Ultrasensitive MAPK/Erk activation in absence of protein synthesis in Xenopus oocytes

The mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) cascade in Xenopus oocytes exhibits an all-or-none, ultrasensitive response, which is believed to result from a positive feed-back loop. Here we describe a...
