Scientific Background :ASK1, also known as MAPKKK5, activates MKK3, MKK4 (SEK1), and MKK6. Overexpression of ASK1 induces apoptotic cell death, and ASK1 is activated in cells treated with tumor necrosis factor-alpha (1). ASK1 interacts with members of the TRAF family and is activated by TRAF2 in the TNF-signaling pathway. After activation by TRAF2, ASK1 activates MKK4, which in turn activates JNK. Thus, ASK1 is a mediator of TRAF2-induced JNK activation (2).
