Scientific Background :Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 4 (MEK4 or MKK4) is dual specificity kinase of the STE7 family that phosphorylates and activates JNK1 and -2 as well as p38. MKK4 preferentially phosphorylates the tyrosine residue of JNKs. Mediates a variety of physiological and pathophysiological processes such as responses to cellular stresses and inflammatory cytokines. MKK4 is important for carcinogenesis, a loss-off-function mutation in MKK4 was found in lung and pancreatic tumors. Conversely, a pro-oncogenic role was also found for MKK4.
