Overview:

MEK2 is the member of MAPK kinase (MAPKK) family of signaling protein kinases. MEK2 is a dual-specificity kinase that activates the extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and mitogen-activated protein (MAP) kinase upon agonist binding to receptors. MEK2 plays a key role in the Ras/Raf/MEK/ERK mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathways (1). Approximately 30% of all human cancers have a constitutively activated MAPK pathway, and constitutive activation of MEK2 results in cellular transformation. The ERK/MAP kinase cascade regulates cell growth and differentiation (2).
