UniProt functional annotation for Q13163

UniProt code: Q13163.

Organism: Homo sapiens (Human).
Taxonomy: Eukaryota; Metazoa; Chordata; Craniata; Vertebrata; Euteleostomi; Mammalia; Eutheria; Euarchontoglires; Primates; Haplorrhini; Catarrhini; Hominidae; Homo.
Function: Acts as a scaffold for the formation of a ternary MAP3K2/MAP3K3-MAP3K5-MAPK7 signaling complex. Activation of this pathway appears to play a critical role in protecting cells from stress-induced apoptosis, neuronal survival and cardiac development and angiogenesis.
Catalytic activity: ATP + a protein = ADP + a phosphoprotein.
Cofactor: Magnesium.
Subunit: Interacts with PARD6A, MAP3K3 and MAPK7. Forms a complex with SQSTM1 and PRKCZ or PRKCI (By similarity). Interacts with Yersinia yopJ.
Tissue specificity: Expressed in many adult tissues. Abundant in heart and skeletal muscle.
Domain: Binds MAP3K2/MAP3K3 and MAPK7 via non-overlapping residues of the OPR domain. This domain also mediates interactions with SQSTM1 and PARD6A (By similarity).
Ptm: Activated by phosphorylation on Ser/Thr by MAP kinase kinase kinases (By similarity).
Ptm: Yersinia yopJ may acetylate Ser/Thr residues, preventing phosphorylation and activation, thus blocking the MAPK signaling pathway.
Similarity: Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. STE Ser/Thr protein kinase family. MAP kinase kinase subfamily.
Similarity: Contains 1 OPR domain.
Similarity: Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
