Regulation of the ERK MAP kinase cascade by the Eph family of receptor tyrosine kinases.
Written in English
Members of the Eph family of proteins were identified as the first family of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) specifically able to attenuate of ERK signalling in cells of varying origin. This downregulation occurs at the level of Ras, and is dependent on the presence of functional p120Ras GTPase activating protein (GAP), a negative regulator of the Ras-ERK cascade, which associates with the Eph receptors. Furthermore, the ability of Eph receptors to downregulate Ras-ERK signalling correlates with neurite retraction in cultured neuronal cell systems, and the inhibition of Eph receptor-induced decrease in Ras-GTP levels severely impairs growth cone collapse. Moreover, we have selectively engineered Eph receptors that can stabilize or activate ERK through rational introduction of Grb2-binding motifs into the receptor EphB2. These experiments revealed the presence of secondary RasGAP docking motifs in EphB2; and show that through abrogation of RasGAP association, and concomitant introduction of Grb2 binding sites, Eph signalling can be effectively switched from inhibiting to stimulating the ERK cascade. In certain cell types however, Eph receptors function as classical RTKs, with ligand stimulation leading to recruitment of ShcA and Grb2, and subsequent ERK activation. These studies of Eph receptors reveal a unique and novel signalling mode for this family of RTKs, with significant implications for understanding of the physiological roles of these proteins.

Receptor tyrosine kinases are a subclass of cell-surface growth-factor receptors with an intrinsic, ligand-controlled tyrosine-kinase activity. They regulate diverse functions in normal cells and Cited by: Summary. The MAP kinases ERK1 and ERK2 represent a subfamily of the protein kinases with a significant role in hormonal signal transduction. They are ubiquitous, growth factor-stimulated protein kinases that phosphorylate and thereby modulate the properties of many proteins that have key regulatory : M. H. Cobb, J. E. Hepler, E. Zhen, D.

Overview. Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTK)s are the high affinity cell surface receptors for many polypeptide growth factors, cytokines and the ninety unique tyrosine kinase genes idenitified in the human genome, 58 encode receptor tyrosine kinase proteins. Receptor tyrosine kinases have been shown to be not only key regulators of normal cellular processes but also to have a. Kinase Classification: Group CMGC: Family MAPK. The MAPKs (Mitogen Activated Protein Kinase) are the final kinases of the MAPK cascade, which relay signals from the cell surface for growth, stress and other best-known MAPKs include Erk, which relays growth signals from the ras/raf pathway and receptor kinases, and the JNK and p38 subfamilies, which relay various stress signals.
-Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) recognize them-Binding of the ligand initiates a signal-transduction cascase including Ras (a monomeric G-protein)-Ras passes the signal to downstream effectorsChanges in the gene expression to move into S phase. Receptor Tyrosine Kinases (RTKs) are widely expressed transmembrane proteins that act as receptors for growth factors, neurotrophic factors, and other extracellular signaling molecules. Upon ligand binding, they undergo tyrosine phosphorylation at specific residues in the cytoplasmic tail.

Eph receptors (Ephs, after erythropoietin-producing human hepatocellular receptors) are a group of receptors that are activated in response to binding with Eph receptor-interacting proteins (Ephrins).Ephs form the largest known subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs). Both Eph receptors and their corresponding ephrin ligands are membrane-bound proteins that require direct cell-cell InterPro: IPR ERK1/2 MAP kinases: structure, function, and regulation.

This cascade participates in the regulation of a large variety of processes including cell adhesion, cell cycle progression, cell migration, cell survival, differentiation, metabolism, proliferation, and by: The linear sequence of Raf → MEK → ERK constitutes the ERK cascade.
Although the ERK cascade is activated through growth factor-regulated receptor protein tyrosine kinases, they are also modulated through G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs).

Introduction Tyrosine kinases are important mediators of the signaling cascade, determining key roles in diverse biological processes like growth, differentiation, metabolism and apoptosis in response to external and internal stimuli. A tyrosine kinase is an enzyme that can transfer a phosphate group from ATP to a protein in a cell.
In mammals, these are ERKs (extracellular-signal-regulated kinases), JNKs (Jun amino-terminal kinases), and p38/SAPKs (stress-activated protein kinases). ERK family members possess a TEY motif in the activation segment and can be subdivided into two groups: the classic ERKs that consist mainly of a kinase domain (ERK1 and ERK2) and the larger.

TYROSINE KINASE by: Mary Jean D. Somcio 2. INTRODUCTION• Protein kinases are a group of enzymes that possess a catalytic subunit that transfers the gamma (terminal) phosphate from nucleotide triphosphates (often ATP) to one or more amino acid residues in a protein substrate side chain, resulting in a conformational change affecting protein function.Abstract.
Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) and their cellular signaling pathways play important roles in normal development and homeostasis. Aberrations in their activation or signaling leads to many pathologies, especially cancers, motivating the development of a variety of drugs that block RTK signaling that have been successfully applied for the treatment of many cancers.
