Mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase kinase 5 is a serine/threonine protein kinase involved in kinase signalling cascades in the cell. MAP3K5 plays an important role in cell differentiation and survival, apoptosis, innate immune and inflammatory responses, and oxidative stress response.
Activated MAP3K5/ASK1 initiates the phosphorylation and activation of several MAP kinase kinases such as MAP2K4/SEK1, MAP2K3/MKK3, MAP2K6/MKK6 and MAP2K7/MKK7, followed by p38 MAPKs and c-jun N-terminal kinases (JNKs), which control the transcription factor activator protein-1 (AP-1).
MAP3K5 can be activated in response to stress signals, ROS; such as H2O2, tumour necrosis factor-α (TNFα) or reduced serum levels. It has been shown that a molecular target of reactive oxygen species (ROS),
Thioredoxin (TXN/Trx), is an inhibitor of MAP3K5.
MAP3K5 plays a role in diseases in which reactive oxygen species (ROS) and/or endoplasmic reticulum stress are causative factors, such as type 2 diabetes, neurodegenerative disorders, cardiovascular diseases, inflammatory diseases, and chronic inflammation-induced carcinogenesis. MAP3K5 may prevent stress-induced disorders and protect from bacterial and viral infection.
