Also known as

Summary
Enables MAP kinase kinase activity; phosphatase activator activity; and protein serine/threonine kinase activator activity. Involved in bone development; negative regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis; and osteoblast differentiation. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including MAPK cascade; cardiac muscle contraction; and positive regulation of MAP kinase activity. Predicted to be located in cytosol and nucleoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; early conceptus; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Pick's disease; cervical cancer; ovarian carcinoma; progressive supranuclear palsy; and restrictive cardiomyopathy. Orthologous to human MAP2K6 (mitogen-activated protein kinase kinase 6). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
