Abstract

Mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) has been known to play a critical role in the regulation of the carcinogenesis in human cancers. In an effort to understand the functional role of the MAPK in the carcinogenesis of human gastric tissues, we examined the changes of MAPK levels in human gastric adenocarcinoma. We found that increased MAPK activity was accompanied by overexpression of mitogen-activated protein kinase phosphatase-1 (MKP-1), suggesting that signaling pathways leading to the activation of MAPK and the induction of MKP-1 expression are associated with carcinogenesis of human gastric adenocarcinoma.
