JNK signaling pathway

Tuesday 2 December 2003

The JNK pathway is activated by many stimuli including inflammatory factors such as IL-1 and TNF and activates c-jun transcriptional activation.

JUN (c-Jun), as part of AP-1, activates immediate early genes that are rapidly activated in response to growth factors or inflammatory signals.
